Beyond 3000 BC
- Very little has been documented or traced to the period before the 3rd millennium BC. It is suggested that multiple indigenous tribes inhabited the plains and tundra areas of Astrinea while they were warmer than today during the development of agriculture and metallurgy, marking the earliest known civilization on the continent.

3rd Millennium BC

c. 3000 - 2500 BC
- The beginning of the Bronze Age follows numerous advances in agriculture, urbanization, and communication. It is believed that the tribes of Astrinea, who would come to be known as the ancestors of the Talos today, founded the earliest known settlements on the continent. It is suggested that many of these settlements were permanent at the time, though continental cooling over thousands of years has since justified annual migrations.

- The first evidence of gold being used (in the Middle East) was from this time period.

- A major migration of Central Saharans into West Africa occurs around this time, possibly due to aridization of the continent's once hospitable north over the last few hundred years.

- The Giza Necropolis is constructed in Egypt and becomes known as the greatest monument site in the known world.

c. 2500 - 2000 BC
- The Planskit Conquest somewhere around this time results in the eradication of several Astrinean tribes and settlements and the rise to prominence of the pre-Talos civilization. Much tribal heritage is destroyed in the conquest, but it remains the most prevalent, if not earliest, literally-documented change in the tribal structure in history.

- Stonehenge is erected in Albion.

c. 2000 BC
- Xia Dynasty, first Chinese dynasty and government system is established.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
2nd Millennium BC

c. 1600 BC
- The late Bronze Age gives rise to wheeled transportation and new methods of warfare, and the Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations crumble at the hands of Indo-European invaders.

c. 1500 - 1100 BC
- The Bronze Age civilization at its final period of time displays all its characteristic social traits: low level of urbanization, small cities centered around temples or royal palaces, strict separation of classes between an illiterate mass of peasants and craftsmen and a powerful military elite, knowledge of writing and education reserved to a tiny minority of scribes, and pronounced aristocratic life. Many of these conditions are prevalent throughout the known world, though Astrinea continues to lag behind diplomatically, socially, and economically due to its general seclusion from surrounding civilizations.

c. 1100 - 1000 BC
- New waves of barbarians, this time riding on horseback, wholly destroy the Bronze Age world, and are to be followed by waves of social changes that marked the beginning of different times. Also contributing to the changes were the Sea Peoples, ship-faring raiders of the Mediterranean.

- Astrinea begins to experience the trade and hardships brought by the more developed peoples of Caribbean and South-American origin.

c. 1000 BC
- The earliest East Asian influence arrives at Astrinea around this time, primarily under the Chinese Zhou Dynasty. It is not entirely known how these people arrived at the continent, but an Asian presence is established quickly and forcefully along the continent's Eastern highlands. It is suggested that Chinese settlers arrived from the north, but migrated to Astrinea's more fertile regions to avoid the continent's arid crown.

- The Iron Age hits the known world, and advances in metallurgy supplement great development in literature and the arts.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
2nd Millennium AD

c. 1000 AD
- Vikings, led by Leif Ericson, establish small settlements in and around Vinland in North America. Norse settlement is known to exist in the western tundra of Astrinea, and relations between indigenous tribes and imperialists is exceedingly low.

c. 1010 - 1020 AD
- A Chinese scholar compiles a massive work of cartography in 1,566 chapters, including the mapped topography of each provincial region in China down to the minute level of small towns and villages. Additionally, influential encyclopedias such as the Book of Optics, Book of Healing, and the Canon of Medicine are written by Persian-Muslim scientists and scholars, thus transcending the established precedents of documented knowledge in the known world.

1054 AD
- Arab, Chinese, and Japanese astronomers observe a new, dominant star in the sky and document what is presently suggested to have been a supernova.

1061 - 1064 AD
- Norsemen in the Western Astrinea, present-day Vestarne, eradicate many lowland Talos tribes, sparking conquest between indigenous peoples and imperials. Iestronaen allies of the prominent Talos civilization assist in repelling the advance of Westerners.

c. 1100 AD
- Astrinea is no longer accessible to the outside world for reasons unknown at the time. Ships sail without ever reaching their destination, and many are lost as their crews and instruments succumb to this unprecedented phenomenon. These occurrences are not truly realized until Iestraen trade vessels encounter ghost fleets of their own origin, washing up in the east with prevailing winds.

1107 AD
- Iestrona asserts its complete independence from East Asia, though suffers severe economic decline due to a sudden halt in all international trade several years previous. Ogarad is defined as a client-state of Iestrona at this time, though traditions in both civilizations at the time are very different due in no small part heavy Muslim influence in the north.

1112 AD
- The first High Sovereign King of Iestrona takes the throne over the Iestranaen-Ogari empire, resulting in the subjugation of many surrounding Talos tribes by the new monarchy, which extends over only half of the Astrinaen continent thus far.

1115 - 1161 AD
- The King's rule sees many changes to Iestronaen constitution, and the sovereign nation expands to encompass the majority of fertile land in Astrinea during this period of restoration. Indigenous tribes are assimilated or wiped out in the process, though some larger establishments are left to their independence under treaty. There is very little evidence of Viking expansion in the western highlands over this time, suggesting that Norse influence fell into significant decline with the severance of Astrinea from the known world. The lowlands have retained their European influence, but are periodically sacked by revolting tribes.

1161 AD
- The first High Sovereign King of Iestrona dies and is succeeded by his son. A day of memorial is to become known as a traditional holiday, and is held sacrosanct by the Iestronaen people.

c. 1200 AD
- A small Viking civilization is formed in the rocky mountain ranges of southwestern Astrinea, having been driven from the continent's lowlands by Talos tribes.

- Windmills and other forms of mechanized agriculture are born in the northeast, and are used primarily by the people of Ogarad until adopted by Iestrona.

- The earliest known gunpowder rockets are used in combat by Iestrona against Norse war bands.

1209 AD
- The Kingdom of Iestrona asserts itself as the Iestraen Monarchy. The term "Iestra" is to see use as an overall term for the Iestronaen civilization and its people, with the demonym "Iestraen."

1217 - 1218 AD
- Iestra conquers surviving Viking civilization in the west at the Battle of Hagulir. Many Talos settlements are forcefully assimilated by returning armies over the next year, causing tension between allies under treaty.

1220 - 1223 AD
- Iestra breaks treaty with tribes in the north and occupies a significant portion of Ogarad and Astrinean plains. The Ogari people have since lost independence, and are also assimilated by the Iestraen Monarchy during this period. For the first time in history all of Astrinea is recognized as Iestraen sovereign territory, and the empire enters its golden age.

- The Column becomes visible for the first time, and shall remain a prominent figure in the eastern sky for hundreds of years as the Iestraen people thrive as a single sovereign nation. Present-day historians believe the manifestation of the Column for the time of Iestra's ascension to be no coincidence.

c. 1220 - 1500 AD
- Iestra's golden age brings about many changes to technology, philosophy, society, literature, and the arts. The Iestraen people become a devout civilization, devoted to the polytheist state religion of the era, which remains strong to this day.

- The thingoei is adopted as the state currency and is minted from gold bullion and Orahi crystal, replacing over a dozen lesser currencies previously used in different Iestraen territories.

- Iestrona, Ogarad, and Western Astrinea are defined as the three prominent continental territories under the sovereign regime.

- The Talos have become recognized as an autonomous civilization and numerous treaties are enacted to preserve the heritage of the people, though heavy restrictions exist on the establishment of tribal settlements. The majority of surviving tribal cities and villages were conquered by Iestra during the first and second kings and remain under sovereign authority. It is for this reason, coupled with gradually cooling temperatures, that the Talos have adopted a highly nomadic way of life, which they maintain to this day.

- Extreme elemental and psychological phenomena are discovered for the first time, and Iestraen scholars begin to study the effects and capabilities of mystical arts. It would be many decades after the golden age that elementalism and summoning are harnessed and used effectively for any reason.

- The Ogarad desert has undergone extensive mineral excavation for Orahi crystals, which serve a unique purpose in the mystical arts.

c. 1500 AD
- Astrinea becomes accessible to the outside world for the first time in nearly three hundred years, as demonstrated by waves of Spanish and English settlers bound for the West Indies. The empire's confrontation with foreign imperialists marks the end of the Iestraen golden age, and sets in motion a century of corruption and revolt by the domestic people.

- Western Astrinea adopts the traditional name "Vestarne," meaning "secluded civilization."

- The Column is no longer visible to Astrinea, and is shrouded in turbulent winds. Climate over the continent becomes noticeably more overcast and wet, as it will for the next half-century.

c. 1510 AD
- European settlers express interest in Astrinea, which is now charted on exploration maps as being located in the Atlantic Ocean, east of the Caribbean. This does not coincide with East Asian and Indonesian discoveries over a millennium ago, but does explain five hundred year old Norse presence.

c. 1511 - 1522 AD
- Olaf Rateskej I begins to stage a campaign to end Iestraen oppression of the West. He spends a decade rallying support through secretive means.

1519 - 1522 AD
- The Portuguese fleet lead by Ferdinand Magellan is the first in history to completely circumnavigate the world.

1522 - 1530 AD
- The Great Civil War ensues on Astrinea, which would come to be known by Rateskejard historians as the State War of Independence. This event was the greatest turning point in Iestraen history, and marked the rise of the Rateskejard State in Rateskej's honour, who was killed in battle to ensure victory and freedom for his people.

- Elementalism and summoning are employed for the first time on the battlefield by the forces of Iestrona, and prove to be of unprecedented strategic value. The Iestraen Monarchy are quick to adopt mystical arts into their culture and religion.

1530 AD
- The Rateskejard State declares its independence from Iestraen sovereignty, and embraces trade with English, Spanish, and Portuguese settlers bound to and from the West Indies.

1531 AD
- The insurrection of Ogarad occurs, dividing the Iestraen people further. The Psion Assembly is born from the crippled Iestraen empire, and its people rebuke the use of the natural elements in a physical, forceful manner. Instead, Ogarad begins to adopt the psychological aspects of Astrinea's mystical phenomena.

1532 AD
- The Monarchy appoints a new leader and declares itself the Iestra Foundation. It is to spend the next few decades recovering from its loss and rebuilding its political, economic, and cultural strength in the shadow of the State-Assembly alliance. The campaign for independence has ended but tensions remain high between Astrinean civilizations.

c. 1530 - 1540 AD
- Trade between the Rateskejard State and European imperialists brings formidable new technological and educational advancements to Astrinea, which is still labeled on most navigational charts as existing outside of the Caribbean.

- The Privateer Alliance becomes an officially-recognized entity in the Rateskejard State.

1547 AD
The Column manifests itself once more, and Astrinea experiences a warmer, brighter climate again.

1548 AD
- The Ming Dynasty government of China issues a decree banning all foreign trade and closes down all seaports along the coast; these Hai jin laws came during the Wokou wars with Japanese pirates.

- Francis Drake circumnavigates the world.

1581 - 1582 AD
- The coastline of Half Isle is charted fully by Iestraen cartographers, who proceed to map the Solara Ring archipelago to the south of Astrinea.

1585 - 1604 AD
- The Anglo-Spanish War is fought on both sides of the Atlantic, resulting in Astrinea serving as a major stopover for fleets of both belligerents during this period. The Rateskejard economy is bolstered as wartime profiteering ensues while the Iestra Foundation uses the decade of relative autonomy to build back its independence. A significant minority of Iestraen population is of imperial origin, though many nationalists seek to restore Iestraen heritage to Iestrona, and continue to despise European influence.

1592 - 1598 AD
- Korea, with the help of Ming Dynasty China, repels two Japanese invasions.

1599 - 1602 AD
- The Iestra Foundation experiences civil war once again, this time between Iestraen nationalists and European colonists, in addition to their respective sympathizers. Elementalism and other forms of physical mystical arts are manifested during the campaign, which ultimately ends in colonial defeat. The Iestra Foundation asserts its independence from Europe and severs all ties with foreign nations, at the cost of its already imploding economy.

c. 1600 AD
- The Psion Assembly have begun to capitalize heavily on Orahi crystal deposits and introduce new economic ties with the Iestraen imperialists. Relations between the Assembly and the State have faded to economic neutrality, and border hostility between the Psion people and Iestraen nationalists is still fairly common near resourceful regions of the desert.

1601 - 1603 AD
- Famine kills perhaps a third of Russian population.

1616 AD
- English poet and playwright William Shakespeare dies.

1618 AD
- The Manchus begin to invade China. Their conquest eventually topples the Ming Dynasty.

1627 - 1628 AD
- The Column is surveyed at close range by Psion cartographers and discovered to be a massive source of water with no explicable origin. It is not possible to approach the phenomenon to any appreciable proximity due to the overwhelmingly turbulent winds and oceanic currents it causes.

- Aurochs go extinct in the known world.

1632 AD
- Taj Mahal building work started in Agra, India.

1633 - 1639 AD

1684 AD
- Calculus is independently developed by both Gottfried Leibnitz and Sir Isaac Newton and used to formulate classical mechanics. Both men had spent several years in Astrinea, studying the nature of Rateskejard State sciences.

1699 AD
- Thomas Savery demonstrates his first steam engine to the Royal Society, having collaborated with Vestarne inventors Fredrick Drager and Johannes Oresund. Steam power is entering consideration by the British and Rateskejard alike.

1700 - 1721 AD
- The Great Northern War ensues between Tsarist Russia and the Swedish Empire, in which Russia supplants Sweden as the dominant Baltic power of the period.

1712 AD
- The steam engine is commercially invented in Europe by Thomas Newcomen. Evidence exists that the Rateskejard State had already been employing similar technology in the previous decade, as pioneered by Drager and Oresund.

1717 AD
- The Netherlands, Britain, Rateskejard, and France sign the Quadruple Alliance. Trade and relations between the Rateskejard State and Spain decline significantly as a result.
