Calendar of Gaia

Post by Novil » 25 Sep 2011, 19:01

A year on Gaia consists of 12 months = 360 days.
A month consists of 6 weeks = 30 days.
A week consists of 5 days.

The months have the following names:

1. Iceclaw | Eiskrall
2. Crystalis | Kristalis
3. Trios | Trios
4. Greenbring | Grünbring
5. Lifespring | Neuseel
6. Flowerall | Allblum
7. Highsun | Hochsonn
8. Suntide | Sonnflut
9. Harvestar | Ernting
10. Leaffall | Laubfall
11. Fogging | Nebelung
12. Deepnight | Tiefnacht

The weekdays have the following names, but they’re rarely used:

1. Arathorday | Arathortag
2. Larinorday | Larinortag
3. Bilburday | Bilburtag
4. Gaiaday | Gaiatag
5. Freeday | Freitag

Every name might change until it’s actually used in the comic.

Sounds very fantastic, even thou it's just simple version of our own calendar.

I am guessing that there are four seasons like we have and they appear in the same way also. The naming of the months are nice, I like them.
The only thing I think this calendar is lacking are the solstices and equinoxes, in the world full of magic they could have important role. But if it is a simple version of our calendar then they won't simple appear here.

The bad thing are the weekdays names. Sound strange, that perhaps is the reason they are not used so much. I would advise the idea from the series of games Might and Magic (RPG), they used simple thing: Firstday, secondday, thirdday, fourthday and Fifthday (up to Tenthday). That would sound exotic and more natural.

Still thou, it's okay :]
