Elanthian Timeline 2

From elanthipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Building off of Atrathien's timeline, GM Cadaya released this extensive timeline at Simucon 2001. It, too, is mostly focused on events taking place in Kermoria. Much more detailed and complete than Atrathien's version, this timeline diverges from its predecessor in how some events are dated. It's treatment of the politics of the Seven-Pointed Empire is extensive.

Cadaya subsequently posted this timeline to the play.net boards in Talk to Simutronics GM Announcements [1] on June 12, 2001.

The Elanthipedia has several other Timelines available.



Greetings,

Beneath this little introduction, you'll find the new Official Elanthian Timeline, which was also presented at the Elanthian History Seminar at SimuCon. I'm posting this in both the History folder (Social Aspects category) and the GM Announcements folder, for those many roleplayers who would have an interest in this, but just don't have the time to read every folder on the boards. The formatting isn't as nice as it is in Microsoft Word, but the information comes across.

Enjoy!
Gamemaster Cadaya

THE ELANTHIAN TIMELINE
Note -- This timeline covers only Kermoria. Kermoria is the continent on the planet of Elanthia where most of our adventures take place; the Provinces of Ilithi, Therengia, Forfedhdar, and Zoluren are here, and the Qi Archipelago is right off the continent's coast.

Indices

Index I. The Age of Myths: Prehistory. Is anything from this period of time true? Much of the knowledge of this period consists of religious stories, legends, and oral tradition. There are no records from this age, as civilization was yet to truly begin forming. They're legends -- take them with a grain of salt.

II. The Time of the Clans: The Time of the Clans marks the period of Elanthian history where the continent's people were scattered, formed into innumerous small (and often violent) groups. Very few cities existed in this era, as it was rare for so many people to be gathered together in one group (not to mention that many of the clans were nomadic). Without cities, there were also no places to store records and traditions, so most information was handed down orally; many accounts of this period will lack historical authenticity, and will be more in the way of symbolic stories. There is little in the way of accurate dating, as no universal record keeping system had been established.

III. The Imperial Age: From Akroeg's Clan-consolidation to Teiro's capture of Throne City, this period of Elanthian history covers the rule of an Empire over the bulk of the continent. Bringing relative peace and stability, the Seven Star Empire allowed learning, culture, and the arts to flourish, along with politics. Those records surviving from this period are marked with a high degree of accuracy, both in content and in dating. This is also the first period a universal form of dating was utilized, as the Verekian Calendar was invented here and applied through the entire Seven Star Empire.

IV. The Time of Chaos: The Time of Chaos is a period of Elanthian history defined by near constant upheaval, turmoil, and warfare. The Empire, which had ruled the lands for so long, was gone, and with it went the stability and order it offered. Many records from this time were lost, and it will prove difficult to accurately date many events during this period, as the Verekian Calendar has gone out of use. The later creation of the Trade Calendar would enable historical accuracy again, but briefly, before the rise of the Dragon Priests.

V. The Dragon's Empire: This time period marks the age of the rule of Dzree's Dragon Priest Empire, from its founding until her death. The Priests carried out a bizarre quest for truth and fact, but their devotion was only to their version of history -- anything else was to be purged. They produced many scholarly works which contradicted previously held beliefs, and many records they disagreed with were destroyed (and the tellers, silenced).

VI. Modern Times: You guessed it. The Modern Times, from the fall of the Dragon Priests up till today (and tomorrow, and the day after...). Civilation is in high swing, things are relatively peaceful and prosperous. Information is generally extremely detailed, well-dated, and accurate, for the most part, though a few folk legends and tall tales crop up from time to time, but nothing of the magnitude that occured prior to History.
