Calendar of the Empire - Member Resources
Written By: Ellen Million (Writer), Elizabeth Barrette (Developer), Valerie Joanne Higgins (Artwork)
When writers submit a story, they must select a date so that it shows up on the timeline in order. Here is an article about the Calendar of Torn World.
 
 

Although the Empire recognizes that there were 'sundered times,' they do not realize that the isolated areas were actually flowing at different times, so they apply their calendar to every civilization that they meet. This causes some disconnect, because the Upheaval was a different number of years ago in each time shard, but scientists explain these discrepancies as poor record-keeping on the part of more primitive cultures, bad science, and inaccurate mythology.

They break their calendar into 10 months, each with 3 tendays (weeks) of 10 days. Month 1 is the technical start of spring. There are, however, 305 solar days in the year, so there are 5 'free days' at the beginning of the calendar, which are holidays.
