Calender

The world of Edda has 12 months, most human cultures on Edda believe that time is circular. To people of temperate and northern Varis the year ends in October during the festival of Samhain. From Darkness and death springs life and light.

The Calender is based around the lunar cycles of Edda’s moon which is approximately a 28 day cycle. This 28-day cycle gives each year 336 days. Each month begins with the Full Moon and has a “Light” half and a “Dark” Half, 14 days or a fortnight for each. The first 14 days of the month are the “Dark” half as the full moon wanes. The last 14 days are the “Light” half as the moon waxes.

The months have multiple names between the races but the two names used by humans are: the common names and the names attributed from from the Old World Calender. Most people are unaware of the Old World calender and the meaning of the months on that calender because the language (the “Old Tongue”) has almost completely died out and is used almost solely by scholars in the modern era.
