Ropla

Ropla is a small world with 2 twin planets, Ropla and Spawn, circulating each other at close proximity. The pair is moving around a sun at the center of the world, and has 2 moons circling both planets. The outer shell of the world contains patterns of lights, casting a bit of light on the planets, even when turned away from the sun. The darkest area, known as the dark zone, is the part where the planets are closest to each other, and each planet is casting shadows from the world night light onto each other.  

Time and History

The calendar of Ropla is based on the percieved movements of Spawn, the 2 moons and sun on the skies. Days are marked by the turning of the planet, the coming and goings of sunlight. Months are based on the movement of the moves. Years are based on the movement of the dark zone around planet Ropla, and eras are based on the rotation of both twin planets around each other. *link to Ropla major timeline*
