The Timeline of the Quelmar Realm can be broken down into five distinct eras, which you can expand below.

Prehistory: The Unrecorded WorldEdit

Very little is known about the history of Quelmar before humans arrived in year 0 as there was no sense of time. The races of Quelmar would adapt to the invention of "time" by humans, but otherwise were uncivilized enough that keeping track of time, at least in the record keeping sense, was meaningless. However, it is known that long before humans arrived, there were two great wars. The Territory Wars and the Plane Wars. Another event, much less documented, was the Pixie Nixings, which is rumored to have been the reason why Quelmar has magic at all. This era of Quelmar may have lasted a hundred years, or may have lasted several million. Very little is left from the prehistoric times of Quelmar, but when something from prehistory emerges, you can be certain it is very powerful, and very alien.

Posthistory: After the End of the Realm Edit

After the end of the Realm, the only stories that lived on were those of the survivors who escaped to adjacent planes of existence, or who found excitement in their afterlives in their God's domain. Such stories are considered to have happened in an immeasurable timeline that is simply known as PostHistory.

Year Event
??? Anema E. Core turns his life into a biblical tome known as "The Legends of Sick of this Shit" and disperses it to another universe, his own tragically destroyed.

A Footnote About Timelines Edit

As there are multiple Quelmar in existence (As seen via the Editionals and the Tovag Baragu, as well as Time Paradoxes and Temporal Fissures), there is no one timeline that can be applied to the world. The ever changing nature of players cause time to constantly be written and rewritten. In fact, some world-ending events in Quelmar may cause the ending of (one) Quelmar prematurely. Despite these complications, pictured above is the most common representation of the Eras of Quelmar.
