Ciara's Timeline

As has been mentioned on the page for Ciara's Song the timeline seems out of whack compared to other timelines. This is intended as a direct comparison to show where these inconsistencies lie.

10 Midsummer of the this year brings news of Yvian’s death.3 She turns ten sometime later.4 The events of Web of the Witch World take place some six months after those of Witch World It's not directly stated in either of the two books when, exactly, their events take place. The seasons are unmentioned, but are almost certainly not winter. It's easy to imagine that the events of Witch World took place in late summer or early fall (which matches Ciara's birthday) and that those of Web of the Witch World could have taken place in late spring or early summer of the next year. This would leave ample time for them to receive a message by midsummer.
11 there is news of Alizon fighting overseas5 In many books, this is the Year of the Fire Troll. In Silver May Tarnish the year of the Pronghorn is some thirteen years before the Year of the Fire Troll. In Year of the Unicorn, however, it is mentioned initially that the fighting in High Hallack had a handful of years of peace.

28 In Three Against the Witch World it is mentioned that after her last child is born Jaelithe passes into a form of trance which lasts several months. "By the end of our birth year Pagar was strong enough to risk battle against a confederation of rivals. And four months later he was proclaimed Duke, even along the border. "
29 "It was heading into another year when the Lady Jaelithe at last aroused…when the Seneschal Koris and his lady wife, the Lady Loyse, came to South Keep at the waning of the year to make merry, since the almost ceaseless war had been brought to an uneasy truce and for the first time in years there was no flame nor fast riding along either border…but that was only a short breathing space."11
30 Pagar is crowned duke of Kars.12 Pagar is 33 when he launches a campaign to reclaim Verlaine and he also starts raiding the border of Estcarp13 In Three Against the Witch World "For it was four months into the new year when the threat of Pagar came into being… By the end of our birth year Pagar was strong enough to risk battle against a confederation of rivals. And four months later he was proclaimed Duke, even along the border." It is in this same year he begins border raiding against Estcarp. In retaliation Hostovrul of the Sulcar leads twenty ships to attack Karsten, even attacking the city of Kars. This attack leaves Pagar’s hold on Karsten weakened so that shortly after Pagar’s half-brother challenges his rule.14
