    Default Timeline of Telara - some issues

    Hello fellow lore junkies!

    I recently completed a first pass at revamping the Timeline page on the Telarapedia, and I'd appreciate comments, especially regarding any key points I missed.

    In particular, I'm wondering if we have any information on the fall of Port Scion other than the fact that Zareph died during that period. I'm also wondering if anyone knows of sources with actual dates or precise time periods of events.

    You did a wonderful job! Thank you very much. This is extremely helpful for those of us who are still very new to the Rift lore.

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. However please bear in mind that this timeline does not take into account the new information on time traveling. I deliberately ignored it because it contradicts quite a bit of pre-existing information (as other posters have mentioned), which leads me to suspect that the devs will either tweak the time travel information or retcon the lore.

    I noticed your timeline assumes that the Blood Storm were imprisoned on the elemental planes, but they were not. They are actually imprisoned on Telara. In this video Adam Gershowitz talks about the zone of Iron Pines where Crucia, the dragon god of air, is imprisoned beneath a frozen lake. (Yeah I know it sounds like GW2 ).

    I'm not sure where the others are imprisoned but they aren't on the planes. It is possible that Regulos may not be imprisoned at all after Aedraxis called him forth. I'm not real clear on that point. The evil that we see coming through the rifts into Telara is caused by the influence the Blood Storm had over those planes during the Blood Storm War and they may possibly still have some influence now even from their places of imprisonment, but the Blood Storm are not physically present on the planes, nor do they rule over the planes.

    Thanks for the info and link! I'll update the page in a few hours.

    If they aren't on the planes then are they on Telara? If they are physically on Telara(or another part of the world seeing as how Telara is the known world and possibly not the actual planet) I would think one or more of them(especially Regulos) would be dominating everything.

    My take on the whole thing is that they are all imprisoned(ala The Dark One style via the cuendillar seals in The Wheel of Time series, minus the seals). Otherwise, the Rifts themselves would be a lesser threat than any or all of the Bloodstorm dragons.

    I think its that at least the 5 of the 6 are on Telara. Greenscale and Crucia are especially known so far. Regulos is possibly MIA though. Regulos is a pretty unknown known at this point lol - he is dealt with, but I don't know what his place is in the world of Telara, other than that he plays a central role.

    The Dragons have to do with the planes, and hold influence over them - but they are not the controllers of them, and they reside on Telara - just sealed.
