Can anyone supply a decent timeline of the events with Perrin vs. everyone else in TOM? Generally all the other books had the POVs within days of each other, but seeing Perrin's TOM POV being during the TGS POV for everyone else was a bit confusing...

Also, its kind of nice seeing a timeline laid out, i wonder if they'll ever be an official one, like at the back of a poster or something...

http://www.stevenac.net/wot/wotchron.htm is the chronology that most HCFFs rely on. It hasn't been updated for ToM the last time I looked, but hopefully it will be eventually. I've seen at least one first draft of a timeline linked in another thread about the difficulty of keeping things in synch, but I doubt it's accuracy is very good just yet -- it is a work in progress.

ETA: Morat'colm is theone with the work in progress:

Even if it takes them extra time to get it together, this is one thing I would love to see in the Encyclopedia in a couple years. Even if certain things were in slight contradiction with details in the novels (likely), at least we would have a definitive official chronology. They could probably include things that happen offscreen as well, like the chronology offered in LotR did with Sauron's attacks on Lorien, etc.
