碧蓝时代Blue Age

阴影时代Shadow Epoch

雷霆时代Days of Thunder:-35000 DR ~ -30000 DR

  约距今37000年前,冰川消融,海洋后退,干燥的陆地露出水面,一次漫长的 冰河期Ice Age 结束了,有记录的历史随之开始。在 大陆分离The Sundering 之前的远古时期,日后被称作 费伦大陆Faerûn卡拉-图大陆Kara-Tur马兹特克大陆Maztica扎卡拉次大陆Zakhara 的几块大陆都不过是名为 梅茹罗布罗斯超大陆Merrouroboros 的超级大陆的一部分,而目前生活在诸国度中的十几个常见种族则没有任何一个出现在这个遥远时代。梅茹罗布罗斯大陆上没有任何文明种族-精灵、矮人、半身人和侏儒;而野蛮种族-地精、兽人、食人魔及其亲族也都未曾出现。虽然在此时期人类已经诞生,不过他们极为原始,与猿猴无异,使用着简单工具并居住在洞穴中。这就是雷霆时代,它属于 艾夸-泰'奎瑟一族Iqua-Tel'Quessir,精灵语中意为“人民之前的种族”—传说中的创造者种族。

破晓时代Dawn Ages:-30000 DR ~ -24000 DR

  创造者种族建立的帝国逐渐隐没在记忆之中,宣告了 巨龙时代Time of Dragons 和 巨人时代Time of Giants 的开始。巨龙及其氏族统治着大片领土;为了获得陆地、海洋和天空的控制权,这些彼此竞争的爬行动物征战不休。在这一时期,费伦大陆Faerûn 的巨龙之间爆发了毁灭性的战争,导致一些巨龙统治的小块偏远土地落入巨人之手。随着时间的推移,这些巨人王国开始威胁到龙类的霸权,最终在巨人王国 达卡王国Darchar格伦菲斯汀王国Grunfesting海利吉姆王国Helligheim奈德海姆王国Nedeheim奥斯托利亚王国Ostoria 以及 兰弗吉尔王国Rangfjell 与巨龙国度 阿戈斯希尔利亚克斯王国Argissthilliax卡伊斯恩玛尔席维尔王国Caesinmalsvir达拉斯特瑞沃希卡王国Darastriverthicha 以及 萨克利克斯贡提克斯王国Tharkrixghontix 之间爆发了全面战争。

繁盛时代Time of Flowers:-24000 DR ~ -12000 DR

  在这一时代,伟大的精灵文明在 费伦大陆Faerûn 到达顶峰。伴随着精灵对兽人、巨龙和巨人的节节胜利,其他种族在安全的环境中渐渐兴盛,进入各自的文明时代。

皇冠战争Crown Wars:-12000 DR ~ -9000 DR

  精灵族Elves 的 皇冠战争Crown Wars 爆发于一万两千多年以前,延续了长达四个精灵世代之久。发生在皇冠战争期间,并且至今仍在影响诸国度的两个最重大事件就是 黑暗天灾Dark Disaster卓尔精灵沉降Descent of the Drow。黑暗天灾彻底摧毁了森林国度 麦叶理塔王国Miyeritar,只留下现在被称为 至高荒原High Moor 的一 片焦土。也许是因为皇冠战争期间的野蛮行径、又或者因时间流逝而无从考证的其他因素,黑暗精灵在这 一时期腐化堕落,与自己的同胞分道扬镳。在挑起 众多战争以及犯下无数酷行之后,他们移居到了世界的地表之下,变成了 地底精灵deep elf,又被称作 卓尔精灵drow。

开创纪元Founding Time:-9000 DR ~ -3000 DR

  这个时代标志着所有类人生物文明的崛起,此时很多巨龙和巨人的统治早已被推翻,而笼罩在每个人头上的精灵战争阴影也已消散。精灵王国艾弗瑞斯卡和永聚岛通过殖民的方式与其他国家一道慢慢成长,这其中包括人类王国恩瑟和柯拉珊,以及矮人王国至高沙纳塔和奥格兰。

人类时代Age of Humanity:-3000 DR ~ -1000 DR

  随着精灵与矮人国度走向衰落,此纪元标志着人类在托瑞尔世界戏剧性的崛起。强大的人类帝国卡林珊、穆尔霍兰德与恩瑟,还有已经消逝的耐色瑞尔、札姆达斯、纳菲尔以及洛曼萨都诞生于这一时期。

现代The Present Age:1000 DR ~至今

  这是一个探索与发现的时代,在西方发现了新大陆,与东方重建了贸易联系。这是一个大冰川消退的年代,瓦萨与达玛拉两个国家显露于阳光之下。这也是一个诸神之战的年代,众神的力量很大程度上取决于他们各自的信徒。


3rFR<Grand History of the Realms.p004>介绍Introduction

译者:佚名

  托瑞尔星球Toril 各地-特别是 费伦大陆Faerûn -的历史浩如烟海。随着无数世代的交叠更替,时光流逝,帝国盛衰。本年表提供了被遗忘国度战役设定的历史,囊括了它的全部光辉与荣耀。我们把数十本资源书中的信息汇集在一起,编纂成为这部权威年表。
All of Toril, and especially Faerûn, is rich in history. As the eons have passed, empires have risen and fallen all around the world. This chronology presents the history of the FORGOTTEN REALMS setting in all its glory. We’ve brought together information from dozens of sources to provide the defi nitive chronicle.

时间线格式Timeline Format

  本书的大部分内容都是各种简短条目,它们共同组成了 费伦大陆Faerûn 以及 托瑞尔星球Toril 其他大陆的历史时间线。事件是按照它们的发生年份或者时代顺序来排列的这是理所当然的。另外,最近四年发生的历史事件开始于1372 DR都是按照发生或开始日期列出的。
The bulk of this book is made up of brief entries that collectively form a timeline of the history of Faerûn and the other continents of Toril. The events are presented (naturally) in chronological order according to the year or time frame in which they occurred. In addition, the events for the four most recent years in history (beginning with 1372) are laid out in order by the day on which each event occurred or began.

  英雄们的传奇不但漫长而且复杂,所以我们加入了一些指示点——“链接”。 如果你愿意的话,只需按照互相关联的指示点从某年跳到另一年之前或之后,就可以阅读到一系列互相关联的历史事件。
Because the saga is a long and complex one, we’ve inserted a number of pointers—“links,” if you will—that make it possible to read about a single chain of events by following a certain set of pointers from one year to the next one (or the previous one) in the sequence.

  举例来说,如果你浏览此书并注意到了在851 DR曾提到了 伊尔明斯特Elminster 的话,就会看到在他的名字后面有着[720,1179]——这指的是下一次提到伊尔明斯特是在1179 DR,而上一次则是在720 DR。沿着这条链接向前或向后或两者,你可以迅速地发现时间线中任何曾提到过 阴影谷贤者the Sage of Shadowdale 的地方。如果某个名字或术语仅仅带有一个指示点的话,那此处要么是这条链接的开始,要么就是结尾。
For instance, if you’re browsing the book and you notice a mention of Elminster in the year 851, you’ll see that his name is followed by [720, 1179]—indicating that the next mention of Elminster is in the year 1179 and the previous one is in 720. By following that chain backward or forward (or both), you can soon discover every place where the timeline has something signifi cant to say about the Sage of Shadowdale. (If a name or term is accompanied by only a single pointer, that place represents either the beginning or the end of that particular chain.)

  相当多的名字或术语并不附带指示点,因为它们出现的频率太高,如果每次都配上数字的话将会使文章变得凌乱,不利于阅读。如果在每次提到 深水城Waterdeep迷斯·卓诺Myth Drannor散提尔堡Zhentil Keep 时这样的名字太多了 我们都提供指示点的话,这条时间线将会被大量括号内的数字塞满。所以,如果想找出任何关于阴影谷或其他例子的相关事件的话,你将不得不…… 读完此书。
Quite a few names or terms are not accompanied by pointers because they show up so often that putting year numbers in every location would break up the text so much that it would become too difficult to navigate. If we provided pointers for every mention of Waterdeep, Myth Drannor, and Zhentil Keep (to name just a few), the timeline would have quickly become overrun by an epidemic of numbers in brackets. So, if you want to fi nd out all about Shadowdale (another example), you’re just going to have to . . . read the book.

费伦大陆的君主政体王朝表MONARCHIES OF FAERÛN

  本书的第74~86页列出了一份相当有参考价值的附属表格,在那里我列出了关于 费伦大陆Faerûn 人类国度所有统治者的详细列表。这些信息是由 George Krashos 编辑的,提供了大量在时间线中未被提及的细节。各国统治者都有他们自己的小故事!
A worthy companion to the timeline appears on pages 74 through 86, where we have reproduced detailed lists of the rulers of all the human realms of Faerûn. This information, compiled by George Krashos, provides a host of details that are not also mentioned in the timeline. The history of each country’s rulers is a story in itself!

历法转换Calendar Conversions

  作为将会被老练的 费伦大陆Faerûn 历史学家所关注的时间线的一项重要特征,我们将用当前通用的谷地历法DR来记述所有的年份。诸国度中的各个文明使用着不同的历法,而它们彼此间的差异也给贤者们带来了巨大困扰。请看下面的注解,这是关于如何将谷地历转换成其他历法。
One notable feature of the timeline that the expert Faerûnian historian will notice is that we’ve expressed all the years in the current Dalereckoning (DR) notation. Different cultures in the Realms have used different calendars, and reconciling them has often caused sages much diffi culty. See the following notes to convert DR dates to some other calendar.

谷地历法Dalereckoning DR:

  这个以人类为中心的历法已经成为表示日期的标准方式。谷地历法确立于日出之年,当时人类第一次被精灵们允许定居于 科曼索Cormanthyr 的空旷地区。它还被称为 自由民历法Freeman’s Reckoning。
This human-centered calendar has become the standard way of expressing dates. Dalereckoning was established in the Year of Sunrise when men were fi rst permitted by elves to settle in the more open regions of Cormanthor. It is also called Freeman’s Reckoning.

科米尔历法Cormyr Reckoning CR:

  此历法开始于科米尔王国在奥博斯卡王朝 Obarskyr Dynasty 的统治下建立之时26 DR。这两个相似但不同的历法在同一地区的应用使得历史学家与贤者们倍感困惑。两种历法日期的转换方式为:DR - 25 = CR 或者 CR + 25 = DR.
This calendar starts at the founding of Cormyr by the Obarskyr Dynasty (26 DR). The use of two close but not identical calendars in the same geographic area causes historians and sages much confusion. To convert between dates you might fi nd in other sources: DR – 25 = CR or CR + 25 = DR.

北地历法Northreckoning NR:

  此历法被应用于 深水城Waterdeep银月联邦the Silver Marches 以及 北地the North 各处。DR - 1032 = NR 或者 NR + 1032 = DR。
The calendar used throughout the city of Waterdeep, the Silver Marches, and the North. DR – 1032 = NR or NR + 1032 = DR.

深水历法Waterdeep Year WY:

  古老的深水城历法,已经不再使用。
Archaic Waterdeep calendar, no longer used.

耐色瑞尔历法Netheril Year NY:

  被失落帝国 耐色瑞尔帝国Netheril 所使用的历法,源自 七镇联盟Alliance of Seventon。DR + 3859 = NY 或者 NY - 3859 = DR。
Calendar used by the lost empire of Netheril, stemming from the Alliance of Seventon. DR + 3859 = NY or NY – 3859 = DR.

受龙历法Shou Calendar:

  受龙Shou Lung 的人民将 福农Nung Fu 的登基标记为帝国历法的开始。DR + 1250 = 翔历法或者翔历法 - 1250 = DR。
The people of Shou Lung mark the ascendancy of Nung Fu as the start of their empire’s calendar. DR + 1250 = Shou Year or Shou Year – 1250 = DR.

倭历法Wa Calendar:

  由位于东部国度的岛国 倭Wa 所使用的历法。DR + 418 = 倭历法 或者 倭历法 - 418 = DR。
Calendar used by the island nation of Wa in the Eastern Realms. DR + 418 = Wa Year or Wa Year – 418 = DR.

穆尔霍兰德历法Mulhorand Calendar MC:

  可以追溯至 斯库德城Skuld 建立之初的古代历法。DR + 2134 = MC 或者 MC - 2134 = DR。
Ancient calendar dating from the founding of Skuld. DR + 2134 = MC or MC – 2134 = DR.

恩瑟历法Untheric Calendar UC:

  起始于 吉尔伽Gilgeam 成为 恩瑟帝国Unther 神王之时。DR + 735 = UC 或 UC - 735 = DR。
Established after the ascendancy of Gilgeam as god-king of Unther. DR + 735 = UC or UC–735 = DR.

阿瑞赛玛利尔历法Aryselmalyr Calendar AC:

  这个古老的历法被阿瑞赛玛利尔的海精灵启用于帝国建立之时。DR + 11004 = AC 或 AC - 11004 = DR。
Archaic calendar used by the undersea elves of Aryselmalyr at the empire’s founding. DR + 11004 = AC or AC – 11004 = DR.

时光之歌历法Timesong Calendar TS:

  此历法制订于 迷斯·南塔Myth Nantar,并被绝大多数 赛洛斯Seros 的海底居民沿用到今日。DR + 70 = TS 或 TS - 70 = TS
Calendar established at Myth Nantar and used today by most undersea inhabitants of Serôs. DR + 70 = TS or TS – 70 = TS

现代历法Present Reckoning PR:

  一个将 动荡之年 作为元年的新历法。DR - 1358 = PR 或者PR + 1358 = DR.
A newer calendar that dates the Time of Troubles as Year 0. DR – 1358 = PR or PR + 1358 = DR.

年表The Roll of Years

  从–700 DR 开始,此后的每一年都附带了来自年表的年号。按照特定规则将独特而恰当的年号赋予每一年,这一惯例很大程度上起源于两位不同时代的先知,疯狂者奥嘉丝拉Augathra the Mad(c.–400 DR)与 先知阿兰多Alaundo the Seer(c.75 DR),不过关于他们的一切全都知之甚少。唯一可以肯定的是,这些年表建立于精灵族知识与预言的基础上,此外两位先知还分别添加了对于未来的预言。某些历史学家认为他们不过是有着学究气息的文字贩子而已,剽窃了精灵们传承积累的知识,并借此而名利双收。其他人视他们为伟大的梦想家,尝试着为未来的数代人提供告诫与安抚。
Each year beginning with –700 DR also includes its name from the Roll of Years. The standardization of each year with an individual, proper name largely derives from two prophets of different eras, Augathra the Mad (c. –400 DR) and Alaundo the Seer (c. 75 DR), about which little is known. What is certain is that they built on a body of elven lore and prophesy, adding their own foretellings of the future. Some historians view them as scholarly hacks, stealing and taking credit for centuries of elf knowledge. Others view them as great visionaries who sought to help future generations with their warnings and reassurances.

  但是,目前关于新年表的传闻正在四处散播,这份所谓的 黑色编年史Black Chronology 是由 失落女士Lady of Loss 及其信徒所编撰的。截至目前为止,关于 阴影年表Shadow Roll 的企图与目的仍旧尚未揭晓。
Only recently has word spread of a new Roll of Years, a Black Chronology fashioned by the Lady of Loss and her faithful. The design and purpose of this Shadow Roll, however, is yet unrevealed.

  在被遗忘国度战役设定中,当前年份为1375 DR,精灵复兴之年Year of Risen Elfkin。
The current year in the FORGOTTEN REALMS campaign setting is 1375 DR, the Year of Risen Elfkin.
