CURRENT MONTH: First Andal Moon of the Smith (Justice)
"PRESENT" MONTHS: Second Maiden, First Smith, Second Smith
Here on ACTA we have created our own Calendar for the Seven Kingdoms. Established by the Andals and based on the Faith of the Seven, the Westerosi Calendar tracks the twelve moons that form the year’s lunar cycle. Each month we will let you know which moon we have moved into, and play will take place within a one month range (so one moon before and after our current moon). Any unfinished threads that are no longer in our range when we change moons will be moved to the “Past Threads” forum for completion. In order to allow our timeline to move forward at a decent pace, play time will look something like this (translated into months here for clarity):
RL September: May, June, July
RL October: July, August, September
*Because we are keeping play time in a three month range, we highly recommend that you make note the moon in which your thread takes place by putting it in your subtitle. This will help keep track of your character's personal timeline (particularly when travel is involved). If a thread is unmarked we will make a judgment call once it's time to change moons and you may have to ask for it to be moved back.
* * Please keep in mind that the calendar is lunar based, and so the months do not reflect upon the actual season nor weather. Seasons last years in Westeros, and the length of those years vary.

230AL: The Grey Plague pops up in Oldtown and the city closes it's gate. The plague is contained to the city and half the population dies.
279AL: The Tourney of Harrenhal takes place in Second Andal Moon of the Warrior.
280AL: Spring comes, and with it the Oldtown Pandemic. The first person to contract the illness died, but not without spreading it to at least twenty other people - one of which is a soon-to-be brother of the Night's Watch. Yoren, a brother traveling the Seven Kingdoms in search of new recruits, unknowingly takes the infected with him. He spreads the illness to others, and they in turn to the Reach and King's Landing, infecting countless, before Yoren himself dies in the Capital. The first month was horrible, the months after horrific.
281AL: No one could foresee it'd be years before the affects of the plague would be scarce traces. The plague is still prominent and claiming the lives of hundreds by the day. Rhaegar Targaryen is both crowned and wed to Lyanna Stark, following the death of his wife and children.
284AL: As his first major decree as king, Rhaegar Targaryen splits the Seven Kingdoms into their rightful kingdoms in an effort to revitalize Westeros. The plague is still present but no longer a major threat.
285AL: The last infected person dies and the plague is no more.
298AL: The Seven Kingdoms are prosperous, though in some regions - and hearts - the devastation is still felt from both the plague and split of power. There are growing tensions rippling through Westeros, but for now the hushed whispers of rebellion are rumors.
