Update to the Interactive Map & Timeline of Roshar


Last year we announced our Interactive Map and Timeline of Roshar. With Rhythm of War now one year old, we're here today to announce a major update! We have expanded the timeline to include events for the entirety of Dawnshard and Rhythm of War, and we've added a few other new features that will be explained below. For a general overview, if you are unfamiliar with the project, see our previous announcement and this trailer. We hope that this map and timeline continues to be a useful tool for refreshing yourself on the books or simply exploring the world of Roshar!

You can visit the Interactive Map and Timeline of Roshar at roshar.17thshard.com!

New Features

  • Events have been updated to include Dawnshard and Rhythm of War.
  • Some previously existing events on the timeline have been updated for improved accuracy based on new information from the latest books.
  • Search: You can now search events, locations, characters, and more! This feature can be found in the top-right corner next to the settings menu button.
  • Measurements: We consulted the royal cartographer Isasik Shulin and did the math! Accessible from the compass-looking button to the top right of the timeline, you may now measure distances across Roshar and get coordinates for any location on the continent. As a bonus, the graticule we draw on the map should now be more accurate, too! 
  • Spoiler Filters: The book filters, under settings, have been reworked to act as spoiler filters! You can now disable events for any books you haven't read, preventing them from appearing on the timeline. Note that those events will still appear under 'Related Events' on the detailed view of locations or characters, however.
  • Sharing: While we don't exactly have Spanreed technology, there are now easily accessible sharing buttons in the details views of everything you can view on the map and timeline! Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and Tumblr are supported by default, but on supported devices such phones, you can use any available sharing option.
  • Updated Shadesmar Map: We found a perpendicularity and had the chance to explore Roshar's Cognitive subastral! The map of Shadesmar has been updated with some of the locations we know so far.

If you have any issues using the map or suggestions for us, feel free to comment here, use our feedback thread, or approach us on Discord. If you want to support what we do, including projects like this, find us on Patreon!

Thanks, and enjoy!

User Feedback


Oh my goodness, this is awesome! Thank you guys so much for all the work you do!

A minor nitpick: the compass-looking button is on the bottom right for me. I'm on a tablet, maybe that's the difference?

Again, this is absolutely brilliant, and I will be staying up too late playing with it.

Top right of the timeline, not the whole page. Sorry, probably could have worded that better!
