Time

Most of Uestria uses a common calendar for days/weeks/months that was standardized by the Gnomes. Individual countries tend to have different annual systems and may change years at different calendar dates, but there is broad agreement on the day and month.

All names below are the shorthand common versions. Each language group has its own nomenclature but virtually everyone is familiar with the common slang.

Each week has 8 days:

Godsday = Gods

Homeday = Hom

Lordsday = Lords

Wildsday = Wild

Fielday = Feld

Travelday = Trek

Marketday = Ket (weekend)

Sleepday = Slep (weekend)

*Feastday = Fest (always appended to the end of the last week)

The easy way to remember the order is that the Gods made our Home, and the Lords protect it from the dangers of the Wilds so we can work the Fields and Trek to Market so it’s still there when we come back and go to Sleep.

Each month has 5 weeks and a festival day at the end. Each year has 8 months and there’s two extra feast days at the end of every other month (seasonal festivals) Spring - Vurrin Eskin

Summer - Tolas Lovas

Fall - Kurrsh Shalish

Winter - Umbre Nasre

Most villages and small towns measure their days by sunrise and sunset, with little finer distinction than before or after noon. In large towns or those with regular gnomish trade there is some chance that clocks of moderate accuracy might be found. Time is usually set at noon, and even the best clock will lose a minute or more over the course of a day and so are not useful for navigation.
