The Four Eras

Mendalian history is currently divided into four eras, PT, PM, TS, and TA. Eras are wholly decided by the epouranal mages. Only they can determine when one era ends and a new one begins, and they explicitly name the eras.    

PT – Priori Tempus: Before Time

This is the unspecified amount of time before the epouranal mages came into existence and started marking the eras. Because the PT era is not adequately documented, its years run backwards, so that 1 PM is the last year of the era. Recorded Mendalian history only goes back to the beginning of the PM era, when epouranals first came into existence. Everything in the PT era is considered ancient history and there are many discrepancies. However, the centuries leading up the PM era were considered a time of great despair and war where the people felt they were abandoned by the heavens and had no hope for a prosperous world.  

PM – Priori Mandamus; Before He Commands

This refers to the 4040 years between the rise of the epouranal mages and when mandamus came into existence. The era was marked by the formal introduction of mentus into world and a general stabilization of peoples and nations after ages of unrest and constant war. The epouranals brought prophecy and guidance from the heavens that helped people grow and thrive. The era was always known as the PM era even though no one knew what “mandamus” meant. At the time, the era’s name was believed to refer to a great revelation or commandment from God that would at some point be brought down to the world. In a way, this was right.   Major Events:  

TS – Terrius Sunn; In the Years of the Sun

“In the Years of the Sun” refers to the years when the Daughters of the Sun were on Mendala. This is the 3970 years after mandamus, the Fantasma, and the Daughter of the Sun were established and before Book of War was opened. Widely considered to be a time of great prosperity and discovery. Wars slowly became less prevalent over the centuries and opportunities became more abundant.   Major Events:  

TA – Terrius Argonon; In the Years of War

This refers to the 1290 years after the Book of War was first opened. It is marked by a resurgence of slavery, poverty, and a general despair across the lands, along with a severe rise in wars and conflict, even among long established domains.   Most likely the return of the Daughter of the Sun will mark the beginning of a new era but only time will tell.
