The Old Land
Ancient Calendar Spread Newly across the World
The most common system for tracking the days, months and years in Ealdland. The Sun Emperor Abelardus Ingenos I adopted this form of calendar from the Niirians, after conquering them nearly 700 years ago. Implemented in territories of the Sun Empire, it quickly spread to much of the rest of the Old Land. By its reckoning, years are referenced by placing an A.E. (Abelardian Era) or B.A.E. (Before Abelardian Era) in front of the appropriate numerals.
