Calendar

People are concerned with the events of their own era, marking time by reference to the recent past. Not surprisingly, Khorvairians use a calendar devised in the early days of the Kingdom of Galifar. Hundreds of years ago, the dragonmarked houses adopted this system of timekeeping, claiming that it was partially based on draconic measurements.

Years are numbered, with the founding of the Kingdom of Galifar marking year 1. For 998 years, since Galifar declared his kingdom, the years have been designated YK for the Year since the founding of the Kingdom of Galifar. Years before that time are marked with a minus sign. Thus, the year of King Galifar’s birth is known as – 45 YK.
