The Nightmare of Sigil
Being introduced for the first time this campaign, the Ailorian calendar isn't that much different from our own outside of names. Dates are broken down by day and month, but years are numbered based on the era they belong in.
The Ailorian calendar was developed early in the world's history, by draconic astronomer, as such the naming conventions are based entirely on notable early draconic deities.
Named for the event that started each era, years are numbered starting with 0 as the initial event year.
Orogin – The first and longest era, a time of high and unrestrained magic. Races were still young and some had yet to see their beginnings. (x – ~6000 years Pre Fate Rift (PFR))
Fallur – The fall of magic, as the worldmagic source was restricted. Many races died out due to various means of conflict and struggle to survive, and the world changed drastically for the first time. (~6000 – ~3700 years PFR)
Risur – The rise of civilization, certain races grew dominant and pushed their cultures forward into a growing age of order and development. Magic is heavily relied upon but understood that it cannot be the sole drive any longer. (~3700 – 2976 years PFR)
Dominus – The fall of Bahamut plunged the world into the Dominus era, when the draconic god Tiamat took dominion over the heartland Neveria. Known for several series of events that slid much of the known world into mayhem, Dominus is often thought of as the dark ages, despite the large developments in societies around the world. (2976 years PFR - Fate Rift)
Destinis – Named after the culmination of the event known as the Fate Rift. Possibly the largest change to the world, as the foundations of fate were rewritten to avoid such a cataclysm again. The world would feel the ripples for many years to come this era. (Fate Rift – Present)
Named originally after twelve dragonic deities that stood for the seasons, which are universally understood to be roughly three months long each, and described as welcoming, deep, and waning depending on which month of the season it is.
