This article describes the timeline of Planet Tal, mainly history which is organized around the Rain-Calendar.
Rain-Calendar (レイン歴, also called RC for short) is the calendar which is established based on years after the birth of Rain Silves. Due to this, years B.C.E. in Tal are considered to be before her birth.
|Prior to 1,000 B.C.E.||Chief Events: Ancestors of Southern Sergals originated by Northern Sergals migrators.
|Approx. ~120 B.C.E.||Chief Events: Ancestors of Eastern Sergals originated, Founded the origin of Reono.
|~Several Hundred Years B.C.E.||Chief Events: Encounter of Southern Sergals and Agudners, Founding the origin of Gold Ring, Determination of the official race name of Agudners and Sergals.
During their beginning of an association, Agurs determined their race name to be Agudners, and Sieg determined their race name to be Sergals. These names were firmly determined as the official race name of them as Gold Ring language will be used as the official language of planet Tal.
|First Year of Rain-Calendar||Chief Events: Birth of Rain Silves.
|Approx. 12 Rain-Calendar||Rain, who had previously left her hometown and disappeared into the forest, had returned. She rose as a powerful leader, uniting all the villages within Tatla. Afterward, she had embarked on a journey to aid even poorer Northern people, together with her Talyxian Wolf called Zyn.|
|Approx. 16 Rain-Calendar||As Rain continued her journeys across the Northern regions, aiding the poor and guiding them through her leadership, the Shigu lands had already developed and become a small country with specific ambitions above the simplistic, primitive villages of old.|
|Approx. 18 Rain-Calendar||Soon enough, Rain would become known as "General Rain, the Savior", she would govern the Shigu which was well on it's way to becoming a Kingdom onto itself. Her fort had been built on the banks of the river, Lon Sodd, which would later become her castle. Her Kingdom had begun to develop around and from it as a starting point. Rain would then continue to aid poor villages without faltering, bolstered by the security built so far.|
|Approx. 20 Rain-Calendar||Under Rain's forces, the whole Northern region is unified. At that time, Zyn suddenly had left from Rain's side. Then, Shigu's directional reign would begin to face gradual changes from this as a turning point.|
|Approx. 23 Rain-Calendar||Shigu had gradually begun to act to take Reono lands under their control.
|Just Before 26 Rain-Calendar||The largest traditional festival in Gold Ring had become the last of its kind at this year, as events in the arena had not been held again for a long time, until end of the war. Shigu forces from the Northeast had taken control of the areas surrounding Tesae, the trade routes had soon dried up as the dark clouds of war draw near.
|Beginning 28 Rain-Calendar||Chief Events: Rain conquered Reono, Shigu Kingdom was fully completed.
The trade routes between Reono and Gold Ring had fully dried up, and many Eastern people had taken refuge to Gold Ring. Due to this, Gold Ring citizens had taken notice of the Dark Clouds of War. Gold Ring's government had discussed things over with the leader of Reono, ultimately deciding on their outlook and attitude to war.
- Because Gold Ring has a vow of "No-blood", Gold Ring cannot offer any forces up for battle, even if it occurs. However, Gold Ring's government vowed to treat all refugees equally, as fellow Gold Ring citizens. In the worst-case scenario, if Rain should ever reach the City of Gold Ring, Gold Ring will employ the minimum required efforts towards raising up their defenses.
Reono's side agreed to these rules entirely and had promised that their forces would fight, first and foremost to keep bloodshed away from Gold Ring's side of things.
|Approx. 33 Rain-Calendar||Chief Events: The genocide in Northwest Tal, Vetla areas by Shigu. Relationship between Western Sergals and Native Nevreans ceased, Continuous invasion to Gold Ring by Shigu, Western refugees emigrated to Gold Ring.
After taking over Eastern Reono, the Shigu Army looks towards Northwest Tal, and the areas of Vetla for invasion. As a result, the Western Sergals are annihilated. The cultural interchange and relationship between the Western Sergals and Native Nevreans cease.
Due to the methodology employed by the Shigu with their resources being pillaged, there's a demand to acquire even more land, eventually reaching for Gold Ring.
Having gained total control over Reono lands, they repeatedly tried to gain a foothold in Gold Ring but ultimately failed. The country lay in ruin because of battles spread across the whole of Tal. Disease began to spread and the cost of resources soared. 2/3rds of the Eastern and Northern population were lost due to famine, plague, etc. However, areas that did not suffer invasion by the Shigu Army such as the Nevrean region and the Southern lands other than Gold Ring were an exception, and were left relatively unharmed.
|Approx. 40 Rain-Calendar||Chief Events: Collapse of the Shigu Kingdom, Rain 's capture, End of World War, Birth of Yaji Telber.
|Beginning 40 Rain-Calendar||Chief Events: Climate of racial discrimination against Nevreans in Gold Ring, Bandit problems by Out Ring, Jakk emigrated to Gold Ring.
|Approx. 70 Rain-Calendar||Chief Events: Founded "Sabi no Wa".
|Beginning 70 Rain-Calendar||Chief Events: Guaranteed new law to give definite 'human rights' for Nevreans in Gold Ring.
|100 Rain-Calendar||Present Day|
Rain Silves' Lifetime
|In early stage of life|
|Birth||On the edge of the primeval Talyxian forests in the Tatla Desert region, Rain is born to a poor village which is often attacked by the forest's threatening Talyxian creatures.|
|1~8 years old||Because of her mutated appearance, the golden eyes, she was subject to discrimination by the villagers and suffered violent training that was almost equal to abuse by her religious mother. Her younger brother is also born during this period.|
|Approx. 8 years old||Unable to endure the discrimination and abusive training, Rain kills her mother and massacres the villagers, then disappears into the forest with her younger brother.
(However, there is another theory about this incident: She did not do harm towards villagers, instead, intense Talyxian monsters forest attacked her village and annihilated the villagers except for Rain and her younger brother as they fled to a forest.)
|8~12 years old||Rain's younger brother dies (presumably by illness).|
|The Rise of Leadership & Unification of the North|
|Approx. 12 years old||Rain leaves the forest where she grew up and gathers the villages in the Tatla area. She also encounters Leeric during this time.|
|Approx. 16 years old||While Rain was still continuing her journey to provide aid towards the whole Northern region through her leadership, Shigu lands already had become a small country with specific ambition aside from primitive villages.|
|Approx. 18 years old||She had come to be known as "General Rain, the Saviour", and thus govern Shigu which was just getting started as a Kingdom. Her fort had been built on the banks of the river, Lon Sodd, which would later become her castle. Her Kingdom had begun to develop around and from it as a starting point. Rain would then continue to aid poor villages without faltering, bolstered by the security built so far.|
|Approx. 20 years old||The whole of the North is unified. At that time, Zyn suddenly had left Rain's side. Then, Shigu's directional reign had begun to change gradually from this as a turning point.|
|Approx. 28 years old||Rain leads her army to expand her regional control, soon gaining total control over the Eastern Reono lands. The "Shigu Kingdom" is fully completed with the aid of Eastern agudner technical slaves.|
|Expansion of Territorial Rule|
|28 Years old ~||After gaining total control over the Reono and their lands, a plan was devised to expand her regional control. With the foothold in Reono lands, they were able to divide the war front into two: The invasion of the Western lands, as well as an ongoing plan to invade Gold Ring.
The Western campaign was won. Western Sergals were annihilated, leaving only a small number of survivors to flee for Gold Ring. The war campaign on Gold Ring was a struggle, ultimately collapsing with the failed invasion led by Leeric. After that, Rain attempted constant invasion attempts on Gold ring, all ending in failure. The Shigu Kingdom became impoverished.
|Rain's Last Years|
|Approx. 40 years old||The Shigu Kingdom collapses due to a shortage of resources and the exhaustion of frequent military failures.
Rain's son staged a coup at this time, taking Rain captive and escorting her to be imprisoned in Gold Ring.
|Approx. 60 years old||Rain dies, aged and senile.|
|Legacy After Death||After her death, Rain's legacy is handed down by the people and a new calendar is established with its first year as her birth year.
Because the Shigu army pillaged and exploited slavery to develop its technology during wartime, development in the Northern region is mainly focused on military tech. Later reforms in Shigu land become the foundation for the development of a large city as "Shigu Dukedom (or Shigu Public)", second only to Gold Ring.
It should be noted that Rain's age as mentioned above is in Sergal age, which corresponds to human age as follows: 12 years = 16-18 years, 16 years = 22 years, 28 years = 36 years. Rain also grew larger through her entire life because of her mutation. At age 16 she was the size of some larger Sergals, but by 28 she was considerably larger than most Sergals. After that, her height did not change so much, but her frame and body continued to grow larger. In her last years, she had become so obese that movement was difficult. Additionally, her fur color became decolorized, turning completely white over time.
