G is for…

My A to Z Challenge theme is: characters from my series, From the Ashes.

Since no one in my series has a name that starts with a G, I'm gonna improvise a little on this one and give you some backstory today. Without further ado…

G is for…

The Great Stellar Wars

103 years after the fall of the Galactic Alliance, The Century of Darkness came to an end, and The Great Stellar Wars began. The democracy was overthrown, many of the well renowned senators and governors were brutally murdered. Individual worlds and systems were fought over by bands of terrorists and gangs.

For 75 years, there was bloodshed and destruction in all of the systems that were once part of the Galactic Alliance. Historical monuments were destroyed, as were large cities. Many small villages were spared.

A group of revolutionaries spoke up and gained power. They rallied their home system to unite to fight against the anarchy that was poisoning the rest of the star systems in the once great Galactic Alliance. They united the star systems, created strict laws so that what happened to the Alliance could never happen again.

The Imperial Alliance was born. In the IA, they created the ASW calendar. Many cultures and civilizations had been destroyed or nearly destroyed during the Great Stellar Wars, and so a new calendar to track the years was created. Year 0 was the year the Stellar Wars ended and the Imperial Alliance began.

Sorry I'm so late today, I didn't sleep well last night, and things have been a bit crazy. I'll try and get around to as many people as I can today, starting with the people who comment.

And don't forget to check out other A to Z Participants and my new blog My Unofficial Guide To Everything which is about a lot of random stuff.

Have a wonderful day!

Sounds like a mix of the modern age and the Carolingian period. Interesting.
