Melkot Regional Timeline

by Denis Tetreault
Version 1.5

The Melkot region has a strong Suel history and thus the Suel calender is the standard used. Also, I use the Suel calender myself for my master timeline, because it eliminates the problem of negative years, however I've included a conversion in brackets for CY (which most sources use).

Note: ~ = approximately
