Years in Aetolia are numbered from the first day since the end of the Creator's Monomachy.

An Aetolian day is approximately 4 real-life hours. The following table represents how long certain time periods are in real life hours:

Aetolian Time                       Real hours
1 day                                  4 hours
1 week                                24 hours
1 month                              100 hours
1 season                             300 hours
1 year                              1200 hours

You can see the current Aetolian date using the DATE command. The calendar for the current Aetolian month can be viewed using the CALENDAR command. You can also add notes to it with the syntaxes outlined in HELP CALENDAR NOTES.

The Aetolian year is divided into 50 weeks of 6 days each. The names of the weekdays are as follows:

1) Closday
2) Tisday
3) Falsday
4) Quensday
5) Kinday
6) Gosday

The year also divides into 12 months, with each month having 25 days in it. As there are 300 days in a year, this means that the cycle of weeks and the cycle of months match every 6 months, with both Sapiarch and Celes 1st falling upon Closdays. The names of the months are as follows:

1) Sapiarch  (mid-winter)
2) Severin   (late winter)
3) Ios       (early spring)
4) Dharos    (mid-spring)
5) Chakros   (late spring)
6) Omeian    (early summer)
7) Celes     (mid-summer)
8) Lleian    (late summer)
9) Ivolnos   (early autumn)
10) Lexadian (mid-autumn)
11) Slyphian (late autumn)
12) Haernos  (early winter)

The four seasons are as follows:
