Thanks to Djudge for tweaking and additions! All RPGers must read this all the way through, or risk making an error (which takes away points) in your chapters or bios.

??? P.N - The Hollows "Brainfang", "Emptybones", and "White Corona" begin to amass together all Hollows without alerting the Onmitsu Kidou.

1854 P.N. - Shinkou Masaru graduates to the 12th Division under Capt. Suikuske Oowanryuu.

1573 P.N - Seiji Yasuo enrolls in the Old Shinigami Academy and enters the 12th Division only two years later.

1499 P.N. - An infamous series of slayings in which Rukongai peasants are killed and found with a hole in their forehead begin and end a decade later.

1493 P.N. - Seiji finally meets Masaru and become friends.

1214 P.N.. - Commander Ro-hanken finds Captain of the 6th Gorudo Mahara dead. Nobody can determine the cause of death, but an odd hole has been drilled into the side of Mahara's head, and the skull cavity is empty. Only a few recall the slayings in Rukongai, but dismiss the memory since the victim was a Captain and therefore likely unrelated.

1070 P.N. - For the first time in the recorded history of Soul Society, a Hollow breaks the Bloodstone walls of Seireitei. It is primitive, but the shock of a Hollow attacking from within is enough to kill several Shinigami. Due to the Hollow's unintelligence, it is deemed a fluke.

987 P.N - An unheard of Shinigami who simply goes by the name of "Karappo Kotsu" graduates from the Academy and rises through ranks in record time. He kills Captain Suikuske Oowanryuu of the 12th Division in a duel, taking his rank. Several, including Masaru and Seiji, are disgruntled with Kotsu's attitude.

862 P.N. - The second time a Hollow breaks through into Seireitei. The matter is investigated, but to no avail. It is noted that only Captains know of a way through the Bloodstone.

860 P.N. - Captain of the 4th, Inoue Taka, is murdered. The prime suspect is Karappo Kotsu, but not enough evidence is drawn into convict him, despite many witnessed conversations between him and Takana that were heated. Many Shinigami will remark for years the stunned expression on Takana's corpse.

854 P.N. - Karappo Kotsu's Vice-Captain, Mikagami Gawa is killed. All evidence points to Kotsu. However, the day before the verdict, a member of the Central 46 named Byakuya Koukan gives a 1 minute long speech. This single speech convinces the remaning members to let Kotsu go free. Later, members report not hearing a speech but seeing a white light.

686 P.N. - Masaru becomes Vice-Captain to Kotsu, and immediately secludes himself, suspicious of his superior.

685 P.N. - Seiji Yasuo investigates the Bloodstone walls around Seireitei using Research Insitutute equipment. He finds that sword markings are numerous in the rocks.

680 P.N. - Shinkou Masaru climbs out of his self-imposed ostracism and approaches the one person he deems that he can trust, Seiji Yasuo. Masaru quickly digresses his speculation of a possible conspiracy within the walls of Seireitei centuries in the making. Knowing that against such powerful adversaries, they would be crushed in any attempt to reveal the conspiracy, the two leave the Gotei 13, surprising many officers who had felt such promise in them both. They then leave Seireitei and move into the outskirts of Rukongai and eventually, the physical world, keeping an eye out for the worst, and begin to train towards the ultimate weapon: Ban Kai.

540 P.N. - Karappo Kotsu reveals seemingly ****ing evidence of Shinkou and Seiji's treason in the murders of Suikuske Owanryuu, Gorudo Mahara, Inoue Taka, and Mikagami Gawa with the help of Byakuya Koukan. The Shinigami are then ordered to full alert and lockdown status for the next decade and send elements of the Gotei 13 out to kill the two "traitors" on sight. Over the next decade, dozens of Shinigami in the Gotei 13 sent out to eliminate Shinkou and Seiji are cut down again and again by unnaturally large hordes of Hollows.

530 P.N. - The worst Hollow invasion occurs and the historians note this as the beginning of the Great Hollow War. Scores of Hollows break through dissolved Bloodstone into Seireitei, killing hundreds of Shinigami. Two Captains, Fyourin Marisen of the 7th and Zan Liufei of the 2nd, are killed in combat. No successors are decided. The Captain of the 13th, Mitori Yanagawa begins an investigation to find out how Hollows are breaking through.

524 P.N. - After 6 years of investigation, Miroti realizes the entire matter began with Captain Gorudo's death. He goes back to investigate the dusty report and realizes the hole through in the skull might've been used by a Hollow to get the secret to breaching the wall of Seireitei. He notifies the entire Gotei 13 of this, but despite pleading for new means of defense, the Central 46 quietly refuses to make changes. It is said that one man once again held sway over the rest's decisions. Meanwhile massive Hollow attacks dating from the assault on Seireitei take place on Earth; the Gotei 13 are hard-pressed to maintain the balance of souls.

510 P.N. - Shinkou Masaru and Yasuo achieve Ban Kai and continue training by anonymously aiding Shinigami and Quincy fight off Hollows in both the spiritual and physical realm. They wait for the instant that Kotsu will make his move.

436 P.N. - Captain of the 9th, Shorin Hyourin is found dead, with Kotsu's "zanpakutou" in his heart. Commander Ro-hanken attempts to arrest Kotsu, only for Kotsu to transform before him and Captain Miroti's eyes into a Hollow. Kotsu reveals himself as the Hollow "Emptybones", and fights Commander Ro-hanken and Captain Miroti. Miroti is killed, and Ro-hanken severely injured before fending off Kotsu, who retreats. Ro-hanken locks into a coma, unable to inform others of what has happened.

435 P.N. - The largest section of fighting in the Great Hollow War begins. Emptybones and Brainfang, who is the Hollow that dug the secret of Seireitei out of Captain Gorudor's brain, lead the assault. The battling lasts non-stop, and both sides constantly lower in number. However, the Hollows continue to receive a steady supply of warriors while the Shinigami run lower and lower. Masaru goes to aid the forces on Earth, while Seihi holds ground in Soul Society.

434 P.N. - Commander Ro-hanken, weakly awakened, makes way to the Central 46 to force them at the tip of his sword to allow the Shinigami to move out of Seireitei. He finds them all dead, except for one: Byakuya Koukan, who shows his true form as the Hollow "White Corona". In his weakened state, Ro-hanken is no match for the strong Hollow and is killed. Abandoment of Seireitei. The Shinigami flee into Rukongai while the Hollows terrorize all of Soul Society. Seiji's reappearance during the Shinigami exodus and his assistance with their retreat earn him the greatest gratitude any one Shinigami can receive.

429 P.N. - Rukongai citizens join the resistance under Seiji.

424 P.N. - Seiji informs Masaru with new intelligence concerning the Maskless Hollows leading their enemies. Coupling this intelligence with elements of the remaining Keigun, Masaru finds out that the Hollow Brainfang is the primary commander for the invasion of the earthly realm. A confrontation is provoked, and Masaru succeeds in destroying the Maskless Hollow, thus ending the danger to human souls, leaving Masaru free to return to Soul Society.

423 P.N. - The Quincy arrive in Soul Society. Over a third of Soul Society is back in Shinigami hands thanks to Seiji.

410 P.N. - Emptybones captures various resistance leaders and prepares to feat on them. Meanwhile, White Corona holds Seiji's rescue party to a standstill. Just as the execution begins, Masaru reveals himself, having snuck through in the guise of a Rukongai citizen, driving Emptybones away. Sensing his comrade's defeat, the Maskless Hollow White Corona is distracted while fighting with Seiji Yasuo and is annihilated by his Ban Kai.

405 P.N. - Without a leader to herd their forces, the remaining Hollows are annihilated by joint Shinigami and Quincy forces. Masaru and Seiji organize the survivors. For his incredible planning and execution, Masaru is named as Ro-hanken's successor. Then, for his bravery and committment to the people of Rukongai, Seiji is named the new Chief as Rukongai.

215 P.N. - After much hunting, Masaru and Seiji finally locate the retreating Emptybones. A battle ensues and Seiji's Zanpaku-related condition severely hampers his effectiveness. Masaru reveals his Ban Kai, and bolstered by Seiji's best Demon Arts, they take down the final known Maskless Hollow. The Great Hollow War ends.

214 P.N. - Rukongai begins to rebuild and Quincy leave Soul Society.

200 P.N. - Seireitei begins to be rebuilt. New Gotei 13 and New Central 46 are created, Masaru and Yasuo respectively the leaders.

109 P.N. - Yasuo finally completely fills the new Central 46.

55 P.N. - Seireitei is nearly rebuilt, and construction on the new Academy is begun by Masaru.

5 P.N. - The Spirit Academy takes in its first students.

1 N. - The current year. The first class of the Academy graduates, and begins their march through the ranks!

Heh, actually it got posted earlier in the Volumes section where all the literature is stored. Then again it's good to have it in two places I guess.

EDIT: Please note that this is a truncated version that was compiled from Masaru's point of view. The "Memoirs" thread I posted is from Seiji's memories. There are a few discrepancies in timing, but the overall events are the same.

Okay.... So you really stretched the crap out of the timeframe, didn't you? Am I going to have to rewrite Shigure's character because he's only originally 300 years old? He was growing up during the war's initiation, and at the height his friend Botan was killed as after being promoted to a captain. I had him planned for the previous timeline in that it was 15 years ago that Botan was killed (because the timeframe was smaller, but now it's quite dragged out), but now I'll have to stretch that out to.... 400 or so years? But then that would negate all reason, unless I have Shigure be around 1000 or so years old, but then I never planned him to be that old. Uwaaaa @_@

I'm a tad bit confused with these renditions.

I think that refers to the starting of Academy rebuilding process.. But Drag is kinda right, maybe a year on when the Academy actually opens its doors for new students.

I edited in a better academy start time.

Rashinban - So you don't want Shigure to be older than 600 years old? Cuz that's around the initiation and where you say you wanted Botan to die at. I could change all the numbers, but I think it makes more sense that in place as large as Soul Society the time span would be around this long.

While I think the spread of the numbers is quite drastic even for Soul Society, I won't mind altering Shigure's age, but seeing as how my math is no good, this new timeline might take some getting used to while I fiddle with a few things. I'm going to have to go back and change a couple numbers in the first chapter I'm writing and try to approach it slightly differently. Things feel like they're really chaotic and quite messy right now, so I'm going to have to sort some things out before I get back to writing the chapter.

Also, I can't quite get an accurate pinpoit at where Botan would have died. In your opinion, where in the timeline would this fit in? just so I have an exact idea.
