Nether Years (NY)[edit]

Netherese records are dated in Nether Years, which is a measurement of time originating from the initial establishment of the Netherese people.

Dalereckoning (DR)[edit]

Approximately two thousand years into the future, Cormanthyr and Dalesfolk historians recorded details about the Netherese under their own year-system of Dalereckoning (DR). A fair amount of lore is recorded in this system, so if you wish to translate from DR to NY you simply add 3859 to the DR date.
