Book of Heroes: Timeline - 1. Chapter 1

Stories on World

The dates below are approximate and are usually based on the interpretation of data in the original manuscripts from which the translators worked. Few stories contain a reference to a date. Arcadian dates commonly are determined from the first spring equinox after the coronation of an Arcadian prince. The Elvish calendar is largely non-existent. Few stories contain information allowing them to be dated precisely.

“BP” means “Before Present”; “AP” means “After Present.” Because the coronation of Auric of Arcadia appeared in many of the earlier-translated stories, we used that date as the “zero date” for the stories; thus, AP means “after the coronation of Auric”; BP means “before the coronation of Auric.”

Most stories which begin on Earth and move to World are thought to take place in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. On the other hand, it is almost certain that there is more than one “Earth,” and that their different histories make dating uncertain.
