Actually: there's 13 months per year, 30 days a month(so 628 days). It's in one of the comics somewhere.(I think ours, but I'm not sure)

13 months * 30 days = 390 days.

that means we are at the moment day 86 meaning at 2 months and 26 days at this moment. if we started this game at the beguining of this year in the drow calendar. We kinda need to know each name of each month in the drowish language.

I think Moonsend is the end of the year celebration, so we back track from there. I'll start working on a calender of sorts.

here's my throw in of an idea.

There are 30 symbols, all grouped in three's, sicne we update on a three day turn.

the white rectangles show that there is room to add text.

i thought something rectangular because it would be easy to make into a clay tablet or something.

:3

here's the link to what it looks like WITHOUT the white squares:

Hmmmm... o.O I like. 6 day weeks work well too. 5 weeks too a month is nice and neat... I'm gonna begin working on the calender soon. Starting with the last day of moon's end and working backwards >_>

I wonder if there is an excel like program, or a make your own calender thing... hmmmm...

anybody know where i could get one of those?

edit: erm, albino >.> it's truly amazing, but I wonder if the symbols could be linked by colors to represent the weeks? I think it does for the most part already but I'm not sure...

(order of days as I see it based on white squares)
Week 1=Top middle 2
Week 2=Top Side 2
Week 3=Exact Middle 2
Week 4=Bottom Side 2
Week 5=Bottom Middle 2.

edit: AH! I see, only the Top Middle and Bottom Middle pairs aren't color coordinated for each other rather than could be interpreted as weeks :3

Okay, I like it, but what if we slow down to a one day turn one day? Would there be a way to keep it from throwing things off? Also, would events, say new moon, be written on the calendar itself or as a foot note underneath?




Also, on a personal note, 100 posts w00t!!! :D
