Calendar

Unofficially, the Emperor takes no position on religion. It is understood that he will ride a careful line, ensuring peace throughout the empire by never taking an official stance on the Ia / Shaldrian debate. Unfortunately, the modern calendar was developed by Shaldrian priests, working off the more ancient Regarian calendar used by the Caliphate. The result was an accurate, detailed calendar that originally dated back to the death of the prophet Shaladria. At the behest of the Throne, this starting year was moved back to the forming of the Empire, 38 years prior.

The cycle begins with 3 years each of 12 months, alternating 30 and 29 days. Then adds a 5th month in the fourth year. The next four years are 12 months, with the fifth year being 13 months. Then the cycle repeats.

The Caliphate of Ia, at the behest of the Emperor, keeps dates based on the Shaladrian calendar. They also still maintain their older, lunar calendar for internal documents. Not wanting to concede even the names of the months to the Shaladrians, the Caliphate uses their own names:

  1. Masar (30 days)
  2. Baldrey (29 days)
  3. Aerin (30 days)

  1. Kholin (30)
  2. Garis (29)
