The Dark Eye Calendar
Each year in Aventuria lasts 365 days and is divided into 12 months. Each month contains 30 days and is named after one of the Twelfgods in the Aventurian pantheon. That is why years in Aventuria are called divine cycles. The year begins in midsummer with Praios (July) and ends with Rahja (June). The remaining 5-6 days are so called Nameless Days. It is considered a dark omen to be born on the Nameless Day. In earlier TDE editions Aventurians inherited merits of the God under whose sign they were born — similar to our astrological signs.
Weeks in Aventuria have seven days and start on Thursday or Windsday as Aventurians call it. The rest are: Earthday (Friday), Marketday (Saturday), Praiosday (Sunday), Rohalsday (Monday), Fireday (Tuesday) and Waterday (Wednesday). Praiosday in the middle of the week is a day off in many regions of Aventuria. Dwarves, Thorwalers and some other peoples of Aventuria have their own calendars and holidays.
