A year on Scarn consists of 400 days. In the current and most common AV (
)calendar, it is divided into 16 months, each honoring two aspects of the eight divinities. Eachmonth has 25 days, two weeks of eight days and one week of nine.The days are: Corday, Madraday, Taniday, Hedraday, Wildday, Charday, Belsaday and Vanday.The final week of each month holds the extra day of Denday, sometimes called Landsday, tohonor Denev.
Scarn has two moons, but only one is granted a name. The orb called Belsameth’s moon passes through a full cycle every 25 days, and it is said thatManawe, goddess of the seas, commands the ocean tides to rise and fall in honor of her half-sister.The second moon is called the nameless Orb or the Grey Moon when it is called anything. Corean decreed that the moon should not be named or mentioned, and across Ghelspad it is considered a symbol of death and ill omen. Its cycle is four months plus one day. Every six and one-quarter years the two moons are full onthe same night, widely considered to be a time of catastrophic events, horror and disaster. On such nights, the commoners of Ghelspad pray behind locked doors,and even the brave and wise feel a deep sense of unease and fear.
