The Absolute Count is a system invented in the early Fourth Age by Herbet Patric Galactis as a means of facilitating conversions between the Alliance Calendar and The Lion Calendar. The Absolute Count uses B.G.A. 3800 as a year zero, and counts forward from there. It is somewhat confusing, but helpful to historians. For example, Alliance Year 0 is A.C. 3800. Dates within the A.C. Calendar are difficult to calulate.
