I'm trying to figure out when the fighting between Altheria and Seremas took place.

The ARP book states:
ARP page19 wrote:
After close to a dozen years of brutal bloodshed, Altheria knew peace once more. While rebuilding the nation would take close to two score years, Altheria is once more the beacon of human achievement upon the continent of Onara.


This suggests that the fighting ended 40ish years ago. BUT in the later Codex of Heroes the age range listed for those taking the background of "Veteran of the Altherian War" is much younger.
CoH page 54 wrote:
Minimum Age: 80 (elorii) or 35 (any other)

It looks like if a human was 18(ish) in the last year of the war then the war would only have ended around 17(fish) years ago.

The two sources are roughly a generation apart.

I have always been running off of the Codex of Heroes timeline. Later product, more specific dates, in the crunch section and not just fluff. But have been talking with other friends about Altheria recently. And the issue is something we are scratching our heads over.

Does anyone have any knowledge of when the war ended?

According to the timeline on the last page of Ssethregore for ARG, the dates for the Altherian-Entaran War are 1031-1043.

Other sourcebooks may vary ;-)

Thanks for the tip. I would never have looked there.

Being both the most recent product and an actual timeline(!) is pretty solid. Though I find it at least a little bit funny & weird that it doesn't agree with either earlier source. Maybe they just tried to split the difference?

Thanks!
