THE ORCAL CALENDAR (OC)

Calendar used in the Goblin Kingdom of Orcal located in the northern parts of the continent of Nybelmar.

The system. The calendar is very special based on years with 260 days and 13 months with 2 weeks in each of them. One week is 10 days, and therefore there are 20 days in a month. The abbrevation "b.O." (before Orcal) indicates the years before Orcals founding of the kingdom, and therefore, the abbrevation "a.O." (after Orcal) indicates the years after that. The year 0 in the Orcal Calendar would be called 1189 b.S. by the Santharians.

Names on days, months. The names of the days, weeks and months get their name from important historical events like the Coming of Gaffel, that resulted in the day name "Gafflday".
