Storyline timeline

Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is an attempt to catalog the dates by year of events within the world of Elanthia. Both major and minor events or storylines are included below.

  • Major events, storylines, or quests are of exceptional size, scope, and years of exection usually encompassing multiple areas of the game or its player base.
  • Minor events, storylines, or quests are brief in length, usually over a few days, or recurring characters and their stories that don't tie into the larger picture. These can occasionally be player storylines that gain occasional GM support or are later adopted as canon.

(Most storylines prior to 1995 are usually not considered canon material due to copyright issues with Iron Crown Enterprises when Simutronics and I.C.E allowed the business relationship to expire.)
