* Also common amongst ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fics, set before the establishment of the Hakurei Barrier. Since some characters are TimeAbyss, this is fairly easy. How the characters worn ElegantGothicLolita outfit during Heian era is never pointed out.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s 2004 and 2005 sagas took place a thousand years before the current story. Allegedly, they planned to have more flashback years, but the kids buying the toys found them too confusing.

confusing.




* ''{{Exalted}}'''s ''Dreams of the First Age'' supplement is set in the eponymous First Age, a high-{{Magitek}} civilization ruled by the immensely powerful, and increasingly power-mad and deranged, elders of the Solar Deliberative. The supplement kicks off at the very moment that the Unconquered Sun turns his face from his Chosen.
** Exalted used to be itself a prequel to OldWorldOfDarkness, with various types of Exalts being derived from WoD splats - Lunars are obviously werewolves, for instance.

* ''{{Rifts}} Chaos Earth'' is set during the Coming of the Rifts and the end of human dominion over the Earth. Ironically, due to the rarity of magic, the nonexistence of [[{{Magitek}} Techno-Wizardry]] and the fact that Chaos Earth hasn't been fighting a constant war for survival for centuries, the tech level is in many areas ''lower'' than that of the mainline Rifts Earth setting.
* The ''Arcane Age'' line of ForgottenRealms products explored the days when Netheril and Myth Drannor were at the height of their power.

* Creator/IsaacAsimov wrote the ''Galactic Empire'' novels, one of which was set within the First Galactic Empire prior to the collapse depicted in the {{Foundation}} trilogy, as a bridge between his ''Robot'' series and that trilogy. The first one, ''Pebble in the Sky'', takes place at the height of the Galactic Empire and is in a bit of an odd situation when it comes to which is a prequel and which is a sequel (it was actually Asimov's ''first'' novel, but large parts of ''Foundation'' had already been serialized). The two other ''Empire'' novels were set further back, with one taking place during the rise of the empire that will ''become'' the First Galactic Empire, and the other being set before Trantor became a galaxy-wide concern.

* TalesOfTheBranionRealm is largely this, since each book is set a century or more before the previous book. Book 3, in particular, sets up the familial conflicts in Book 2, as brothers and sisters in the former make way for third cousins in the latter. It also mentions, in passing, an event that will lead to the main conflict in Book 1.

* The ''Franchise/{{Bioshock}}'' novel ''Rapture'' mixes this with a slide into JustBeforeTheEnd. It basically links all the backstory we know about the first two games together into a single novel.
