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 Empire of Namine.


The Reformation Epoch Calendar was enacted by the Empire of Namine as its official calendar upon the Empire's final conquest of Namine in 573 RE. 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 civilization and culture on Namine as a whole. Although the Keilicaela were once unilaterally united under the Helminth, this knowledge is relegated to the upper echelons of the Imperial Synod. As such, the reformation referred to by the calendar is based on a well-recorded fact in public Imperial history: civilization existed on Namine before the Keilicaela. It is said that the Aen-Keilicaela who first founded Verikron learned from and synthesized the teachings of Namine's original civilization. Thus, the resulting Empire that sprung up around Verikron sought to see Namine return to the guiding principles of this lost people, and with the declaration of the Inevitable Edict, the Empire began its struggle to bring all the Keilicaela of Namine to heel in the 573 years that would come to be referred to as the "Reformation Epoch (RE)." The times before the formation of the First Empire are called "Before the Reformation Epoch (BRE)."

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 Imperial hegemony of Namine. 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 victory; the Empire regards itself as the culmination of both the teachings and lessons from a lost civilization and the blood shed during the reformation.

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.


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

Before the Reformation Epoch

  • 96000 BRE: The Helminth burrows into Namine and begins feeding on portions of the planet's mantle
  • 94000 BRE: Civilization emerges on Namine's surface
  • 89100 BRE: Extant civilization takes note of the Helminth and devises a strategy to rid it from Namine; the Helminth constructs Keilicaela hordes to defend itself
  • 89000 BRE: After 100 years of strife, the Keilicaela succeed in devouring all civilization on Namine; some survivors flee the planet via spacecraft and are not heard from again; soon thereafter, the Singularities take notice of the Helminth and induce its slumber; eons-long uninterrupted Keilicaela evolution and interaction begins
  • 5000 BRE: The Keilicaela attain sapience
  • Sometime after 5000 BRE: The Cult of Namine emerges, rising to prominence amongst the entire Keilicaela species
  • 4000 BRE: The first Keilcaela city-state, Verikron, emerges
  • 3950 BRE: City-states emerge to compete with Verikron, sparking thousands of years of war as sovereign city-states become the dominant form of civilization on Namine
  • 1240 BRE: The Currai Imperium conquers the Crysek species
  • 1148 BRE: The Enlightened Ones expunge the Imperium from the Crysek homeworld, freeing the species; the Crysek plunge into perpetual war for hundreds of years, eventually organizing into the Holy Conglomerate of Litiket
  • 1139 BRE: The Oshdur create the Helminth via mass Veil manipulation, which promptly returns to the Veil of Webs from whence it came and swims backwards in time to before the year 96,000 BRE, where it goes on to find Namine, burrow into it, and eventually create the Keilicaela
  • 648 BRE: The Enlightened Ones successfully overturn the Currai Imperium, ridding the Milky Way Galaxy of their reign
  • 460 BRE: The Cult of Namine loses influence as few Keilicaela tribes are left untouched by city-states
  • 0 BRE: The city-states of Thutria, Thyste, and Skopida are conquered by Verikron, forming the Empire of Namine and putting an end to the time before the Reformation Epoch
