Calendar of Those Who Know

Table of Contents
This calendar goes back to the time when The Outer Planetoid was still orbiting the system's star. Despite the planetoid now being held in a fixed position, Those Who Know kept the old system for structuring time.

Overview

Structure

Date Units

A year in this calendar is divided into four phases based on the relative distance between the Outer Planetoid and That Which Changes, which used to determine the strength of this species' matter-altering powers.   Those phases have 50 days each, except for the third one which has 55. The days are further grouped into weeks of five days each.
