By rights, the Elysian Calendar should technically be called the Anyeli calendar as the meanings and names all derive from the Anyeli language and culture.

However, this is the official calendar used all across Elysia?, so we can be forgiven for the slight misnomer.

The Elysian calendar (XA) is exactly 8,000 years older than the Gregorian calendar (AD/BC) and 960 years older than the Zanaryan calendar (ZT). AD + 8000 = XA
BC - 8000 = XA
XA - 960 = ZT
AD + 7040 = ZT
BC - 7040 = ZT

All of the months in the Elysian calendar derive their names from the Anyeli word minas, which means "month". The current month is displayed in the forum sidebar on the index page.

Note: The seasons listed here are for the southern hemisphere.
