Forums: Index > Lore Discussion > Date Structure

Hello all, this may be simple to some, but I can't seem to figure it out. How is the date structured in this Dragon Age series? I know the dates are structured like: 9:30 DRAGON...but what does that mean? What is the 9, a century, a millennia? what is the 30? a year, months? How do they choose what word is at the end? (I do, however, realize that the whole series will exist in the era where these numbers end in "DRAGON"...but that's about it...) I keep trying to look it up, but all I get is a list of dates or wars or other storyline things that have happened within Dragon Age.

Please help, I'm so confused.

It's all perfectly (I think) explained here, with subsequent links. Smiley -- UserCCCSig -- You talkin' to me? -- cCContributions -- 11:24, November 28, 2017 (UTC)

In the 9:30 Dragon Example, 9 is an age (century), 30 is a year of that age, and Dragon is the name of the age. There are 9 named ages, before that everything is called "Ancient", which is sort of like BC, in that that time period came before the establishment of the current calendar.
