Days are 24 hours long, 1 hour is 60 minutes, 1 minute is 60 seconds.
Years are 294 days or 7 months long, 1 month is 42 days or 3 fortnights, 1 fortnight is 14 days.
There are two named seasons in the year Summer and Winter:
- Summer – approximately 200 days
- Winter – approximately 100 days
The time between seasons are known as Marches:
- March of Exhor – Heralds the coming of Summer, begins one month before the end of Winter
- March of Batta – Heralds the coming of Winter, begins one month before the end of Summer
Time is commonly written as the name of the age, followed by the year of that age. If a more specific time is needed then a colon is added and then the fortnight of the year the event took place. If more precision is necessary a comma is added and then the day of that fortnight is written.
It translates as follows:
- Kings 574 – Year 574 of the Age of Kings
- Kings 574:10 – Night 10 of the Year 574 of the Age of Kings
- Kings 574:10,3 – Day 143 of the Year 574 of the Age of Kings
Due to the complexity of this format it is not used beyond the year by many commoners1. They will use years and nights but often times will write out the number of days. Scholars, historians, and nobles will use the full format when precision or status requires it.
1 Creatures with less than a 10 intelligence cannot perform the mathematics necessary to calculate days using this format unless they were specifically taught mathematics.
