Nine Hundred Years ago

The Library is visited by an Agent, and its researchers are consulted, asking about significant events that occurred in the local region roughly 900 years ago. Particularly if it was cataclysmic.
[The librarian appear puzzled and say they cannot think of any pin pointed event 900 years ago, and ask you to be more specific.]

The chief librarian explains casually, as one would to a small school child that roughly nine hundred years ago, some time between 376 DR and 432 DR, Cormyr was invaded by many dragons, including Thauglor, laying waste to virtually all of the settlements in the country. It was then raided by orcs from the Stonelands, who occupied the King's Forest until they were finally driven out in 429 DR by King Duar Obarskyr. By 432 DR however, many noble families had left Cormyr for the Dalelands or Waterdeep, or split into small factional bands. The city of Suzail was sold to Magrath the Minotaur and his pirates by a traitor to the crown around this time, and it was after Magrath's death that the Purple Dragon was adopted as the nation's official symbol.
