So the, erm, trouble
in Cyrodiil began in 2E 982. and as far as I can tell, ESO launched with a lore-date of 983. Considering the day/night cycle of the game, someone who'd been playing since launch would now be early Second Seed, 2E 600. The AddOn "Clock" by Tyxz supports this idea as does my go-to lore site, uesp: http://esoclock.uesp.net/
My question is two-fold: Do veteran players use Tamriel Standard Time, and as such, have their characters aged 18 years since the start of the game? Should new players who care about roleplaying assume that it is now 600?
If the latter is the case, that would mean my young Breton would have grown up with the war. I would love to play the game this way, since having a "shared reality" is one of the things that attracted me to ESO. I'm quickly learning that it isn't the case (is anyone else here the Vestige?)
