This page is a comprehensive timeline of the Core Federation and Pre-CorFed history. Detailed history records can be found here.
Important Notes[edit | edit source]
Every set of one billion years is called an "Age"; according to Ravenrii History, it is curently the Fifth Age, with only five years remaining until the next Age. Dates are usually recorded with an "M" after a six-digit-maximum written number, to signify a million years, and the two initials of the current Age after that. For example, the year 330.1M, F.A. translates as the year 330,100,000 of the First Age, or simply 1,330,100,000. Ages are commonly awarded names depending on the most important aspects or happenings of the Age: for example, the Second Age is called "The Age of Revolutions" because it was a churning, revolutionary period of time.
