Submission: “Someone has fixed the timeline, so far as I know. It’s from the Dragon Age Wiki - http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Age#Chronological_order”
Knight-Enchanter’s note: squints
They fixed some of it but I think it’s still wrong in at least one place? The Silent Grove starts in 9:38 Dragon and Asunder starts in 9:40 Dragon.

And a further correction should be that DA: DoTS should be after DA 2. Kirkwall and the events that happen in it during DA 2 are mention specifically towards the end of the movie. (Another reason why it’s hard for me to accept DoTS as hard cannon due to time constraints, and a few other glaring cannon flaws, but that’s a rant for another time)

Actually DoTS takes places long before DA2, in 9:22 Dragon in Cassandra’s youth. DA2 starts in 9:30 Dragon. The Divine in DoTS is Divine Beatrix III, not Justinia V. Dorothea succeeded her as Justinia V in 9:34 Dragon. When Knight-Commander Martel mentions the events of Kirkwall, he’s not talking about any events of DA2. He’s actually referencing the rebellion in 9:21, when Viscount Perrin Threnhold of Kirkwall tried to expel the templars from the city. His army stormed the Gallows and the then-Knight-Commander was executed. In response templars led by Meredith Stannard stormed Viscount’s Keep and Perrin was tried and imprisoned by Elthina. This should hopefully clear up some of the issues you have with DoTS. :)

Asunder
ends in 9:40, and that’s the only date that’s explicitly mentioned in the book. It’s supposed to start in 9:38 as there are several mentions to the Kirkwall Rebellion happening a year ago, but Asunder doesn’t last a month, and there are other bits of conflicting information as well (Wynne visiting Rhys after the Blight ended in 9:31 9 years ago, Justinia asking Pharamond to start his research 5 years ago when she became Divine in 9:34 etc.)

I like this, we’re all coming together to check everyone’s contributions in a community-based effort to produce a correct chronology. :) DA Wiki says Asunder starts in 9:40. We know the apparent cure for Tranquility was discovered in 9:40, per World of Thedas Vol 1. I guess there are some inconsistencies in the timeline?


The World of Thedas places most of Asunder’s events in 9:40, but it also clearly states that Kirkwall’s Rebellion happened in 9:37. And then Rhys goes on to say "It had been nearly a year since Rhys had first seen Cole. He remembered the time well, because the White Spire had just received news of the rebellion at Kirkwall".  (And there are other mentions to the rebellion being a year ago, so it’s not just the White Spire being super slow to get the news). So yeah, there are definite inconsistencies.

It’s good to know that we weren’t the only ones driven crazy by people who “axe” questions.

Okay, see, we talked about this linguisitic phenomenon in my grammar class. I don’t remember what it’s called, but it happens with other words, too - my professor used an example of “uncomfortable.” When you say it out loud, most likely, it sounds more like “un-comf-ter-ble,” thus mixing up the position of the r and the t, like how the k and the s are mixed in this speech pattern. However, not many people are out here acting high and mighty because someone said “uncomfterble” like they are with “ax,” and that has absolutely everything to do with academic biases - because “ax” is associated mostly with Black people (and occasionally lower-class whites), it’s viewed as “improper” speech, whereas most people, even middle & upper class white people who are thought to speak the most ~proper~ version of English, say “uncomfterble.”
And a quick Google search yields that even Chaucer used “axe” to mean “ask” within his writing. (Source) (Source)
tl;dr actually caring about whether someone says “ask” ~”correctly”~~ is rooted in racist & classist biases of language so, consider, not. 

Most linguistic pedantry is inherently racist in nature.
