Introduction

The tables below provide a timeline of Dragon Pass for the period commonly called the Third Age. Events large and small are included, both to allow use of the timeline as a source of campaign background, and also to allow for local color within a game or campaign. Please note that only years have been provided for events, even when more specific dating may be possible. This was done to ensure consistency among these events; readers are encouraged to refer to the original sources for more information.

This is as comprehensive a list of dates as I have been able to create from published sources, but additions, corrections, and alternate interpretations are welcomed. Although no unpublished material has been used to compile this timeline, some of the sources may be unfamiliar to readers; at afuture date, a document will be available to provide a brief explanation of a specific source. Until that time, readers interested in further information should consult the comprehensive Meints Index to Glorantha.

This timeline focuses on Dragon Pass in the Third Age, but events in neighboring lands or from the end of the Second Age have been included in many cases, where I felt that they had an important impact on the land or peoples of Dragon Pass. All such decisions to include or not include such events are my own, and should not be considered to reflect the beliefs or opinions of Greg Stafford, Issaries, Inc., Chaosium, Inc., or any other person.

Finally, no “unofficial” sources have been used to compile this timeline, even when such are generally or specifically considered to be Accepted. This was done to ensure consistency and accuracy of the contents. Again, this decision is solely mine, and should not be considered to reflect the opinions of anyone else.
