Caution, this timeline contains spoilers for books 1-3.

The Shandorian calendar begins with the date of Shandor’s founding. This, coincidentally, was the same year as the founding of the United Kingdoms of Arien, upon which common time is based.  Shandor has a different new year than the former Arienish states, but otherwise shares most measures of time and season with the rest of the continent.  For ease of correlating Shandorian years to our own world’s, just add 1000 years.  Shandor’s 828 looks very like our 1828 in terms of technology, and, to an extent, fashions.

    1. Yes, he’s just a wee babby. Not remotely as old as others with similiar, uh, genetics. Putting certain other birthdays in there would mean entering a much longer set of years on the other side of the founding. Which will probably happen eventually.
