Timeline of Vana'diel

Ancient Memories: ~10,000 Years Ago

Zilart use the power of the five Mothercrystals to develop their civilization, and the Crags (known as Arks in those times) and Delkfutt's Tower are built
The Crystal Warriors are created by Zilart to protect the Arks

  • Zilart harness the power of the Mothercrystals into smaller forms - Protocrystals

Eald'narche connects with a Mothercrystal at Delkfutt's Tower, and broadcasts the vision to all the Zilart. His growth is stopped
Tu'Lia is built, despite the protests of the Northlands Kuluu and Dawnmaidens
The Crystal Lines are activated and the Mothercrystals drained of massive amounts of power, before the Kuluu attack the northernmost Crag and destroy it

  • The Meltdown; Zilart die, and the surviving Kuluu mutate into Tonberries. Protocrystals largely lose their power, and it is distributed all over Vana'diel (eventually it will accumulate in living bodies, sometimes causing crystallization after death). The Five Races of Altana come into being.
