Argentis calendar

The Argentis calendar is the most widely used calendar in Nora. It was created by Argentis Argantum, royal high magus under Exalted King Alexander. It is a reform of the Elkan calendar.

The years are numbered from the year of Elknor the Wretched's defeat at the hands of Alexander, which has been labeled Nora Spell (NS). The years numbering before that are labeled Pro Iunctum (PI). There is no 'year zero' as 1 PI proceeds directly to 1 NS.
