Gazetteer Timeline

Monday, March 17th, 2008

The Pathfinder Chronicles Gazetteer presents—in addition to chapters about the various nations, gods, and races—a short chapter devoted to history and cosmology. In that chapter is a long timeline of important events in Golarion's past. The following presents a peek at some of the historical events important to various modules and other supplements. And yes, some of these connections are pretty tenuous, but the point is to illustrate how hard we've worked to show how things interconnect in Golarion. So please enjoy!

–5293: Earthfall. The Starstone tumbles to Golarion, creating the Inner Sea and kicking off a thousand years of darkness. Azlant and Thassilon destroyed. Elves depart Golarion.
c. –3472: Founding of Ancient Osirion.
–2323: Shory aeromancers establish Kho as the first of their legendary flying cities.
–1498: The Four Pharaohs of Ascension join forces to rule Osirion, initiating that empire's Second Age.
1: Absalom founded. Aroden, the Last Azlant, raises the Starstone from the depths of the Inner Sea and becomes a living god.
1893: Norgorber passes the Test of the Starstone, following Aroden's path to divinity.
2765: Cayden Cailean drunkenly survives the Test of the Starstone.
3832: Iomedae, heroine of the Shining Crusade, successfully attempts the Test of the Starstone and becomes Aroden's Herald.
4307: Foundation of the Pathfinder Society in Absalom.
4407: Cheliax founds Korvosa in the frontier region of Varisia. (Yes, of course I'd make sure this gets mentioned.)
4508: The Forest King Narven dies in the Arthfell Forest.
4606: Aroden dies, leaving the Empire of Cheliax without a divine mandate.
4640: Diabolists of the House of Thrune wrest control of Cheliax, brutally ending three decades of vicious civil war. A dark shadow envelops the empire.
4697: The Goblinblood Wars shake Isger.
4707: Adventurers reopen the Bloodsworn Vale. Pharaoh Khemet III opens the ruins of Osirion to foreign explorers.
