Age of Ascendancy
- For the Absalom Reckoning analogue to the Age of Ascendancy, start with the Age of Destiny from -2499 AR, and continue through to the end of the Age of Enthronement.
The Age of Ascendancy marks more than 7,000 years of civilization in the Imperial Calendar of Tian Xia, starting with the establishment of Yixing in 1 IC, the Imperial Calendar's epoch year.
The age's name is derived from the rapid expansion of Yixing as a continent-spanning empire, and ends with Aroden's death in 7106 IC and the disintegration of Lung Wa into the Successor States, leading to the Age of Succession.1
