3rd century: founding of San Dorado (as Shan Dzovar) by Akkan envoys.

9th century: Great Calamitous Age. A meteor shower pelts the planet, setting off a massive change of climate that disrupts the entire world.

ca. 11th century: conquests of the Claret Empress.

1116: Fahrettin Khayr Vaejah begins his circumnavigation of the world.

1265: War of the Last Kings, leading to the final unification of Caighseal under the White and Silver of House Canhastyr.

15th Century Lesser Calamitous Age. Daedalean Emperor takes control of the Sarakan Peninsula.

1527: Founding of the Community of the Companies of San Dorado, dissolution of the Great Council.

1674 A great storm, Tyche's Clarion, hits northern Astrafica and causes massive destruction in its wake.

1768: Great Blaze of Shevirat, San Dorado.

1839, 1842 and 1847: Revolutionary uprisings on the Sarakan Peninsula.

1855: Formation of the League of Partisans.

1880: Fourth Congress of the League of Partisans. The Kagarian Circle, also known as the Black Internationale, displaces the Sarakan Circle as leaders of the clandestine movement.

1890: Lash of the Dead Khan, a series of border skirmishes exposes the strategic weakness of the Daedalean Empire.

1895 Revolutions of 1895, a wave of popular discontent which began in the harbours of Niksic and immediately spread to most of Transkagaria and parts of Astrafica.

1899 - 1906 The Mad War, Tyr Caelhyr invades the Sarakan Peninsula on a flimsy pretext. The War House expected to fight a brief colonial skirmish and concessions from the other great powers, but the conflict rapidly spins into a total war between the Daedalean Emperor, the Khan of Kagaria and the High Potentate.

1908: Majorly weakened the Daedalean Empire can no longer maintain control of its overseas territories. Daedalon Hyperpontis is dissolved and the Sarakan League is created, a disparate federation of provisional states awkwardly drawn across historic, religious and ethnic boundaries.

1910: Herceowic is the first nation fully under communist control.

1941: Night of Khalmyradov - a coup d'etat in which the Zagori marshal Sarhy Khalmyradov seizes power in the Sarakan League. He is backed by the Khan of Kagaria.

The Khan of Kagaria backs Khalmyradov's 11-year old son Hakan as his successor. In response, several states in the League rise up in revolt - the First Rising.

1949: After his proxies in Zagor and elsewhere are repeatedly defeated, an increasingly unstable Khan sends his own army to pacify the peninsula. This is one of the triggers for the Sanctuary Wars.

1961: the Final Act of the Congress of Svarsvik ends the Great Wars and determines the territories of the states on the Sarakan Peninsula. Majority Sjensk areas are particularly hard hit, with the Sjens losing more than 70% of their territory to the Lordship of Skozan, a newly established Canhastyri protectorate. The end of the war immediately spawns a number of low-level insurgencies.

17 on 18 January 1966 The Iramka Confederation self-destructs in an apocalyptic holocaust of atomic fury. In a span of midnight hours the cities of Iram vanished under mushroom clouds.

1970: in Novi Jela and elsewhere worker ands student protests against the occupation and disenfranchisement have been building for two years. In the biggest demonstration yet, protestors clash with security forces of the White Wand. The troops open fire. Twenty-four people die. This bloody event sparks the Second Rising.

1971-1973: after a brief but violent struggle for control and with intervention from Kagaria looming on the horizon the Canhastyri High Potentate decides the cost of hanging onto its rebellions extractive colony is too great. She pulls back her forces but hands power to the Skozan Free State, a weak and unstable territory that many ethnic Sjens consider nothing but a Canhastyri puppet.

1973 - 1977: Sjenskan civil war, pitting ethnicities, religions and ideologies against each other. Atrocities are commited on all sides. Ultimately the ethnic Sjens faction lead by Srdjan Karic wins the war.

1975: Short Bluffs insurrection in San Dorado, the largest Sprawl revolt in recent memory.

1975 - 1978: Vlasenican civil war, a spill-over from the war in Sjenska triggered by the assassination of president-for-life Aleksandar Radojevic.

Ashbriar Wrack (E. canens, Plunged Man's Pulse, huijin jan, Cold Tangle, Shah Dara's Fangs, Kadab Yamik) is a species of murderous multicellular algae native to the south-western coasts of Ninkhursag and the floating islands of the Cataract Sea.

Black Flowers (fleurs de guerre, cadaver poppies, Papaver Apsinthos, sable souls, wormweed, Azhar-Sūd) is a type of poisonous flowering plant. Infamous for their dangerous inklike petals and torpor-inducing odour, Black Flowers were first recorded to appear in the aftermath of the Battle of Kalyvia-Gol in 1813.

Direcrows (C. Dirus) are highly intelligent flock hunters and tool users native to the Palmaran peninsula. Significant numbers of them have migrated to San Dorado, where great murders of them can be seen wheeling around the Downtown skyscrapers.

Hydropteres Known as locally Bashmu, Hydropteres are weakly sapient but eminently (if inhumanly) intelligent sea-dwelling creatures from the south of the Caldera Sea. They are extremely hostile to humans to the point where many local peoples consider themselves to have been at war with these creatures since times immemorial.

Nazhindrism The Nazhindri faith the faith of Akka. It is an ancient religious system of esoteric teachings that includes a wide corpus of texts, practices, theological positions and organizations. Nazhindri cosmology principally concerns itself with three unchanging, eternal, and mysterious godheads and their relationships with a multitude of lesser empyrean beings and the mortal and finite universe.
