Timeline, Original

This is the one the PCs are native to. My notes were a hot mess and spread to the four winds, and some of the sheets lacked dates, and often lacked the year, so sorting this all out nice and neat will be a challenge.

This timeline includes the whole of all Xynndarra PC happenings when it was hiding out like a hair in a biscuit on Toril, the meatgrinder that was the early phases of the “good” Earth groups (I commonly write GG to refer to them), as well as the deadly shenanigans of the “evil” group (I commonly write EG to refer to them). Included the Godswar and the plague. C, I is working to timelock it.

Update: C, I has it timelocked up to 597. They are almost certain. The gods are unable to be on Earth 597-797.

(“good” Earth group)

08-15-798: In Cedarpoint, the group splits up — Valrin and Kinn stay to battle orcs, Larrian and William leave to bring Quel’Lothra to the far north.
08-18-798: Cedarpoint falls to the orcs.
08-20-798: They found the obelisk following Kraz’ lead, kill the orc priest and two chiefs. Kraz dies. Daryv leaves to talk to Giger.
08-22-798: Giger dispelled the obelisk by lowering resistance x3, dispel magic, and a rod of cancellation). Group promises to do a favor in return for Giger one day.
08-23-798: Giger was given the black opal w/ the red slit “eye” look. 8,500 gp. Debt cancelled, and he further identified their items for them. The half-orc priest of X’D, his black flock, ogres, and giants took out Will and Larrian and Quel, the latter two being captured, then sent the swarm after Giger. Giger teleported to Brellcove and they rathole in The Bent Shoe. They fought the swarm off, then left to Orides.
08-24-798: Outside Goldfork they were attacked in full force. Sir Darinius (Darikar’s father) died in the fight. They rescued Larrian and Quel’Lothra. Giger goes back home, they continue for Orides.

11-02-798: Met Urstag, Sonja, and their children.
12-07-798: Killed the bounty hunters that were after Mack.


(Mostly Prism’s solo stuff after she was left behind in Lenrow, and then the series of sessions that were just Allison and Ben, in the little EG subcampaign to try to bring them up to speed)

-While waiting in the room after the meeting with Queen Sharcella, Princess Avyrla walked in, fresh in from travels.
- Sir Kaison Dannril sacked the little orc fort in Chasewood, took a few orc prisoners. He learned from them that the EG betrayed Rylock and were responsible for his death, a story Kaison readily believed as there was no good explanation of the small band of orcs downing his brother otherwise. Through Kaison and Amroth, Sharcella is now very aware of the EG. A bounty is posted.

12-13-798: Phaerus foiled Amroth’s plans with Prism, so Amroth fled the area, absconding with all of Prism’s gear. Phaerus helped Prism get re-equipped a bit, then they prepare for travel.
12-14-798: Random thug corners Prism in an alley with a mind to violate her. They fight, Prism loses, but Zhazran saves her in the nick of time, killing the would-be rapist. Prism met Lotus. Zhazran charmed Prism, learned a lot about her past — Ravenwing, Phaerus — and learned all about the Lenrow stuff. Learned about Manny, Sorvus & Kilverton. P told Z how “awesome” Sorvus’ magic was. Z learned that Sorvus has The Purifier and was headed to Arkas. P told Z about her backstory stuff as well.

(I failed at keeping track of specific days through the next session, but it all happened rather rapidly).

-They killed Amroth north of Xoll b/w Sutholla & Wylnn, Prism got back all her stuff.
-Prism met Xyv, who was responsible for arranging for her teleportation that let them catch up to Amroth. Prism agrees to work for Xyv to repay the debt.
-They ran into Ravenwing in Jussane. Spellfire was exchanged, but Z and P escaped.
-Lotus died on the road to Arkas to find Sorvus. P narrowly escaped. Then she gets snowed in at Arkas. P befriends Justin Felps. Sorvus, the new Lord of Arkas, offered Prism to work for him, hoping to give her the chance to eschew her roguely ways.
-Prism left w/ Adam for Iveria; she gave Justin a silver ring.
-Adam and Prism pulled off their big caper. They become lovers. Adam begins with his big dreams of family and starts his subtle efforts of trying to reform Prism.
-Xyv learned from Adam a bunch of misc. stuff about him.
-Prism left with Adam to Vandorn.

05-04-799: Prism was noticed by Gem picking pockets outside of The Black Flame. Xyv reprimanded her, particularly in light of Zhazran specifically warning her against non-sanctioned illegal activities in Orides. Dorian lost his priesthood.
05-12-799: Zhazran & co. finished off Verris & co. Dorrian is up to owing Xyv 1,000 gp and Talen 50gp.
05-17-799: EG reunion, and they leave for Xoll.
06-07-799: Weirdwood vision. [note: I think this was something to do with the Triad stuff].

06-14-799: Arrive in Xoll.
06-16-799: Commit to helping Lassiter, fleeing from undead, his youngest brother had died. Talon was turned into a toad. Some frogger assery occurred.

(EG)

01-03-799: Lord Drannis Whiteward assassinated.
01-07-799: EG with Xyv and his allies swept through Orides on the warpath. The butchered the drug slingers, Captain Voz, and roughly 15-20 guards. Kidnapped Glendar a second time. Ben’s Jor died in the battle. Xyv nearly died. Jass/Xyv flat out bought Drannis Whiteward’s little army out from under him, hence no retribution from them.
02-13-799: Ash was (sorta) privy to Snakes, K’Yerran, and Gem ambushing Morka and Mindar. Snakes killed Mindar, and they gave Morka over to Xyv. Ash kept what he saw from the others in the group.
- EG helped Ollith Beard kill the stirges and trolls. Then they tracked down Crovax and killed him. His crony got away w/ all the cool loot, but they did get the gem they were hunting.
Velimé (going by Thadeus) tracked down the group, hired them to replace Kaliah, sent them after the Emerald in the hands of the Branstone family.
-Tam will keep an eye out for the EG, wanting revenge.

03-07-799: Velimé & EG popped into Castle Vandorn courtyard. EG rained hell down on the courtyard. They killed about 100 soldiers, two knights, and a watchcaptain. Meanwhile, Velimé killed the advising council, several castle guards, and raided Shaldor’s treasury, thus securing him the Diamond.

Varunus particularly.

04-12-799: EG graverobs the tomb of Jorkav Moonsmith — he curses them, gives Sinderkee a good ghostly strangling. Later, J’Chyoora’Ukwa “blessed” Lezarous w/ his presence — chomped his right eye into oblivion and placed a Symbol of Pain on Lezarous for 100 turns. The Chaos Hound gave Lezarous a year to redeem himself.
04-17-799: EG meets Lon’Griva. Later, Annaverra and Zaveroth, having finally tracked the EG down, teleport in and rain hell. Lezarous and Talon die to the fireball doom, Lon’Griva joins the fray and helps turn the tide. Annaverra and Zaveroth perish. Talon’s demise starts him down the path to becoming a Chaos Knight.
04-19-799: Sinderkee & Varunus captured by Sheriathé & co. Shariethé questioned Sinderkee, learned a lot about her and a little about the surface world, and secured them as help in their cause. Later, Lon’Griva accidentally wishes Lezarous and Talon back from the grave.
04-20-799: Went back to the Deepmoon elves. Shariathé bought the ring of wishes from Lon’Griva (still oblivious of its true power) for a wad of gems. Shariathé wishes for immunity to all magic other than her own. A small powerup.

11/20/799: Dawn is born on Lunacy. Aura by that time is in possession of the Plate of the Sun and the Amulet of the Sun. Reece ends up with the amulet.

He lets her feast on him, and they have an epic fuck. They meet Daine, Kat disappears. Jourandis becomes vampire.

It is right after this that the Stone ripped the PCs off on the huge time traveling series of sessions.


(EG) (pretty sure this is 800)

02/11: Session start.
02/12: Full moon. (I’d be curious to know if this lines up with the 11/4/797 full moon I provided. I bet it doesn’t. : / )
02/14: Group splits.
02/22: With a heavy heart, Xyv tells Erridon to off Lezarous.

-It’s sometime after this that Xyv left Orides and left Zhazran in charge, and Zhazran set about planning the murder of not just Lezarous, but the would-be Triad as well.

02/29: Talon, Sinderkee, Lez, Varunus killed by Zhazran, Shayleigh (Prism), and Erridon.
03/02: Erridon and Shayleigh/Prism hook up. Zhazran is aware of it, as he’s been having them spied on.
03/03: Zhazran reads Prism’s unfinished letter to Xyv. A drunken Zhazran takes a heavy dose of Black Lotus, and, already one straw away from snapping, the potent drug helps push Zhazran over the edge. Snap. He kills Erridon, the two teenagers he’d been fucking, and captures Prism. Dianizia saves her, warns of the impending danger via Xu’Dann. She helps Prism take on her new disguise and wards her against the incoming chaos.
03/06: Dianizia kills Dzarkhan. She wins D&D?


Anyway, it was in the 3rd month of year 800 that was the end of all PC happenings on the original timeline. Throughout the long craziness via the Stone that followed, they were in and out of three timelines, spent some time on 813, some time on 1120 on Earth. The future they saw seemed like Feyzura had won the Godswar and seemed to have a heavy hand in things.

Bottom line is most of that bullshit was Dianizia’s fault. She’s quick to logically argue that everything is her father’s fault.
