This article should not be confused with the Mordavia History of Events: A Time Line published in the official Quest for Glory: Shadows of Darkness Hintbook. Nor should it be confused with the Tetralogy timeline based on the Tetralogy concept.

The Quest for Glory Timeline includes the official references to dates from the games, manuals and hintbooks; including QFG1, QFG2, QFG3, QFG4, QFG5, the Mordavia History of Events: A Time Line and Who's Who in Mordavia from the Shadows of Darkness Hintbook, as well as Quest for Glory: The Authorized Strategy Guide. The Mordavia History of Events implies that a few years passed between the time that Ad Avis died and the Hero was brought to Mordavia. Note there are a few inconsistencies between certain dates listed between the various sources, so this timeline is not perfect (see Conflicting/Alternate dates for further information).

Conflicting/Alternate datesEdit

This is the list conflicting dates for events found within the games or other material.

Between decades ago (sometime before -15 BQFG4) and/or -5/-4 BQFG4
Sometime before Anna's death, she learned of a stranger, the 'Dark Master', moving into the castle from other towns people.[42] Soon after she heads outside of town to find materials for Dr. Cranium and is killed. Dr. Cranium says she died "15 years ago". Olga states that it has been years since Anna disappeared (it occured before the Stovich's were married)[43].
Yet other characters and information indicates that Katrina (and other strangers) moved into Castle Borgov 4-5 years before QFG4.[44] There is also implication that Olga and Boris were married over four years before.
However, according to QFG5, it is said that Katrina had been living in Mordavia for decades, ruling over the land[45]. According to the Mordavia History of Events she moved into Mordavia and took over the castle about the same time.[46] This would imply that Katrina moved into the castle decades ago, and had been traveling in and out of the castle over the years. Sometime before Anna's death townspeople discussed rumors of 'the Dark Master' moving into the castle and Vampires, but the talk gradually faded. Five years ago she apparently returned to the castle. Apparently rumors that "strangers" (plural) had moved into the castle began four years ago, implying that several of townsfolk hadn't noticed that Katrina had moved in long before that. This implies that "strangers" that the townsfolk were referring to were actually Ad Avis or the Goons who had moved into the castle later.
-19 BQFG4 or 16 BQFG4
Two dates are given concerning the timeframe of Rakeesh's abdication and Rajah's rise to the throne.
Between -15 BQFG4 and "several years" BQFG4
Dr. Cranium claims to have been living in Mordavia at least 15 years before QFG4. According to Yuri Makarov, Dr. Cranium moved into Mordavia several years before the swamp closed off the pass (as noted below it seems the pass was blocked off various points in time).
Between -14 BQFG4 or -13 BQFG4
At the age of nine (or was she eight), Elsa is turned down for training by the Weapon Master for being female[47] (or was it prior to -14 BQFG4).
Wolfgang Abentuer implies that Elsa was eight years old when she kidnapped by Baba Yaga[48], Yorick claims at the age of nine, Elsa was still living at the palace. According to Karl, at the time of QFG1, she was about eighteen[49]. All three characters as well as Stefan von Spielburg agree that she was kidnapped "ten years ago".
Before -4 QFG4, between -4/-3 QFG4, between -3/-2 BQFG4 and after -2 BQFG4.
The rainstorms in Mordavia begins. Several characters state that the rains began not long after the "strangers" moved into Castle Borgov (or at least when those characters started noticing the "strangers"). Dahab Khalis said the pass to Mordavia was blocked or restricted as far back as QFG3 (-4 BFG4). Boris Stovich said it rained before he left his wife (-3 BQFG4). Magda, The Fortune Teller, said it rained after they moved back into the valley, and traded with the Gatekeeper (Boris) a few times (after -3 BQFG4). Tanya states that the rains started before she was kidnapped (-2 BQG4) and the Mordavia History of Events places the rains began after she was kidnapped. Dr. Cranium states the rains started "a few years before", and he made a trip to Spielburg a few months back, and that he hasn't received a shipment "this year" (implying that Mordavia was completely closed off within 0 BQFG4). Travel across the swamp was probably limited to travel by boat; according to Dmitri Ivanov and the Gypsies, wagons and individual travel had become impossible. Although Dmitri and Olga does imply that a few adventurers/visitors have gotten through occasionaly (Punny Bones would be a good example). However, Elyssa seems to imply that boat travel is treacherous (at least on her lake). Each of these details would place the rain storms before -4 BQFG4, between -4 BQFG4 and -3 BQFG4, between -3 BQFG4 and -2 BQFG4, and after -2 BQFG4.
Since most characters agree that it had been raining between a "few years" to "many years", the rains had to have began at least two years ago (if not more). It seems that it has rained intermittently with breaks at times allowing people into the valley (but not out). This would mean it rained before Boris became Gatekeeper, before the Gypsies entered the valley and before Tanya was kidnapped, and then again after.
The start of the rains could be implied to take place even as far back as -15 BQFG4/-15 BQFG; Anna mentions having learned of the "stranger" (Dark Master) moving into Castle Borgov before she died. According to Dr. Cranium she died "15 years" before. As mentioned by Katrina (Dark Master) in QFG5 she had been in Mordavia for decades. However, that would not fit with Boris account, the Gypsy's account or Tanya's account nor the Mordavia History of Events.
-4 BQFG4 or 0 QFG4
The Mordavia History of Events places the events of QFG 1-3 before Boris Stovich became the gatekeeper of Castle Borgov, and before Tanya's kidnapping. According to Boris in QFG4, he began work "years ago, or several years ago", and that he received the job the same day he walked out on Olga. Olga Stovich is more specific and states that he disappeared three years ago. Several characters mention noticing, "strangers" moving into the castle several years ago, with Olga specifically stating it occured "four years ago" (there are a number of strangers living in the castle including Katrina, Ad Avis, the Daughter (Tanya), and the Goon Guards). This would place the events of QFG1 and QFG2 about four years before QFG4 (Ad Avis was the newest stranger to move into the castle). It is implied that Ad Avis moved into the castle a long time ago[50]. It should be noted that Mordavia History of Events places Ad Avis move to the castle before Tanya's kidnapping (-2 QFG4), although Tanya implies that he was brought to the castle while she was living there. Perhaps he was out on an errand for Katrina and returned after Tanya was brought to the castle.
In addition, the event of Katrina and Ad Avis casting Entrapment and Teleport spells to bring the Hero to Mordavia is set after Tanya's kidnapping in the 'Mordavia History of Events'. According to QFG 3 the start of that game began three months after QFG2. This would imply that either that the Hero was in Tarna for about three years (though ingame time implies it to have been only a few weeks to a month at the most), or that it was a slow spell that took three years to bring the Hero to Mordavia, or that some kind of time warping occured bringing the hero from the past to the future instantaneously (I.E. the Hero being brought to Mordavia across space and time). Coincidently the spell was cast near/at the same time Erasmus and Fenris were apparently trying to bring the Hero to Silmaria causing much of his clothing and gear to end up in Silmaria[51]
Other QFG4 references imply that the Quest for Glory 1 occured earlier in the same year; that an Antwerp explosion was caused by the Hero in the Spring, that Dr. Cranium travelled there to collect Antwerp samples in the summer, and came back to work on experiments in the Autumn.[52] However, this doesn't seem to fit with references made by various townfolk to the "strangers" or the Mordavia History of Events account.
Between many and -1 year ago.

The Dahab Khalis left Raseir for Tarna when Ad Avis took over, he states this occured many years ago when he was apparently much younger.[53] In QFG2 this was said to be about a year before QFG2.

NotesEdit

  • The Authorized guide puts the events of QFG1 over the course of about 9 days (in both the novel and the hintbook section).
  • The amount of time the hero travelled between Spielburg to Shapeir on the magic carpet is unclear. The Authorized guide suggests it was a long trip (took at least several days). It also mentions that several days had passed between the moment they first entered Shapeir and "Day 1" in the game in which they set up the Katta's Tail Inn.
  • The Authorized guide places events of QFG2 over about 29 days.
  • The Authorized guide puts the events of QFG3 over the course of about 24 days in both the novel and the hintbook section.
  • The novel for QFG4 places the events over the course of about 11 days.
  • Tarna is at least 200 years old[54].
  • The novelization takes the liberty of letting Devon dicovering the Leopardman prisoner on day ten, for the sake of the flow of the story. In hte game the different characters actually encounter the prisoner at different stages of the game. The prisoner is captured around the 14th day for the fighter/paladin, the 10th day for the thief, and the 11th day for the magic user.[55]

I do not think anyone in Mordavia was actually killed by a Vampire, so gradually the talk faded.", "I do not think anyone even saw the stranger. We knew him only as 'the Dark Master.' It is an ominous title."
  43. Old Nikolai has been crazy for years...It's been years since Anna's been gone, before I even was married...Boris and I used to double-date with them...
  44. QFG4 hintbook, Who's Who in Mordavia, pg 30: "She moved into Castle Borgov in Mordavia five years ago because she heard rumors of the Cult of the Dark One, Olga Stovich (QFG4): "The castle north of town was abandoned for many years. Then some strangers moved in four years ago."
  45. "Mordavia was my home for decades. I considered myself to be liege lord there. I had not intended to harm the people there. I just did not realize that my summoning of the Dark One would destroy Mordavia.
  46. "Years later, the Dark Master enters Mordavia, drawn by the lure of the dark magic and rumors of Avoozl. She takes over Castle Borgov."
  47. Yorick (QFG1VGA):"She came to me in tears. After all, she was only nine at the time."
  48. Wolfgang Abenteur (QFG1VGA): "Elsa was a beautiful eight year old child with blond hair and sky blue eyes. She was her Father the Baron's joy. Ten years ago, she was carried off by something which flew over the wall and away with her.
  49. Karl (QFG1VGA): "Elsa von Spielburg would be about eighteen now."
  50. Ad Avis (QFG4): "It's been ages since we last met.", Katrina (QFG4): "I do believe you are jealous. Is that because this Hero stopped you from summoning Iblis so long ago?"
  51. Fenris: "Just make sure you use the right spell right to Teleport him. The last time you tried this, you brought the clothes, and left the person behind."
  52. "Watch Out! Sharp objects and Antwerps are a BAD combination (as you learned back in Spielburg).", You tell Dr. Cranium about your first adventures in Spielburg Valley. He seems vaguely interested in your tales of the Baron and his children, but his eyes positively light up when you mention the Antwerp. Ahh, so you are the Spielburg Hero. I went there on an Antwerp-gathering expedition a few months ago. The people are still talking about your adventures.", "I spent some time in Spielburg last Summer. Everyone kept talking about some Hero who did some noble deeds there. There seemed to be quite an infestation of baby Antwerps there for some reason. I took advantage of the opportunity to capture a number of them in very blunt cages for my experiments. The Baron did not even charge me very much for them! Antwerps are a truly fascinating species. They reproduce by splitting into a number of tiny Antwerps, each with their own genetic code. They cannot split voluntarily, however; they only reproduce when cut or stabbed." "My test Antwerps came from Spielburg Valley, where there was an Antwerp population explosion last Spring."
  53. Money Changer: "My family and I moved here many years ago from Raseir.","I was once the money changer of Raseir, but when Ad Avis took over, I moved with my family to Tarna.", "I left Raseir to get away from such violence. I am too old to leave Tarna now."
  54. "Narrator (QFG3): You see a an incredible selection of commemorative plates from the bicentennial of Tarna, all chipped."
  55. QFG:TAG, 234
