    Greyhawk Chronological Timeline

    Fellow 'Hawkers,

    Hello. I'm looking to piece together a GH timeline in chronological order that comprises not only the timeline from the '83 boxed set but also the addition of events as chronicled by Gygax and Kuntz in the pages of Dragon.

    When I google for such, I find many websites that have excellent timelines, but they also incorporate the work of authors who came along later, and also some of their own home-brew inventions. This is all fine, but not what I'm looking for.

    I'm looking for a pure Gygaxian/Kuntz timeline. Has anyone ever constructed one as such?

    Thanks and take care,
    --Ghul

    I'd think you could just start from the (excellent) GreyChrondex and delete all of the non-Gygax/Kuntz references (which, of course, amount to 90% of the timeline).

    Thanks DMP--

    This should suit my prupose quite well, allowing me to cut & paste, then delete all the items that do not fit my narrow-minded sense of canon! ;)

    If only the novels were also included...Actually, I do have Erik Mona's treatise on _Saga of the Old City_. I wonder if anyone has ever tried to outline the rest of the Gord books?

    Chris Siren has a pretty good resource for the Gord books.
