Background on Calendar System

It is unknown how old the planet is, as written history has only been around less than 1000 years, begun by the Elves. The year is currently 20 Immodire, abbreviated (Imde). The Great War of Althea happened in 10 Primete, abbreviated (Pmte). The switch from Primete to Immodire is termed as “Degenete Decentat.”

Within Genedem and Djerak, there are established calendar systems with other means to count months, years, and dates. Humankind adopted the Elvish terms for time markers after writing entered their main culture.

Most of Althea uses all of these terms now, including the Elvish coinages marking before and after the Great War.
