A date would generally be written in a form similar to "...on the 23rd day of Resplendent Air, RY 764" or "...23 Resplendent Air, RY 763", or somewhere in-between. The month always precedes the season (Resplendent Air, not Air Resplendent). You could probably shorten the month (eg, R.Air or Resp.Air), but the canon material doesn't get that deep into the calendar; similarly, there's no canon information on a fully numeric depiction of the date. There are two conflicting presentations of the seasons. The first I'm not a fan of, as it goes from the hottest month of the year (Descending Fire) to the coldest month of the year (Ascending Air) over the course of five days (Calibration). Considering the weather is entirely controlled by gods and elementals it's not impossible within the setting, but going from high summer to dead winter just doesn't sit right with me. The version I prefer has summer starting 1 R.Fire, autumn at 15 A.Air, winter at 1 D.Air, and spring at 1 D.Earth. The second version provides a much more gradual change from summer to winter, and puts Calibration at the tail end of summer rather than making it the shortest autumn ever. This seems appropriate to me: Calibration is the only time during the year when third circle demons (the most powerful type of demon) can be summoned, and a summoned demon crosses through Cecelyne, the Endless Desert to reach Creation. (Yu-Shan, the city of Heaven, also holds the biggest party in the world on the 3rd day of Calibration, initially held specifically so that powerful sorcerers would attend a party and not summon third circle demons.) There are other calendars in the game (notably the Calendar of Setesh in the Underworld, and people in the First Age would have definitely been using a year-numbering system other than "Realm Year", since the Realm did not exist yet), but they have even less detail. Of course, the Calendar of Setesh isn't simply a date-numbering system; it's also a machine that makes the Underworld's version of the sun and moon move across the sky.
