The calendar of Adylheim consists of 12 months to every year. Each month takes up a total of 35 days. There are 5 weeks to every month and thus 7 days to the week. There are also four seasons; winter, spring, summer and autumn. Finally, timekeeping in Adylheim is also split into eras. Eras are a much more subtle concept than a year or a season and are not determined by anything as simple as the passing of time. Eras are often guided by the hands of prophecy, with each era taking on one of the five elements. Eras have no specific length but end when the spirit which gives it power has been exhausted.
