Although many calendars exist among the peoples of the Inner Sea, the one in widest use employs Absalom Reckoning 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 influence, 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 (4712) is a leap year.
