Cleft of Dimensions Timeline

Relics of the Immortals

The First Age: The Creation of the Cleft


  • The Cleft is created and violent temporal rifts ravage the void. Land masses fill in the space slowly, drawn together by their own inherent energies before finally reunited under the Machina Principia's influence. Most of the first living beings transported to the Cleft die out of lack of sufficient resources to live off in the inhospitable environment, though there are a handful of survivors. Without Mana, all magic and its qualities are lost from the world. The atmosphere fluctuates violently during this time, chaotic and destructive with its many storms and howling winds. Sources of oxygens rise and lower with the unstable atmosphere. A shadow descends from above and rain comes in after it.
  • Zanarkand, the First City. Assumed to have been the first city to fall into the Cleft, situated at the "top of the world". The city and its people are believed to have ultimately failed to survive the birth of the Cleft.


  • The heavy rains come to an end, leaving behind a mess on the lands. Massive mountains have been shaped and eroded into what they are today and the oceans have finally settled. The water cycle begins and continues from here on, providing freshwater systems and expansive seas. Yet, the chaotic weather continues to churn the seas and air still.


  • The Mana Holyland arrives in Shadmire and melds with the planet. The great tree sends its roots sprawling throughout the lands, uniting them all with its strength and bringing balance to the Cleft's natural energies. Beams of light pierce the skies, quelling the weather and taming it into normalcy as they shoot out from the Mana Holyland. Almost at once, the atmosphere settles and the oceans find peace. The sun emerges from its shadows and the moon comes as its companion. The Mana Tree, having merged with the Machina Principia and thereby connecting with the Cleft, bathes the world in mana, once more allowing magic to be used and for life to flourish. Lands, charred by fire and storms and eroded by rain turn fertile and growth begins. The land of Shadmire is doused with magic and from the fungal growth that has soldiered creation until now, the Matangui arise.



  • Iktoa is established.




  • With the development of agriculture and a stable environment, populations begin to grow and small towns develop. Matangui are the first to circumnavigate the world, plotting the known lands with maps and bringing plantlife back to Shadmire to flourish. An agreement is made amongst the many Matangui tribes and many set out to explore the other landmasses - acting as agents of both mana and nature.
  • The Macabre Tombstone appears in the Myrkur Mountains, beginning the cycle of rebirth. It shepherds the dead souls through the underworld and back to the Mana Tree, so they may be reborn.

2nd Age: Age of Discovery

War Amongst the Gods


  • Imbibobot arrives in Truce, offering the wisdom of alcoholism to adventurers. A group of eccentric followers help him to discover his forgotten identity and role: To maintain the seams holding the cleft together.
  • Imbibobot is left behind deep beneath the ground to work this thankless task while his followers attempted to locate more Inventors to help. Dr. Wily is approached by them but refuses any aid, instead revealing a remote control and threatening to detonate a bomb that he left inside Imbibobot while repairing him. After growing weary with anger, Dr. Wily discards the remote control and kicks the group out of his lab, which is kept safe in Kolem's hands.


  • Kyuubey shows up in Truce, granting people's wishes in exchange for their souls. Those people were turned into Wishborn.
  • Witches and Yoma show up around Truce, which adventurers have trouble defeating without the help of the Wishborn.
  • Parasitic yoma invade Wutai, killing off a portion of its population before being dealt with by the Wishborn.

  • Monstro Town was almost destroyed by the Sinistrals, but they were thwarted by GForte and Ambience. Citizens are evacuated by members of the Wishborn.

  • Magnus and his Order of Light fall into the cleft, observing the world from their island and gathering resources.


  • Creatures of the wilderness, with the exception of the undead, begin randomly becoming displaced with other creatures, often winding up in oddball locations where they don't belong. Sunflash keeps an eye on these events during this time.

  • Ambience finds himself at the Festival of Lights and is reunited with Mollianne and Sunflash. He informs them as to where he's been for the last year, citing concern that the Sword of Mana was not returned to the Holyland as it should have been, but that he has no way to return it there himself. Ambience discovers that, though he carries the Sword, he cannot wield it, leading him to believe that his connection with the Mana Tribe has somehow been severed.
  • Shadows, in the forms of those who used to exist and those who still do, begin to show up around the Cleft, first near Faron Woods and then in Truce. Sunflash and Gforte deal with them, respectively, and successful drive them off, retrieving strange jewels from each one in the battles' aftermath.
