Previous: Gurutama Timeline Revising Part 2
This update is marked by sections I may not consider useful, but may become useful later on.
Is it really necessary that the timeline list when a forest expanded? Maybe not.
But what if we ever run a campaign where it becomes important how old a tree is?
The timeline shows that the oldest trees in a certain section of the world can only have been around for a finite number of years.
This update also shows off another thing that Dawn of Worlds encourages, technological and cultural advancements!
The Dwarves got architecture. The Merfolk got aquatic animal domestication and Avian slaying. The Avians got blood rituals. The Humans got nothing this time, but more will come.
3488 BE: The Merfolk domesticated aquatic animals. The people of the sea became experts at dolphin, shark, and whale riding. The cetaceans were used to pull underwater carts along with trout and bass. Whales were used to haul larger vehicles. Rare visits above water were achieved via riding in tortoise or turtle palanquins.
3322 BE: The fertile ash from the primal volcano promoted the growth of forests in an outward crescent from the igneous mountain.
3167 BE: The Metal Tiers rumbled out of the earth as the world matured and ripened.
3039 BE: A great bird was born among the Avians, the immortal wing-prophet, Trebor Ydorg. He founded the cliff city of Zener’hro on the side of Cui-Xoloc and brought the Avians out of their preliterate society and into the light. Trebor organized his people with rituals. Blood sacrifices were absorbed by the great sacred altar at the top of Cui-Xoloc.
2864 BE: Up from the depths of the Maw rose Selcatnet the Eight Armed. Selcatnet was a gift sent by Drolfo to his industrious children, the Merfolk. Selcatnet became the guardian and protector of Drolfo’s Cove.
2777 BE: The great Dwarven city of Golden Mach was founded in the west. It reigned for centuries as the greatest architectural achievement of the land.
2600 BE: Humanity grew increasingly barbaric as the forest spread around them.
2492 BE: The Avians’ knowledge of blood magic grew with each passing year. Hrududu’s shade expanded west.
2330 BE: The northern forest continued to expand, now touching both the Maw and the Northern Sea.
2294 BE: The industrious Merfolk along with their faithful servant, Selcatnet, began to dig a channel through the Lower Maw, allowing easy access to the Neck.
2276 BE: The Great Canal is completed.
2269 BE: The trading post, Tortuga, is established in the Fluren Bay.
2244 BE: The Avians viewed the Merfolk traders as only a new form of prey for their blood rituals. The Merfolk soon learned not to trust the Avians. Tortuga’s trading post design was abandoned in favor of that of a fortress. The city became a repository for the best Avian-slaying techniques.
2131 BE: The eastern side of the Metal Tiers turned to sand.
2076 BE: The Hrududu Jungle crossed the Groshan Sea and established a new jungle on Hearthland. The new jungle was known as Turashtegal.
2046 BE: Drolfo gave his people a gift. He created a new race of Merfolk that no longer feared the world above without water. These Merfolk were referred to as Landwalkers.
1988 BE: The Landers clear-cut the Fluren Peninsula.
