Months (Legion System): The system used by the Legion in my stories. The Legion has years of 25 avae (Legion months), each month consisting of 20 cultrume (Legion days). Each day consists of 12 cie (Legion hours). Each dil (Legion week), consists of 8 days. Each year has 506 days, evenly divided into 25 months of 20 days and 6 extra days at the end, called avaldoe (division days). This is a bizarre system, and is never meant to be used in actual real life, but for literary purpouses only. However, for cultural and interest’s sake, I will list the 25 months of the Legion Calendar: Ta, Tarviat, Enini, Dil, Sil, Mi, Tei, Vin, Son, Eni, Soni, Lison, Munca, Cancor, Cul, Vac, Tesa, Cilehrhav, Tiransatax, Tarjume, Tacicav, Ioda, Ceran, Iasvi, Tabest, and Avaldoe (division days).

Months (Badí Calendar):
This is a calendar based on the 19-number system. Each day is 24 hours, from sunset to sunset. Each week is 7 days. Each month is 19 days. Each year consists of 19 months. Each “Vahid” consists of 19 years. After the end of the 18th month, there is a period of 4 days, 5 in leap years to make it an even 365 days. Every 19 Vahids is one Oucau Zepe (lit. all things), a period of 361 years. The week begins with Saturday and ends with Friday. The first day of the year, Enor Cultrum (lit. New Day), is the evening of March 21st (the Spring Equinox). Based on the Badí Calendar of the Kitáb-i-Asmá’, this is the most logical and even calendar system in the world! :)
