Questions for Research
- When was the Silver Kingdoms Epoch?
”'The stories,' he continued between puffs, 'they prove it. What happened to the Heralds? They abandoned us. What happened to the Knights Radiant? They fell and became tarnished. What happened to the [Silver] Epoch Kingdoms? They crashed when the church tried to seize power. You can't trust anyone with power, Syl.'—Kaladin to Sylphrena
- When was the way of kings written/Nohadon ruled?
- How many years between desolations?
- When was the recreance?
Between 4500-1500 years ago. It is not entirely clear when it takes place. Although in the scene Dalivar sees at Feverstone keep, the level of technology present, i.e. leather and bronze armor, seems to be consistent with the period soon after the desolations.
If the recreance happened near the time of the last desolation, what happened with the next ~3300 years?
- When did the Heirocracy Begin?
It is unlikely that the Heirocracy had a specific start date. Likely it was a gradual change in Vorinism which had it's roots either from, or possibly slightly before, and recreance. There was a dichotomy between the heroic knights radiant reveared in vorinism, and the fallen knights of the recreance.
- When was the Vorin Church founded?
