The Imperial Calendar

The Imperial calendar is based on the calendar of old Nerath.

It centres around the seasons, with the year consisting of 12 months, each made up of 4 weeks of 7 days, as well as 4 annual week-long festivals to mark the beginning of each season for a total of 52 weeks.

The month of Wealsun
Richfest
The month of Reaping

The days in a week are named:
Starday
Sunday

In everyday use dates are simply given as “day of month”.
For example “the fifth of Readying” or “Wealsun the eighteenth”.

However in scholarly use it is more common to use “day of week of month”.
For example “Godsday of the third week of Flocktime”.


Years are counted in “Imperial Reckoning” or “IR”, with year 0 being appointed as the Stormstrider line’s founding of Arenvale.
