Although many calendars exist among the peoples of
the Inner Sea, the one in widest use employs Absalom
Reckoning (ar) for all of its dates. This reckoning system
is based on the foundation of Absalom (which occurred
on 1 Abadius, 1 ar), and because of Absalom’s expansive
inf luence, the city’s calendar has achieved great popularity
throughout the region. In Absalom Reckoning, the day of
the month is always given first, followed by the name or
number of the month, with the year coming last.
Golarion spins on its axis roughly once every 24 hours. A
week consists of 7 days, with 52 weeks per year. A year has 12
months, each of which corresponds to a popular deity and
(roughly) to a single cycle of Golarion’s sole moon. In order
to most accurately ref lect reality, many calendars across
Golarion add in leap days. In the Absalom Reckoning, the
leap day is tacked on to the end of Calistril and occurs on
every year divisible by 8. Thus, the current year (4711) is not
a leap year, but 4704 was and 4712 will be.
