In my campaign I have long wanted a view of Gloranthan history from a perspective of an ordinary people who might only think about just a few years back, in my father’s day, when my grandfather was young, when my great-grandfather was initiated.
At the same I wanted to see what was happening at other regions at the time. Created the database for the calendar information and wanted to share a generational perspective for the Gloranthan history.
Now your Sartarite NPC or your character can say that the Moon worshippers finally got us when my father was young. My grandfather died with the last true king of Sartar – Salinarg. My grandfather had seen the opening of the seas and the Sun Worshippers receiving their land and starting to construct their temple.
Currently my campaign has some seafaring parts so I wanted to know when closing was in effect overall and in particular areas.
Almost all the dates and history information are compiled from the Guide, Kingdom of Sartar and the new Pavis book.
The generation is defined to be 25 years which might be a bit high for barbarian cultures but would work for civilized. The base year in the years ago is 1625. The table contains event per year for all areas, how many generations ago it happened, how many years ago it happened and whether closing was in effect at the time.

Updated with Elder Wilds dates
Updated with Wyrms Footnotes 15 – Dragon Pass dates
Updated with the Army Activity by Homeland chart from WF15. All raids and invasions noted by area.
There was momentary hiccup with the format – not all lines were visible. Corrected
This is terrific, HKokko! I have been piecing together a timeline for my own use in a River of Cradles game I am running. Thanks.
Thanks. If you notice something missing and can point me to semiofficial source for the info – I might add it… This goes back only a few generations by purpose at this time but tries to be complete
This is a very useful resource, many thanks. One query: In Balazar / Elder Wilds Dated 1580 shows the rebuilding of Dykene by Skilfil Heartpiercer, but according to Griffin mountain the King is 40 in the year 1612 so is the 1580 entry for his father or grandfather sharing the same name presumably?
Hmm. Interesting. Might be a mistake in my part. Found it “It remained in ruin until 1580, when rebuilding began under the direction of the great-grandfather to Skilfil Heartpiercer, the current ruler.” GtG
