Atlea and Beyond
The Calendar system in Atlea is almost universal, with a few outlying regions using traditional calendars. It is a holdover from the time of the great empires that spanned the globe that had such communication that they came to a compromise on measuring time.
Each month is made up of approximately 100 days, and there are four months per year:
-Firstmonth (Summer, also known as Pelorquarter)
-Secondmonth(Harvest, Autumn, also known as Sehaninequarter)
-Thirdmonth (Winter, also known as Ravenquarter, known in the early fourth age as Khalaquarter)
-Fourthmonth(Seeding, Spring, also known as Corellonquarter)
These correspond appromixately to the seasonal changes. In the Atlean world, a year is actually 400 days, and creatures of this world age at this rate of one year per 400 days. Atlea’s moon makes a complete cycle once every 100 days.
The days are referred to by their number and in the month they are in, eg. sixtiethday in thirdmonth.
The current year in Atlea is 1480.
