A Timeline of Events


In these times there was no calendar kept. The time that passed was considered to be tens or hundreds of years. Each incident, while formidable, is a footnote of Oz's history by now.

In the beginning Lurline and her court of Fairies flew over the lands of Oz and enchanted them with Immortal life. Her band moved on, and left behind one: Ozma the First. This one eventually bred into the line of the first Royal Family of Oz. Lurline's direct bloodline creates the Artificers Guild as a way to assist with the training of those who possess magical talent.

King Pastoria is the recognized Ruler of Oz. He was the most notable ruler who did not take the name Oz, or a derivative of it, as his ruling name.

King Pastoria and his Royal Line is deposed by Mombi, the Wicked Witch of the North. By the end of that same year, The Wicked Witches of the North, East, South and West have taken over their respective lands. King Pastoria's daughter, Ozma, is kept in what will later become the Emerald City as a hostage.

Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, and Tattypoo, the Good Witch of the North, overcome their Evil Witch counterparts in those territories. The Wicked Witch of the East and West are considered too powerful and continue their atrocities within their lands.
