Traditionally the Gawn, like many ancient people in our world, record time by the year of the king’s reign: “The fifth year in the reign of King Gered the Bald,” for example. Some Gawn still follow this convention, and since King Alaric the Great is still king (in theory) they measure time by how many years since Alaric took the throne. It is Year 98 by that reckoning. Other cultures have other dating systems; for example, the Elves count the number of years since the (supposed) creation of the universe.
