Signing of Gregorian Compact

A Faction Paradox representative signs the Gregorian Compact. (COMIC: Political Animals)

The Gregorian Compact was a contract between the court of King George II of England and Faction Paradox which was negotiated in January 1752. (COMIC: Bêtes Noires & Dark Horses) The Gazetteer considered this to be humanity's first involvement in the War in Heaven. (COMIC: Political Animals)

Description Edit

In the Compact, the Faction "purchased" the eleven days from 3 September to 13 September 1752 which were "lost" when England switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian. These days became the site of the Eleven-Day Empire. What the Faction paid for the days was unknown. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

According to Never Give A Sucker An Even Break: History's Dodgiest Deals, incumbent Prime Minister Henry Pelham called the compact "an opportunity to relieve the somewhat delusional from the burden of their unfathomably abundant assets". (PROSE: Weapons Grade Snake Oil)

History Edit

The Godfather-lieutenant who signed the compact arrived in England at a reception in Portsmouth, then appeared to the King's court in another reception at St James's Palace. (PROSE: The Book of the War) There, he performed the infamous Shadow Dance (COMIC: Bêtes Noires & Dark Horses) and negotiated the terms for the agreement. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

By request of the Service, the signing of the compact took place in the upstairs room of a pub (COMIC: Bêtes Noires & Dark Horses) in St Giles-in-the-Field. (PROSE: The Book of the War) Corwyn Marne's father was present. (AUDIO: Coming to Dust)

In 1774, Francesca and her follower searched for Mayakatula in the area near the pub where the compact had been signed. (COMIC: Bêtes Noires & Dark Horses) By the early 21st century, the site of the pub was occupied by a clothing store called Fashion Paradox. (PROSE: The Book of the War)
