Good news for all you calendar fans out there: I updated the timeline on the Leif & Thorn wiki with actual years! Did a lot of reading about real-world epochs, finally settled on how both Ceannis and Sønheim would determine their “year 0.”
And just in time for all this new pre-canon backstory to be unveiled, too…
Kale: This is where I should get out my notes, to make sure I don’t leave out anything. — um, to be clear, none of this is supposed to be an excuse! But my therapist swears that it’s “relevant context.”
A thing we didn’t have much of in Montmere was “any medical products not made by Northwind.” I don’t just mean other prismaceutical brands . . . I mean, people would laugh at you for using any treatment that wasn’t a med crystal.
Herbs, pills, liquids, vaccines, healing from medical mages . . . People said, with total confidence, that it was all worthless. The rest of Ceannis was just being scammed.
And, well — my sister got really sick from using pills. So, based on that vast and diverse sample group, it all seemed to add up.
