RECENT EVENTS! (There are 12 months a year each named after one of the Gods, but for the following purposes, I shall use real world analogues, since they are just overlain flavour.)
December 5th 499 AU (After Unification of Istorius. Local timeline, but most useful one all things considered. Rakimites will call it 270 Shiradi, that being the ruling party of the time. Tablelanders don’t bother to keep dates. Too busy stabbing. For Ver Noktans it is the 284th year of Erathis. All further dates will just use the Istorian timeline.): Orange Island is attacked by a group of pirates, praising the King that Crawls, Torog. In the resulting devestation, a group of adventurers escapes with a priceless spyglass capable of revealing the locations of a series of divine artifacts. Gaston is elevated to the rank of governor, after the Master of the Port town disappears in the chaos.

December 31st 499/January 1st 500 AU: A Ver’Noktan Hobgoblin senator is murdered at the New Year’s Party in Solis, Istorius. Already strained relationships between the two states grow tauter, and rumour begins to spread that the Prince has taken a Half-Elf consort.

January 3rd 500 AU: Benito CXVI is named, his coronation taking place a week later, after his father’s body finally succumbs to the consumption.

January 10th 500 AU: A town in Rakim goes missing into a sinkhole. Unknown causes as of yet, though rumours abound of dragons on the coast.

January 11th 500 AU: A town in Istorius suffers from a similar fate, but the team dispatched to deal with the issue, including the new Orc ambassador Gurren Longfang, and the Princess Maria deal with the issue soundly, ascribing the problem to a far realm incursion. Whispers are heard of a cult to the Guide Star Caiphon in the area following the events.

January 15th 500 AU: The Lhok’Gar of the Thousand Isles perishes, and Vol Romogal is razed and expelled of bandits.

January 24th 500 AU: After the Lhok’Garin tournament, a group of adventurers crowns a Genasi known only as Mr B as the new Lhok’Gar. There is rumour of a cult practising animal sacrifice to keep the Guide Star in its place during long voyages in the isles shortly afterwards.

February 23rd 500 AU: King Benito XCVI proposes to his Half Elf Consort, revealed to the nation as ‘Izabella’. It is rumoured her father may be of a notorious criminal family, and there is word as to whether his daughter’s hand is some form of blackmail to the young King. The people are… disgruntled.

March 1st 500 AU: A group of adventurers help the rebuilding of Visenya, a great city of the Tablelands, by releasing a divine spark. It finds a home in Kurz, the Orc Philosopher. In light of this, he locks himself into the light-tower of Visenya, to meditate on how to responsibly take on this power. He leaves one of his students, the Thri-Kreen Alaya, to take his place as head of the Academy.

400 BU: The Elven races, with the help of the Gnomes and WIlden, defeat the Whisper and bind her people, the Changelings, to form. The few that escape run to the Tablelands. Many are half-affected. Those that were bound transformed give birth to the terrifyingly bestial Shifters. As a last retort, Whisper curses the Elves, their children being born the Drow, the children marked by her. In the new Caste Society of the Empire of Rakim, the Dark Elves are relegated to Untouchable status.

146 BU: When Wood Elf riots destroy half of the city, the oligarchy of Rakim decides a more decisive way to lead the council is needed. The resulting disagreements form the First Elven Civil War.

144 BU: Kilayereth Courre is crowned the First Emperor of Rakim. He retains one member of each of the Eladrin tribes as his advisors, with an empty seat for his missing Brothers of Ollanius, the Oralleni, and gains the ability to cast his vote, securing his power.

0 AU: The Shifter King is defeated, and the Tablelands shattered, as they come upon the force of the newly united Istorius. As individual city states, they would have fallen, but under the guidance of the Enturino family, the country survives. The Shifter King, lecherous and bachelor, leaves children, prophets, advisors and generals, all of whom claim some small fraction of territory as their own, and the land is plunged into the Age of Chaos.

124 AU: With the death of Kilayereth Courre, the Second Elven Civil War begins. It ends within 2 months, decided by single combat. Dayereth Tulani is appointed leader.

201 AU: The Thousand Isles reappear, its people altered, calling themselves ‘Genasi’

224 AU: With the death of Dayereth Tulani, the Third Elven Civil War begins.

229 AU: The Third Elven Civil War ends. The Shiradi are appointed the high Justiciars of Rakim, thanks to the mercantile aid of the Turathi and Shiere. The Tulani are relegated to the lowest position of the High Council.

275 AU: The Monarch of Istorius Sylvester I is assassinated by his own hired swords. The resulting fallout produces the Benitolini Guard, and the army’s reliance on mercenary forces decreases. The founding of the Enturino Military Academy facilitates this.

288 AU: The colony of Orange Island is founded by intrepid Tiefling Explorer Silus Aloicius.

294 AU: Vissbruck is refound by Silus Aloicius. He begins the tourney games in the abandoned city. The toll on the planar fabric and the discovery of feral elves and horrifying mutants brings the games to a short end 2 years later.

October 4th 300 AU: The first sighting of a Thri Kreen Hive in the Tablelands. Their origin is unknown.

July 27th 490 AU: Kurz pens ‘On the Issues of Society.’ The book takes the world by storm, claiming that a society without a ruling body, and formed purely by co-operation with eachother and appreciation of others worth to society as cogs in the machine was not only achievable and feasible, but the fairest way to run a country. Burnings took place across the civilised world.

September 14th 492 AU: Thri-kreen dissidents, citing ‘On the Issues of Society’ as their inspiration, concoct a coup in the Thri-Kreen Empire’s capital city of Visenya. This brings a halt to the rapid advance of the hives, and many are pushed out of their territory as they try to adjust to a society without any true hierarchy.

August 16th 493 AU: Kurz, after demands from the Thri Kreen that he should be released from his house arrest, has his guard intensified, the dread Colonel Thrix being assigned to protect his person. Within a week the Colonel is found dead and Kurz escaped, a hoard of Mashed Potato and the smell of caramelised Orc Flesh being the only evidence of escape.

September 3rd 493 AU: The Kurz Miao is founded. He takes the leaders of the Thri Kreen revolution under his wing, in the hopes of educating them. His views spread quickly across the Tablelands, though many are too cynical to listen. The Thri Kreen manage to hold their territory through a number of bizarre consequences, without the race needing to come into direct conflict. Rumours of Kurz being a Divine Messenger of the Aspect of Civilisation, Erathis, abound.

November 15th 494 AU: Ver Nokta publishes a list of plausible candidates to send to Istorius as a new diplomat. Colonel Thrix is among those listed, despite being confirmed dead.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
