It is largely based on the "Drenai Timeline" originally published on the fansite Wolfshead, which was presented to and approved by David Gemmell. Thus, some events which do not appear in any of the books are also included.
As there is no indication in the books as to what initial event the Drenai calendar is based on, dates before year 0 are simply represented with negative figures.
