I know there's the one in the Main Book, but has anyone put together an expanded version drawn from the entire line?

Nice.

This seems like a good choice for a community project. The first step would be to just look for the literal timelines in all the books. I'll put some time in on that, at least. The annoying part would be to sift through the text, including Rifter articles, for mentions of events not found in a timeline. The tedious part would be to collate everything.

Well, you've got the four I found in a first pass, if not more besides. Several books have history sections not reduced to summaries. If you could say which books you've gone through I can perhaps be of some help.
Book 1 pg 281
Book 8 pp 8-11
Book 11 pp 10-12
Book 16 pp 16-21

Comment: The greatest part of the writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. - Samuel Johnson, 1775
Rifter #63 has official cannon timeline of Timiro. Very impressive timeline. Looking forward to adding to it.
