When your games span multiple campaign settings it rapidly becomes essential to figure our their relative timelines. When dealing with multiple groups operating in different portions of the timeline this becomes even more vital.

The following is a work in progress as I synch up the events of the past several campaigns with the cannon events of the settings. The majority of the heavy lifting is finished, but please let me know if you find conflicts so I can rectify them.

The Upheavals
Sometimes massive events reverberate through the planes of the Great Wheel. Here are the most important ones.

Alternate Future Timelines
Several different futures have been glimpsed, but which will come to pass no one knows.

Use of the Olven Calender was chosen as an appropriate baseline here because 1) it is tangible evidence of elven influence, 2) I felt it appropriate considering Greyhawk’s status as first AD&D game world and 3) it is the calender that Paul Westermeyer used as his baseline. Without his work this campaign specific project would not have been possible.

Original Compilation of Cannon Events and Dates by Paul Westermeyer , Addition of events from Dark Sun, Mystara, Ravenloft, Planescape, Ghostwalk, Temporum Sphaera and the Planejammer Campaign Series by Loki. Adjustments to original research works necessary to reconcile them with Planejammer continuity also made by Loki.
