Imperial calendar

A convenience of time

A unified chart of days and moons phases. Developped in the first decades after the Demons' Sending. It was spread by the Demon Empire during their Conquest and the trading with other countries. Some view Orbidian similarities with the Old World, such as the numbers of days or the seasonal cycles, as a gift from the Senders, a reminder of the previous home of their ancestors.

    The First Demon Lord
    Life, Supernatural

    Decades after the first Archdemons evolved from their Hellion forms, another step in the Demon's metamorphic nature became known.

    A great hero and warrior of the Alliance turned sick after days repelling a large horde of monsters and bathing in their mana-saturated blood. A cocoon formed over him, and the first Demon Lord was born three nights later. Stronger, larger, and endowed with superior control over magical forces. No other being, even among the monsters, seemed to be a match for this new creation of Orbido's fantasy.

    The day of his birth became a symbol of Demon supremacy, of destiny fulfilled.

Demon Empire

281 AS and beyond

When enough Demon Lords appeared, they encouraged more aggressive actions to leave the harsh Verdant Steppes behind and conquer the more prosperous lands to the West. The Eastern Realms for example, were populated by the weaker Humans and had better soils for agriculture. A Lord-Emperor took command and reshaped the Demons's Republic into a militarized Empire seeking to gather its forces until the time comes.

    Evisceration of Sang-Fond

    A controversial and hellish purge of the lower quarters of Sang-Fond during the occupation by Imperial forces on the onset of the Eternal Conquest. After a well-coordinated evacuation of the districts with emphasis on checking for infiltrated troops trying to escape the purge, Demon Lord Ar Amon personally helped reduce the neighbourhood to a smouldering crater.   The Evisceration's events were recorded, a mixture of truth and ficton exacerbated the horrors of the events, accusing the Demons of massacring innocents left and right, including children which reinforced the terrible rumors about the Demon Lord himself. The events served as propaganda and a rallying for a global Human uprising and the eventual Apogee a few years later.
