Calendar

Although the Pathfinder Rulebooks have a handy campaign setting guide, the following are easier for me as a GM to remember off the top of my own head.

(H is for High Days usually to do with clothing, others are considered Low Days for both religious and marketing purposes.)

MendDay (H)
FoolsDay – Also known as FreeDay in some cities.
WashDay (H)
WoodsDay (aka WodeDay/BlueDay or WoolDay) – Sometimes used as an extra High Day depending on the season.
Oathday – Usually a good day to make business deals or oaths.
’TiringDay (H) – Short for “Attiring” this Day is typically the end of the working week and is also called TitheDay in some of the more theocratic cities.
Soothday – Some say this should be spelled SootheDay and a day of rest and friendship, the more devout believe it should be used for fasting and prayer.

MendDay’s Clothes (Traditional – credit to Ednoria)

MendDay’s clothes are out of place,
FoolsDay’s clothes are full of lace,
WashDay’s clothes dry far too slow,
WoolsDay’s clothes are good for snow,
OathDay’s clothes are not forgiving,
TitheDay’s clothes work hard for a living,
But the clothes that are worn on SoothingDay
Are silken and soft and smooth and grey.

(Providing yet another insight into Kassenese tradition for wearing grey comfortable clothes on SoothDay; which could either be robes for religious reasons, or lounging around the house in your comfy sweats.)

The “official” calendar is dictated and standardized by the wealthiest city in the known world, but really, that’s only a reference system for scholars and tax collectors. Everybody else just says “years since the Darkwood strike” or “12 summers old” as well as other local colloquialisms. If pressed most people can relate the date to the standard Clock of Absalom which currently reckons by the first year of Adoren bringing the Starstone up from the ocean floor thousands of years ago.

As with most places, locally your Town would have gone from their Founding year and likely reconciles it for scholars by the Clock Calendar. For our purposes as players the local year of reckoning is Kassen 174 (A.E. 4708) when you left during the Spring during the Everflame Festival, by now it would be a week before midsummer during the month of the MeadKeep. Typically you’d probably call the day of the week happening right now as the Fifth of a Sevenday, but if dealing with a merchant you’d know to call it OathDay.
