Time of day / Seasons

Each Dereth Day last 2 hours 7 mins (real-time).

Back in the world of Ispar, whence came the Aluvians, Gharu'ndim, and Sho, the great Empire of Roulea once spanned much of the land. Though Roulean influence has long since faded, the language now called "Old Roulean" has been taken up by traders of all nations. Here on Dereth, where the heritage groups have been thrown together in close proximity, Old Roulean has proven indispensable as a common tongue and measure of time. Here is the Old Roulean system of measuring the hours of the day:

(6 a.m. sunrise) Dawnsong
(7:30 a.m.)
Dawnsong-and-Half
(9 a.m.)
Morntide
(10:30 a.m.)
Morntide-and-Half
(12 noon)
Midsong
(1:30 p.m.)
Midsong-and-Half
(3 p.m.)
Warmtide
(4:30 p.m.)
Warmtide-and-Half
(6 p.m.)
Evensong
(7:30 p.m.)
Evensong-and-Half
(9 p.m. sunset)
Gloaming
(10:30 p.m.)
Gloaming-and-Half
(12 midnight)
Darktide
(1:30 a.m.)
Darktide-and-Half
(3 a.m.)
Foredawn
(4:30 a.m.)
Foredawn-and-Half

Weeks are 6 days long, deriving from the old Roulean religion of the triumvirate Goddess:

Firstday - In the Old Roulean system, the day of celebrating a new week
Starday - In the Old Roulean system, the day of honoring Tirius
Earthday - In the Old Roulean system, the day of paying respects to Solvas
Moonsday- In the Old Roulean system, the day of praying for deliverance from Meerthus
Elderday - In the Old Roulean system, the day of honoring ancestors
Freeday - In the Old Roulean system, the day of rest

Each month = 30 days (5 weeks)

Morningthaw, Solclaim, Seedsow - Spring
Leafdawning, Verdantine, Thistledown - Summer
Harvestgain, Leafcull, Frostfell - Autumn
Snowreap, Coldeve, Wintersebb - Winter

Each year = 12 months (60 weeks, or 360 days)

Years are expressed in numbers dating from the time the humans finally escaped Olthoi slavery, and are expressed in the format "n P.Y.", where n is the number of the year, and P.Y. stands for Portal Year, the equivalent of our A.D. (except, of course, unlike A.D. it comes after the number and not before). The game began in 10 P.Y.
