I made Gregorian Calendar to Mouvelian Calendar conversion charts for 1327 AE. Please feel free to share and use this!
Esprits d’Orr : The Mouvelian calendar has 360 days. How does it match with our 365 days calendar? When does the Tyrian year begin?
Angel McCoy : The connection between the Mouvelian calendar and our real-world calendar is a practical one. Thanks to your question, we had a big discussion here. The Mouvelian calendar was established way back when Guild Wars was first being created. At that time, we had no idea we’d ever be doing Living World content like we are now. We’ve decided that we’re going to change the Mouvelian calendar to a 365-day year. Here’s the official in-game asuran announcement:
“Friends and fellows. Due to recent (amazing!) reasoning by scholars of the Astronomagical Society, we are pleased to announce that we have added the five hidden days to our calendar year! That’s five extra days we’ve recognized for you to advance your work before the annual review. Gifts and gratitude are unnecessary. We merely acknowledged them officially; we did not create them. May all your projects be almost as successful as ours.” — Mikk
Since Anet has switched from 360 days to 365 days in the Mouvelian calendar, I just split our twelve IRL months into the four Mouvelian Seasons. To me, that seems the most simple thing to do.
Why don’t I want to use Wintersday as a mini-season and add that as the missing 5 days?
- Because in game, Wintersday lasts way more than 5 days.
- Because Wintersday isn’t listed on the Mouvelian Calendar as being a season all on its own. It is mentioned as something that takes place to celebrate the end of Colossus and the beginning of Zephyr (the new year).
- Because I see Wintersday as a holiday, not a season of its own.
And now for something more positive.
Anyone else out there who does a lot of writing (RP, fan-fiction or otherwise) that centers around Asura?
I ran across this incredibly useful tool a few months ago; it helps a lot when I’m trying to make up words or names for inventions or whatever within my fanfic. You just click the button and it spits out a term. Some are really bad, but others work really well- so you just have to click through until you find something that works for whatever you need.
I love the fact this exists; I’m so terrible at coming up with technobabble and pseudo-intellectual sounding words.
Someone take me. Please. Anyone. I want to go now!
ALWAYS REBLOG SOCOTRA.
I love this place it’s amazing TAKE ME THERE.
Destiny will encourage players to collaborate through a system of rewards for positive interactions. In-game gestures such as waving and saluting are mapped to the D-pad, showing Bungie’s desire for improved cooperation and communication in game.
I made a completely professional mspaint graph about my experience solo-leveling a mesmer.
This is so accurate
Waypointing while falling in the Labyrinthine Cliffs seemed like a good idea until I had the most interesting glitch happen. I ended up stuck in the WP area, unable to move, and frozen in the falling animation. After a while it reverted to the more crouched animation. It was just embarrassing enough until people started WPing underneath me, and under my skirt. At least the asura had a good laugh.
brb quietly screaming with joy since the tomorrow’s trait/skill balance might make my favorite (but currently not very viable) guardian build a lot more fucking viable yaaaay okay not so quiet screaming now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
More commissions, this time by the incredibly talented and sweet 9mileshigh. These are the pair of guardians that skiesovergideon and I like to play and we thought it was high time they got busts, and matching ones at that. Just look at them! *___* These are really so lovely. I can’t stop flailing!
skiesovergideon and I decided to try and take a group picture of most of our characters. This was a few months ago. In the interim we’ve doubled this amount
because we’ve got alt problems but as it stands, it’s still a super cute pic of a few of them. Extra bonus points for smiling Cael. That never happens.
Right to Left: Cael (hers), Deirdre (mine), Tesra (mine), Ishbell (hers), Aevar (mine), Sonyanka (hers), and Wrex (Ish’s).
