They're 10 days long and they're referred to as Decals. Or so it says in their entry.

Lazy, or discouraged?

Maybe both. I was more lazy than anything else, to be honest.

Well most people seem disenfranchised to me and I've been warning about stagnation for some time now.

Okay so obligitory excuse for me: everyone goes off for the summer ot have vacations, me I have to work. Add to this stress and the ever continuing search to find a woman and I was lucky to keep up with the topics this summer. @_@ Haven't even had enough time to write my own ideas, let alone flesh out the calendar.

Now for the day names? As we know the days of our week in most countries around the world I think, flying by the seat of my pants here, go by the ye olden Asgardians. Or better known as the Norse gods. Let's do a search and see! No! My English class was quite wrong! 8PO Says orignoanlly they were named after planets....Hmm planets....Well Felarya has a series of worlds, a few with reoccuring names but not much in Astrology has been covered, boo Lesona is a terrible leader, but to be fair? We have 10. We're not even 100% sure in our own Solar System that we have nine since Planet X/Nabiru keeps being shy right! But! He's a fun twist of fate! Those planets in our Solar system? Are named after Greek gods. Where there's quite a pantheon to chose from and easy to make comparisons and look-like things.

Okay I threw out a bunch of data there without actually saying anything xD But to sum up:
Ten names, ten worlds or gods. <.< Or...and this is just my rnadom wild card up the sleeve, but how about one for each predator species? *Shrugs* Whatever. I hope that helps.

Except that we used gods already for the month names. It'd feel weird to make them day names as well?

Yeah I wondered about that one. Well that leaves predator species and planets/worlds.

Planets might be tricky, especially because of the ever-changing sky. That leaves the predatory species, although why exactly would they name days after man-eating monsters would be up to the minds of the audience. My suggestion would be that they name the days after historical figures.

(I don't know why, but there seems to be more guest users than registered ones.)

What about regions of the Elven Empire? Subdivide the old Elven Empire into an arbitrary number of provinces and name each day after a province.

Well Jedi, I don't know what came first, the egg or the chicken, but my guess is they named both the days and the planets after gods, and your teacher didn't really know what to say to make the class seem interesting XD

Doing a bit of research, it seems Romans named the months mostly with ordinals in the order they were in their calendar. Later, some of them were changed to a few minor gods and what not. Two big rulers even changed a month to be called after them. So going with that, and since we already made it backwards with the Felaryan month names (real world days are named after gods but it's the Felaryan months the ones that are), we could name the days after important Elven rulers and minor deities, then just give numbers to the remaining ones.

Might work though I hesitated to try that one cause of Karbo's not having finished the historical figures currently known even months and months after making their pages. I mean you have names but we know little of the lore behind them, which would be needed to spice up the page and determine what each day represented. Hmm that also makes me wonder. If a week is 10 days long does that mean there's two "Sundays" or more? o.O Might be hard to sympathize with Negav's work scheadule if they can have more days off than their typical planet dwelling cousins! XD
