Jump to: navigation, search

The Chronicles Time Line stretches back over 1,000 years from the present time and encompasses many major events which have shaped the current universe into what it is now. You can follow along with the time line or click on each piece for more information.

Time Line Legend The dates kept within the annals of history in Chronicles are related to the founding of the Republic. The Day of Founding marked the first day of the first year After Founding. Times prior to that are referred to as Before Founding. Since the Cataclysm, what few scholars of history can be found in these turbulent times, have set the a new time line with its first day of the first year starting on the date of the Cataclysm and henceforth referred to as Post Cataclysm.

A year within the world of Chronicles is roughly equivalent to a year on our world.

Pre History (???? BF - 148 BF)

The history and state of Indagar prior to the arrival of The Minsheng Empire is mostly unwritten and undiscovered. What is known is that The Forgotten, the Tribes of the Forests, The Stars of Ixohtl, and the people of the the Ramal Nations were already inhabiting the continent, although not in the form of civilization that we know of them today. During this time, these peoples were un-civilized societies lacking even the basics of history or written language. The scholars simply write of them that they were barbaric peoples who had yet to come to know the bounties of science, technology, and civilization.

The Ramal Nations at this time did not exist, the people of the Sand Seas were merely nomadic herders and wanderers, living from the bounties of the desert rivers. Further, the Stars of Ixohtl roamed the entire eastern plains from the foothills of the Spine all the way to the coasts of the east. The People of the Stars have an oral history that dates during this period, and they tell that there were more Stars on the plains than just the three that we know of today and that these Stars were extinguished during the Conquest of Arkland. Further, the Great Forest Tribes also have an oral history in the form of legends which speaks that their civilization, as it is now, thrived in the Great Forest within the Spine and still practiced their worship of The Wild. Their oral history also speaks of The Forgotten, and that no one from the Tribes dare pass the Spine to the west for fear of them.

Not much is known of The Forgotten at all. The Minsheng Empire did not leave a written history of those peoples and instead passed them off into oblivion. What is known is that The Forgotten were the original peoples who claimed the power of The Well.
