The IC time system, there's a little clock with the IC date on it and it start every time two or more people are online and stops when there is one or none. (Since you cant really be IC by yourself)

And if there isn't already, I'd like to create Day/Month names

In order of occurrence, the days of the week.
Solas
Munas
Tudas
Welas
Turstas
Fritas
Sutas

In order of occurrence, the months of the year.
Januela
Febreka
Marenaya
Aprekiana
Maeka
Junekios
Julekrosis
Augekios
Septon
Octomonas
Novilakas
Decilamatos

And of course the current year.

While I appreciate the effort, I think we should pretty much keep the IRL names for days and months around. I mean, these names aren't very different in themselves, and honestly, it would probably be different for every language anyways. The way I see it, keeping the universal name, since we all speak the same language irl, is just a way to keep things nice and neet, without having to remember a similar name.

Definitely just roll with the real life months and days, I think. Not to discredit any new ideas, it's just a hell of a lot simpler and it feels just a little cheesy to just slap a different ending on the months and days.

The old forum ones sound retarded too, lmao.

BUT, I have to admit those little titles for the months sound pretty good. The Time of Flowers, Summertide and all that. A little bit of tweaking and de-Geowulfing and it'd be an arguable idea. :3

the months and day names dont really matter since we have our real-life one we can use already (like krug said)


but i do think it'd be a good idea to have a holiday list or something? i dont think there's a christmas holiday in aerian lore but if there is there should probably be an explanation (since there isnt jesus / christianity and whatnot in the realm, and that's what christmas is basically represented as )

Holidays really only work when you have one religion, I think. And the traditional pantheon (Tyr, Aten, etc...) feels like so many different types of faith and worship as opposed to the unified worship of the Saints in Occitan, or Shukyinritsu in Kazoshu.

It could work, but it'd be dead complex to write and get them all down. And for one big unified holiday akin to christmas, you'd need a sort of singular main god or something, surely.

Maybe it's just a non-religious holiday? That'd be less of a titanic ball-ache.

also this FUKKEN MUSIC i feel like i can touch jesus

yeah sure, but maybe it should be called something other than christmas? could be just a belated winter-solstice celebration sort of thing

the only other sort of holiday it'd make sense to have would be valentines, as both occitians and sanctimonians ( i think ) have a goddess of love? sune and lora or something


EDIT: sune was a goddess of love an whatever before, not now :Y

LOL, bang on.

A winter festival could work, that'd be wicked. Let's get on that, shouldn't even be too hard to just invent the name and get it added to a nice Sanctimonian overview thread or something.

Solved. :V

Pat and I had this discussion once.

Uh

You don't want to even -begin- working on this lore. This is akin to when I had to write the Origins lore. We have to work on celestial bodies and formations, how they move, why they move, the names of all things and where they come from, and, then the times, dates, and would we still follow 12 months and a year after all that's happened? we wouldn't be working with the same universe's dynamics, after all

so for the time being, we've just let it be because this is a huge mountain to climb if you want some kind of all-encompassing, acceptable and fulfilling answer.

The problem with all the old Olden lore and the reason me, Jacque and Zaku would see it destroyed and redone is because of how overly complex it all is.

What you just said is a prime example of that. I mean, no offence but god damn, it borders the non-sensical and it's bloody offputting for new members and the such when you ramble at them that what they very logically assumed was completely wrong.

Just use conventional days and months. Doesn't matter why or how.

I just saved everyone a lot of time and headache

Non-religious holidays would ease the headache of having 30000000 holidays because each god is a dick and wanted his/her own day to celebrate whatever the fuck.

So just because it's thorough, you want to get rid of it.

k, well, I'm not going to say 'no, shut up, ur wrong,' because complex lore can be hard to understand. Realize that it is not complex for the sake of making your head hurt, but for the sake of answering all possible questions and giving us a means to figure out how things will work.

You wrote something interesting, too. "What they logically assume." Well, logically, you should assume that a fantasy world with magic and manifested deities that regularly interact with people follows an entirely different stream of logic than the world you are used to, because it just doesn't work like ours outside the realm of trade and politics and all that. It's not just magic, either. We have to justify the workings of souls, etc. You see, it's one thing to be presented with something like Discworld and not have to think too hard because you're reading a story. It's another to have the story put into your own hands, and be given all the possible tools necessary to craft it to your liking WHILE maintaining all the rules of the world. So, don't throw out 'illogical,' please. The whole thing has been built upon logic.

Now, as you can see, we are in the Suggestions section. If the three of you can suggest some magic lore that's easier to digest, but still answers all the questions, feel free to make it and post it, and we'll take a look at it.

Also, some stuff we talk about has just not been copied over from the old forums, like the sacred field stuff we also say: "no magic until after puberty." etc.

Fucking get so many squirebucks for mentioning my favorite ever series of literature. Also I'd like to note that Discworld does in fact have a really messed up and deep lore, even (almost especially) when it comes to mundane stuff like time and direction on a worldwide scale. This is all negated by the fact that it's explained, however so it isn't much of an issue with not understanding it.

Finally a day of celebration that I can get behind.



Let's do it.
