Friends and fellows. Due to recent (amazing!) reasoning by scholars of the Astronomagical Society, we are pleased to announce that we have added the five hidden days to our calendar year! That's five extra days we've recognized for you to advance your work before the annual review. Gifts and gratitude are unnecessary. We merely acknowledged them officially; we did not create them. May all your projects be almost as successful as ours.
The Mouvelian calendar (named after Grand Patriarch Mouvel, the first high priest of the Church of Dwayna) begins counting years from the moment the gods left Tyria. This event is known as the Exodus. Years before this date are labeled BE (Before the Exodus). Years after this date are AE (After the Exodus). Years prior to the year 1 BE count down, getting smaller as they get closer to the time of the Exodus (just as they do in the Gregorian calendar).
There are 4 seasons and 365 days in the Mouvelian year:
|Season of the Zephyr||Spring||Air||1-90|
|Season of the Phoenix||Summer||Fire||91-180|
|Season of the Scion||Autumn||Water||181-270|
|Season of the Colossus||Winter||Earth||271-365|
The current date is 40 Season of the Zephyr 1329 AE.
