I'm reading part four and it said "these past few years". Does anyone know how many years have gone by? I want to know before I continue.

It's hard to put down!

Hi Andy and welcome to our forum! thumbsup.gif

Without the book in front of me, perhaps between when Anna first found D'ni in 9368 DE and the Fall which occurred on 9400 DE. It doesn't answer the question directly, but serves as a starting point.

Thanks for the welcome!

I read on and after connecting many other "years gone by" references, I put it together and got 10 years. biggrin.gif

Can you show us how you solved it? It will make a good discussion.

I'd be happy to! biggrin.gif

Ok so it said that Anna was 18 when she found D'ni. A few months went by in part 3 but not a full year. So part four mentioned "these past few years" indicating that some years had gone by. Then in part 5 it said that 15 years had gone by between parts four and five, and Gehn was born then. Part 6 says that it takes place four years after part 5, and it also states that Anna's mother died 35 years ago. In part 2, Anna was 18 and it said her mother died six years ago, so 12 + 35 = 47. 47 - 4 = 43, - 15 = 28. 28 - 10 = 18. smile.gif

Another way I could have solved it is by looking up the years Gehn was born and when Ti'ana discovered D'ni (which as you said was 9368), but that would have involved leaving the book. So Gehn was born in 9392. 92 - 68 = 24. 18 + 24 = 42. In which case it would have been 9 years following the same equation as above, and the book would have rounded 34 years to 35 years after Anna's mother's death.
