Record keeping in Morlonde has been beset by two variant systems ever since the Salien tribes landed on her shores. The older, and more innaccurate system, was introduced by the Cymren sages and is known as Morlonde Reckoning. This is meant to represent the amount of time passed since the island of Morlonde was supposedly raised from the sea-bed by Giants to be their home.
The other, newer, system was introduced by the Venerable Eadred who lent it his name. It was calculated some time during the War of the Thorns to support the house of Westreth in that it began with the departure of the Westreth kings from the north to reach Morlonde. It has been in use in Soleice as well ever since the semi-conversion of their people to X in Y.
There is a third, less well known system of time-measurement that has been in use since the founding of the High Worship for purely ecclesiastical functions. This measure is known as the Reign of Kings (RK). The time of the RK recordings is even earlier, for it begins in 650 CE; thus, for example, in Temple work the date 350 CE would be recorded as -300 YK.
