I coulda posted the timeline
its 29 pages in 11 point times font. IT also contains the single reference that has given me so much headaches: "75,140 BM: Civil war ends with defeat of United Human fleet at ge-yiu, Henai Commander her-ie uses a curse magic to remove the biological immortality of “Humans”."the decision to change Henai and Humans from different species to the same is forcing me to go through this entire document now.
Oh yah; the First eight pages of that timeline consist of the 120k BM - 1 BM time period, the next twenty deal with a 400 year period. Shows which side i was more interested in, ey? And yet have the most recent backwork is on a species that by the timeperiod anythingt would be set in are functionally extinct.
You're on your way to being a Real HistorianTM then!
If you're basing your (working) calendar around the time of a specific character, it does make sense that you would put more detail into that.
True; that one character i base it on is very important though, enough i would have him come back twice (the first time being a major plot point in the 5th and final project) Had i picked one of the other calenders id be using dates either a thousand off, 120k off or changing every time a new clan took the kingship in the serianti.
You could do 'ages', like Tolkein did. Who is this guy anyway?
Sounds like you have a lot. All I have is ideas... I wish thought interpreters existed. :(
