The event was revealed under highly suspicious circumstances.
There's at least a 50% chance the entry is completely
? The event occurred approximately in this interval.
?? A pretty wild guess as to when this event took place.
The new Doctor (Paul Mcgann) and the new Master
was on the planet Skaro that my old enemy the Master was finally put on
trial. They say he listened calmly as his list of evil was read
and sentence passed. Then he made his last, and I thought
somewhat curious, request. He demanded that I, the Doctor, a
rival Time Lord, should take his remains back to our home planet,
Gallifrey. It was a request they should never have granted."
(about 2.5 years before Vampire Science / Local
Doctor Who: The Enemy Within: The Master is put on trial by the Daleks and exterminated. The Doctor travels to the fake Skaro created by the Daleks and collects the remains. The Master steals his 16th body but a human body doesn't last long when trying to hold a Time Lord. The Eye of Harmony aboard the Doctor's TARDIS is opened, and both Grace and Chang Lee momentarly gaze into the Heart of the TARDIS. This would explain how both Chang Lee and Grace can instinctively operate the TARDIS: They were both granted insights by the TARDIS herself (in Chang's case it was a retro-temporal effect). The Doctor allows the Master to be sucked into the Eye of Harmony, knowing that he will become the god of the empty universe of anti-matter he will find there. The Master is consumed by the TARDIS and lives within it's singularity with absolute power of that universe. He will eventually learn how to control the TARDIS to some degree. The Eye also revives the dead humans Change Lee and Grace Holloway (making them immortal fixed points in time like Jack Harkness). Grace is one of the few humans whose future he can't see. The Doctor claims to have never seen what is beyond death like they have. The robes the Master wears at the end could well have been the Doctor's robes from when he stole the TARDIS. The Eye of Harmony being open leaves a temporal cicatrix scar on Earth. The Eye being opened on the Earth in 1999 AD re-triggered the Time War. This could be tied in with the elimination of Homo Imago from evolving at that time. Some force or entity keeps ensuring that the Last Great Time War happens. The Time Lords end up naming this force the Catalyst. Some speculate that the Catalyst was Rassilon, or the Eternal known as Death, or Matrix, but nobody really knows. The Catalyst arranged for the TARDIS’ Eye of Harmony to be opened on the Earth in San Francisco in 1999 to help advance this plan.
The Doctor regenerates for the seventh time. The Doctor makes a deal with Life and becomes Life's Champion during the regeneration. The Doctor’s body ‘chose’ to use those morphic fields to make him half human because his body was full of human medicines that were killing him. They had to find a form that could survive the chemicals, and activating the Human DNA would work. While previous incarnations of the Doctor weren't, physiologically speaking, half human, this incarnation has human retina patterns and some human DNA. The Time Lords believe that the Doctor has become 'retroactively' human, and the Doctor believes that long term exposure to human morphic fields is what brought out the 8th Doctor’s human traits. This incarnation of the Doctor is also vulnerable to the human condition of "romantic love" and tends to be vary frank about his origins. The regeneration that causes his molecules to be shaken up so much that deeply buried aspects of his character are brought to the surface. He experiances memories of his home and family that hadn't surfaced for centuries. The Doctor begins to remember being born traditionally and that his mother was a human. He cannot reconcile his memories of being loomed with his memories of having parents but he believes them anyway.
He doesn't need spectacles to read and thinks that his new body heals faster then his previous incarnation. He has a precognative abbility to see alternate futures. These glimpses of possible future are probably caused by the numerous time spurs that would form during the coming Time War. Not only does he beleive that his previous selves committed heinous offences against fashion, he also feels that his 7th incarnation was obsessed with spending every moment working towards impossible goals. He is glad to be free of his 7th incarnations 'ends justify the means' master-plan mentality. He feels that's why that version of himself kept ending up alone. Believing that he has averted the Time War, the Doctor now feels that he can start over with a new life and enjoy his work He secretly loves the thrill of risking his life to save others. He will spend much of his life running. He makes a point of not travelling alone so that he won't forget the value of the individual. He's not very good at hand-to-hand combat. The reign of Edward the Confessor is one of his favorite points in history. He will often visit the Tantalus Eye because of its breathaking beauty. He loves dinosaurs, spiders and cats. He likes jellybabies (particularly red ones). Sometimes he likes his tea with 6 sugars, other times with no sugar. He rarely remembers his dreams. The Doctor believes that the forces of Time are impersonal and unthinking, but he prays daily to his gods. He is not fond of heigths, or eating meat, but will put up with fast food cheeseburgers. He hates people who write in books. It is possible that that the half-human part of his biology is the the reason that this incarnation of the Doctor keeps losing his memory. Maybe it can’t hold all the experience of a Gallifreyan Time Lord.
A side effect of the Last Time War (possibly the existence of the Nine Gallifreys) makes it very difficult to research what events the 8th Doctor actually experienced
1009.5-1012 The BBC novels produced in 1997 occur in this range.
1009.76 (right after the TVM / Sam is 17)
The Eight Doctors (from the Doctor's POV): The Doctor makes a deliberate choice to take Samantha Jones as a companion despite the fact that it changes History. The Doctor may be a living equation or function of the Universe. His unconscious probalby has slight effects on the biodata everyone around him. Eventually the Doctor's biodata will have modifications that alow it to bend the timelines. Its possible that his own unconscious reaches out into the vortex and alters history to create a companion who would make him feel complete. This companion could be Samantha Jones.
The Doctor stops being a vegetarian, but tries to avoid eating anything with a central nervous system. He rarely eats meat.
Despite his new "human" emotions the Doctor doesn’t start a romantic relationship with anyone because he doesn’t believe they should have to put up with his problems. (I.M. Foreman is an exception to this restriction.)
The Doctor leaves Sam for about 1 year.

War of the Daleks: The Doctor thinks he has finished tricking the Dalek Empire into tangling their timeline so bad that their history collapses under the weight of the Paradoxes. Unfortunately the Daleks have actually managed to escape this and will eventually become the enemy that will be responsible for Last Great Time War in Heaven. The Dalek Prime uses Davros as his puppet emperor in part of his plot to fool the Emperor.

Alien Bodies(The Doctor): Due to his renegade nature the Doctor accidentally blunders past the time blockades of the Time War in Heaven and discovers a Time Lord named Qixotl auctioning off the Doctor's corpse. Qixotl is also known as Drax but the Doctor doesn't recognize him at the time. The Doctor destroys his corpse.
The 8th Doctor eventually realizes that his pre-cog powers are actually glimpses into alternate time spurs created by the coming Time War.
The Doctor builds a Mark 9 Sonic Screwdriver.
1012.5-1017 The BBC novels produced in 1998 occur in this range.
traveling with Sam)
The People's Temple: The 8th Doctor and Sam observer some of the building of Stonehenge but fail to notice the Monk who uses an anti-gravitational lift to help the Britons build Stonehenge. Given that this is also where Tannis chooses to attack Earth in DCTT is it possible that something of great significance to the Time Lords exists at Stonehenge? Possibly the Gravity Control Unit?

Seeing Eye Part 1: INC discovers a Gallifreyan Mind Probe (from Savar's TARDIS) and uses its retina based technology to create a computer systems composed of the minds of INC's employees called IXNet.
after Romana becomes President / 4 years after Lungbarrow /
before Ancestor Cell / 2013 AD?)
The Daleks invade Gallifrey but are defeated.
Scematic of the Slaughter House
(right after the Dalek invasion)
The High Council refuses to have a permanent, fully trained, fighting force guarding the Panoptican. Romana reactivates the Slaughterhouse. The Slaughter House is located in the Time Vaults (a stabilized time eddy) hundreds of kilometers beneath the surface of Gallifrey. It is about the size of Albert Hall and serves as a stockpile of Gallifrey's deadliest weapons, both biological and technology based. Typical Time Lord weapons don’t need to be fired, instead they affect everything within a certain area. Some of these weapons can destroy millions of people in just a few seconds. Others, such as Quantum Crystalizers are a type of probability shredder that effectively alters probability in whatever way is nessecary to ensure the desired outcome. Inside the Slaughter House is the Omega Arsenal where all the weapons that are forbidden by the Laws of Time are locked away. Some of these weapons would trap the target in a time loop of their own death. Reactivation of the Slaughter House would require reactivation of the Time War Council who have the responsibility of administering the forbidden weapons in the time vaults. This might have been the real purpose behind Romana's actions.
(137 years before the beginning of the War)
Work begins in ernest to prepare for the War with the Enemy. The Time Lords could avoid the War with the Enemy but that would violate the Laws of Time. They've seen that the war takes place, so averting it would be changing their own "History." This is the beginning of the Temporal Cold-War.
(137 years before the War / after Alien Bodies / a short time after
the first robots)
The 101-Project begins: Research begins into creating a TARDIS that is capable of interacting on a verbal level with Time Lords. The designation of 101-Form was at the President's request. Its possible that the 101 refers to 101ita the Master's TARDIS.
(at the end of Seeing Eye part 2 / a little over 3 years after Part
1 / Sam is now 21)
Seeing Eye Part 2: Savar's eyes are found. The Doctor takes Savar's Eyes back to Gallifrey. It is possible he spent a year in the TARDIS before picking up Sam.
(according to Sam 3 months after Seeing Eye)
The Obverse becomes Iris Wildthyme’s home. (Does this mean Iris has connections to the CIA?)
Iris is poisoned by eating a Kaled mutant.
The Scarlet Empress: Iris Wildthyme regenerates for the fifth time.
months after Scarlet Empress from Doc's POV / 2 years after Scarlet
Empress from Iris's POV / before The Taint from Doc's POV)
Femme Fatale: The Doctor and Sam meet Iris Wildthyme again.
The Janus Conjunction: The Doctor breaks the Laws of Time by using a Temporal Orbit to find the time to develop a cure for Sam. The Doctor could take a side trip in the TARDIS while Sam is healing. This could account for the missing 2 years.
? (the 8th doc)
The Doctor finds his spare Sonic Screwdriver under the console.
? (the 8th Doctor)
The Doctor carries a #3 Sonic Screwdriver.
Dadalus becomes Time’s Champion. He undertakes a plan to destroy the Men of Glass before they become as bad as the Daleks. Using “technology” from the Enclave he creates a series of Corridors that connect to places through out the universe.
1018 The BBC novels produced in 1999 probably occur when the Doctor is 1018.
(several months before Autumn Mist from Sam's POV)
Revolution Man: The TARDIS realizes it is going to be destroyed soon and begins visiting Earth at different times near different spacial-temporal anomalies The TARDIS is trying to find a way to avoid it's destruction.
before Unnatural History, Sam is 22)
Dominion: the TARDIS is nearly destroyed.
before Autumn Mist)
Unnatural History: Blond Sam is created when Dark Sam enters the Temporal Cicatrix Scar. The Doctor can't remember who is President of Gallifrey. By this point there are about 32 conflicting bits of history in the Doctor's biodata The Faction Paradox knows the Doctor has been infected with the Paradox Virus and will join them eventually. The Doctor's TARDIS steals his shadow to warn him of the Faction's interference with his third regeneration. The Doctor meets Professor Daniel Joyce (a Time Lord Professor from Berkeley who is probably his father Ulysses) and his assistant Larna. The Scar is affecting the Project. The Doctor seals the Scar.
1018 (The Doctor is 1018)
after Autumn Mist / Sam is 22 / 1999 AD / Probably nearly a year
after Dowtime / Possibly about a year after being released in Seeing
Interference: The Doctor decides that he will make changes in Earth's political structures that he knows will create a changes in history and thus a violation of the First Law of Time. This is a reversal on his long held stance against interference with Earth's history. For the rest of this incarnation the Doctor won't believe that its morally wrong to change your own past, but he does see it as very dangerous, irresponsible, and risky. The Doctor defeats the Remote and influences sixteen-year old Sam’s development. A member of the Remote’s colony on Ordifica, named Laura Tobin (aka Compassion), begins traveling with the Doctor. The Doctor has Compassion’s receiver hooked to his TARDIS so that it screens all the signals she receives.
(after Autumn Mist, before The Taking
of Planet 5)
The Faction gives the Doctor a false shadow to replace the one he’s lost to hide the fact that he has bee infected with the Paradox Virus.
Compassion’s receiver is still hooked to his TARDIS so that it screens all the signals she receives. The Doctor’s TARDIS begins “narrowcasting” its programming to Laura in order to create the 102-Form.
1018 (a few
days before the Doctor arrives)
I.M. Foreman creates a Universe-in-a-Bottle using energy from the Space-Time Vortex. She designs the ecosystems of the various planets but appears to have been inspired by the Classic Universe to a large degree. She also puts Father Kreiner in the Bottle’s Vortex. This Bottle Universe is (allegedly) the most valuable object in the Mutter’s Spiral. This Bottle Universe has Time Lords with godlike powers and a Doctor who is almost identical to the real Universe. The beings in the Bottle Universe create their own Bottle Universe. I.M. Foreman believes this goes on forever.
AD / a few days before Interference Part 3)
Two Time Lords from the High Council of Gallifrey visit I. M. Foreman and offer to purchase her Bottle Universe. They want to use it as a last ditch escape route for the coming War with the Enemy.
Blue Angel from Gallifrey POV)
A team of Patrexians on Gallifrey predict a new development in TARDISes. The Type 102 which will be the mother of the first Type 103 TARDIS. The Type 102 is a human from the Remote who had been fed enough signals from the Doctor’s Type 40 TARDIS that she became and entirely new type of TARDIS. She is capable of communicating directly with 3 dimensional beings (humans) as well as 5 dimensional beings (older TARDISes). The Type 103’s will be essential to Time Lords during the War with the Enemy.

|THE SECOND IMPERATOR PRESIDENCY|
Acting on information from an alternate timeline created by the ressurected Morbius, the CIA prevent the planet Karn from being purchased by the Zarodnix Corperation. This eliminates the following events from history...
1049-1086?? (52 years before Sisterhood of the Flame)
The planet Karn is purchased by the Zarodnix Corperation and The Sisterhood of the Flame is bombarded until they leave the planet. Kristov Zarodnix is probably the richest man in the Galaxy. He buys and sells planets for a living, and collect any artifacts related to the Cult of Morbius. Zarodnix claims he plans to mine Karn, but in reality his is seeking the remains of Imperator Morbius' brain. He recoveres a centuries old fragment of Mortius’ brain stem.
1101-1138? (Centuries after Brain of Morbius)
Sisterhood of the Flame / Vengence of Moribus: Zarodnik is questing for a Time Lord to use genetic fusion. After a warning from the Sisterhood, Gallifrey is quarantined and all Time Lords are recalled all TARDIS. All TARDIS’s without recall Circuits are being collected by the Time Scoop. After capturing Lord Straxus, Zarodnix uses Straxus’s regeneration ability to regenerate Morbius' brain stem and extract the biodata from the brain stem/ He uses the energy of Straxus’ regeneration abilites to regenerate Morbius stem into a full body. Morbius' uses his stellar manipulator to drain the power frome Gallifrey's Eye of Harmony to the point where its all they can do to keep the transduction barrier up. Once this is done the Trell attack Gallifrey with missiles to keep them from leaving.
1111-1510?? (10 years after Sisterhood of the Flame / Morbius has just returned from conquering the Earth)
Lord Emperor Morbius conquers thousands of worlds. Despite being recreted, Morbius still needs to drain Straxus’s life force with a gene infuser whenever his weakens. Morbius builds a palace on Karn using the remnants of a thousand worlds. The Doctor deactivates the stellar manipulator. Once the power is returned to the Time Lords they change history and prevent Zarodnix from taking control of Karn, changing the last 62 years of history.

1050~ (After the Faraway Declaration / but before the Nine Homeworlds)
The Time Lords begin founding several colonies. This will continue until after the Faraway Declaration.
The Time Lords artificially extended the life of their star.
The Doctor (Paul Mcgann)
The 8th Doctor returns from the Post Time War Era. He brings with him a complete copy of the original Matrix. He returns at a point before the Last Great Time War beings. He plans to use the Matrix files to create a clone world of Gallifrey.
It is my belief that the Doctor traveled back to the Gallifrey Relative Time where he first left the pre-war era (i.e. when he was 1018 years old). He then enlisted the aid of the Time Lords of the Original Gallifrey to create a new Gallifrey as part of the 9 Homeworlds Project. This Gallifrey saw the resurrection of the Master (or the Magistrate as he will be known), and possibly Hedin.
It is unclear how many of his memories were regained from Compassion. It is possible that he deleted (or had blocked) the memories of his own experiences from the Post Time War Era and the fall of Gallifrey I. Certainly he never mentions them in subsequent stories, and this could explain his beleiving that he is only 900 years old. For the purposes of this timeline I will NOT be counting the 114 years and 9 months he spent in the Post War Era, nor the months of wandering that proceeded it. Those wishing to see the Doctor's actual age can add ~116 years to the number listed.
The Doctor gets drunk with the Corsair (in his 8th incarnation) and the two of them wake up in one of the vaults of the Bank of England.
The Doctor decides to try to save Gallifrey from his own inevitable future actions. He can’t change history, but he CAN make sure that the Gallifrey that he destroyed in “The Ancestor Cell” wasn’t the original Gallifrey. The Doctor fights the Kings of Space. Afterwards he takes a bottle of Sphinx shaped space containing an entire universe.
? (years before "Dead Romance")
The Time Lords (from the Foreman Universe) acquire a Bottle Universe from the Doctor and decide to use it as a place to hide their culture from the Gods.
(95 before the beginning of the War / 2059
At this point Romana is still in her 2nd Incarnation and there is still only one Gallifrey. With the High Council’s approval, the cousins of House Lineacrux quietly arranged for the crypto-forming of Eight new Gallifrey “Clones” out of existing Gallifreyan Colonies, but allow other Houses to take the credit for event. Lady Armourer Mantissa is also involved in the project as is the Doctor. The Project involves placing 8 planets into Inner Time and anchoring them to the Web of Time. At least one of the planets that were crypto-formed was inhabited by humans. Each of these cloneworlds was primed with the Laws of Time. The "clones" are to be used as boltholes, decoys, and alternative homeworlds because the original is less secure. This brings the total number of possible Gallifreys to nine.
While much of the numbering is speculative the following is a key to the various Gallifreys. To differentiate the events on Romana's Gallifrey III, and the Master's Gallifrey VIII this timeline will (from this point onwards) refer to Romana's planet as "Gallifrey III" and the Master's planet as "the Homeworld." While there is no hard data, most Gallifreyans feel that the original Gallifrey fell during the first half of the Time War.
Gallifrey I - The 'original' Gallifrey destroyed in the Battle of Mutter's Cluster at the beginning of Time War. (see The Infinity Doctors, The Apocalypse Element, the Gallifrey audios, and The Ancestor Cell)
Gallifrey II - The Gallifrey where Flavia had a long and successful reign (see The Eight Doctors)
Gallifrey III - The Gallifrey seen in the Big Finish 8th Doctor Adventures Audios (see Sisterhood of the Flame)
Gallifrey IV - The Gallifrey devastated by the High Council to keep Varnax from seizing control of it. (see Last of the Time Lords)
Gallifrey V - The Gallifrey destroyed by the Cybermen (see Real Time)
Gallifrey VI - The One True Gallifrey which Rassilon later rules over (see The End of Time and Day of the Doctor)
Gallifrey VII - The Gallifrey where the Doctor prevents the Elysian Faction from changing history (see The Final Chapter)
Gallifrey VIII - The Gallifrey where the Master became War King (see The Book of the War and the Faction Paradox Audios)
Gallifrey IX - The Gallifrey where the Celestial Preservation Agency (CPA) hire the actor Daland to play the Doctor in a museum (see Omega)
The original Gallifrey was probably located 29,000 lightyears from Sol, near the center of the galaxy but by the year 2000 AD it was 250,000,000 lightyears away from Earth. One of the cloneworlds (probably the Romana's Gallifrey I or Gallifrey III) was put in the original's location. One Gallifrey could be seen with the Griffith Observatory's Telescope on 21st century Earth. These Gallifreys were also scattered through time. Given that these clone worlds are in different locations in space and time there is insufficient data to convert Time Lords dates to Gallifreyan Relative Time in Earth's BC/AD calendar. Some the starting points (ie when they were created and the Doctor was 1056 years old) appear to be as follows...
* If left at its original time zone, one Gallifrey would be at 2059 AD at the time of the 9 Homeworlds Project.
* One Gallifrey could be seen with the Griffith Observatory's Telescope on 21st century Earth. The image depicts Gallifrey before the War started.
* Rassilon's One True Gallifrey starts at ~9,000,000 AD
* Gallifrey VII starts between 48,000 BC and 0 AD (Brax believes this Gallifrey is not the original)
* One Gallifrey might start at 3172 AD
* One Gallifrey might start at 30,796 AD
1056 (95 before the beginning of the War)
By presidential decree the cloneworld colonies are kept completely out of contact with each other and with the original Gallifrey Officially this was done to ensure that Time Lord society survived the War. However the project was shrouded in secrecy and it is rumored that the original Gallifrey might have been shifted to a new location leaving a cloneworld as a decoy in its place. Such a move could have had a large (but unknown) effect on the History of the Spiral Politic. Officially each cloneworld is occupied by caretaker-Houses but since communication and travel between them is forbidden each one believes itself to be the original Gallifrey and each has it's own Lord or Lady President. Each of the Clone Worlds think the other Gallifreys are merely Dominions of their Gallifrey.
As part of the defense mechanisms these other Gallifreys appear not be connected with the Protocols of Linearity (aka the 3rd Law of Time). Indeed it is possible that a new Law of Time was passed to prevent each Gallifrey's causal nexus from interacting directly with the others. This would mean that any enemy who engadged one of the cloneworlds who then be trapped by the Protocols of Linearity making it very difficult for them to mount an attack on any other Gallifrey (or their agents). Any Time Lord who survived their Gallifrey's destruction would only be able to visit worlds which either had no connection with the War or worlds where it was believed that Gallifrey had fallen. Effectively they would be stranded in the Post Time War era. This is exactly what we see in the 8th Doctor after The Ancestor Cell. Though the 8th Doctor was able to get back into the Pre-Time War era, both after the events of Taking of Planet 5 and again after the events of The Ancestor Cell, so we know it is possible.

The High Council of the Time Lords orders (one of many) hatching projects that involve creating clones of important Time Lords, like the Master and the Rani. This requires sacrificing vast amount of resources. Using a biodata extract from the Eye of Harmony in the Doctor's TARDIS, the Time Lords resurrect the Master because they believe he would be the perfect warrior for the Time War. The Master gains a new cycle of regenerations. They also could have made clones of Romana among others.

Romana is elected Mistress of the Nine Gallifreys. Romana is elected President of Gallifrey I located in the Kasterborous Sector. At the time of Romana’s Election the roles of President and Chancellor are combined. Given that one of the major reasons of the Nine Homeworlds Project is to protect the original Gallifrey by providing potential decoy, it is unlikely that the Kasterborous Gallifrey is the original Gallifrey. Romana's sudden absence from the other Homeworlds is explained by a hasty resignation.Romana keeps the fact that there are multiple Gallifrey's is kept secret from everyone except the High Council at this point. Each believes that the others are merely colonies.

The Homeworld is designated Gallifrey VIII. A new Time Lord becomes the Head of the Presidency on the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII). He has fair skin and large black mustache, and is known for his stoicism. Because their new President is an obstructionist, the High Council refuses to make any further preparations for the War.

Shada: The Doctor misses Chronotis's mean time and arrives ages late. Skagra tries to find Salayvin and take over the Universe but the 8th Doctor stops him. Salayvin is killed and revived by his TARDIS (possibly making him an immortal fixed point in time like Jack Harkness). The Doctor returns the Anicent Outlaws to Shada. He also sends a report to Gallifrey detailing events and claiming that Salyavin is was killed. The Doctor keeps The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey and sends it back in time to his 7th self. The Time Lords rediscover Shada. There are thousands and thousands of prisoners in Shada at this point. Shada was originally unmanned, but this would change after it was re-discovered.
1056 (probably right after Shada / the Doctor is barely over 1000 years old)
The Time Lady's Story: Time Lady ‘Tianna’Eltiannachrisanik of the Department of Administrative Records discoveres that someone has forged the creditials of a High Councilor and used them to access information on renegade Time Lords. They discover that the Time Lord Handrel has been using the Timescoop to collect ancient monsters (including Vampires) in hopes of using there DNA to acheive perpetual bodily regeneration. Tianna is infected with the V-Factor and placed in stasis.

A new crystal containing entropic power is discovered on the oldest planet in the universe, Etra Prime (aka Planet One). It becomes known as the Apocalypse Element and is capable of shredding the raw fabric of space-time in an unstoppable reaction. As a result of this discovery, the planet Archetryx is host to a Time Treaty of twenty of the greatest powers in space-time. They include the Time Lords, the Virgoans, and the Monan Host, and the People. The Daleks are not invited. President Romana and a diplomatic party of 300 Time Lords represent Gallifrey. Shortly afterward everyone who arrived Etra Prime vanished into time and space, taking 500 people with it, including Romana.
The President temporarily resumes his position as the Lord President of Gallifrey I. A Male Time Lord becomes the Lord President of Gallifrey I. He was Chancellor when the Doctor was at the Academy.
The Master becomes known as the Magistrate and serves as a Minister on the High Council on Gallifrey I. He is the second highest ranking Prydonian and enforces all the laws from the Citadel bylaws to the Laws of Time.
?? (before the Doc turns 2000)
On the President's orders, the Doctor becomes a Councilor on the High Council of Gallifrey I, making him the third highest ranking Prydonian. The Doctor (from Infinity Doctors) has a long oval face, aristocratic nose, high forehead, full mouth, closely cropped hair, and sad blue eyes. He's a little taller than average. The Doctor and the Magistrate are the only council members under 2000 years old. Unlike other councilors the Doctor has no servant.

The Time Lords build several fortresses on Simia KK98 to use as a retreat for the whole race if Gallifrey is destroyed. It is one of the few colonies that the Time Lords have. The fortresses appear to be giant towers made of rough rock and are miles high and are in constant contact with the Matrix.
1056 (95 before the beginning of the War)
The Time Lords (from both Gallifrey and the Homeworld) construct many new (formerly illegal) weapons. The House of Arpexia develops and produces most of the weaponry for the War. Romana acquires weapons from many other races. These weapons are stockpiled within a time vault inside the Slaughterhouse. Inside the Slaughter House is the Omega Arsenal where all the weapons that are forbidden by the Laws of Time are locked away. All of these weapons, except the Moment, will be used against the Daleks over the course of the Time War.
The 8 Doctors (From Gallifrey II's POV): Lady President Flavia of Gallifrey II monitors the Doctor as he meets with each of his other incarnations. Ryoth tries to kill the Doctor. A Committee of Inquire is started by the Doctor during Trial of a Time Lord. Flaivia has regenerated at least twice since the The Five Doctors. Flaiva has had a long and successful presidency and will continue to do so (probably lasts over 200 years then).

The Infinity Doctors: (Patience is 2,000,000 years old at the time of Infinity Doctors). At this point the Doctor's 'father' is a Professor at Berkeley. The Time Lords are talking about investigating the disturbance at Tyler's Folly (see Down). Larna and the Doctor develop an intimate relationship. The Magistrate is left at Event 2. Hedin finishes his 300 volume biography of Omega, that took him 400 years to write. The leaders of the Rutans and the Sontarans are revived from death by the TARDIS (almost certainly making them immortal fixed points in time like Jack Harkness) and two of them form an Alliance. The Doctor extinguishes the candles in his Zero Room. Larna leaves Gallifrey I to help with the restoration of the Universe from the Effect. This will take about 2000 years. Voran becomes President of Gallifrey. The Doctor decides to leave Gallifrey and explore the Universe again.

Commander Hallan and the President (of Romana's Gallifrey I) visit Devidia. This is Hallan's 42nd visit to the planet.
the War / probably shortly before the Master appears on Gallifrey
A renegade Time Lord (probably the Master) is captured by the Enemy after an extensive chase/battle. His captors are humanoid representatives of the Enemy and “the first, the many, and the indivisible.” He is given the time active drug Praxis during interrogation. While under its effect he witnesses several events including an alternative beginning of the War. The renegade found himself near a prominent chapterhouse in the mountains of Gallifrey. The Enemy disables the Time Lords with a telepathic attack against the Noosphere. All the chapterhouses in sight are destroyed by black fireballs (probably a supercharged chunks of the causal nexus [Web of Time??] itself). Several stolen TARDISes return to Gallifrey and explode. Cyborg human Ashla shock troops (created by the Blood Coteries of Siloportem) arrive through portholes in the sky. The troops self-destruct if captured. The Ashla capture a Loom and infect it – causing it to mutate. The Eye of Harmony is neutralized and the planet is devastated. These experiences are recorded in the Praxis Manuscript which eventually finds its way (via the human artist Diego Rivera in 1933 AD) into the hands of the Faction Paradox.
The Master arrives on the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII) and kills three of the Chancellery guards and confronts the President about the Enemy. The Time Lords learn of the predictions of the Praxis Manuscript. It is the first detailed prediction of War that they receive. The President refuses to believe him and forbids the other Time Lords to discuss the possibility in public. The Master might have given the High Council or the President a set of coordinates of a barren zone of the formative continuum, 3,500 years after the big bang, and claims this is where the Enemy lives. These coordinates are outside the Noosphere of a TARDIS's capabilities.
(near the end
of the 8th Doctor DWM
The Flood: While protecting the Web of Time from the Cybermen the Doctor is exposed to the Vortex's time winds and becomes one with the 5th Dimension (the Space-Time Vortex). In doing so he evolves into a transcendental being. He plans to remain in this ascended state but changes his mind when he realizes that his companion Destrii would die without his help. For this reason he returns to his corporeal form.
1076 (5 years after the Master’s last meeting)
The Master surrenders to the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII) and asks to address a Closed Session of the High Council. By this point a list of his crimes take up 2 data coils. The Master explains that he has evidence of the Enemy's existence. He convinces most of the council members, but the Lord President refuses to attend the session. After the Closed Session he is given a total pardon and leaves the Homeworld. The High Council attempts to find a diplomatic solution to the coming war. On the advice of the CIA the President does everything in his power to stop preparations. However talk of the Enemy becomes popular.
1076 (4 decades before the Faraway Declaration)
The Master begins developing secret offensive and defensive protocols for the coming war.
The few diplomats who escape presidential veto leave Gallifrey VIII to contact the Enemy, but never return. It is rumored that the Lord President had their TARDISes sabotaged.

The Apocalypse Element: Romana escapes from the Daleks and resumes her position as the 413th President of Gallifrey I. The Daleks attack the Monan Host. The Daleks invade Gallifrey, kill the interim Lord President, and recreate the Seriphean Galaxy (or Galaxy 17A53) to be devoid to sentient life. The Seriphean Galaxy is a neighbor of Mutter's Stellian Spiral and is four times the size of Gallifrey's galaxy. Things on Gallifrey begin to "change" and many will later say that this was the beginning of the escalation of hostility that will lead to the Last Great Time War. At this point Type 70s are very well designed (with more capabilities and better telepathic circuits than the Type 40) and are still considered "new."
1076.4 (during the Archetryx expansion)
The core of the 3rd moon of Heftafalin becomes temporally unstable. The entire moon is placed in a chamber inside the Anomaly Vault.

The Time Lords create the Doomsday Probe, which can release 5 seconds of accelerated entropy - enough to devastate time through out an entire sector - killing all life. The Doomsday Probe probably used the Apocalypse.

While rebuilding Monan Host from the Dalek attack, the Time Lord engineers place destructive equations in its hyperspatial links. If the Time Lord's activate these equations it would destroy the Monan Host. This occurs with out President Romana's knowledge.
1077.6 - 1151?
This is where the 8th Doctor's Big Finish audio adventures probably take place.
NOTE: An alternative placement would be after the 8th Doctor's death on Drornid. He was resurrected in the City of the Saved and might have had all his Big Finish audios stories after he left the city and collected the TARDIS from Drornid. This would explain his claiming to be around 900 years old. Due to the Protocals of Linearity, that would be 'how old' he was by Gallifrey's clocks when he was resurrected in the City of the Saved (the city is founded during the 6th Doctor's era). But why would quote the age of his 6th incarnation [even if that was the Gallifrey Relative Time he was currently existing in] if he was going to ensure that all his interactions with Gallifrey occur well after that point [after he turns 1018 at the very least]. For the time being I will be placing all the 8th Doctor Big Finish stories in the period between The Apocalypse Element and the begining of the Time War.
months before Neverland)
Storm Warning: The TARDIS performs an Emergency Stop for the first time in centuries. The Doctor changes history (and violates several Laws of Time) by preventing the death of Charlotte "Charley" Pollard on the R101 (this is probably a response to the decision he made in Interference). She becomes a space-time breach that forms a conduit to Anti-Time. In an attempt to stabilize reality from the chaos of Anti-Time, the Matrix is instructed to store the entire History of the Universe. The 8th Doctor travels with Charley. Charley Pollard is the first companion the Doctor has fallen in love with out of the last several (possibly all?) non-Gallifreyan companions. He also thinks she would make a better Time Lord then he does.
?? (before Seasons of Fear)
By this point in his life the Doctor prays to his God (or Gods) every day.
after being elected)
Romana is a very popular President for a time on Gallifrey I.
Seasons of Fear: The Web of Time is shattered allowing the Nimon to create an alternate version of history where they assume the role of the Time Lords in the Universe. The Doctor spends 3 weeks with the Abbot of Falsecar. The Doctor ensures that this version of history doesn't come to pass. The temporal paradoxes created by the Doctor lead to the appearance of a new type of creature which takes the form of Charley Pollard.
Embrace the Darkness: Type 70 TARDISs are still considered new.
?? (After Apocalypse Element / Before Neverland)
The Coalition of the Temporal Powers is formed with the Archetryx Convention. Among its members are the Time Lords, the Monan Host, the Nekkistani, the Warpsmiths of Phaidon, Unvoss, Virgoans, and Humanity. The Coalition is based on the agreement that as long as the other powers limit their time travel technology development the Time Lords will defend them from all temporal attacks. Time Technology Assessors (made up of representatives of several members) are authorized to investigate any alleged temporal advancements. Independently assembled commissions of temporal powers oversee criminal trials. Planet Gamma Beta Delta Oblique/00 oblique/97/5 Category Kappa Sigma 4 (aka the Enclave of Gryben) is modified by the Time Lords so that almost any TT Capsule that enters the Space Time Vortex is forced to materialize there. Grybon has Transduction Barriers (so it might be located in Inner Time). They are then trapped under Gryben's transduction barriers until they and their TT Capsule can be assessed. Most are return to their original space-time zone, but some choose to live on Gryben. Members of the Coalition have complex navigational algorithms that allow them to avoid Gryben's massive pull. Earth's 20th Century becomes a strictly embargoed time zone.
1077.8? (while traveling with Charley)
Solitaire: The Toymaker (the Crystal Guardian) is outwitted when one of his traps gains awareness and decides to test him.
Time of the Daleks: The Daleks attempt to build a Temporal Elimination Device which will allow them to seize control of the Time Vortex, but when activated something goes wrong and the Emperor and his fleet of 1,700 timeships is trapped in a time loop within the Vortex. By this point the Daleks have used the information they stole during the Apocalypse Element to create their own Eye of Harmony.

The Hand of Omega returns to Gallifrey I and goes back to hanging around the Omega memorial. The CIA and President Romana observe the events of Remembrance of the Daleks. Believing Skaro to be destroyed they realize that this means the possibility of the Daleks becoming will ever become the enemy in the Time War has been reduced ten-fold. They believe the future Time War in Heaven has been averted. Romana deliberately choose to let the Dalek menace exist because they unite the other species of the cosmos. The form of the enemy will keep changing throughout the War. While the removal of the Daleks as a major temporal power, new enemies will develop and threaten the Time Lords. But the Daleks are taking steps to ensure that the their planet is secretly saved.
Anti-Time is discovered. Romana authorizes mission beyond the Anti-Time Rift to investigate Zagreus using a Class 7c Super Orbital Time Station. This Station has the 8th Door to the Matrix. Its interior architecture can transcendentally reconfigure itself instantly to meet with the needs of its crew. This level of control is a new innovation. Another fairly new innovation it has is the ability to partially regenerate damaged systems and seal hull breaches.

Academy, 6 months after Storm Warning from Charley's POV)
Neverland: Vansell is killed. The Doctor gives Romana back her Sonic Screwdriver. Doctor materialized his TARDIS around a casket with a critical mass of raw Anti-Time energy. This prevents Anti-Time from contaminating all of Gallifrey I, including the Eye of Harmony and saves of the Web of Time and all continuity from destruction. The Doctor’s TARDIS feels betrayed when the Doctor throws their lives away in order to save Charley.
The Patrexies, Lord Narvin (aka Narvinectralonum) becomes Chief Coordinator of the CIA. Torvald serves under him.
Romana begins writing a story (possibly based on the life of the Doctor) about a student at a Time Academy named Sigma. His fellow classmate is Louandra and one of his teachers is Cardinal Louvis.
1078.5 (Matrix date 6798.9 / 6 Gallifreyan months after Neverland / before Romana meets Leela)
Zagreus: Rassilon keeps the Doctor alive and he and his TARDIS are contaminated by anti-time becoming Zagreus. Zagreus plans to destroy the Web of Time to make the (Multi?)universe fit with his view. Rassilon tries to make Zagreus Lord President of Gallifrey I so that he can enter the sealed Divergence Universe and destroy them. Rassilon and his Foundry is lost in the Divergence Universe. The Doctor’s TARDIS discovers how to partially cure the contamination. The Doctor, TARDIS, and Charley enter the Divergence Universe to ensure that the anti-time within never escapes.
NOTE: Romana clearly has not met Leela in this timeline. But it clearly takes place significantly after Lungbarrow for Andred. This could be a result of the mind blocks necessary for the Nine Homeworld Project to succeed. Or perhapse it is a result of the Foreman Timeline merging with the Classic Timeline.
1078.5 (right after Zagreus / the Doctor has had a thousand years of life)
Scherzo: The Doctor admits that he once loved Charley. A part of Charley will literally always be a part of the Doctor, due to the physical bond they shared. There are 9 Galaxies in the Divergence Universe, but timestream - only the present moment. Eventualy the whole Universe restarts and lives the exact same sequence of events over again.

Andred tries to learn the identity of the neo-conservatives leaders. He arranges a meeting between himself and CIA Coordinator Narvin. Narvin realizes this is a deception and sends CIA Commander Torvald to kill Andred. A fire fight occurs and Torvald is killed while Andred is wounded. Andred deliberately regenerates into Torvald so that he can infiltrate and influence the CIA (which he believes is involved with the conspiracy). Andred swaps Torvald's DE with his own. The genetic copy is such that Andred is now considered to be a member of the House of Deeptree instead of Redlooms. Fearing that Leela wouldn't understand Andred never tries to contact Leela. As far as Leela and Romana are concerned he disappears and no trace of him can be found. By this point Leela cannot return to the Sevateam because her telomeres have become dependent on Gallifreyan Biofields to keep her from aging to death within a year.

Gillestes tries to place the Dogma Virus into the Capitol’s Main Water Pumping Station. At Darkel’s urging, Wynter releases the Pandora Creature from the Matrix, which possess him. The creature feeds on ambition and greed. The tortured Time Lord dies, but has a fragment of Atron Energy which can be used to ID a Time Lord. The identification shows him to be a future version of Castellan Wynter. Braxietal is elevated to the rank of Chancellor. He is the first to hold the rank of Chancellor since Romana was elected.
1081.0 (Right after the first part of Pandora / Relative Date 17-11-9-0-1.557 / Probably 327 days after Torvald is replaced by Andred)
Pandor (Part 2): Pandora tries to use Wynter to possess Romana. To prevent Pandora from taking over Wynter tries to poison himself with the Regenerative Mutagen. When this fails he mutilates his body, and then tries to warn the President by stealing a TARDIS and traveling into Gallifrey’s relative past. Leela is appointed acting Castellan. Braxiatel tricks the Pandora Creature into trying to possess him. He then voluntarily takes his TARDIS and goes into exile from Gallifrey I to prevent Pandora from ever accessing the Matrix again. Officially he loses his title of Lord Cardinal and is exiled for breaking the First Law of Time. Andred is made Castellan on the orders of Inquisitor Darkel.
Darkel begins unknowingly taking the advice of the Pandora entity.
1081.0 (Matrix Date 6801.44 / probably shortly after Pandora)
Leela begins lecturing at the Academy on how to adapt to life on Gallifrey I.
1081.5? (Some time after Leela begins teaching at the Academy)
Insurgency: Valyestriantrilumar (Valyes) takes over as Acting Chancellor and begins running the Prydon Time Academy. Neeloc is a Prydonian student who wants to follow in the footsteps of the Doctor. The human student, Taylor, acquires plans that use the Great Key, but dies when he tries to enter the Caldera to find the Key. Andred is killed in the Vaults by Romana who is under the control of Pandora. Narvin gives Darkel full access to CIA resources to depose Romana. Darkel invokes the Right of Challenge against President Romana. Current predictions indicate the Darkel will win the Electoral Contest. Leela is made Security Advisor for the Prydonian Time Academy. The Prydonians and Patrexies ally with Darkel while the Arcalians wait to see who the winner is. Maxil becomes the new Castellan.
(right after Insurgency)
Imperiatrix: Antimon the commentator for Public Register Video begins delivering bombs on Gallifrey I under orders from Darkel. At this point Darkel doesn't know that Antimon is an agent for Free Time. There is an explosion at the Academy and a little over 30 students (mostly aliens) are killed. Romana beings contacting the Future Vision of the Imperiatrix for advice on the future. Under the laws of the Book of the Old Time Romana declares herself Imperiatrix and announces that she has access to the Great Key. This gives her exclusive and unlimited access to the Matrix and the timelines of every member of the Supreme Council. She is the first Imperiatrix since Pandora. The Chapters and the High Council are dissolved. Antimon tries to detonate bombs in the Panoptican. Darkel attempts a coup but Romana has infiltrated her supporters crushes the attempt. Leela kills Antimon. To stop the Panoptican from being bombed Romana accesses the Matrix. This allows Pandora to manifest by drawing matter from a biodata imprint inside the Matrix taking the form of Romana's first incarnation. Darkel and Pandora are arrested. K-9, now infected by the Pandor Virus, releases Pandora and helps her stage a coup. With the support of Darkel, Pandora assumes the presidency. This starts a civil war on Gallifrey.
1081.5? (Between Imperiatrix and Fractures)
Battles are a daily occurrence in the Capitol. Many towers of the Capitol are destroyed. By this point Narvin has hundreds of years of experience with computer security. The Prydon Time Academy is attacked and left in ruins. During the attack Striped Pig-Rats infected with the Dogma Virus escape a lab and begin to spread the virus around Gallifrey I. This begins what will become known as The Pandora Devastation.
1081.5? (10 days after Imperiatrix?)
Fractures: 753 people are killed in the first 10 days of Pandora's rule. Romana destroys the Archive Banks of the Matrix (holding millions of years of history records). Romana scrambles the Imprimatur Cortex in the Bearthing Bays, preventing any Timeship from dematerializing. This prevent's Gallifrey's Civil War from turning into a Time War. Romana's attempt to destroy the Artron Forum results in Leela's being blinded. Romana and Leela find Aesino from the Anomaly Vault and kill her. They set a new base of operations in the ruins of the Prydon Time Academy. By this point Skimmers are never used on Gallifrey.
1081.5?? (probably after being exiled / before returning to become President)
Brax eliminates the Free Time Movement. Brax has learned that the coming Last Great Time War in Heaven is more than just rumors. He also acquires a second hand Time Scoop. Using a variation of the matrix partition fields Brax shifts his entire collection (and indeed the entire planetoid) a few seconds out of phase with normal time and space.
?? (must be sometime after Insurgency)
I Am The Law: Commander Maxil arrests a Prydonian Student for wreck-riding a TARDIS to the Earth in the 1970s. The student had several 2000 AD Comics and Maxil became obsessed with the character of Judge Dread. Maxil took the title Dread and became Gallifrey's vigilante judge, jury, and executioner, starting with the execution of the student. He eventually realizes the Time Lords are the source of true corruption and focuses his attention on them.
1082? (Many spans after Fractures? / shortly after Fractures / probably less than 6 months after Fractures)
Warfare: K-9 implants a version of the Dogma Virus in a Staser that makes anyone who is shot with it completely loyal to the Pandora. He also develops a technological version of the Dogma Virus. Pandora's forces mount an attack on Romana's base in the Academy ruins but Narvin sets up a matrix partition to act as a giant forcefield which protects the Academy. Romana confronted Pandora and was infected with K-9's version of the Dogma Virus. Leela stabs Pandora, killing her body. To ensure Pandora's complete destruction Romana feeds it to the entity that controlled the Anomaly Vault, trapped both of them within a dark partition of the Matrix, and then erased the entire Matrix. Romana is severely traumatized by her ordeal and Lord Valyestriantrilumar (Valyes) takes over as Acting-President of Gallifrey I.
?? If Pandora had remained Imperiatrix she would have won the Last Great Time War with the Daleks.
(shortly after Warfare)
Appropriation: The Time Lords being growing new TARDISes. The Transduction Barriers around Gallifrey I fail causing Gallifrey to be connected with Normal Space and normal Time. The Sunari invade Gallifrey. The Sunari and Nekkistani declare war on Gallifrey for endangering their students at the Time Academy. After a vote of no-confidence Romana steps down as Lady President and names her third incarnation as her successor. Cardinal Matthiascivandren (Matthias) uses legal trickery to claim the title of Vice-President of Gallifrey. A malfunction of the Transduction Barriers destroys the invading Sunari and Nekkistani vessels.
1082? (shortly after Appropriation)
Mindbomb: Romana is imprisoned and Matthias and Darkel both declare themselves candidates for the Presidential Election. The Emergency High Council has all of President Romana's actions since Pandora escaped (Relative Date 17-11-9-0-1.557) recinded. This means that Braxiatal is now Chancellor once again. He returns to Gallifrey I (with the Matrix destroyed he can no longer infect it) and claims the position of Lord President of Gallifrey. Brax tricks Darkel into releasing the last vestage of Pandora inside her own head and it kills her. Brax then steps down and names Matthias as his successor to be the next Lord President of Gallifrey He does this so that Romana will remain objective when the time comes to decide Gallifrey's future. Brax then departs Gallifrey.
1082? (shortly after Mindbomb / not all that long before the beginning of the Last Great Time War)
Panacea: Romana is banished from the Capitol of Gallifrey I. She returns to the ruins of her House of Heatshaven and lets it burn down. By this point almost 1 in 9 Gallifreyans have been infected by pig-rats carrying the prototype version of the Dogma Virus. If the Dogma Virus continues to spread it will destroy the Gallifreyan people in a few centuries. It would take thousands of years to find a proper cure to the Dogma Virus. President Matthias invites Arkadian to Gallifrey to try to find a solutions to Gallifrey's economic instability. He makes Gallifrey the very tempting offer of 10,000,000,000,000 credits for their stockpile of temporal weapons that Pandora created. When the High Council refuses Arkadian offers Gallifrey the cure to the Dogma Virus for the weaponry. Brax uses the Time Scoop to steal the Bio-Data Archive of all living Time Lords as well as Romana, Leela , and Narvin. They are all transported to the Axis. This is where Braxiatel is keeping his collection. Brax believes that the Dogma Virus has weakened Gallifrey to the point where it can not survive the coming Time War. Brax plans to keep the Bio-Data Archive safe from the coming War. Brax also reveals that the cure to the Dogma Virus is a mutagen that deactivates the symbiotic nuclie. This means that there will be no more regenerations and no more Time Lords. They will cease to be Higher Evolutionaries. Arkadian plans to sell the temporal weapons to some metal gentlemen (probably the Daleks) but is killed. The Dogma "cure" (the Anti-Time Lord Mutagen) is taken back to Gallifrey where is probably begins to infect the populace turning Gallifreyans into a lesser species.
Reborn: Romana decides to see if one of the 1000 different alternate Gallifrey might have a solution or serve as a new home for them. They being exploring them one by one. Romana will later claim to have seen 1000 different universes. By this point, Romana still has never had any children.
The Daleks consider the Axis to be the Time Lord's greatest secret. Whenever a Time Lord is lost trying to create (or prevent) the creation of an alternate timelines the timeline in question is truncated and attached, in a spoke like pattern, to the Axis. The Axis is sealed off from space and time within the nowhere of interdimensional space. It is also shifted a few seconds out of phase with normal time. An Overseer from the sideways dimension of Guardus supervises the Axis. The Communications Tower in the Capitol the standard method of communicating with the Overseer and even the Coordinator of the CIA is unlikely to have actually visited the Axis. Each of these truncated alternate timelines is trapped in a giant loop. There are portals which allow access to the truncated timelines. While most of the timelines in the Axis are created by the Time Lord meddling, some are produced by other species. Shortly before the Time War there were million truncated timeline stored in the Axis and one thousand versions of Gallifrey. But by the end of the Time War over 100 billion alternate versions of history will have been created. Some of the alternate Gallifrey's are as follows...
* Jonbar Hinge: Since there is no reference to the Sontaran invasion of Gallifrey and Romana never travelled with the Doctor, it is likely that the events of The Invasion of Time never took place in the alternative timeline. Instead Leela and K-9 helped the Doctor recovered the Key to Time.
This Gallifrey has capitalist consumer based culture. TARDISes are sold to Gallifreyans who have no symbiotic nuclei. The factory can barely satisfied 10% of the demand. Romana was loomed but never left Gallifrey and never travelled with the Doctor. Andred was married to Romana and had a son. Andred was still in his first incarnation when he died in the insurrection. Their son, Antonin became Prime Usher. Romana eventually regenerates into her second incarnation.
Reborn: Romana visits this Gallifrey at the same point in history as on Prime Timeline Gallifrey.
* Jonbar Hinge: This is probably a universe where the Doctor became Death’s Champion rather then the Master.
In this version of history, Brax did try to kill the Doctor. But Doctor killed Brax and left Gallifrey to try to undo the damage done by the Time Lords (Probably the Morbius' cult). He was brought back to Gallifrey (possibly after War Games, since he never experience Inferno) and had his history changed so that he reguarded his renegade days as a pointless waste of time. He is now the Lord Burner. Leela has altered her own history so that her father was killed when she was young. She became the Interrogator General. Romana is Lady President of Gallifrey. There is a Temporal Intervention Agency. They change History freely to ensure that the Web of Time conforms exactly to their plan. The plan is to restore all alternate timelines to the Web of Time creating the Monoverse. They have even changed Gallifrey’s own history, though this resulted in a 1/3rd of the population of Citadel being rendered non-existent.
Disassembled: Romana visits this Gallifrey at the same point in history as on Prime Timeline Gallifrey. This Lord Burner and the primary timeline Braxiatel are lost in the Void between universes. One of them ends up meeting Bernice Summerfield for the first time.
* Jonbar Hinge: Rassilon turned his back on Gallifrey and became a vampire to gain immortality. He also turned Lord Prydon into a Vampire. My guess is that when Rassilon was experimenting with the immortality virus something went wrong and he was infected. This would have occured fter regeneration is invented, after Omega's death, and after the transduction barrier is invented, but well before the Doctor was born.
Several thousand years before Romana arrives, Rassilon built the nests in the Shadows on Gallifrey. He eventurally regained his senses and went to war with the Great One. Rassilon spent his final days building a Great Key. Prydon killed Rassilon shortly after he completed the Great Key to the Transduction Barrier. Rassilon’s final gift, was to polarize the transduction barrier to stop all light.
The Eternal War between the Gallifreyans and Vampires has been fought for centuries. Rassilon left prophacies. The term The True Lords of Gallifrey is in common usage. It looks like some of the pythian seers, like Cassandra, still live on Gallifrey. Most of the True Lords of Gallifrey are on their last regeneration and only about a decade from starvation. The True Lords create "hounds" by having their people drink measured amounts of vampire, then forcing them to regenerated. This process is repeated again and again. The subject will eventualy turn into a hound like beast (with no knowledge or experiance) that will be completely loyal to whoever that person was loyal too. This Mal'akh like beast has amazing senses and is the perfect Vampire tracking, hunting and killing beast. Prydon is Lord of Forever. He knew Rassilon fairly well and has access to Rassilon’s Chambers. Arcallia is the son of Lord Prydon. Cassandra the Visonary has two hearts. Masjestrix Borusa is the True Lady of Gallifrey. She witnessed the death of Lord Patrix 30 years earlier when the last of the armies of Southern Gallifrey fell.
The ceremonial armor of Faction Paradox is made of the bones of Vampiric Time Lords. The Faction claims that these are the bones of Gallifreyans from an alternate universe where the Time Lords lost the Eternal Wars. Others claim that the contamination happened in this universe during the Eternal War and thus the bones are also derived from the same universe. The Armor could be the bones of future Gallifreyans who finally (in the distant future) succumbed to the V-Factor in the Immortality Virus. Whatever the source, these creatures were 6' 3" tall and covered in chitinous bone plates and were some of the most resiliant creatures the Faction ever encountered.
Annihilation: This is in Gallfrey’s past, thousands of years after the transduction barrier was polarized. Narvin is seriously wounded. Leela is mutated into a Makala like creature. This restores her eyes and gives her amazingly powerful senses and strength. Romana alters the polarization of the barriers to so that suns can shine and Gallifrey is cleansed from Vampires. She doesn’t bother to find out if any of the untainted Gallifreyans survived. Romana claims the title Destroyer of Worlds.
* Jonbar Hinge: All the Time Lords are simian monkey like beings. Possibly the Constructors of Destiny never interfered with their evolution.
* Jonbar Hinge: Rassilon was assassinated shortly before he could complete the Eye. It was lost until only a few centuries before Romana's arrival.
These Gallifreyans can regenerate, but they do not have proper time travel and are not Time Lords. The layout of the Citadel is identical to the on in the Prime Timeline. The planet's population is over 13 billion. Slavery was never outlawed, but killing a slave is a capitol offense. Every citizen caries a side-arm. These Gallifreyans are working on Phase 4 of Project Rassilon to create an Eye of Harmony (using Rassilon’s notes). Phase 4 is to be completed in about 5 Spans (about 32 years).
Forever: Romana arrives just as this Universe's version of her is assassinated. So Romana pretends to be her and assumes the title of Lady President. At first, Romana decides to give this Gallifrey the power of the EOH so that she can obtain a timeship and escape. She determines that there are 13 billion Krillic are trapped in Eye. In order to safe-guard the Axis, Romana has K-9 deactivate the Axis Portal. This leaves Romana, Leela, and Narvin trapped within the Axis in a truncated timeline.
Evolution: Events begin at the start of this universe's Romana's second term. Romana acquires a copy of the un-infected biodata files of this Gallifrey's population.
Arbitration: Begins nearly a year after Forever, and lasts about 3 days.
Emancipation: Takes place 9 Months after Arbitration.
Extermination: When the Daleks from the Prime Timeline invade this Gallifrey, Romana destroys them and returns to the Axis.
The Daleks have invaded the Axis and used it to conquer numerous truncated timelines. The Dalek’s Coordinator predicts which universes will be viable for conquest. When the Daleks from the Prime Timeline invade this Gallifrey, Romana destroys them and returns to the Axis.
| In Zagreus the Doctor saw several alternate Gallifreys that differ from the one in the Prime Timeline. But all of these
Gallifrey's followed the Doctrine of Non-Interference. These include...|
* A Gallifrey where Sorcery is used instead of Science (possibly the Ferutu Universe)
* A Gallifrey where the High Council is as steeped in blood (probably the War in Heaven) and the world was cursed and the children died. (probably the Classic Universe)
* One of these Gallifrey's had the Doctor as the Traveller.
Other Alternate Gallifrey include:
* A Gallifrey were the Doctor returned and led a bloodless revolution.
* Omega has seen an alternate Gallifrey where there was no Rassilon and the Time Lords were Gods because of Omega. The possibility of this alternative universe might have been negated by the existance of Rassilon in the Prime Timeline.
1083?? (after Panacea / probably a few years before Ascension)
President Matthias of Gallifrey I forces every Gallifreyan with the Dogma virus to be quarantined. The Matrix controls the quarantine/incarceration systems for the infected. The infected are incarcerated in time-locked facilities using forbidden technology from the old times that was recovered from Shada. Because of his controversial decisions and their consequences, Matthias had to retire without naming his successor. Matthias underwent several months of self-imposed exile in the wastelands before returning as broken man.
1085?? (while Romana and Narvin are in the Axis)
Omega arrives on Gallifey and takes on the persona of Adjutant Coordinator Tauras of the CIA. He initiates the Pre-Cog Program. Time Lords with the power of foresight (aka precogs) are grouped together to predict the future. Such a program could be interpreted as a violation of the Laws of Time. The Adherents of Ohm begin growing in power and popularity (probably because Omega is influancing things).
1083?? Mind of the Daleks: The Daleks travel back in time and steal the Matrix secrets from Ravolox, so that they can infiltrate the Matrix. The Daleks invade the Matrix. Their prescence partially disables the Matrix because they are drawing power and increasing the virtual entropy. This is slowly killing the Matrix.
1090?? (over 2 years after Reborn / right before Renaissance)
Extermination: The Daleks have invaded the Axis and used it to conquer numerous truncated timelines. The Dalek’s Coordinator predicts which universes will be viable for conquest. When the Daleks from the Prime Timeline invade the alternate Gallifrey that Prime Romana rules, she destroys them and use their gateway to return to the Axis. Leela and Narvin re-take the Axis from the Daleks and seal all the truncated timelines to prevent the Daleks from returning to the Primary Timeline.
1090?? (many years after Panacea)
Renaissance: K-9 returns to the Capitol on Gallifrey. Romana, Narvin, Leela, return to Gallifrey, but ends up inside the Matrix. They meet a data extract matrix projection of Romana’s future third incarnation who was created by her future self. This Matrix projection has created a replica of the Citadel inside the Matrix. She claims that she had come back in time to help Gallifrey survive the future Time War. K-9 starts trying to communicate with Romana II inside the Matrix. By this point Romana II wants the temporal powers to see Gallifrey as the Servants of Time (not Lords), whose objectives are to preserving, upholding, and strengthening the Web of Time.
1090?? (right after Renaissance)
Ascension: Romana returns to Gallifrey and interupts a Presidential inauguration. Valyes was probably the president being sworn when Romana interrupted. At that same point the Daleks insert Slyne (whom they had collected from an alternate Gallifrey in the Axis) into the Capitol. The inauguration will reconvene in 3 spans. The Matrix degrades to the point where it can no longer control the Capitol. Romana is tricked into giving the presidential codes to the Slyne and he uses them to open all the Matrix Doors simultaneously so that the Daleks can invade the Capitol. Romana uses the Matrix simulation of the Citadel to permanently trap the Dalek invasion force within a sealed off part of the Matrix. She then use the back-up biodata archive that Brax took before leaving Gallifrey. By combining it with the uncontaminated biodata files from an alternate Gallifrey, they are able to reboot the Matrix and restore it to full operation. With the exception of Romana, and Narvin, this physically and mentally re-sets the biodata of every Gallifreyan on the planet to their status before the Pandora Devastation began (so sometime before Imperiatrix).
In mistaken attempt to prevent the loss of Romana (who was in fact still alive and in the Citadel), Narvin diverted the 4th Doctor to Skaro at a point before the creation of the Daleks. He then sent Chancellor Valyes back in time to warn the Doctor that that the Daleks could conquer all of time and space. Valyes transmat beam was likely intercepted by the CIA of the 4th Doctor’s era, but, upon hearing Valyes’ warning from the future, Lord Ferain enacted Narvin’s plan.
?? (before Dark Eyes / probably refering to the events of Renaissance and Ascension)
The Time Lords foresee something terrible in their future - probably the Time War.
? (probably after Ascension)
Dead Men's Tales, etc: Romana dispatches Leela to track time breaks on the Earth. She eventually determines that a human named Elliot Payne was trying to harvest all of the Earth's temporal energy to free his wife from an event horizon.
1098.5 (Matrix Date 6818.5 / probably 20 years
Romana probably frees the Daleks who are trapped in a paradox.
(while traveling with no companion / about 900 years after
giving up his name)
1100-1119? (some time after The Girl Who Never Was / almost certainly before the Time War begins / almost certianly after Spore)
Blood of the Daleks: The CIA of Gallifrey IV predicts that a human woman on Earth might become a European dictator that might start Humanity on a galaxy wide conquest of space. To prevent this, the CIA uses a Quantum Crystalizer to repeatedly adjust Luci Miller's history to prevent a build up of negative attitudes. Lord Straxus of the House of Kotris tips off the High Council about this medeling and the Council removes Luci Miller from Earth (using a perception inhibitor on her to make her forget her experiances with the CIA). They place her with the Doctor take care Luci Miller and tell him its part of a witness protection program. The Time Lords set up a shield around northern England in 2006 so that the Doctor can't return Luci home. The also prevent him from leaving her behind in any other time zone. The 8th Doctor travels with Luci. In truth the High Council grabbed the wrong human, and it is Karen Coltraine who threatens the galaxy. By this point the Doctor regrets not preventing the Dalek's creation when he had the chance.
1100-1119? (shortly before Human Resources)
The CIA manipulate the Shinx in an attempt to get them to wipe out the Cybermen on Lonsis. They secretly use a quantum crystalizer to ensure the Cybermen can't win the battle. This device is a type of probability shredder that effectively alters probability in whatever way is nessecary to ensure the desired outcome. The High Council learns of this unauthorized interference both the CIA and the Council agree that none of their people will travel to Lonsis.
1100-1119? (as of Human Resources)
Human Resources: The CIA uses a quantum crystalizer to repeatedly adjust Luci's history to prevent a build up of negative attitudes. They have done this to the point where she would be dangerously unstable if she is placed too close to a quantum crystallizer. For this reason they pull her out of time. By this point the TARDIS hasn't had a funtional state of temporal grace for years.
1101-1120? (centuries after the Doctor's mid-life crisis from the Dr's POV - probably refers to his third incarnation)
The Skull of Sobek: The Doctor claims that he’s not anybody’s champion.
1101-1120? (10 years before the end of VEngence of Morbius)
Sisterhood of the Flame
(about 100 years before the war / after
the rival Cardinal affair is delt with)
The Faction Paradox sets up on Drornid. Faction Paradox begins recruiting Lesser Species. Initiates have their biodata rewritten by the Faction Virus so that they have a human-plus rating. Members of Faction Paradox are sterile. Cousins of the Faction’s can Vortex Walk through time, but it takes a very long time from the traveller’s POV. Little Brothers, and Sisters of the Faction are trained in 4 dimensional guerilla warfare. Hurricanes that have names can develop enough of a public perception that they can be ritualistically ‘talked to’ and ‘hired’ by the Faction. Many Faction Paradox agents have no shadow.
in the organization's history / probably before becoming corrupt at
At this point the family of Faction Paradox considered it to be very important to give even their enemies the proper funeral rites.
1111-1130? (possibly ends 10 years after Sisterhood of the Flame)
Vengence of Moribus: The current Co-ordinator of the CIA on Gallifrey III is Lord Bulek. The Doctor feels that Bulek was doddery even when he was the Doctor's age. In an alternate universe Morbius has trapped the Time Lords on Gallifrey without access to the Power of the Eye of Harmony. Once the Doctor restores their power, the Time Lords travel back in time 62 years to change history by prevent Zarodnix from purchasing Karn. This changes the last 62 years of history. The Doctor, Straxus, and Luci all carry memories of Morbius' empire. Morbius is killed by falling into a chasm but the Doctor manages to use the remote activator for the manipulator to transport himself to the planet Orbis. The activator for the Stellar Manipulator sinks to the ocean floor of Orbis. The activator resembles a medallion. The Sisterhood give the Doctor's TARDIS to the Headhunter. By this point the Doctor's TARDIS no longer has a Recall Circuit. The Doctor spends decades helping the Keltans of Orbis.
1111-1130? (before Night of the Doctor / after Vengence of Morbius)
The Sisterhood know that the Doctor will one day return to Karn.
~1115? ~208 AF? (900 years before The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe)
The TARDIS probably gets a new TARDIS lock. This new lock can be picked by a pin (if the TARDIS is willing?)
(40 years after the Master's previous visit)
The Master returns to the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII). His current body is that of a very old man. The Chancellery Guard captures him before he could leave his TARDIS. The Master is imprisoned in the Hall of Addresses.
1116 (35 years before the War begins)
The Head of the Presidency leaves the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII) with another Time Lord and several guards on a five day mission to establish the Faraway Colony at the coordinates (probably) given by the Master as the home of the Enemy. The Master’s execution is scheduled in five days. Academician Ambits serves as President in his absence.
1116 (5 days after the President leaves)
The Faraway Declaration occurs when the President's head materializes (to the sound of a Timeships dimensional stabilizer) with the message “We are not amused” in the head’s mouth. (Probably using Praxis) the head had been kept alive for the entire lifespan of the universe before being killed and returned to Gallifrey. The Time Lords formally acknowledge the Enemy as a rival power.
1116?? (when the preparations for war formally being? / before the Time War starts)
The Dark Days of Gallifrey begin.
after Death Comes to Time from her POV? / a fair amount of time before
Ace begins working for the CIA and Romana on Gallifrey. Due to several alterations in her timeline she will eventually longer remembers how or when she came to be there. She has her own TARDIS and Romana ensured lot of freedoms not granted to regular Time Lords. Ace does a lot of interventions where she prevents worlds from developing time travel. The CIA like her because she is human and gives them plausible deniability. Secretly the CIA leadership consider her to be their best agent. Could this be the Cone Ace from the story Lungbarrow?
(6 days after the President leaves)
The weak-willed male Time Lord Acadamian Umbaste becomes the Lord President of the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII). The Master is made a member of the High Council. Preparation for the War begins in earnest.
The CIA begins to make plans to become the Celestis because they think the Time Lords might lose the War.
?? (before Dark Eyes / possibly during the second Morbius Crisis?)
The Time Lords test a new weapon on Shrangor that stops the regenerative process using retro-genitor particles. This prevents any Gallifreyan from regenerating anywhere on this world.
(20 years before Nevermore)
The Earth military release a biological weapon knows as the Red Death on Corinth Minor. This weapon is so dangerous that the planets population ends up asking the Time Lords for help to deal with it. The Time Lords pass the planet through a cloud of super-violet radiation to sterilize it. The planet is renamed Nevermore and becomes a momorial on the futility of war. For his part in Red Death, General Morella Wendigo is imprisoned on Nevermore.
years before the War)
As part of the mobilization the first Academician for Game Logic is appointed.
1121? (a few
decades before the War)
On the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII) the Academicians for Game Logic invent Postmodernism. This forms the core of the most rapid advancements in Time Lord civilization in millions of years. Devonire is one of the first Academicians. He is also one of the Homeworld's greatest diplomats. He becomes known as the Reconciler.
? (before Storming of Avalon)
The Time Lords continue to be worried about the People.
? (before the Celestis)
The event of the War interrupts the CIA’s experiment with the Fendahl Predator. It is allowed to evolve beyond the planed cut-off date. The Predator continues to evolve until it is powerful enough to destroy the entire Universe in a day.
learning that the enemy
is capable of fighting them)
The Time Lords finally get over their shock about learning of the existence of the enemy.
(before Storm of Avalon / after the Cloneworlds are created)
Romana is given the title War Queen of a Gallifrey I located in the Kastarbourus Sector. By this point the existence of the Cloneworlds are know to the people of Gallifrey as is Romana's title as Mistress of the Nine Gallifreys.
The Third Romana (Juliet Landau)
(before Shadows of Avalon
/ before Luna Romana flash-forward)
Romana regenerates for the third time. She acquires the Prydon Seal on her ankle. One of Patience's bodies also has a Prydon Seal on her ankle. This new incarnation is much less pro-intervention, and tends to keep Gallifrey isolated.
?? (sometime before Intervension Earth)
The people of Gallifrey believe that Leela betrayed Romana.
before Intervention Earth)
Omega probably steals the Hand of Omega from Gallifrey’s armory and takes it to Earth, where he uses it create the singularity. Using it some humans create a singularity appears in Mutter’s Spiral that is growing exponentially and draining energy from the Universe. The High Council fears it could threaten the entire fabric of space-time. The walls between universes are collapsing. Every version of Alternate Time that the Precogs gaze into shows Gallifrey falling. Romana issues a presidential write that prevents the CIA from interfering with the anomaly.

Intervention Earth: Rexxendrogan (Rexx) is an adherent of Ohm. He uses Ace’s link with the Hand of Omega to open a time bridge to the antimatter universe. Omega uses this link to seize control of the body of the Time Lord Rexxendrogan (Rexx). Omega leaves Romana, Narvin, Ace, and Lukas behind in the universe of antimatter and escapes into Normal Space. While Lukas holds the time-bridge stable, Romana and the others pursue him, killing Romana’s TARDIS in the process. Braxiatal rescues them. Using Rexx’s body, Omega travels back into Gallifrey’s recent past and begins working as Adjutant Coordinator Tauras in the Capitol. By this point, Narvin has been in this body for several centuries at least.

The House Military begins to form after several Houses argue that the Watch and the Chancellery Guard are an inadequate defense force. Under the guidance of the Master, the House Military takes the form of an intimate and exclusive group of the more aggressive and pro-active Houses. This army is commanded by the Time War Council. The War Council is destinguished with a different type of ceremonial collar. The standards for becoming a Junior Time Lord are reduced so that recruitment quotas can be met. Warriors receive only basic training in temporal theory and TARDIS operation. Training now takes less then a century. It is organized into divisions based on time of creation rather then the specialty of skill or field of operation. Each generation is called a Wave. The events of the War are numbered by the number of the Wave involved in them. A Strike Force is made up of 12 Regen-Inf warriors.
few decades before Shadows of Avalon)
The looms of Gallifrey I are put into maximum production (and beyond), to produce as many Gallifreyan Warriors as possible. By the time of the Final Battle there will be 2,470,000,000 children on the final Gallifrey.
? (Before the War begins)
The First Wave of the House Military is produced. It is made up of Time Lords and Gallifreyans, many of which had served in the Watch or the Chancellery Guard. The newly loomed were designed to be mass produced, disciplined, regimented, and uniform. Cousins of the minor Newblood House Xianthellipse warn against this uniformity.
Ryssal of the House of Lungbarrow joins the Chancellery Watch on Gallifrey I.

Het Linc becomes the City of the Saved’s ambassador to Gallifrey VIII.
Ryssal of the House of Lungbarrow regenerates for the first time. His new body has malformed teeth.
1132 (225 AF)
Het Linc convinces many Gallifreyans to defect to the City of the Saved. Unfortunately they are rejected by the City Council and forced to leave. It is possible they become the City’s Secret Architects. Het Linc’s position as ambassador is abolished.

The CIA steal the technique of memory cloning from the enemy (this is probably the mind probing tech used on the Doctor in Resurrection of the Daleks).

The Academy that served as the primary recruiting source for the CIA withdraws from the Academic Roster.
1132 (19 years before the war)
Fearing destruction and erasure in the War, the Celestial Intervention Agency of the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII), creates Mictlan, a cyst of galled space-time cut off from the Time Winds. It is constructed of block transfer engines and computational matrices. Mictlan becomes a danger because it could attract the Swimmers to the Multiverse. Using the same technique as Grandfather Paradox the CIA erases itself from history and changes itself into conceptual thought patterns (using the Faction's Force Paradox technique) right before the war and escapes to Mictlan. It is possible that they enlisted the aid of one of the Godfather, or the Lieutenants of the House of Paradox. This removal also removes the Academy that had withdrawn a few days earlier. The non-CIA students and faculty are probably used by the Celestis to create the first conceptual entities. Once there they rename themselves the Celestial House or the Celestis and set up the Last Parliament. The Celestis views themselves as raw and terrible gods of war. Their agents are known as Archons. The Celestis use their Mark of Indenture to recruit numerous lesser species to worship them. The Time Lords view the CIA as criminals and traitors. Investigator Four is one of the CIA agents who journey to Mictlan (he would have been killed otherwise). He takes it upon himself to keep an eye on the Celestis. The Celestis is split between remaining neutral, supporting the Enemy and supporting the Time Lords. Time Lords who encounter the Celestis Investigators usually flee in terror or end up dead.
? (by the time the Time War begins)
By this point all TARDIS Types older then the Type 59 have been decomissioned. While earlier types can be still be found in tranport museumes, anything before the Type 30 is virtually impossible to find anywhere.
?? (after the Master is cloned)
The 101 Project begins. Lolita (like the Doctor’s TARDIS) was unique because she was a hybrid. She is only half TARDIS on her Mother’s side made them unique. As part of the 101-Project Lolita has the Master make special changes to her heart so that she can fulfill her destiny to evolve into a humanoid form. Lolita is the only 45-Form that does this. The changes were part of Mother (probably the Matrix)’s plan.
1132 (19 years before the start of the War)
The 101 Form is slowly programmed with biodata waldoes as it developed. This TARDIS is designed to be "sentient." it survived birth but was a screaming terrified ship that was completely beyond the Time Lords control. The 101-Form is regarded as the first Renegade TARDIS. Officially it believed to have been destroyed but it might have been imprisoned or escaped. The 101-Form might be Lolita.
1132? (After the Master modifies her
Lolita is planning to reveal her abilities to the Time Lords when circumstances are such that they can't stop her. It is at this point she plans to take control and fulfill Mother’s plans. Lolita is at least partially responsible for getting the Time Lords into the Time War. By this point Lolita is no longer traveling or linked with the Master.

The Type 94 War TARDIS is created.

the first TARDIS / 18 years before the
On the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII) TARDISes are now accepted as weapons of war. Because of the failure of the Type 101, work begins on the Type 90 War TARDIS. These are the first military TARDISes ever built. One of the reasons the Time Lords never created War TARDISes before was that they didn’t want to give destructive capabilities to an incomprehensible intelligence. These capsules look at everything stategically, and view every time zone as a potential battlefield. They follow their Time Lord's instructions to their own (and his) destruction if nessecary. In their default state the War TARDISes appear to be gold space ships with spikes.
(after Shada is rediscovered / probably while the
Type 90 is being designed)
Murder Most Temporal: At an Time Lord Observation Timestation (probably Zenobia) the CIA begins testing a prototype Temporal Vector Eliminator. This device is designed to delete its target from history, but instead shifts the entire timestation out of phase with Gallifrey Relative Time by about 24 hours. A member of the High Council investigates this research and is secretly killed by the CIA. This technology could be used to breach Gallifrey's past.
(millennia after the last Type 53 is decommissioned
/ while frantically preparing for possible crisis / Gallifrey faces its
darkest hour / after Romana regenerates for the 2nd time)
Luna Romana: All trans-dimensional berths are going to be used for the new generation of battle TARDISes. As part of these preparations, the Time Lords will need every maintenance level and the Quadrigger banks are finally decommissioned. Romana personally oversees this to remind herself why she is leading Gallifrey into war. By this point Romana has seen a thousand universes.
1132~ (the same time as the 101-Form is
The first Type 91x TARDISes (prototypes for the Type 91) are created. These TARDISes have a minimal awareness of humanoid life. Their default shapes are deliberately large and eye-catching usually appearing to be gold space ships with spikes. They often assume the appearance of cathedrals. They have Vortex Rams (for entering and leaving time spurs and eddies), Artron Pattern Recognition Analyzers (for detecting cloned duplicates), Temporal Airlocks (for linking up with other TARDISes while in vortex).
1140 (390 years
after Deadly Assassin )
The mafia organization InCorporate sets up operations on Dronid to sell the Gallifreyan technology left over from the rival Cardinal affair. Incorporate is actually gathering intelligence for the Enemy. The organization gains power and the only criminal powers that don't join it still adapt to work by its philosophy.
The Time Lords attempt to alter Dronid's history and discover that the Enemy has crystallized its past into their own Web of Time. At the start of the War carefully developed plans and sublte manipulation was the prefered tactic of the CIA.
1141.9~ (400 years after Deadly Assassin /
slightly less then 10 years before the War)
Realizing that InCorperate is an intelligence gathering group for the Enemy the Time Lords have an Interventionist take control of the local Faction Paradox gang. The gang war of alliances and conceptual warfare that results is a small scale model of the future War in Heaven.
1142 (392 years
after Deadly Assassin / before the loss
of their homeworld, 2000 years before the founding of Anathema)
The Faction Paradox becomes corrupt and starts dealing in arms, slaves and other criminal activities. They begin selling Time Technology to any race that can afford it. The Time Lords learn that the Faction is selling Time Lord technology to other species and destroy the Faction’s adopted planet. Shuncuker is the last scion of the Faction, the daughter of all four of the Grandfathers lietenants, and the last person to escape the destruction of the Faction's Homeworld. She is eventually captured by the Time Lords and imprisoned on Shada. The few family members who escaped the attack scatter through out space and time. Some of the survivors relocate to the Eleven-Day Empire. They continued to sell Time Lord technology but secretly through cults such as the Order of the Rectangle, the Black Sun, and The Luminus. The Faction makes the Eleven Day Empire its new home. While the Faction has thousands of cousins, only 630 Faction Mother and Fathers live at Eleven-Day Empire (September 1752 AD). In the absence of the Grandfather, Godfather Morlock holds the title of Acting Emergency Speaker of House Paradox. The children of the Faction are raised in The Loop. The Loop is made of a single second from the 11 Day Empire that has been endlessly looped back on itself. It serves as a safe haven for children and young teens. The children’s parents will live within the Loop, while raising them.
Massive anomalies are occurring in the time lines and temporal pulses begin washing over Gallifrey I. As a result most of the Gallifreyans begin believing in superstition and magic. The Initiates and Junior Time Lords on all of the Nine Gallifreys begin secretly joining cults. The Faction Paradox, the Devotees of Apeiron, and the cult of Eutenoyar are particularly popular. Others include, Ferisiz, Thrayke, Sabjatric, Rungar, the Pythian Heresy, Klade, and the Legend of Cuwirti.
The Time Lords (probably the Matricians) of Romana's GallifreyI begin receiving visions of an alternity (alternate history) where all but 5 Time Lords have been reduced to apes that live on the edges of humanities perception of Time itself. Most Time Lords interpret this vision as a symbolic representation of the their own reality. The idea that this might be a prediction of the future is literally unthinkable. Some become consumed with this vision.

Orbis: The Doctor's sonic screwdrive is rusty and doesn't work well. The Headhunter brings the TARDIS and Luci to Orbis and the Doctor begins traveling the Universe again.
NOTE: Do to constraints on the Doctor's timeline, 600 Orbis Years probably is unlikely to be more then 25 Gallifreyan years. Alternately all of the Big Finish adventures take place after the Doctor's resurrection in the City of the Saved.
The Beast of Orlok: By this point the Time Lords are policing policing illegal biological technology in addition to temporal tech.

Earthly Child: Desperate for some help with the reconstruction of human civilization. The TARDIS detects Susan's request for help and the Doctor meets up with Susan and his grandson Alex. He offers to have Alex trained at the Academy on Gallifrey but Alex chooses to stay with his mother. At the Doctor's suggestion, the Iborians begin helping Earth rebuild.

The Monk changes history on Crestus by killing two people in an avalanche. Luci realizes what a monster the Monk really is and demands he take her back to her own time zone.
1118-1139? Deimos/The Ressurection of Mars: Tamsin Drew becomes the Monk's new travelling compaion. The Monk decides to form an alliance with the Daleks to stop the Doctor. The Doctor believes that the destruction of Halcyon by the Ice Warriors (and the resulting 20 billion deaths) in the 33rd century is one of the greatest tragedies in the history of the universe.

Relative Dimensions: The Doctor and Luci celebrate christmas with Susan and Alex Campbell. Lucie leaves with Alex to see the Earth of the 22nd century. The Doctor stops saving all the rooms of his previous companions on the holding ring, and deletes them all. He does save a room for Alex and plans to give him his TARDIS at some point in the future. By this point the Doctor has had roughly 50 travelling companions (so his name probably has about 50 sylablles).

The Dalek Time Controller has discovered a point in space-time when all of the Amethyst Viruses will concentrate into one clould. The Daleks of the 22nd century plan to install a time warp engine on the Earth so that they can use it collect and transport the Amethyst Viruses. They will then be able to infect and destroy all life on any world they wish. The Monk is working to save all of Earth's greatest artifacts so that the can become the richest man in all of creation. Susan doesn't recognize the Monk. Alex Campbell is exterminated by the Daleks, and Lucie Miller dies destroying the Time Engine the Dalek’s were trying to place in Earth’s core. The Daleks kill Tamsin and the Monk realizes how much it hurts to lose someone he cares for. He saves the Doctor and Susan from the Daleks and promises the Doctor that he will never cross the Doctor's path again. The Doctor vows to take a more active role in protecting history from temporal marauders. He also claims that, some day, he will travel back in time and save Luci Miller.

Dark Eyes: At this point the Doctor believes that a Time War between the Daleks and the Time Lords is one of the most unlikeliest things he's ever heard of. The 8th Doctor begins travelling with Molly O'Sullivan. He probably won't have another proper companion until after Night of the Doctor.
Dark Eyes: A future regenerated form of Straxus tries to make amends for the CIA and Time Lord’s actions by effectively D-Matting the Time Lords from history. He plots to use retro-genitor particles to travel throughout the Vortex and re-write every Gallifreyan’s biodata so that their civilization never become the Lords of Time. He enlists the aid of the Daleks for this and they construct a Relativity Map on Shrangor so that they can view all of time and space. They plan to use it to replace all Time Lord DNA with Dalek DNA. After being warned by the High Council, Straxus’ younger incarnation attempts to sabotage this by altering things so it the Daleks that are dematerialized from history. Breaking his earlier promise to himself, the Doctor intervenes and saves the Dalek timeline. The younger Straxus is killed, preventing the changes made by the older incarnation from ever happening. The Daleks pledge to find another way to destroy the Time Lords.

Saving Agent Ryann: Members of one of the more militant Houses create a chronovore that can delete people from history by eating them. It can destroy all history on a planet at a rate of about 7 years pers second. A member of the High Council tried to stop it and was deleted. The only surviving part of the original timeline is his son, a CIA agent named Ryann. The chronovor is pursuing him destroying every world it arrives on. The Daleks beleive that Ryann is the cause of this destruction and so they pursue him through the western spiral arm of the Stellian Galaxy. Realizing that he might have been the victum of some new temporal weapon, the Lady President has him brought back to Gallifrey. Unfortunately the creature follows and attacks the Capitol, fortunately the creature is defeated.

Lord President Umbaste of the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII) goes to the Eye of Harmony and opens his biodata to it in an attempt to gain a vision of the future. After a year in a fugue-state with his biodata disconnected from his body he awakes. All he would say after awakening was the word “One” again and again. After saying the word for several days he disintegrated himself. In reality he was killed, but only House Dvora knew the idenity of the killer. This information was recorded in the secret minutes of their house. .
The War King (aka the Master)
(less than 10,000 years since TID / 30
years after Umbaste becomes President)
The High Council erases all records of the Master’s time as a criminal (leaving very little of his history left). The Master replaces the current President on the Homeworld (aka Gallifrey VIII). He is inaugurated as Lord President of Gallifrey - War King of the Nine Gallifreys. Though the Master didn't ask them to, the title of the Lord President of Gallifrey is changed to War King (or Queen). The Master is considered to be the perfect warrior to lead the fight during the Time War, because he was one of the only Time Lords who knows what being in a war means. The Master/War King was alive during the Sontaran/Rutan negotiations. The President is male with white wispy hair and a beard. The War King considers himself to be very old and wears the body of an old man to remind himself and others of this. He wears black robes cut in the standard presidential manner. The only decoration he allows in his office is a disassembled Hyper-Message-Cube with serves as a connection to his past. He begins forming the House Military and continues the tradition of non-communication with the other 8 Homeworlds. The President of the Time Lords puts out a call for many renegade Time Lords to assist him. Many answer this call. Even the most corrupt of them were given full pardons. Two of these renegades teaches at the Academy. One is male and handles combat training (the War Cheif?), the other is female and handles studies in Atron energy (probably the Rani). Programs are created of these lessons that is fed into the minds of every loomling withing 10 minutes of being 'born.' The War King is popular with the troops because he keeps the Time War Council off their backs.
1146~ (After the Faraway Declaration /
years before the Battle of Dronid / They started doing this before
the Nine Homeworlds Project)
The Time Lords are continuing to founding several colonies. .Both the Time Lords and the Enemy begin secretly planting defensive systems and troops on strategic worlds throughout the Spiral Politic.
One Group of Gallifreyans build several fortresses on Simia KK98 to use as a retreat for the whole race if Gallifrey was to be destroyed. It is one of the few colonies that the Time Lords have. The fortresses appear to be giant towers made of rough rock and are miles high.
One group of Time Lords construct war machines in the form of big flying brass colored spheres. They are operated by aliens who have been modified by the Time Lords. The war machines can travel short "distances" through time. The Time Lord warships are massive spires of gold with corkscrews at the tip. They are probably powered by black holes and can withstand the point blank detonation of a star. These black holes are much more powerful then the ones found on a regular TARDIS. The fleets are made up of at least a thousand warships.
The Human named Khiste begins working as an off-world agent for one group of Time Lords. They give him the Rassilon Imprimatur, healing machines that allowed him to regenerate, and install several other "Biological Advantages" is his body. He regenerates 3 times, and each time his body "evolves," becoming less human.
The Eremites promised to return during the time of Gallifrey's greatest need. If they did return at this point they could have provided the rituals to open the Sphinx Bottle Universe.
? (right before "Dead Romance")
The Time Lords of one of the Gallifrey's don't believe they can defeat the enemy in the coming Time War. They also believe that the enemy of the Time Lords is going to totally recreate the Universe. The Time Lords (from the Foreman Universe) have spent years trying to learn how to enter the Sphinx Bottle Universe without letting it "leak." They discover that to enter the Sphinx Bottle they must use the rituals of the Sphinxes. They don't know all the rituals so they "cheat" a little using technology. This lets in all the beings that have been stranded in the Space-Time Vortex. The Time Lords send Chris Cwej into it to open a stable "door-way." To do this he creates three clones, named Christine Summerfield, to be sacrificed. One of them escapes. There are thousands and thousands of prisoners in Shada by this point
1147 (March 30, 2596)
Earth quarantines Dellah.
Dead Romance: Under orders from War Queen Romana and the War King, Chris Cwej arranges a new peace treaty between the Time Lords the Daleks known as the Acts of Master Restitution. They will both be allies in the coming War with the unknown enemy. This treaty will be abandoned when the Daleks reveal that they are the enemy in the Last Great Time War. Cwej also arranges a new treaty with The People at around the same time. It states that the Time Lords and the People will work to contain the Ferutu from enter this univere. Cwej arranges a treaty, which gives the Kings of, Space the Rassilon Imprimatur (in the form of a bunch of clones). This one of the few times in the history of the Universe that the Time Lords have given their time travel secrets to aliens.
All the beings that have been lost in the vortex form one super biomass in the Bottle. In response the Matrix might have put all the Time Lords on alert. All the prisoners in Shada might have been released and reengineered to be living weapons for the Time Lords. The beings from the Vortex unify to form the "Horror," and try to destroy all life in the Sphinx Bottle Universe. Christine Summerfield meets Father Kreiner (who is part of the Horror) and convinces it to give the Bottle Universe a 30 year trial period.
Chris Cwej finishes the sacrifice, which fully opens the Bottle Universe. The Time Lords send millions of Gallifreyans and Alien Agents to the Bottle Universe Earth (Oct 12, 1970 AD). The Time Lords ride genetically engineer creatures. Not all Gallifreyans enter the bottle. Some form other colonies with the intention of fighting the Gods to the bitter end. The Time Lords on the Bottle Earth use machines to construct cities in less then a day. These machines are the size of the Isle of Wight. The Time Lords also begin re-engineering the surviving humans.
at least a few years after they steal the Bottle
/ possibly at the time Dead Romance occurs)
The Time Lords of Gallifrey make a plan to hide a Survival Team of themselves inside I.M. Foreman's Universe-in-a-Bottle. This group will carry on their culture in case the “gods” attack Gallifrey. The Time Lords are divided within themselves. They don't all agree about destroying the culture of the Bottle Universe. Those that have visited the Universe in a Bottle describe it as "messy and unfinished." They've spent a year trying to learn how to enter the Sphinx Bottle Universe without letting it "leak." The Time Lords send a colony of Gallifreyans and Time Lords into the Universe in a Bottle. The Time Lords on the Bottle Earth use machines to construct cities in less then a day. These machines are the size of the Isle of Wight. Most Gallifreyans remain behind.
THE I.M. FOREMAN UNIVERSE IN A BOTTLE
author's notes at the beginning of Dead Romance more or less state
that all of the New Adventure (and presumably the Missing
Adventure) series of novel occur inside Foreman's Universe In
a Bottle. If this is true it would explain why some of the
Doctor's adventures seem changed in the new series. Foreman's
Bottle is eventually unfolded inside the Vortex and released into the Primary
(or Classic) Timeline in The Ancestor Cell meaning
that the continuity of both universe would mingle and merge
together. This could result in the changing of several of
the Doctor's stories and could explain the multiple versions of
Human Nature and Blink. On version of the story would be the one
that occurred inside the Foreman Bottle and one would be the
version that occurred once the continuity merged.

NOTE: This story is similar enough to the televised Human Nature novel that the two must be connected in some way. I postulate that this is the version of the story that occurred before I.M. Foreman's Universe-in-a-Bottle was integrated with the Classic Timeline in "The Ancestor Cell." It is possible that the TARDIS had a hand in ensuring that Joan still ended up falling in love with the Doctor and Timothy was inspired by the Doctor.

Because several criminals escape by equipping themselves with secondary nervous systems that were immune to freezing, the Time Lords alter the way prisoners are immobilized on Shada. Now their nervous systems wired into a self-repeating time frame via the tattoo on their arm. The prisoners are kept in a time frame out of sync with the outside the world. Some of the prisoners dream about their pasts.

Despite Cwej’s wish to become a Regen-Inf trooper, the Time Lords regenerated him into a middle-aged infiltration agent.
?? (after Nineveh
/ probably before the Corsair was killed)
The Watcher of Nineveh leaves (or dies). Without a Watcher, House begins to lure in any TARDIS it can find into the bubble universe called Nineveh. It uses the bodies of the hundreds of Time Lords it kills to create his Patchwork People. House would drain the TARDIS of the energy in its Heart. In order to eat a TARDIS House must first remove the timeship’s consciousness otherwise the TARDIS’s defense mechanisms would destroy House. Deleting the consciousness while it was still connected to the TARDIS translevel powers systems would blow a whole in the universe (this might have been how House first ended up in the plug-hole universe.) Instead, House pulls out the TARDIS Matrix and places it in a living receptacle and feeds on the TARDIS. The sentient matrix is placed in a human body so that he would burn out while a safe distance from the main control room. The wrecked TARDISes would then fall apart. By the time of The Doctor's Wife, there are the remains of 100 TARDISes on House. All of these TARDISes were female.
The Time Lords realize there are some parts of the Space-Time Continuum that they can no longer monitor.

is killed by House)
The Time Lords undertake the Fourth Universal Survey Expedition to chart the Universe. The Corsair is part of this project.
?? (the Doctor knows what his last/ninth incarnation looked like / possibly before the Time War)
The Corsair is gathering data for the Fourth Universal Survey Expedition when his TARDIS is captured and eaten by House. The Corsair is killed right after recording a distress message in a hypercube. The Corsair was a friend of the Doctors. His current incarnation is a well built man with large arms.
In violation of the Laws of Time, The Posthuman Era becomes linked with the local time on the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII). Mrs. Foyle rediscovers and begins using the Labyrinth that was originally taken from Gallifrey by the Eremites. Once this is known, the Time Lords, the Celestis, Faction Paradox, and even the Enemy make use of the Labyrinth for the transporting and storing supplies and for communications.
1147 (2596 AD / After the Gallifrey audios and many of the
Benny novels / Romana knows of it in Shada)
Tears of the Oracle: Even with Time Lord technology, the People have trouble developing feasible time travel (due, in part to a lack of psionic talent). The God of the People believes that there is still an 87% chance that the People and the Time Lords will go to war and that Benny and Braxiatel will play a vital role in the war with the “gods.” Because of the damage he suffered in the Bottle Universe, Chris is force-regenerated and sent to Delfus-Orestes. Benny releases a creature that causes uncertainty on Dellah which reduces the probability of the war. The Braxiatel Collection is created on KS-159 by Irving Braxiatel. The asteroid KS-159 was chosen because it had a temporal leak that provided vast amounts of power. Braxiatel hoped to some day use this power to restore the Time Lords.
1147 (2596 AD)
Where Angels Fear: The God of the People withdraws all of it’s agents from Mutter’s Spiral to abide by the Treaty with the Time Lords. This is known as Operation Ragnarok. The Time Lords order Irving Braxiatel back to the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII), and take his TARDIS when he refuses. The remaining “gods” wake and spread there faiths across Dellah. 4,000 people are evacuated from Dellah and the world is quarantined. Bernice Summerfield is missing, and presumed dead by the Time Lords.
By the 26th century possibly all of space time are threatened by the “gods.”
1148 (2597 AD)
Twilight of the Gods: The Time Lords and the People agree to destroy Dellah using a Doomesday Probe that will release entropy waves for 5 seconds which will sterilize the surrounding sector. The probe works by A plan is made to send the planet Dellah to the Alternate Universe that is the home of the “gods.” The Doomsday Probe is released but before it can reach its target and Dellah is shifted into the Alternate Universe. The Ferutu, who are potential Time Lords from a parallel universe. In that timeline, Gallifrey was destroyed at the time of Rassilon and the Ferutu become the first Lords of Time around 1 billion AD. The Ferutu did their best to optimise their history, ensuring that the Daleks and Cybermen both worked to create a utopian universe. The Ferutu physically regress Chris to age 13. They also capture Jason and threaten to kill him if Benny doesn’t let them invade her universe. Benny escapes and leaves the Ferutu and Jason trapped in the alternate universe. Braxiatel establishes a University on Vremnya and Benny is appointed head of the archeology department. Both the Time Lords and the People retreat to their respective hideouts in fear that the “gods” might appear again.
Snajira is born on Dronid. He becomes a member of the Faction Paradox.
year before the War)
The Time Lords believe that they have begun to learn the nature of the Enemy. This information is probably false. The form of the enemy will keep changing throughout the War.
1151~ (at the start of the Time War)
As the Time War begins, the remaining CIA agents (on other Gallifrey cloneworlds) greatly increase their political power as they are seen as the only ones with any experiance with temporal marauders. Many become flashy heroic agents who's victories are wildly circulated by the High Council in the interest of building moral. When working with other temporal powers they are adament that they be put in charge of every situation.
Shadows of Avalon)
A former Patrexian named Cavisadoratrelundar (Cavis the One Hearted) from the House of Dvora completes her 30 field mission while still in her first incarnation. Cavis and the partner Gandar are well known for their ruthlessness in accomplishing missions. Cavis has probably been a member of the CIA for about a 1000 years.
By this point most of the High Council of Gallifrey is male (Romana finds males easier to manipulate). This includes Vice-President Timon, Chancellor of Time Past Fremest, Chancellor of Parallel Branastigert, Chancellor of Time Future Djarshar (Patrexian), and a female Chancellor of Time Present (probably Theorasdavoramilonithene). Since Chancellors are also the official Ambassadors of Gallifrey each of these new Chancellor's is probably tasked with representing the Great Houses to the temporal powers of the past, present, future, and parallel realities.
1150?? (after TID / after Gallifrey VII is created)
Homunculette is loomed on Gallifrey VII. Homunculette was explicitly loomed (or trained at the academy) to be one of the High Council’s servants.
1150 (400 years after Deadly Assassin)
The Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII) predicts a a new development in TARDISes. The Type 102 which will be the mother of the first Type 103 TARDIS. The Type 103’s will be essential to Time Lords during the War with the Enemy.
The 102-Form TARDIS
(the year the War begins from Gallifrey's POV)
Storming of Avalon (from Gallifrey's POV): The CIA agents Cavisadoratrelundar and Gandarotethetledrax are dispatched to observe the creation of the first Type 102 TARDIS. Since this is much earlier in the Doctor's relative history, the arrest is a violation of the Laws of Time. The last operational Type 40 Time Travel Capsule (the Doctor’s TARDIS) appears to be destroyed. Gandarotethetledrax regenerates into a body that is part Silurian. Laura Tobin (Compassion) becomes the first and only Type 102 TARDIS. Her interior is only big enough to carry several thousand people and she has total physical control over her passengers. She refers to herself only as Compassion from henceforth. Compassion, the Doctor and Fitz flee the Time Lords who need Compassion as breeding stock for the coming War.
? (after Storming of Avalon)
The Time Lords of Gallifrey hide I.M. Foreman's Universe-in-a-Bottle in the Space-Time Vortex. Unknown to the Time Lords the four dimensional fottle "unfolds" in the four dimensional Vortex, becoming a Klein Bottle and releasing its energy. The Doctor's TARDIS survives its destruction by rebuilding itself around the leaking Bottle Universe. It absorbs this energy and uses it to sustain itself while it drifts in the Space-Time Vortex for over 5000 years. Effectively the TARDIS acts as a Paradox Machine for the Bottle Timeline.
The War King fails in his attempts to recruit Compassion.
Attempts to create another 102-Form using other members of the Remote are a failure because they don’t have access to the Doctor’s TARDIS.
before Banqo Legacy)
The Time Lords (of both Gallifrey and the Homeworld) use quantum extrapolation with a probability matrix to determine where the Doctor will go. They come up with 100,000 possibilities. An agent is placed at each possibility with an Atron Inhibitor. (1798 AD) Cuthbert Simpson arrives and sets up an Atron Inhibitor to catch the Type 102 and the Doctor.
1151 (after Ancestor Cell / right before
the beginning of the War)
The War King meets with Compassion and makes a deal for her to assist in the Type 103-Form breeding program.
? (1898 AD)
The Banquo Legacy (from Gallifrey's POV): The Doctor is trapped for a short time by Simpson's Atron Inhibitor. (This happens before the Burning from the Doctor's POV)
1151 (after the first 102-Form but before
Compassion helps with the 103-Project)
The House of Dvora approves attempts to create TARDIS Familiars, which have the intelligence of higher, non-sentient, animals.
The Time Lords of Gallifrey acquire an incredibly advanced Temporal Scanner from their own future and use it. Psivestigator Tragdorvigan uses the E-Monitor to scan for the Enemy's first strike.
The High Council of Gallifrey declares superstition treasonable.
The edges of the Panoptican on Gallifrey become a market place. Several beggars live there.
? (right before the beginning of the War)
At this time Type 60 TARDISes are still found in use on the Nine Homeworlds.
? (before the first battle)
Reality Bombs and Misinformation Camps are used to keep the truth of the war hidden from the people of Gallifrey. The Reality Bomb works on the same principles as the Time Destructor, by aging matter till the elections and weak and strong nuclear forces crumble and the atoms fall appart.
(shortly before Ancestor Cell)
The Doctor's Type 40 TARDIS (from before The Burning) arrives over Romana's Gallifrey. Its interior dimensions are mapped on to exterior so it appears as a giant flower of remembrance, made of bone. It is about the same size of the Capitol Dome. It at the center of the temporal anomalies that are effecting Gallifrey. This effect extends throughout all the parallel universes. The Time Lords use the power of the Eye of Harmony to try to contain the effect. The energy from the Bottle Universe (within the TARDIS) begins to draw the Ancestor Cell to Gallifrey. This Gallifrey hasn't heard about the Doctor working as a council member on another Gallifrey.
By this point the Time Lord Inverventionist agent on Dronid has gone insane.
1151~ (probably after the CIA agents start becoming 'heroic')
Lord Flashheart's the Name...: The CIA agent known as Flashheart secretly creates a threat to the entire universe so that he can be seen to save it.
A Time Lord Civil Servant departs Dronid and is captured by the Krotons.
1151~ While The form of the enemy will keep changing throughout the War, some force or entity keeps ensuring that the Last Great Time War happens. The Time Lords end up naming this force the Catalyst. Some speculate that the Catalyst was Rassilon, or the Eternal known as Death, or Matrix, but nobody really knows.
(a few day before the War begins)
The War King advises several Houses to review their militia's for battle.
1151 (a few day before the War begins)
The first Type 90 TARDISes are deployed. They are massive brass colored spheres with their Time Lord operator permanently installed in with in them. They have better sheilds and security systems then the Type 89. Using their mathematical mass they can block off areas of space-time from entrance or exit by other time travelers. They are also capable of causing sever damage to the continuum but are primarily used as blockades. They have no ranged or precision weapons any sort. No known Human (or post human) weapon can destroy a War era TARDIS. These new TARDISes are equipped with Chaotic Limiters, which adjust the pilot's affect on time "by changing his reality quotient.” They are set for lower settings for scouting missions and higher settings for assaults. The Time Lords suspect that the Enemy is capable of much higher reality quotient settings then they are. The first Type 90s are deployed near (in a historical sense) the planet Dronid.
The Time Lord warships are massive spires of gold with corkscrews at the tip. They are probably powered by black holes. The fleets are made up of at least a thousand warships. These black holes are much more powerful then the ones found on a regular TARDIS.
(right before the first battle)
Qixotl (Drax) is stranded on Dronid when his stolen TARDIS pops a Dematerialization Circuit.
The Enemy assaults and conquers Dronid. They plan to use it as a bridgehead for further attacks. The Time Lords of the Homeworld (Gallifrey VIII) designate Dronid (or Drornid as its sometime known) as War Zone One and prepare to launch a big offensive. This is a pivotal point in the War. At the start of the War carefully developed plans and sublte manipulation was the prefered tactic of the CIA.
The Time Lords ally with a group of Gabrielideans. They are equipped with Gallifreyan technology and used as Troops in the War.
1151 (2 days
before the first battle / The Doctor is
older then 1019 years / while he is using a TARDIS that looks like a
Police Box / before visiting the Celestis)
The Time Lords ask the Doctor to help them at Dronid. By this point the Doctor will be well over 1500 years old an will have acquired very strange Bio-Data and a formidable reputation. By this point the Doctor might be the last member of the House of Lungbarrow. The Doctor has a winklegruber neural parameter predictor, which works by telling you the last place you'd think of looking for something.
The Celestis prepares to decide whether to support the Time Lords or not. The Doctor visits Mictlan and faces down the Celestis in their grand hall. He agrees to give the Celestis his body after he has died if they don't interfere with the Time Lords on Dronid or later in the War. The Doctor also forces them to agree to several other stipulations as part of this deal.
(900 years before The Eleventh Hour)
The Doctor tries to read the TARDIS manuel, but he disagrees with something he reads and throws the book into a supernova.
The Doctor visits Sima KK98 during an attack. A fleet of six Gabrielidean warships sets off for Dronid.
Claiming to have an age-old connection with one of the Enemy's agents, the Doctor travels to Dronid to find a diplomatic solution to the building conflict. He wipes out almost the entire Faction Paradox family on Drornid.
The Beginning of the Time War
"What do we fear, after thirty years of War?
We fear that it was lost in the first nanosecond. We fear that we are fighting something unstoppable and ancient.
We fear that we may become what we fight, or that we have already done so."
- From The "Monsters" Code by House Strategist Entarodora
(401 years after Dead Assassin / The
first Battle of the War / local Drornid year 15,367 / the 155th century in Earth terms)
The Battle of Dronid: The Last Great Time War in Heaven begins. Lolita is at least partially responsible for getting the Time Lords into the Time War. The Gabrielidean warships, led by a representative of the High Council (probably the Doctor) arrive at Dronid. The Doctor is the the first casualty in the War. He dies in an incident involving a security system while fighting the Enemy. Few people understand the complexities of why and how the Time War was started. The Time Lords fight their first battle with the representatives of the Daleks. The Gabrielidean Warships begin orbital bombardment, while a series of small ground battles erupted. The World Processor engines activate devastating the surface of the planet. Due to inexperience, few members of either side survive the Battle of Dronid. This is first time Gallifreyan soldiers see full active service in 10,000 generations. The last time the Time Lords fought a battle this violent was during the Eternal Wars. For this reason the battle becomes legendary on Gallifrey. The Doctor's body is buried beneath Dronid's capital city. His epitaph might be either "Behind you!" or "He really did the best he could." The Doctor's body is telepathically hyperactive after death (far more then a regular Time Lord's corpse). Some force or entity keeps ensuring that the Last Great Time War happens. The Time Lords end up naming this force the Catalyst. Some speculate that the Catalyst was Rassilon, or the Eternal known as Death, or Matrix, but nobody really knows. The Catalyst also worked hard to eliminate the threat of the Doctor. This could be why he dies in the Battle of Drornid.
The Banquo Legacy: Cuthbert Simpson sends the location of the Doctor (from before The Burning from the Doctor's POV) to the Time Lords of Romana's Gallifrey. Not realizing that the Doctor will eventually ally himself with another Gallifrey, Romana orders the commander of Presidential Quadrun 19, the Chancellor of Time Present (probably Theorasdavoramilonithene), to lead 9 War TARDISes after the Doctor. Since this is much earlier in the Doctor's relative history, the arrest is a violation of the Laws of Time.
(a few days before the
The Ancestor Cell: The Doctor (who is only 1018 at this point) arrives on Gallifrey and offers to supply the Type 102 TARDIS (aka Compassion) to the Time Lords, and to solve the riddle of the Edifice. The next day Councilor Samax is made the new Chancellor of Time Present. At this point the Time Lords of Gallifrey still don't know who the Enemy is. It should be noted that some sources have stated that the events of The Ancestor Cell are merely propaganda. Others state that the form of the enemy will keep changing throughout the War.

that the Time Lords of the other Cloneworlds learned of this

(292 years older then the Doctor in TAC / older then 1450 but
still in his 8th body / around the time of the end of the Last
Great Time War in Heaven)
This is the version of history the Doctor created by undoing the Paradox version of The Ancestor Cell. Unfortunately the only option for undoing the Faction Paradox's invasion was to release the continuity of the Foreman Universe in a Bottle, which destroys the original Gallifrey.
THE POST ANCESTOR CELL TIMELINE
The Broadcast episodes of classic Dr Who appear to
the stories least affected by this merger. Maybe these events
existed in BOTH Foreman’s bottle universe AND Classic Time, and now
might be much more crystallized (aka time locked) and inflexible
then the rest of the 'expanded universe' material. It would also appear that
the Big Finish Continuity
might be superior to the novel continuity since it has been referenced
more often and more directly in the series. This could indicate that
the 8th Doctor audios are more firmly crystalized in the current
timeline then the 8th Doctor novels.
The Battle of Mutter's Cluster / The Ancestor Cell (continued): Faced
with letting Grandfather Paradox destroy all of causality and riddle
the Multiverse with endless Paradox, the Doctor decides to create his
own paradox by changing his destiny. He triggers his TARDIS’s
weapons systems, which is the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
The TARDIS's improvised Paradox Machine gives up holding in the
temporal energy of the displaced timeline and Foreman's Universe in
Bottle. When energy is released it erased the future version of
Faction Paradox thus preventing them from ever invading the Matrix in
the first place. History is altered to the point where the
Grandfather Paradox version of the Doctor can no longer exists, so he
fades away. The Doctor uses his link with Compassion to upload
a copy of his memories to her data banks. He then deletes his
memories and places a very compressed copy of the Matrix into his
mind. This includes the minds of 153,841 Time Lords who have
existed up until this point. The energy escapes the TARDIS and
destroys the entire Kasterborous Sector.
The destruction of Gallifrey spreads
temporal fallout onto other planets killing almost everything on
those worlds. Romana and Mali escape in Romana’s
TARDIS. It should be noted that without
the Faction's invasion of the Matrix there should be (once again) a
total of 8 Gallifreys.
NOTE: The fate of the Time Lords in the Sphinx Bottle, the other 8 Gallifreys, or of any of the extra dimensional Gallifreyan survival teams in not covered in TAC. Given that Time Lord history was reset at the end of the events of TAC they are probably still out there. It should be noted that Brain of Morbius probably couldn't happen in this timeline because the entire Kasterborous Sector has been destroyed.
destruction of Gallifrey)
1151= The Enemy detonates star-killers in the systems with the materials for the Time Lord fleet would be mined. Thus the Homeworld could (and was destroyed).
1151= This continues until local Time itself collapses from the damage. The war continues.
(From Alien Bodies / before Taking of Planet 5 from Homunculette's
POV / early in the War)
The Battle of Mutter's Cluster: The Original of the Nine Gallifreys was "wiped" but the other 8 Gallifrey Cloneworlds survived. Early in the War the Time Lords lost secret of the most powerful Gallifreyan technology, including the Sash of Rassilon and their more powerful Biodata codes. Some of Gallifrey's weapons were deleted from history during the Time War. Officially the Great Key of Rassilon (which was used to power the D-mat gun) lost at the Battle of Mutter’s Cluster. But in reality it allowed itself to be stolen, and was biding its time, waiting for someone to try to use it to stop the Time War. The Eye of Harmony Gallifrey I is neutralized and the planet Gallifrey is devastated.
NOTE: This is possibly the "alternate version" of the beginning of the War as seen by a renegade Time Lord doped up on Praxis.
?? Foreman's Universe in a Bottle explodes its continuity into the timeline of the Classic Universe. A hybrid timeline with events from both the Classic Timeline and the Foreman Bottle Timeline is created.
? At some point the Doctor is responsible for the temporal slippage that causes the events of the UNIT years to slip from the 1970s to the 1980s and back again several times. This was probably a side effect of the Time War. This could happen if the Doctor changed history so that birth of Christ based Gregorian calendar was miscalculated by 10 years.
(during the Event)
The Time Lords of Gallifrey finally believe they have learned who the Enemy is. The Time Lords come to the mistaken conclusion that the Ancestor Cell IS the Enemy. All naturally evolving life in the Universe descended from a single Ancestor Cell that existed in a time zone of formative continuum outside the Noosphere of a normal TARDIS's capabilities. These cells were not the first living things. But the organisms that evolved from them were. These organisms spawned all naturally evolving (i.e. non-deliberate) life in the Universe before they died out. While the first living cells died out, the Ancestor Cells remained and over the next several billion years, the chronon decay created by various Time Travel Capsules and various temporal paradoxes pollutes the Web of Time. This pollution which feeds the Ancestor Cells, allowing them to grow into a "race" that is completely alien and inimical to the Time Lords. The Ancestor Cell could well have evolved into the Sirens of Time who can enter the Vortex and feed on temporal chaos and paradox. Both the Ancestor Cell and the Sirens conquered Gallifrey in an alternate timeline – was this the same event? The Temperon planned to contain the Sirens forever.
The Time Lords believe that the Enemy is much more dangerous then the Daleks and that it originates from Earth. Throughout the War their will be extensive rumors among the lower ranking combatants that the Time Lord leadership don't really know who the Enemy is. This is only reinforced by the fact that many military units are deliberately not informed of the Enemy's nature to keep them from getting over confident. Many Post Humans believe that the identity of the enemy is constantly changing as the War is fought.
In reality the Time Lord's enemy in the Time War is the Daleks. In the past, the Halldons had relocate the humans from Earth to the planet Skaro. These people became the Skarosians and eventually the Daleks. Thus the enemy did originate on Earth. They use time-active weaponry and have co-opted many representative species as allies. These representatives (or Reps as they are known among the Time Lords) fight the Time Lords, keeping the true identity of the enemy hidden.
1151 The Doctor and the Time Lord Technician Nivet are rescued by Compassion (Type 102). The Doctor’s Type 40 TARDIS (having been reduced to the size of an atom) will need about a century to recover from these experiences To keep the Doctor and the TARDIS safe during this time Compassion takes the Doctor out of the Time War into an area of Gallifrey Relative Time where/when Gallifrey has already been destroyed. The Doctor is suffering from shock and is dropped off with the TARDIS on Earth in the year 1888 AD. (for the rest of the Doctor's experiences after this story see the previous timeline) Compassion and Nivet leave to explore the Multiverse. Braxietal escaped too, though, by the end of the Time War the Doctor believes his brother is dead.
(After Infinity Doctors)
The Time Lords will have to deal with the Faction Paradox, Catavolcus, Varnax, and Timewyrm.
(After Dead Romance)
Christine Summerfield will later escape from the Universe in a Bottle and join Faction Paradox under the name Cousin Eliza.
1151? In the beginning of the Time War, the Time Lords try to use use more peaceful methods again. The Time Lords assault an Enemy held world using an Attack of Ignorance. The world was disconnected from the Web of Time so that the Eye of Harmony couldn’t “see” it. But this had no effect on the world and it is revealed that the Enemy also has their own Eye of Harmony to create, observer, and anchor the Web of Time.
1151-1157 (early in the War)
Dronid is abandoned by both sides and the Enemy's armies launch attacks on thousands of planets. The Time Lords cause the Cataclysm on Dronid by seeding a clockwork bacteria. This done so that no one will know about the battle. Dronid is unsafe for years.
(early in the War)
The Last Great Time War in Heaven, between the Time Lords and their enemies, the Daleks, heats up. The War Presidency suspends the normal Laws of Time. It is now allowable for Time Lords to violate these minor Laws of Time as long as the proper flexi-time forms are filled out after the violation. On Gallifrey, those who do not support the War effort wholeheartedly are viewed as potential traitors. The Time Lords and their enemy send most of their military forces into battle throughout the Spiral Politic, leading to numerous chaotic and pointless battles. Battles in space almost never happen – space being largely irrelevant to history. Poorly briefed strike teams of the enemy attempt several major, but apparently random changes to history on several worlds. Without understanding the enemy’s purpose the Time Lords attempt to correct the changes. The location of the battles are known collectively as the Time-Front Worlds, and include Dronid, Simia-KK98, and Lethe. The Brown Star System of Mer is far from all of the fronts. Every battle of the Time War is fought and re-fought until time itself collapses under the strain. As a side-effect of repeated exposure, each of these battle sites effectively becomes their own, inaccessible, timeline, sealed beneath a time lock. A time locked time zone is surounded by a temporal penumbra which traps anything that tries to enter it in a stasis field. These places are known as Scarred Worlds. The forward edge of time locked area of space-time (the point at which that physical area is once again accessible and vulnerable to intervention) is known as the moment. Once a world's history is damaged to the point where it loses strategic value (by becoming time locked), the war moves on to a new time zone. Eventually every incident in the Time War will become Time Locked by the constant exposure to the ever greater reality quotients of the attackers. In the entire Time War, there are only three incidents of something being able to escape from a Time Lock.
1151 (during the first days of the Time War)
As part of the Time War, the Zygon homeworld of Zygor is burned and destroyed by the Xaranti. The Xaranti were probably working as representatives for the Daleks.
1151 (at the time the War starts)
There are rumors and legends of a space-time event which would created peace between the Time Lords and their enemy. This event is discontinuous in space and time and the very act of observing it will alter the nature of the event and its possible location in space and time. The Faction believes that the Peace is either protecting itself from the War, or the War is actively protecting itself from the Peace.

Ten “animal” TARDISes are created on an abandoned world in the same time zone as the Homeworld. The Familiars broke free, captured and bonded with the Time Lord technicians and then vanished into the Vortex. The project was deemed a success and the techniques developed in this project were used in the creation of the 103-Forms.
1151~ (after the start of the War)
The number of Houses with active Looms and production rate of those Looms is increased dramatically. Several Newblood Lines are created and ally themselves with the House Military. The uniformity of the First Wave will be exploited by the Enemy who are experts at fighting such forces.

The Minister of Chance
(he is young in Death Comes to Time and was not
involved in the Mican Island incident)
The Minister of Chance is born. He is probably a Newblood with 2 hearts in his first incarnation. He spends his whole life fascinated by probability. He usually carries a couple of Quantum Dice that never land on a definite side. He claims his mother was born some time after the year 2000 AD.
1151? (before Night of the Doctor / probably during the beginning of the Time War)
The Doctor didn’t serve in the War and doesn’t consider himself to be part of it. He helps where he can, but he does not fight for the Time Lords. The Doctor spent the early years of the time war avoiding it as much as possible. This is probably why he’s hardly mentioned in the Book of the War. Despite this, the Doctor will lose several companions due to the Time War.
1151? (during the opening conflicts of the Time War / the 8th Doctor)
The Lighthouse: The Doctor travels to the Sigma Alpha Cluster of the Brown Star System of Mer. There he finds a dimensionally transcendent timeship of possibly Gallifreyan origin. The ship is unmanned and its sentience is trying to destroy all life in the cluster. The Doctor stops it.
(during the Time War)
The Daleks evolve to use temporal radiation (Atron energy) as a power source. This would allow Daleks to heal each other (and repair their travel machines) while in the field. It could also be a method of quickly undoing and sabotage (detected or undetected). This might have been a result of Davros's modifications.
1151 (during the first year of the Time War)
The Time Lords create and unleash the Nightmare Matrix Child in a lab. It uses a Matrix door to trap its victims inside a nightmare partition of the Matrix where they live not realizing they are in a simulation. If desired, the prisoner can be destroyed immediately. The Child is also equiped with a sanity eater that can strike at those around it. Those within its range are driven insane. The only cure is a regeneration. The Emperor of the Daleks was supposed to have control over the Nightmare Child. Given that it attacks Davros, and the Doctor was on Davros's side, it seems likely that the Time Lords lost control of the Nightmare Child.
(After the war begins / before the Remonstration Bureau)
Mrs. Foyle attaches the House of the Rising Sun to the Labyrinth she discovered before the War. Some of the exits of this labyrinth open to the time winds of the Vortex; others access even higher dimensions, alternate realities, and maybe even the Yssgaroth.
?? The year 1482 AD on the Earth is full of glitches (probably due to the Time War?)
(before the Devonire incident)
The Thousand-Year Battles begin on the planets Kaiwar, Mohandassa, and Utterlost. Kaiwar is abandoned when its history loses all its strategic value. Mohandassa drops out of history entirely, and the battle continues to be fought again and again on Utterlost. These worlds have their histories damaged to the point where they lose strategic value and become known as Scarred Worlds. Both Emperor Daleks and the Time Lords will try to use their chaotic limiters to generate a reality quotient high enough to breach these time locked battles but they will all fail. Fallout from the Thousand-Year Battles can result in some parts of an object being aged hundreds of years more then the rest of it.

Spur of the Moment: In an alternate timeline, the Great Houses and their enemy fight an epic battle. While the battle ends up time locked, one of the combatants creates a time loop with enough temporal flux that it allows the continuity of this alternate unvierse to penetrate the prime War timeline. Before this can split the Vortex the Time Lords inside the time locked zone draw in reinforcements from the prime time line to re-seal the time lock. In the entire Time War, there are only three incidents of something being able to escape from a Time Lock.
?? (during the Time War / During the First Beak-out / around 5000 AD?)
The planet Mercy is the location of a human colony of 150 people. But the colony is destroyed in a battle between the Time Lords, their enemy, and Faction Paradox. History was altered and now half of humanity’s records say the colony did exist and the other half say it never existed.
(Before the first 103)
The War King rescues Compassion from a null-probability field.
Compassion abandons Nivet, severing his symbiotic link.
1152 (1 year after the War begins / possibly in return for rescuing her / when the Time Lords start worrying about the Enemy)
Compassion agrees to help the War King with 103-Form breeding project. The male part of 100-Form breeding is provided by specially constructed bull-engines. After mating with one of these Compassion produces her first born son - Antipathy. Antipathy would be classified as a 103X Form. Antipathy is horrified to be born and horrified to altered by the Time Lords. Antipathy experimental, incomplete and unformed. He was marked for death even before his birth but the Time Lords held him imprisoned until after Compassion left Gallifrey. They sent him on a "test mission" that was in fact a suicide mission, but he consumed his operators and managed to escape. He hates Compassion for abandoning him. Time Lords of the Homeworld begin breeding several Type 103A War TARDISes to fight the Enemy. These TARDISes are produced through "organic" mating instead of being constructed in Solar Workshops. Compassion conceives thousands of 103-Forms and she will eventually learn to love all of her children (with the exception of Antipathy). All of the thousands of 100 Forms timeships are part human, like their mother Compassion. All of these War era TARDISes are female, and most are quite impulsive and agressive. Almost all Type 103 Operators are male. The male/female breeding system ensures that each 103-Form has a mutagenic factor to make them less vulnerable to the Enemy. These TTC’s are direct descendants of the Type 40 TTC (through Compassion) and are bred to be aggressive and sentient. The capabilities of the Form-103 are (probably) deliberately capped making them less powerful then Compassion. They are equipped with traditional precision-capable ranged weapons including the ability to cause local stars to go nova and to drain their power. They can swallow stars and leave them as nothing more then neutronium snowballs. They can cross the Universe in a day and cover over 300 billion years in an attosecond. War Era Timeships conceal themselves by embedding themselves into local culture - making it even harder to notice. If a ship is destroyed while in stealth mode then it will release a cultural shock wave that will be felt by everyone on the planet. They can create insubstantial perceptual illusions to defend against internal threats. The Time Lord operator’s primary purpose in a 103-Form is maintenance. A whole new culture and vocabulary has been created to deal with Time Lord TARDIS interaction. A 103-Form provides an operator with protection and a physical home, and an operator provides a 103-Form with a social/political foundation. These 103-Form TARDISes are the most essential and useful weapon the Time Lords have in the War and they are the most common TARDIS in the War era. In order to further safe-gaurd Time Lord secrets, all dead, dying, TARDISes are prevented from traveling to the TARDIS graveyard. Instead they are held in the vast Under Croft beneath the Capitol. This area now functions as both breakers and as a TARDIS graveyard. By the end of the War up to 10,000 TARDISes can be found there.
?? Homunculette is assigned his Type 103 TARDIS, Marie. She is a sentient TTC.
?? (during the Time War from the Gallifrey's POV / possibly when the 103 Forms went into production)
The Diamond World: Automated Gallifreyan Mining ships begin stripmining Varos thousands of years before humanity began mining it. At this point the planet is far lager and composed almost entirely of Zyton-7 ore. The operation is being overseen by well armed Time Warriors. The Doctor (from the pre-War era) helps them deal with a creature they find buried in world.
Several 103-Form TARDISes become
renegades over the course of the War.
?? Antipathy learns that Compassion is the City of the Saved. He tries to breacher the Uptime Gate but fails. He allies himself with Faction Paradox and even the Time Lords' enemy in an attempt to reach the City.
1152 (during the early years of the war)
The Celestis give the enemy the information to create conceptual entities. The Enemy invents the Anarchitects based on Celestis technology. These conceptual entities inhabit architecture itself and rebuilding or "rewrite" buildings, TARDISes or even cities. The technology used to create them was based on methods used in early types of TARDISes.
(hundreds of years before the
41st century / at the beginning of the Time War)
A species of paranoid decapedes known as the Yag Haz spend most of thier history trying to conquer or destroy all other sapient species in the Universe. To increase their resources they Yag Haz also sell their weapons to other species. At this point there are about 50,000,000,000 billion Yag Haz and 15,665,346,411,772,370,642½ other sapient beings in the Milky Way. Each Yag Haz generally carries 12 different weapons when going into battle. They are eventually driven out of civilized space by humanity. Afterwards they became representatives of the Daleks during the Time War. The Daleks begin converting the planet into a massive warship to attack Gallifrey.
The Face of War
The War in Heaven (from the Time Lord’s point of view) takes the form of bursts of activity followed by long quiet stretches that occur last until the Time Lords have cultivated enough Biodata to produce another Wave of soldiers. Loomstacks fill the air of Gallifrey VIII (aka the Homeworld) with smoke so that it is always dark. Once trained, the entire Wave is sent to the time-front lines in another flurry of attacks. War TARDISes are often organized into Centuries (100 units). The War Presidency authorizes the use of weapons of mass genocide from the Slaughter House, including the Omega Arsenal. The time vaults hold the Slaughter House. Inside the Slaughter House is the Omega Arsenal where all the weapons that are forbidden by the Laws of Time are locked away. All of these weapons except the Moment will be used against the Daleks during the Time War. Typical Time Lord weapons don’t need to be fired, instead they affect everything within a certain area. In the War, weapons usually attack the targets identity rather then physical matter. Many tools used in the War are nothing more than ideas. Some (but not all) can exist outside of a living mind. The Time Lords often break the Laws of Time by destroying entire cultures or steering societies.
Over the course of the War, the Time Lords physically secure millions of planets and secretly garrison numerous world throughout space and time. Parts of space-time have been booby trapped so that if the Enemy should some how take them from the Time Lords then the Time Lords can destroy those entire Time Zones.
(Before Chris gets a Rassilon Imprimatur / shortly after the war
The “Reconciler,” Devonire, negotiates several treaties with Lesser Species and various Houses to create an alliance against the Enemy. He releases various Time Lord criminals from Shada. Several renegades return to Gallifrey with full pardons to assist in the War effort. Even the most corrupt were offered these pardons and reinstated. He proposes augmenting lesser species and making them part of the House Military.
(Sept 2592 AD / Before
the attack on Ordifica)
The Time Lord deep engineers known as Nechronmancers begin collecting Highest Entropy Matter (HEM) from dead time states (where the universe had reached thermal equilibrium and history/time has ceased to flow). HEM is a type of anti-energy. It works by absorbing the ambient energy (probably the zero point energy) of an area so that no chemical or atomic reactions can occur. HEM was used to shield the Cold from the rest of Universe. The Remote scavenges HEM any chance they get, and use it to make their armor. The Cold is discovered on St Augustine City on the Earth Colony of Ordifica. Fitz is removed from the Cold.
1153~? (Some years before Devonire is imprisoned)
In an attempt to return the House of Paradox to the Homeworld Devonire becomes obsessed with finding the Grandfather’s Arm.
1153 (2 years after the War begins)
Faction Paradox tests the Remote by have then attack several Time Lords installations. This cumulates in an assault on Simia-KK98, which is a total failure. The Time Lords quickly determine that the Faction was responsible for the attack. This is the last time the Faction uses the Remote in military action.
1153 (2602 AD)
The Big Hunt: Braxiatel uses his knowledge of temporal physics to creates a daughter for himself with a genetics engineering template and some of his own genetic material. This would be the Doctor's niece. She is named Margarita Braxiatel Matsumoto (aka Maggi) and she can use her connection with Gallifrey's Eye of Harmony to roll back time over objects and people. She repairs several temporal messess for her father.
The Faction will set up on the Earth Colony Augustine City on the planet Ordifica.
Laura Compassion Tobin is shipped to from Earth to Ordifica by her family. She becomes one of the Remote.
?? (during the Time War / probably before the Chameleon Arch is developed)
Crozier's brain transference experiments on Thoros Beta are funded in part by the Time Lords from the War Era. The Time Lords see the transferance process as an effective way to infiltrate spies into other worlds. They also see it as a means of final escape should they lose the Time War. As part of this Crozier prepares several clones of Time Lords and keeps them deep underground waiting for the day when the donor Time Lords might need to flee their own bodies and have their minds transferred into the clones.
1155 (4 years after the War begins / the time of the First Wave)
The Time Lords begin actively recruiting Lesser Species into the House Military. Not all Time Lords are Gallifreyans. Some are aliens, such as the Ogrons, who become known as the Ogron Lords. According to rumor, both the Enemy and the Time Lords recruit from non time active species by convincing the recruit that their entire life history is being presented to everyone on their home planet. This is so devastating to the recruit 's sense of identity that they beg to serve the High Powers. These aliens are given the Rassilon Imprimatur, healing machines that allowed them to regenerate, and several other "Biological Advantages." Despite the fact that Time Lords consider nanotechnology to be so matter dependent that its useless as a weapon in the War some nanotechnology (leftover from before the War) is occasionally used. The First and Second Wave relies on nano-tech to “regenerate” the troops bodies when they are damaged. They physically age at a rate of one year for ever 3 to 4 that pass. Troops for Military Regen Missions are primed so that every time that they regenerate they acquire armor and defenses designed to repel known Enemy attacks. After there first regeneration they lose the ability to reproduce. There are thousands (if not more) of aliens who volunteer to serve the Time Lords. The aliens receive a form of brainwashing called a Briefing. The Briefing convinces the subject that supporting Time Lord objectives and goals is essential to their cultures survival. If the subject even thinks about betraying the Time Lords his mind will self-destruct. The field agents are equipped with (at minimum) jammers, a vibroknife, star charts, credit cards with no limit, and a neutron blaster. Soldier sometimes find that their history (past or future) has been altered in such a way to make them incredibly useful in the War. Depending on the nature of their usefulness they will either be promoted or frozen in stasis until needed. When field agents lose access to their own TARDIS and Extraction TARDIS is sent to pick them up.
House Strategist Entarodora
1155 (4 years after
the War begins)
Entarodora becomes Arpexia’s House Strategist. She concludes that the War in Heaven can only end by total victory by one side or the total deletion of the War from History.
? (Before the Percival incident)
By this point the Kithriarch of the House of Mirraflex (probably the Keeper of the Matrix) wears a Matrix circlet on his head. On the last Gallifrey, Engin was Keeper of the Matrix.
? (Early stages of the War)
The House Military creates the Killerbots out of old nanites they find in storage. It then deploys them despite the fact that they are obsolete. They are designed to destroy the bodies of Enemy Reps cell by cell. Killerbots are still used by the Fourth Wave.
1155 (4 years after the War begins / before the Lethean Campaign)
Mrs. Foyle uses the Labyrinth for delivering assassins from her Remonstration Bureau to various points in space and time. The Time Lords dislike her operation but as the Bureau is located at the very end of the universe they deemed it not worth the effort to attack. This fact became a part of the Voodoo Charter that exists between the major powers and the Bureau.
?? (1462 AD)
The Celestis becomes the first war time power on Earth when they establish an outpost at the site of the Wallachia called Gragov. Valad III makes contact with the Celestis there.
1156 (2595 AD)
Fitz joins the Remote and leaves Ordifica.
1156 (5 years after the War begins / a few months before the Second Wave goes after Ordifica / a few months before the end of the year)
The Venue Accords are organized by a human agent of an unknown power (possibly the builders of the City of the Saved), who creates a galaxy sized structure connected to every point in space time. All wartime powers were invited with the exception of Faction Paradox (but including the Remote). The Venue computed the agendas and desires of all parties and creates a document that meets both sides needs. This took less then one picosecond and resulted in the Master Accords, which claimed that both sides would agree to disagree on all points. All parties present signed the Master Accords but the talks fell apart almost immediately after that. The Venue was disassembled by the power that organized the talks.
1156 (5 years after the War begins / shortly before the 2nd Wave attacks the Faction)
The House Military releases the Second Wave of Loomspun warriors. It is the largest and most destructive of the first eight waves. They are the first Gallifreys to be engineered to radically alter their physiology after each regeneration. It launched attacks against any culture that could be a threat to the Time Lords and was particularly hard on Faction Paradox and other renegade Time Lords. The Second Wave tendencies to attack non-Enemy targets would later be viewed as a waste of resources.
1157 (2606 AD)
The Crystal of Cantus: In order to maintain his control over his cybermen army, Braxiatel tries to trick Jason into become the new cybercontroller on Cantus. In revenge, Benny used the Crystal of Cantus (almost certainly the Coronet of Rassilon that Braxiatel stole). Braxiatel is forced to abandon his collection on KS-159.

In search of the Grandfather’s arm, Devonire comes into contact with former Faction member (and current Enemy Agent) the Immaculate Formosii and other Enemy forces. The paradox anxiety that resulted from the quest’s “completion” drove Devonire insane. He was subsequently imprisoned on Shada.
(2596 AD / 6 years
after the War begins / In the early
years of the War)
Interference: The High Council's Second Wave Second Wave of the House Military destroy Ordifica because it has been influenced by the Faction Paradox. This is done by removing the actual fabric of space time that supported the planet. The part of the Vortex that served as a foundation for Ordifica was punched right out of existence. This is only the second time that the Time Lords have damaged the Space Time Vortex in such a way (the first being when Rassilon released the Yssgaroth). To prevent another invasion by the Yssgaroth the entire planet-shaped hole was enshelled in Highest Entropy Matter. The High Council has since officially forbid this tactic.
1157 (6 years after the
Survivors from Ordifica (who were evacuated before the attack) are used to found several Remote Worlds throughout the Spiral Politic. They sell temporal technology ti various species. Most of the Remote members who escape will set up on the Time Lord Warship headed for Earth. The colony is called Anathema. It is supposed to breed and train the Remote to be the frontline troops for the Faction Paradox. Other organizations founded by the Remote include Order of the Rectangle, the Cult of the Black Sun, and the Luminus.

By this point all but 2 of the original Remote colonies have left their original colony world. They now cross space in the form of armies and refugees. The Sycorax came from the world Fire Trap in the JX82 system and are feared by speices all over the Milky Way. According to legand they would be one of three species left at the end of the Universe. The Sycorax are quite possibly a splinter group from the Faction Paradox.
? The Time Lords find the Remote’s total lack of agenda, and leadership to be as disturbing as their insatiable desire to overturn any ruling power.

While on the very edge of the Spiral Politic (near the Posthuman regions) Compassion discovered the remains of a 103-Form TARDIS named Percival. She immediately goes to the Homeworld to demand an explanation from the War King. After a secret meeting Compassion travels to several timezones in the Spiral Politic, probably conducting research on the Enemy.
Compassion (aka the 102-Form TARDIS) And The War King (aka the Master)
1161 (10 years after the
beginning of the war / right after meeting with the War King)
After completing her assessment of the enemy Compassion returns to the Homeworld. Her last trip has left her partially disabled and her companion, Carmen Yah, also requires medical attention. Compassion believes the Enemy represents a very serious problem for the Time Lords. The War King claims that the Enemy killed Percival and that the Enemy wants all Time Lords and TARDISes destroyed. Compassion believes him. Compassion makes a deal with the War King to open up a “second front” in the War for the Time Lords. Most (if not all) of the fronts in the Time War will remain the same for the first 50 years. In return she asks for a set of fertile male and female Time Lords and a loom. The Matrix assures the War King that Compassion won’t betray them and Compassion is supplied a Time Lord childe of both genders and an old generation loom.
1161 (10 years after the beginning of the war / right after the Percival incident)
Compassion returns Carmen Yeh to her the company of her renegade Time Lord friend. Compassion probably doesn’t take another traveling companion. By this point Compassion believes that the Enemy is a mere distraction for the Time Lords. The true threat is Lolita.
? Carmen Yeh writes of her experiences in book titled Fantastical Travels in an Infinite Universe.

Resurrecting the Past: Braxiatel begins using the energy from KS-159 to prepare the planet Maximediras as a possible new Gallifrey. This could become one of the Gallifreys that were created after the original Nine Homeworld Project.
1161 (2610 AD)
Escaping the Future: Braxiatel discovers a reptilian species called the Deindum who could develope into the new Lords of Time. With the help of Benny, Brax prevents them from ever developing time travel. In the process of this Time War, Irving Braxietel, the Doctor's Brother, is killed by a Deindum soldier.
(Before the invention of Zero Time)
The Time Lords invent the Gravity Spiders. These retro-pre-emptive weapons travel backwards in time searching for gravitational shifts caused by the Enemy’s time traveling techniques. The Spiders merge to form a warhead and destroy the enemy time traveler at the moment of materialization. Though an effective weapon the real reason for their deployment was to force the Enemy to invent Zero Time.
? The Enemy invents Zero Time to clean their timeships and thus remain hidden from the Time Lord’s Gravity Spiders. Zero Time is an artificial form of time. The Time Lords harvested the bubbles of Zero Time that the Enemy had placed through the Universe and analyzed it to learn the capabilities of the Enemy’s timeships and the movements. This is one of the only war victories the Time Lords have accomplished in the field of technological development.
? Zero Time is added to Utterlost in an attempt to open up a new landing zone for the troops. This added time is quickly filled by attacks and pre-emptive attacks. Attempts to place Time Lord agents in stasis to observe the outcome of the conflict have been unsuccessful (possibly the Enemy is attempting the same thing).
? The Battle of Planet Deadlock: Time Lord and Enemy Timeship fleets become interconnected in an attempt to reach the surface of Utterlost, forming a giant sphere around the planet. The Battles carried out within the connected timeships bears more resemblance to urban crime then actual warfare.
? The Battle of Nova Majestic: A TARDIS belonging to House Arpexia kamikazes to cause a nova in an Enemy held system.
? The House of Mirraflex becomes one of the most violent and ruthless of the House Military.
? House Mirraflex destroys a culture that learns of Time Lord activity and then crypto-forms a copy in its place.
? The House of Mirraflex might have D-Matted a potentially skeptical neutral culture. This could have resulted in the anomalous nebula Spancil’s Hypothalamus.
? (Shortly after the creation of the Hypothalamus)
The Battle of the Roar: This battle ranged over Spancil’s Hypothalamus, Kaiwar, the western arm of the M32 Galaxy, the great Carcorthran Void, and “Behind You.” All locations are now tainted with excessive communication interference and static.

The Time Lords Lamia and Mr. Stipes renegade and become assassins in Mrs. Foyle’s Remonstration Bureau.
? (Before the Lethean Campaign)
The assassin-automaton Knight Immortal is fired from Mrs. Foyle’s Remonstration Bureau and joins the Enemy.
? (Early in the War)
The Time Lords reactivate the remaining Babels. Several Renegade Time Lords were bribed into returning to Gallifrey. They were captured, and lobotomized by military psychosurgeons from House Mirraflex. These renegades were connected to the Babels via a neural link to keep the Babels under control.
? (After the War has been going for a while)
Several Houses begin developing new sub-Houses for experimentation. Many abandoned Houses are reactivated to for experimentation and to increase troop numbers.
1162? (1121) (Early War era)
The House Military branch of House Arpexia attempt to test the “Jungle Children” folktale by creating Kaspar Hauser on Earth in 1828. Within 3 weeks he had learned to read, count, write, and play the harpsichord. He also changed the course of German history. After 5 years of exposure to human culture Hauser was removed and the project was declared a failure. The research did however lead to the development of the Temporal Vaccinations.
1162? (Shortly after the “jungle child” experiment)
Entarodora develops her “Disturbance by Mystery” theory which will later be used by Robert Scarratt.
1162 (11 years after the War begins / after the Jungle Children project / right before the Lethean Campaign)
The Third Wave of the House Military is created. The biological defenses that Time Lords have against the Great Vampires and the Charon are reconnected in all Gallifreyans. Troops used by the Time Lords are re-engineered by reprocessing their timelines instead of using nano-tech. When these non-Gallifreyans are infected with the Immortality Virus they are able to regenerate, but they will have much less control over the process. They physically age only one year for ever 3 or 4 that pass. Their cells will "evolve" and "improve" themselves. With each regeneration the subject's appearance and abilities will get farther and farther from the species norm. The Time Lords give the agents special drugs that control how they regenerate, turning them into whatever the Time Lords want them to be. They are re-engineered to regenerate into a more "military" form with each regeneration. These troops quickly lose any semblance of humanoid form. The first regeneration produces built in armor. The 12th creates a being that is hardly even organic. The intermediary officers of the House Military object to these modifications but are overruled. The Third (and subsequent) Waves use Temporal Vaccinations instead of nano-augmentation to protect themselves from damage. They work by introducing several small changes in subjects history makes his history resistant to large-scale change. Soldiers who have undergone temporal vaccinations are sometimes called Hybrids.
1162? (during the Time War / probably not before the Third Wave / probably after the High Council funds Crozier's
brain transference experiments)

While Time Warriors can regenerate well over 60 times, possibly even 507 times. But almost all of the Time Lords of Gallifrey are limited to 12 regenerations.
?? Exact control of regeneration becomes available to all Gallifreyans.
1162 (11 years after the War begins / early in the War / end of the Second Wave)
73 undamaged Casts and the several Babels were sent to the planet Lethe as part of the Lethean Campaign. This Campaign was the last crusade of the Second Wave and the first of the Third Wave. The enemy’s time ship eating weapons destroys the Cast’s control platforms leaving massive firestorms on the planet. The assassin-automaton Knight Immortal is destroyed while fighting for the Enemy in this campaign.
1162 (during the Lethean Campaign)
A group of Walking Dead (sentients with very low probabilities of existing) might have captured a TARDIS during the Lethean Campaign.
1163 (256 AF)
(one year after the Babels are deployed)
By this point in the Lethean Campaign the Babels have proven to be one of the few truly effective fighting forces in the Time Lords arsenal. Unfortunately they were all destroyed buy the Enemy when someone (probably the Doctor) killed the Renegade Time Lords who were controlling them. The Doctor was involved in many of the Time War's most important battles.
1163? (After the Third Wave)
Forced military Regen Missions become a standard House Military strategy. The Regenerated Infantry (Regen-Inf) troops sent on these missions will be forcibly regenerated into forms that will best suit the mission. Forced regenerations are much more painful then regular regenerations. This is done by introducing mutagens into the regenerative matrix that given them defenses, weapons, and Symbiotic Nuclei These mutagens also make them sterile. They serve as frontline soldiers and siege weapons. Since most of these Time Front troops are recruited from lesser species they often permanently stationed off of Gallifrey.
(Before the attack on the City of the Saved)
House Mirraflex researches using Forced Regeneration to turn Regen-Inf troops into transports for other Regen-Inf troops. The experiment if a failure but inspires the development of the Time Beast.
? A cousin from House Mirraflex spends decades impersonates a messiah-figure on a post-human world to prepare the culture for Regen-Inf recruitment. This is primarily achieved though use of regeneration to “die” and be “reborn.”

(20 rapid growth years before the 4th Wave)
The House of Xianthellipse is a major advocate of diversity and makes extensive use of Biodata from Lesser Species for the Fourth Wave Project. The House begins actively crossbreeding troops with Lesser Species. The Fourth Wave of the House Military begins to be "naturally" born. The Gallifreyan who will become known as Robert Scarratt of the House of Xianthellipse is created (probably by natural childbirth).
1168 (17 years after the War begins)
The Fourth Wave of the House Military is created by the House of Xianthellipse. The House is a major advocate of diversity and makes extensive use of Biodata from Lesser Species. The House of Xianthellipse begins actively crossbreeding troops with Lesser Species. The success of their wartime efforts is quite impressive. Much to the distress of the High Council, they are capable of breeding with lesser species. Despite the objections from House Mirraflex the Wave is quite stable and effective. Robert Scarrett becomes the most successful member of the Fourth Wave (and House Xianthellipse).
1168? (After the War begins)
By this point even the High Council fully accepts and endorses biological reproductive methods. However House Mirraflex is very critical of Newblood House who pollute their biodata with material from Lesser Species. They outright refuse to work with House Xianthellipse.

She mounts an attack on the City with over 100 Type 91 War TARDISes. After the complete failure of the attack (and the destruction of 11 TARDISes) Mantissa retired from the post of Lady Armorer and relocated to a different clone of Gallifrey.

Captain in Waiting Robert Scarratt is a member of the House Military’s Fourth Wave. He is assigned to a Xianthellipse monitoring post stationed near a Post-Human world, and is responsible for delivering shipments of psychotemporal agent Praxis to the Homeworld. He becomes addicted to the drug. With the help of the Praxis and several Humans, he prevents a violent revolt on the nearby world.
?? Some factions of the Posthuman human hegemony devote themselves to historical re-enactment. This combined with their use of the time travel psychotemporal drug Praxis concerns the Time Lords.
?? In an alternate version of history a race of nonhumans (possibly Time Lords) was supposed to become Praxis. It possible that the Praxis represents the physical manifestation of the enemy's history intruding into the Web of Time.
1169? (After the loss of D-Mat tech / the time of the Fourth Wave)
The Time Lords become desperate enough to whole-heartedly embrace physical technology (often known as burlesque devices) such as nanites, robots, D-mat guns, and other purely mechanical tools. Robert Scarratt is a proponent of such burlesque as a moral booster. The Time Lords begin using the word D-Mat as slang to refer to any weapon capable of destroying a planet. Forced Regen Missions usually carry at least one symbolic D-Mat weapon. The Fourth Wave makes extensive use of “D-Mat” weapons and Killerbots.
? (Shortly after becoming a Captain in Waiting)
Robert Scarratt undergoes a series of rapid promotions, demotions, and reassignments. He is insubordinate and bends the Laws of Time by disappearing in his TARDIS for a year subjectively (but no time objectively). The near-renegade’s counter culture activities and habits are tolerated only because of his successful infiltrations, assignations and confusions. Despite not being a Prydonian he wears scarlet. He might have been created via natural childbirth.
? Robert Scarratt, and other Time Lords, have some success with cross-dressing during infiltration missions.
? The Time Lords erase most of the Parablox toys from Europe in 1998 (or maybe 1987) AD.
? (During the first 50 year of the War)
There is an attempt to insert foreign matter in to the Eye of Harmony. This attempt fails.
(a long time before The Final
The Panoptican is sealed - Probably to prevent easy access to the Eye of Harmony's Power Mast.
(sometime after the Percival Incident)
The Time Lords abandon almost all of their ceremonies and rituals in an effort to focus attention on the War. The Houses represented by the High Council are no longer stable. In fact they change frequently.
? The Battle of Twin Stars’ Pass: While orbiting a black hole around a future version of itself members of House Xianthellipse gets into a fire fight with their future selves.
Amanda Legend Lefcourt largely handles actual leadership of House Halfling because Grandfather Halfling (probably the Doctor) is rarely in the City.
(a good deal
of time before The End)
The Doctor begins creating the Institute of Time.
?? The Ghost Cluster devices are created by the Time Lords. These devices work by reducing a beings reality quotient, or probability of existing (and thus the effect he has on collapsing quantum waves). The end result is that the actions and observations of target (or Walking Dead as they are sometimes called) have almost no effect on history. Even the slightest change tampering with upstream history can erase the target from existence. Ghost Clusters are often deployed against members of the lesser species (like the Society of St. George) who know too much about the Time Lords.
?? Earth begins to suffer from numerous random explosions. These explosions are caused by Time Ships who are targeting points in space time that could have had great significance in the future. The people killed in these explosions are (probably by design) largely removed from the cultural context of Humanity. Thus (by definition) nobody important is ever killed. Thus their actions (even before their deaths) don't matter.
This Town Will Never Let Us Go)
A Timeship probably "crashes" on earth and is buried beneath a town.
?? (Possibly during the First Wave / possibly during the 7th Wave when they were sabotaging cultures / possibly after the events of Of the City of the Saved)
This Town Will Never Let Us Go: The Faction Paradox attempts to convert pop star Tiffany Korta into a cultural Loa (by immensely boosting her cultural body's size) so that she can pilot the Timeship (probably a TARDIS) crashed under a Town on Earth. Cultural Loa are organisms made of pure culture that can only be seen from outside of Time. This Town Will Never Let Us Go: Anthropological Predictions show that Humanity was on the verge of evolving into a non-linear time-active culture capable of processing entire universes of information called Homo Imago. This is called The Younger World Theory. Humans and Gallifreyans are the only races whose cultures can not be accurately predicted by these projections. Humanity would have had a field of comprehension larger then the Time Lord’s Noosphere. It might have made them travelers in the 6th and 7th dimensions of Possibility and Imagination. The human named Valentine is working for the one of the Higher Powers (probably the Enemy) and plans on destroying a Timeship that crashed on earth. The Great Houses deploy a Ghost Cluster device on him (almost certainly to stop him from detonating the bomb). Despite this the Timeship is still accidentally destroyed. An unexpected side effect of this is that Humanity misses its first opportunity to achieve its conversion into Homo Imago. Instead of making that leap humanity slides into a state of virtual cultural and technological stasis for at least the next 10,000,000 years. Rumors suggest that this stasis might have been arranged by the Time Lords, possibly using the Jallama Reed and New Young God’s Transmissions.
?? The Houses of Arpexia and Xianthellipse deem the Ghost Cluster Devices to be immoral and officially forbid their use.
(25 years after the War / 1850 AD)
The Time Lords establish the Gauntlet House Military Academy on Sol III in Japan. The Academy is under the command of Kobe. Both officers and trooper classes are trained there and dueling is common. Students and graduates proudly display dueling scars.
1176 (25 years after the start of the War)
The Fifth Wave of the House Military is created. Using the lessons learned on the previous 4 waves the Fifth Wave is carefully created. They are trained at the Gauntlet. This proves to be the most stable, reliable, and disciplined Wave to date. Most of the Wave will still be alive 25 years after creation.
? (shorty before The Taking of Planet 5)
The Time Lords lost lots of troops battling the people of the Third Zone in the Fifth Time Assault (or 5th Wave).
? House Military Officer Robert Scarratt attends the Gauntlet in the hopes of obtaining a permanent scar.
? Robert Scarratt is quite successful in weakening the mass psyches of some Lesser Species.
? Robert Scarratt becomes a Fourth Wave Commander. His unit has amazingly low casualties rates, and high moral.
? Robert Scarratt becomes and agent provocateur for the House of Xianthellipse.
1179 (1138) Cousin Gable of the Faction Paradox begins work on Mujun: The Ghost Kingdom. The plot of this story is based on events from the Faction’s future.
? The Enemy invents the “You” Diversions. A conceptual weapon that will deliver propaganda messages directly to the target's brain.
?? (After the “You” Diversions are created)
The House Military begins drilling its subjects to differentiate between coincidence and Enemy action. This is known as the Probability Doctrine.
? The Enemy invents Xenoprediction. In theory it is a way of predicting what a culture will do when faced with a completely original problem. In practice it might just be a propaganda tactic designed to make the Time Lords behave in predictable, non-creative ways. This is typical of the tactics used by the Enemy.
1180 The Faction Paradox attempts to escalate the violence of the War using the Remote. This attempt fails.
1180 The Faction Paradox severs contact with most Remote groups to give them a few generations to develop. Several Remote colonies spread throughout space and time.
1180~? (Several decades
after the War begins)
The battles between the Enemy and the Time Lords are now conducted with great subtlety – with an emphasis on disinformation.
1180? Cwej enrolls in the House Military Academy on Sol III known as the Gauntlet.
1180? Several attempts are made to recycle, and super-cultivate Biodata for use in the War.
1180 (29 years after the
While at the Gauntlet the Time Lords use Cwej as the template for their Army of One project. The project (which is a violation of the Laws of Time) is undertaken because the only resource shortage the Time Lords (or the Enemy) have is Biodata They need troops and agents to fight the War. 216 alternate Cwej are produced by temporally diffracting the timeline of the original. The Cwej are a complete success but all other attempts fail (in a biologically messy fashion). The Time Lords claim that the failure is due to not having the right subject. Damen Cwej takes command of the “Little House of Cwejes.”
1181 (Exactly 30 years after the War begins)
House Arpexia’s Strategist Entarodora addresses the Fifth Wave. She says that their uncertainty about the leadership of the Enemy keeps them from becoming overconfident. This address becomes known as the Monsters Coda and is adopted as a standards House Military text.
?? (before the Ancestor Cell flashback)
The High Council deliberately keeps their warriors misinformed about who and what started the Time War. They use Misinformation Camps and Reality Bombs to accomplish this.
1181 (1 year before the Mount Usu Duel)
Cousin Gable (Michael Brookhaven) Aquarius a Celestis’s Meme-Mine from fellow Faction Paradox agent, Chad Vandemeer. He uses it to create a Genuine Concept Imagineering Processor and programs this device to create false ulterior worlds to film for his movies. The first Hollow Spectaculars are created. Brookhaven begins programming the GCI to make his movie Mujun: The Ghost Kingdom. Gable is targeted by the House Military when it is discovered that he had successfully diffracted himself. Agent Cwej is sent to destroy Faction Hollywood.
1181 Justine is born.
(31 years after the War begins) (9/3/03 or 1999 AD)
Hollywood Bowl Shooting/Mount Usu Duel: Cwej performs his most recent mission for the Time Lords by thwarting Michael Brookhaven’s Faction Paradox activities. Unfortunately his attempt to destroy Faction Hollywood probably leads to the release of the Enemy from a work of fiction being run on a CGI. The Enemy appears on Earth in 1999 during the meme-mime/CGI Processor creation of Mujun: The Ghost Kingdom. This happens because the narrative structure of the story had been destroyed, allow it to appear. The Enemy takes the form the God of the Ainu. Chris Cwej observes this event and afterwards takes the CGI Processor.
1182 (Sept 6th 1999)
By this time Hollywood is cut off from the rest of Sol III by barriers of broken, abandoned culture that has been collecting since the 1920’s.
1182 (2003 AD)
Chad Vandemeer assumes control of Faction Hollywood.
1183~?? The Sixth Wave of the House Military is created. The entire Wave (probably) defects to join the Enemy and is the High Council has the Wave retro-annulled so that in never existed.
1183 (32 years after the War begins)
The Fourth Wave disrupts the North American warrior tribes by delivering pre-recorded messages to them designed to steer their culture in non-threatening (to the Time Lords) directions. This eventually becomes the Broken Remote Project.
(Date Index 310639.5 Rassilon Era / long enough after the
death of the Doctor that many consider him to have been a myth)
The Final Chapter: The 8th Doctor accidentally visits a Gallifrey during it's distant future. The Doctor prevents the Elysian faction from executing its Final Chapter plan which would have re-written Gallifreyan history from year 0 forward. This Gallifrey would appear to not yet be involved in the Time War at this point.
(34 years after the War begins)
The Time Lords begin the Broken Remote Project to damage the Remote’s culture to the point where it is incapable of becoming a threat. The idea was to get the Remote to brainwash themselves. The most effective of the weapons produced by the Broken Remote Project was the New Young Gods program, which worked by allowing the Remote to vote one which Time Lord controlled Remote member came to ‘power.’ The satisfaction the Remote gained from making the choice blinded them to the fact that both choices were identical and selected by the Time Lords. The Time Lord House Military attack the Remote colony on Fallahal using warfare by banality. This included the deployment of the Jallama Reed Transmissions and the New Young Gods Project. The remote’s culture is utterly smothered in 10 years.
1187 (12 years before Of the City of the Saved / 280 AF)
Alisheer meets with the Time Lord Handramit for the last time for 12 years. He will regenerate between now and then.
1189 (38 years after the War begins)
The Seventh Wave of the House Military is created by the House of Xianthellipse. This is the only specialized wave. Its soldiers serve as elite assault force for tactical missions. It was trained to deal in psychological attacks and attacks against sentients in general.
1190?~ By this point a schism is developing between the Time Lords on the Homeworld and the House Military in the field as to the proper interpretation of the Laws of Time. The House Military troops believe themselves to be the active defenders of History and resent the Time Strategists' aloof plotting. For this reason the Seventh Wave of the House Military are all assigned Officers of the Quintessence whose job it was to act as a go-between between the Time Lords and the troops of the Seventh Wave.
? Quintessence Officer Redloom of the Seventh Wave founds the Redemption Cult, which becomes popular among the lower ranks of the Seventh and Eighth Waves. This Cult sees the War as a test of the Gallifreyans cultural right to be the Lords of Time.
? The Seventh Time Assault: Using approbation tactics developed by Robert Scarratt the Seventh Wave seeded disinformation about the Time Lords on Earth. The Enemy intervened and the Assault degenerated into the Seventh Retro-War. This is the last Time Assault for many years.
? Redloom is promoted to the rank of General.
?? (before Father Kreiner kills the Rani / centuries after starting her research on Miasimia Goria / probably during the Time War)
Deniable Operations: The Daleks learn of the Rani's secret bio-weapons research for the High Council and come after her. She loses her TARDIS. The Rani finds the Doctor and tries to pursuade him to help her break the Laws of Time. She wants to warn her younger self so that she will never start doing research for the High Council.
Fitz is trapped in Foreman's Universe in a Bottle / after the Rani creates the Academy lesson programs)
Father Kreiner kills two Time Lords and takes their heads as trophies. One of them appears to the Master (aka the War King) and one appears to be the Rani. Kreiner believes at least one of them is a clone created by the High Council. (Since the War King is see to be alive after this point it is safe to assume that the Master's head was a clone).
1191 (40 years after the War begins)
Faction Paradox scales back its attempts to aggravate the Time Lords and focuses on research into weapons and biology.
1191 (40 years after the War begins)
The War in Heaven enters an entrenchment phase.
? (probably before Warring States)
Erasing Sherlock: The Celestis provide Jimmy Moriarty with time travel technology so that he can disrupt the life of Sherlock Holmes.
1192 The Faction decides that the Remote is useless for the time being and abandons it to develop by itself.
(41 years after the War begins)
Warring States: Faction Paradox Cousin Octavia tries to locate a casket that can grant immortality.
? A group of Seventh Wave troops are stranded at the forward end of Frontier Time with a Type 89 TARDIS. Seeing that they would have to cross large areas of temus incognita, Quintessence Officer Hierarchio decided to have the group settle in this local area. While searching for an acceptable planet near the Anvil Stars they discovered that the Normal Space Universe was spawning new universes. The spawning of these universe was a deliberate action by some unknown faction from the future. The development of these universes was being overseen by several “gardeners” who were operating under the guidance of this unknown future power. Only certain budding universe with the correct specifications were being allowed to survive. The Gardeners were ensuring that the surviving universes would develop into the Intercreationals known as Leviathans. (Intercreationals are the organisms that live between the N-Space Universe and the other Universes.) The idea that someone would create numerous Leviathans inside in N-Space horrified the Time Lords and the information was classified (though the Celestis acquired a copy). The gestation period of the Leviathans is such that it is unlikely to affect the War in Heaven.
(after they stop freezing the prisoners)
Second Ordinary Kemble is assigned to a Mover on Shada. He one of two Ordinaries stationed on Shada. Neither of them are Time Lords.
(6 years before the Book of the War)
The Eighth Wave of the House Military is created. They serve in defensive positions and as reinforcements for the previous Waves.
Captain in Waiting Robert Scarratt
? Robert Scarratt leaves the Fourth Wave and forms a “Hire-for-interest's-sake” mercenary group.
(before Alien Bodies / when Justine is 16)
Sabbath is appointed Godfather of the Faction's military wing. In order to secure his own history he and Godfather Morlock proceed to kill his ancestors. Eventually they work their way back to his Great grandmother, Fiora Van in they year 1899 AD. While there they meet Justine (who is related to Sabbath). Justine decides to do what ever is necessary to find and slay Godfather Sabbath. Because of this Godfather Morlock is sure that he will be given an opportunity to train her.
1197 (46 years after the War start)
Warlords of Utopia: A series of alternate universes are discovered. They include thousands of worlds where Hitler won WWII and where Rome never fell. 13 Time Lords (or possibly 13 bodies of 1 Time Lord) flee to these alternate universe with 13 transportation devices. It is possible for the Time Lords to use block-transfer computations to create a continious gateway to an alternate universe or timeline. These stablized quantum dimensional tunnels require tremendous resources to set up and maintain. This area is considered out of bounds for the War in Heaven and both the Enemy and the Time Lords attempt to recapture him. House Mirraflex sends one of the Cwej to neutralize the 13 transport devices but he fails. With the help of Faction Paradox all the Universes where Rome never fell are "walled off" and become inaccessible (even to the Time Lords). Marcus Americanius Scriptor finishes collecting the devices (and related technology) from the worlds where Hitler won WWII and then leaves the alternate universe for the Classic Timeline. He writes his memoirs and titles them Warlords of Utopia.
?? (during the Time War)
The Time Lords use Hysteresis Generators to time loop vast areas of space-time. These truncated timelines are probably placed in the Axis.
(after Justine turns 16)
Eliza was trained under Godfather Sabbath while Justine is trained by Godfather Morlock.
1197 Little Sister Justine visits Dronid and works with Cousin Snajira. By this point the Faction has 6 warships constructed from the bones of the Great Vampires. These warships are used to destroy all the planets which have the remains of unsuccessful Faction operations.
(About 50 years after the War begins)
Lolita becomes the Grandmother of the House of Lolita on the Homeworld. At that point, she is the only member. This is only one of the many Newblood Houses that are being founded. Most are experiments in reproductivity and many have an interest in alien biology and culture. Lolita's blood line (which includes the Doctor’s TARDIS) was unique because they were a hybrids. She is only half TARDIS on her Mother’s side. As part of the 101-Project Lolita had the Master make special changes to her heart so that she can fulfill her destiny to evolve into a humanoid form. The changes were part of Mother (probably the Matrix)’s plan. Lolita is more of a process then an actual life form. She is a hostile new version of history with biomass and technology attached and, as such, its impossible for her to die. Lolita takes the Time Lord prejudice against lesser species to an extreme and sees herself as the smartest and most complex being in the Great Houses. She begins her career as an Academician for Game Logic but will quickly rise through the ranks. Lolita is at least partially responsible for getting the Time Lords into the Time War, and sees the War as useful for convincing the Time Lords that they are physical beings and vulnerable. She really doesn’t care who the enemy is. Lolita is planning to reveal her abilities to the Time Lords when circumstances are such that they can't stop her. It is at this point she plans to take control and fulfill Mother’s plans to create a new form of history. The War King sees Lolita as the future and doesn’t believe he has the power to stop Lolita – only to slow her down. By this point Lolita is no longer linked with the Master.

years after the Doctor's death / local Drornid year 15414)
The Doctor's body is found by the Faction Paradox and is ceremonially sent into the Space-Time Vortex by Cousin Snajira. Qizotl (Drax) learns of this and tracks the body to the Earth, where he collects it for his auction.
(shortly before Alien Bodies from Qixotl's POV)
Several members of the Celestis begin allying themselves with the enemy. The Time Lord leadership begins to have major doubts about winning the War and are desperate for to acquire some advantage.
?? Antipathy creates the humankind Manfolk who will be reincarnated in the City of the Saved.
?? The Time Lords realize they need to escape the end of the Universe. They open a gate to another universe (probably the next one). A group of them enter this universe and take all the life they deemed worthy. They leave post-humanity behind. Humanity views this as a betrayal.
?? Antipathy leaves this Universe and travels beyond the City of the Saved. Once there he turns himself into a new universe that will appear to be the Next Universe.
The Doctor's Casket lands on Sol III (Earth) near the Phoenix Sandbowl. The United States of America military retrieve it and store it in the Toybox.
1199 Alien Bodies: Justine and Snajira are sent to bid on the Doctor's Body.
?? The colonist Lon Shel is infected by the soul of Antipathy and brings him back from the Next Universe Colony into the City via the Downtime Gate. The Next Universe Colony is left without any trace of Antipathy's personality.

Handramit is still teaching a Onesia High Seminary in the Onesia Emirate. By this point he has survived a dozen assassination attempts.
(48 years of the War / 292 AF)
Of the City of the Saved: Compassion's first son, Antipathy, begins destroying and re-creating parts of it. The parts he creates are undetectable by Compassion and thus capable of killing humans. Every human that dies is recreated by Antipathy. The Time Lord Handramit visits the City of the Saved but is eventually thrown out when it is learned that he is Councilor Alisheer St. Marx's Father. Antipathy begins raising an army of Manfolk to go to spread his pain and misery throughout the City. Godfather Avatar of the Faction Paradox's Rump Parliament destroys Antipathy with an Annihilation Bomb. Part of the City of the Saved undergoes a Civil War and the Universal Machine sends the last of the colonists to the Next Universe Colony, and the Downtime Gate is permanently sealed. The Next Universe Colony might be named Home, and it is predicted to last several quadrillennia.

Christine Summerfield will later escape from Foreman's Universe in a Bottle and join Faction Paradox under the name Cousin Eliza.
(probably before The Book of the War is published)
Foreman's Universe in a Bottle is acquired by Faction Paradox.
(50 years after the War)
The Ninth Wave of the House Military is created by House Tracolix and deployed. This is the first Wave constructed by House Tracolix and is guaranteed to “surprise” the High Council.

Interference: The Remote encounters the Doctor (age ~737) on the planet Dust and infect him with a "virus" that will subvert him to the Faction Paradox's will, by his eighth incarnation. I.M. Forman will become Forman's World. Father Kreiner is flung into the Space-Time Vortex and trapped in I.M. Foreman's Bottle Universe.
(After the War begins / after House Lolita is created)
The House of Tracolix becomes ruthlessly ambitions and eventually manages to acquire a seat on the High Council. They are allied with the minor Newblood House of Lolita.

Robert Scarratt might have been assigned to study Intercreationals However this rumor might have been started to cover up the investigations into Yssgaroth biology at the former location of Ordifica. Rumors also claim he undertaking a mission near the Anvil Stars.
1201 (50 years after the War begins)
The Time Lords realize a weapon that destroys ideas (or memes) would be the most effective weapon in the War. However they are reluctant to create such a weapon for fear of being destroyed by it.
The Face of the War:
1201 (50 years after the beginning of the Time War)
Life on the Nine Gallifreys are still strictly formal at this point in the Time War. The High Council of the Homeworld is made up of Cousins from the Houses of Dvora, Tracolix, Lineacrux, Arpexia, Xianthellipse, and Mirraflex. The Inner Council meets in the Black Void – an chamber in the upper levels of the Citadel, cut off from normal space and time. Below the High Council is the Time War Council (or Council of War) of the Great Houses which meets in the War Room. The War Room is the nerve center of the entire House Military. Every active House is represented on the War Council. The Master has known some members of the War Council for several life-times. House Arpexia, Xianthellipse, and Mirraflex are all members of the House Military. Most Time Lords view the House of Mirraflex as being dangerously out of control. Time Lords of these Houses will often wear ceremonial battle forms to major official events. The Time Lords prefer to use and diplomats to gain allies to fight for them in the war. By this point Gallifreyan Civil Servants have a psychic tripwire that cause death by psychic seizures if they try to reveal confidential information. Paradox Anxiety (the fear that one is trapped in a paradox) is now a major problem among the Time Lords and Temporal Vaccinations have become very popular. All nonmilitary research missions have been suspended.
Very few members of the House Military appear to be remotely humanoid. To combat pardox anxiety, and other stresses of the War, troops, agents, and officers are given the ability to reboot their personality to an earlier state of being. This is done by overlaying a previously saved personality matrix on the mind of the psychologically disabled individual. Though common among the Regen-Inf, the Time Lords rarely use these devices, claiming to be above psychological disturbance. At this point almost all off-world Time Lords are either classified as Field Agents or they are assigned to Boundary Posts. Their battle cry is "Prydon, Rassilon, and Gallifrey!" There are more 103-Forms in use then any other type/form of TARDIS. There are at least 59 time-fleets, all numbered. It is not hard for a moderately sized time fleet to extinguish even a well protected star. As of this point no 104-Form TARDIS has not been invented but a break through is expected. (By the end of they Time War they won't have reach the Type 110) The Type 91 is the only other TARDIS breed still in production.
The head of space traffic control is now known as the Gate Keeper. Some claim that each Homeworld has more defense systems then it has inhabitants. Even for timeships that have permission to approach, the space-time course through all the defenses of the Home World is very complicated. Under most circumstances homeworld security must have a biodata extract from a potential visitor before they will be allowed on Gallifrey. The Citadel of the Time Lords (which includes the War Council's chambers, the Eye of Harmony, and its TARDIS womb) is the most well defended location in the Universe.
By this point the War has spanned millions of years of real history and has cost billions of lives. The War is being fought on 920 fronts and nearly 500,000 worlds. Most (if not all) of these fronts have been the same for the last 50 years of the War. The Time Lords have defensive arrays that are the size of entire star systems. Both the Enemy and the Time Lords appear to have an unwritten agreement to abide by most of the Laws of Time – perhaps from fear of the consequences. Due to the time active nature of the War both sides have all the pre-planning time they require. The Enemy (and probably the Time Lords) can detect any incursion into N-Space by time travelers at a tactically important world. 99% of the Time War involves deception and camouflage and most battles are won but tricking the opposing force into believing that they were the winners. A major War tactic is checking the future outcome of a battle after the forces have been committed but before the war has been fought. Then altering the nature of the forces to fulfill history without wasting extra personnel. A more complex tactic is to plant false history records to thwart the above tactic. A significant tool in the War are Ur-Boxes. They broadcast signals into the Vortex that present a set pre-recorded events over a localized area. Any time scanner that tunes into that time zone will see history unfolding as presente in the pre-recorded files, when, in reality, intervensionists can be undertaking a mission to alter events. The range of a Ur-Box is limited to less then a mile, which can require that the unit to physically re-enact certain nearby events to maintain the illusion.
The few lesser species that are aware of the War in Heaven see the Time Lords as the most significant and powerful faction. And Gallifrey is almost universally known as the Homeworld. The intricacies of the Labyrinth are so well know that both the Time Lords and the Enemy take to destroying any entrances they find to prevent them from being used. This includes severing many (but not all) of the links between various Time Lords installations and the Secure Information Dump (located in the Labyrinth).
1201 (50 years after the start of the War)
The Book of the War is published by an unknown pro-human faction. The Enemy manages to censor some entries.
1201? (before the fall of the Eleven Day Empire)
A Story of the Peace: Cousin Dysgenia can place her consciousness outside of of normal causal thinking, allowing her to catch ‘glimpses’ of a way to make a Peace between the Time Lords and their enemies. She is trained by Godfather Morlock to fine tune this ability. With her help, the actualizers of Faction Paradox manage to create (probably using block-transfer mathematics) a box that holds the doorway and key to the Peace. This Peace is then offered to both the Time Lords and their enemy. Both sides send negotiators. Negotiator Melmoufex represents the Great Houses in the negotiations and Negotiator Suroboruo represents the enemy. The Symbiotes serve as the mediators for these peace talks. The peace was created by both sides bribing the Faction Paradox arbitrator to ensure the other side loses. Thus both sides provided the Faction with vast amounts of resources but the effect of their bribery cancelled out, resulting in no peace for either party. The Peace explodes, destroying Dysgenia, both negotiators, their timeships, and erasing the symbiotes from history.
(50 years after the beginning of the War / Shortly before the Eleven Day Empire /
Lolita begins breeding with lesser species She gives birth to a baby TARDIS. Shortly after that she in impregnated with another.
years after the War begins / possibly after the Cruciform falls)
The Eleven Day Empire: House Tracolix, Lolita and other Time Lords team up with the Sontarans and offer Faction Paradox a full pardon if it will ally itself with Homeworld. The Time War Council approved of all Lolita’s actions against Faction Paradox. Cousin Justine bonds with the Shadow of Grandfather Paradox. While the Sontarans do assist the Time Lords in this minor attack on the Eleven Day Empire the Time Lords refuse the Sontarans request to ally with the Time Lords and participate in what they consider to be finest war in History. This greatly upsets them. Sontarans refer to the Time Lords as Face Changers (possibly related to regenerative powers of the Rutans?)
(right after 11 Day Empire)
The Shadow Play: The newly formed House Lolita who becomes one with the Spirits of the Eleven Day Empire by swallowing the entire empire. This establishes House Lolita's loyalty to High Council and many other House form alliances with her. Eliza and Justine are the only inhabitants of the Eleven Day Empire that escape from the Time Lords. After consuming the 11 Day Empire, Lolita’s power is such that it would take the combined powers of numerous Osirians to restrain her.
Lord Ruthventracolixabaxil of House Tracolix might have been trapped in his TARDIS by an Anarchitects and starved to death. This might be a rumor spread by Lolita to explain his disappearance.
?? (before Body Politic)
Lord Mortegathonlandvora (aka Mortega) of House Dvora becomes Ambassador to the Osirian Court. He is young compared to the War King. He has the same voice as Andred of the House of Redlooms so its likely that they share the same body like the Doctor and Maxil did. His non-military timeship is named Ilsashatii. Like most TARDISes of this type is wasn't designed for manual control. Instead the operator gives vocal commands to various systems, such as the navigator.
1203 (right before the Year of the Cat)
Sabbath Dei: By this point the various Houses on the Homeworld are pretty much at each other's throats. House Lolita is has become so politically powerful that it will soon control the High Council and all of Gallifrey. Lolita distributes herself in over 1000 different time zones simultaneously allowing her to influence history on a grand scale. All of these Time Zones have been directly influenced by Higher Revolutionaries in the War. She collects an army of cyborgs from the 51st century to assist her in taking over Sol III in 1763 AD. The Time Agents of the 51st Century have heard rumors about the Time War.
1203 (52 years after the War begins)
The Year of the Cat: Justine is captured by the Time Lords, tried, and sentenced to Shada for the crime of the Grandfather (whose Shadow she carries). Compassion jokes that she is the second cousin once removed of a God. Compassion, Eliza, Justine, and Sabbath destroy Lolita's army preventing her schemes in the 18th century. By this point the Time Lords would likely sterilize any planet that they found Compassion on (regardless of the Laws of Time).
1203? (After getting rid of the Faction / before Coming to Dust / 300 years before Coming To Dust? / ~1460 AD)
The Time Lords don't like the power the Osirian Court has and begin threatening them. The Osirian Sutekh organizes armies of Mal’akh on Earth to attack the Mediterranean (a focal point of Earth History). Lolita and other members of High Council of the Time Lords approached the Osirans under the guise of diplomacy, but then attacked them. Lolita tore Geb’s face open in such a way that it could never be repaired. Sutekh also dominates several Time Lord agents who try to stop him. In order to prevent this the Time Lords agree to a treaty with the Osirian Court, agreeing to recognize the Court's independence if Sutekh removes the Mal'akh from the Mediterranean

Movers: After six months of trying, Compassion manages to possess Mover Selvynkesh and convince him to release the Blood Coterie Demetra Kein from her chamber on Shada. He believes that he does this to cause embarrassment to the High Council. By this point there are 16,000 prisoners on Shada. Selvynkesh also causes a power failure and releases 200 female prisoners. Second Ordinary Keeble releases Shuncucker to defeat Demetra Kein. Demetra's forces throw a Strata Grenade that blows a hole in the cross dimensional nature of Shada jumbling all the dimensions. Justine escapes from temporal stasis using the Grandfather's Knife.
1203.5 (right after Movers)
A Labyrinth of Histories: Because of the Strata Grendade Shuncucker, Justine and Keeble are able to enter the Secure Information Dump located in the foundations of History. They accidentally set fire to the records and most of the Scarlet Chapterhouse Collection is burned. Justine meets the Minataur of the Labyrinth and receives a message from Morlock. The House Military's forces arrive to retake Shada as do the forces of the Blood Coterie. Justine's stolen TARDIS arrives under Compassion guidance and takes Justine back to Eliza. By this point the Great House are considered to be falling apart by Post Human societies and the House of Ixion is considered to be a dying bloodline.
1204? (after A Labyrinth of Histories / 1763 AD)
Coming To Dust: Justine and Eliza discover that a copy of the Race Banks of Faction Paradox on Earth. They have been destroyed by Sutekh at the request of the Time Lords. Sutekh has enough power to singlehandedly hold of entire time-fleet of War TARDISes. In vengeance Justine goes to the Ship of a Billion Years.
1204? (after Coming to Dust)
The Ship of Billion Years: Lucita, is a childe who was rescued from the damaged Faction Paradox Race Banks is being raised by Humans in 1763 AD. Sutekh attempts to take control of the Court of Osirian Court but Justine uses Lucita to releases Horus who imprisons Sutekh and puts him on trial. Lucita's lack of a complete Biodata (future) history is fixed by bonding with Horus. Justine is chosen to represent the Osirian Court to the Time Lords.
1204? (after Ship of a Billion Years)
Body Politic: Lord Mortega wants to form an alliance with the Osirian Court. He believes that the Osirian Court could be key allies on at least 17 fronts. Lady Lolita, however, claims that the diplomacy with other species is a waste of time and that lesser species should be forced to fight for the Time Lords. The War King see’s Lolita as the future and doesn’t believe he has the power to stop Lolita – only to slow her down. Justine wants to resurrect Osiris so that he can prevent Sutekh from gaining power. Eliza ends up having to donate part of her Biodata to filling the missing gaps in Osiris’s Biodata Justine’s long term goal is to reestablish Faction Paradox as a viable faction. Lolita allies with Sutekh to prevent this. They falsify evidence that indicates that Justine and Anubis were going to defile Osiris’s Biodata and commit blasphemy. This gives Sutekh the support he needs to become head of the Osirian Court. Just at the Osirians are about to destroy Justine and the resurrected Osiris the 59th Time-Fleet of the House Military arrives and threatens to destroy the 20 mile long Ship of a Billion Years. Sutekh tries to go to war with Time Lords but the Osirian Court refuses to support him, forcing him to back down. The War King invites Justine of Faction Paradox to have sanctuary on the Homeworld. The War King promises to issue her a full pardon. Lolita injects Eliza some of her biodata to the Osirus/Eliza hybrid which will give him the power to destroy Sutek in a fight.
1205? (after Body Politic)
Words from Nine Divinities: The War King brings Justine to Gallifrey VII to force Lolita’s hand. She stays there for 5 days polarizing the council into two factions; a pro War King faction, and a pro-Lolita faction. After Horus defeats Sutek, Lolita swallows the War King to prevent him from opposing her. Lolita becomes the new War Queen of Gallifrey VII. Horus seizes control of his armies of vamperic beasts. Using the gap in the security systems that Justine had plotted out when she left Gallifrey, Eliza has the armies attack the capitol of the homeworld. They cause massive damage, even breaching the Panoptican during Lolita’s open address. Numerous council members are killed. The attack of the Vampires on Gallifrey sweeps over much of the land outside the Capitol. Most of Lolita’s forces, and most of the High Council is killed.
The battle between the vampires and the Gallifreyans was very long, but eventually most of the Vampires were defeated. However, the Vampires secure the hole in the Homeworld’s security that the used to enter and hold it. Cardinal Saverie is one of the few survivors from the Council, and he takes the position of Acting-Chancellor, for War Queen Lolita.
(6 months after The Ship of Billion Years / after Lolita becomes the War Queen)
Ozymandias: Horus and Sutek agree to have a final battle throughout all of Time itself to determine who should rule the Osirians.
The Judgment of Sutek: Horus travels to Gallifrey and disables Gallifrey’s defenses. Horus leads 740 Faithful of Horus and their 740 War Barges onto Gallifrey to attack Lolita. After losing this battle, Lolita is dealt with in such a way that she can never cause a problem for Justine (or apparently anyone else) again. The War King (aka the Master) appears to escape from Lolita (or is ressurected again) as he continues to rule Gallifrey VII until at least The Taking of Planet 5. Justine mortally wounds Horus and Sutek kills him. This makes Sutek overconfident enough that he accidently opens his mind to Justine and she severs most of the parts of his brain responsible for psionics. He is imprisoned on Mars by the Osirian Court.

Mesh Cos and her contemporaries plan to leave a legacy of humanity that will outlast their species. Over several centuries they created the Universal Machine from skeins of light, thought, and aether. The almost infinitely complex machine will have the ability to mimic any tool devised by humanity from stone calculators to aethernetic soulware - it is the sum total of all Human knowledge, technology, art, society, and language.

The Time Lords invent the Cold. A substance that exists as a liquid gateway/buffer between the Normal Space and the Yssgaroth-Space of the Vampires. The Cold is probably based on Validium. When you look closely at the cold you can see the Yssgaroth trying to escape. The Cold can also hold objects inside itself - keeping them in perfect stasis. When activated everything in the immediate area is pulled into Yssgaroth-Space. The Remote will make masks out of Cold.

1250~? (before the launch of the Warship)
The Time Lords create an ultimate weapon of mutual assured destruction in the form of a Gallifreyan Warship named Anathema. The Warship is about 7,000 km in diameter. It is black and made in the shape of the seal of Rassilon. It's design is based on prototype left over from the end of the Eternal Wars. The Time Lords install the Cold as the heart of Anathema’s weapons systems. It uses the Cold to remove whole planets from the space-time continuum, and place them in the realm of the Vampires. The Cruiform was a weapon left over from the Vampire Wars and is probably the Prototype Anathma Warship It might have had a Z-Neutrino Core – which was eventually used to power the Dalek Crucible.

On the world of Ragnifrex Major (100 light years from the Earth) the natives rise up and drive out the warlord Kaam. In order to get revenge upon his people Kaam allies with the Daleks. Kaam was a technologicial genius who was stationed at the Daleks' Eternity Citadel to work with the Daleks. The Eternity Citadel was an isolated world filled with scientists that Daleks had captured or tricked into working for them to create many weapons of mass destruction to defeat the Time Lords. The Citadel is kept outside of time with a transduction barrier and powered by massive amounts of psychokinetic brain cells bred from samples taken from Dalek mutants. In might have been invented by the Eternity Circle. The Eternity Circle is composed of 5 Daleks in blue and silver casings. Their purpose is to find a way to spread the Dalek species throughout history. Kaam conceived of how to create the Temporal Exterminator, but he quickly realized that the Daleks viewed him as little more then a slave.

A Time Lord warrior travels back to Pangea to learn the truth about the beginning of the War from an ancient book. He learns that almost everything he has been told about the nature of the enemy in the Time War was lies. The enemy is not from Earth but is in fact...the Daleks. The form of the enemy keeps changing throughout the War, but the some force or entity keeps ensuring that the Last Great Time War happens. The Time Lords end up naming this force the Catalyst. Some speculate that the Catalyst was Rassilon, or the Eternal known as Death, or Matrix, but nobody really knows.
(after Alien Bodies from Drax's POV / 400 years before the end of the Time War / possibly after Alien Bodies from the Time Lord's POV / a good amount of time after the start of the Time War)
The Time Lords learn that the Enemy is in fact the Daleks and not the descendent of the Ancestor Cell. The Time Lords go to war with the Daleks. After learning that the Daleks are attempting to destory them, the Time Lords send numerous field agents to create minor skirmishes against the Daleks. This is done to keep them distracted while the Time Lords prepare to launch a major assault.

War Without End: Veteran Time Warriors sneak deep into Dalek territory and rescue the Valeyard (aka the Doctor) from the Daleks. The Valeyard is being held on the Dalek Prison world of Earth. This is done to prevent the Daleks from having access to his knowledge of how the Time War ends. It is hoped that he will be able to change history to avert the damage to the Web of Time.
(when it looks like Gallifrey might be
destroyed / before Rassilon has a physical body)
The Enemies of Time: The Doctor is summoned to the Final Redoubt by an ancient program hard coded into every TARDIS by order of Rassilon. There is a Matrix Adjunct there which holds the brain pattern of Rassilon and every other great Time Lord who has passed away. Sacrificing vast amount of resources, the Time Lords resurrected Rassilon to guide Gallifrey during its darkest hour. They had considered resurrecting Morbius. Rassilon needs the Doctor to collect the 12 cylinders of the Apocalypse Clock. The Apocalypse Clock is capable of crystalizing and time locking the entire Web of Time at once, so that any time travel or change to history would be impossible. It was designed to be used if the Time Lords were in danger of being deleted from history, or if they were threatening to use the time travel abilites to destroy the Web of Time. Rassilon tells the Doctor that the time has come to use the Apocalypse Clock to end the Time War before the Time Lords are destroyed. The Doctor sucessfully quests for the missing cylinders that are required to activate the Apocalypse Clock but discovers that one of the matrix projections at the Redoubt is actually the Valeyard from the future. The Valeyard attempts to blackmail the Doctor into providing him with all of the Doctor's future regenerations. In return he will use the Clock to stop Gallifrey's fall. But Rassilon steals the Key of Rassilon from the Valeyard so that he can make himself a physical corporeal being again. The Valeyard escapes taking several of the Clock's cylinders with him. Rassilon's new body has two hearts.

The Time War might be a major shift in reality that is noticed by Higher Species in the Universe. But the Forests of Cheem (decedents of Earth from the year 5 billion AD) are one of the few Higher Species who can fully understand the Time War. The Forests of Cheem will learn, with great sorrow, of the destruction of all of the Time Lords at the end of the War. They (like many other Higher Species) are horrified at the massive loss of life it causes. The dead number in the billions. The retro-dead can never be counted. The Krillitanes and the Cynrog will also learn the details of the Time War.

Museum Peace: The Doctor realizes that he could destroy Daleks, but to do so would mean destroying the Time Lords as well. But he struggles with this decision, and eventually gives up on the idea. He witnesses a Dalek kill a child and commits himself to taking part in the War. He realizes that he will soon regenerate, but has something he wants do first.

The Forgotten: The Doctor is imprisoned in a castle on a planet that might be one of the Gallifreys. After 37 days of incarceration he escapes and frees the various species inside the prison. He also steals the Great Key of Rassilon. With this he could activate the Moment and remove millions of people from time and space. The Doctor considers using it to close the Medusa Cascade. Possibly the Doctor was keeping the Key as a back-up in case he couldn't find a way to win the Time War.

The New Doctor (John Hurt / Richard E. Grant)
(probably during the Time War / before Engines of War)
The Doctor's TARDIS is augmented so that it can store far more fuel then any TARDIS from the time of The Infinity Doctors. This allows the Doctor's TARDIS to travel to the end of the Universe and back again before needing to refuel. The Doctor has upgraded his TARDIS's sheilding to be immune to Time Torpedoes. By this point the Doctor's TARDIS doesn't like weapons and refuses to have any fitted. The TARDIS has a Zero Room. The Doctor modifies his TARDIS so that it can bypass transduction barriers. The Doctor discoverd that Transduction barriers can be breached by modifying temporal sheilding to created a state of Folded-Temporal Grace. It allows one to fold onself into alternate, but very similiar, timelines and time states. This can be used to flip oneself past a transduction barrier.
Time Lord Prison Ship
(During the Time War / probably before the Time Lords become evil)
The Time Lords capture several million Daleks but cannot bring themselves to destroy them. They imprison them (with their Travel Machines) in a dimensionally transcendental Time Lord Prison Ship. This Ark requires 13 square miles (48 sq. km) of space to release its prisoners. It would appear that these are most if not all the Daleks captured by the Time Lords during the War. Once captured by the Daleks the Prison Ship will be know as the Genesis Ark. The Ark has encryption mechanism, life support monitors, an elevation engine, and is held together with vectral frame clamps. The Ark can only be opened with the artron energy of a Time Lord (with a symbiotic nuclie) or by someone who had the nuclie's molecular stabilization codes imprinted on them by a TARDIS PAST. The Time Lords don't tell the Doctor about the Genesis Ark. This Ark will be one of the few peices of Time Lord technology that will survive the Time War.
(300 years before the final end of the Daleks in Evil of the
Daleks from the Dalek's POV)
Under the Master's leadership the Time Lords have many great victories. The Daleks begin to lose the Great Time War for control of the Cosmos.

The Eight Minute War: The Warrior enlists a variety of species from various worlds threatened by the Daleks. He builds the Army of TARDIS and trains them. But when he tries to recruit the Hermit the Army is ambushed by Daleks. The Daleks use the Hermit’s telepathic abilities and the TARDIS to send a temporal pulse back through time, destroying every world that joined the Army of TARDIS.
?? (during the Time War)
Alchemy: House Arpexia sends 3 weapons to the world of Tagonique. Of the three, the detonator of the group was created using the potential energy of the Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. They can reach back through a suitably altered temporal nexus point and release a quasar like blast of energy on various temporal frequencies to reshape that timeline. Their purpose on Tagoniqui is to ensure that the society never rises beyond its superstitious beliefs and thus won’t become a vast galactic empire that acts as a representative for the enemy in the War. They do this by re-introducing, on a local level, the cacophony of magic that the Time Lords banished during the Time of Chaos. Due the rationalizing nature of Eye of Harmony’s observations, this causes the world (and everything within a cubic light year) to be suddenly converted into high energy particles in 73 years.

The Mayakai are a warrior tribe has their entire culture primed to serve as a weapon in the War (probably by the Time Lords). The become a type of weapon and were able to use bones to inflict damage and death on their victims.

A human named Gault is promised the Presidency of the United States of America if he agrees to give the country over to the control of the Great Houses [does this tie in the Bovine creation of the USA?]. Faction Paradox tries to intervene by killing Gault. But the Time Lords had already double-crossed Gault, by elevating the physical manifestation of the American Dream to become a Lady of Time.

The Doctor allows an unknown female companion to die.

of the City of the Saved) / at least
several years before Rose / the Doctor's 9th incarnation / after a Gallifrey has been destroyed but the Doctor saved the Matrix from it)
Scream of the Shalka: By this point the Doctor is has taken the Master's echo that was trapped in the TARDIS (that was consumed during The Enemy Within) and constructed an android body and electronic brain for it that is linked with the TARDIS. The android appears to be able to only function within the TARDIS and is programmed to prevent the Doctor from getting any female companions. He chose this form of existence as an alternative to a slow painful death. This android is dependent on the TARDIS for survival and can be switched off by the Doctor. The Doctor appears to be working for the Time Lords on a frequent basis. He appears to have no ethical problems working for the military.

The Faction keeps its prisoners (usually family members who go bad) in the Boulevard of Alternate Brutalities. They are imprisoned within numerous side-steps in time and watched over by artificial intelligence projections. Indeed there are more alternate realities, pocket universes, and side-steps in time than anywhere else in the Universe. The Boulevard is made up of an entire town worth of streets and buildings stuck end to end that loop back on themselves. The Boulevard was created by Carpathian engineers who were paid several Galaxies worth of wealth. The streets were all collected, right before they were destroyed, from various times and places. The Boulevard survives billions of years until the end of the Universe, but is finally destroyed when Iris Wildthyme tampers with its failing systems in Library Pictures.

The Face of the
By the time of the 10th Wave Occupation, Gallifreyan Culture has been majorly restructured.
Most Time Lord agents appear to know that the Original Gallifrey has
already been "wiped." There have been at least 12
Cloneworlds created by this point. Time Lord Warriors receive their
orders from the High Command. Another organization connected
with the War Looms is the Time War Council of War Cardinals. The
War Council's High Command is made up of the General, Lord Bentham, and
Androgar and four other Time Lords. None of these people are on
the High Council. The General considers dealing with multiple
Doctor to be one of his worst nightmares. An all out assault on
Gallifrey by the Daleks is another. All
officers in the House Military must obey the War Rule. Rassilon
makes execution the mandatory punishment for almost all crimes.
The War Looms produce hoards of new Time Lords. Most [of not all] have a moment of conception. These freshly minted Regen-Inf warriors are called Newborn. By the end of the Time War the Matrix is linked to almost every Time Lord and every TARDIS in the Universe (including the Doctor’s). Time Warriors get upgraded vision via a Headcam with built in heads up displays. The Headcam's grid is fused to the warrior's neural receptors. It downloads all of its info into the brain of the warrior using a small part of their brain as a storage hard drive. The warriors have much of their training loaded directly into their minds. While many time warriors believe they receive premonitions of the future when the grid is fused to the receptors, the House Military maintained that they were just hallucinatory side-effects of the process. The Academy side of their training includes torture and fighting in the Death Zone (possibly at the hands of a restored Borusa or War Chief). 30,923 words have been created by the Gallifreyans to deal with the War. Priority Omega is one of the highest ratings in the House Military coding. “Change is good.” – “Local situations require local measures.” – These are both mantras from the Academies during the War with the Enemy. They also teach that there is no skill more important then the ability to get out of tight corners. The Time Lord troops are able to defy chronology and act faster then would be possible. They are force regenerated into forms that will blend in on whatever planet they go to. The veterans of the First Wave are the only officers allowed to keep humanoid bodies. Only 1 out of a 1000 Time Lords survive more than 15 missions. If the warrior dies the memory will removed from their cortex and uploaded to their family's drives. Any events that would be unsuitable for children will be tinted red. A language filter distorts video and audio whenever swear words are encountered. By the end of the Time War, trials were rarely used to determine what happend, but instead the investigation focused on the morality and motivation behind the accused's actions.
By this point Gallifrey VIII smells of rendered animal fat and bone smoke. Most reside in living quarters that resemble grey military barracks and smell of male hormones. Within the Capitol most Time Lords still view the Time War as be something that happens somewhere else to someone else. In addition to the Transduction Barriers and the quantum forcefield, the individual cities of Gallifrey are protected by multiple sky trenches. Gallifrey's best protected city is Arcadia, which has 400 sky trenches. Just one of these trenches could resist almost an attack by almost any temporal power. Up until the Battle of Arcadia, nothing in the Universe had ever overcome more then one sky trench.
Many of the weapons used in the War are created using chronoforges. As the forge creates weapons of temporal destruction they emit visible radiation from the fracturing of chronons. The Parallel Cannon is developed by the Time Lords for use in the War. It acts as a porthole to a nova an releases a stream of neutrinos capable of burning through 1 kilometer of nickel iron ore a second. The Time Lords deploy fleets of Bowships, Black Hole Carriers, and N-Forms (all stolen from their own past). Numerous Bowships will be burned by the endo of the War. Other Time Lord weapons can insert monkey biodata into its victims timeline. Biodamper rings are very effective devices that are used prevent the person wearing it from being detected and tracked. The Time Lords are also constructing Type 103, 104, and 105 TARDIS. By the end of they Time War they won't have reach the Type 110. Over a million battle TARDISes are used in the War (organized into over 10,000 Centuries). It would take a crew of over 6 million to man such a time fleet. Millions of planets are occupied by the House Military.
While the Daleks are unable to penetrate more then one of the skytrenches over the cities of Gallifrey, they have become experts at fighting TARDISes. A single DARDIS can time ram and destroy the current breeds of TARDIS. By this point the enemy can detect any grouping of 12 or more TARDISes anywhere in the Universe. They will immediately mount an attack on that time zone and fill the skies of a planet with their saucers. When the battles do occur in N-Space, many lesser species find their history's subtly altered and rewritten.
By this point the Doctor is considered a peasant hero, a bandit, and the symbol of independent wasteful initiative. Many illegal “historical romances” are circulated on Gallifrey IX about his adventures. These include the story “Doctor ? – In an exciting Adventure with the Enemy.” Most Time Lords like him dead (they think he’s slightly safer that way).

The Doctor humanizes several Daleks who go to war with the original Daleks. The Emperor is severely damaged in this battle, but not destroyed.

This ‘Dalek Factor’ has become so pervasive that the Time Lords no longer see their enemy as being something that can be summed up with a simple name. The enemy was spawned by an inherent function of the Universe, and is no longer a single species, but a process sweeping through the spiral politic. Something far worse than just Daleks of the 22nd century.
?? (after the Daleks are discovered to be the enemy)
The Longest Day: The Daleks are using a time-rift as a beachhead. The House Military attacks and both sides end up trapped in a time loop. This drives the Daleks mad and they see the enteral battle as their ultimate goal in life.
?? The Delphon star went supernova and the Time Lords are routed, taking massive losses. Homunculette was involved in this incident.
(before Alien Bodies from the Time
Lord's POV / possibly after the Dalek Factor is deployed)
The Time Lords begin to lose the War with the Enemy.
(Thousands of years before Bad Wolf /
shortly after Evil of the Daleks / after Skaro was devastated / shortly after the begining of the 10th Wave Occupation)
The entire surviving Dalek race (20 billion Daleks) boards 10,000,000 Dalek Timeships and vanish from their home time zone. Unknown to most species, the Daleks have departed to make direct assaults on the Time Lords as their last stand in the Time War. The Emperor personally leads this fleet. The fleet is armed with the weapons of the Deathsmiths of Goth.
1651 (almost 500 years after the War start from the Time Lords' POV / over 500 years after the War begins / centuries after the War starts / 2169 AD / before the Daleks are discovered to be behind the War)
Alien Bodies: The Time Lords learn that the Doctor's body can be found on Sol III (Earth) in the 21st and 22nd centuries. Desperate for a way to defeat the Enemy they send Homunculette is sent from Gallifrey XII to collect it, but Qixotl (Drax) has already taken it.
(half a millennium after
the war starts from the Time Lords POV /
centuries after the War starts / several hundred years after 1192 /
before the Daleks are discovered to be behind the War / 2069 AD)
Alien Bodies: Qixotl (Drax) tries to auction the Doctor's body off. Qixotl thinks that the body isn't exactly what everyone thinks it is. The invitation list is made up of the Time Lords, the Faction Paradox, the Daleks, the Humans, and the Enemy. The Celestis wins the auction but the Doctor (in his early 8th incarnation) destroys the body with a Thermosystron bomb on the planet Quiescia (a planet on the opposite side of Mutter's Stellian Spiral from Gallifrey).
(After the Last Great
Time War begins / during the 10th Wave Occupation)
The Time Lords being raiding their own past for fleets of Bowships, N-Forms, Black Hole Carriers.
(before Taking of Planet 5 / After Alien Bodies)
Time Lords rediscover the secrets of the D-Mat Gun. D-mat guns are stored only on Gallifrey IX. Newer models (the Type 104?) has a Time Vector Eliminator which can d-mat entire planets. The TVE is rarely used due to the unpredictable butterfly effect of removing something from history. By the time of Engines of War large scale D-Mat weapondry will be locked away.
?? (during the Time War / the Master was probably there to witness this)
As part of the Time War the Doctor battles the Sea Devils. It is known that the Sea Devils were involved in the Time War.
?? By the end of the Time War the Doctor believes his brother (Braxietal), granddaughter Susan, and the rest of his family are all dead. He believes that all his Gallifreyan friends are dead as well.
(during the Time War / probably after Alien Bodies)
The Doctor fought on the front lines of the Time War. It is because of this that he survived the War. He was involved in many of the Time War's most important battles. He fought hard and fiercely and did things that his previous incarnations never would have done. Others view him as dangerous and difficult to deal with, but in his own mind he is comprimising his own identity as the Doctor. During the Time War the Daleks devoted their most advanced weapons to destroying the Doctor.
(probably not long before Taking of Planet 5)
General Entarlon is whipped for using Omega’s name in vain.
?? Investigator Four, after being banished by the Celestis becomes a hermit. He realizes that Mictlan will attract the Swimmers that exist outside of our Universe. He makes a plan to release the Fendahl Predator to destroy Mictlan and the rest of the Celestis. He puts a Fictional Generator in Antarctica at 12,000,000 BC and gives it a book by H.P. Lovecraft. He enlists the aid of Hypernaught One, a Celestis Investigator.
? The Celestis's Investigation Section begins to suspect One of being unreliable.
(shortly before the Taking of Planet 5)
Due to a mistake made by the House Military the Time Lords take heavy loses in a battle with the Third Zone. By this point the people of the 3rd Zone are on the verge of inventing Parallel Weapondry.
(after the 5th Wave Time
Assault / almost certainly after Alien Bodies from the Time Lords POV)
The Taking of Planet 5 (Gallifrey): A subcommittee of the Time War Council, believing that the Fendahl are still trapped on the Fifth Planet, send a 13-man suicide infiltration team to acquire the Fendahl (The newly spun Holsred of the House of Redloom is part of the team). They plan to use it as a weapon against the Enemy. The President/War King discovers this is a trap. He has the members of the subcommittee used as material for the War Looms. Despite his failure in the Delphon incident the President sends Homunculette to investigate the Fendahl mission. By this point the War King's hair has turned white. One of the 99 Houses of the Celestis goes missing and Hypernauts One and Two are dispatched to investigate. The Celestis Agent One uses a Time Drill to releases the Fendahl Predator. The Celestis world of Mictlan is destroyed? Someone (Investigator Four?) implants a plan in the Doctor’s head to save the Universe from the Fendahl Predator (The Doctor is probably 1018 at this point). While the Predator is feeding on Mictlan the Doctor uses several War TARDISes to detach it from this Universe, leaving the Predator and Mictlan adrift in the Ur-Universe. Agents One and Four escape from Mictlan. The War TARDIS's used in this attack could become the Sphinxes known as the Kings of Space.
? While the Memeovore was attacking Mictlan the Shift led a group of servants onto one of the TARDISes that had crashed there. They then escaped and traveled back in time billions of years (possibly outside the Noosphere, almost certainly before the Intuitive Revolution) to a planet on the edge of a spiral galaxy. They sent up a civilization there.

The Celestial Preservation Agency (CPA) is created. It is tasked with preserving history and peoples perception of History. On Gallifrey IX the Doctor's name is a rallying cry for Time Lords of this era. The CPA takes the actor Daland to the interactive museum in the center of the Capitol to play the Doctor. Sontaran legends will tell how the Doctor led the Time Lords in the Last Great Time War. Omega is a complete joke by this point.
?? (after Scream of the Shalka)
By this point, the Warrior (aka the Doctor) believes he has lost the right to call himself the Doctor.
?? (during the Time War / probably a fair amount of time before the end of the War)
The Time Lords created alternate Daleks by repeatedly try to change Dalek History, but each version of history produces a new version of the Daleks. The Daleks being harvesting the attributes of these alternated Daleks. The Daleks laboratories develop Biodata Mutators to create more dangerous versions of Dalek Warriors. This leads ot the creation of the creation of the Skaro Degradations. The biodata of each Degradation has been mutated so that they are randomly evolving and de-evolving along their species timeline. Dalek Gliders, Spiders, and Temporal Weapons Daleks are all produced. The Biodata Mutator can create Degradations that are infections, generating continious mutator pulses that transform any who come to close. The DNA of the victiums broadcasts the mutation to others with the range increasing as the number of mutated increase. A single degradation could quickly mutate the biosphere of an entire world. The Dalek Mutators were quickly re-purposed as a weapon of mass mutation. The Daleks created slave armies composed of the most useful of the resulting mutations. The Daleks unleash the Skaro Degradations.
?? (during the last days of the Time War / before Ice and Neverwas / after the fall of Arcadia / )
The Time Lords develop the Memento Mori (aka death remembered). These near indestructable humanoid creatures are powered by the lost biodata of those who have been killed. They are dimensionally transcendental and it takes the energies of a black hole or star to kill them. They attach to the biodata of the target and search their past for other sapient beings who's lives were ended due to the actions of the target. All of the people who have been killed by the target are simultaniously resurrected as temporal echos. These time-shifted ghosts act as a psychic lense to reflect their deaths upon the target. The Memento Mori have no effect on people who have never caused any one's death, but the more death's a person has caused the greater the psychic energy and the more numerous the attacks. If they don't receive a recall command they will keep killing all possible sapients in order or priority until only Time Lords remain on the world. They are programed to only attack Time Lords if they are a threat to the Memento Mori's mission. They must have access to the Vortex to summon the echos and they can not pass through a transduction barrier. They are intelligent but only communicate when nessecary. When not being used in the Time War, the Memento Mori are stored in the Omega Arsenal.
?? (after the Time Lords create the Memento Mori / during the Time War / not to
long after the creation of the Degradations)
In response to the Time Lords creation of the Momento Mori the Daleks release the Skaro Degradations. The Daleks lose control of the Skaro Degradations after their own battle-fleets become infected and accidently spread the biodata mutation to many worlds. The Daleks abandon Mutator research as being too dangerous.
?? (during the later
days of the Time War / around the time the Temporal Exterminator was
created / after the Time Lords learn that the Daleks are the enemy)
The Daleks replaced the magnetic core of the current Yag Haz homeworld with an engine as part of their plan to turn the whole planet into a warship. The begin construction on temporal sheilding so that the planet would be able to travel the Vortex. They cover the planet with numerous bunkers full of weapons - enough to destory all life in several Galaxies. They range from handheld devices to interplanetary missiles. The Daleks equip them with chemical weapons that make a population's skin fall off or detonate one's blood, beam weapons that melt bones. Weaponized Vashta Nerada, and anti-time ship missiles. Anti-Human poisons include gas based viruses that enslave one's mind to the Yag Haz, drive one insane, or render its victums soluble to water. The Dalek's hope to eventually launch this planet sized warship at Gallifrey. When the Time Lords learned of this plan, they dispatched Momento Mori to the warship. The Warship is launched prematurely but ends up freezing in space as the Momento Mori devastate the population. What the Time Lords don't realize is that the entire warship is a diversionary action to draw the Time Lords attention.
?? (before Doom of the Daleks / probably before the Daleks develop true D-mat tech)
The scientists at the Eternity Citadel develop the Temporal Exterminator. Any being hit by this weapon has both their future and their past biodata threads unravelled and corroding it away. This continues until the target is entirely erased from history. The weapon draws the victim's artron energy right from the Vortex itself. The process takes some relative time but as it spreads the future version of the target remembers less and less of their past. The first thing they forget is that they were hit by the Exterminator. The weapon is a complex space time event with no real shape or mass. It uses fragments and echo's of an observer's biodata to present itself as some room from their past.
(during later days of the Time War / possibly before
Night of the Doctor / probably after the Daleks are revealed to be
Doom of the Daleks: The Daleks target their Temporal Exterminator on the Doctor. One of the human slaves working for the Daleks in the Eternity Citadel manages to slip a message to the CIA. It explains the details of the Temporal exterminator and tells them that it has been used on the Doctor. A member of the CIA known as the Director dispatches a team of agents to save the Doctor. The agents have a Temporal Trace Locator that tracks the hyper-dimensional scars left in the Vortex by the Doctor's disintegrating biodata. The agents locate enough of the scars to quadrangulate on the Eternity Citadel's location.
?? (shortly after the beginning of Doom of the Daleks)
Ice: Once the CIA's agents have located the Temporal Exterminator, the Time Lords place a Memento Mori on the world of the Eternity Citadel. While the Memento Mori couldn't breach the Citadel's transduction barriers, it does trap the Daleks there.
?? (shortly after Ice)
Neverwas: The CIA agents break in to the Eternity Citadel and deactivate the transduction barrier. This allows the Memento Mori to destroy the Daleks while the agents stop the Temporal Exterminator's attack on the Doctor.
? (not too long before Engines of War)
The New Parigium Daleks travel machines are developed and deployed.
? (not all that long before Engines of War)
The Daleks develop Stealth Ships are black ovoid shaped timeships. They have at least as much firepower as a Dalek Saucer but can hide in the Vortex from virtually any type of scan. The generally wait in the Vortex near war zones waiting to detect the vibrations of TARDISes. When a TARDIS is detected the Stealth Ships attack. There super-charged energy weapons can destroy a War TARDIS with a single hit.
The Cruciform after it was converted into the Crucible by the Daleks?
(significantly before the end of the Time War / before the Time Lords become evil / after the
Time Lords discover that the Daleks are the real enemy / when one of the Gallifreys falls / when the Time War reaches its peak / well before 2596 AD)
The Master witnesses the Dalek Emperor taking control of the Cruciform and the sacrificing of one of the Gallifreys. The Cruiform was a weapon left over from the Vampire Wars and is probably the Prototype Anathma Warship It probably also has a Z-Neutrino Core – which was used to power the Dalek Crucible. This Gallifrey's Eye of Harmony is jettisoned into the system's primary star, causing a supernova. Because of the Quantum Barrier only the surface of Gallifrey VIII is burned and is left in ruins. The planet is barren of life. This Gallifrey's primary sun becomes a neutron star. The ruins of the Gallifreyan cities can still be found there in 2596 AD. The blast from this event can still be seen when viewed from Simia KK98 in the 26th century (which means that Gallifrey much emerge from Inner Time less then 50,000 years from the 26th century). The remains of the Eye of Harmony might eventually become the Black Hole that Omega tries to return through in The Three Doctors. The Warrior (aka the Doctor) is probably not there to witness the fall of the Cruicform. If the Cruciform is related to the Crucible seen in Jorney's End, then the Daleks might have used its z-neutrion core to combine with the Medusa Cascade and create a Reality Bomb powerful enough to destroy the Multi-verse. A Reality Bomb works on the same principles as the Time Destructor, by aging matter till the elections and weak and strong nuclear forces crumble and the atoms fall appart.
?? (after The Taking of Planet 5 / at least 17 years before Utopia)
After witnessing the Dalek Emperor taking control of the Cruciform, the Master is filled with fear and flees the Time War. He travels beyond the noosphere boundary to the year 10,000,000,000,000 AD, and uses a Chameleon Arch to make himself human. It is unknown how many other Time Lords might have used a Chameleon Arch to hide from the Time War. He is found on the coast of the Silver Devastation in the form of a naked child. The Silver Devastation is the home of the Face of Boe. Could Captain Jack have raised the child and named this human Master Yana (an acronym for You Are Not Alone). Yana will spend his life traveling from refuge ship to refuge ship. He will become known as the Professor. Freed from subconscious pressure of his other selves and the druming in their heads, the Master quickly reverts to a kind hearted and even heroic nature.
? (in the final days of the war)
By this point there is only one Gallifrey remaining. It is located at the furthest edge of the War.
1676~ (probably 15 years before Engines of War)
The Daleks plan to use the temporal radiation of the Tantalus Eye as a massive d-mat based doomsday weapon that will erase Gallifrey from history. To this end they capture the entire Tantalus Spiral from Humanity. But first they will need to develop D-mat technology.
?? (probably after Dalek's take control of the Cruciform)
The Time Lords officially abandoned the Doctrine of Non-Intervension (a key point of the First Law of Time). The Time Lords completely willing to sacrifice any other world to increase the chance that Gallifrey will survive.
1690?? (during the final days of the War / 2011 AD)
On the Bubble: The Doctor's TARDIS is trapped by a time bubble orbiting Pluto. Imprisoned inside of this bubble is one of the horrors of the Time War, the Could've Been King. But the King and his creatures has managed to feed off of the seconds of time that have leaked in. With the Doctor's TARDIS now available, the King escapes to devour more time, and escalate the atrocities of the Time War.
(after the Master goes into
hiding / during the final days of the Time War)
The War turned into absolute hell. It is an all-consuming War of chaos and denial with the whole of creation at stake. The Time Lords burn worlds to ashes, or lock them in time loops. In some cases they disassemble entire Galaxies. The War is fought throughout history, though every Time, but most of the battles take place in the and No Time of the Vortex. By this point the Time War has covered a billion years. The history of the Universe is in a state of infinite temporal flux. While the war is technically invisible to smaller species (including most humans of the 21st century), many members of these species find themselves experiancing a deep sense of unease on a subconscious level. By this point numerous monstrous forces have come into being, including the Nightmare Child, the Skaro Degradations, Hordes of Travesty, the Army of Meanwhiles and Never-Weres and the Could've Been King.
(during the final days of the Time War)
The Neverweres of the Army of Meanwhiles and Neverweres were probably the neverpeople echos from deleted timelines who still existed in the prime timeline. The were likely recruited from the Anti-Time Universe where such never-people usually end up.

Tanton Macoute: By this point in the Time War the fighting is starting to make the spirits and loa sick. Time itself is sick. Faction Pardox attempts to get the former cousin, Tonton Macoute to perform a ritual that could cure the Vortex, but Macoute uses the opportunity to ingest two timeships (Demi and Medea) and escape from where the Faction imprisoned him. He sees himself as a predator who will change (and possibly help) the ecosystem of the Web of Time. He heads to the City of the Saved to take part in the Civil War.

The Sycorax are forced to leave their Homeworld of Fire Trap in the JX82 system when it was destroyed. Their Armada is feared by species all over the Milky Way. The Sycorax are quite possibly a splinter group from the Faction Paradox. According to legend the Sycorax would be one of three species left at the end of the Universe.
(during the last days of the Time Lords / after the Master went into
Rassilon was driven mad by the horrors of the time war. Some will regaurd him as the most corrupt and evil Time Lord to have ever existed. The Doctor beleives that Rassilon sees himself as a god. The Time Lords compromise all their morals until they are just as evil as the Daleks. They become monsters. The Time Lords are considered unpredictable and unreliable by the Lesser Species.
?? The ceremonial armor of Faction Paradox is made of the bones of Vampiric Time Lords. The Faction claims that these are the bones of Gallifreyans from an alternate universe where the Time Lords lost the Eternal Wars. Others claim that the contamination happened in this universe during the Eternal War and thus the bones are also derived from the same universe. The Armor could be the bones of future Gallifreyans who finally (in the distant future) succumbed to the V-Factor in the Immortality Virus. Whatever the source, these creatures were 6' 3" tall and covered in chitinous bone plates and were some of the most resiliant creatures the Faction ever encountered.

At the end of the Time War Rassilon will claim that the Time Lords have been around for 1,000,000,000 years. Just like the 10,000,000 year figure, it is likely that this is War Era propaganda.
1690~ (The center of the Time
War / at the end of the Time War / the final days of the Time War)
By this point the War has become so devastating that every second millions are killed and resurrected to die again. Numerous planets, star systems, and even the occasional galaxies were being destroyed and un-destroyed every second. Every moment in time and space is burning. The War is considered to be at a stalemate.
(before the Final Battle)
By this point in the Time War there are billions of parallel universes stacked on top of each other each separated by the Void. At this point is quite easy to use a TARDIS to visit alternate universes if you know the correct phase shift.
1690?? (334,961,147,104 AD~ / after spending centuries creating the being /
a week before the death of humanity)
Mesh Cos stows away on a TARDIS and sneaks onto Gallifrey. She steals information on the methodologies of temporal scanning but the theft is discovered by cousins of House Mirraflex. The stolen information is made part of the Universal Machine allowing it to reach into history and copy and record all of the artificial beings humanity has ever had a hand in creating.
1690?? (334,961,147,104 AD / 8 billion AD?)
The Universal Machine is completed as the War TARDISes of Time Lords attack the last human beings. It takes only a few minutes for the last of humanity to be destroyed. The Universal Machine becomes Human culture incarnate. Its first words (and the last words that Mesh hears before her death) are "Mesh Cos, I will remember you." The Universal Machine escapes the Time Lord's attack but remains on its creator's planet. This action might have contributed to the Doctor destroying Gallifrey. The Machine is the same manifestation of Human understanding that almost occurred in 2001 AD in This Town Will Never Let Us Go.
1690? (centuries after the beginning of the War)
If the Time Lords had survived then by this point the schism between the House Military and the High Council might have grown so large that civil war might be possible. By the time of the Doctor's 13th deathday, the Doctor will believe that if the Time Lords return they will return in peace.
1690~ (shortly before Engines of War / possibly after capturing the Eye)
The Daleks known as the Eternity Circle secretly develop omnicalculator based D-mat technology. The capture of the Tantalus Eye is key to this discovery. To create each dematerialization weapon they must continiously mine ruby temporal radiation from the Tantalus Eye. The Temporal Cannon consistes of 3 moons attached together. They issue a Special Weapon Dalek with this new weapon. They also alter themselves (or possibly their travel machines) so that they are immune to D-mat weapons. This might be done using a chaotic limiter. The Eternity Circle is composed of 5 Daleks in blue and silver casings. There purpose is to find a way to spread the Dalek species throughout history.
1691~ (right before the final destruction of
Gallifrey by a Daleks attack)
Planet of Lies: While fighting a War with Humanity the Daleks learn the location of the real Gallifrey.
1691~ (by the time of Engines of War)
The Great Schism: The Daleks are now attacking Gallifrey at every point along its history. The Daleks try, but fail, to wipe out life on Gallifrey before the Gallifreyans even evolve. With battles on so many fronts the House Military is stretched quite thin. The Doctor believes that the Time Lords are losing on every front, and are being out classed and out maneuvered by the Daleks.
1691~ (by the time of Engines of War)
Second Diaspora: Numerous people on Gallifrey begin placing recordings of their thoughts and recollections inside Memory Lanterns and releasing those Lanters into the Vortex to be scattered across space-time. They hope that some part of themselves will survive, but most if not all of these are destroyed by the time winds in the Vortex. Aunts of Iris's House remove Eliot the Tree from the Gallifrey using the Ringpull. They take the tree to Hyspero where he is protected from the Scarlet Empress byt he Clockworkers. The Master has already fled the War, and the Doctor and his TARDIS will eventualy join the Second Diaspora.
1691~ (after the Daleks begin attacking all of Gallifrey’s history)
Within the Capitol most Time Lords still view the Time War as be something that happens somewhere else to someone else.
1691~ (Probably in the last days of the Time Lords / possibly when the Time Lords created the Cruiciform / when the Time Lords were facing defeat)
This is a time of conflict and darkness The Time Lords begin developing the Ultimate or Final Sanction. They plan to bring about the end of time and destroy the entire universe. As the Gods of Ragnarok did with the Universe before this one, The Great Houses of the Time Lords plan to rupture the Vortex, causing the final inrush of matter that breaks the continuity structures in all of the dimensions. The past and the future will all be simultaniously destroyed. The causal nexus will explode, space-time will collapse in a massive blue shift and the laws of physics will become meaningless. This will leave the Time Lords to ascend into non-corporeal being who will inhabit the next universe. The Time Lords would become creatures of pure consciousness, free from time, cause, and effect. In this retro-evolved state they would be able to sift through all possibilites of alternate time and find specific desired outcomes (much like the Tharils only more so). It should be noted that the Dimensional Ethics Committee had long ago banned all research into allowing the Time Lords to ascend to Higher Dimensions by evolving into non-corporeal beings. This would likely have been a fullfillment of the prophecies of the Green and Black Books of Gallifrey (writen during the Dark Times). These predicted that the Timewyrm would devour the first and the last of the Time Lords - which would be Rassilon. They stated that Rassilon will be crushed in the Timewyrm's jaws during the last moments of the Blue Shift (the final moments of the big crunch). She will collapse the fabric of space-time and the causal nexus. The Final Sanction was probably inspired by the Time Lords of the previous universe who used exactly the same trick to end their war with their Daleks.
(these events probably end 3 days before Day of the Doctor / 400 years after the Time Lords
start fighting the Daleks / the Doctor has seen over 100 years of war)
Engines of War: The Eternity Circle send Dalek Progenitors to 17 different epochs of time. The plan for these Progenitors was for them to breed vast armies of Daleks in uncontested time zones. The Doctor leads Captain Preda's Fifth Time Lord Battle Fleet (made up of a century of Battle TARDISes) to Moldox in the Tantalus Spiral. Over a hundred Dalek saucers are destroyed but all of the fleet is wiped out by a subsequent Dalek Stealth Ship ambush. The Doctor learns that the Daleks have true D-mat technology and that they hope to removed the final Gallifrey from History using the temporal radiation of the Eye of Tantalus. When Rassilon learns this he calls for an emergency session of the High Council. Rassilon decides to use the Tear of Isha (a stellar manipulator capable of collapsing a black hole) to seal the Eye of Tantalus, but this plan would kill almost 100 billion humans on 12 worlds in the Tantalus Spiral. The Doctor protests and is arrested. Between 500 and 1000 TARDISes are dispatched with the Tear of Isha to attack the Tantalus Eye under the leadership of Commander Partheus. The Doctor escaped escapes, hi-jacks Partheus' War TARDIS and leaves the Tear of Isha near Event 2. The Daleks attempt to harness the Doctor's creativity by imprisoning him in the Predator Dalek casing. The Eternity Circle beleives that the Predator Dalek will ensure that the Dalek Empire will control all of space and time. The Doctor takes his teacher Borusa (now the Possibility Engine) and travels into the Eye of Tantalus. Witht the power of the Eye, Borusa d-mats all of the Daleks and their resources inside the Tantalus Spiral.
1691~ (right before the Doctor travels to Gallifrey for the Final Battle)
Warsmiths: Co-ordinator Ferain manages to travel into Skaro's distant past and prepares to poison Skaro so that life never evolves there. The Doctor convinces him not to. The Doctor then sets course for the last Gallifrey.
(3 days after Engines of War / probably right before the beginning of Day of the Doctor)
The Doctor vows that he will end the Time War that very day.
1691~ (at the start of the fall of Arcadia / the start of the last day of the Time War)
The Last Day: The entire Dalek fleet of 10,000,000 timeships attacks the last Gallifrey in the present. The Nightmare Child, the Skaro Degadations, Hordes of Travesty, the Army of Meanwhiles and Never-Weres and the Could've Been King are all part of this assault. There are billion billion Daleks surrounding and attacking Gallifrey. This is the biggest attack the Daleks have ever mounted. Gallifrey is now on the front lines of the Time War. The attack begins by overcoming the 400 sky trenches that defend Gallifrey's best protected the city, Arcadia.
Gallifrey Falls No More (depicting the fall of Arcadia)
1691~ (784~ AF) (during the Battle of Arcadia / the Doctor is about 800 years old / before the theft of Moment is discovered)
The Day of the Doctor: The Warrior (aka the Doctor) witnesses the devestation and fall of Arcadia. After the Fall of Arcadia all the Dalek fleets converge on the Capitol, but the sky-trenches hold them at bay. The mountains of Solace and Solitude and valley between are scorched by numerous Dalek saucers. The fall of Arcadia, and the events that follow horrifies the Doctor, and it will take him until his 13th incarnation to come to terms with it. One of his strongest memories from the Time War is the smell of burning metal. After witnessing the fall of Arcadia the Warrior (aka the Doctor) swears that the War between the Time Lords and Daleks will continue no more. It is the discovery of Final Sanction plan that leads the Warrior (aka the Doctor) to destroy Gallifrey. He does this because he is the only one who could do it.
1691~ (before the end of the Time War)
The Daleks capture the Genesis Ark from the Time Lords, but appear to be unable to open it.
1691~ (during the final day of the War / right before the fall of Gallifrey)
Ashes of Gallifrey: The Doctor tries to destroy a Dalek force attacking a human colony using the tachyon accelerator from the Gallifreyan timeship the Black Ark. The Time Lords send Assault Force Omega to stop the Doctor.
1691~ (784~ AF) (probably around the time Arcadia falls)
The Warrior (aka the Doctor) witness the Daleks fleeing Arcadia. The Warrior (aka the Doctor) laughs in the face of the Nightmare Child.
"Time Lords of Gallifrey, Daleks of Skaro, I serve notice on you all. Too long I have stayed my hand. No more.
Today you leave me no choice. Today this war will end. No more. No More."
- The Warrior (aka the Doctor) .
1691~ (784~ AF) (after all the Dalek fleets begin converging on the Capitol / before End of Time / the Doctor is about 800 years old)
The Day of the Doctor: The Warrior (aka the Doctor) breaks into the Omega Arsenal and steals the Moment. He uses the Great Key of Rassilon to activate the Moment. D-mat weapons delete things and people from history and make that deletion a time locked fixed point with an relative temporal distortion level of almost 3.
1691~ (During the Time War / after the Cult of Skaro is created / possibly
about 20 years before Army of Ghosts /
during the final days of the Time War / after the Fall of Arcadia)
The Cult of Skaro, takes the Genesis Ark, and enters the Ultimate Void between alternate timelines using the Void Sphere (aka Void Ship). From there they wait out the end of the Time War, but they become trapped in the Void. Construction of a Voidship is considered to be impossible by the Time Lords. The sphere appears to have no mass and is not made of atoms. It doesn't give off any heat or other radiation. Such a ship could survive the end of this Universe and access the next Universe that came into being.
1691~ (last day of the Time War)
Sky Jacks: As the number of dead Time Lords and TARDISes destroyed increases the Matrix begins expanding and appropriating new resources to store the minds. This threatens to overload the APC Net. Rassilon decrees that all Time Lords must withdraw from their battle stations and prepare for the Final Sanction.
1691~ (after the Doctor steals the Moment / before he uses it)
President Romana recorded an obituary for Gallifrey. Romana's participation in the Time War leads her to a bad end.
The Capitol on the last day
1691~ (The day before the Final Battle / after the Doctor steals the Moment)
End of Time: The Inner Council meets to discuss the fate of the Time Lords. The Seer prophecizes that the Warrior (aka the Doctor) will use the Moment to destroy Gallifrey and the Daleks. The prophecies of the Dark Times predicted that the Timewyrm would devour the first and the last of the Time Lords - which would be Rassilon. The Seer also indicates that the Doctor and the Master will be the only Time Lords to survive the Fall of Gallifrey. The High Council votes to allow Rassilon to violates the Laws of Time and fulfill the Final Sanction. Only two councilors vote against this. One of them might be the Doctor's mother. The two disenters are scentenced to statue-like immobility as monuments to their own shame. Rassilon has the drumming sound of a Gallifreyan heart beat inserted into the Masters head when he is only 8 years old. This will act a link that will let them escape the Time War. He then uses the link to send a white star arcadian diamond to the Post-War Era so that the Master can use it to create bring Gallifrey through to the Sol System. In the entire Time War, there are only three incidents of something being able to escape from a Time Lock. Unfortunately the Doctor destroys the diamond causing Gallifrey to fall back into the Time War.
The Bad Wolf
1691~ (784~ AF) (The Doctor is about 800 years old)
The Day of the Doctor: Because he is filled with fear, the Doctor returns to the barn (the place where he first faced his childhood fears) with the Moment. The Warrior (aka the Doctor) walks many miles away from the TARDIS so that she won't have to see him use the Moment. The Moment appears in the form of the Bad Wolf, and introduces the Warrior (aka the Doctor) to his future incarnations. With their help, he finally realizes that his Warrior incarnation is worthy of the title of the Doctor. In Parting of the Ways the Bad Wolf claimed that she was ending the Time War. This implies that her appearance in Day of the Doctor was arranged by the real Bad Wolf.
The Final Battle
"Long ago,when even far Gallifrey was young, the peoples of that planet fought amongst themselves. They used what they knew of time travel to gain advantage on their enemies. In doing so, they saw many strange and awful things. One mad prophet martyr journeyed too far and saw the Timewyrm. He saw it in a timeline that he could not be sure of, devouring Rassilon or his shade, during the Blue Shift, that time of final conflict, when Fenric shall slip its chains and all the evil of the worlds shall rebound back on them in war.
For the Timewyrm is the Addanc, the wyrm that circles the cosmos, it is sleeping and it wakes, it is good and evil, choice made carnate."
- The Doctor
1691~ (784~ AF) (The Doctor is about 800 years old from the time of his re-birth
/ 3-5 years before Voyage of the Damned / The
Time Lords exist after 150,000,000 BC / over
five hundred years after the War begins /
Probably less then 250,000,000 years
before 2000 AD / Probably long before the 20th century / the end of the last day of the Time War / after planet Skaro has also
been devastated / 114 years before Sometime Never)
The Day of the Doctor: The Last Great Time War in Heaven ends at the Final Battle - which the Time Lords lose. To prevent the Daleks from becoming the new Lords of Time the Warrior (aka the Doctor) chooses to destroy both Gallifrey and the entire Dalek fleet of 1,000,000 timeships. But, at the last moment, the three Doctors come up with a plan to save Gallifrey. This plan might have subetly re-written history. Using the power of the Moment the Doctor summons his younger and older selves. 13 incarnations (and multiples of some of them) travel to Gallifrey during the last day of the Time War. The 8th Doctor sets up his TARDIS to work out the temporal mechanics calculations necessary to freeze Gallifrey in a single moment of time. It takes several hundred years for the calculations to be worked out, but, by the time of the 13th Doctor (if not sooner) they have completed. While the General of the Time War Council seems annoyed at having to deal with 12 incarnations (including 3 incarnations from his own future), he seems shocked at the idea that there could be a 13th incarnation. The TARDISes of each Doctor position themselves in the lower atmosphere at equidistant points around the planet. With the permission, and assistance of the High Command, and the power of the Eye of Harmony, the entire planet Gallifrey is frozen in an moment of time in a parallel pocket universe. This situation would qualify as a case of Death coming to Time, so it's possible that the General coordinated the Time Lord intelligensia and authorized the use of the Power of Creation to assist with the plan. It is also possible that the Doctor could have exploited Rassilon's attempt to shift Gallifrey to Earth in the year 2009 AD to make this plan work. Gallifrey is lost in another universe in secondary space-time, trapped in a single instant, like an incredibly short time loop with a massive area of effect. The world vanishes from normal space, leaving only dust and rocks. The Matrix creates a partition in the memory store of the Doctor’s TARDIS and uploads a compressed copy of the entire Matrix. The horror experiences drives the Matrix mad. On board the TARDIS, the Encyclopedia Gallifreyan contain the whispers of dead Time Lords. The Matrix will spend centuries learning how to manipulate the TARDIS without the ship or the Doctor noticing.
With the planet gone, the Daleks (and their allies) are destroyed in their own cross-fire. The disappearance of the Time Lords and destruction of the Daleks (and their allies) occurs in a single second. Among the forces who were probably destroyed on the day of the Final Battle of the Time War were Gallifrey's moons, the Nightmare Child, the Skaro Degradations, Hordes of Travesty, the Army of Meanwhiles and Neverweres and the Could've Been King. Unknown to the Doctor, the Dalek Emperor's timeship is knocked into the Vortex and the Emperor alone survives. One surviving Dalek also falls through time, and landed on the Ascension Islands on Earth. He spends the next several decades waiting for orders.
1691~ (784~ AF) (when the Doctor is using the Moment)
Timewarp: Before Gallifrey is trapped in the pocket Universe several Time Lords transfer their concious minds back into specially prepared clones made by Crozier deep beneath Thoros Beta. The 6th Doctor teams up with 3 other future incarnations of himself (probably the War Doctor, 10th and 11th Doctors after Day of the Doctors) to stop them.
1691~ (784~ AF) (The Doctor is about 800 years old / shortly after the Final Battle)
Because of the time streams are out of sync the younger Doctors are unable to retain their memories of what really happened to Gallifrey in the Final Battle. Since the use of a d-mat weapon on Gallifrey itself would remove the reason for ever activating the Moment the Doctor expects to suffer a fair amont of memory loss. For this reason he does not question his inability to remember using the Moment. The Doctor believes that he used the Moment to burn and destroy both the attackers and all of Gallifrey, causing the death of billions. In theory using the Moment should have time locked the final battle, but since it wasn't used the final battle is probably not time locked. This could explain how the Moment was able to bring the Doctor's future incarnations into the battle. The Doctor is the soul remaining Time Lord and his TARDIS is the sole surviving Gallifreyan Timeship. They make up the Second Diaspora. He is sure that he would know if any other Time Lords had survived.
1691~ (~5800 AD / after the Time War)
The Time Lords cease communicating with the Galaxy at large. The time aware species beleive that the Time Lords have been destroyed. They believe that the Moment was responsible for destroying Gallifrey, Skaro, and about 100 other worlds.
