Suggestions for current era Name

Postby gotpurplefleas » Wed Apr 19, 2017 1:19 am

Hi all...o/,
We would like to help develop a clock that would run in-game time as a third party app that would help to enhance gameplay for all that use it. As a precursor to that we need to set a 0 hour/day/year at the appropriate time, and it occurred to me that we have no name for such a time and date.

It has been suggested to me that since we do not know actual dates and times during any previous time, that we begin at the time of game inception...or thereabout. Ascent has been developed to run on an 8 days : 1 day ratio, so time is easily figured from that date, which as nearly as I can tell so far, is May 1st, 2013. If anyone has a more accurate start date please let me know so that we may adjust.

With all that in mind, I hereby call on all to post your suggestions here, regarding what to name our current era (which as close as we can tell began 32 years ago...game time). We could also use names for the time between the gate destruction and the current era...as we will most likely make reference to it frequently. Last, we would like to name the era preceding that as well...going all the way back to the decay of Earth. It may not be mentioned a lot, but there may be historical references made in the future.

We will leave this post up for 5 days (real time) and on Monday the 24th of April 2017 we will collect all suggestions and start another thread to poll the playerbase for votes concerning the best name.

Thnx all for the help

I suggest:

- Before Collapse (BC) Defined as prehistory leading up tp the day the old government finally collapsed.
- Dark Era (DE) or The Stagnation (ie ...the 1056th year of the Stagnation) Defined by the time of war and destruction that followed the collapse.
- Second Age of Acsention (SA or SAA) Current era beginning the day true space travel again became a reality.
I plan on living forever ...so far so good!

BF = Before the Fall fr the era prior to the collapse of the Galactic Government.

HT = the Hard Times covering of the period of The Fall

ER = the new Era of Reclamation when we began to reclaim the stellar systems and recolonise them

Great idea, Fleas, and I like ALL the suggestions so far!

If I have to vote, I would be torn between Rhaven's and Moon's suggestions. Kcls and Grey, your's are great too,
just a bit more complicated for the new or casual player to grasp.

I was taught, whenever possible, to stick to the 'KISS' methodology..."Keep it simple, Stupid" :lol:

:mrgreen: Ditto on KISS (the philosophy), LH, though the rock band's colors take a little getting used to :)

I haven't come up with anything for the before fall and current times yet but I can't get the following name for the bad times when all we lost earth and communications with all the rest of the Galaxy. How about:

The Silence.

:mrgreen: Actually, a lot of that from players who only play (ex: Wulf) but have little to say. :)
