The Primal Calendar

The Primal Calendar of Gællæffa is comprised of 13 Months and one extra day, each month is 28 days in length, and each week is divided into 7 days.

The months of the Primal year:

Godspout, The Time of Rain

Godspout in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with the beginning of March, it is the first month of the year.

It is part of the wet season, as warmer temperatures make their way into the world, and Locd tries to hold his grip on the mortal plane.

Mudett, The Time of Running Earth

Muddet in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with the end of March and continues through most of April, it is the second month of the year.

It is part of the wet season, the winds have settled and the ground is loosened by the warmth of the Sun. It is a month in which the bulk of the planting is done, as the ground is more accessible.

Recrict, The Time of Mirth

Recrict in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with the end of April and continues through mid May, it is the third month of the year.

This is part of the temperate season, when animals mate, plants grow, and a light vibrant green suffuses the world. There is much to appreciate in the month of Recrict, and the world is an open, fast, and exciting place.

Quailhunt, The Time of Plenty

Quailhunt in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with mid May to mid June, it is the fourth month of the year.

This is a part of the temperate season, when birds take to the skies, hunting is good, plants are fruiting, and the vibrant light green starts turning a deeper color as plants grow abound. There's plenty to eat in this month.

Zotul, The Time of Clouds

Zotul in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with mid June and ends in Early July, it is the fifth month of the year.

This is a part of the hot season, as plants begin to wilt in the mid-afternoon, oppressed by the rays up above. The clouds give brief temporary respites from the hot season, and thus this month is named after the highest mountain in Gællæffa, Zotul, who touches the sky.

Ugiel, The Time of Heat

Ugiel in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with the month of July, it is the sixth month of the year.

This is a part of the hot season, the sun has reached its zenith and Reif and Githl beam upon the earth with all their might. The insects lay low, and the brick-makers do the bulk of their work, firing the bricks in the sun. It's a time of construction, and sheltering from the oppressive sun above. It is named after the great brass dragon Ugiel, who's scales shine like blazing suns.

Stoneturn, The Time of Action

Stoneturn in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with the end of July and ends in mid/late August, it is the seventh month of the year.

The end of the hot season rapidly approaches, and there is much work to be done. Farmers have finished their last late-season plantings, the mills begin grinding the grain, and storage begins to prepare for the upcoming cool months, as well as the stormy season.

Allshore, The Time of Grounding

Allshore in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with mid/late August, and early/mid September, it is the eighth month of the year.

The hot seasons winds blow angrily out to see, carrying with them the gifts of Thredün and Tilg'ning. These gifts are largely scorned and cursed by the seafaring and coastal cities, as they are wracked with rain, and wind. This is the season of grounded boats, and all sailors are called to shore.

Frostover, The Time of [[world_info:gods_goddesses:nira|Nira]]'s Escape

Frostover in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with early/mid September, and mid October, it is the ninth month of the year.

The cool seasons have come, as Locd has begun to hunt the mortal plane for his betrothed. The farmers are shoring up their stores for the winter, and the local towns and municipalities are collecting their tithes of grain to hold over society through the season of ice.

Driftsmark, the Time of Snow

Driftsmark in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with Mid October and Mid November, it is the tenth month of the year.

The cool season drifts out, and the cold season blusters in. Nira has once again fallen to Locd's embrace and some say that the frost nipping at your nose is the first true sign of Driftsmark. Others say it's the snow shored up against your door in the early morn. Either way, the cold season is here again, and it's up to the mortal races to bring their own light into the world.

Iridsece, The Time of Festivals

Iridesce in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with Mid November to Early/Mid December, it is the 11th month of the year.

The cold season has draped the mortal planar sphere in ice and frost, light reflects off the snow and into the sky. Despite the sun being blown out of the sky early by the cold every day, the mortal races light their towns with torches, candles, and lanterns. It is truly a beautiful season, and one filled with festivals. The fae are beginning to stir, taking an interest in the parties of mortal beings.

Gwuf, the Time of Vicious Wind

Gwuf in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with Early/Mid December to Mid January, it is the 12th month of the year.

The cold season is fighting tooth and nail to keep its hold on the mortal world, and for now it is winning its fight. The air is dry and the snow does not stick, instead living the air as the vicious winds blow day and night. The month of Gwuf is named after the mighty blue dragon in the frosted northern lands.

Wyrd, the Time of the Fae

Wyrd in the Gregorian Calendar loosely aligns with Mid January and Mid/Late February, it is the 13th month of the year.

The mortal races are beaten and battered into exhaustion by the seemingly never-ending winter, but they have fought valiantly and the cold season is losing its grip on the mortal sphere. The mortal races are tired however, and as such they must pay homage to the fae, for soon the day of the fae king Oajiry will com.

Oajiry, the Day of Patronage

Oajiry is but one day of the year, a “leftover” day stolen from the mortal races. It bridges the time between the cold season and the beginning of the warm season. The story is that Oajiry, lord of the Fae, patron of merriment to the mortal races, is the one being who can scare away Locd, and when the mortal races finally break down and beg him for assistance, paying their dues to their kind patron of merriment, he will smile upon those who his children find fascinating and chase away the cold and dark.
