The timeline of the game is a rather important aspect of the game. I want to set this during the Scorpion Clan Coup, so this is the earliest of the official timelines that was made. They first published the Clan Wars stuff which happened to be the fall out of the Scorpion Clan Coup but quickly put out the SCC stuff not long after. Unlike many prequels this was just as amazing as the original. We start 1122 or 1123 depending on my thoughts.

The following are the most notable events of the twelfth century:

1111 - Hantei Hochiahime is kidnapped by Bloodspeakers.
1113 - Bayushi Shoju marries Shosuro Kachiko.
1120 - Kitsuki Kaagi disappears.
1122 - The Opium War in Ryoko Owari Toshi.
1124 - The Naga begin to awaken.

1135 - Gift of the Naga given to the Unicorn Clan as they re-enter their slumber.
1144 - Haru's forge is supplied with materials from Scorpion, Mantis, and Unicorn caravans.
1145 - Morito's claim to the former Phoenix Clan lands is validated by Toturi I.
1150 - Beiden Pass is destroyed, and Seikitsu Pass is reopened.
