TIMELINE OF VELGARTH

📖 Title of Book: Chapter of Book  |   ♘ Notes from Herald-Chronicler Intern, M'rlyn  |   LINKS Open in a Seperate Tab  |   Possible Non-Canon Story

1100 BF (Before Founding)

After the Adepts began to surface from all of the Journeymen Mages, the first Great Work occurred when magic was “used to enrich an eroded floodplain, while the baron’s men built levees to make use of the renewed soil.
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

This involved a little less than 60 journeymen level Mages and a single Adept
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

One of the journeymen was a young Mage named Urtho
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

1095 BF

Urtho, now an Adept, begins holding "movable feasts" that travel from village to city, that were actually "salons" where Mages would gather together and share Notes on their spells and other works. These "salons advanced magical theory to a level that might have taken a century more, had they not flourished"
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

1090 BF

Urtho develops a set of "weights and measures" for magic use
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

Kiyamvir Ma'ar was born in Predain. Also known as Mage of Black Fire
I'm placing this event here as it gives time for Ma’ar to grow up and become an Adept, but still be younger and not as experienced as Urtho
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

1089 BF

Urtho becomes known as the Mage of Silence due to his ability to only use enough energy to get the job done and no more, so none can be detected by other mages
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

1085 BF

Animal Husbandry, enhanced by magic, becomes a new trend of the Adept world. This is called "uplifting"
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

By this time Adepts are numbered in the scores and are as influential as kings
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

Khal Herta, an Adept, begins "uplifting" the hertasi. The hertasi were mild-tempered reptiles, available in large quantity, living fairly simple lives. They could be described as semi-sentient at this time when Urtho engages in the practice that an even dozen of his peers have. Hertasi had simple structures, organized hunting and fishing, and rudimentary medicine
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

1080 BF

Khal Herta dies and his work is passed to Urtho. With the hertasi, Urtho takes the approach of increasing the intelligence of hertasi social leaders, and encouraging them to breed with their subordinates, and then increasing the intelligence of their offspring. It creates a surprisingly seamless acceptance among the hertasi for those who are far smarter than any had been before. Part of the uplift, however, is also instilling in the hertasi that they should be appreciative for what they had become. This lives on, into the current timeline, as the unstoppable helpfulness the hertasi as a whole have. Even the grouchiest hertasi knows that they "owe" Urtho and his descendents for having as good a life as they do
I'm placing this event here as it is stated that Urtho's peers have already done things like this. Therefore time has passed since this new "fad" in the magic industry has had some time to show others how "cool" it is
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

1070 BF

The Mage Wars begin
  📖 Under the Vale: Under the Vale

1050 BF

Chapter One states that Urtho's armies have been losing border towns for half a generation.
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

1049-1001 BF

At the age of thirteen, while studying at the College of Chirurgeons in Predain, Brightbird, a member of Amberdrake's family, is lost during the chaos of the Mage Wars
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

1002 BF

Skandranon Rashkae faces Adept Kiyamvir Ma'ar for the first time
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

1000 BF

Hypothesis: I'm guessing that the date 1000 BF is the actual date when Urtho and Ma'ar's Towers were destroyed

General Corani had been assigned at Stelvi Pass until now
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

Six Days Later

Skandranon Rashkae volunteers to scout out the enemy army and to try and capture the new magical weapon. his magical senses are enhanced by Urtho
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

Five Days Later

Premonitions and nightmares among the more sensitive and marginally Gifted among the Healers and kestr'chern awaken them to the knowledge that Urtho's army had lost Stelvi Pass
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

One Day Later

Skandranon (Skan) arrives at the Pass of Stelvi spying on the enemy
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

Hertasi and tervardi are mentioned as having been in Urtho's Army
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

Laisfaar is now the enemy army's quarters
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

Skan infiltrates the camp and kills the Weaponsmaster. He captures a new weapon that had been used to take Stelvi Pass earlier
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

Skan is chased by 6 makaar and the makaar leader, Kili
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

General Corani is being treated by kestra'chern Amberdrake. He is usually treated by Riannon Silkedre
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter One

Healer Tamsin and Lady Cinnabar are on night duty for the next 10 days
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter Two

Next Day

Skan makes it back at camp badly injured & having swallowed the magical weapon. It is pre-dawn
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter Two

Several Hours Later

Amberdrake (Drake) wakes up after helping heal Skan and goes to see him
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter Two

Later in the Afternoon

Drake seems to wonder why he's thinking of Winterhart even though he's never met her
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter Three

At Sunset

Urtho comes to visit a convalescing Skan
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter Three

Skan thinks that no one knows Urtho's race or age. He could be 60 or 600
Hypothesis: It is later suggested that Urtho was a Kaled'a'in clan member at one time since he referred to them as "my Kaled'a'in"
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter Three

Commander Loren asks Urtho to reward a gryphon
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter Three

Zhaneel first mentioned – killed 3 makaar all by herself
  📖 The Black Gryphon: Chapter Three

Urtho awards Zhaneel with a Gold Token

Half-a-Day Later

300 people plus Errold and Master Thomas, Gate away
  📖 Sun In Glory: Errold's Journey

Next Day

Urtho's Tower and Ma'ars Citadel explode and Master Thomas & Errold see the flash
Hypothesis: According to the official maps, Errold's Grove is in the northern part of Valdemar. This means the flash they see is actually that of Ma'ars Citadel and not Urtho's Tower. The curvature of the world would not allow them to see the flash of Urtho's Tower and the flash of Ma'ars Citadel would have blocked out any light from the Tower
  📖 Sun In Glory: Errold's Journey

Half-an-Hour Later

The Mage Storms hit the shields and change magic forever
  📖 Sun In Glory: Errold's Journey

The Mage Storms lasts for a day

Mistress Karilgrass is mentioned as someone who knews herbology. She is the Master Gardner whom Doladan mentioned
  📖 Changing the World: For Want of a Nail

Torimund, Felara and Senard are mentioned as names of soldiers
This Torimund, created in 2009, is not to be confused with Tormund Giantsbane, a character from A Storm of Swords from August 8, 2000, book three of the A Song of Ice and Fire series
  📖 Changing the World: For Want of a Nail

King Treven and Queen Jisa become grandparents to three grandsons and 2 granddaughters. The youngest grandson is named Gregori

Midsummer
Hypothesis: I place this event at the time between the declaration of war by Karse and just before Stefen dies because of two reasons:
One: Stefens job was to tell others that Herald s are just as good as Herald-Mages which causes the spell Vanyel cast to make people NOT think about Magic even stronger
Two: The spell Vanyel cast means that Mages cannot do magic in Valdemar without going mad so to all non-mages it appears that you cannot do magic in Valdemar. This is mentioned by Herald Gaurane when he says magic doesn’t work in Valdemar. But as they are working the Karse border during the war, and the border to Iftel and Valdemar is still open, I’m placing the timing here

Elade, a mercenary from Sensholding and Journeyman Bard Meran enter the fairgrounds of the Summerfaire
  📖 Under the Vale: Catch Fire, Draw Flame

Meran, Elade, Herald Gaurane (who refuses to be a Herald) Chosen by Companion Rhoses, and MindHealer Hedion are a group that specialize in finding those whose minds had been warped, along the Karsite border, by the Karsite demons and reviving them

It is possible he was talking about the start of the wars that would kill Sendar in the end
