Calendar (based off Dominic's)

Postby FlamingObsidian » Thu Mar 30, 2017 10:34 am

I use the same elements and animals as he does here, but refer to days, months, and years in special ways. Years will start with sike pi and end with the calendrical year. I am using the third system of years here, so the years will be:
2017: sike pi kasi mani
2018: sike pi akesi seli
2019: sike pi waso sona
2020: sike pi soweli suwi
2021: sike pi jan telo
2022: sike pi pipi unpa
2023: sike pi kala utala
2024: sike pi kasi wawa
2025: sike pi akesi jaki
2026: sike pi waso ko
2027: sike pi soweli kon
The days of the week use the animal cycle, and are referred to as suno. So we have:
Monday: suno pipi
Tuesday: suno kala
Wednesday: suno kasi
Thursday: suno akesi
Friday: suno waso
Saturday: suno soweli
Sunday: suno jan
The months use the element cycle, and are referred to as mun. So we have:
January: mun jaki
February: mun ko
March: mun kon
April: mun ma
May: mun mani
June: mun seli
July: mun sona
August: mun suwi
September: mun telo
October: mun unpa
November: mun utala
December: mun wawa

Also, I coded a year calculator for this system:

A reasonable adaptation of Mayan and Chinese precedents, but I still prefer actual numbers.
