The event was revealed under highly suspicious circumstances.
There's at least a 50% chance the entry is completely false.
? The event occurred approximately in this interval.
?? A pretty wild guess as to when this event took place.
The Banquo Legacy (Part 2) Cuthbert Simpson sends the location of the Doctor (from before The Burning) to the Time Lords of Romana's Gallifrey. Not relizing that the Doctor will eventually ally himself with another Gallifrey Romana orders the commander of Presidential Quadrun 19, the Chancellor of Time Present (probably Theorasdavoramilonithene), to lead 9 War TARDISes after the Doctor. Since this is much earlier
These events occure 133 years later for Gallifrey then the do for the Doctor. This is because Romana captured the first version of the Doctor that she could find who had Compassion. It would qualify as a violation of the Protocals of Linierity but Romana would appear to feel that in times of war sacrifies must be made.
1151 (401 years after Dead Assasin / during the early years of the War)
The Event occurs. Under the control of the real enemy (the Daleks) the Ancestor Cells (from which all life in the Universe originated) mounts a poorly executed assault on the Homeworld in an atempt to kill the High Council. The Casts are ineffective against the enemy and a majority of them are destroyed in the attack. Most the remaining ones became little more then ghosts. Several Time Lord weapons systems in the Slaughterhouse (probably including the Great Key of Rassilon) are lost during this attack. With a little luck Gallifrey's defenses repel the Enemy and the attack fails to reach the Gallifreyan reproductive systems.
Faction Paradox Virus
Timeline (aka The Ancestor Cell)
This timeline was created by Doctor's infection by the Paradox Virus on Dust.
The Doctor might be living in the
middle of a
Time War, and
Gallifrey might be being destroyed and undestroyed continuously?
Enemy might be rewriting the Doctor's Biodata all the time? The
Doctor's Biodata could have been rewritten so
he might not always have been half-human.
(Before the Panoptican is built)
The Doctor and Zezanne
(Before arriving in

(several decades after the end of the Curse)
(day 3 / Romana has been
in power for 150 years)
(an alternate version of the beginning of the War as
seen by a renegade Time Lord doped up on Praxis)
However this version of events is derailed when the Doctor decides to change his own personal future history as he knows it by destroying Gallifrey. This creates a new version of history that can be found at the following link...
A New Grandfather Paradox (aka the Doctor)
each breath you take, the virus
removes a little more of your old self, a little more of the hero of
old...cell by cell...rebuilding and reordering your genetic heritage,
each bone in your body transfigured into a shrine to Paradox..."
The Faction Virus that infected the Doctor finally takes hold. He becomes a member of the Faction Paradox. With Mother Mathara assistance he decides to become the ruler of the Faction. By this point the Faction has changed from a group dedicated to breaking the Laws of Time to a terrorist organization dedicated to chaos and destruction in general. The Doctor declares himself Grandfather Paradox and travels back in time to the time the War begins to create a new version of history by conquering Gallifrey and leading the War himself. He has Mother Marthara prepare the way. By this point the Faction has Uncles (assassins), and Skulltroopers.
destruction of Gallifrey)
In retaliation the Time Lord fleet breaks the Laws of Time by destroying the Enemy's Battle-Worlds before there "First Strike" can be launched. The Homeworld exists undamaged again.
1151= The Enemy detonates star-killers in the systems with the materials for the Time Lord fleet would be mined. Thus the Homeworld could (and was destroyed).
1151= This continues until local Time itself collapses from the damage. The war continues.

All of Homunculette's House are forced to hide in silos on Simia KK98 for months while they wait for Enemy Probes to finish scanning the surface.

The Greater Animus is killed in
the War and its Carsenome Walls are destroyed.
1151 (less then a year after research into Familiars begins)
The War in Heaven (from the Time Lord’s point of view) takes the form of bursts of activity followed by long quiet stretches that occur last until the Time Lords have cultivated enough biodata to produce another Wave of soldiers. Loomstacks fill the air of Gallifrey VIII (aka the Homeworld) with smoke so that it is always dark. Once trained the entire Wave is sent to the front lines in another flurry of attacks. War TARDISes are often organized into Centuries (100 units). Soldier sometimes find that their history (past or future) has been altered in such a way to make them incredibly useful in the War. Depending on the nature of their usefulness they will either be promoted or frozen in stasis until needed.
The Enemy (and probably the Time Lords) can detect any incursion into N-Space by time travelers at a tactically important world. Battles in space almost never happen – space being largely irrelevant to history.
The War is fought throughout history. The Time Lords often break the Laws of Time by destroying entire cultures or steering societies. Despite this both the Enemy and the Time Lords appear to have an unwritten agreement to abide by most of the Laws of Time – perhaps from fear of the consequences. Due to the time active nature of the War both sides have all the pre-planning time they require. In the War weapons usually attack the targets identity rather then physical matter. Many tools used in the War are nothing more than ideas. Some (but not all) can exist outside of a living mind. A major War tactic is checking the future outcome of a battle after the forces have been committed but before the war has been fought. Then altering the nature of the forces to fulfill history without wasting extra personnel. A more complex tactic is to plant false history records to thwart the above tactic. 99% of the Time War involves deception and camouflage. Most battles are won but tricking the opposing force into believing that they were the winners. This Time War with the Enemy might be a major shift in reality that is noticed by everyone in the Universe.
Over the course of the War the Time Lords physicaly secure millions of planets and secretly garrison numerous world throughout space and time. Parts of Space-Time have been boobytrapped so that if the Enemy should some how take them from the Time Lords then the Time Lords can destroy those entire Time Zones.
The Faction will set up on the Earth Colony Augustine City on the planet Ordifica.
(2596 AD / 6 years after the
War begins / In the early years
of the War)
Interference: The High Council's Second Wave Second Wave of the House Military destroy Ordifica by removing the actual fabric of space time that supported the planet because it has been infulanced by the Faction Paradox. The part of the Vortex that served as a foundation for Ordifica was punched right out of existence. This is only the second time that the Time Lords have damaged the Space Time Vortex in such a way (the first being when Rassilon released the Yssgaroth). To prevent another invasion by the Yssgaroth the entire planet shaped hole was enshelled in Highest Entropy Matter. The High Council has since officially forbid this tactic. Shuncuker is the last scion of the Faction - the last person to escape the destruction of the Faction's homeworld. She is eventually captured by the Time Lords and imprisoned on Shada.
(6 years after the War begins)
Survivors from Ordifica (who were evacuated before the attack) are used to found several Remote Worlds throughout the Spiral Politic. They sell temporal technology ti various species. Most of the Remote members who escape will set up on the Time Lord Warship headed for Earth. The colony is called Anathema. It is supposed to breed and train the Remote to be the frontline troops for the Faction Paradox. Other organizations founded by the Remote include Order of the Rectangle, the Cult of the Black Sun and the Luminus.

incident / after mothering the Type 103s)
Compassion picks up the Chinese descendent, Carmen Yeh, at Alaska in 1758 AD who had been accidentally left their by another renegade Time Lord. She travels with Compassion for almost 3 years.
(nearly 50 years before Labyrinth of Histories)
The Blood Coteries of Siloportum begin monitoring Shada and the Homeworld.
1158 (46 years before Labyrinth of Histories)
The Blood Coterie Demetra Kein from Siloportum is tried in absentia by the Time Lords and found guilty of illegal bio-manipulation and scentence to Perpituity on Shada. The Blood Coterie tatoo 4 humanoids with the dematerialization codes and other important block transfer equations that make them capable of tracking members of Faction Paradox. They allow the humanoids to be captured by the Time Lords and imprisoned on Shada. The idea being that they will provide a useful resoures when Demetra Kein escapes.
The Second Wave

Anastasia leaves Faction Paradox and founds the Thirteen Day Republic.
1159 (around the time of the War and 409 years after
The Doctor’s companion Fitz Kreiner leaves the Remote and becomes a full member of Faction Paradox. Known as Father Kreiner he hunted down many renegade Time Lords, Including the Master and the Rani (one of which was a clone.)
?? The Daleks acquire the weapons technology of the Deathsmiths of Goth.
(Post Human Era)
Five different TARDIS disappear while traveling in the Posthuman Era. Only one of these TARDISes is ever found. The hideously damage TARDIS was located on an empty planet. Its operator was still alive, but with all his major organs missing. He died a few hours after being returned to the Homeworld.
1160~? The 103-Form named Percival (aka Percy) is killed on the very edge of the Spiral Politic when on a mission for House Mirraflex.
1161~ (a few years after the destruction of Ordifica)
By this point all but 2 of the original Remote colonies have left their colony world. They now cross space in the form of armies and refugees.
? The Time Lords find the Remote’s total lack of agenda, and leadership to be as disturbing as their insatiable desire to overturn any ruling power.
1161 (10 years after the beginning of the war / almost 3 years after Carmen begins to travel with her)
While on the very edge of the Spiral Politic (near the Posthuman regions) Compassion discovered the remains of a 103-Form TARDIS named Percival. She immediately goes to the Homeworld to demand an explanation from the War King. After a secret meeting Compassion travels to several timezones in the Spiral Politic, probably conducting research on the Enemy.
Compassion (aka the 102-Form TARDIS) And The War King (aka the Master)
(10 years after the beginning of the war / right
after meeting with the War King)
After completing her assessment of the enemy Compassion returns to the Homeworld. Her last trip has left her partially disabled and her companion, Carmen Yah, also requires medical attention. Compassion believes the Enemy represents a very serious problem for the Time Lords. The War King claims that the Enemy killed Percival and that the Enemy wants all Time Lords and TARDISes destroyed. Compassion believes him. Compassion makes a deal with the War King to open up a “second front” in the War for the Time Lords. In return she asks for a set of fertile male and female Time Lords and a loom. The Matrix assures the War King that Compassion won’t betray them and Compassion is supplied a Time Lord child of both genders and an old generation loom.
1161 (10 years after the beginning of the war / right after the Percival incident)
Compassion returns Carmen Yeh to her the company of her renegade Time Lord friend. Compassion probably doesn’t take another traveling companion. By this point Compassion believes that the Enemy is a mere distraction for the Time Lords. The true threat is Lolita.
? Carmen Yeh writes of her experiences in book titled Fantastical Travels in an Infinite Universe.
?? (After the War begins)
Compassion’s exploits become legendary on the Homeworld. Some view her as a terrorist and a renegade.
? (Before the invention of Zero Time)
The Time Lords invent the Gravity Spiders. These retro-pre-emptive weapons travel backwards in time searching for gravitational shifts caused by the Enemy’s time traveling techniques. The Spiders merge to form a warhead and destroy the enemy time traveler at the moment of materialization. Though an effective weapon the real reason for their deployment was to force the Enemy to invent Zero Time.
? The Enemy invents Zero Time to clean their timeships and thus remain hidden from the Time Lord’s Gravity Spiders. Zero Time is an artificial form of time. The Time Lords harvested the bubbles of Zero Time that the Enemy had placed through the Universe and analyzed it to learn the capabilities of the Enemy’s timeships and the movements. This is one of the only war victories the Time Lords have accomplished in the field of technological development.
? Zero Time is added to Utterlost in an attempt to open up a new landing zone for the troops. This added time is quickly filled by attacks and pre-emptive attacks. Attempts to place Time Lord agents in stasis to observe the outcome of the conflict have been unsuccessful (possibly the Enemy is attempting the same thing).
? The Battle of Planet Deadlock: Time Lord and Enemy Timeship fleets become interconnected in an attempt to reach the surface of Utterlost, forming a giant sphere around the planet. The Battles carried out within the connected timeships bears more resemblance to urban crime then actual warfare.
? The Battle of Nova Majestic: A TARDIS belonging to House Arpexia kamikazes to cause a nova in an Enemy held system.
? The House of Mirraflex becomes one of the most violent and ruthless of the House Military.
? House Mirraflex destroys a culture that learns of Time Lord activity and then crypto-forms in copy in its place.
? The House of Mirraflex might have D-Matted a potentially skeptical neutral culture. This could have resulted in the anomalous nebula Spancil’s Hypothalamus.
? (Shortly after the creation of the Hypothalamus)
The Battle of the Roar: A battle that ranged over Spancil’s Hypothalamus, Kaiwar, the western arm of the M32 Galaxy, the great Carcorthran Void, and “Behind you.” All locations are now tainted with excessive communication interference and static.
? (Probably before the 3rd wave)
Over the course of the War several Time Lord exiles and renegades defect to the Post Human community.
? (Probably before the 3rd Wave)
The Time Lords Lamia and Mr. Stipes renegade and become assassins in Mrs. Foyle’s Remonstration Bureau.
? (Before the Lethean Campaign)
The assassin-automaton Knight Immortal is fired from Mrs. Foyle’s Remonstration Bureau and joins the Enemy.
? (Early in the War)
The Time Lords reactivate the remaining Babels. Several Renegade Time Lords were bribed into returning to Gallifrey. They were captured, and lobotomized by military psychosurgeons from House Mirraflex. These renegades were connected to the Babels via a neural link to keep the Babels under control.
? (After the War has been going for a while)
Several Houses begin developing new sub-Houses for experimentation. Many abandoned Houses are reactivated to for experimentation and to increase troop numbers.
1162? (1121) (Early War era)
The House Military branch of House Arpexia attempt to test the “Jungle Children” folktale by creating Kaspar Hauser on Earth in 1828. Within 3 weeks he had learned to read, count, write, and play the harpsichord. He also changed the course of German history. After 5 years of exposure to human culture Hauser was removed and the project was declared a failure. The research did however lead to the development of the Temporal Vaccinations.
1162? (Shortly after the “jungle child” experiment)
Entarodora develops her “Disturbance by mystery” theory which will later be used by Robert Scarratt.
1162 (11 years after the War begins / after the Jungle Children project / right before the Lethean Campaign)
The Third Wave of the House Military is created. The biological defenses that Time Lords have against the Great Vampires and the Charon are reconnected in all Gallifreyans. Troops used by the Time Lords are re-engineered by reprocessing their timelines instead of using nanotech. When these non-Gallifreyans are infected with the Immortality Virus they are able to regenerate, but they will have much less control over the process. They physicaly age only one year for ever 3 or 4 that pass. Their cells will "evolve" and "improve" themselves. With each regeneration the subject's appearance and abilities will get farther and farther from the species norm. The Time Lords give the agents special drugs that control how they regenerate, turning them into whatever the Time Lords want them to be. They are re-engineered to regenerate into a more "military" form with each regeneration. These troops quickly lose any semblance of humanoid form. The first regeneration produces built in armor. The 12th creates a being that is hardly even organic. The intermediary officers of the House Military object to these modifications but are overruled. The Third (and subsequent) Waves use Temporal Vaccinations instead of nano-augmentation to protect themselves from damage. They work by introducing several small changes in subjects history makes his history resistant to large-scale change. Soldiers who have undergone temporal vaccinations are sometimes called Hybrids.
(by the time of the Third Wave)
Most Gallifreyans have the capability of regenerating over 60 times.
?? Exact control of regeneration becomes available to all Gallifreyans.
1162 (11 years after the War begins / early in the War / end of the Second Wave)
73 undamaged Casts and the several Babels were sent to the planet Lethe as part of the Lethean Campaign. This Campaign was the last crusade of the Second Wave and the first of the Third Wave. The enemy’s time ship eating weapons destroys the Cast’s control platforms leaving massive firestorms on the planet. The assassin-automaton Knight Immortal is destroyed while fighting for the Enemy in this campaign.
1162 (during the Lethean Campaign)
A group of Walking Dead (sentients with very low probabilities of existing) might have captured a TARDIS during the Lethean Campaign.
1163 (256 AF) (one year after the Babels are deployed)
By this point in the Lethean Campaign the Babels have proven to be one of the few truly effective fighting forces in the Time Lords arsenal. Unfortunately they were all destroyed buy the Enemy when someone (probably the Doctor) killed the Renegade Time Lords who were controlling them. The Doctor was involved in many of the Time War's most important battles.
1163? (After the Third Wave)
Forced military Regen Missions become a standard House Military strategy. The Regenerated Infantry (Regen-Inf) troops sent on these missions will be forcibly regenerated into forms that will best suit the mission. This is done by introducing mutagens into the regenerative matrix that given them defenses, weapons, and Symbiotic Nuclie. These mutagens also make them sterile. They serve as frontline soldiers and siege weapons. Since most of these Time Front troops are recruited from Lesser Species they often permanently stationed off of Gallifrey.
? (Before the attack on the City of the Saved)
House Mirraflex researches using Forced Regeneration to turn Regen-Inf troops into transports for other Regen-Inf troops. The experiment if a failure but inspires the development of the Time Beast.
? A cousin from House Mirraflex spends decades impersonates a messiah-figure on a post-human world to prepare the culture for Regen-Inf recruitment. This is primarily achieved though use of regeneration to “die” and be “reborn.”
Gallifrey adopts a new simplified version of the Omniscate, which shows the Ouroboros even more clearly.
? (Sometime after the Percival Incident)
The Time Lords abandon almost all of their ceremonies and rituals in an effort to focus attention on the War. The Houses represented by the High Council are no longer stable. In fact they change frequently.
? (After the
The House of Tracolix becomes ruthlessly ambitions and eventually manages to acquire a seat on the High Council. They are allied with the minor Newblood House of Lolita. The War King see’s Lolita as the future and doesn’t believe he has the power to stop Lolita – only to slow her down.
?? Biodata inoculations are given to all members of Lesser Species who visit the Homeworld.
1165 (1124) (14 years after the War begins)
The Star Chamber uses the Analytical Engine to attack the Eleven Day Empire.
1166 The Time Lords and the Enemy enter an "entrechment phase" of the War.
Captain in Waiting Robert Scarratt
(20 rapid growth years before the 4rth Wave)
The House of Xianthellipse is a major advocate of diversity and makes extensive use of biodata from Lesser Species for the Fourth Wave Project. The House begins actively crossbreeding troops with Lesser Species. The Fourth Wave of the House Military begins to be "naturaly" born. The Gallifreyan who will become known as Robert Scarratt of the House of Xianthellipse is created (probably by natural childbirth).
1168 (17 years after the War begins)
The Fourth Wave of the House Military is created by the House of Xianthellipse. The House is a major advocate of diversity and makes extensive use of biodata from Lesser Species. The House of Xianthellipse begins actively crossbreeding troops with Lesser Species. The success of their wartime efforts is quite impressive. Much to the distress of the High Council, they are capable of breeding with lesser species. Despite the objections from House Mirraflex the Wave is quite stable and effective. Robert Scarrett becomes the most successful member of the Fourth Wave (and House Xianthellipse).
1168? (After the War begins)
By this point even the High Council fully accepts and endorses biological reproductive methods. However House Mirraflex is very critical of Newblood House who pollute their biodata with material from Lesser Species. They outright refuse to work with House Xianthellipse.
The Time Beast Assault
Amanda Legend Lefcourt largely handles actual leadership of House Hafling because Grandfather Halfling (probably the Doctor) is rarely in the City. The Doctor was involved in many of the Time War's most important battles.
?? The Ghost Cluster devices are created by the Time Lords. These devices work by reducing a beings reality quotient, or probability of existing (and thus the effect he has on collapsing quantum waves). The end result is that the actions and observations of target (or Walking Dead as they are sometimes called) have almost no effect on history. Even the slightest change tampering with upstream history can erase the target from existence. Ghost Clusters are often deployed against members of the lesser species (like the Society of St. George) who know too much about the Time Lords.
Earth begins to suffer from numerous random
explosions. These explosions are caused by Time Ships who are
targeting points in space time that could have had great significance
in the future. The people killed in these explosions are
(probably by design) largely removed from the cultural context of
Humanity. Thus (by definition) nobody important is ever
killed. Thus their actions (even before their deaths) don't
(Before This Town Will Never Let Us Go)
A Timeship probably "crashes" on earth and is buried beneath a town.
?? (Possibly during the First Wave)
This Town Will Never Let Us Go: The Faction Paradox attempts to convert pop star Tiffany Korta into a cultural Loa (by immensely boosting her cultural body's size) so that she can pilot the Timeship (probably a TARDIS) crashed under a Town on Earth. Cultural Loa are organisms made of pure culture that can only be seen from outside of Time. This Town Will Never Let Us Go: Anthropological Predictions show that Humanity was on the verge of evolving into a non-linear time-active culture capable of processing entire universes of information called Homo Imago. This is called The Younger World Theory. Humans and Gallifreyans are the only races whose cultures can not be accurately predicted by these projections. Humanity would have had a field of comprehension larger then the Time Lord’s Noosphere. It might have made them travlers in the 6th and 7th dimensions of Possibility and Imagination. The human named Valentine is working for the one of the Higher Powers (probably the Enemy) and plans on destroying a Timeship that crashed on earth. The Great Houses deploy a Ghost Cluster device on him (almost certainly to stop him from detonating the bomb). Despite this the Timeship is still accidentally destroyed. An unexpected side effect of this is that Humanity misses its first opportunity to achieve its conversion into Homo Imago. Instead of making that leap humanity slides into a state of virtual cultural and technological stasis for at least the next 10,000,000 years. Rumors suggest that this stasis might have been arranged by the Time Lords, possibly using the Jallama Reed and New Young God’s Transmissions.
?? The Houses of Arpexia and Xianthellipse deem the Ghost Cluster Devices to be immoral and officially forbid their use.1176 (25 years after the War / 1850 AD)
The Faction Paradox attempts to excalated the violence of
the War using the Remote. This attempt fails.
The Faction Paradox severs contact with most Remote
groups to give them a few generations to develope. Several Remote
colonies spread throughout space and time.
(Several decades after the War begins)
The battles between the Enemy and the Time Lords are now conducted with great subtlety – with an emphasis on disinformation.
1180? Cwej enrolls in the House Military Academy on Sol III known as the Gauntlet.
1180? Several attempts are made to recycle, and super-cultivate biodata for use in the War.
(29 years after the War begins)
While at the Gauntlet the Time Lords use Cwej as the template for their Army of One project. The project (which is a violation of the Laws of Time) is undertaken because the only resource shortage the Time Lords (or the Enemy) have is biodata. They need troops and agents to fight the War. 216 alternate Cwejen are produced by temporally diffracting the timeline of the original. The Cwejen are a complete success but all other attempts fail (in a biologically messy fashion). The Time Lords claim that the failure is due to not having the right subject. Damen Cwejen takes command of the “Little House of Cwejes.”
1181 (Exactly 30 years after the War begins)
House Arpexia’s Strategist Entarodora addresses the Fifth Wave. She says that their uncertainty about the leadership of the Enemy keeps them from becoming overconfident. This address becomes known as the Monsters Coda and is adopted as a standards House Military text.

Cousin Gable (Michael Brookhaven) Aquarius a Celestis’s Meme-Mine from fellow Faction Paradox agent, Chad Vandemeer. He uses it to create a Genuine Concept Imagineering Processor and programs this device to create false ulterior worlds to film for his movies. The first Hollow Spectaculars are created. Brookhaven begins programming the GCI to make his movie Mujun: The Ghost Kingdom. Gable is targeted by the House Military when it is discovered that he had successfully diffracted himself. Agent Cwej is sent to destroy Faction Hollywood.

? A group of Seventh Wave troops are stranded at the forward end of Frontier Time with a Type 89 TARDIS. Seeing that they would have to cross large areas of temus incognita, Quintessence Officer Hierarchio decided to have the group settle in this local area. While searching for an acceptable planet near the Anvil Stars they discovered that the Normal Space Universe was spawning new universes. The spawning of these universe was a deliberate action by some unknown faction from the future. The development of these universes was being overseen by several “gardeners” who were operating under the guidance of this unknown future power. Only certain budding universe with the correct specifications were being allowed to survive. The Gardeners were ensuring that the surviving universes would develop into the Intercreationals known as Leviathans. (Intercreationals are the organisms that live between the N-Space Universe and the other Universes.) The idea that someone would create numerous Leviathans inside in N-Space horrified the Time Lords and the information was classified (though the Celestis acquired a copy). The gestation period of the Leviathans is such that it is unlikely to affect the War in Heaven.

The Doctor uses an illegal Possibility Generator to write mary-sue adventures stories. He publishes An Adventurer in Space and Time, which is available through public register video. The Doctor becomes Gallifrey's most popular living author.
?? The Doctor sees several alternate universes with alternate Gallifreys. Including...
A Gallifrey where Sorcery is used instead of Science (possibly the Ferutu Universe)
A Gallifrey where the High Council is as steeped in blood (probably the War in Heaven) and the world was cursed and the children died. (probably the Classic Universe)
One of these Gallfreys had the Doctor as a traveler.
All of these Gallfreys followed the Doctrine of Non-Interference.
There is a Gallifrey were the Doctor returned and led a bloodless revolution.
?? Omega has seen an alternate Gallifrey where there was no Rassilon and the Time Lords were Gods because of Omega. The possibility of this alternative universe might have been negated by Rassilon in the Classic Universe.

Gallifrey is even more stagnant now then it was when the Doc was at the Academy. Presidents pledge to do their duty until death. There have been 1000 presidents (instead of just over 400). Many presidents die before reaching a second term. Most don't survive a single regeneration. Thalak Empire controls half of Mutter's Spiral.

Lolita becomes the Grandmother of the House of Lolita on the Homeworld. She is the only member. Lolita sees the War as useful for convincing the Time Lords that they are physical beings and vulnerable. She really doesn’t care who the enemy is. She takes the Time Lord prejudice against lesser species to an extreme. This is only one of the many Newblood Houses that are being founded. Most are experiments in reproductivity and many have an interest in alien biology and culture.

Most abandon the Observer Theory, and those that still support it now believe that each observer is in turned observed by some other even higher observer. In fact the Guardians are dedicated to serving as the observers of the Time Lords. The supporters belive that this continues until the Ultimate Observer (or God) is reached. Some Post Humans who know of the City of the Saved beleive that humanity might one day become the Ultimate Observer.

By this point in the War Gallifreyan Culture has been majorly restructured. Most Time Lord agents appear to know that the Original Gallifrey has already been "wiped." There have been at least 12 cloneworlds created by this point. Time Lord Warriors receive their orders from the High Command. Another organization connected with the War Looms is the War Council of War Cardinals. All officers must obey the War Rule. The War Looms produce hoards of new Time Lords who have their training loaded into their minds. Part of the Academy training includes torture and fighting in the Death Zone (possibly at the hands of a restored Borusa). “Change is good.” – “Local situations require local measures.” – These are both mantras from the Academies during the War with the Enemy. They also teach that there is no skill more important then the abillity to get out of tight corners. Newly created warriors are called the Newborn. Most of the battles take place in the Vortex. Some even ocur within the Ultimate Void. When the battles do occur in N-Space many lesser species find their history's subtly altered and rewritten. The Time Lord troops are able to defy chronology and act faster then would be possible. They are force regenerated into forms that will blend in on whatever planet they go to. The veterans of the First Wave are the only officers allowed to keep humanoid bodies. Biodamper rings are very effective devices that are used prevent the person wearing it from being detected and tracked. Time Lord weapons can insert monkey biodata into its victums timeline. Only one out of a 1000 Time Lords survive more than 15 missions. By this point Gallifrey VIII smells of rendered animal fat and bone smoke. 30,923 words have been created by the Gallifreyans to deal with the War. The Time Lords are constructing Type 103-105 TARDIS. By this point the Doctor is considered a peasant hero, a bandit, and the symbol of independent wasteful initiative. Many illegal “historical romances” are circulated on Gallifrey IX about his adventures. These include the story “Doctor ? – In an exciting Adventure with the Enemy.” Most Time Lords like him dead (they think he’s slightly safer that way).

The Time Lords invent the Cold. A substance that exists as a liquid gateway/buffer between the Normal Space and the Yssgaroth-Space of the Vampires. The Cold is probalby based on Validium. When you look closely at the cold you can see the Yssgaroth trying to escape. The Cold can also hold objects inside itself - keeping them in perfect stasis. When activated everything in the immediate area is pulled into Yssgaroth-Space. The Remote will make masks out of Cold.

The Time Lords create an ultimate weapon of mutual assured destruction in the form of a Gallifreyan Warship named Anathema. The Warship is about 7,000 km in diameter. It is black and made in the shape of the seal of Rassilon. It's design is based on prototype left over from the end of the Eternal Wars. The Time Lords install the Cold as the heart of Anathema’s weapons systems. It uses the Cold to remove whole planets from the Space-Time Continuum, and place them in the realm of the Vampires.

(During the Time
The Time Lords capture several million Daleks but cannot bring themselves to destroy them. They imprison them (with their Travel Machines) in a dimensionally trancendental Time Lord Prison Ship. This Ark requires 13 square miles (48 sq km) of space to release its prisoners. It would appear that these are most in not all the Daleks captured by the Time Lords during the War. Once captured by the Daleks the Prison Ship will be know as the Genesis Ark.

At this point is quite easy to use a TARDIS to vist alternate universes if you know the correct phase shift.
(During the Time War / near the end of the Time War)
Having acquired the Genesis Ark from the Time Lords the Cult of Skaro enters the Void between alternate timelines using the Void Sphere. From there they wait out the end of the Time War. Construction of a Voidship is considered to be impossible by the Time Lords. It appears to have no mass and is not made of atoms. It doesn't give off any heat or other radiation.

Time Lords exist after
150,000,000 BC / over five hundred years after the
War begins / well
before 2596 AD)
The Last Great Time War in Heaven ends at the Final Battle - which the Time Lords lose. To prevent the Daleks from becoming the new Lords of Time the Doctor chooses to destroy both Gallifrey and the entire Dalek fleet of 1,000,000 timeships (probably using the Power of Creation as this would quallify as a case of Death coming to Time). He jettisoned the Eye of Harmony into Gallifrey's primary star, causing a supernova that destroying both the Time Lords and the Daleks in a single second. Among the forces who were (probably) also destroyed on the day of the Final Battle of the Time War were the Nightmare Child, the Skaro Degradations, Hordes of Travesty, the Army of Meanwhiles and Neverweres and the Could've Been King. Gallifrey's primary becomes a neutron star, but the blast can still be seen when viewed from Simia KK98 in the 26th century (which means that Gallifrey much emerg from Inner time less then 50,000 years from the 26th century). Because of the Quantum Barrier the planet Gallifrey is only scorched until it is nothing but rocks and dust, barren of life - The Time Lords have been destroyed. The ruins of Gallifreyan buildings can still be found in 2596 AD. By this point the planet Skaro has also been devestated. The Doctor is the soul surviving Time Lord and his TARDIS is the sole surviving Gallifreyan Timeship. They make up the entire Second Diaspora. He claims that he would know if any other Time Lords had survived. Unknown to the Doctor the Dalek Emperor's timeship is knocked into the Vortex and the Emperor alone survies.
