The Everscape Calendar

The 384-day year is broken up into four 96-day seasons; Spring, summer, autumn, and winter.   Each season is broken up into three 32-day months. The first month of each season is called "Nigh". For example, the first month of spring is called the Nigh of Spring, or Nighspring. The second month of each season is called "Deep". For example, the second month of summer would is called the Deep of Summer, or Deepsummer. The last month of each season is called "Fade". For example, the last month of autumn is called the Fade of Autumn, or Fadeautumn.   Each month has a First Breath, a Zenith, and a Last Breath. The First Breath of each month is simply the first day of the month. The Zenith of each month is simply the 16th day of the month. The Last Breath of each month is simply the last day of the month.   Each month contains 32 days, which is split up into five 6-day weeks. The first week of each month is called "Wake". For example, the first week of Nighwinter is called the Wake of Nighwinter. The second week of each month is called "Rise". For example, the second week of Deepspring is called the Rise of Deepspring. The third week of each month is called "Bright". For example, the third week of Fadesummer is called the Bright of Fadesummer. The fourth week of each month is called "Fall". For example, the fourth week of Nighautumn is called the Fall of Nighautumn. The last week of each month is called "Tire". For example, the last week of Deepwinter is called the Tire of Deepwinter.   Each full lunar cycle lasts 18 days. If there is one full moon in a month, it is called a Lonely Moon. If there are two full moons in a month, they are called Twin Moons, with the first moon being the First Twin, and the second moon being the Last Twin. If there is a full moon on a First Breath or Last Breath, it is called a Blessed Moon. If there is a new moon on a First Breath or Last Breath, it is called a Cursed Moon. If there is a full moon on a Zenith, it is called a High Moon. As well as this, the full moons are named after the month.   For example, if there is a Lonely Moon in the month of Nighspring that happens to fall on the Zenith of the month, it is known as a Lonely High Nighspring Moon. If there is a Last Twin moon in the month of Deepsummer that happens to fall on the Last Breath of the month, it is known as a Last Twin Blessed Deepsummer Moon.   Each weekday is named after one of the Elder Gods; Edonsday, Reishday, Ordosday, Maesday, Thrakday, and Holtarsday. Edonsday through to Maesday are considered the working days of the week. Thrakday is the free day of merriment, and Holtarsday is the day of winding down and prayer.   So, to conclude; If it's the first day of the second week of the third month of the fourth season of the year, it will be called the Edonsday of the Rise of Fadewinter... got it?
