The Complete (Fan Made) New Albion Timeline

17 May
Written by Rachel Davis. A little bit ago, Tymoteusz Chrzanowski sent me a complete New Albion timeline his friend Rachel made. There’s a few problems, namely with Annabel and Jasper’s ages, and while there could be some other debates or, it is in general bloody well done. I’ve been meaning to share it, so here it is:
Here is the timeline for New Albion. Ages are largely arbitrary, although we have certain general impressions of age ( Jasper is betrothed in his early teens, Fay is a young child when Jasper dies, etc. etc. ). Events are much more concrete. Year 0 is the beginning of Dolls. 
 
-300(?): Alice (0), princess of the albino tribe is told to go do the work of the Angels.
-27: Jasper (13) is betrothed 
-22: Jasper (18) and Annabel (18) are at school. Annabel has a crush on Jasper
-20 : Jasper (20) kisses Annabel (20). Annabel expelled within the school year
-19: Annabel (21) loses her parents and inherits the estate
-17: Jasper (23) marries
-10: Fay (0) is born to Jasper (33) and his wife
-1 : Jasper dies (39), leaving his daughter Fay (5) with his wife
0 : Annabel (40) uses her formula to bring Jasper (39/39) back, spends at least a day but probably less than a week with him before smashing him and putting her notes away
2 : Annabel (42) marries. Edgar (0) is born
12: Annabel (52) dies, leaving Edgar (10) with his other parent 
22: Fay (28) and Edgar (20) meet, fall in love, and get together
25: Fay (30) meets Silof (25), falls in love with him, and breaks up with Edgar (23). Edgar finds his mother’s notes and starts his business
26: Edgar (24) is a success with his business, and has Silof (25) ruined. He resurrects Jasper (39/39) and Fay (31) comes back to live with him 
30: Byron (0) is born to Fay (35) and Edgar (29). Alexander (0) is born to the red-haired family who runs the underground
31: Amelia (0) and Charlotte (0) are born
39: The O’Brien parents (25) meet through the newly-formed Voodoopunk movement
41: John O’Brien (0) is born to the O’Brien parents (27). Vivian (0) is born
43: Jacqueline O’Brien (0) is born to the O’Brien parents (29) and her brother John (2)
50: Byron (20) finds the Voodoopunk movement, meets Amelia (19) at some point. Soldier 7285 (0) is born
52: Alice (18) starts taking the sandy drug, working on the ‘Angels’ project’
55: John (14) and Jacqueline (12) lose their parents
56: Byron (26) runs Jasper (39/69) for mayor, along with Amelia (25). Byron also marries Charlotte (25) at this time. Alexander (26) hunts down Alice (22) as she’s completing her work for the Angels, who reveal themselves to be AIs from the year 131, the survivors from Elysium who uploaded themselves instead of being reincarnated
57: Priscilla is born at the beginning of the year. A while afterwards, Jasper (39/70) plays Elysian Nights. Amelia (26) takes her life. The Dolls are burned, but Byron (27) saves him from the fire. Albion is thrown into chaos
58: A military regime is implemented and New Albion becomes a police state
60: The police arrive to ask Byron (29) ‘some questions’ and he never returns, leaving Priscilla (3) and Charlotte (30) alone
61: Thomas (0) is born
62: John O’Brien (22) marries Vivian (21). Jacqueline (20) meets Dorothy (20)
64: John O’Brien (24) and Vivian (23) have Constance (0). Connor (0) is born, a reincarnation of Adrian
65: Amber (0) is born
67: The purges start, and Dorothy (25) is taken and lobotomized. Jackie (25) is devastated
68: Priscilla (11) finds Jasper (39/81) in the secret rooms beneath the house. Priscilla finishes primary school and is pulled out of the education system by Charlotte (38)
72: Vivian (31) is killed in a rebel bomb set off by some people resisting the police state. John (32) turns to drink, leaving Constance (9) mostly alone
73: John (33) is recruited by the Freedom Corps to become the new super weapon, leaving Constance (10) to be raised by Jackie (31)
76: Charlotte (46) is taken to the mental ward, and the house goes to Priscilla (19), who locks herself away with Jasper (39/89) playing cards. Soldier 7285 (26) enlists. Priscilla calls the police and they come, killing both of them. 7285 promises to start the first organized rebel movement in Priscilla’s name
77: 7285 (27) puts truth serum in the Parliament waters, starting open civil war
79: Yasser Latef (0) is born
85: Constance (21) meets Thomas (24) and starts her career as a thief
87: Connor (24) and Amber (21) meet in the Voodoopunk movement and fall in love. Constance (23) attempts to steal the MCG, Thomas (26) reveals himself as a police agent. Jacqueline (44) takes Thomas and Constance down to meet the Voodoopunks, where Thomas is possessed by a spirit. John (46) shows up at Crier’s Boulevard to take back the MCG, but recognizes Constance and turns against the army, including the military special ops unit the Blood Red Dogs, instead. The Voodoopunks use the MCG to broadcast their song to all the policemen, and then the whole city. Constance sings another song, though, that takes control, and everyone wakes up. John and Jackie stand against the army to protect Constance. Jackie is killed, and John dies, too, but after he leaves the city forces defenseless. Rebels overrun the Parliament, then turn against one another, leaving the city in 8 independently run districts. The ranks of the Voodoopunks swell. The ‘Shroud of St. Priscilla’ is found, and St. Harlott (48) becomes an icon of the movement. Under the Voodoopunks, New Albion is united. Arcadia Corp is founded
89: Connor (26) splits with Amber (23) when Amber gives their unborn/newly born child to Arcadia Corp for use in their AI experiments
90: Constance (26) gets the laws changed for the women in the Districts and she and Thomas (27) leave the city
91: Adrian (0) is born to Amber (25)
92: Lee (0) is born to Connor (28)
111: Connor (46) gets the funding pulled from Project Elysium days before it takes off. Lee (19) and Adrian (20) trick him into undoing it, then run away to Elysium together. The creatures attack immediately. Back home, Connor shuts down Arcadia Corp
113: Adrian (22) is the last person sent through the portal in an attempt to contact home. He dies when he hits the portal, and is reincarnated as Connor in year 64. Rachael (0) is born
122: Lee (30) loses an arm to the creatures’ attack
128: Rachael (15) meets the Man (??)
129: Rachael (16) gets pregnant, refuses to have an abortion, and is put in the asylum
131: Rachael (18) escapes from the asylum and meets Connor (66), who gives her the Mascot 3000. Rachael and the Mascot live for a time in the Shopogopolis, then return to Connor, who opens the portal to Elysium for them. Yasser Latef (52) greets them and sends them to meet Lee (39). Everyone except Rachael and the Mascot — who remain in Elysium together — flee using either the MCG, which turns them into AIs like the Mascot, or through the portal, which reincarnates them

    I’m confused, wasn’t Rachel the reincarnation of Adrian? I thought that was why the song reached her and she was chosen to go back to Elysium?

      There are two theories. The author of this list went with theory #2. In theory 2, well actually in both theories, Rachel is tied to elysium as she is offered entrance after each lifetime. She always chooses to go back since she is what is known as a savior soul, a trend begun when she was Alice. (She was not allowed entrance to Elysium after being Alice, however. That only started when she was Priscilla.) Theory 1 is just as plausible however, so you;re not wrong, per se.

      A hint: If there’s something you – and perhaps also Rachel – “can’t understand” perhaps you should change how you’re listening to it.

    This is far more detailed than the timeline I’d put together for my Pathfinder campaign (which is done after 35 sessions; quite fun – thanks again for creating such a cool world and music), but overall things line up give or take a few years. I think the only notable things which are missing are 1) When the city was actually founded… sometime in the range of -200 to -300 range, I reckon, and 2) Several years after the last entry, the AIs sending their message to tribe; and 3) The Miller family.

    Were the names “Charlotte” and “Vivian” already established somewhere? It’s not in the albums, but I thought I read through the various stories and don’t recall seeing it there either. On the topic of names, for some reason I have “Caroline” in my head as the name of the Mascot 3000 when she was a baby, but I don’t think that was ever actually mentioned… I must be imagining things. 😛

    Regardless, thanks for sharing, and thanks to the creator of the timeline for the thoroughness!

    Ah well that cleared some stuff up (though that 3rd album is still pretty tricky to get your head around, specially bcusse it’s so different from the previous 2)

    Say in the song Rachel Returns from the 3rd album when the blood red dogs made a come back (I squeed with excitement I love those guys) where they went by Elysian to attack the survivors? Or were they with the survivors? I figured it was the first since they had the wierd distortion in their voices and the fact they kinda sorta died in the last album (having them come back as mosterous creatures was genius)

    But I can never be too sure with this series
    I’m just happy we got to hear their awesome song again

      A bunch of Blood red Dogs went to Elysium with the Voodoopunks to help them build their heavenly city. They are the reason that there are any survivors. Also, not all the Blood red Dogs died in Dieselpunk. They are not the monsterous creatures. The monstrous creatures of Elysium that vicisiously attack the voodoopunks are a type of Angel. This type of Angel acts as Elysium’s white blood cells, destroying any foreign virus that does not belong there. The VP’s are seen as invaders and treated the way your body would treat a foreign bacteria or virus.

    This is very interesting, though I thought it was stated that Adrian reincarnated to Rachel in the third album? Or is that only a belief the Voodoopunk hold? Would this mean time does not move linearly once you die, allowing you to be reborn into any time period? And, as the author, do you have a preferred theory?

    Wait wasn’t the politician that tricked Rachael’s name Alderman?
    Why is he called The Man here?
    Do I smell subplot?
    Maybe

      Actually an alderman is an elected member of a municipal council.

    Maybe I missed it in AO, but where does The ‘Shroud of St. Priscilla’ is found, and St. Harlott (48) becomes an icon of the movement.’ come from? I don’t recall a Shroud or St. Harlott.
