  • Borrowing from the Dwarves, the New Year starts on the day of the Equinox. If needed, additional days are added to Hunger Month to adjust back to the annual cycle.

Interesting notes:
  • DR means Dwarven Reckoning. The library of the Dwarven Codex is said to fill an entire fortress.
  • In the Dwarven calendar, the last month is Moradin’s Month, the commemorate Moradin’s reshaping of the world and setting things to balance again for the new year.
  • In some texts from the Winter Dark, Danzigenuar was called “Stone Freeze”, Moradinuar was called “Stone Reborn”, and Greeting was called “Moradinuar”.
  • Dwarven Months all have exactly 30 days. During New Year’s Feast, additional days are added to restore balance.
  • Most dwarves do not celebrate either solstice.
