Etherian Age (abbreviated as EA) and Before Etherian Age (abbreviated as BEA) are designations used to label or number years on Etheria. This calendar era is based on the traditionally reckoned year of a solar eclipse of both Etheria's moons, with EA counting years after the start of this epoch, and BEA denoting years before the start of the epoch. Unlike the AD/BC or CE/BCE system, there is a year zero in this scheme (the year of the double eclipse), so the year 1 EA immediately follows the year 0 EA which follows year 1 BEA.
NOTE: I added this page because of a growing consensus for the name and the year dating system on the thread. If you have any further suggestions or objections, please make them in the thread.
