Altaran Timekeeping Conventions

Conventions regarding the naming of days, months, and years were solidified in the first few years of the Altaran Empire. They were spread to Tearn and northern Marak with the Empire’s expansion. They are the most generally used conventions in the Circle Sea area.

Days of the Week

Weeks are made up of seven days: Solis, Lunae, Martis, Mercuri, Taris, Veneris, and Saturni.


Years consist of twelve months: Premius, Secondus, Tertius, Quartus, Quintilis, Sextilis, September, October, November, December, Undecember, and Duodecember.

Local Exceptions

Some localities use slightly different names, sometimes naming a month or day after a local hero or figure of legend.
