Medieval America Mark III

Minor aesthetic note: Laskan images of the Ten Commandments are probably depicted off of the model of Tlingit coppers.

I didn't include it explicitly, but yes I have accounted for this. This synthesis post actually came about as I was preparing a timeline, which draws a mnore explicit connection between revolts following Etrabolta's rise to powerand the settlement of Vegas. Though note that Randall House was not, if memory serves, a leader of any Californian rebellion, but rather a descendant of such rebels.
I look forward to your Timeline

Regarding Las Vegas
"The Californians were predominantly anti-Scientology rebels, though their rebellion had more to do with a desire for power on the part of their leader, one Randall House, former mayor of Oakland. " - Part I of Lost Vegas
 
California Timeline

2069: Some semblance of order is re-established in California by a new Governor in Sacramento, but his control over many peripheral areas is weak. Arbitrarily this is deemed the beginning of the "99 Years" in Southern California, the period of chaos and tribal warfare that is the origin tale of Neo-Medieval Scientology, despite the fact that Socal had been in chaos for decades prior to the re-establishment of government in the North.

2168: Contact is re-established between the north and south. A deal is struck between the Governor and the various local Scientologists to preserve their privleges.

2180s: First Writers Guild established in Elay.

2270s: On the west and east coast, heavy cavalry begins to replace the horse archery tactics which dominated the continent. Etrabolta dynasty establised on the back of a peasant rebellion, the so-called "Golden Age." Large numbers of the anti-Scientologist faction are exiled as suppressives to Nevada and Old Vegas. Scientologist families and Church organs increasingly move north to Sacramento, away from Elay.

2290s: First contact is established between California and Hawaii by wayfarers who land in Santa Barbara.

2300s: California invades Bajo Colorado, imposing Scientology.

2320s: California launches its ill-fated invasion of Cascadia.

2340s: Fall of House Etrabolta, California descends into warring states. On the basis of theological disputes and their declining power, groups of Shoremen and southern clergy calling themselves the "Loyal Officers" secure independence for Socal, declaring the Free Zone. Bajo also breaks away. A new dynasty is established in the Republic, but it does not regain direct control of the south.

2390s: Socal conducts its first ever conquest of Bajo Colorado. California trades with Las Vegas.

2500s: A lifer coup briefly siezes control of the throne. It is put down, but the power of the throne is severely weakened leading to a century of decentralization and on and off civil war. Due to the relative peace of Socal, the leadership is capable of funding the construction of the Los Angeles Labyrinth. Cascadian merchants seize San Francisco. Burned Men invade Central Valley. Catholic priests arrive in Bajo Colorado.

2600s: Sacramento under Jayden Siliconheart expels the Cascadians from San Francisco and unites California in what is called the All Men's War. Using the wealth gained from the conquests, the Californians construct the Sacramento Tower. Socal descends into a civil war between Los Angeles, San Diego and the inland regions due to their own Lifer coup. The California Republic conquers Socal during the southern civil war.

2700s: Adam Lang launches his ill-fated expedition to retake Alcatraz and conquer California.

2710s: California sponsors an expedition led by a claimant to Vegas's throne to establish it as a vassal. It ends poorly. [NOTE: This date will likely be revised backwards on account of the improbability of Hoover Dam surviving quite so long.]

2780s: The Black Plague strikes.

2860s: A Lifer coup by the Byiner slave unit takes place in California and Socal breaks free.

2870s: The Scoro Clan invades from Nevada, conspiring with the Guardian of the East and certain elements of the Shore. Ultimately the Guardian of the North throws in with the Scoro.

2920s: The Scoro Clan has fully 'Calicized.' The female priesthood and the Shore of Women are created. The third governor of the Scoro dynasty, not yet entirely out of touch with his father's barbarian past, got it in his mind to launch a war against Deseret to conquer it for California. The Californian army was successful, but supply lines were too long. The campaign, supposed to be a conquest, became a raid, and the Californians turned back to get home before the heat of summer.

2930s: Continuing a long tradition of armed diplomacy and conquest, the Dias Dynasty of Bajo Colorado briefly rules over the southern cities of Socal.

2950s: President Dias's dynasty in Bajo collapses, dividing Bajo into three warring states.

2960s: The Guardian of the North has begun providing a trickle of aid to the Columbians to weaken the Cascadians.

2961: Obadiah Olmstead arrives in California.

2967: Obadiah Olmstead departs California.

I like this a lot, great job!
However, a couple points - firstly you say California invades Bajo Colorado in the 2320s but then you say Socal invaded for the first time in the 2390s. Is this a mistake or am I misunderstanding something?

Secondly, the LA Labryinth is built by Vegasite slaves IIRC so it can't be built in the 2500s. However, I do agree that Las Vegas should collapse earlier so perhaps we have Vegas collapse in the 2500s instead?

Besides that, this all looks pretty good.
