Pereqaian Calendar

The calendar begins counting after the Treaty of the Tribes was signed.  
 

Structure

 

Year, Month & Weeks

  The Pereqaian calendar is based on the cyclic movements of Qentora, which takes 348 days to complete its orbit around the star Tadan'a, and of its moon Belen'a which has a lunar cycle of 25 days.   Accordingly, a Pereqaian year has 14 months. Each month has 25 days, except for the fourth and eleventh month which have 24. Furthermore, these months are equally split into five weeks.
