Calendar

The Sun and Moon of Visola

Wheel of the YearThe Visolan Calendar is largely based off IRL seasons. We have 12 months a year, 3 weeks a month, and 12 days in a week which equals 432 days a year. It has strong numerology influence with 12, 4, and 3 (all multiples of 12), also the sacred number for our game (hence the 12 pointed star in our logo).

Our months and days follow the same deity influences, and are the basis for our zodiac (stat generation) system during character creation. We’ve attempted to match the deities with the months based off the IRL seasonal calendar so that players are able to identify with the seasons easier. Such as Anari being the Month of Storms, the equivalent to April (“April showers bring May flowers”). Which also explains why Ereleia is the month of the Muse and the Goddess of Beauty, the equivalent of May flowers and all the beauty and lushness that comes with May. Though days do not have helpfiles, since their theme is the same as the months, you can view a description of each month by typing: help <month name>
