Records of Events.Edit
In Faerûn there are a series of events that take place that mark up the beginning of a year or age, each year or age is named for major events that take place. In most terms you will rely on the year to year system, but when speaking with scholars they may use ages to define particular stretches of time. These are usually longer than a year, though in several instances this is not true. Below you will see a listing from year 0 to year 1400, there are some years not listed, this is because they lacked any significant events, or because they lacked a significant event but belong to an age length.
Ages can be seen below the year to year time line.
