The following is a general timeline of Qairn’s recorded history, based on the Gouzim-Hrrlor calendar:

Campaign Timeline

The Nameless Time

The stretch of eons before the rise of Arkhosia, before the advent of modern dating systems, before the fall of the Nameless Empire, is colloquially known among those learned enough to know of it as “The Nameless Time.” Practically nothing is confirmed about this period in history, as the giant’s societal structure, culture or even language has yet to be penetrated. As far as most scholars are concerned, the modern world began with Arkhosia’s founding.

The Arkhosian Era (A.E.)

A seven hundred year stretch of time that saw the rise and fall of the dragonborn empire, The Arkhosian Era dominates the majority of recorded time. During this eon, Colcambria, Obalta and parts of Eregia, Irmina and Dread Salarza were conquered by the crusading dragonborn, the goliath people were enslaved and, at the very final moment, a moon crashed.

A Note About Imaldi Dating

From what little information expatriate eladrin and the gnomish population have been willing to share, the dwarves haven’t necessarily be able to construct an accurate timeline of the history of Imald, as there doesn’t seem to be one. The Imaldi don’t keep traditional records, as they believe their home to be a paradise beyond the need for reflection. They do keep genealogies, however, and to extrapolate from the hereditary history of the three regencies, the Imaldi culture appears to be over four thousand years old, an assertion most dwarven scholars find difficult to swallow.
