Years?

Would the average Joe-Schmoe commoner know what year it was and what Age it is?

I'm also told they're not usually aware of a Year's name. This is true, yes?

Do PCs know these, or are they entirely OOC?

If PCs do know them, how are they made up? Do Tek and Muk meet up for a night of spicing and drinking, whip out a piece of parchment, vial of virgin blood, and a kenku-feather quill, and decide in the morning?

I would say this is a relic from the days of yore, that's why it crosses borders. Nobility would definitely know the names of the years, commoners maybe not so much.

I'd say roleplay it in a way that makes sense. Most commoners probably wouldn't know the specific names, it's a lot of rote memory to know what order they come in.

With appropriate roleplay of course.
