Current date (as of 2787 AD): ID.219497
The Imperial dating system is divided into ID (Imperial Date with 0 being the year the Empire was founded) and pID (Pre-Imperial Date) with the year number as a suffix. The calender is based on the orbital period of Alcanti, with each year lasting 360 Alcanti or 420 Earth days. The dating system is then divided into eras, each of which ends after a significant event.
The full date is normally restricted to official records; when discussing history certain numbers are moved depending on how far back the event was (For example an event that occured a century ago is labelled ID.743.24 while an event that occured 4000 years ago is logged as ID.0843.2). Most use the dating values ID.000-ID.999 as shorthand (Identical to referring 1992 as '92) regarding recent events.
This system is expanded upon in regards to month/day. Records are marked as ID.(Year).(exp. year).(Month).(day) for instance January 17th 2011 is ID.011.2.1.17. The calender is split evenly into 12 months with 30 days each.
the 12 Months of the year are named after a mix of mythological figures, distinguished names and seasonal periods, using a broken Dracid word for a suffix
- Ardashida - Ardash's period
- Batana - Bata's glory
- Sendara - Seed resting
- Khalist - Khal's blessing
- Urielna - Uriel's glory
- Oskavarida - Oskavarum's period
- Arcarenna - Arcaren's glory
- Senvinida - senvin's period
- Vospida - Vospus' period
- Drakoida - Drakon's period
- Selpinod - Selp's time
- Ultinod - Final time
A common trait is a use of the suffix -Ida which is a broken form of the Dracid word kosida meaning 'period', the suffix -Nod is a broken form of the word panthod meaning 'time'.
Each month is split into tendays (Dracid: daskvokanus, the imperial 10-day equivelent of a week) and each month lasts three tendays.
