Timeline - Kakita Koshin

I have been writing, roleplaying, and just plain boring people to death with Koshin for some time now; some have born it all in good graces, and others...well, never mind that.  This timeline is probably rough and error-filled, but it is a start.  Other stories with Koshin are cited below.  It was compiled using information from the Time of the Void sourcebook and the Oriental Adventures d20 book.  It's amazing how much time I've spent in Rokugan...not that I have any regrets. - Brent
