Of Cats And Dragons

Timeline for the Of Cats And Dragons World

We have a very long timeline for our world since we've been developing it for many years. This is just a very small slice of that timeline to give you an idea of where the books and stories all fit in. We're only adding events that have been directly mentioned in the stories themselves. We'll update this as the story unfolds.

The dating on our timeline is based on the Of Cats And Dragons world calendar. The current world calendar starts counting at the formation of the Covenant of the Gods -- the covenant that created separate worlds or dimensions for immortal creatures so that the weaker mortal races had a chance to survive. While it is referred to in the books primarily as the Covenant, it is actually the second Covenant as the first one was broken by the Elder God Cerioth. Cerioth destroyed the gates between the worlds and released all the immortal races back into the mortal realm, which nearly destroyed it. Cerioth was imprisoned by his siblings, and the second Covenant was formed approximately 14,000 years ago.

The actually monthly calendar in the Of Cats and Dragons world is different as well. The months are identified by the seasons only. Midseason falls literally in the middle of the season, unlike our calendar when midsummer is actually the start of summer. The months are known by the designation of early, mid, and late, such as Early Spring, or Mid Winter, or Late Summer. The days are numbered 1-30 (their years are much more even than ours). So a typical date would be Early Spring 12, 14,021. For clarity sake I've listed the Beginning and End of the year in the listing below. The year starts in Late Winter (January) and ends Mid Winter (December).

If you're just looking for a short listing of the order of our books and stories, you'll find that at the bottom of the Site Index.
