Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH:The Old Republic: Dates

Here we go again. The time has come when we require a timeline update and probably a fancy dating template. This discussion is meant to establish the events of Update 5.10 Jedi Under Siege (Invasion of Ossus) and 6.0 Onslaught (Third Galactic War) into the Galactic calendar.

Well this is my reasoning. Let me know what your input is. Winterz (talk) 16:15, October 29, 2019 (UTC)


  • This all looks good, thanks for getting it together. I had thought we were now at 3629 BBY because the old dating ssystem assumed months passed between KOTFE's base content and the later chapters, putting the end at 3631 BBY and KOTET at 3630 BBY, but this makes more sense.

  • I have been meaning to ask where people have been getting the 3643 BBY indication from. Looking at the opening pages of Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia, that book states we begin in 3640 BBY. Granted, a couple pages later it specifies that year as the renewed war starting, but it feels a bit contradictory. I'm assuming people have been building the timeline backwards from a tweet by Drew Karpyshyn saying that The Old Republic: Annihilation takes place in 3640 BBY, though his tweet doesn't help matters when he says Theron Shan is 30 in that book, when he's at best 26. So I guess what the Encyclopedia means to say is that SWTOR's vanilla endgame is in 3640 BBY? Wouldn't be right either, if the Battle of Ilum is supposed to take place the same year as all the class stories' 3rd chapter. --BTD (talk) 12:30, January 26, 2020 (UTC)
    • I believe that stemmed from an old comment on from one of the developers that said the game took place "a decade" after the Treaty of Coruscant. Imperators II(Talk) 20:36, January 26, 2020 (UTC)
    • See here: Template:TOR dates. Winterz (talk) 20:47, January 26, 2020 (UTC)
      • I've seen that template, but it doesn't exactly state what information there is to indicate the events taking place during these years. I'd like to actually see some form of quote. --BTD (talk) 18:24, January 28, 2020 (UTC)
        • I don't have that "a decade after" comment right now but another way to get there is with the companions' age. Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia establishes Tharan Cedrax's birth year in 3672 BBY whilst TOR's HoloNet puts his age at 29 in-game, setting the Jedi Consular's Chapter I in 3643 BBY.
