Turok Timeline
« on: September 15, 2019, 10:17:14 PM »
So I have no idea exactly how many people would even find this interesting, but a couple of weeks ago, I decided to do a thing. I present to you: an in-depth (and exhaustive?) timeline of events as they relate to the Turok video games.

https://turok.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Operative_lm/Turok_Timeline_-_Acclaim_Video_Games

I mentioned it in the opening paragraphs, but I'll repeat it here that this timeline only concerns the main, non-Game Boy video games and their officially published supplementary material. That's the manuals, strategy guides, and websites. Any bit of story from a magazine or gaming website, even if it was from a developer interview, was not considered for this project.

I'm willing to answer questions if anybody has them, lol. :V

I love this timeline, good resource!

Just a minor quibble, did Syra and her father live in Araissi or did they only sell weapons to Araissi? The wiki article on her leaves this question kind of open-ended. Also how do you figure what her age is during Rage Wars? I know you said in the intro that it's impossible to know when exactly events took place, so im assuming you grouped events together because of that.

I had initially taken the reference to selling weapons to Araissi to mean that they were also based in Araissi, but looking at it again, that's purely speculation on my part. The timeline has been updated to remove this. Thanks for the catch!

Heh, I kinda just guessed on her age. The strategy guide puts her at 14 when her father is killed, but that's it. It's very helpful, lol. Since the text doesn't use any language that implies a large amount of time passes (think decades), I decided that she's probably close to Joshua's age. Again, purely speculation, but I needed to put the entry somewhere. :V

This was a good read though. I just got some time to read a lot of it today and I enjoyed that there.
