This is part of a discussion I had on Orcs and Savages in Ultima Online. Here I elaborate on my own theory of character aging and time conversion. It isn't canon but would explain alot of the ... inconsistencies in Ultima Lore. Thoughts? Years occur in Months. Planet Sosaria circles the Britannian Sun once per Earth Month. The axis of Sosaria prompts Winter to come once every Twelve Years. Britannian Peasants would not perceive things as being different from Medieval Earth. We age the same as Earthlings. Astronomers and Mages might be aware of the spin but would not notice it being abnormal unless there is some knowledge of Earth. The Trammel (Silver) Moon follows the same cycles as the Earth Moon (for the ease of RPing New / Full Moon Cycles). The Feluccan (Red) and Dark (Black) Moons are independent of the Silver Moon and can be New / Full at the need of the character. Months can follow the tables used in Dungeons and Dragons. Names are interchangable based on culture. (e.g. New Britannians could be accustomed to the Earth Calendar Names.) January - Hammer - "Deepwinter." February - Alturiak - "The Claw of Winter." March - Ches - "The Claw of the Sunsets." April - Tarsakh - "The Claw of Storms." May - Mirtul - "The Melting." June - Kythorn - "The Time of Flowers." July - Flamerule - "Summertide." August - Elesias - "Highsun." September - Eleint - "The Fading." October - Marpenoth - "The Leaffall." November - Uktar - "The Rotting." December - Nightal - "The Drawing Down."
