Deathlands/Outlanders Time Line
Page Version 1.54
After discussing it with one of the editors at Gold Eagle, as well as Laurence himself, I decided to use the 2096 starting date. For a more detailed Timeline check out the Deathlands Timeline. The link is located on my links page. He did a hell of a job and its really worth checking out.
Ok, Due to some problems encountered in the novels written by the other authors, I have to make a few changes to the timeline. Also, unlike with Laurence's books, I don't mind guessing dates with the other authors works. If you (the author) want to correct my mistakes, please send me a email message at firstname.lastname@example.org
In skydark, the first thing is I had to create a 'Second' Mutant war. Due to the fact that the author said that Ryan participated in the mutant wars which occurred in 2068. If that was the case, he would have been 8 years old! In the book, the author mentioned that Ryan was only a little older than Jak, which would place him in his late teens. So I had to change the timeline to accommodate this.
In Nightmare Passage, the man known as Danielson was supposed to have know Ryan and JB. that is impossible as Ryan and JB were not part of Trader's organization at that time. The only way that he could know about them is from hearing about their exploits over the years.
I've now taken several liberties in times and dates with the other authors books so that they will fit inside the timeline.
6000-4000 B.C, The city of Kharo-Khoto, later known as the Black city by Mongolia nomads is a major commerce center in the southwestern Gobi Desert. Legend has it that it contained the sacred flame, an incredibly powerful source of energy. Historians have speculated that during this period that the Gobi had actually been a very fertile region. Some time in the mists of history some global cataclysm turns the region into a desert. It is theorized that the city had been the capital of an unknown civilization.
3000 B.C. During the third millennium, major monuments are constructed, including the first phase of Stonehenge. The great chambered tumulus of Newgrange, on the northern bank of the Boyne in Ireland, is in use during this period as part of the megalithic tomb tradition. Megalithic structures such as Stonehenge and Newgrange were deliberately constructed above 'points of power' - natural vortices in the quantum field and represent expressions of hyper dimensional mathematics. Hyper dimensional theory provides a fundamental connection between the four forces of nature, a connection between uphill and downhill energy flows between dimensions. Some ancient cultures are aware of these vortices and manipulate the energies in the megalithic structures to open portals into other realms of existence.
1400-1200 B.C. During the advance of teh Israelites into Canaan, Joshua and his army attack the city of Jericho. This event was well documented in the Christian Bible. The walls of the city were brought down using the holy ark of the Covenant. It is theorized that it was some sort of sonic attack, possibly a bombardment that destroyed the walls and allowed Joshua to take the city.
356-323 B.C. Alexander the Great was born. He is reputed to be one of the greatest military geniuses ever known. He was the son of Phillip 2nd of Macedonia, Alexander eventually goes on to conquer Egypt, Persia and part of India before his Death. It is rumored that during his life he used a primitive Diving bell to decent into the depths of the ocean.
334-332 B.C. During the war in Persia, Alexander the great passed through Phrygia and cuts the Gordian knot with his sword. This knot, which was tied by an ancient Phrygian king named Gordius, was supposedly so fiendishly complicated that it could not be untied. According to ancient prophecy, it was to be undone only by the man who should rule Asia. Alexander the Great invaded Egypt and assumed the role of Pharaoh. His general, and successor, Ptolemy, established a long dynasty. His Dynasty included Cleopatra. In Egypt, Alexander founded the city of Alexandria at the mouth of the Nile. This city later becomes the literary, scientific and commercial center of the ancient world.
300 B.C. The emerald Isle of Ireland is colonized by a third wave of invaders. The semi mythological Tuatha De Danaan, who displaced the previous Firbolg population. According to ancient tradition, the Tuatha De Danaan head into Ireland on a magic city of light and founded four great centers of wisdom and learning. The sites of these cities are allegedly entrances to the Bru' magical places not inhabited by humans. According to legend, the Danaan are considered to have arrived in Ireland from outside humanities narrow concepts of space and time. The Danaan brought with them four treasures. The first was the Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny), the second was the sword of Nuadu, the third the Spear of Lugh the Long Arm, and the fourth the Cauldron of the Dagda. Over the course of centuries the Tuatha De Danaan are known by many names, such as the Sidhe and the Gentry. A short while after arriving the Tuatha De Danaan fight two battles. The first against the previous invaders, the Firbolg. A legendary champion Cuchulainn rescues Fand, a high princess of the Danaan Race.
150 B.C. The last major Celtic settlement in Ireland is built when the Children of Miled flee from Roman incursions into the Iberian Peninsula. They invade Ireland at Kerry in the south and the Boyne estuary in the east. The inhabitants during this period, the Tuatha De Danaan are rumored to have returned to Tir na' Nog with the treasure they had brought. Other legends state that the Tuatha De Danaan are supposedly went underground and became immortal.
200 A.D. Khara Bator Janiyn, known in Mandarin as Hara-Tzyan-Tzyun, a warrior and a mystic who could speak the black words, or magic formulas and spells, built a city on the location of Kharo-Khotot. This is the latest in a long line of many cities that existed on the site over the centuries since the initial city was founded. Khara Bator supposedly also possessed a vast and magical treasure. His power grew so great that the Chinese emperor feared him and ended up dispatching an army to subdue the man. His city comes under siege for years. Eventually the Chinese emperor arrived and somehow cut off the water supply to the city. Khara Bator and his people are determined to die fighting, but his favorite daughter persuaded him to flee the city, while she opened the gates for the Chinese army. During his flight from the city, Khara Bator speaks the black words which transformed the Fertile country around into barren wastes. The Chinese forces abandon the city, without plundering the legendary treasures.
