Crossing the Penumbra
For reasons of gameplay and mathematical simplicity, we use the Gregorian calendar with the month names changed.
DaysThere are seven days in the week. They are named after the gods considered the most important to society. They are as follows:
Pela – Sunday, named for Pelor. This is a day of rest, or at least of minimal work. You should take time to appreciate life on Pela.
Avana – Monday, named for Avandra. This is the day that work in a new week is expected to begin. Avana is a good day to begin a change.
Bhama – Tuesday, named for Bahamut.
Eratha – Wednesday, named for Erathis. This is traditionally the day given to service to a lord, if it is due.
Mayla – Thursday, named for Melora. It is considered the most auspicious day to launch any journey by boat or through wilderness.
S’hana – Friday (pronounced sa hana), named for Sehanine. This is the autumn of the week. It is a day of mirth and quiet reflection, depending on season and mood.
Ravna – Saturday, named for the Raven Queen. This is the end of the week. It is the day that funerals are held. Weddings, birth-name ceremonies, etc. are never held on Ravna.
