Timeline of the Obscure Cities
In the timeline we try to organize all events and topics by relevant years.
There are two set of time lines used on Altaplana. The Obscure time and the lighted time. The lighted time is calculated A.D. (Anno Domini) like the Julian calendar 1). You can find the Timeline of the Lighted World at a separate page.
The timeline of the Obscure Cities is calculated as After the Tower 2), meaning the number of Obscure years after the supposed starting date of The Tower's construction.
