Modern Era calendar

A solar-cycle calendar system in use amongst risen naitons which anchors its count to the foundation of the Old Kingdom (year 1). Events following this anchor point are considered to have taken place in the Modern Era (ME), while those which came before represent the Antecedent Era (AE). Although it is not an official range on the timeline, a third “Mythic” era is often referenced in common parlance, encompassing the time of gods and the creation of the races, too distant to place on a timeline; the existence of such an era is disputed. The current year by this calendar’s reckoning is ME882.

The Modern Era calendar is 365.25 days long, reconciled with a beat day every four years. The year is divided into 10 months alternating between 36 and 37 days in length. During beat years, the beat day is appended to the end of the calendar (making the last month 38 days) and is considered a universal sabbath; it is even represented on the calendar as an unnumbered dark square in the grid, and children born on this day celebrate their anniversaries on the day before, even during beat years. Beat days are not considered part of the week and years following a beat day will continue their weekly cycle as if the beat did not take place.

Time is further subdivided into weeks on the Modern Era calendar, each lasting 5 days. The days of this week are inherited from the calendar used by the Ordu Dracoj: Hemja, Mija, Toho, Finja and Rahm.
