The Calendar of Alquennas

As the Kingdoms of Man began to rise to power, one aspect of the world made confusion the norm and not the exception. At one time, there were over 35 different calendars for Alquennas. Some of the calendars were of human origins; others were of dwarven and elven origins. The calendars themselves were not consistent. Many tried and failed to create conversions from one to another. If one traveled a day from their home, they might encounter those that use a different calendar. This confusion caused havoc with trade, alliance and trying to beat the horde. A decision was made by the Nari family rulers of Azin. Their decision leads to the creation of the current calendar used on Alquennas.

00 (The Age of the Kingdom of Man)

The Alliance Calendar of Alquennas also known as the Alliance Accepted Calendar as it was created by committee took several acts of High kings and most likely most of the deities to be accepted by most of the world. It took the Kingdoms of Man to convince the council of rule to adopt a single consistent Calendar. It took 15 years to hammer out the details of the new calendar. They began discussing the new calendar in what is now known as 15 BK and it was adopted on mid winters day of what is now known as 00 or the Year of the new era.

The TK era of the Alliance Calendar has 422 days in it divided by 12 parts (months): These parts (months) are named for the northern hemispheres seasons with the exception of the part of Kingdom which is based of the birth part (month) of the ruler of the Nari' family when the Alliance Calendar was created.
