Calendar Year of Ra-Theris
The calendar of Ra-Theris has twelve months, each month comprised of four weeks, and each week containing seven weekdays (Sun’s Day, Moon’s Day, Earth’s Day, Wind’s Day, Air’s Day, Fire’s Day, and Star’s Day). At the end of each 3 month long season, there is a one week transitional period into the new season, dedicated to one of the celestial elements (Sun, two of the moons and the stars). There are 365 days in each year.

*Note, certain tribes and religous systems also operate off of the lunar cycles of Volanth and Furia (most do not follow Sin-shar because of its erratic and unnatural pattern of movement).

*Note Average inland temperatures are given for cities along the Serpentine River, where river waters keep the surrounding areas slightly cooler. Temperatures throughout a majority of the desert are typically 10-20 degrees hotter, reaching temperatures as dangerous as 120 degrees at times. Coastal temperatures usually range from 60-75 degrees on average, and mountain temperatures are cooler based on height.
