[Milieu] Sidereal Year Data-

Prompted by Rob Conley's blog post for today, I have this to add to the Urutskan Database:

There are 46 weeks of 8 days forming one 368 day stellar year.

Every 5,760 days (15.65 years), an additional non-calendar day is added.
--This is known in Vrun as, Avdmurtkal: 'orbital adjustment', and is due to the rotational 'wobble' upon Urutsk' axis.

Avdmurtkal is celebrated in most Northern Hemisphere cultures as a time of omens, and in particular, a time in which new possibilities are ripe for the working. Accordingly, magickal and priestly groups and their adherents often set aside the days prior for fasting and self-discipline so as to enter the new era devoid of the trappings and shortfalls of the prior era.

It is estimated that there have been roughly 2,755 occurrences of Avdmurtkal since the formation of the cosmos, placing the date of the observable cosmos at roughly 43,116 years (as of year 777 New Calendar).

[Milieu][RPG] Still digi-painting...and so forth-

Having first hand-drawn the KB & Environs map and then scanned it, I am finding all sorts of artefacts that need to be tracked down and erased/painted over, as well as re-doing all the location names and data in type layers.
--It's a bit trickier than I had first thought, but by all accounts, it's looking nifty.

Working via the right lobe of my brain is helping to unlock ideas for inclusion in the text.

I'll detail things a bit for you folks:

This product will serve as a grounded entry point to the milieu, and to that end, I am including several stat formats for the bulk of you who dig on the d&ds, while still retaining UWoM statting. This itself is to illustrate the correlation between the two systems, and help acclimatise you folks to more intuitively judge at a glance what future UWoM stat formatting actually means --relative to the d&d-centric point of view. This should allow snappy use of my stuff with your preferred (d&d-esque) game.
--Gala apples to Fujis, so to speak.

Regardless of the timestamp, it is 2:24 AM, and I'm outta' here.
