Timeline & Location Field
Posted on Sat Oct 28th, 2017 @ 11:23pm by Mikhael Stormdanovich
This is primarily concerned with how we write dates in our Timeline & Location field.
Starting with our next chronicle, let's start referring to dates - when we have to specify them - in the following manner:
7th Day of the 1st Month, Year 3551 (January 7). This neatly translates to abbreviating it to 07.01.3551!
For our usual way of writing the timeline (i.e. as vague as possible): Mid-12th Month.
This just gives us a slightly more fantasy feel without having to resort to a massive and rather cumbersome made-up calendar.
See Below for Aereth date information. No, it's not 100% accurate from a scientific standpoint.
