It starts to get into the length of the Gloranthan Year (shorter than ours), how long nine months corresponds to (one year, probably), and eventually the length of "moon cycles". Let's not go there. We all know, all too well, that the pretence that a Gloranthan year is the same as a RW year, despite containing considerably fewer 24-hour days, is just that - a pretence to save us doing sums. But we need it, because we don't like sums.
