Althea runs on a Gregorian calendar system, twelve months for a year, seven days to a week.
Days of the month are as follows:
|Month number||Month (Elvish)||Month (Modern English)|
Days of the Week
|Day Number||Day (Elvish)||Day (Modern English)|
To write a date in this system you start with the day, Month – year (abbr, if necessary).
Example: August 25, Present year.
25, Agosto – 20.
Example: September 10, 50 years ago.
10, Sittembre – 30 (Pmte).
Background on Calendar System
It is unknown how old the planet is, as written history has only been around less than 1000 years, begun by the Elves. The year is currently 20 Immodire, abbreviated (Imde). The Great War of Althea happened in 10 Primete, abbreviated (Pmte). The switch from Primete to Immodire is termed as “Degenete Decentat.”
Within Genedem and Djerak, there are established calendar systems with other means to count months, years, and dates. Humankind adopted the Elvish terms for time markers after writing entered their main culture.
Most of Althea uses all of these terms now, including the Elvish coinages marking before and after the Great War.
