Albarian Timeline

Jump to: navigation, search


Note -- This timeline covers the continent of Albaria, the landmass on Elanthia to the south of Kermoria (Kermoria being the continent where the Five Provinces are). Cloaked in a near-endless blanket of snow, Albaria's history has unfolded along a much different path than that of the north. Six races have occupied Albaria and shaped its being. They are the Albarian Races.

Note: The time in parentheses match the timeframes with solidly established Kermorian dates as closely as possible.

The Luethran First Age (~12000 - ~6000 BL)

I. The Luethran First Age covers the continent of Albaria from the creation of the Luethra race until the Second Age. The First Age is marked by Luethra construction of their nation, and the beginning of their domination over Albaria.

About the Albarian Timeline

Here, employing a style similar to his timeline of Kermoria, GM Cadaya describes the long history of the Albarian continent. It is of particular interest for those who wish to learn more about the Gorbesh and their interactions with the other peoples of the continent, including the Gnomes, Sharek, and Ocular. It is particularly useful in understanding the conditions which led to the Gorbesh War.

Here on Elanthipedia, this timeline has been broken into two parts: Albarian Timeline and Albarian Timeline (Gorbesh Imperial Age). The Elanthipedia also has other Timelines available.
