Who Are We?

Welcome to Aurora Sky! We are a Sword and Sorcery roleplay. Check out the area above this box if you're interested in making a character, and check out the cbox below if you have any questions! Hope to RP with you soon!






The Sun Calendar
The Sun Calendar, developed by the people of Outer Verto, is currently used as the standard throughout Avarka. The major competing calendar is the Anepta (Lunar) Calendar, which has traditionally been used by religious leaders and major political figures of Kuanepi. For ease of understanding, the timeline below uses the dates of the Sun (solar) Calendar, a 13 month calendar wherein each month consists of 28 days plus 1 additional day-ish period of celebration between each 13-month cycle.
OOC Note: Yes, the Sun Calendar almost the same as the real-world International Fixed Calendar, which means an Avarka year is ~365 days. Avarka has no leap years, as the new year celebration period is a little longer than 24 hours.

Current Date: Spring 516
