PostSubject: Timeline   Fri Jan 30, 2015 7:57 pm

I wanted to put this here, so that once we get things thought out...we can begin setting a sequence of the events that have led to this point where everything converges and the Outsiders actually come to Adonia. I have no idea how we will begin this but I think it is something we could use so we have some sense of time in this world. Sooooo....yar.

Right I should probably get around to writing the key events I had in mind for Adonia's history down and putting them in order here...

General question tho, how should we handle the years? :v

I mean like do we use the years 2000-whatever for the timeline, set it in our current year, make up a random year, etc?

Basically if a time-traveller came up to a character and asked what year it was, what would their answer be, is what I'm trying to say. :v

I vote we keep it simple and just use our current year. Though things could get a little weird if by chance we're referring to things that happened hundreds of thousands of years ago and we've supposedly only counted to 2015 years...maybe just call that a different era or something?

Why not have the arc's conclusion as "year zero" for whatever reason they decide to measure it?

Eh, I think it'd be kinda weird to just start at year zero, especially in a place with an established lore and backstory. Naturally there'd be important events in history that would be recorded (and potentially referred to).

It could just be year zero in the drachurstian calendar, though. After all, who's to say the entire world has a unified calendar?

So then would everything before be BC (or whatever the equivalent would be)? :0

Well wouldn't it get confusing if it didn't? I don't wanna have to refer to different calenders in different regions.

Also for the BC thing, I'd suggest simply calling that the previous era. If we number it, we could call it the first era. Or another number depending on what era we start in. For all I know at this stage, we could be in the fourth era.

How about just have our starting point as the big bang as originally intended. The point where the Outsiders comes in can be the first point on the time line...we can add things before it for history...and we can add events after as they happen.

Well that would be the starting point obviously, but why would we call it year zero? Obviously the world existed before the outsiders came in.

What I am saying is we start from there and instead of saying it is year zero...it's just "x amount of years since the outsiders came" or " x amount of time since the big bang". Then you can have dates the resemble 1 a.b.b, or 1 after big bang.

Well, why would the natives refer to the big bang at all? Wouldn't only the outsiders be aware of it?

They have gates too, you know. They just apparently didn't use them as much, and now can't.

Ah, fair point.

Still, not sure I like calling it 1 a.b.b. Would rather just call it 1 and everything before could be referred to as b.b.b (Before Big Bang).

Just my personal preference.

Even then though, I'm not sure about starting at year one in any form.

Well I spose I can live with that for now, though it's a bit of an odd timeline system to make it "100 years before the Big Bang" or whatever... Ah well. :0

Slightly related - Travel times and things of that nature or plain 'where time would have been skipped'.
Since as far as I know we're trying to keep to a common time schedule (unless it's startofseason - endofseason, which is what Tod suggested I believe), how will that work? I mean - I don't expect that people will actually write out traveling, but how will the time vacuums be handled? Will they be ignored, noted, etc.?

I think we can maybe put a travel time note in there along with the link to the topics being moved to? Since as I mentioned before, linking to destinations and stuff should really be started for ease of backlogging... Reading things over as the story they are

Page is probably the best we can do most of the time, since you can't see post number.

What I meant about seasons is that it's hard to tell what occurs at the same time if we do traveling timeskips, so we should make everything tie together at once at the beginning/end of each season. It didn't really make sense, so I removed the comment.

If you really think about it, in the end, it may just be easier to do the current year and date. Sure it is unoriginal, but the concept of time is something that has been tweaked and changed over the course of thousands of years by all of mankind, and it is still imperfect. To completely recreate a new measurement of time, and new time line, might be too much work for this. I am all for putting the hours in but, after giving it some thought, it might be OVER working it. I say we pull an Elder Scrolls. We keep our years and time, but simple post new names over things like...months, days of the week, seasons etc. and so on. It would also give a good time frame of how long Adonia as a world, has been in this perceivable state, where the current dominant races "begin history". In short, "written records" only go back over the last 2000 years or so...and the rest is just hearsay. That gives a workable time frame for current events to date back..empires established and torn down. Royal lines created and living out to this time, etc. and so on. Our interactions after, or along side Smash's plot (however it works it) would be after the occurrence of the Big Bang. It was also my understanding that since these people are arriving on said Big Bang, it would be perceived by the Adonian's as well, if only in a small way...something to make that event noticeable to them, and there for draw attention to these new outsiders. They would KNOW they are outsiders, and thus, interactions between the natives of the land and those who came from another place would spawn as they come in contact whether that be good or bad. Both sides no doubt wary of the other. That sort of thing. This is something that affected the entire multiverse, and this place alone was not affected. I imagine they at least noticed.
