Chronology

This is some info regarding time in Khalin. It is mostly trivial, but will help distinguish calendar time, what season it is, etc. This will continue to be updated when I get the time.

Khalin’s current calendar was formulated thousands of years ago by ancient scholars whose names have been lost to time. There are ten months in the year, with 24 days in each month, and six days in a week. The calendar was calibrated so accurately that there are no leap days, no extra days in certain months, and no other alterations to the calendar itself.

The six days are named: Pelodai, Sehadai, Avadai, Coredai, Bahadai, and Mordai, in that order. Though these names are still used, the death of the gods has brought about new, primitive names for the days, which are used more and more within tribal bands. Their names for the days are: Sunday, Moonday, Skyday, Seaday, Earthday, and Fireday, though you are more likely to hear “Day of Sun” than “Sunday.”

The ten months are named: Elcor, Iodor, Merkiath, Sopho, Danguin, Tershet, Banai, Lespf, Tagaq, and Shavar. These names are supposedly derived from the first ten tribes of men, specifically the individual men who ruled them.

Here is some random info.

Days are 18 hours long. Khalin is a smaller planet than Earth — Earth is roughly 25,000 miles wide while Khalin is only 19,000 miles. That coupled with it’s speed of rotation, etc etc science stuff means that the day is 18 hours long.

There are 24 days in a month because that is time it takes the lesser moon, Amori, to complete it’s lunar cycle. The larger moon, Farsed, completes its cycle every three months or so. There was an alternate calendar constructed to follow Farsed’s cycle, and it was once used by the dragonborn but has fallen out of favor.

So there’s 240 days in the year.
