Hours of the day

  The Day in Caramiza is subdivided into hours, with hours usually counted as "after sunrise", "after highsun" or "after sunset". As the time of sunrise and sunset varies over the year, this led to several vague and confusing way of keeping time. In 1162 a convention of scholars defined the hours properly as a twenty-fourth of a day with the first twelve hours before and the other twelve hours after the highest point of the sun. Conventionally, one would say "Second hour of the morning" or "fifth Hour of the evening", even though some count the hours to 24.  

Exceptions and regional oddities

Whale time on the Gamian Sea
  Along the coast of Gamian Sea, many people divide their day by "hours after the fountains", refering to the large schools of Fountainfish rising up to the surface almost the exact same time every day.
Startime in the Brachtwalde
  In the Region of Brachtwalde the community counts their hours after the sunset. This stems from a long tradition of astronomers and especially Starseeker in the area.

Days of the week

  Caramiza has seven days of the week, as it was traditionally brought along from another world by the First Folk. After the ascension of the Great Pantheon, most days were named after one of the deities. Still, many days have different nicknames in the public.  


The first day of the week, the church often calls it Apac Day. Usually a good day to start a longer project for the next few days.

Windtag / Dark Day

The fourth day of the week is not dedicated to any deity. Many people believe this day to often bring bad luck. Followers of Zecod attribute this day to the fallen god.

Special Days

Some days have a special meaning and eithe rmark a specific day in a calendar or are a recurring thing.  

Winter Solstice - Dragonnight

The shortest day of the year is also considered the beginning of a new year. It is dedicated to Vitukua, the god of the everlasting cycle. To honour him, most people simply call this the dragonnight.  

Full Moon

Any day where the moon is completely full and round at night is called a day of full moon. It is believed this is the day the power of evil are at its weakest and the power of magic flourish the most.  

Gazezu's Balance

  This day happens twice a year, when day and night are equally long. They usually either mark the start of spring or fall.  

Months in a Year

  A year is considered the time of a full solar cycle, counted as the time between the days with the longest night - the Dragonnight - it contains roughly 340 days which is divided into 12 months of 28 days each as well as an inbetween period of four to five days where the people prepare for the arrival of a new year.   The Months roughly follow the lunar cycle, which takes almost 28,25 days. As such, both the months and the individuall full moon within the month are named the same. Due to a slight discrepancy, the day of full moon slowly shifts towards the end of a month continously. For several years in a row, the last moon of a year falls into the days between months - leaving the first month of the following year without any full moon at all.  


Literally the "Hard Moon", the first month of the year refers to the usually hard frozen lands and rivers in most of the nation. It starts with the end of Dragonnight


The "Fool's Moon" often contains a sudden early thawing, fooling people into an early spring.


"Lenz" being an old name for spring, the Spring Moon shows first signs of warming nature, of upcoming spring. At the end of this month, Gazezu's Spring Balance will happen.


The "Changing Moon" is a time of stormy and unpredictable weather. The winds are getting slowly warmer though and the very last frost has gone by now.


The fifth month of the year brings warm, pleasant weather. The "Pleasent Moon" is a time of spring time celebration.


The "Honey Moon" is the month with the longest day of the year and is aptly named for the many riches nature offers for the people to eat.


The seventh month is often filled with thunderstorms, leading to it having the name of "Thunder Moon"


This time of year, everybody usually participates in the first big harvest on the fields of Copperwynn leading up to a large harvest celebration. As such the eight month is the "Harvest Moon".


When the days start to get colder again, many animals start migrating. In the past, this was a great time for hunting - naming this month the "Hunt Moon".


When everything in nature starts to turn red and the wine is ready to be shared, the often red-ish Blood Moon is wandering across the sky.


During the "Fog Moon", the first frost often creeps across the lands - acompanied by thick fog, especiall in the marsh areas of the Fenorijten Swamp


The last month of the year often brings with it the first snow and frozen rivers. For many, the "Ice Moon" is a time to come together as a family.

Lost Moon

If a full moon happens during the unnamed days between years, it will simply be called a lost moon. During these nights, many prefer to stay home, because it will be too easy to become lost yourself.
