Calendar

There are two main Calendars in use; the Taymyran Calendar is used in the Sumadjian Kingdom and other lands ruled by Taymyran peoples while the Naral Calendar is used by the various tribes and peoples native to Knin, Kotor, Elbasan, the Beastlands and their surrounding regions.

The calendars share the basic structure of 12 months of 30 days each plus 5 extra days making one year and a bonus day every 4th year. Both also divide months into 3 groups of 10 days each. The similarities strongly suggest a common origin, but the differences are strongly rooted in religious identities which make any investigation into their origins fraught with potential danger.

Shieldmeet is the bonus day added every 4th year according to the Naral Calendar and happens just after Midsummer. The Taymyran Calendar does not accommodate the bonus day until All Saints Day which follows Rememberance, three months later than Shieldmeet. Due to this divergence, every leap year the Taymyran months of Flamerule, Elesias and Eleint are one day ahead of their respective days in the Naral months of Highsun, The Claw of Storms, and Leaffall. Also on leap years the Taymyran celebration of Rememberance is one day before the Naral celebration of HighHarvest Tide, which ends up being observed on the same day as the Taymyran All Saints Day.

In the Taymyran Calendar the days of the week are named after Yenoshite Saints. They are, in order; Dominica, Svoradi, Martedi, Urosi, Giovedi, Casimiri, Libereci, Dillundi, Miluteni and Borisi. Each week of the month is given a number according to its order which is used to distinguish days in different weeks. For example, 1st Dominica is the first day of each month, 2nd Giovedi is the 5th day of the 2nd week, etc.

The Naral Calendar gives the 3 weeks of the month names after the primary deities worshiped in each region, in order of veneration. In the Kotor Valley for example the weeks are named Cuwalen, Panien and Arnaulen. In Elbasan the weeks are named Kanassen, Cuwalen, and Arnaulen. In the Beastlands they are usually named Arnaulen, Uralen, and Panien. Individual days are denoted by their number order in the week. In the Kotor Valley Cuwalen 1 is the 1st day of each month, Panien 5 is the 5th day of the 2nd week, etc.
