Crystal Chronicles World Timeline

This page presents the timeline of the world in the Crystal Chronicles series, as far as it can be determined. Note that all times are mentioned in relation to the game they're mentioned in, and there are hardly any common points between some games where a large amount of time has passed between them. However, from the hints given the chronological order of the games should be correct.

Note that after the events of the single player story, the world is redone. It is not known whether the chronological order of games continues from the single player story or the world seen briefly in the multiplayer section, although there are some indicators such as the color of the moon that they continue from the multiplayer world. Thus, any events starting with the Rise of the Lunites header and ending with the end of Ring of Fates, might or might not have happened in the overall continuity.
