There are three major Calendar Systems in Uphelios, each used by a different faith. All countries that list said faith as their major Religion use the corresponding calender system. Please note that the Pagan nations each have their own individual calender systems, usually based off some form of cycle, whether lunar, elemental, seasonal or constellation-based.

Kúklos tôn OuranônEdit

The Kúklos, of Cycle of the Heavens, is the Calendar System of the Moth-on-High faith. It is based on the Zodiac, and the idea that each age of the Heavens lasts 2000 years, wherein the Calendar year contains 13 months based on the 13 zodiac signs of the equatorial belt of the sky. Like the cycle of the months throughout the year, these Heaven Cycles follow the same order:

MonthsEdit

The Months within a single year of the Kúklos are 28 days long (with the exception of Ethenim, which has 29) and begin with the beginning of Spring:

Nisan, Ziv, Sivan (make up spring)

Tammuz, Av, Elul (make up Summer)

Ethanim (make up The Hollow. This is a sacred point in the middle of the year which is meant to be a time of prayer and assessment, as it is halfway through the year, a time of transition and balance)

Bul, Kislev, Tevet (makes up the Autumn)

Shevat, Adar, Aviv (makes up Winter)

Current YearEdit

Currently in the story of Weaponry, it is Year 1998 of Kúklos tou Drákou (1998K.Dra.), nearing the culmination of everything the cycle stands for and preparing to transition into the next Cycle. The story began on Nisan 2nd.

Ano DominiEdit

The Ano Domini (Year of our Lord) is the Calendar system used by the followers of the Holy Cross Faith. It is centred around a Solar Calendar of 365 days, which are broken up into a series of months named for the different Popes of the Holy See. The numbers of days (and indeed of practised months) changes from the reign of one Pope to the next, but generally, they begin their calendar year with the beginning of Winter, rather than spring. For a sense of comparison, included in brackets are the current equivalents with the Kúklos calendar.

MonthsEdit

Pius (Shevat) - current day count: 31 (This was the Pope that prevented new Popes from changing the names of the months to include themselves in the roster, for the sake of clerical integrity; ironically, he made this law after renaming 'Alexander' to 'Pius'. Pius was the 33rd Pope to Rule the Holy See)

Celesti (Adar) - current day count: 24 (Celesti was the 14th Pope)

Pacifer (Aviv) - current day count: 28 (Pacifer was the 25th Pope)

Benedictus (Nisan) - current day count: 28 (Benedictus was the 3rd Pope)

Lenita (Ziv) - current day count: 21 (Lenita was the 15th Pope)

Castus (Sivan) - current day count: 29 (Castus was the 1st Pope to rule, and is sometimes called Pater Sancte, or Holy Father, for his establishment of the church)

Constanti (Tammuz) - current day count: 30 (Constanti was the 2nd Pope to rule, and was one of the founding members of the Holy Cross faith)

Lucius (Av) - current day count: 29 (Lucius was the 5th Pope)

Felix (Elul) - current day count: 30 (Felix was the 29th Pope)

Liberius (Ethanim) - current day count: 29 (Liberius was the 30th Pope, and one of the bloodiest popes in the church's history to date. Known as the establisher of the Templars, Liberius reigned during the rise of the Cabal Angels and largely tried to eradicate them. At times Liberius was cut from the calendar, at other times given more days)

Callastus (Bul) - current day count: 28 (Callastus was the 21st Pope)

Victoriam (Kislev) - current day count: 30 (Victoriam was the 32nd Pope, and carried on the work of Liberius as he was a Templar who ascended the ranks of the church)

Honori (Tevet) - current day count: 28 (At times Honori was cut from the calendar, at other times given fewer days)

Current YearEdit

It is Year 1738 Ano Domini according to the Ano Domini system, (depicted as 1738A.D.). The story began on Benedictus 4th (but note that Blade counts his diary in the Kúklos calendar as that is what is used in Weaponry Academy).

There have been 63 Popes thus far, and their years date from the first year that a Pope was installed in Sanctua. The current leader of the Holy Cross church is Pope Liberius IV and many historians believe that the choice of carrying on the name of such a controversial pope is a direct declaration of war against the Cabalist and Mother-on-High beleives alike. True to tradition, Liberius IV has increased funding and autonomy for the Templars, perhaps because he is a Laoslander and so hails from the country that birthed their organization.


There are three major Calendar Systems in Uphelios, each used by a different faith. All countries that list said faith as their major Religion use the corresponding calender system. Please note that the Pagan nations each have their own individual calender systems, usually based off some form of cycle, whether lunar, elemental, seasonal or constellation-based.

Peygamber YılıEdit

The Peygamber Yılı (Year of the Prophet) is the newest of the calendar systems and dates from the first compilation of the holy scriptures of the Cabalists: The Cabal Codex. The Prophet Sharyar finished compiling the original Codex 683 years ago, and thus started their calendar.

Their month system is lunar based, but specifically follows each phase of each moon. It begins on the Spring Equinox and continues through the moon cycles from there.

Each complete moon cycle is grouped together to create one month, with each phase being sacred to one of the Cabal Angels, and the Angels are grouped together based on their virtues. The groupings begin with Waxing Crescent, Full Moon, Waning Crescent and New Moon (in a sense, each of these phases is termed one week, with the half and gibbous phases completing the days around the focal phase, which takes the central day of the week, the 'day of rest').
