The Old Era (1 - 627, according to non-Olometists)

The Old Era was the time before the birth of Olom Tisma. This period is viewed by Olometists to be a time of barbarism, savagery, and a time when nothing of consequence took place. It is for this reason the years are not counted during this time by the faithful, which also leaves the length of this period in question. Though the unbelievers are said to count these years, but it is in question how accurate their count may be.

Time of Olom Tisma (627 - 659, according to non-Olometists)

The Time of Olom Tisma covers the period of Olom Tisma's life from his birth till his death. As this time borders on the Old Era the count of years is uncertain beyond Olom Tisma's age, which tends to be referenced only when it is important to the story being told. All that matters to the faithful is that he lived during this time and the contributions made during his lifetime are covered in the telling of his deeds in the holy text of the faith.

Reign of Night (659 - 659, according to non-Olometists)

The Reign of Night was the time following the death of Olom Tisma when Dieu Soleil departed from the world, abandoning it to be consumed by cold and darkness. It is unknown how long this period lasted; it is even accepted by most that time itself stopped during this period. The Reign of Night ended when Dieu Soleil returned as a yellow sun instead of a bleeding red one, with a second smaller sun which is believed to be the soul of Olom Tisma positioned above it. This period is said to provide a glimpse and warning of what will happen when the End of the World comes.

The end of this period also marks the start of the New Era as recorded by the faithful with the year 1 NE.

New Era (659 - 1894, according to non-Olometists)

1 NE: It is believed that Alberto "The First King" Ferreiro encouraged people to remember Olom Tisma's teachings and kneel before Dieu Soleil. In this way he united people in the territory that is currently the Aquera Kingdom under the title of Paladin of Olom Tisma and he was crowned by the Council of Dieu Soleil (The Council consisted of the seven remaining apprentices of Olom Tisma) as the King of the Aquera Kingdom.

1-22 NE: Ferreiro's Conquests. Once he was acknowledged by the Council of Dieu Soleil (They were considered as the representatives of Dieu Soleil on Earth), Alberto Ferreiro announced The March of the Light. He gathered an army of believers and men of his Kingdom to start a Holy War. This way he expanded Aquera's territory to Abismo Lake, stealing the tribal lands of the heretics, and either murdering or forcing them to convert.

20-22 NE: Tribes, led by their most famous and talented leaders - Rupert Larouss, Delmore Roussel, and Francille Roatta, united their people to resist the cruelties of the Olometist army.

22 NE: Battle of Solstice. Aquera's army meets the united powers of Rupert Larouss, Delmore Roussel, and Francille Roatta in the fields by Abismo Lake. The heretics suffer a heavy defeat: Delmore Roussel betrays his companions and retreats with his people in the middle of the fight, Francille Roatta is kidnapped and her people are scattered, Rupert Larouss tries to resist, but in the end is forced to retreat.

25 NE: Francille Roatta accepts Olometism and marries Cristoval Ferreiro, second son of The First King. They take part of Aquera's army and march back to Francille's lands. Her people bow to their former leader and accept the new faith.

27 NE: Francille Ferreiro nee Roatta signs a peace treaty with Rupert Larouss. They unite their powers to take revenge on Delmore Roussel's betrayal.

28 NE: Battle of Crows. The united powers of Francille and Rupert attack Delmore Roussel's lands. Delmore Roussel is murdered, his nine year old boy, Dash Roussel, is taken by Rupert Larouss as a hostage.

30 NE: Cristoval Ferreiro dies under mysterious circumstances. Francille Ferreiro nee Roatta marries Rupert Larouss and they establish a tribal confederation of Larouss, Roatta, and Roussel people.

44 NE: Francille Larouss nee Roatta dies under mysterious circumstances. It is believed that Delmore Roussel's son grew close to Rupert Larouss, seeing the man as his father. The boy swears his allegiance to Rupert Larouss, the Roatta people are left without a leader, and Rupert Larouss declares himself king. He approaches the new leader of the Aquera Kingdom, through whom he is introduced to the Council of Dieu Soleil. Rupert Larouss accepts the True Faith and is acknowledged as King of Chantour, a new Kingdom.

51 NE: Nathalie Larouss, believing that it was Rupert Larouss who murdered her mother, and poisons her father. She takes her mother's surname and announces herself as Queen Nathalie Roatta of Chantour. She starts a persecution of Olometists and tries to bring the Old Faith back to the Kingdom of Chantour.

53 NE: Aquera sends troops to overthrow the new Queen and supports Dash Roussel, former page and squire of Rupert Larouss, as a possible new King.

53-59 NE: The Six Years War. Queen Nathalie Roatta of Chantour successfully resists Aquera's attacks, especially after the Gallois and Leclair people join her to reach the same goal - destroy the Olometists.

57 NE: The Red Night. The night during which hundreds of Olometists, (men, women and children) were murdered in their sleep in the Chantour Kingdom.

64 NE: Queen Nathalie Roatta of Chantour dies from consumption, having not given birth to any children. A distant relative of Rupert Larouss, known as Richard Larouss, stands as the most legitimate choice to take the throne. He swears loyalty to Dieu Soleil and is accepted as the new King.

64-82 NE: A time of changes in the Chantour Kingdom. Richard 'The Pious' Larouss becomes infamous for his distrust of women. He believes most women are servants of Luxure, so he doesn't see them as suitable in positions of importance. He changes the laws, according to which only the first born male can become heir to Chantour's throne. Such a decision is accepted by the Council of Dieu Soleil, because this type of inheritance is already practiced in the Aquera Kingdom - which is patriarchal. He was also a talented politician and annexed the lands of Gallois and Leclair into his Kingdom, forcing or convincing their leaders and people to convert.

71-85 NE: Gemelli Wars. It is said that during this time the southern tribes took part in many skirmishes for territories and power. These tribes were lead by rival twin brothers. When one died, the other established the Kingdom of San Severo. They have a different faith and their King was not acknowledged by the Council of Dieu Soleil.

90-95 NE: The War of Liberation (Known as The First Chantour Oppression to San Severo and Loutraki). After recovering from the Gemelli Wars, Chantour saw the creation of the Kingdom of San Severo as an affront to both the faith and their own national ego. After all lands along their border were lost to heretics, this was an affront to their views that those lands belonged to Chantour and the faith. In truth this was a war of conquest to reclaim what was perceived to be lost, which would see the northern half of what is now Loutraki and San Severo lands along the borders to the northwestern half of the Germelli Lakes region conquered. Chantour ended the war here as it was believed enough territory had been claimed that San Severo was no longer large enough to be considered a kingdom, unaware of just how much territory lay beyond the Gemelli Lakes. In truth these lands were claimed with relative ease as the Kingdom of San Severo was busy conquering the lands to the southeast of the Gemelli Lakes.

93 NE: King Richard Larouss dies in battle during the War of Liberation. His eldest son, Remy Larouss was only sixteen, so King Richard Larouss' Constable is appointed as regent until the boy came of age. Ranier Roussel does a superb job of not only running the Kingdom of Chantour, but also leading the army for the rest of the War of Liberation.

97-100 NE: The San Severo Uprising (Known to San Severo as The War of Retribution). Having solidified control of all of the lands southeast of the Gemelli Lakes, aside from the two peninsulas, the San Severo rebuilt their forces and sought to reclaim the lands they lost during the "War of Liberation". This effort was largely successful as all of the lands not part of modern Loutraki had been reclaimed. Chantour was only able to put up minimal resistance due to a combination of still being in the process of rebuilding their own forces and trying to force the population of what is now northern Loutraki into adopting Olometism.

98 NE: The son of King Richard Larouss comes of age and seeks to claim the throne. The skillful leadership of Ranier Roussel during the War of Liberation, and a new uprising that started a year prior, combined with his experience in war and his ability to rule a nation led to the people asking for Ranier to be king. When the Council of Dieu Soleil also lent their support for Ranier to be king, it wasn't long before Ranier Roussel was elevated from Regent to King, leaving Remy Larouss to lose his claim.
