The Oblivian Calendar

The calendar used in Oblivia is basic, but functional. There are eleven 31 day months. The nobility have a use for weeks for planning, but most adventurers and nearly all common-folk don’t see the need. Simply saying ‘come back in seven days’ is enough in a land where basic math is a religious virtue.

The seasons are also straightforward, will little deviation from year to year.
Months 1-3 are winter, 4-5 are spring, 6-9 are summer, and 10-11 are fall.
There are many religious beliefs on why each the seasons are differently lengths, from divine favor to divine punishment.

The year is currently 293-326, hyphenated due to a divide in political sects about when the first year should be. The first believe it should be when Odenassius first set foot in this land, while the second believes it should start when Lord Adelbarthus discovered that toast doesn’t always fall butter side down. Yes, really. This divide is asinine, but many of the elite argue over it, and the common man just chooses to use both years to avoid confusion. It is believed that the ‘Adelbarthites’ are just trying to piss off the ‘True Yearists’, and the latter are too stuck up to realize it.
