I finally have a vague idea of my calendar system.

My planet's revolution period is 414 days. Another planet's synodic period is 678 days. My moons' synodic periods are 29 and 42 days. I'll made these numbers fit together somehow.

How do your calendars work?

Um, mine is boring, as it uses virtually the Gregorian Calendar. >_<

But this is how it goes:

The Nymphan calendar has 360 days, 364 when including the four days of Éostara, Lythar, Modrhon and Yulé. We know that there are around 365¼ days in the Gregorian calendar and therefore, we will be missing a day and a quarter every year and by the fourth year, we would have missed 5 and therefore, every four years, 1 day is added to each of the months of March, April and July, where May has 2 extra days.

There are 12 months, which correspond to the ones of Earth. Here are the names of them and what they are abbreviated to.

Code:
January   khoran    kho
February   motan   mot
March   saléman   sal
April   arégan   are
May   harésan   hare
June   aloéyan   alo
July   ahrwahan   ahr
August   samtagan   sam
September   oloktanan   olok
October   fuingan   fui
November   ngoran   ngo
December   ngastan   nga


Every month contains 30 days; the extra days of Éostara, Lythar, Modrhon and Yulé are not counted as numbers, only the weekday, ie Monday/Tuesday etc. The "leap" days have been specially chosen as they correspond with the months in which important characters/authors of the story celebrate their birthday. March is the month of my birthday, April is Lucky's, May is the birthday of both Hopper and Guinea (or at least that is the best estimate for their birthdates), and so two days are added, and finally July is the co-author's birthday. These "leap" days do not follow the days of the week and therefore, every month starts on the same weekday, but are assigned a date.

The days Éostara, Lythar, Modrhon and Yulé are the names of the solstices and equinoxes for the creatures of Nymphfayr. They have been derived from the Pagan names of Ostara, Litha, Modron and Yule. The special dates are celebrated and coincides quite closely with our Gregorian calendar, but they are about one day after the Gregorian celebrations.

Éostara (ay-os-ta-ra) is a time of balance between the amount of daylight and darkness, it is time for growth and youthfulness.

Lythar (li-far) is the day when the sun is at it’s highest power, the longest day of the year, however, also, from this day onwards, the sun’s rule starts to wane.

Modrhon (mod-ron) is another time of balance, however, compared to Éostara, it is time for darker days and for harvest.

Yulé (you-lay) is the day with the shortest amount of daylight, it focuses on the diminished sun but contradicting, it also witnesses the rebirth of the sun.

Narcissus is on the first full moon after Éostara. Even though, due to the additional and special days, the full moon would be out of line, the 15th of each month is usually the closest day to the full moon. Sometimes the actual full moon will land on the 14th or the 16th but this is easily corrected with the lunar calendar.

The position of the 4 special days, collectively called the Duboaché, do change in a four year cycle. I've figured this out by listing all the days of both calendars. >_<

Code:
   1st year   2nd year   3rd Year   4th Year
Eostara   20-21   17-18   18-19   19-20
Lythar   17-18   18-19   19-20   20-21
Modrhon   17-18   19-20   20-21   21-22
Yule   17-18   19-20   20-21   21-22


Now that we have the months, we need the weekday names. There are 7 weekdays because they correspond to the planets in Aurpiqai. Here they are:

Monday - grékaramat - gré
Tuesday - zangaramat - za
Wednesday - mukularamat - muk
Thursday - auraramat - aur
Friday - hwaramat - hwa
Saturday - woraramat - wo
Sunday - zuklaramat - zuk

A usual date format is as so:
Year, Solar Month, (Lunar Month), Weekday, Day Number/Name, Hour, Minute

Therefore in English, if we have this:
7:38 PM Friday 1st June 2007

In Eleypherion we would arrange it into:
2007, June, 6th Lunar Month, Friday, 1, 7 pm, 38

And then change it to Eleypherion
khontarodul, aloéyan masila hwaramat nilg ta ectsokimla guarnaivinimla

When simplified, it becomes:
2007 alo ma hwa 1 ta 19imla 38vinimla

Every 27 years, the cycle between the Gregorian calendar and the Nymphan calendar becomes the same again, as in the days start on the same day again, and there are 6 special cycles.

Code:
(27 years) 1 cycle   rasulilinan
(135 years) 5 cycles   umsomlinan
(270 years) 10 cycles   rasuldiqirililinan
(675 years) 25 cycles   umsomindirilinan
(1350 years) 50 cycles   rasaldumqiramilnirinan
(2700 years) 100 cycles   umsilandurumilirinanonan


Today's date would be (Thursday, 3rd July, 2008, 7:03):

521, Aloéyan, Woraramat, 29, 7imla 3vinimla

So in English terms, it is a Saturday, 29th of Aloéyan (corresponding to June), in the year 521.

Damn, I had one somewhere, and it worked really well, but I seem to have lost it, and I have no idea how it worked, as I made it 2 years ago.

I think I've explained Adpihi's lunisolar calendar before.
It has days and months and years; it doesn't have weeks so it doesn't have names for days of the week.
It repeats in a cycle every 57 years.
Months are either 29 days long or 30 days long.
Years are either 12 months long or 13 months long.
So there are four different lengths for years when counted in days; depending not only on whether it's a 12-month or a 13-month year, but also on whether it has more 29-day and fewer 30-day months, or more 30-day and fewer 29-day months.
235 months = 19 years.
(Roughly, 360 months = 10631 days; roughly, 400 years = 146097 days.)

The pattern for lengths of years in months is:
1 12
2 13
3 12
4 12
5 13
6 12
