For Calynys's shield I was thinking of a 10 pointed star like this in black on a yellow background. I really like the idea of a black star on a red background but I think that against the rules of heraldry.
It suddenly occurred to me just how absurd this scene was: a guy wearing a suit of armor, standing next to an undead king, both hunched over the controls of a classic arcade game.

Awesome! I think that will work nicely for the Calynys shield.

So posted on the wiki.

I saw Greg has a cool map up as well. I also linked Braden's picture into his wiki entry.

There are quite a number of new, foreign Kingdoms on the wiki now. We won't run out of places to adventure or potential opponents anytime soon.

I've also finally created this:

http://www.the5kingdoms.com/wiki/index. ... e=Timeline

And am still filling it in. Please feel free to update it with other events.

Nice! That is a BIG help.

I think some of your recent dates are off. I thought we met in Fort Last in January of 196 TC, so some of the events (like Kami invading Barloz) are stated as happening too early. Not that a year or two is a hugely big deal in the scheme of things.

The Kingdom Updates say January 194 was the start of the GC. Kami invade Hybet in 194, Mangalore and Barloz in 195. It's 196 now, last I knew, unless you've gone to the new year and started 197.

We have gone on into the next year (that is, the third year of the campaign), but I thought we had started in 196. I had just thought that the date on the main page had never been changed. I guess I am mistaken. Also, I need to regress Mauril's age a bit. He's only 36 now.

There's a thread where I'm keeping updates that has my rough date mileposts in it. We started in January 194, and I have rough dates in for everything else.

I'll change the date to 197 TC. ;)

Why does Rath's wedding get a special timeline entry? I'm sensing author bias. :P

:D Because it's in the Kingdom updates. I'll put in other significant ones eventually (Jareth's comes to mind, along with Casta's) but I don't have the dates memorized and looking them up takes legwork. Or worse, research.

Greg, since you're doing Valean Kingdom(s), I'd recommend you take a look at Sarmatti and Tigraen, their history has a great influence over that continent. And I've written more of it.

Ok, good. I had nothing in between when they fled Murman and establishing Solosteca, so this will help.

Was the kidnapping of Phillipi in 196 or 197? I think it needs to be added to the timeline.

And his return was in February 197. Maybe March, I'm not exactly sure how long you guys spent in Lindur on the Oracle quest.

Takn (Rune Giants), Chien (Goblins!), Kirikarre (Grippli), And Arkkad (Mean Firbolgs!) are all up, plus a few other states it's likely nobody ever noticed before.
