    Gah, I didn't know there was a limit to the number of images I could have in one post. I'm going to have to do some reorganizing, starting here.

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

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

    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.

    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.
