Timeline

A Brief Note on Dates
The history of humanity, as detailed in the timeline, has been divided into a number of different time periods. Just as we currently use the abbreviations of BC (or BCE) and AD to differentiate between major eras in human development, the people of New Earth use their own form of abbreviations. Any date from the history of Earth, before the Exodus, is labeled as Earth Date (ED). This abbreviation replaces AD and BC/BCE (using negative years to indicate BC/BCE periods of time). All dates from the time of the Exodus are DE, or During Exodus. After the arrival on New Earth, time is marked as SE (For Second Empire) or PF (for Pre Fall, referring to the fall of the Second Empire of man). Finally, modern dates are known as AF, for After Fall. All AF dates have been left unlabeled, as the people of New Earth rarely use the abbreviation in common conversation.

Another important note is that many of the dates are approximate. Due to the Great Collapse of 4432, many official records were lost. Among those are the exact dates of many important events Prior to 4400. There are attempts being made to recollect the lost history, but they are slowed by the loss of pre-collapse technologies.

ABBREVIATIONS
ED= Earth Date All dates before the Migration
DE= During Exodus All dates between the departing of Terra and the discovery of New Earth
PF= Pre Fall All dates prior to the fall of the Second Empire of Man
AF= After Fall All dates after the fall of the Second Empire of Man up to the present. Any date with no abbreviation after it in this timeline is considered to be an AF date.
