The Standard Atriand Calendar

The calendar of Atriand is based on the lunar cycles of the year that it was standardized. It has 13 months: 12 of either 29 or 30 days, and a month at the end of the year which is 11 days long (12 during leap years). This month, Dragonsmoon, is a time of festivals and celebration in Atriand, beginning with the Winter Solstice generally falling on the first or second day.   Correspondences with the Gregorian calendar:
Modern Date (Date during leap years) Atriand Date # of days
January 01 01 Firstmoon 30
January 31 01 Secondmoon 29
March 01 (Feb 29 in leap years) 01 Thirdmoon 30
March 31 (30 in ly) 01 Fourthmoon 29
April 29 (28 in ly) 01 Fifthmoon 29
May 28 (27 in ly) 01 Sixthmoon 30
June 27 (26 in ly) 01 Seventhmoon 29

October 23 (22 in ly) 01 Eleventhmoon 29
November 21 (20 in ly) 01 Twelfthmoon 30
December 21 (20 in ly) 01 Dragonsmoon 11 or 12
  The scholars of Atriand who set down the calendar liked their naming conventions to be precise and to the point (read: unimaginative).   The current year in the comic is 962 ABS (After the Battle of Souls).
