Kinslett Notation

The official format for recording of dates in the Algorian Calendar system, Kinslett Notation is named after a scribe known in the annals of history only as Kinslett, who apparently was a royal scribe during the earliest years of the Third Age.

According to the rules of Kinslett Notation, date segments are to be abbreviated in the following manner:

Date Segment Abbreviation
Age #A (e.g. 1A, 2A, 3A, ...)
Year ### (e.g. 126, 304, 694, ...)
Month M#(1-letter Season) (e.g. M1Q, M3B, M4G, ...)
Week # (e.g. 1, 2, 3 or 4) (1-digit, referring to the week’s position in the month)
Day # (e.g. 1, 2, 3 … 7) (1-digit, referring to the day’s position in the week)

Date segments are always listed in descending order of specificity. For example:

Midweek of the 3rd week in 13th Moon of the year 690 would be abbreviated 3A690M1Q34.

3A = 3rd Age
690 = the year 690
M1Q = the First Moon of Quiet (the 13th month)
3 = the third week
4 = the fourth day
