Days of the week:
Korpesh has a 10 day week (firstday, secondday, thirdday, fourthday, marketday, sixthday, seventhday, eigthday, ninthday and lastday). Lastday and Marketday are both days of ‘rest’ (and market days, to be extra confusing), but lastday tends to be a day of rest and have more of a festival feel than marketday, which has more of a business-like feel (and more people work it).
there are 36 weeks in a year, divided up into 9 4-week months, with a 5 day “year end” festival, for a total of 365 (to keep some things simpler). Please note that this is only Korpesh, other countries may construct their calanders differently. Seasons are roughly the same as earth, though Korpesh has temperatures are overall slightly cooler, with less precipitation and has a longer summer season. Days are 24 hours long, and minutes and seconds are the same to keep me from having to do any more math…
1- Devit: The month of Trials. Named in honor of Devlin. While the weather is much better than Aratis, this month has historically seen enough difficulties to earn the moniker the month of trials. Widespread superstition holds that this is where the Gods judge those that have offended them, and send their reckoning to deal with them. Snow is not uncommon and lack of food can sometimes be an issue. this is the second month of Winter
