The Beginning of time- No one is sure quite how long the entirety of the universe has existed but it predates the Elder Gods and Orieon quite significantly
The Birth of the Titans- Orieon, Therax, Sirxrian, and Noxrion formed in the vastness of the Universe.
A Light in the Dark- Orieon formed the cosmos; seeding it with the progenitor races.
Galendar (0 Cycles)- Orieon forms the whole of Orius and creates his twelve children.
The Terror (120 Cycles)- Noxrion appears and wipes out the first populations of Orcs.
The Outer Door (121 Cycles)- To protect his Children Orieon seals Galendar, Arcadia, The Divine, Fate, and Elemental Planes alongside eight other worlds behind the Wall of Light. Orieon creates the Outer Door.
Oreion is Slain (2558 Cycles)- No one is sure what killed the Titan Orieon but his death Shattered the world of Orius within the wall of light leaving it a magically contained and partially destroyed world with only four continents. The other eight worlds remain unaffected but largely separated from Oriusr due to the Titans grave and lingering life force.
The last of the True Dragons Die out (3003 Cycles)- With the death of their Creator the True Dragons quickly die out as Orieons light fades.
The God’s Walk (6 atf)- The Gods Orieon created discover that they are not the only Divines present in Galendar and the War of the Divines begins.
The End of Divinity (256 atf)- The Gods of Galendar finally end their conflict with the other Realms of Orius. Galendar is confined to part of the largest continent. The Gods of the Southern and Northern Kingdoms are born and the Empires of Lethes, Stygian and the Glimmering Isle consolidate into fledgling nations.
The Aberration Wars (3354 aft)- 1100 years after the death of the Titan; Orius is invaded by the Aberrations after the Outer Door is breached. The war rages for nearly 70 years leveling the Kingdoms of Galendar as they other nations of Orius refuse to come to the aid of the Middle Kingdoms. When the Aberrations manage to Curse the Binders and Seal the Twelve Divines in the Divine Plane the Northern and Southern Kingdoms finally come to the aid of the Middle Kingdoms and with their combined might they manage to wipe out the Aberrations forces which had started the process of converting large tracts of what is now the Shadowmarch into toxic volatile swamps. The Aberrations succeed in creating the Everwinter on the border between the Middle Kingdoms and the Southern Kingdoms effectively obliterating the Southern Kingdoms forces. This effectively isolates the Southern Kingdoms from the rest of the world for the rest of history. The rest of the defenders manage to wipe out the Aberrations scattering the last of them and sealing the breaches into Galendar before finally closing the Outer Door.
The Middle Kingdoms recover and the First Avatars appear (3372 aft)- With the Gods sealed beyond the mortal realms the Gods opt to transfer their powers to Physical Vessels and the Avatar Mantles are created. After the Avatars are created Galendar’s kingdoms form into their current map lines.
The First Stygian War (5010 aft)- After over a thousand years of peace and prosperity in the Middle Kingdoms The Stygian Empire invades. Quickly sweeping across half of Galendar the Stygian war front is halted after it crushes the defenders of Angel’s Landing and burns Westhaven.
Integration (5418-5426 aft)-The eight years following the conquering of Angel’s Landing are followed by a tenuous cease fire. At the end of eight years the Angel’s Landing Resistance force opens into open revolt against the occupying forces in Angel’s Landing
Reclimation (5430-5432 aft)- In the two years following the open revolt of Angel’s Landing a force of Scarab Lord soldiers and exiled heroes from the Stygian Wars led by the newly created Lord of Storms, Christian Highfell, in conjunction with the mysterious assassin Lord Umbral and the original Masters and Mistresses of the Knights of Stars reclaim Angel’s Landing. In the ensuing battle Lord Umbral kills the Twilight God Shezranod using a blade made from a fallen star and the blood of the Titan Orieon. Lord Umbral is dubbed the God-Killer before living Angel’s Landing where Christian begins the process of building the Tower of Stars.
The Second Stygian War (5801-5804 aft)- Almost 400 years later the Stygian Empire returns to attempt to reclaim their hold on Galendar. This time the defenders of Galendar manage to hold Angel’s Landing against the invaders even though much of the Western half of Galendar rally in support of the Stygian empire as much of them are descendents of the original invasion force. Christian Highfell and the Knights of Stars earn a reputation as sell swords as they fight for both sides of the war repeatedly selling to the highest bidder. Neither side is able to dispense with them due to the fact that once they took a contract they fulfilled it.
The Treaty of Angel’s Landing (5805 aft)- The Stygian Empire finally signs a lasting peace accord with Galendar after the death of the Stygian God-King. Kevin’s Watch issues a decree of absolution and province on behalf of Christian Highfell giving him a tract of land outside of Angel’s Landing where he had originally begun construction of the Tower. The decree also prevented any action against Shard or his Knights for their operations on behalf of the Stygian Empire.
The appearance of the Stygian Blade (5902-present aft)- not even a hundred years after the treaty of Angel’s Landing a terrorist group calling themselves the Stygian Blade appears and begins carrying out ‘missions’ on behalf of the Stygian Empire. The Stygian Empire has made no comment on the actions of this group and have refused all envoys from Galendar since the Twilight Blades emergence. Two years after their appearance Christian Highfell disappears and Clarisa Silversun inherits the title of Mistress of Stars from her husband. Shortly thereafter the last of the Original Masters leaves as Master of Sight Urthar takes almost all of the Old guard and disappears leaving the Tower of Stars to fight the Twilight Blade in the streets of Angel’s Landing with few veterans and to find the Master of Stars Christian Highfell.
