Calendar of Newold

The calendar of Newold is based on the lunar cycle: Each month begins as the full moon rises in a particular constellation. There are about 30 days in each month, with the seasons marked by the solstices and equinoxes:

Spring

  • The Lion
  • The Lady
  • The Balance

Summer

  • The Scorpion
  • The Archer
  • The Goat

Autumn

  • The Urn
  • The Sickle
  • The Ram

Winter

  • The Bull
  • The Twins
  • The Riverman

The full moon’s position drifts relative to the constellations so that every three or so years, an intercalculary month, call Alder, is inserted to “reset” the calendar. The precise time of this reset is established by the Elder Fane in the Callain Empire, and the Empire’s reach is such that most other nations follow suit, if only to avoid bookkeeping problems when trading around the Elenion and Cerianne Seas.
