I was looking forward to this too, but looking at the draft it seems that we have mostly the same events shown previously in 'Genertela, Crucible of the Hero Wars', 'Missing Lands' and 'The Hero Wars Campaign' . There are a few new events and prophecies, but not much huge and earth-shaking (although glacier shaking may be a different matter). The info is spread out throughout the book and there is no timeline. Some of it takes the form of "If these things happen, then that will happen." which is cool, but doesn't lend itself to the making of a timeline.

Maybe. The book indicates that the HW will be detailed in future supplements. I was working on a timeline last year and was advised to wait until after the GtoG was published. Maybe MD has a plan in this area?

I think it would be a great stretch goal, maybe for a supplemental PDF?
