"Sea of Swords" of the Paths of Darkness series ends sometime in the Winter of 1370 DR
"Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn" game version ends sometime in the Spring of 1370 DR
"BALDUR'S GATE 2 (part 2): THRONE OF BHAAL" game and novel (The game was developed by BioWare as an expansion story to Shadows of Amn, the Enhanced Edition version is made by Overhaul Games of Beamdog) (Novel version written by Drew Karpyshyn) (Release date (Original): June 22nd, 2001, (Novel): 2001, (Enhanced Edition version released inside BG2:EE), (In-universe date of game: 1370 DR (sometime during the first year of the Sothillisian War), (Novel): 1368 DR???))
Game story synopsis: Not long after saving the elven city Suldanessellar from the vengeful wrath of Jon Irenicus, Gorion's Ward and his/her companions are once again pulled into another adventure. This time, Gorion's Ward must contend with more of his/her siblings, other children of Bhaal, especially five Bhaalspawn that are so powerful, the gods themselves fear their strength, collectively known as The Five. This bloodshed between siblings in the nation of Tethyr, south from Amn, is all for competing for the right to ascend to godhood, becoming Bhaal's successor... Or so they think. Can Gorion's Ward escape his/her destiny? Or will he/she embrace it?
Fun fact: Confusing, isn't it? Why is the novel version of Throne of Bhaal set in 1368 DR? I'll explain, because I've read it (with a grain of salt). The prologue of the ToB novel is set in 1368 DR, but after the prologue ends, the author somehow forgot to make it clear that the rest of the story takes place in the "present day", therefore the continuity of the Baldur's Gate novelization series is seriously thrown out of order, Throne of Bhaal is before Shadows of Amn even though it should be the other way around, because in the novel Jaheira gets killed by Abazigal, and Imoen gets killed off by Sendai, and in the Shadows of Amn novel, Jaheira and Imoen are alive and healthy, except for Jaheira, because she had been recently brought back from the dead from getting killed by Sarevok at the end of the first Baldur's Gate novel. Another reason why the Baldur's Gate games are more canon. The only lore contradiction the Throne of Bhaal game makes is a tavern bartender NPC telling you a rumor that Sythillis or Sothillis, the ogre mage leading the Sothillisian War against the southern regions of Amn is a Bhaalspawn and crossed paths with Bhaalspawn fire giant Yaga Shura and got killed by him. Again, that is just a tavern rumor in the ToB game, and rumors are not always true. Truthfully, the game was wrong about Sythillis/Sothillis, he was NOT a Bhaalspawn, and he and Yaga Shura never crossed paths because Sythillis/Sothillis lived to see the year 1374, holding the city Murann, which is directly west from Trademeet captive even after the war ended.
Fun fact #2: Viekang, the guy who teleports away with a flash of lightning every time he gets scared survived Yaga Shura's attack on Saradush because of Gorion's Ward, and because he is a Bhaalspawn, he lived on for 100 years even though he is human (being a Bhaalsapwn guarantees near longevity for races with normally short lifespans), and he becomes one of the last living Bhaalspawn in the 5th Edition time frame during the events of the Murder in Baldur's Gate tabletop adventure game as the assassin who attempts to kill Abdel Adrian, the alleged hero of Baldur's Gate. Again, there is no way Abdel and Gorion's Ward are the same character, especially after the way Siege of Dragonspear ended. If Abdel were revealed to the people of Baldur's Gate to be a Bhaalspawn and accused of murdering a Grand Duke's child, he would NEVER be treated with love and respect during Murder in Baldur's Gate, even after stopping Grand Duke Valarken's coup 100 years later, let alone be elected as Grand Duke. In the games, Gorion's Ward falls from grace in the eyes of Baldur's Gate and Saradush despite his/her heroics, even the Thayans during Neera's TOB side quest know Gorion's Ward as the "fallen hero of Baldur's Gate". The Grand Dukes would instead appoint Abdel as the hero of Baldur's Gate even if he was not involved in any of the events in the Baldur's Gate games. In other words, Gorion's Ward's reputation falls and is eventually forgotten by history as time passes, while Abdel is considered by many to be the true hero (when he really isn't).

"For Duty & Deity" tabletop adventure game (By Dale Donovan) (Marpenoth "October" to Nightal "December" 1370 DR)
Story synopsis: For over a decade, mystery has surrounded the fate of the lost goddess of trade and wealth, Waukeen. The Golden Lady disappeared during the Time of Troubles and has not been heard from since. Now, in Marpenoth in the Year of the Tankard (1370 DR), a young prophet suffers from disturbing, divine visions that reveal a beautiful, golden-tressed woman imprisoned on a far plane of existence by some great evil.
The leader of Waukeen's church believes that these visions mean Waukeen is alive but trapped in the deadly and dangerous Abyss. A party of adventurers is dedicated to peeling back the mystery of the Golden Lady's fate. Their route takes them to the plane-spanning Infinite Staircase and beyond, to the Abyss, the home of the demonic tanar'ri. The heroes must brave the dangers of the Abyss and rescue the lost goddess from the clutches of one of the most brilliant and dangerous of all Abyssal lords.
Fun fact: This adventure is very important to the D&D lore because it involves the rescue of Waukeen, the goddess known as the Merchant's Friend, who has been absent ever since the Time of Troubles. Because of her absence, clerics that worship her could only cast Level 1 and 2 clerical spells. In Baldur's Gate 2 Shadows of Amn, during Mazzy's personal side quest about curing her poisoned sister, the head cleric of Waukeen in Trademeet named Overgold says that several of his fellow clerics have given up on worshiping Waukeen because of her absence, not knowing whether she is dead or captured by someone. The latter was the answer.https://www.amazon.com/Duty-Deity-A...;qid=1562646580&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Tos'un knows that he cannot survive the journey back through the Underdark alone. Feeling helpless on the surface world, he lets out his rage by attacking orcs with the powerful sentient blade Khazid'hea.
Meanwhile Drizzt Do'Urden and Innovindil search for the body of Ellifain Tuuserail, the moon elf girl that Drizzt saved from being killed during the drow raiding party during the Homeland novel, but she eventually grew up wanting revenge, believing Drizzt along with his brethren killed her mother and friends, and crossed paths with Drizzt again in Sea of Swords, dueling against him and resulting in a draw. Ellifain died while Drizzt was healed even though he tried to beg Bruenor to heal her first. However, they find that the orc hordes have not yet disbanded after the (so Drizzt and Innovindil believe) death of King Obould. Upon inspection, the two elves find that the orcs are building a gate upon a trail further fortifying the orc kingdom. Realizing there is nothing they can do, they continue their journey objective.

But everything changes when a hunting accident leaves Tal infected with lycanthropy. All those wishes and most of Tal's problems are suddenly insignificant compared to controlling the dangerous beast within him. The priests of two gods keep offering him answers—for a price—and every night he delays may cost more lives than his family and friends have to offer.https://www.amazon.com/Black-Wolf-F...;qid=1562646964&s=audible&sr=1-1
