I see that 1st edition is based around 1668. When is 2e based around? More importantly I suppose is how long has it been since the War of the Cross has ended. Thank you.
After some preparatory sessions in order to make my players understand the rules for 2nd Edition, I'm am about to start off with a broadscope campaign, starting some 20 years before the official setting. I was however wondering if someone has compiled the timeline for the major events of Théah's recent history. Does any one of you folks know if such a tool is available?
So I have a question: is there a timeline for the 2nd Edition? At one point in the Castille write up it indicates that the War of the Cross is 20 years old ("Castille has a great number of disenfranchised nobility since the War of the Cross ended twenty years ago"), but other comments (such as the line in the Eisen writeup that says "Everyone in Eisen—soldier or otherwise— is a veteran of the War of the Cross" : Really? the population of Eisen is all over twenty-something?) seem to contradict that.
