FNH said: As another has said, complex numbers will be difficult to use. I suggest a simple large number. Start off with a large numbers for each era
So modern period would start with 1000, crypt era at 2000 and GFL era at 3000.
Rookie 3000, Starter 3200, All Pro 3400 . Then if you have a story to be read between Rookie and Starter, you drop it into the middle of the range at 3100. Then if that had a follow up story you would subdivide again and it would be numbered as 3150.
Doing this gives it simple sequence with a lot of gaps to be filled.
I'd also add the suggested three letter code for the series after the number, so the sets can be identified on a shelf ( e.g. 3200-GFL )
