Notice Feb 2013 : This is on hiatus because I am busy with the wiki. However, I will continue when I have the time for it. This is an important project for me, so I don't plan to drop it at all.

Gaians are free to (as stated) help out by typing up other events within this thread.


POSTING 1 - April 05, 2011

Hello, my name is Bunai and I work on the Gaiapedia (a Gaia Online wiki). I am in the process of clearing up a lot of articles and organizing them as well as images. While doing this I occasionally attempt to keep up with Gaia's Storyline history and try to find more on Gaia's history such as events and such.

As a side project to occupy myself, I wanted to attempt a In-Universe timeline on Gaia's storyline. This requires looking back on Manga and Events and such and trying to piece things together by a bit of guessing xd

Currently Timeline ver 1 will be posted just so I can mark off the first half and keep it online and see if anyone else would like to contribute.

Questions n Answers

What is the Gaiapedia
-The Gaiapedia is a wiki / fansite about Gaia Online. It was founded by alyssachanpc in February 2, 2006. At some point she left the wiki and Gaia Online (reasons unknown), so other admins of the wiki took over to maintain it with the occasionally contributors. At some point those admins lost interest with Gaia Online and the wiki was left without an admin.

-In October 2009 I did some minor editing and realized the wiki had no one to look out for it, I made the decision to adopt it.

How do you know Johnny K. Gambino was born May 15, 1962?
-Truth is, I don't. This date came from a contributor on the wiki, when I asked where they got the date from they stated it was given at a convention when Gaia Online was present.

How do you know Gino Gambino was born May 13, 1988?
-As stated above, more contributors and the source being a convention.

What is with the event titles between the lines "=="?
-Titles to mark the major event changes by dividing them into sections, to let people know that something happened before 2003, which is the year Gaia started. I am still playing with the titles so they are subjected to change at some point.

What is with the title entries marked "Unknown"?
-Title entries marked "Unknown" will be a marker for not knowing the exact date of the event.

Where will you be getting this information to build the Timeline?
-As stated in the introduction, I will be gathering the information by looking through Gaia Storyline Manga / Mini-Comics / Gaia Events / Items. And my own time spent on Gaia, as I was here when the first storyline manga was created.

-Much of the information for Timeline ver 1 came from the "The Rise of Gambino" manga. While the Bucho and Meredith info came from the Trial of Ian, which happened in 2006.

What type of help are you requesting?
-I mostly want Gaians who are into the storyline to do a read over and see if they feel the event placement seems plausible before I publish it on the wiki. Do note that this is an unofficial timeline created by a fan(s) of Gaia Online and its storyline. Though I hope to get it relatively accurate based the time spent here.

-At any point you can take timeline ver 1 and build upon it.


Rules

Please do not...
-quote the entire Timeline(s) to make a simple comment, if you want to point something out please copy and paste a piece to discuss.
-criticize the storyline, as this is not the place for it. This thread is to discuss how to build up the timeline based on the storyline. If you want to freely talk about the storyline then please head over to the Gaia Community Discussion forum.

Timeline ver 1


==The Before Era==

#36 Demonbusters: Fable Fury!
Long ago, the world was savage.

All of Gaia's creatures and ancient civilizations were subject to whims of godlike beings. Some were small and harmless. Others were powerful beyond imagination.

The two demigods
Two demigods agreed to use their power to help improve the Gaia world with subtle influence. They studied the creatures and worked together, each balancing the other.

One day they stumble upon a lowly earthworm. Each had their own idea of how to improve the creature.

The older of the two, suggested giving the creature many legs for running, and a strong shell. However, the stronger of the two, suggested giving the creature sharp teeth and ripping claws. Each believed their solution was best, and argued over it.

The two demigods argue
The two demigods cast their spells upon one another but found their actions to be equal. At a stalemate, they cast the last spell on the humble worm. Their magics clashed, and instead of affecting the worm, ricocheted back on them.

With that it seemed their dispute was ended. The older, having used his magic defensively found himself locked in a strong shell. The strong, having cast her spell in aggression found herself imprisoned in darkness.

Lanzer confirmed in an AtA last year that Gino and Johnny have the same birthday - the 15th. And that Johnny turned 47 on that birthday.

Yup ^_^ The thread is open for creating timelines of your own or just contributing to whatever is currently posted. Perhaps I should alter the intro post a bit. I only ask not to quote the timeline in its entirety for page scrolling sake.

And thank you for the information. Though I hope its their exact dates so I can really try to match things up. I am unsure if Lanzer knows of the Gambino backstory, I would assume it would be someone like VO or L0cke that would know, as they (and other artists) wrote much of the storyline.

Yeah, I know. They've changed their story a lot since 2004. It's like there's no canon. @___@

Good luck with this. It would be nice to have such a resource. =3

Also, thanks for updating Gaiapedia. It's one of the main linkbacks to the GCW. 3nodding

Thank you and you're welcome. The GCW really helped when it came to creating the manga / comic list and tracking down the release dates. lol didn't even realize you had returned.

I'll try to update the wiki when I can, though many things are still disorganized, it is a hobby for me. ^_^

I never truly left. Work just got in the way. Delirious was taking care of the GCW when I joined the military, but now she can't keep up with it either and so if we can't find someone else to update, the website's going to die.

I mean, I'll keep it online because I like it. But it won't get updated. =<

If I had the time, I'd update it myself. Next weekend I MIGHT be able to get the GCW a little caught up, but I doubt it...

Hey stranger. ^_^

I'm not sure what my knowledge of the robots could be used for in this timeline, but I might try and throw some things together for you. <3

Anything established within the Gaia universe would be a part of the timeline ^_^
