Though Avlis as a world is only four thousand years old, it has a rich history. That history is detailed in the sections on the right. A brief overview can be gained from the timeline shown below:
Ongoing Player Actions
Time period where online players are using the world. The server year is 2166 A.O.D. as of July 2006. The Avlis Calendar calculator suggests that the game year was 2050 A.O.D. when the Mikona server first went live, on 1 June 2002. However, note that the closer dates get to the present, the further off the calculator's date will get from the actual server date. The difference may be as much as 18 years. The current official game date is displayed when you log in, and can be viewed from the custom radial menu at any time.
