A History of the Cosmos
There are four main periods in history used to track dates:
- PC — Pre-Council Era — All of history before the founding of the Grand Council of Tetrax
- CE — Council Era — The “golden age” when the 16 council species had vast empires united by the Council
- AC — Age of Chaos — The chaotic period between the dissolution of the council and the establishment of the modern interstellar governments.
- NE — New Era — The modern era of relative stability, beginning about 8000 years after the fall of the Council.
