  • The Eras of Chronicles of Darkness (Dark Eras and others)

    This project is borne out of several different desires, but I thought it would be neat to compile all of the historical eras that we know about in one place so that we can see the relationships between them in both location and space. I mean see literally too, since I've been building timelines for them in my massive world history project, and since I can actually post easy to view images online if I restrict the timeline in temporally and geographically.

    Each image is in a spoiler to keep it from messing with people's screens. I'm posting the link to the original sources too, which are on my DeviantArt Page. I've marked the actual eras with a white background on the timeline while contextual dates both before and after the era are on a grey background. These are all very much works in progress, so if you see something, let me know and I will update the timeline. I'm not posting everything at once, but I will get around to it.

    EDIT: Since there is a limit to the number of images you can have in one post, I've included the first four timelines here and the rest have been moved to seperate posts at the bottom of the first page and the top of the second. I've kept all of the eras names, dates, and references in the first post to make comparisions handy.

    How did you determine the start of the Ur-Sag's reign?

      Complete and total guesswork. The most that I could go off of was the fact that the Ur-Sag fought with King Gudea close to the end of his reign. I went for 12 years since a) it wasn't divisible by 5, b) that seemed liked enough time for the Ur-Sag to get complacent as the gods of Bau, and c) that gives some time time to play with for creating self-contained chronicles. By my own admission, I could be completely wrong on those dates since that era is the one we have the least info on by far.

        Remind me, other than happening during the reign of Justinian, are there any "real-history" events that firmly anchor Slouching Toward Byzantium's cut off year?

        I was just wondering because I had pondered using it overlapped with the Third Turn.

          Not really. Slouching Towards Byzantium is written specifically for 543 while Justinian is sick with the plague that has broken out in Constantinople. Since it gives more history than that single year, and since a single year era is a pain to read on the timeline, I extended it by five years on each side (which I also did with Into the Cold and Requiem for Regina). I'd strongly encourage that overlap though since the Third Sothic Turn is spitting distance away and pretty much all the Storyteller Characters should still be usable.

              Thank you! I'll take a look and see if there is anything useful I can tease out of them.

                I'm hoping Iberian Nights intersects nicely with the Mutapa Empire era we're getting in the DE Companion.
