Atheran Timeline

From Paravia Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Atheran timeline is divided up into Eras and Ages, with each Era containing multiple Ages. The events of the story take place during the Era of Redemption, so references to the First Age, Second Age, and so forth in the Wiki entries are presumed to be in this Era, unless otherwise stated.

The number of the year starts at 1 in the beginning of an Age and increases on the Winter Solstice. Each Age does not necessarily have the same number of years.
