The Calendar in RuneScape has ten months, as revealed in Postbag from the Hedge issue 21. The total number of days in a year is 365.25 (see "leap year"), as with the real world.

Months of the Gielinorian year

9 February – 18 March There is an additional day in the middle of Moevyng every four years, called Moevyng Day, similar to a leap day. Also, Moevyng sounds sort of like the word "moving," which is what Moevyng Day does.

Old Saradominist days of the week

The "Old Saradominist calendar", as mentioned by a H.A.M. guard, is a different system of names for the days of the week as seen in The Chosen Commander. It seems to fallen out of common use at some point, but some people, such as Nora T. Hagg and a H.A.M splinter group still seem to use it, however. The names for the days and their modern equivalents are:

  • Ivanday - Monday
    *Caistleday - Tuesday
    *Duneday - Wednesday
    *Gullday - Thursday
    *Erysail - Friday
    *Twiblick - Saturday
    *Essianday - Sunday


The days of the week are all adaptations of the names of the Seven Priestly Warriors who fought back the dark forces in Morytania. |}
