One year, for example O.E 1 to O.E 2, is significantly longer than one of our own years. There are 8 months in the year Xzeno - Spring Kelno - Birth Zeza - Summer Meno - Life Tenite - Fall Vulga - Age Klemo - Winter Tolith - Death
5: The Central Clan The central clan existed in the center of the island of Sothiroc, surviving along the banks of the Klag River. The Central Clan formed in A.E, the Ancient Era, long before the Old Era. But it was not until O.E that it began to significantly develop. Throughout the first few hundred years of its existence in A.E, it was a poor hunter-gatherer society of people, that communicated only through hand motion and body language. They had not developed any formal way of producing fire to cook food, it was mostly eaten raw. It had no government system, nor did they hunt for one another, they stayed together in a group to protect each other from predators.
6: In late A.E the clan started to structure itself much better, and clan members started hunting, not just for themselves, but also to help fellow members of the clan prosper. They began to develop a language system known as Azahnthiel, a language that was supposedly taught to them by the gods. Only a few members of the clan could speak Azahnthiel, and those who could only knew the language at a highly basic level. The Central Clan O.E 1 At the end of the Ancient Era, and the dawn of the Old Era the Central Clan began to divide, into five noble members. Kala, Nula, Sala, Hiroc, And Sothil. Nula, Kala, And Sala were three brothers, all 3 very strong, very ambitious, and ready to rebel away from the clan. Hiroc and Sothil were two of the only speakers of the Azahnthiel, and were much more intelligent than their fellow clan members.
7: Between the years of O.E 1 and Zeza of O.E 19, the Central clan made many developments. The most revolutionary thing developed by the Central clan during this period was the ability to create and maintain fire. With this, the clan had something to cook their food with, and something to light the long dark nights. Zeza, O.E 19 The Great Separation of Powers In the month of Zeza during O.E 19, Kala, along with 42 other people separated from the Central clan, and headed north to form its own clan. Following Kala's separation, during the month Meno, Nula and Sala separated as well. Sothil and Hiroc then separated the following month of Tenite.
8: The Kala Clan Zeza, O.E 19 - Kala Clan separates from the central clan and heads north Tolith, O.E 19 - Kala clan settles as a hunter-gather society in the mid north region of the island of Sothiroc. Kala I is the chief of the clan, the population is 43. Volga, O.E 25 - (Tools, clothing, and structure of the Clan; See p. 11) Meno, O.E 37 - Kala hunters develop much more advanced ways for the coastal mid north region of Sothiroc, The clan starts to adapt to the the area. They hunt primarily on the large mammals native to the area, and the gathering of wild fruit. Population: 49
9: The Kala Clan Zeza, O.E 49 - Kala language and communication increase greatly, maintaining itself as a much more advanced nomadic tribe. Volga O.E 50 - (Tools, clothing, and structure of the clan, see page 13) Kelno O.E 64 - Kala begin developing fishing methods aside from the typical hunting. Tolith O.E 79 - Most members of the Clan can speak the Kala language fluently. New structure is given to the clan, and specific duties are given to certain members to better run the clan. Population: 67
11: The clothing the clan used around the time of O.E 25, was rather basic, simple animal hides and furs wrapped around the body for the function of warmth or protection. The tools used were very basic as well. Rocks, and sticks used to make life easier, thin slate rocks used for removing animal hides, sharpened sticks for hunting. The structure of the clan was basically a mixture of anarchy and monarchy, A chiefdom, or despotism to be precise. there were no rules other than to obey the orders of the chief. The most prestigious members, the clan nobles, were the strong males, the best hunters. Prestige was often displayed by the size of the hide wore over the nobles shoulders, the larger the hide, the larger the kill, thus displaying that nobles prominence as a hunter. The Kala language, was extremely basic, limited to a few words and names. It had a lot of influence from the Azahnthiel language used by the more intelligent members of the central clan, like the Hirocs and Sothils. The Kala had no writing system for their language, it was only spoken. See page 12 for the words used in the kala language.

13: The clothing the clan used around O.E 50 was relatively the same as O.E 25. Tools hit a technological breakthrough around O.E 40. they began wedging sharpened rocks into sticks, and using a durable string like bark from the native azmek tree to tie, which the Kala referred to as "otsil" The structure of the clan was still the same as before, the chief is still the dominant Despot and figure-head of the clan. The clan, being hunter-gatherers, previously had no type of building or structure to stay in, until around O.E 47 when a method of temporary overnight housing was developed. It involved flattening a piece of land, laying a hide over it, and making a rectangular wall of stakes around the hide. These sleep areas were called "Ededka" named after the clan member who first started using the idea. See page 14 for the addition to the kalan language from O.E 25 to 50.

16: The Kalan Culture O.E 19 - 50 The Kala people live in the north region of Sothiroc, where they travel around on a daily basic. Traveling and hunting by day, resting in the night. They hunt a area for a small amount of time, then switch areas, letting animals from the previous area repopulate. They travel in a circle around a wide range of land over the course of each year, reaching the southern most point in the winter, and the northern most point in the summer. There is a special event that the kalan people actively participated in on a monthly basis known as 'The Hunt" where all the male members of the clan, young and old, hunt from dawn to dusk. The older members increase their own hunting skills, whilst the younger actively watch and learn the skills necessary for when they are old enough to participate. A feast is held
17: from dawn to dusk the following day, along with a festival full of dancing and chanting. The Clan Nobles have paintings done on their body using the blood of fallen animals, from the common hand print, to intricate sets of markings, At the festival it was good luck for a noble to have the most painting on his body at the end of the day. The hunt was adopted into the Clans traditions around O.E 27. The Hunt is a excellent boost of morale, and instills a deep sense of pride to be amongst the Kala people. The chief of the Clan, Kala, Participated as the head of The Hunt, and directs all activities in the festival the day after. With such a small population it was important the chief had a close relation to all fellow members.
18: Xzeno O.E 82 - A natural rock formation is made into a Kalan sanctuary, known as Oskularkokesh. The Kalan people visit the sanctuary every xzeno or kelno and hold a ceremony to pray for a blessing of a good hunting season. Klemo O.E 95 - The Kalan language undergoes much evolution from O.E 50 to O.E 100, but this year in specific had several new words added into the kalan vocabulary. This advance in communication allows the clan to run much more successfully Volgor O.E 100 - (tools, clothing, and structure of the clan, see page 20) Kelno O.E 108 - The Great Divide. Following the death of Kala VII, his twin sons, Kala VIII and Kanamesh have a power dispute on who was to rule the clan.
19: Tolith O.E 108 - A kala military system begins to develop amongst the infighting of the clan. A warrior class begins to develop. Klemo O.E 117 - Kala VIII dies in battle, his son, Kala IX takes control. Meno O.E 118 - Kanamesh is assassinated, his son, Kanamesh II takes controls. Volgor O.E 127 - The infighting hits a explicit level of violence. Men, women, and children alike become involved, and more than 50% of the clan is dead due to the war, or a direct cause of the war. The great divide would be remembered as the bloodiest period in Kalan history, and would be remembered through oral tradition for hundreds of years to come.
20: The Clothing used by the Kala clan around O.E 100, was much more sophisticated than that of O.E 50. Tying hide together with otsil became much more commonplace around this time period, along with advances in the construction of clothing, the meaning and use of clothing began to have more a ceremonial importance. Necklaces made of bone and teeth became common with nobles of the clan, and more types of elaborate hide combination began to arise. The tools of the time were still basic sticks and rocks. Hammers, spears, cleavers, stone knives, ceremonial staffs, clubs, and ax/hatchets. The structure of the clan changed as well, the line between the chief and nobles, and that of the regular clan members grew stronger, the chief began to take a higher stranglehold of power.

23: Kalan Culture O.E 50 - 100 The Kalan culture really began to formalize during these construction years of the clan. The Kalan Sanctuary Oskularkokesh became the sight of yearly prayer and celebration. The Kalan people began to form their own unique sovereignty, and culture, specific to them. With the advances in communications in these years, the clan advanced at the quickest rate it ever would. The Hunt was still the big event for the Kalan people, and was still overseen by the chief. With the development of fishing techniques in O.E 64, allowed the Kalan people a wider range of food. After fishing started becoming widespread, the Kalan people spent more time along the coast in the north. The Hierarchy of the clan became much more defined and male dominated, the chief himself began assuming much more authority in the clan, oral laws began to take place in Kalan culture.
24: Klemo O.E 132 - Kala IX And Kanamesh II die in battle, Kanamesh II had no heirs, and Kala IX's son Kala X takes control of the clan, and then reunifies the clan. The Kalan population was 31, the Kanamesh population was 14. Tolith O.E 132 - Kala X has the former members of the Kanamesh rebellion who killed members of the Kalan people, executed. Kelno O.E 141 - Kalan weaponry begins to develop, along with combat training. Xzeno O.E 147 - The Kalan military begins to form, to defend against another rebellion if one ever arose. It consisted of a group of lightly armed and armored young men. Zeza O.E 151 - A new invention arises known as the "Hanatak". A bag made of hide tied together with otsil, with one piece of hide as a base, and four other pieces of hide tied, or sewed to the base and then to each other, sealing it off.
25: The opening of the bag could be tied shut to protect the items inside, and otsil straps could also be added it it could be easily carried on the shoulders. This newer sophisticated way of carrying objects was greatly revolutionary in a hunter-gatherer society like the Kala. Zeza O.E 178 - The Kala law "No work, No food" and "Do not steal from another clan member" become orally official in the clan. Volga O.E 200 - (Tools, Clothing, and Structure of the cla, see Page. 26 ) Kelno O.E 204 - The Kalan governmental structure begins to evolve and formalize. There are 3 rank positions, and 1 status position. Chief, Vice Chief, Priest of Oskularkokesh, the status position is Clan Noble. Meno O.E 213 - Kala XIII dies, and his son Kalan Kanamesh becomes chief, the 1st chief without the name Kala.
26: O.E 100 - 200 The clothing used by the Kala clan from O.E 100 to O.E 200 used the very same materials it always has, animal hides and furs. However, clothing construction methods especially those including the tying and sewing together hide with otsil. Several fashions arose specific to nobles and commoners. Nobles began to typically wear a hide vest, and a hide kilt, with a hide covering the left shoulder, and a hide brace on the right wrist. See p. 27 for picture. commoners typically wore a fur kilt, and hide straps going from the back over the left shoulder, then down over the belly. The tools had barely any evolution, for the simple stick and stone technology served all that was required. The chief remained the dominant figure head. The vice chief was typically the chief's first son, unless the chief selects a clan noble to be vice. The priest of Oskularkokesh is a noble selected by the chief to be head of religious ceremonies for life. The clan nobles are high status members of the clan, usually descendants of former chiefs like Kanamesh. The Clan's diet is fish, meat, and berries.

29: Kalan Culture O.E 100 - 200 The Kalan Culture in these years revolved mainly around the building of a basic military, as well as the strengthening of the chiefdom, and the creation of other ranks and titles to reduce the chief's responsibilities. With the development of a warrior class, statuses and responsibilities in the clan became prestigious, a warrior of the clan held more status than any typical clansmen. *view on females in Kalan Society* Females in the tribal Kalan society were highly under-appreciated, almost to the point abuse. They had no 'say-so, or status in the clan, and were just seen as child bearers and mothers. The Mothers and children would usually wait at a location, whilst the males of the clan went to hunt. In some cases, the female that the clan chief had his first son with would be treated with more respect, as being the mother of the next chief.
30: The new Kalan Law "No work, no food" set into place during these years, along with the law "Do not steal from another clan member" With the creation of the hanatak, carrying food and items became much easier, and clansmen started hunting not just for themselves and children, but to generously, evenly feed and preserve all members of the clan. After the Kanamesh rebellion, and the formation of a military, the clan had no other achievements of technology or structure in these years. Literal translations of the Kalan spoken laws: "Kala saksa ol omatsata, ol ragata" = Kala order no work, no food "Kala soksa ol samprek pretsin kaletpor" = Kala order no steal from clan members
