After Breaking is the standard description of time in years in Amantia. The term spawns from a popularly accepted origin story for the realm of Amantia, the Breaking, in which the single Great Kingdom broke apart, and with it the land split and drifted into the different continents we know today. Most of the history from before 2000 AB has been lost. Due to magicks unknown, both arcane and divine, no one, not even the greatest scholars and diviners, have been able to determine the story of the Breaking with certainty—though it does continue to be a popular topic of study. The greatest artifacts and objects of power predate The Breaking.
