"Hmm...let's get ye patched up."

This manuscript about a thing contains retconned material, a great number of redlinks, or, more likely, 'tis just in shambles an' needs a bit o' work to pass muster, see. Fix it if 'tis worth savin', or torch the lot!

This page needs serious work but should be kept around to determine what is chaff and what is wheat.

The passage of time in Aianar and Terrosa is measured and calculated in days, fortnights, moonfolds, folds, and fourfolds.
An event of universal import often triggers a new epoch.



Main article: Anwronian Calendar

The style of date in Moonish nations and elsewhere (although somewhat outdated) is based on the Sleep of Anwron, called Folds of Anwron's Rest (abbreviated A.R., or simply called Anwronian Folds).
The current fold in Moonish lands is 5709 Anwronian.


Main article: Manticenean Calendar

In Manticenê, current and former Manticenean territories, and some other Manticene-influenced cultures, the standard dating system is based on the Days of the Republic. Folds before Republican Folds were the Kingsfolds (sometimes further divided into folds for every King and Queen that ruled and styled as Rombolos' Fold, etc.), Magisterial Folds (shortened to Magisterial), Folds of the White Mantle (again with the Mantle's name, such as Sygno's Fold), and Imperial Folds (shortened to Imperial).
Per the Manticenean Calendar, the current date is the 253rd Fold of the Republic.


Main article: Peridantean Calendar

The current date convention in the Commonlands is based around the defeat of their greatest foe, the First Empire: Age of the Empire (abbreviated A.E. or styled Peridantean) refers to folds that the Empire stood on Aianar since the first conquest in 3457 AR, and Fall of the Empire (abbreviated F.E. or Postperidantean) references its collapse in 3829 Anwronian, or 371 Peridantean.

The lands of the Kaiantoran Empire deny the First Empire truly died, claiming themselves to be its true realization. Because of this, they continue to refer to the current season as Peridantean, not Postperidantean.
The current fold in all Commonish lands outside Kaiantor is 1879 Postperidantean, while in Kaiantor the date is rendered 2250 Peridantean.

Sunrise Epoch

For the purposes of a cohesive timeline, the Commonish or Peridantean dating system will be used primarily, with regional notation below.

2569 Anteperidantean

888 Anwronian
Kingsfold 1

2334 Anteperidantean

  • ?/?: The first of the Peoples of the Moon arrive on the continent. This tribe are the Jantyzars, led by disgraced thief called Raexon the Jeweller. Naming himself telar, or high prince, he founds the petty Telaroin of Nembas Niin in present-day Brzanta. The local toad tribes are unenthusiastic, nor is their hideous god. Other tribes soon follow the Jantyzars' example.

2322 Anteperidantean

Despite the constant threat of the greenkin in the mountains, the Brzants, Isvants, and their allies are most successful, forming a trade alliance with the badgers of the north, the ancient Ascks.

2320 Anteperidantean

The following season, Raexon dies, leaving a hopeful petty kingdom behind him.

2309 Anteperidantean

Seeing the Ascks are great miners of the world, and are grown wealthy in gems and silver and gold from the deeps, Raexon's jealous grandson Maermo makes war against Asckon, and having maimed his former allies grievously, takes away all the treasures of Asckon to Nembas Niin.

2296 Anteperidantean

With his stolen goods, Maermo the Rich stakes the city of Caxê Maermo as his new capital, having taken 13 seasons to construct it, and seeing his wealth and opulence and power, the other petty rovanates submit to him as their telar. Brzanta is formed.
One petty prince who would not submit, Talas, takes his people on an exodus into the mountains, and is never seen again.

2287 Anteperidantean

In their hubris, the Brzanta think themselves masters of the world. Rejoicing in their victory and the last stone of Maermo's palace being laid, they do not expect the demons of the mountains to be awakened.
The city is burned and sacked by the demons and their armies. Brzanta is laid waste.

2221 Anteperidantean

After a fifty fourfolds and more spent clawing out an existence on Aianar, the Circlet sends a savior to the Brzants, a Star-crowned Prince to lead their greatest warriors against their tormentors, the lizards, serpents, and toads of Hirrhion who number in the tens of thousands.
The sacred God-Prince, leading his Order of the Circlet, begins his Weeping Crusade against the Evils of the Mountains.

2220 Anteperidantean

Hirrhion and his ilk are destroyed, vanquished and banished to the Sea forever. Without their god, the greenkin are dispersed with ease. The Princes of the Circlet and their peoples settle the conquered lands, forming Elä Arylie and Aldarin, Raparin, and Temerin. The sons of Talas are found to be alive and well on the other side of the mountains, in their rovanate of Talassar.

2217 Anteperidantean

1240 Anwronian
Kingsfold 352
  • ?/?: The various tribes of Moonish foxes are allied, and Great Arylia united, covering nearly the entire northern continent of Aianar, save for the bird and wild kingdoms in the north and the "strange lands" to the far south.

2199 Anwronian
Kingsfold 1411
  • ?/?: The Magisters, a clever array of magicians and thinkers, seize control of Manticenê, and put out the eyes of the King himself. Shrewdly, they simply pull back Manticean support and watch Rhos die.

Rhos destroyed by the Zussa, who have allied the desert clans and ousted the Rocs and their bird kingdom, but are unable to hold the newly subjugated territory, falling to the Sunnish and Wyndish who in exchange for their aid demand the fealties of the surviving Rhos princes.

  • 25/12: The Poruugans conquer the region known as the Grey, not yet its own Kingdom, nor a country of its own at all. They use it as a staging ground for their invasion of the Commonlands. The Kingdom of the Wyndish ceases to be.

  • 6/7: In the summer heat, the castle of Wilderwood finally falls to the Empire, and is utterly sacked and destroyed by the furious besiegers.

  • 30/7: The knight Benn of Wilderwood, the castellan of the selfsame fallen House Wildery stronghold, is crowned King-under-Tree, and though he has already been fighting a guerilla war for seasons officially declares vengeance for the murdered King Martin to the gathered banners.

41 Peridantean

3499 Anwronian

47 Peridantean

3505 Anwronian
  • ?/?: After the fall of Hasaeln, the Peridanteans ferried north and now finally subjugate Essowar with a Zantese alliance, unaware of the paramilitary growth in Lockelin, which pays them tribute.

  • ?/?: While the Peridanteans were focused on conquering Sartaszya, the rebellion in the south comes to a head. Within the folds, Crownswood and Riveril are freed.

3507 Anwronian

92 Peridantean

3550 Anwronian

3829 Anwronian
  • ?/?: Haunted by a series of failed wars, the Empire in the south slowly falls toward disarray. With Hasaeln's independence, the direct passage from the south to the north was cut off, damaging its solidarity. When the Merefolk and Locks invade, the citizenry of the Empire revolt, and the Emperor himself flees by ship to the northern empire in Kaiantor, where he reforms the Peridantean Empire into the Second Empire. The Kaiantorans to this day consider the Peridantean Empire to be the First Kaiantoran Empire.
