They also noted that in the 12 month you would experiences 4 distinct temperature changes, the Loremaster called these Laer, Firith, Rhiw, Echuir which translate in common to Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring.
Each race took this information developed their calendar system off of it.
Humans (Both the Kingdom and Quarg)
Originally a calendar system was developed based off of the current rulers. For example the current ruler of The Kingdom, King Estray rule started in 1ER and will continue until his death where his son Adoven will take the throne and stare 1AR. This is an ancient way of recording the dates, and have since been replaced with the BF and AF system which records based on the found of the The Kingdom
As Ronsog the Red is held as the one true king of the dwarves, all history is recorded in years before during and after his death. For example Dundathal vanished at 2500BR, Ronsog united the dwarven people and took rule in 0DB and and currently it would be 200AR. They also go by the human calendar, which since they communicate with the humans.
Elven Calendars run from the year of creation (1) and they continue forward. The elves have grouped the years into ages.
- The Age of Creation – Abbreviated AC
- The Age of Growth – Abbreviated AG
- The Age of Darkness – Abbreviated AD
- The Age of Exploration – Abbreviated AE (Current Year)
Because the Elven calendar is the easiest to understand, it is being gradually adopted by all races.
