Quick question really, what year is it in EVE? I am asking this question from a strictly role-playing point of view.

If you browse to here you will see the timeline states some 23341 AD as the current year.

Now first, if that is in fact the year, would it be right to assume that it is now 23343? or are the EVE years also roleplayed in the way they progress?

Secondly is AD roleplayed, does it stand for something other then "After Death"

Since the current dates are slowing changing to BCE and BC (Before Common Era) (Common Era) I am just really curious.

Again, just curious as i'm not sure what date to put in a new roleplaying vid i'm about to release.

Help please Very Happy

I can guarantee you it doesn't mean After Death -- doesn't mean that around here :P

(case in point: AD showed up *way, way* before modern English -- it means Anno Domini, which in Latin means "In the Year of our Lord," roughly.)

Hope that helps :)

It doesn't, but I appreciate the replies so far. and a clear explanation of the AD part. I just really want to know what year it is in EVE.

Now I know the whole year 105 bit, but not sure if that is supposed to be the actual EVE year. Still lost lol.

As Jamesw said above this year is now the year 107 - last year was 106 - and the first year POD pilots appeared was 105.

Hope thats clearer for you.

So, if we are in the year 107 now, what event was taken as the year 0?

The year 0 was set during the Yoiul Conference

Nah, the eve gate closed thousands of years before now. The Amarr empire certainly didn't exist when the Eve gate collapsed...

The year 107 is basically 107 years after the EST (Eve Standard Time) was concieved after all five empires found each other at the Youil conference according to the timeline...

EDIT: Oh, and according to the link given kindly by Erai above...They're nice things, the Eve chronicles, they give you all kinds of necessary info...

Erai is right.

The 23341 AD is so you know what kind of timeframe we're talking about. Eve takes place some 20000 years in the future (hence all the nifty gadgets and space-ships and stuff.)

Incidentally AD doesnt mean "after death", it stands for Anno Domini, which is latin for "the year of our lord"
