The Lanjyr calendar is 365 days long, evenly divided into four seasons of 91 days (13 weeks) each, with one extra day to commemorate the new year. Months are a recognized period of time (30 days), but they are not specifically delineated on the calendar, and are not individually named.
Each year begins on New Year’s Day (the following day being Spring 1), and ends on Winter 91. There are no “leap years.”
A Brief History
–1200 B.O.V. (Before Our Victory) King Kelland defeats the fey titans and founds Risur, the first mortal nation. In the following centuries, other nations rise up throughout Lanjyr.
–500 B.O.V. Triegenes the fisherman founds the Clergy in what is modern-day Danor, overthrows the demonocracy in the east, then dies and ascends to godhood.
–50 B.O.V. The First Victory, a holy war between humans and eladrin, ends with the eladrin losing much territory.
1 A.O.V. (After Our Victory) The Second Victory begins as an eladrin effort to reclaim lost lands, but ends in their decisive defeat when the eladrin goddess Srasama manifests physically, and is slain. Danor collapses into chaos as the nation becomes a dead magic zone. The seat of the Clergy moves to Crisillyir, which begins to colonize the devastated lands of Elfaivar. Dwarves seize control of their own nation in Drakr.
