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.

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)
