An era is a unit of historical periods which usually spans over a couple of thousands of years, in which the Edia timeline is counted.
New era Edit
Deciding upon a new era is not an easy task. Some nations or areas may not believe it is useful to start a new era because the event that is deemed significant by other nations did not really affect them. Usually, starting a new era happens retroactively through negotations in which leaders of different states partake.
Before the Eras Edit
Before the Eras is the common name for events that took place before the first known era. Unlike the named eras, this period counts down from the starting point of the first era, years with a higher number being more distant in the past.
