The Legend of Welanica
The calender system used in Welancia is based on the founding of the kingdom. With year 0 being the year the kingdom was founded. The years are in the YF format. The people use a 12 month calender system, with years being 354 days long normally. Every two years, an extra month is inserted after the fourth month, as a month of celebration. Deciding on when this extra month is added is one of the many jobs of the king, as the mortal and spiritual leader of his people.

*The months were named by King Alucian, after the twelve strongest gods at the time, with the thirteenth month being named after the god of the underworld.
*Kyanion is the extra month added every two years. It is named after the god of death, and celebrations are held in his honor to appease him, so that he is happy during the week’s reserved for him during the next two years.
**The number three is lucky in Welanica, because of this the months with 30 days are considered good months, and the ones with 29 bad months.
There are eight days in the week in Welanica. The eighth day being market day, the day that everyone uses to travel to the nearest market to buy supplies for the next seven days.
