The History of Habololy is measured in years, decades, centuries, and
occasionally, millennia. This is true of all the nations, races, and
cultures of the world. Although some use a different system of dating, all
use the same standards of time. Some events in the history of Habololy are
fact beyond a reasonable doubt and agreed upon by all. Other events are
There are two chronicles of Habololian history that are considered to be the
most accurate and are also the two that are most commonly used. The first
is the older of the two. It is kept by the clerics of Everentual, The
Oldest Orc, and Celetal. Although every nation and culture keeps records,
the history presented by these clerics has long been the standard. It uses
the Habastlian system of years. This system of dating measures years from
the time when the Counsil placed a ban on the creation of new lands on
Habololy and on many magical creations. In the Habastlian system, BC stands
for Before the Creation Ban; while AC stands for After the Creation Ban.
was not until 243 AC that another chronicle of the history of Habololy came
into being. The College of Icefia, headed by the then mortal dean, Allanda
Melodi, set about the task of laying down a new and more accurate history.
With a group of devoted relic hunters and loremasters, the college took
twenty-five years to assemble the information and write down a revised
history. The dean even instituted the Asticlean system of dating to better
record the history. This system of dating measures years before and after
the appearance of the moon.
Although unhappy that another accurate, all-encompassing history was now
being used by some nations, the writers of the Habastlian chronicle could do
little to stop the spread of the history laid out by the College of Icefia,
as it was backed by the Kingdom of Icefia, the most powerful nation at the
time. The new chronicle was accepted by some, rejected by some, and
integrated by some. To the present day, the peoples of Habololy are split
over which one of the chronicles is accurate.
