General Timeline

Post by Admin on Wed Oct 07, 2015 6:27 am

STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!!!!


Here you can find the timeline of the World of Two Moons.
Most data is taken from the official wesite, we added the history of each tribe or person to the timeline, it will be highlighted in red.

From the official website elfquest.com!

"Elfquest is a sprawling web of myths and legends told on one level by the elves themselves, and on another by Wendy and Richard Pini, human storytellers, with help over the years from other writers and artists. Elfquest springs from the heart first, rather than the head. It’s meant to stimulate imagination and feelings, where the effect can be more profound and life-changing than that from a list of dry facts. As Elfquest begins its newest episode, “Final Quest,” the “facts” of this timeline may not mesh smoothly with the story as it evolves. Let the tale spin as it will. Each reader will – and should – take her or his own truth from it in the Now as it happens. The past is a dreamberry memory, and legends grow along with their storytellers."

The early High Ones became too many for their planet. Some found other worlds to dwell on. Descendants of those returned to the birthplace. Eventually, these high ones formed groups and went to seek out those on other worlds. They brought trolls and preservers along.

10.000 years before Crossing Paths
Timmain’s group discovered the World of Two Moons. In art and literature, humans depicted immortal creatures, evidence of High Ones. As they landed, the trolls revolted. The High Ones lost control and crashed 20,000 years in the past. The ape-like humans greeted them with brutality.
In order to survive, Timmain took a wolf’s form and hunted for the others. In time, the High Ones made a life for themselves. Timmorn, first chief of the Wolfriders, is born to Timmain and a wolf. Here, the 10,000 years of the Ten Chiefs of the Wolfriders begins.

10.000 years before Crossing Paths
The Palace just crashed, their was chaos every where. Friends killed..
But one escaped and sought refuge in the nearby waters. A miracle had happend! Only a few days before the crash two Recognized for the first time! They didn't know what had happend, but they knew they couldn't ignore the call! No one else knew, but the first children in many eons would be born. Sadly the Sire of this child was killed when the Palace crashed. Leaving his bond alone and scared, not knowing what will happen next.
After two turns of the seasons the High One, who called herself by a new name Twillty, gave birth to a twin. One boy, one girl, they were the first Wavedancers. Asheviire and SandStunner.

10.000-8.000 years before Crossing Paths
Savah and her family found the Sun Village at Sorrow’s End.
Lord Voll and the Gliders moved to Blue Mountain.
Guttlekraw becomes King of the Trolls. Ekuar and his rock-shaper companions Osek and Mekda find the Palace and are enslaved by Guttlekraw. Ice forces Guttlekraw and the rest of the trolls to move south, under the future Holt of the Wolfriders. Greymung rebels against Guttlekraw. Mekda escapes through the Tunnel of Golden Light during the battle. Guttlekraw and his trolls return north. Greymung sends an unnamed troll off to search for rock-shapers. At the same time, Winnowill leaves Blue Mountain, finds the troll, seduces him and gives birth to Two-Edge. She later kills the troll.

9.000 years before Crossing Paths
Timmorn, the first chief, begins dreaming of being a full wolf and is called away by something. Timmain says his magic made him more wolf-like. He decides who he is and everything becomes clear.

9.000-8.000 years before Crossing Paths
This one group of High Ones wandered the world for a long time, sometimes they would meet others, then leave again to find a safe place. A place far away from the humans and other dangers.
They settled in a large forest, creating new dwellings with the help of those with rockshapingmagic. Some of them dreamed of living in the Palace again, but they knew it was too dangerous to reclaim it, so a plan was made to create a new Palace in a mountain nearby. They would be safe from harm then!
But not all agreed. Some wanted to travel as far away from the humans as possible, so the small group split up, one group would later become known as the Gliders, while the others travelled further up north!
Oddly these elves, who weren't prepared to live on this world, found refuge in the high mountains in the north. They needed the help of the Rockshapers who shaped a ring of mountains to keep them from sight. Finally they would be safe! They thought that the humans would not risk the cold climate and blinding storms to follow them.
Anywhere around 600 - 800 years later they discovered Wanders. Their group grew and they started to call themselves Spotted Paws Pride. They bonded with the great Snow Leopards which lived high in the mountains. Some even bonded with Longtooth Cats. (They do not share blood together, like Wolfriders with their wolves!!) The elves learned to hunt from the Leopards, making sure they adapted even more to their life in the mountains.
The Pride lived for a long time secluded from the world, not knowing if others had survived and eventually thinking they were the only ones left. Even the memory of humans dimmed, but to keep the Pride alert, legends were told about the slaughtering of the High Ones and their 'Mountainhome'.
This high in the mountains the elves lived in the freezing cold for most of the year, hunting Tall Deer, Bears and Mountain Goats. Only small groups of three were allowed to go on huntingparties, but wily-elf-cubs would venture out on suprising clear winterdays, when the sky would be partly clouded and the sun's glow could melt a thin layer of snow.


7.457 years before Crossing Paths
ShineBright is born.
Her father, Silver, is part of the Hunt, who are more wolf then elf. Her mother, Leanael is a gifted Healer who knows of her daughter's wolfblood. Afraid of her future she cleansed her blood through nursing her daughter. Silver finds out the truth of his kind, but declines her offer to make him immortal too, although he is gratefull his daughter is an immortal.
Silver is tortured by the looks of the group wanderers to which Leanael belongs and after a heartbreaking goodbye he leaves his family to join his tribe again. A few years later Leanael died of a broken heart.

7.000 years before Crossing Path
These take place during the reign of the fourth chief Two-Spear (at first known as Swift-Spear). Swift-Spear goes to war against the humans of the nearby village. The humans are forced to leave and he earns the name Two Spear. His sister, Huntress Skyfire, but she is not yet chief.
Two-Spear begins to have strange dreams of the humans returning and believes they are no longer safe. His lifemate Willowgreen recognizes Graywolf. Two-Spear’s dreams bring him to a chamber, possibly formed by high ones. He believes high ones told him to go to war. He goes back to the wolfriders, and his chieftainship is challenged by his sister Huntress Skyfire. The tribe splits and Two-Spear leaves with half the tribe to become the Go-Backs.
Kahvi returns from her hunt with nothing. Her father Two-Spear says she’s weak. His lovemate says there are other ways to lead. Icetooth finds her and says she should be pack leader and chief. In a cavern made by the High Ones she challenges Two-Spear. Kahvi and her father battle. Two-Spear means to kill her but she wounds him twice before he knocks her down. She gets up for more but is stabbed through her chest and falls into a pool. Two-Spear says he never had a daughter and they leave.

2,000 – 600 years beforeCrossing Paths
These take place during the reign of the eighth chief, Goodtree. However, Mantricker is the main character of the last three of these. Goodtree founds the Holt where the Wolfriders live until EQ # 1
Hummer and Buckthorn, two very competetive Wolfriders, try to outdo each other at everything. When they have a staring match, they recognize after two days.

These take place after Bearclaw is born. Bearclaw discovers the trolls. Mantricker dies, and Bearclaw becomes the Wolfriders’ tenth chief.


1450 years before Crossing Paths
Stonescroll is born.
Stonescroll was born to loving parents and his first tribe-name was Feather. Soon it was discovered that he had strong magic: both the skill of rockshaping and that of making objects - and elves - float in the air. His people were astonished but grew to appreciate the things he could do for them. Magic was rare among them. Many in that people had green or blue hair, due to a change made by a flesh-shaper generations ago, for reasons now forgotten.

1.250 years before Crossing Paths
Grassroot is born.
Grassroot was born to a group of nomad elves who had a trace of Wolfblood. Her parents were lovemates before they Recognized, and after it remained lifemates for the rest of their lives. She has no siblings. Her mother was called Morningdew and her father was called Foxwit. Both of them were hunters.

750 years before Crossing Paths
Peacekeeper is born.
A cub of a bearrider named Woodskeeper and a Sun Folk maid named Peacedreamer. Woodskeeper visited the village and fell deeply in love with Peacedreamer, and she returned the feelings as they recognized.  He brought her back to his holt named Bearwood, as they lived there for a bit.
Soon a cub was born, and with his characteristics being much the same of each of his parents, he was named Peacekeeper (even as a cub).  His parents gave him a necklace that was very beautiful and had a jewel for its base.  But when he was 3 hands and 2, the holt was ambushed but a great many trolls!  He hid and watched in horror as the trolls killed his parents (thus his fear above).
As he ran for his life with his bond, and after a few nights of fear, and crying, a kind human found him and took care of him for a while.  This was a lesson his mother taught him of good and bad among all races.  Then by magic, his necklace started glowing with the spirit of his parents, whom he swears he can hear them talking to him and giving him solace and wisdom!  Through the turns, he went through many holts and bonds.

Birdcall receives his new name, Treestump.
After Two-Spear’s death, Icetooth leads the split-off Wolfrider tribe to a cave. Kahvi is alive in a pool, preserved by it’s magic. They have no wolf-blood due to Willowgreen’s trickery. But Kahvi does. She becomes chief of what will be the Go-Backs. While hunting a large stag Icetooth is stabbed with an antler. Kahvi kills it. He says to wear the four braids of chief as he dies.
Rayek is born to Jarrah and Ingen. Leetah is born to Suntoucher (Anatim) and Toorah twelve years later.

569 years before Crossing Paths
Siwan lived at her mother's tribe when she left on a journey to find her lifemate,Normak, who came back with her. Her mother died by the hands of humans and her sister took the place of chieftess.
They lived at the Split Spear holt for many seasons, where they stayed until she and Normak ran into a bear who took her lifemate from her. She took revenge by chasing it down, stripped it from its furs and took some of its claws.

489 years before Crossing Paths
Faunbrook is born.
Though he was raised by the Spotted Paw.
His Dame showed him how to find small animals and bugs to live off of as meals, roots, to sustain life when there are no large animals are around.
From her he learned tanning,skinning,herbal remedies,patching clothes, while his Sire showed him how to hunt,build traps, braid rope,fish, fight, stand his ground.
At some point after both parents died he began to resent hearing of others sending to him. He loved his parents and sent to them regularly growing up, but once he could no longer hear their sending...It weighed on him and soon he longed to just be alone. When the thaw came he wandered outside the through the thin passage and that was the last time Any elf saw trace of him from the Spotted Paw anyhow. He last was seen heading west to the cost line. There he has lived for nearly 300-ish years. After discovering that three trolls lived in the ground he started to lure them into trading goods for goods and after a time, the two males fell in as the elf had goods the Troll Maiden wanted. This made Faunbrook very happy. He built a nice stilted lodge hidden in a thick group of bushes, vines and trees to keep animals and trolls from stealing from him while he sleeps.

485 years before Crossing Paths
Strongbow runs from an angry bear. He’s chased up a tree. Bearclaw leaves it cub hanging from a branch and they return to the Holt. Strongbow wanted to hunt the bear like Bearclaw, to prove himself. Bearclaw knocks him down. "Only I hunt the bear!" Rain heals Strongbow. Joyleaf says Bearclaw constantly tests himself, never satisfied.

462 years before Crossing Paths
Coraldar is born.

436 years before Crossing Paths
When Peacekeeper was 314, he met a group of elves with a variety of bonds in a holt called Mountainview.  He was made their Chief Councillor for his wisdom, and eased many a mind with his healing.  Yet again another troll ambush scattered them, and he became a wanderer.  He was greatly sought by chieftans in several holts he resided in.

Discouraged, the rest of the tribe left the area in search of a kinder home, but further tragedies befell them. During a terrible storm the tribe was separated by a flash flood, and Stillwater, her wolf River, her father's mother Hearteyes and her wolf Guide, tribe member Stonehand  and three of the other wolves were washed away downstream. Stillwater had already began to discover her watershaping magic, and used what little she had to keep them all together and afloat until they could reach dry land. Desperate to reach the rest of their tribe the small group travelled on, weakened but still searching.

35-30 years before Crossing Paths
Cutter, Scouter and Dewshine born. Cutter to Chief Bearclaw and Joyleaf, Scouter to One-Eye and Clearbrook, and Dewshine to Treestump and Rillfisher.

32 years before Crossing Paths
Xioto is born.
Not much is known about him, his mother was always a loner elf from a traveling tribe. She fell in love with the serpents or the forest and from a very young age would spend years in serpent form getting to know the creatures she loved so much. So much so she forgot about her elf blood and the tribe she once belonged to. Years after forsaking her elven heritage she met a snake named Whiptail. She fell in love and they became a mated pair, when she laid her first clutch and only got one egg it was confusing then that egg hatched and out spilled a small elven child with tender pink scales. It was only then she remembered her elven blood and slowly regained her true form. Together Whiptail and Morgella raised their half elf child. He grew up understanding the ways of both snakes and elves and they taught him everything he needed to survive. He adapted well and enjoyed life as both elf and snake. However, tragedy struck and humans killed his parents because they were ‘monsters’ which fueled his hate for them all the more.

20 years before Crossing Paths
After getting rid of Cutter, Skywise goes with Foxfur into the dreamberry patch. They see a human making a circle of rocks, wearing the ornament Eyes High wore in her hair. Skywise attacks him, demanding to know where he got it. He and his brother couldn’t keep Skywise’s mother alive. For making a mockery of the ceremony by running off with Eyes High, his brother Taf was killed. This is his grave. The ornament isn’t a trophy, but a symbol of his shame. Skywise cuts it off of him and rides away.

The High Ones’ "recorder" falls near the Holt.

Rillfisher is killed.
Redmark changes his name to Redlance.

20 years before Crossing Paths
Soren used to live in a white mountainvalley until part of his tribe was shunned, then Soren, moved to the mountainbase with his tribe, until they knew where to go. While he was scouting an area his family was ambushed by humans with wolf like creatures. He felt his lifemate’s fear and returned too late. He left this place and has been alone with his bond Ice ever since.

18 years before Crossing Paths
Greensong is born.
Greensong was born of the recognition of Hawk and Wildrose. Wildrose was and still is lifemates with a female called Mossfern. All three of them were parents to Greensong in equal measure, and she grew up supported by the love of her family. It is possible that she was more than a little spoiled, although she is growing out of it.

17 years before Crossing Paths
Sirmic is born.
The group his family traveled with decided to go where the screams had seemed to come from, to offer help, to find others like them… Their journey was perilous and many dangers and sicknesses all but decimated the group in a short time. In the end, he found himself alone. Not knowing what else to do, Sirmik decided to keep travelling to the place his elders had wanted to go to.

16 years before Crossing Paths
Madcoil decimates the Wolfrider tribe. Deaths include Rain, Brownberry, Longbranch (One-Eye’s older brother, until NB # 6 recently known as Longreach), Foxfur (Skywise’s lovemate), Joyleaf and Bearclaw.

15 years before Crossing Paths
WildStar is born to the Bearriders.
She became an orphan at a very young age and tried to take care of herself. Didn't want the elders of her tribe to take care of her, because she didn't want to be a burdain to them. She tried to make her own clothes, but she was really bad at it. So the tribestanner made her an outfit which she could alter to her liking. Unknowing she is looking for a rolemodel, one she hasn't found yet, but looks secretly at others to see how they do things and learns from them.

14 years before Crossing Paths
Dart is born to Strongbow and Moonshade.

11 years before Crossing Paths

10 years before Crossing Paths
Humans burn the forest and the Holt. The Wolfriders escape across the desert. Cutter and Leetah recognize. Cutter and Rayek’s original challenge.

10 years before Crossing Paths
Warmspun is born.
When Warmspun was about 3 a tragedy struck her Parents and her mother and sibling died in birth. (Probably why she let the scar stay on her hand, but would never admit that even to herself.) Her Father raised her till she was about 6 and he grew too weak to live, in-spite of the Adult Healer in the tribe. It was a big loss to the tiny Warmspun. She was inconsolable for days till she had a dream of her parents telling her repeatedly she was a strong healer and must live. She started to eat and over time even smile and get along with the tribe or pride. The Spotted Paw way is to help where ya can if allowed to and then walk away letting life happen as it will as all cats understand is the way of life.

Rayek and Ekuar are led through the Frozen Mountains by Two-Edge’s voice, and are found by Go-Backs. Guttlekraw kills Greymung, and enslaves most of his subjects. Only Picknose, Oddbit and Old Maggoty escape.

3 years before Crossing Paths
The original Quest takes place during one summer/ fall. The search for other elfes, Lod Voll's death, the Palace War and the learning of the past of all elfes!

The year Crossing Paths was formed
Venka is born to Kahvi and Rayek. Dart visits the Wolfriders with his twelve "Jack-Wolfriders," of which three have been named: Zhantee, Dodia and Shu-shen (later Shushen). Aroree abandons Blue Mountain. Blue Mountain falls and Strongbow kills Kureel. The human tribe Hoan-G’Tay-Sho leave, taking the catatonic Door with them as an object of worship.

Disappearance of the Palace, first year of the Cry/Call
Kahvi is separated from her tribe. Picknose is thrown out, together with Oddbit, Old Maggoty and Trinket. Rayek and the Wolfriders take the Palace to the Sun Village. Ekuar makes a miniature Palace and gives it to Savah. Rayek and most of the Wolfriders go to a new continent, bringing Zhantee and Shenshen, and leaving Dart, Scouter, Dewshine and Windkin in the Sun Village.
In the Sun Village, a few days after the Palace has left, Ahdri learns she is a rock-shaper.
The palace vanishes with Rayek, Leetah, Skywise, Suntop, Ember, Ekuar and Trinket in it. The Palace will reappear some 10,000 years later in what would be the cultural equivalent of the 1300s A.D. on Earth. No calendar system of dates has yet been devised for Abode, however.
