At first it sounded very similar to the dwarfen calendar I made recently. It's based loosely around the lunar month and resets twice each year, once at the winter solstice and once at the summer solstice. The really bizarre bit being that many months always begin on the same day of the week, meaning that months change in length from year to year. As I recall the current year's calendar I had built even had one month that was nearly 60 days in length, and was preceded by a month that lasted only 18 days. In the year after, these months would both be closer to 30 days in length (I think it was somewhere around 42 and 27 days respectively). The original basis for the dwarf calendar idea is based on the real life runic calendar, while I didn't stick to the source by any means, I recommend checking it out. The standard calendar I built for the setting uses 13 months of 28 days each (364 days total) with a transition day between years that isn't kept on the calendar. Just for another take on calendars.
