Rebellions rising against the Empire, Joseph faking his own death, metal-eating squids, dead terrorists coming back from the grave, the universe's anus shitting out green calamari, and now Vespid takes the next step in fucking political suicide! It's the 986th Year of the Post-Reformation Epoch, and Namine's gone fucking mad!

The Reformation Epoch Calendar is a calendar created and used by the Keilicaela Empire.

History

The Reformation Epoch Calendar was enacted by the Keilicaela Empire as its official calendar upon the Empire's birth in 0 PRE. The name does not, as some uninformed outside observers believe, refer to the reformation of the First Empire into the Second; rather, it refers to the reformation of Keilicaela society and culture as a whole. Under the yoke of the Currai Imperium, Keilicaela culture was largely wiped out (markedly with the decline of the Cult of Namine); Keilicaela society became subservient to the Imperium. Thus, Keilicaela culture and society as it once existed was destroyed and would have to be "reformed" to become whole again; Namine, under the rule of the Imperium, existed in a time before this reformation would take place. As such, the years of the Occupation of Namine are called "Before the Reformation Epoch (BRE)."

After the Imperium was cast from Namine, there would be no other intervening species to lord over and control the Keilicaela, leaving them to their own devices on their homeplanet. This era of uninterrupted Keilicaela interaction is called the "Reformation Epoch (RE)" by the calendar, and is the aformentioned "reformation." Through years of war, politics, trading, strife, and other such dealings with one another, Keilicaela society and culture would be reformed under the direct influence of no species but the Keilicaela.

The Reformation Epoch would come to a close 573 years after it started. All following years are referred to as "Post-Reformation Epoch (PRE)." With the end of the reformation came the Keilicaela Empire. With the Reformation Epoch Calendar being the Empire's official calendar, it is only logical that the Empire would mark the end of the reformation as their beginning; the Empire regards itself as the culmination of the blood shed during the reformation. This new society and culture that was to be formed after the Imperium destroyed the old was the Keilicaela Empire.

Despite the disbandment of the First Empire, the colonies left behind largely continued to use the Reformation Epoch Calendar, keeping it relevant to post-Corruption Keilicaela societies. By the time the Second Empire came to power, the year was 980 PRE. Seeing no reason to change the calendar or otherwise break tradition (largely due to the Second Empire being comprised of mostly the same core components as the first), the Reformation Epoch Calendar was quickly upheld by the Second Empire and continues to persist to this day.

Timeline

The timeline of the Reformation Epoch Calendar, divided by the Epochs, is as follows:

Before the Reformation Epoch

  • 1500 BRE: Thutria, the first Keilicaela city-state, is founded
  • 1240 BRE: City-states emerge to compete with Thutria, becoming the most prevalent form of civilization on Namine
