    Yeah, I think the decision to make Greyspace a geocentric system created more problems than the novelty of it was worth. It really complicates how the moon phases play out, for one.

    I think I see where you're absolutely right, Rasgon.
    Somehow, in my brain, I think it's the distinction of saying "month" is connotating a number of days on the calendar, not a cycle depending on wh ...

    The lunar calendar is different, since Luna doesn't skip the festival weeks. There are 13 lunar months in a year (364/28=13), so it would be more of a Baker's Dozenmonth. Hmm. Fair enough.
    But, that ...
