MARKING OF TIME (Encyclopedia entry)

Seasonal and climatic factors are of crucial importance for people who live off the land.

As Unreal World simulates a more ancient time that is more tied to the seasons, it also

marks in-game time differently. The old northern calendar and concept of the year we use

goes as follows:

The year is divided into two halves, summer and winter.

These halves are marked respectively by a midsummer and a midwinter point, creating four

quarters of the year. Each quarter of the year is of equal length consisting of 13 weeks

of 7 days each, for a total of 364 days in one year.

Time is also marked by twelve lunar months named to remind people about seasonal work and

duties at hand, or natural phenomenons about to take place.

People count down weeks from one quarter to the next. The beginning of a quarter is marked

as week 13. As weeks pass, the count is decreased marking the approach of the next quarter.

Counting weeks in reverse between the quarters comes from people's need to be aware of how

close the next transition period is - as changing of quarters is particularly magical time.

At the beginning of each new quarter, the people renew the count at 13 weeks.

The following month names are in use. They are correlated with Julian calendar names and

equivalent northern-hemisphere seasons for reference.
