Welcome fellow curious RPG enjoyer. On this page, you will find critical information about the Baldur’s Gate chronology. Shall we begin?
First of all, we should set something straight. Baldur’s Gate and other D&D games are using the Dalereckoning year system.
Dalereckoning is taken from the Year of Sunrise, 1 DR, when the Standing Stone was raised by the elves of Cormanthyr and the human Dalesfolk. Since this time, humans were permitted by the Elven Court to settle in the more open regions of the forests.
Dalereckoning (DR) means Freeman’s Reckoning.
So, latest game of the series, Baldur’s Gate 3 is set in 1492 DR. More than +100 years later from the events on Baldur’s Gate 2.

Well look at that, there are many D&D games out there. But unfortunately most of them are really old, even ancient. In this day and age, most of them feels unplayable.

As can be seen, first two Baldur’s Gate games are in one year apart. However, Baldur’s Gate III events happens +100 years later. Still, we encounter some similar characters, such as Volo. Is he immortal? Only gods know…
