The Timekeeping System

Post by Daisyleap on Mon Sep 28, 2015 7:35 pm

This is a new thing we do at Blazing Tails.
Are you confused about the way we measure time here? Admittedly, it is pretty complicated. Once you understand it, it'll be easy to make sense of.


Here at BTGF, time is constantly moving forward. This means that cats continue to be born and die. However, we measure time in chunks called moons.
You may be wondering, "Isn't that a month?" The answer is, put simply, no. 
A moon here is defined as the time from one new moon until the next, with the full moon being right in the middle. Most years, there are 12 moons, but occasionally there are 13. So a cat that is a year old may actually be listed as 13 moons depending on the year. 
We use actual moon data here, so if you're confused as to what the human dates for the moons are you can look them up anywhere online. (I find this site to be particularly helpful.)


As for the names of the moons, since we can't call them by the names of the months, we use the Native American Moon Names. These are the names for the full moon of that month, so we use them for the moon surrounding that full moon.


January - The Wolf Moon
February - The Snow Moon
March - The Worm Moon
April - The Pink Moon
May - The Flower Moon
June - The Strawberry Moon 
July - The Buck Moon
August - The Sturgeon Moon
September - The Harvest Moon
October - The Hunter's Moon
November - The Beaver Moon
December - The Cold Moon

If there is an extra moon that year, it will be called The Blue Moon, wherever it falls. 

We use roughly two real-time months to equal one in-game moon. If we find a different pace works better, we'll change it, but for now this is the speed things move at.

Hopefully this has helped you understand our timekeeping system and if you have any questions don't hesitate to PM an admin!

Ok, so like each month as a name? And also so at the end of October, it will be the next mont. Ok, I think I get this. It is pretty straight forward, but do you want us, when saying month the cat was born, to say the moon name?

~If we shadows have offended,
Think that you but slumbered here
As these visions did appear. 
And as I am an honest Puck,
Goodnight unto you all.
-Shakespeare

~My pelt is of a Dappled sort,
My eyes as green as leaves.
You honor me with all your heart
As my voice lifts my chior (choir) wings.
I look down upon you all,
You look back up to me.
My heart is full of separate sensations,
I am Honorchior 
I am Dappledleaf .
