Neil Sedaka on Jorune

A scribe at the Querridim. Not bad. I drew this
about 25 years ago as JC "Joe Coleman."
Song - Calendar Girl. But for Jorune I think it would be Calendar Ke.

Recent correspondence for Jorune needs some clarification on dates, and I got tangled up in the terminal condition I have which is called "Joe's Brain" (it's going to kill me) and wanted to make a couple of clarifications.

The current year on Jorune is 3617. CR - Colonial Reckoning.

The formula for conversion to Jorune year has been:

  • Current year in the Gregorian calendar
  • Plus 1500
  • Minus 1

(I have no idea how this was determined other than Sholari's whim.)

So this is 3617 CR. The year for a game that would start in the next twelve months.
However, Year Zero on Jorune is 2203 AD, 23rd Century.

So the year 3617 CR is year 5820 AD (2203+3617)  on Earth. If it still exists

But probably not - there are differences in year lengths and day lengths. I'll dig out those number and hope for a spreadsheet formula to give that conversion.

I seriously doubt they will be using an A.D. calendar, or CE, in the Fifty-Seventh Century.

But I'm narrow-minded.

Don't get  your panties in a bunch because of it. Currently, on Earth, it is the year 2018. AD/CE. There are other calendarsWikipediais says:
