Timeline meaning [not a bug]


Messier-31

Question

This is not a bug, just didn't know where to put it.

 

I will explain this issue using the text from a in-game book called "The Moons of Eora": "315 years ago, the Grand Empire of Vailia suffered from terrible storms and terrifyingly high and low tides."

According to the eoran timeline (http://pillarsofeternity.gamepedia.com/Timeline) Old Vailia suffered from a Lover's Tide in 2508 AI.

 

2508 + 315 = 2823

 

2823 AI is the year when the game starts. What doest that mean? It either means that the book was written (no printing press in Eora) in the exact same year as the game starts and its author had little respectability to anyone reading it in future years OR it means that a certain game developer did that by mistake.

 

It would make more sense if this book book had a sentence looking like this: "In the Year of Iroccio 2508, the Grand Empire of Vailia suffered from terrible storms and terrifyingly high and low tides." so anyone reading this book in future eoran years wouldn't had a headache trying to calculate when did that really hapenned.

 

 

PS. The book text also reads: "315 years ago, the Grand Empire of Vailia suffered from terrible storms and terrifyingly high and low tides. Records show the same thing was happening in the Aedyr Empire and that several new Aedyran colonies along the Dyrwood coast were completely destroyed by storms and high tides that engulfed the settlements."

 

The Eastern Reach was discovered in 2602, almost 100 years later, ffs!

 

There are some other cases of such time slights in this game. Am I being too cavil? Oh, bother.

It would be of small avail to talk of magic in the air...
