« Tarloc was the Nash Prophet who developped the calendar 3,074 BA - 2,985 BA »

Tarloc was the Historian who lived during the Thrían Còtta - Líer, also known as the Period of Acension. He is the son of Nash Scientists, an intelligent and logical race, living in the deep jungles of Onaísha. The Nash are a human race who have browner skin and more exotic features opposed to the Melkàu. Queen Larissa and Princess Samawàqua are two of the famous rulers of Nash. Just as the Cátern elves have browner skin than the Elyrian, the Nash have darker skin than the Melkàu. Tarloc came from the country of Lhussar, land of lush jungles. He emigrated north with his companions and were feared by the humans in the Kingdom of Melkàu. At first, many thought they were the lost Children of the Morning, but as time went on, King Elgarnon of Melkàu accepted the new immigrants to his land. Tarloc arrived in the last wave of immigration.

When he arrived, Tarloc began having visions and began seeing signs. Some of the signs and visions were accepted by the Seers and Sages of Melkàu, but many citizens of Melkàu feared Tarloc and his sages. Tarloc's signs later became basis for, not only the Ardònic Sidereal Calendar, but the System of Writing and the Kue Phonetic Alphabet, often called the Kue Oracles. While living in the Kingdom of Melkàu, Tarloc went on many journeys and one of those journeys was to the East, usually refered to as Esk or Eíshk.

In the East, Tarloc met the elves and shared his visions with them. Gladly, the elves took whole-heartedly to his sign and accepted them with greatness. Knowing the magical capability of the elves, Tarloc stayed in the Esk to live with the elves. Just before dying, Tarloc return to Melkàu and had his last vision. This vision redered Tarloc ill and blind. It is not known what became of Tarloc, but his writings were found, secretly kept in the Kue Mountains by the Westbound Sojourners, early in the Hardòna Còtta and the birth of King Shuiemha. Below are a list of months on the Sidereal Calendar of the Kue Empire and the Eíshk, which were used for prophecies of Tarloc during the Earth Era and Sad Era.

The first four months on the calendar are devoted to the Elemental Point of Luth, and Ràvinya, god of dreams inspires men during these months...

Treíkasara (30) -- trekii < Kue, "fervent." This is the month of fervency. This month is endowed to Iskàul, god of water and conscience.

Trekkàshara (31) -- trekka < Kue, "fervency." This is the month Tarloc foresaw as the month of King Tristan. It was this month which would be devoted to his restoration of Uran. Graòva, the seed-god, promotes restoration and growth during this month, just as he sent King Tristan to Thoris Port. The Feast of the Harvest or Bhlessayar is celebrated as the day of Saíra in Kue Mythology. The Day of Unity.
Dezhsàra (30) -- degga < Kue, "foggy". This month is often aspired to be the gloomy foggy month of the Spring-Tide. It is noted for is mucky and rainy weather. Lankìnya, goddess of the rain and moods, controls this month. It is also the month King Ilùviuks was born.

§ Earth Months §

The next four months are devoted the Elemental Point of Erde, and Queen Saa`skàuty illuminates them.

Shevàrtal (30) -- shevair < Kue, "wisdom." This is the month of wisdom and illumination, devoted to the goddess of love, Shívar. During this month, nature blooms into beauty, symbolizing the union of Graòva, the seed god to Shívar, the goddess of love.
Kwairshtal (30) -- kwaswar < Kue, "county or Clan." Summer time. This month is well-known for the traditional Chieftain Summer Games. This is also the time, most Cheiftains hold their elections to offices. Suva, god of blood, vitalizes this month. Kwairshtal 23 (also seen as Kwarishal) is the Day of Clans, and High-Tide, especially in the Eíshk.
Tleímtal (30) -- tle'lak < Kue, "in the middle of." This is the High-Tide month on the Tarlòccian Calendar. Usually after Kwairshal 23 this is marked as "High-tide," meaning a time of feasts and celebration. Summer begins to wind down as the month ends, but Tleímtal is most noted for the great strength in nature! The Time of Uisara Talar is celebrated to commererate the strength in the seasons. Ollen, god of strength, inspires this month. "High Tide" is also the time that many young, Elyrian Elfs go on their "journey of enlightenment." The men take their vows down the path of Oálakrias, a path of strict muscle and nerve training. They are trained as warriors for Ollen. The women travel down the path of Skàucho`in, a path of beauty and magic by the Cloud Goddess.
Anùltal (30) -- Anult = the goddess of logic and science in Kue Mythology. This is the month of Anult, where seasons begin to wind down and wizards schools open. In Thoris Port, Clerical Orders begin initiating and looking for new members.

§ Fire Months §

The next months are devoted to the Elemental Point of Ilùvi, and Kuírbha, god of lightning and time heads the end of the year with chaos...

Norroàsabba (30) -- noras < Kue, "mighty wind." The windy month, or better known as Astrapàuxam, "Fall Tide" begins the 13th day. This is the period of time where nature "begins to go to sleep." Akkævall, goddess of desire, controls the destructive winds during this season. Rumor has it, that Akkævall was so angry that the gentle winds of Salvork, the god of navigation. She was enraged that the winds were destroying her "desirous beauty," so she sought revenge on him with a cursed wind, a wind to destroy nature.

Saíbhsabba (31) -- sabba < Kue, "silence." This is the Silent Month, where nature returns to a dead state of existence. After the "winds of Akkævall" take its course, silence falls. It is also month Daulky Kinkayle was born. Wuàde, god of fire, uses his "fire" to bring "death" to nature. Sabha Velnuír is on the 31st Day.
Garroàsabba (30) -- gairroh < Kue, "snow." The snowy month of winter is dominated by the fire god, Desikìnya, god of ice and resistance. Desikìnya, also known as "Desikìnya, the Stubborn," has long been the ally of the elves in the Kingdom of Cátern. The Cátern elves adore him, because he preserves nature and opposes Wuàde and his corrupt fire. If it wasn't for Wuàde and Akkævall, Desikìnya would've headed the "sphere of fire" and oppose the corrupt uses of nature and technology.
Kolìfasabba (30) -- kollìferyn < Kue, "to end hostility" or "to martyr. This is the last month on a regular Shíebbata (7 Year Cycle). Fràumhna, the fire god of slow vengeance is the protector of this month. Fràumhna is also known as Old Man Winter, and the father of Desikìnya. Fràumhna protects nature until is is renewed. When winter is over, Fràumhna wakes Vínuim, allowing him to restore the calendar seasons. Fràumha also is the ally god to the Draccòn in the north. The Ksedovex Dragons are commanded by Fràumha and he uses them to maintain and refresh the magic of Towldar in Arden.

of Nheóraith to scourge the land!

§ The Month of the Concordant Summit §

Anuàsha (13) -- a`àunùan < Kue, "to sleep oneself." The Sleeping Month. It shows up every 8 years, or one Shíebhat, Seven-Cycle. One more year is needed to align the calendar, making Eight. This last month keeps sidereal alignment with the Celeste and more important, the Star Constellation, Mazzaroth. This is the sign of the Great Teacher of Arden, usually attributed to Owedæghax. Every eight years, the star sign, Mazzaroth, shining overhead during this month shines it's brightest maginitude. Scholars cannot determine why it is only this month, where the constellation overhead shines the greatest. Perhaps, Tarloc knew something that we don't. When the Conversion of Daulky Kinkayle took place at Kesky Point, the calendar season was altered by a total of 15 days, placing the Star Constellation of Mharabhàunt directly overhead on the Month of Anuàsha, usually refered to as the "Cycle of Anuàsha." Because of this change, Mharabhàunt shines the brightest not Mazzaroth.
