Calendar

In the world of Founder’s Reach, a year consists of 364 days, split up into 52 7-day weeks. There are 4 seasons (winter, spring, summer, autumn). Each season starts with a week-long festival, followed by 3 months of 4 weeks each. The months and festivals are:

Month Name Season
Needfest Winter
1 Fireseek
2 Readying
3 Coldeven
Growfest Spring
4 Planting
5 Flocktime
6 Wealsun
Richfest Summer
7 Reaping

9 Harvester

10 Patchwall

The current year is 1495 GR (Great Reckoning, years since the fall of the Great Kingdom).

Because the days per year is divisible by the days per week, the days of the week occur on the same day of each month:

  • Sunday is always on the 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd of the month.
  • Moonday is always on the 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd of the month.
  • Toilday is always on the 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th of the month.
  • Waterday is always on the 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th of the month.
  • Treeday is always on the 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th of the month.
  • Fireday is always on the 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th of the month.
  • Starday is always on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th of the month.

The lunar cycle is exactly 26 days long. Therefore, there is always a full moon on the Moonday of Needfest and Richfest, and a new moon on the Moonday of Growfest and Brewfest. The full list of the year’s full & new moons are:
