Timeline (Voidworld)

From Constructed Worlds
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The timeline of the voidworld spans thousands of years and is divided into several eras. The year zero was set by the Golden Empire right after the construction of Fundamentum on Krag. As such, events that occured before it's founding are noted as "BF" (Before Fundamentum) and events that happened afterwards are noted as "AF" (After Fundamentum). Years with multiple events that occur at different times have said events listed independently and ordered from least to most recent.
