Awesome! Seriously, this is the only thing keeping the whole thing straight for me. Keep up the great work!
Thank you! I have updated the first post with the new info from Fang Man's bio.
Soooo... how many times does Skeletor travel back to Preternia? And what good would it do him in MOTUC canon to stop the building of Castle Grayskull? I mean, in that case the power just wouldn't be transferred into the orb and stay inside the Sword of He. Nothing gained.
Do we know when the Lake of Gnarl became the Valley of Gnarl? Is it explained on one of the maps? I wish I had that...
Not really, I think we only received a keep reading the bios answer.
Holy crap this is good stuff!
Edit: Soooooo... NY Toyfair, hmmm? Do we have the final versions for those bios yet?
Snake Face – Most Gruesome Of The Snake Men Warriors
Real Name: Cyltho Ssstavvve
Originally a minor training officer in the Unnamed One's serpent army. Cyltho Ssstavvve drew King Hssss' attention after he was enchanted with the ability to turn his enemies into stone by the Great Black Wizard. Quickly brought into Hssss' inner circle. Snake Face often acted as the Viper King's second in command during the Great Wars with Grayskull. He was trapped with the entire Snake Army in the Void for five millennia, but eventually was called forth by King Hsss to do battle once again after their release – this time against new enemies – He-Man and the Masters Of The Universe! Snake Face slithers after his enemies then turns him to stone!
The Fighting Foe Men - Evil Eternian Pirate Clan
Real Names: Shield Maiden Sherryln, Dittstroyer, Dawg-O-Tor
After the Great Wars ended and Eternia was left without a king, a group of renegade pirates as the Fighting Foe Men took over the Valley of Gnarl and all the surrounding territories. Spreading fear throughout the land, they built great machines like the Roton and Talon Fighter to terrorize the populace. Challenged and eventually defeated by a champion of the north, the Fighting Foe men were cast into a glacier and magically frozen for over five thousand years. Eventually, they were discovered by Hordak who returned to Eternia and set them free in return for serving in his army during the Second Ultimate Battleground.
Strobo - Light Powered Cosmic Enforcer
Real Name: Gepher
Chosen as Zodac’s replacement in the Cosmic Enforcers, Strobo was tasked by the Overlords of Trolla to investigate his predecessor’s assassination on Eternia. Finding Jitsu ruling Snake Mountain and evil spreading across the land, Strobo carried out his Masters’ assignment by forcefully maintaining neutrality in He-man’s absence. He turned the tide of several battles, fighting both with and sometimes against, the remaining Masters of the Universe. Stobo wears armor enhancements originally created by the scientists of Anwat Gar. His chest plate can project force fields and energy blasts to stun or even disintegrate those who oppose his will. Stobo uses the forces of light to battle his enemies.
Karatti - Bone Bashing Mutant
Karatti has a head as hard as the rocks of the desert region of Denebria where he lives. Unfortunately for the other evil mutants he also posses as much brain power as one of the rocks. Although armed with a laser ax, it is the terrible bone-crushing karate blows that make him so fearsome. Fortunately for the Galactic Protectors, he is as cowardly as most of the other inhabitants of Denebria and will only attack those whom he knows to be weaker than himself. He gladly allied himself with Skeletor who offered promises of power and wealth to all who aided him in mutiny against the Horde. Karatti uses his combat moves to fight the Galactic Protectors.
King He-Man - Heroic Ruler of Future Eternia
Real Name: Adam of the House of Randor
After his sister defeated Horde prime, the threat of Adam’s old enemy Skeletor once more called He-man to one final battle. In an epic duel on the Jaw Bridge of the great Temple of Power on Trolla, He-man at last defeated Skeletor in single combat. Recovering the Vortex Key, He-man could now return to his home world. There he found his queen mother keeping the throne and mourning the passing of King Randor. Taking his rightful place as his father’s heir, Adam became King He-man ruling over all Eternia with his wisdom and strength. He married Teela and together with their son Dare took over his father’s legacy as the new He-ro, defender of Eternia and the wielder of the Sword of Power.

MOTUC WISH LIST: SNARRRLLL:
Thanks a lot! I have updated the first post with the new info!
Thanks for the bios update.
We still don't know who is the Unnamed One.
I am not really sure if ANYONE knows...
Awesome, absolutely awesome! I love this timeline.
This timeline is great! It is really helpful to see everything written out in one place.
At one point in time I thought Oo-Larr, and Wun-Dar were one in the same. This timeline helps out greatly, I've read it like three times already, it's great.
Nice thanks for doing this it helps a lot
Great timeline! This clears up a whole lot for me and had to have taken a lot of time to put together. Something seems screwy with Tytus though. His bio mentions sacrificing his life to stop a rampaging Megator, but on this timeline he's building Grayskull and stuff after Megator gets crushed in the tower. I'm not saying your timeline is wrong, it may be a discrepency in the bios. Something just doesn't jive.
500 years makes way more sense than 5000. Even 1000 would make more sense. 5000 years is a long, long time.
Well, the fans *did* complain that 500 years do not feel like enough time between a prehistoric era and present day Eternia.
It also makes King Hiss' three-century rule over Eternia seen pretty lame. I wonder if that got beefed up to 3000 years.
