Wars of the Threshold
Timeline of Major Events
Note: This timeline uses the major dating system of creation- RY (Realm Year). This calendar is based on the system used by the Realm with year 0 being the coronation of the Scarlet Empress. There are several other dating systems in use, especially in the Scavenger lands and among various barbarian tribes, but RY is the most universal.
The Calendar: Creation has five seasons each corresponding to the five elements of creation. Air, Earth, Fire, Water, Wood. Air is typically the coldest season, while Fire is the hottest. Each season lasts for three months (Ascending Air, Resplendent Air, Descending Air) with each month lasting exactly 28 days. Creation thus has a 420 day year, and a 5 day feast that separates year from year.
