Fictional Facts of the Phoenix Empire Part six - History of the Empire  
As there have repeatedly been questions and a few misunderstandings, I have sat down on New Year's Day and condensed a brief history timeline out of our notes. Of course this is far from complete, but it is meant to be just an orientation for those who are interested.

Most of the really important and interesting moments of the Phoenix Empire we’re going to write about sooner or later, anyway. As we post more and more pieces, we will continuously update this post and add relevant dates and links, where appropriate. Also, if we have mentionend an event in a story somewhere that is not included in this list, please let me know. As long as it is not totally minor, I’ll gladly add it to the timeline below.

The Silver Age

Everything before 2976 is considered prehistory and mostly irrelevant. With the activation of the first jumpgate, Humanity entered the interstellar stage, setting the foundations for the glorious Empire we witness today.

First jumpgate activated

First Contact with the Youh’Kai, the first Aliens ever to pose a significant threat to humanity.

Beginning of the Youh’Kai War, Sacking of Agrabah.

End of Youh’Kai War

The Gilded Republic

Little is known about the Gilded republic, except that is was a time of borrowed wealth and unsustainable welfare, created by a short-sighted democratic government.

3900 (ca)
Collapse of the Gilded Republic.

The Dark Ages

The collapse of the Gilded Republic lead to a breakdown of almost all interstellar travel and communication. Humanity descended into a Dark Age of isolation, and lots of knowledge of the Gilded Republic was lost.

Rediscovery of Guild Central marks the end of the Dark Ages.

The noble houses that came into power during the Dark Ages struggled for dominance, squabbling, splitting, merging and killing each others off until they became the Noble Houses we know today.

The Phoenix Empire

With the crowning of the first human Emperor, humanity for the first time is united under a single, strong leadership, and only the gods know what the future may hold.

Hm... *scratches head*

Amy and Greg will never get a proper storyline, else they will swallow us whole.

But a 'meet the parent' scene? I might be tempted.
