    Adding to the topics a better defined look at the current age of Myrium. We need to better record our timelines going forward. I've attempted to explain the moon in the sky and months / moon phases so time can be described in the world library but that wasn't enough. Below I'm adding into the timeline things that happened in each year the system has been online. This is just a rough draft and more can/will be added as chapters give their input. Overall, these must be brief but the system can link to each age in the World Library as that comes online.

    Current Age

    The first year of the current age:
    The World Library becomes more known. It is a collection of all the history of Myrium sent throughout all the beings within Myrium. Settlements of beings are instructed to copy the world history scrolls as they come along. The world library is thought to be a network of ancient places where historians guard and copy the documents for all to learn.

    The second year of the current age: Peace and rebuilding begin to strengthen much of Myrium. The Undead begin their uprising and their power is thought to come from something like the Netherworld called the Underverse. Rifts between these places appear to connect the living and the dead. Great armies of Undead begin to take root in places like Norhaven.

    The third year of the current age: Great leaders of Orcs, Draken and Humans begin to rally being to their cause.

    The fourth year of the current age: Exploration of many lands expand the maps of Myrium.

    The fifth year of the current age: The living learn how to close the rifts between the Underverse and the living plane dealing a massive setback to the Undead. Many new settlements begin to document their existence and new trade routes begin to form.

    The sixth year of the current age: A breakdown of some networks begins, the light of Myrium wanes as some settlements seem to disappear along with news from the beings that inhabit them.

    The seventh year of the current age: A resurgence of old trade routes begins to take hold. New leaderships begin to develop and the strength of Myrium once more beings to flourish.

    Out of character – each additional year of the new age is represented by the actual year that the system has been around. 2010 was our first year and thus it was the first year of the current age. 2017 is the seventh year of the current age and so on.

    I love world building, and I think games or really any sort of story telling experience are more immersive when they have solid lore woven into them. Having a solid sense of history is not only a great resource for story building and a foundation for stories moving forward, but it also honors the players who have contributed to the storylines through play.

    When I first saw mention of the World Library, what I originally envisioned was an institution like the Library of Alexandria. But now I see the World Library isn't so much a place as it is an organization. It's something that tries to preserve knowledge, and as such it fills a niche similar to the Church after the fall of the Roman Empire, or the Foundation from the Isaac Asimov series.

    In a fantasy setting, some interesting avenues are opened up as well. Perhaps the "true" World Library is akin to the concept of the Akashic Library. In a setting where ESP and psionics exist, that's not a far-fetched concept. Imagine a group of archaeologists and historians who also have access to the psychic ability of psychometry.
