Setting Events

I’m amazed at how much of what the story is has come from just a question of setting: when does it take place? That makes me ask, “how do they measure time?” Well, there must be some kind of important event from which they measure time. That spawned the Dawn of Order. And from that we get Soledon, the Bakásbole, the Protectorate, the Primarqim and so on.
