Since the mod extends the timeline and therefore game history, it also adds new bookmarks to help find out the main events in history. Some of the new ones are taken from other Paradox games and their mods.

There are, however, three bookmarks removed from the Vanilla game (Empires of the Sands, The First Nations, and The Kingdoms of the East) since they were just 11.11.1444 starts but with a different camera orientation.
