As teh last year of the twentieth century wore on, the comet swelled until the night was altogether banished from the streets of Mordheim.

It was not Sigmar but his judgment that fell upon the city of Mordheim on the first moment of the first day of the new era.
First day of 2000... January? Smile

From www.warhammeralliance.com/forums

Quote :
Whilst writing a small character timeline, I did some googling for the Warhammer calendar, and found out some interesting stuff I didnít know before; like our world, the Warhammer Imperial calendar has 12 months, but after that the similarities end;

ē Warhammerís months are 32 or 33 days long each
ē As well as this, there are 6 holy days that exist outside the months
ē Combined, this means the Warhammer world year is 400 days long
ē To confound the differences, the Warhammer week is 8 days long

(If anyone is interested, Iíve included the days of the week and months of the year at the bottom of the post)

Now this raises an important question; how is the Warhammer timeline going to fit into ours? Mythic have already stated Christmas quests will be present (lets hope they donít sell out with other holidays like Valentines day, like WoW did. Erg.), so the way I see its there are several solutions;

1. Ignore dates altogether, and make the years a non-issue, and hold things parallel to our world
2. Change the fluff to make the Warhammer world year 356 days long
3. Make each day 22 hours long, which roughly evens it out so that the Warhammer world year is the same number of hours as ours (8760)

I think most people would agree that 3 is the most logical choice (I assume the number of hours in a Warhammer day has never been mentioned), but doesnít that pose the problem of screwing up the day/night cycle, which I swear was in WoW so that its players would know when its dark outsideÖ?

For those who are interested, here are the days and months. Please note that these are a direct copy and paste, but Iíve forgotten the URL I got them from.

Days

Wellentag
Aubentag
Marktag
Backertag
Bezahltag
Konigstag
Angestag
Festag (Day of Rest)

Months and Holy Days

Hexenstag (Witching Day - start of new year. Hexensnacht is one of only two nights when both Morrslieb and Mannslieb are full)
Nachhexen (After-witching; 32 days long. The 17th of Nachexen is the first day of spring, and one of three major holy days for the Church of Ulric)
Jarhdrung (Year-turn; 33 days long)
Mitterfruhl (Spring Equinox)
Pflugzeit (Plough-tide; 33 days long)
Sigmarzeit (Sigmar-tide; 33 days long. The 18th of Sigmarzeit is the first day of summer, and also the primary holy day of the Sigmarite Church, commemorating the crowning of Sigmar as Emperor)
Sommerzeit (Summer-tide; 33 days long)
Sonnstille (Summer Solstice)
Vorgeheim (Fore-mystery; 33 days long)
Geheimnistag (Day of Mystery; Geheimnisnacht, like Hexensnacht is one of only two nights when both Morrslieb and Mannslieb are full)
Nachgeheim (After-mystery; 32 days long. The 17th of Nachgeheim is the first day of autumn)
Erntezeit (Harvest-tide; 33 days long)
Mittherbst (Autumn Equinox)
Brauzeit (Brew-tide or Brew-month; 33 days long)
Kaldezeit (Chill-tide; 33 days long. The 18th of Kaldezeit is the first day of winter, and one of three major holy days for the Church of Ulric)
Ulriczeit (Ulric's-tide; 33 days long)
Mondstille (Winter Solstice - this is one of three major holy days for the church of Ulric)
Vorhexen (Fore-Witching; 33 days long)
Very Happy

Oh my God... this games-workshop-imperial-pseudo-german gives me a headache Very Happy

It is actually painful for me to read words like "Jahrdrung" and "Nachhexen" lol!

But anyway, thanks for posting WBK. I tried to reply earlier, and googled for the calendar, but couldn't find anything. Good job! Wink

Maybe this is helpful too, it's from WFRP:

This is an easier to read version as a .pdf

http://www.davesgames.net/wfrp2/pdf/calendar-shorthand-alt.pdf

the creator of that pdf has also some more calenders:
