What are the most interesting time periods that Arcane Age didn't cover?

What regions of the Realms has had big shifts in the past, that could have had an Arcane Age product to show what the region was like before the change happened?

The Ostoria sub-setting Coronoides is doing will be an interesting example viewtopic.php?f=18&t=20167.
Probably also the time before the fall of the drow, when there where many elven realms around.

I had not heard of that before, but according to the Ostoria article on Forgotten Realms Wiki it is covered by Giantcraft and The Grand History of the Realms. I'll have to have a read up on it. :)

Oooh!

Back when Lolth was still Araushnee sounds like a very interesting time, but I think that the War of the Seldarin might be a bit early. I think the Crown Wars were quite some time later. IIRC, there is some information about Ilythiir that might help run a game there. :)

Yes, the Descent of the Drow was 20,000 years after the War of the Seldarine.

There's always Delzoun, although the writers wanted to do Shanatar more.

The Old Empires at their height might be interesting, along with the time right before Narfell and Raumathar destroyed one another.

The Shoon Imperium might be interesting.

The Successor kingdoms to Netheril could always use more exploration.
