Okay... here we go again. Oh, I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I couldn't make it fit in elsewhere.
Okay, based on what Luc says in S3, the world is not very much older than 1000 years.
And... I guess I'm a bit unsatisfied with the world being so young, and thus so developed. Even if we do consider that the Runes have made it possible for the inhabitants of the Suikoden World to develop that fast, it makes no sense that there has been close to no development from S4 to S5 (there's around 200 years between those two games).
So, here's another attempt to explain it...
We know from ST, that there are 5 days in each week. An earth day, fire day, lightning day, water day and wind day, meaning that the weeks are obviously shorter than our 7 days. This means that their calendar is different from ours.
My question is: Is it possible that a "year" in Suikoden is much, much longer than 365 days/year?
Suikoden doesn't take place on our earth, but clearly another planet, universe, dimension, plane, reality... whatever, meaning that it is possible that the Suikoden world is moving slower around their sun, causing the years to be longer. This might actually make the "1000 years" that Luc talks about be... perhaps 2000 years if it was on Earth, or perhaps 10000?
I'd like your guesses and ideas about this.
EDIT: I read through the rules, and deleted the picture. Sorry.
