Time

Time in Arlamus is measured in years, which are 365 days, with 9 months of 40 days each. There are 8 days in a week, and 5 weeks in a month. The original calendar system (known as the Bodemvan calendar) was developed by the Bodemvos empire in the early 11th age. It was more eratic and had a slightly flawed measurement for the year (they thought it was 357 days). The current calendar, which is based on the Bodemvan calendar, is used in most of civilized Arlamus, particularly around the sea of Sh’kai-ahi. The months are mostly words from the Bodemvan calendar, though some are newer. It is as follows:

Months: Week days:
1. Moldagen, mid-winter, 41 days (common, Cherranthi dialect) 1. Wakingday
2. Fimistad, late winter to early spring (Bodemvan) 2. Tillingday
3. Imvozac, mid-spring, 41 days (Bodemvan) 3. Milkingday
4. Wudoros, late spring (Bodemvan) 4. Marketday
5. Asiromag, early summer, 41 days (Bodemvan 5. Qwellingday
6. Hrimgaard, late summer (Dwarven, Mordheim dialect) 6. Ravenday
7. Dobaviros, early autumn, 41 days (Bodemvan) 7. Restingday
8. Ottrel, mid-autumn (common, Shoanaldoro dialect) 8. Feastday
9. Qridbhakk, late autumn to early winter, 41 days (supernal, infernal dialect)

The current year is 3 a.r. (after resurgence), meaning it is the 3rd year of the 13th age. Arlamus has had 12 previous ages, beginning with the creation of the universe in the early 1st age. They are as follows:

Tanuiel is the only First God still alive, but their presence is not well known on Arlamus, and they don’t have any worshippers. There have been three series’ of gods, and the current series consists of many of the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of Tanuiel. Tanuiel’s siblings were from the first series, and after they died, Tanuiel went into hiding in the deepest reaches of the universe, where they created the second series. Unfortunately, the second series was made hastily and haphazardly, making the Second Gods weak, deformed, and/or corrupt of soul. These gods stood little chance against the hordes of demons, devils, and other fiends. The Third Gods, however, were made with more care, as Tanuiel stayed in hiding, and had more time to “birthe” them. Thus, the new pantheon easily crushed the fiends, and most of them survived the war, becoming one of the gods worshipped today.
