Salical Reckoning

Like our own Earth, Willowcrest has years that last 365 1/4 days, however the scholars have divided the year into 13 months of 28 days (4 weeks) each. This leaves 1 intercalary day each year or 2 every fourth year. The years are counted from when King Salice I united Willowcrest under his rule.

Days and Weeks

The days of the week are Kingday, Lockday, Bowlday, Soulday, Hornday, Tomeday, Pathday. Since every month has four weeks, they are often named for the typical phase on the moon observered: High, Falling, Low, Rising. This has led many simple folk to avoid using the numerical day of the month in favor of combining the two sets. For examples, the 1st of the month is always High Kingday, the 10th is always Falling Bowlday, and the 20th is always Low Tomeday.
