Of Frost and Fortune
Dalereckoning is taken from the Year of Sunrise, when the Standing Stone was raised by the elves of Cormanthor and the human Dalesfolk. Since this time, humans were permitted by the Elven Court to settle in the more open regions of the forests. In some texts, primarily those which do not have direct ties to Dales history, Dalereckoning is called Freeman’s Reckoning (FR). The calendar is widely used in Faerûn but has not spread beyond its shores. Dalereckoning is the most common year measurement and is utilized in nearly all contemporary histories across the realm.
Time in Faerûn is measured in tendays and months. Three tendays fall in a month and twelve months fall in a year. The calendar below offers the traditional Calendar of Harptos that many use on the main continent.
