Hey all,
Thanks to a calendar program I recently found at The Starting Tavern I took the time to create a calendar for Pathfinder spanning the years 4707-4715 (including phases of the moon, but no Holidays/Festivals though. Sorry).
As more time permits I'll add further years. Check the link below and tell me what you think.

Thanks,

Very sweet work VR!

Calendar's have always been an essential part of my campaigns but he work involved in creating them is so tedious.

As per Sean Mahoney's suggestion, I flip-flopped the white/grayscale portions of the calendar to make it more printer friendly. Follow the link below for the new version.

Unforunately, the only way I could find for google to keep the formatting was to save it as a PDF file, which may not allow someone to edit to add your own information.
So if you would like the original Word document which I used please send me an e-mail request at mlenehan1(at)yahoo(dot)com and I will be happy to send it to you.

Thanks again for your input,
V

Very cool, though yeah being able to make notes on it would be nice. Also so would having all the known holidays listed on it. :)

Your wish is my command, Mistress. I included all the festivals and holidays listed in the ISWG. If there are any others from other sources please let me know and I'll try and add them later this week.

Very cool I like the word doc version so we can add our own stuff to it and save it. Great work.

Glad you like it and don't forget to tell your friends. Seriously though, I noticed that the font size for the events on the 21st of Sarenith somehow got changed from their original size of 7.5 down to 6.5 (dang copy/paste). You can safely resize them back to 7.5 without distorting the cell. It'll make them a little easier to read.

Great work, and thank you for sharing!

Make it dispense food now!

Seriously, though. Thanks for sharing. Dotting this for KM use.


This is exactly what I've been looking for, thanks for sharing.

Liberty's Edge

Marked so I can come back later. Sounds super interesting.


Very nice, but isn't that basically the Gregorian calendar with different names for the months?


Just finished book 1 of Kingmaker with my group and the calender is going to be super useful. Thanks.

WOW, I had forgotten all about this. Looks like i'll have to add some more years to it this weekend.

@Indagare
According to JJ and the ISWG the Golarion calendar apes our calendar with the exception of the leap year occurring every eight years instead of our four. So yes it is essentially the Gregorian calendar with different names, up until 4716 (our 2016) when we have a leap year and Golarion doesn't. Which is why I stopped at 4715 (2015) (that and my wife's anger at how much of the weekend this project took up).

Okay, but I thought 2016 was going to be a leap year. It's divisible by 4. Unless it's being skipped to keep things lined up...


From the Inner Sea World Guide wrote:


Golarion spins on its axis roughly once every 24 hours. A
week consists of 7 days, with 52 weeks per year. A year has 12
months, each of which corresponds to a popular deity and
(roughly) to a single cycle of Golarion’s sole moon. In order
to most accurately reflect reality, many calendars across
Golarion add in leap days. In the Absalom Reckoning, the
leap day is tacked on to the end of Calistril and occurs on
every year divisible by 8. Thus, the current year (4711) is not
a leap year, but 4704 was and 4712 will be.

So while 2016 will be a leap year in RL, 4716 in Golarion will not be.

4716 isn't divisible by 8 therefore in Absalom Reckoning, it is not a leap year on Golarion.

I feel your pain. I wrote a crazy insane Google Docs spreadsheet that renders a calendar for nearly any month/year in Absalom Reckoning. My wife just doesn't understand the true extent of my obsession with making the best possible effort to ensure an accurate in-game calendar for her and her friends.

Thank you, been looking for this for some time.

Just wanted to chime in and add my thanks for posting this. I've been using it to great effect in keeping track of events for the Skull & Shackles game that I am a player in. I'm maintaining a journal here on the boards, and this calendar is exactly what I needed to help me keep the days at sea and dates straight. In fact, I actually add a link to each of my journal entries right onto the appropriate calendar date in the Word file. Super helpful!
