This is a guide to the timeline of events in Tales of Eternia, including how the side materials fit into the story chronology and how they diverge from the game story. Every story-related event is described here, so be careful if you're sensitive to spoilers.
I only have dates for historical events and the year the story begins in-universe. It's unknown how much time elapses from start to end, or how long each event takes.
