The people of Khorvaire mark the passage of time according to the standards developed by the dragonmarked houses (partially based on draconic measurements) & sanctioned by the rulers of Galifar almost 1'000 years ago.

Days are 24 hours long, divided into day and night. 7 days make up a week, weeks a month, and 12 months a year. The months correspond to the 12 moons of Eberron, and the prominent moon carries the name of the month in which its orbit brings it closest to the planet.

The moons and months are tied to the dragonmarks by tradition and legend, as shown below. A thirteenth mark and moon once existed. Most consider the thirteenth mark to be nothing more than legend, but there are those who know better.

Counting of Years

While a particular culture may count the years dating from some significant event in its past, the common calendar of Khorvaire is the Galifar Calendar. This reckoning of years was developed during the reign of Galifar the Dark, third ruler to sit upon the throne of Galifar. It counts from the founding of the kingdom to the present day. The dragonmarked houses adopted and use this calendar, as do the governments and peoples of Khorvaire’s nations. The campaign begins in the year 998 YK (the 998th Year since the Kingdom was founded).
