From what I've read in [[Erin M. Evans]] novels, Abeir is a really sad world. I kinda feel sorry for those guys Ao returned to Abeir in the Second Sundering before gods such as Enlil stopped the "returning process". They do not have normal access to magic (as the Weave do not exists on Abeir), the world is forsaken even by the gods (that are terrified of it), is full of deadly stuff that is dangerous to even itself... and it seems years, if not ages, behind Toril in stuff like science or other kinds of civilization developments. So, as for the question, not. Abeir does not have a known canonical system for recounting time. The vayemniri use the generations system to recall their history: "In the time of [[Kepeshkmolik Thymara]], daughter of Kharadin, of the line of [[Shasphur]]"... that means Kharidin existed at least 4 generations ago, as Thymara is the grand grandmother of [[Kepeshkmolik Dumuzi|Dumuzi]]... but we don't know how long is a vayemniri generation (because, Thymara had at least three clutches, and [[Kepeshkmolik Ashoka|Ashoka]] was the only survivor of the last one in 1486 DR); and Shasphur is out of the question: he existed even before the foundation of [[Tymanchebar]], that the 4e FRCG states it happened "around two centuries before the Spellplague" (so, we know the Kepeshkmolik bloodline has existed for more than three hundred years, as Thymara was a survivor of the Spellplague...)

The point is that we do not have an accurate "reckoning" system for Abeir. That's why I was asking if I should use the Dalereckoning (that was used by Ed and Bruce R. Cordell in the article about Gontal).
