There are things about the Culture and about the Faction that people may not understand or that is not explained fully, if you have a problem understanding something then don't hesitate to ask. What's listed here is information to help make it easier for people to understand the Neshaten.
As has been mentioned in the species pages and CCG, the Neshaten age once every two years due to their slow aging process. This means that if a Neshaten is 30 years old in YE 30, they won't turn 31 until YE 32, and then in YE 34 they'll turn 32, and in YE 36 they'll turn 33.
To make it easier to understand, there is a chart here for new characters to use:
To calculate the age, just put the character age that you want to be (example, 27) in the last row, then go backwards (skipping a row in the process)
THIS CHART IS wRONG, use Neshaten Time Line
|Era of Restart||Era of Exploration||YE Year|
For a larger list of years (in case your character goes beyond what is here, or if you want a better depiction) go here: Neshaten Year Guide
Simply put, one Neshaten Year, is two Human Years. This means, in other words, 2012 is the Neshaten Year of EoE 001. 2013, would still be EoE 001. However, 2014 would be EoE 002.
|Human Year||Nesha Year||Seasons||Yamatai Year|
|2012||EoE 001||Harvest > Cold||YE 34|
|2013||EoE 001-v||Cold > Storms||YE 35|
|2014||EoE 002||Harvest > Cold||YE 36|
|2015||EoE 002-v||Cold > Storms||YE 37|
|2016||EoE 003||Harvest > Cold||YE 38|
|2017||EoE 003-v||Cold > Storms||YE 39|
|2018||EoE 004||Harvest > Cold||YE 40|
|2019||EoE 004-v||Cold > Storms||YE 41|
|2020||EoE 005||Harvest > Cold||YE 42|
|2021||EoE 005-v||Cold > Storms||YE 43|
|2022||EoE 006||Harvest > Cold||YE 44|
|2023||EoE 006-v||Cold > Storms||YE 45|
|2024||EoE 007||Harvest > Cold||YE 46|
|2025||EoE 007-v||Cold > Storms||YE 47|
|2026||EoE 008||Harvest > Cold||YE 48|
|2027||EoE 008-v||Cold > Storms||YE 49|
The -v refers to the second half of that year.
It should be noted that the Era of Restart saw the addition of the 'second half of the year' to the Neshaten Calender, in order for the Neshaten to retain their tradition. Because of this, it makes understanding the year and how they operate much easier.
Generally speaking, what is listed is how they work:
|Begin Neshaten (Example: EoE 002) and Human Year (Example: Start of 2014)|
|New Harvest||January > February|
|Waxing Harvest||March > April|
|Waning Harvest||May > June|
|Full Harvest||July > August|
|New Cold||September > October|
|Waxing Cold||November > December|
|End Human Year (Example: End of 2014)|
|Begin Human Year (Example: Start of 2015) Neshaten Year Advances: (Example: EoE 002-v)|
|Wanning Cold||January > February|
|Full Cold||March > April|
|New Storm||May > June|
|Waxing Storm||July > August|
|Wanning Storm||September > October|
|Full Storm||November > December|
|End Neshaten and Human (Example: End of 2015)|
|Begin Human Year, repeat cycle (Example: 2016), Neshaten year advances by one (Example: EoE 003)|
Now, if we use the Yamatai Calender, this would also mean that the Neshaten would go into EoE year 002 when the Yamataian Calender is YE 36 (Or, 2014).
To put it simply, it has to do with Neshaten history. Their old homeworld took nearly nine hundred days to revolve around its parent star, this is because that planet was located a good distance from the star - but within that systems habitable zone.
When the Neshaten evacuated to their new system, they discovered that the planet they settled on actually took less time to revolve around the star. Although they could've just done away with the four hundred thousand year old system they were originally using, they decided to just keep it since it made sense to them.
It's like the old saying if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
[Rewritten to make easier to understand]
They age once every two OOC years, however, education is largely unaffected. Humans typically spend twelve years in school, but to someone not used to the Neshaten calender, they may view Neshaten children as spending almost twenty four. This is not true, Neshaten children still spend at most twelve years of schooling (depending on if they decide to join the work force after their sixth year of school or not), the only reason it appears that they spend longer is because the Neshaten calender is twice as long as a typical human one.
Thus, to a Human, a Neshaten child spends two years per grade, but a Neshaten child they only spend 'one' year per grade.
No, that's not what the Rite of Honour is. The Rite of Honour is a unique and special event in the lives of the Neshaten, it's also quite rare.
As of this point, yes you can; but please inform the FM before doing so.
This is more of a blunder on my end than anything else, despite knowing quite a bit of monarchs and my love of them I - for some reason - thought Nobility were not Royalty while I was creating the Neshaten, by the time someone noticed and corrected me on my mistake it was pretty much too late to change that.
Cultural wise, it can be explained that the Neshaten consider Nobility to be a seperate class from Royalty. Where as other factions, would consider Nobility to be part of Royalty.
