welcome to knotwood.
Welcome to Knotwood, a medieval fantasy RPG. Two kingdoms who could not be more different from each other have joined by way of the political marriage between King Erikson Ravencrest and Queen Brynn Duskwither. Ravencrest, a near totalitarian society now must loosen its strict rules in order to fit into the more democratic kingdom of Duskwither. Despite this union, the lands of Knotwood are still restless. Not all are pleased with the joining of these two worlds and the people of both countries rest uneasy as rumor persists that Erikson wishes control over both lands completely. In a show of good faith, the two kingdoms agreed to create a joint Fellowship, a shining example of unity, trust and justice. The group consists of the most elite warriors of the kingdom an is led by members of both Royal houses. However, the rivalry between the two countries and their political views places hairline fractures in an otherwise sound group of young individuals. It can be agreed however that both sides want peace and both sides work diligently towards ensuring that. With the ever encroaching threats of rival factions, evil beasts and fantastical creatures of which the people of Knotwood share this land with one thing is assured in that adventure in this vast and amazing land is never lacking.

  Calendar & Time in the RPG

In Knotwood, I'm going by the old Julian Calendar with some modifications to it. Seasons follow much like they do in accordance to time, therefore at this moment its early spring. There are spring showers and the ground is far more muddier than usual. The year in this realm is 784 of the Golden Age.

Here is the full calendar of months and how many days are associated to it in Duskwither:
  • Ianuarius - 29 days
  • Februarius - 29 days but since its a leap year, only 23 days.
  • Intercalaris - 27 days (month inserted only during a leap year)
  • Martius - 31 days
  • Aprilis - 29 days
  • Maius - 31 days
  • Iunius - 29 days
  • Quintilis - 31 days
  • Sextilis - 29 days
  • October - 31 days
  • November - 29 days
  • December - 29 days
The seasons in according to the months goes as follows:
  • Spring: Martius, Aprilis, Maius.
  • Summer: Iunius, Quintilis, Sextilis.
  • Fall: October, November.
  • Winter: December, Ianuarius, Februarius and every four years Intercalaris.
In this RPG we are going to be going by this rule:

1 month in the RPG = 1 month our time. That means you can date stamp your post at any point in the calendar that is listed in the sidebar. When we roll over, you can still post in those threads to complete them, but time moves forward regardless.

At the end of each month, we roll over to the next month in the RPG and so on.
