How to read Orzikian time
Orzikian time is somewhat similar to earth time in its structure. It is split into equivalents of years, days, hours, minutes, and seconds. However, there is no Orzikian equivalent to months. All time is based on “days” or Rotational Cycles (RC). Below is a breakdown of the Orzikian time and their earth equivalents:
A Rotational Tick (RT) is approximately equal to 1.2 Earth seconds.
A Rotational Notch (RN) is equal to 96 Earth Seconds, or 80 Orzikian Rotational Ticks. It is used in the same manner as minutes are used to mark time.
A Rotational Fragment (RF) is equal to 128 Earth Minutes, or 80 Orzikian Rotational Notches. It is used in the same manner as hours are used to mark time.
A rotational Cycle is equivalent to 85.33 Earth Hours, or 40 Rotational Fragments. It is used in the same manner as days are used to mark time.
An Orbital Cycle is equivalent to 6.7 Earth years, or 685 Orzikian Rotational Cycles. It is used in the same manner as years are used to mark time.
On Orzik, time is written as below:
[RF 1840 RN][RC 655][OC 3749]
Understood as 18 Rotational Fragments, 40 Rotational Notches (similar to writing earth time, for example “5:30”); Rotational Cycle 655 (this is the 655th “day” in this Orbital Cycle); Orbital Cycle 3749. Recording time began on Orzik 3,749 Orbital Cycles ago. Prior to that, the ancient peoples of Orzik only recorded events.
How to read Orzikian Measurements
Orzikian measurements are extremely similar to the Earth Metric System. However, the longer distances are about 1.5 times the length of a meter/kilometer.
An Orzikian ciclyk (cc) is approximately the size of one Earth Millimeter
A hi-ciclyk is 1 ½ Earth meters
A lo-ciclyk is 1,500 Earth meters
General timeline of the Tragic War
The Tragic War spans the course of one hundred Orbital Cycles of Orzikian history. If calculated to Earth time, it would be equivalent to 670 years. The Tragic War is broken down into four eras. These are represented below:
Time spanned - [RC 356][OC 3645] ~ [RC 10][OC 3749]
[OC 3645] - [OC 3670] = Bla’zorzik Era
[OC 3671] - [OC 3696] = Retaliatory Era
[OC 3697] - [OC 3722] = Fragmented Era
[OC 3723] - [OC 3749] = Tyranorzik Era
In the post Tragic War years, the remnants of the Republic of Orzik began the Age of Rebellion.
