Saros is a temperate world with an abnormal system of seasons. It takes about 360 days for Saros to complete a revolution around the Sun. Saros experiences the normal seasonal cycle; winter to spring to summer to autumn. However each season on Saros lasts around two and a half solar revolutions. The seasons are governed by the position of Saros moon, Neptal, which has a slow orbit. When Neptal‘s orbit takes it between Saros and the sun is the winter time. When Neptal’s orbit keeps it on the night side and Saros is closer to the sun it is summer time.
The most used calendar, agreed upon by the humans and elves, is known as the Peace Calendar.
The dwarves have their own calendar known as a Runic Calendar.
