In AS 12 in Meridies I first heard 1650 and then a couple of years
later it was "pre 17th Century" and the reasoning I heard had to do
with gunpowder and pistols. I was content that QEI was included in
both so I just didn't worry about it.
It was some 20 years later in the Midrealm that I heard people using
a begining date.
Anyone want argue that point for a while? (I don't)
