Quiz: When is your Skyrim (Tamriel) Birthdate?

Source

Journal Entry #1

A nightmare plagues my dreams and thoughts... It is about a place I know nothing about, and a place I know much about. I am Niauren-Ei, and I have dedicated my life to the study of Skyrim and its skies. In my youth, I studied at The College of Winterhold, and spent much time in the Arcanaeum. Today I travel throughout the wild lands of Skyrim, often camping near riverbanks, and searching the skies for answers.

Journal Entry #2

It wasn't more than two years ago that I began having dreams about a place called Earth. The dreams are vague, but thought provoking. In one dream I was taught by a young Imperial, or so he appeared, about something called a Gregorian calendar. It is somewhat like the Tamrielic calendar, but differs in a few ways. The dream felt strangely real, unlike any other dream I had experienced.

Journal Entry #3

I dismissed the dream, but every night the dream continued to plague my thoughts. I did everything in my power to move beyond it, to believe it was mere nonsense and move forward with my research into the skies of Tamriel, but this dream continued night after night, without ceasing. Eventually I began to refer to it as a nightmare, because it simply would never end.

Journal Entry #4

I finally have begun to see the importance in the dream, and why it plagued me for so long. There is an important connection between this Gregorian calendar, and our Tamrielic calendar. I have studied the stars for many years now, and have decided to call the phenomenon "Seeds of the Sky." Kud-Ei would be proud! Though I didn't know my distant relative Kud-Ei, I feel an overwhelming connection to her in times of clarity. All I really know is that she resided in Cyrodill. My mother believed that she and I were alike in many ways, and often talked of her great mind and heart.

Journal Entry #5

I have connected the two calendars, so that any day on one can be found on the other. I admit that had I not read so many books in the Arcanaeum, I may have never understood the dream at all. One of the more helpful books through this endeavor was "The Firmament" by Ffoulke. The book details constellations and their meanings. I have recorded the results of the "Seeds of the Sky" phenomenon beneath these words...
