Here I present a rough historical timeline of the Celestial Empire in Forge of Destiny. In the Empire dates are measured on a regnal calendar, where the year resets to 1 at the beginning of each emperor's or empress' reign. For example the current year in story is Year 43 of the reign of Xiang of the Third Dynasty. As such the timeline here will be presented as a simple count backward from the present day for simplicities sake.
