Each month has 30 days.  The campaign begins Diakrine 1, 1095 NCR** (New Celedon Reckoning).  When the New Celedonian Calendar was accepted in 138 NCR, year 1 corresponded to the foundation of New Celedon by Prince Macon Hegelyn. 

*Average monthly temperatures are listed.  Both Dunya and Furat have similar temperatures with Dunya usually being about 5 degrees lower than Furat in the Summer and about 5 degrees higher in the winter.

**Interesting note:  Although the designation NCR is accepted throughout Alyssia, Falak refuses to use the term and instead uses the designation AR (After the Return).
