Loyalty takes place in it's own canon verse but is an alternate Universe and as such the timelines will be different. Even though the title is called Fallout Equestria the story itself takes places in the land of Andalusa. The measurement of time can not be translated into human years but for the sake of this timeline each bullet point DURING the great war is estimated to take place at least 7 weeks to a year apart.
Pre-War refers to Andalusas history before the Great War

Queen Nighttide and her loyalist attempt to usurp her husband, King Stellaraine, for fears of his weakness endangering the kingdom but eventually fails and is exiled from the land. Failing to find a second ruler for the throne, King Stellaraine is unable to keep the Monarchy in order and it falls into a state of chaos. It is believed that around this time Queen Nighttide searched minor lands and came in contact with the Zebra kingdoms.
- Age of Enlightenment (Renaissance Age 5,000 B.C.E)
- After years of exile, Queen Nighttide returned to Andalusa only to find it in ruin. Using the knowledge she gained from her travels she was able to rebuild the nation into a Queendom and eventually became it's absolute monarch.

Great-War Era Edit
(Authors note: Since Zebras originate from Africa I thought it fitting to give Zebras of Aziza some African affiliations, specifically Egypt)
- Unfit to Rule (600 B.C.E)
- The Zebra nation of Azizi increases military spending and shuts down the embassy within Chromie. They view the Andalusans as selfish and arrogant do to its immense power and wealth.
Announcement from the Zebra Pharaoh of Azizi
“As of this moment it is with a heavy heart that I denounce the rule of Andalusas' legitimacy. Due to their incompetence, the world has come under threat countless times over the ages. No more will we sit by and rely on others to save us. I urge our people and the Kelz (Kelz are members of the Zebra council) to take necessary measures to ensure the protection of our nation”
- In response to these events, the royals of Andalusa call for a meeting with the Pharaoh along with members of the Kelz. A few weeks after the meeting, the Azizi nation sends its military close to Andalusan lands to conduct military war games as a show of force.
Increased Tensions (500 B.C.E)
- A skirmish breaks out between a squad of Zebra Acolytes and the Andalusan Defensive Guard leaving few causalities. Both sides blame each other for being the aggressor.
- In an attempt to deescalate already rising tensions the Pharaoh of Azizi agrees to meet with the now King Sunlit only to have his airship shot down as soon as it arrives within Andalusas border crashing into the Hollowed Gorge. The Zebra people grow outraged at this supposed treachery and the Kelz declare war on Andalusa. To this day the Andalusan people deny the assassination of the Zebra Pharaoh claiming unknown forces were at work.
- King Sunlit forces himself to fight for his people on the front lines. While on the battlefield reports claim he refused to kill a single Zebra in hopes that the Azizas would see that cooperation between the species could still be salvaged. Unfortunately he becomes gravely injured and falls to a coma.
