Age of the Dragons
The Lunar Cycle
The skies of this world house 2 moons – Maveris and Ghael. Each moves around the world at its own speed, but they set the pace for a fairly simple calender. The first, Maveris, is full every 31st day. The other, Ghael, is only full once every 45. This cycle culminates once a year, when both moons align to mark the beginning of the new year.
A week in this world is known as the Tenday – Restday, Maveraday, Aquaday, Zephyday, Ghaelday, Terraday, Firaday, Feastday, Sunday, and Tenday.
Each month contains 3 of these weeks, save for Corospyr which has 4.The 10 months of the year are as follows:
Days are 28 hours long, making a full year on this world equivalent to 11 1/2 months on Earth.

We are currently in the year 479 of the Fifth Age (Age of the Dragons).
