Hello everyone! This thread is the result of a concerted effort in the Pools to straighten out the often tangled lore concerning the pre-player timeline of the game. There are doubtless going to be more than a few places where it conflicts with facets of existing lore, as it represents the unification of multiple years of multiple story arcs of multiple Gods, but we're doing our best to keep it coherent and sane.
This material is borderline OOC - almost all the material exists in-game if you know where to look, but hasn't yet been collected in an easily accessible place. We'll be looking at a means of making it available to characters, but for the moment please don't set about rattling off the entire history of the world based on an OOC reference text.
Obviously the timeline doesn't cover everything, and is missing numerous details - if there's a specific topic you're curious about (such as the Silver Spire and Kelsys, or a specific area), post a comment and we'll work it into the timeline.
If you happen to have a book or newspost IC that references or supports any of the uncited entries in the timeline, it would be appreciated if you could post the replica number and title/board and number here for me to add to the citations.
