This calendar will be updated as important events take place. Important events aren't necessarily plot-driven ... characters' first posts will be considered important events, as well. They are not always actual journal entries, either. If you feel that other players need to know a date or time that something took place, leave a comment here and it can be added to the calendar. For example ... Pamela Isley is already involved with Dr. Woodrue at the start of the game, but Kate may (or may not) choose to make a note on the game calendar of the date that she began to work with him. The movies' time span is also included here, for reference... which also means that if you want to add someone's reflection on events that happened during those times, you're more than free to go for it.

You're not limited to a specific time period - though the game starts in November of '95 and works it way onward, you're more than welcome to flashbacks and other history posts. Just please, please consider other players' characters and how they might be affected if you choose to write slightly ahead.

Also, I take this time to note, once more, that the first three Batman movies are the only ones considered game canon. Batman Begins is to be used as a framework, and ... well ... we're hoping people just plain ignore Batman & Robin because ... yes.


The calendar is your friend. Check it when you need it. Use it. Add to it. Love the calendar. It loves you, too. ;D

PS. If you want an event marked by a journal post to be added to the calendar, do your nice lovely mods a favor and include a link to said entry in your comment? I'll love you for it. Really, I will.
