Albarian Timeline (Gorbesh Imperial Age)

From elanthipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

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.
