Calendar

The year is divided into 11 months of 32 days each, commonly split into 4 spans of 8 days each. The months match a lunar cycle with the new moon on 32nd/1st and full moon on 16th/17th of each month. They are named for 11 of the 12 recognised gods of the Pantheon, with the 12th, Barthenos, being associated with the two days that do not follow the monthly structure: Full Night, falling between 16th and 17th of Terrun, and Empty Night, falling between 32nd of Errulith and 1st of Gwoyan. These each provide an extra night of full moon and new moon respectively, but are also seen as feasting nights and the dates most commonly associated with tales of curious events and legends.

There are 4 seasons each year, with Empty Night marking Midwinter's Day as well as the start of the New Year, and Full Night being Midsummer's Day. The order of the months is:
