Year 0: One of the largest fragments of Xenodelphia to hit Nor'Ova, crashes into the Crysalis Sea in the then called Continent of Ascia. It is the first of such rocks to hold life. The Ascians name this mysterious, life bearing rock from the sky the Chalcedon, which means "mysterious rock". Those that come forth are the dwarves and some of the first xodians on Nor'Ova: Tyrius, Cera Mercleis, Marcus Clairstory, Cecila Mercleis, Trismegitus Mercleis, and Elmira.
 5 First Era: The Chalcedonian Crater fills in. The changes that the 'Chalcedonian Asteroid' brought to the continent causes most to change the name of the continent to Chalcedonia - land where the mysterious rock fell. The Ascians do not accept this change, insisting on calling it the Ascian Continent for the next 600 years.
 50 First Era: Many dwarves settle into the Midden Mountains and the Midden Shelf. While it was already claimed by a nation of gray elves, these dwarves are able to make a home for themselves there.
 120 First Era: The first spotting of the Yeti occurs in the Crystal Mountains in Chalcedonia; spotted by naturalist and explorer Yveni Oclure, an ascian elf. His well-written record of this spotting is discounted by many as mere imagination.
 385 First Era: Not all dwarves were happy to settle in someone elses kingdom. These dwarves searched for a land yet unsettled to call home. They find it in the Continent of Capere, where they create the Kingdom of Midengarde - a tongue-in-cheek reference to their brothers who had stayed behind in the Midden Mountains.
 400 First Era: The dwarves in Capere have their first run in with Orcs, who before now had lived undisturbed in the Pyre Desert with other orc races.
 420 First Era: The anthropoid races are identified in the deep forests of Talusia by the Yerk Elf explorer, Alron Naheist. He refers to each of them in simplified terms, giving birth to the races of Liontaur, Aquilian (yerkish for eagle man), Adolfite (yerkish for wolf man), and Turtalian. Gryphons wouldn't be discovered for another 50 years.
 560 First Era: Ormus Gailmore was born to Tyrius and Neela, a silver elf Tyrius had an afair with. At the time Tyrius's wife Cera was pregnant with Clara. When Cera found out about Tyrius's affair, she killed him. Clara would be born with her maiden name, Mercleis.
 580 First Era: Other fragments of Xenodelphia fell upon Nor'Ova, none as large as the Chalcedon Asteroid. Each held various races of lore which came forth from their slumber after impact. At this time now all of the Orbs of Zodo were on Nor'Ova, though they wouldn't be discovered until much later.
 640 First Era: Ormus, now a priest of Sol Anon and an archeologist, was sent by the church to investigate a new asteroid that fell in the Pyre Desert, one which held ruins of an odd structure on them. There he discovered the Divine Incantations, a book that was written by Zodo himself back when he had a body. Only Ormus didn't know this as he could not read the  language. Ormus was instructed to translate the book.
 650 First Era: Over the 10 years of translating the book, the words of Zodo found a weakness in Ormus's lack of faith, and began to corrupt him. When Ormus was finished translating the book, he felt that the book contained a hidden truth. He started the Church of the Holy Body to spread this new truth, becoming the first organized church of Zodo.
 655 First Era: To protect his church, Ormus created a group of knights. Hearing them called rubes - basically beginners and worthless, Ormus grew to like that term. He thought that such a term would make the enemy underestimate his knights, giving his knights the advantage. So he had some armor made and colored ruby red, and named his knights the Rube Knights. They were called the Rubes for short.
 660 First Era: Returning to the site where he found the Divine Incantations, Ormus discovered the Orb of Spirit. He used its power to add power to his sermons and make the church grow.
 680 First Era: Ormus was captured by templar knights of the Church of Mogen David, as were some of his followers. They were all executed for the crime of Zodo worship. The Church of the Holy Body goes into hiding, as does the Orb of Spirit.
 710 First Era: A plague wipes out 1/4th of those living in the continent of Vega. It was only stopped by the invention of antibiotics by alchemist Malone Newood.
 920 First Era: Electricity is invented by the inventor Eskar Norvist. The Age of Steam and Industry begins.

1015 First Era: Photographic proof of Yetis in the Crystal Mountains is captured.
 1560 First Era: The first telephone call is completed between two cities.
 1590 First Era: The first telephone call is completed between two continents, via cable line laid across the O'Lennon Ocean.
 1730 First Era: The first computer is invented. It could only do simple math and all daa was stored on punch cards.
 1810 First Era: Lector Clairstory is born.
 1880 First Era: The Great World War begins.
 1910 First Era: The Great World War ends by the detonation of the first atomic bomb, invented by Lector Clairstory.

 1961 First Era: The first artificial intelligence, free thinking, and free learning computer is created. It is called the Mind.

 1970 First Era: The Confederacy of Ascia successfully sends a man into space.
 1972 First Era: The Republic of Vega finally succeeded in sending a man into space. They try to land on the moon, but watch in horror as the mercury rich atmosphere of the moon eats through the rocket and kills the spacemen.
 1983 First Era: The Republic of Vega, Confederacy of Ascia, United Kingdom of Talusia, and several other nations ban together to work on the first space station. Numerous issues prevent the space station from ever being fully completed, but parts of it are made usable by 1990 of the First Era.
 1996 of the First Era: A major computer virus infects the Mind IV, which was responsible for regulating the world's economies and stock markets. This causes the system to produce odd values often too high or too low before crashing and sending the world into a terrible global depression.
