The World Calendar

Written by Loremaster Aemon

The Calendar of The Realms:

 

The realm calendar consists of 12 months (moons) of 30 days each, divided into 6 days of the week, 1st to 5th workdays, the 6th a day of worship and rest. The months can also be divided into ‘rides’ or ‘ten days’ (10 days long, 3 per month), or into weeks of 6 days (5 weeks per month).

The days remain unnamed, just numbered 1st-6th, 7th-12th, 13th-18th, 19th-24th, 25th-30th.

   

Special days:

 

Each month there are special days, the 1st day of each month has the new moon that evening. There are religious days for the gods and goddesses, feast days during springs dawn, midsummer, and high harvest.

 

The greatest feasts are the days of the year ending and beginning anew, these 2 days are for family, friends and community to remember lost/deceased loved ones.
