History of The DruchiiEdit
The time line lists general dates of major events according to the Imperial Calendar. The names of the ages of creation are credited to the Lizardmen from their source book. Whenever the date of an event is unknown, but it is understood to have happened after the given year, it will be listed as a subset of the given year.
Unfortunately, not much is known about the movements of Dark Elves after the Sundering. Because the nature of the Druchii, Is that they come and go in quick raids, and they are not wholly present at most major events.
