Timestamps are formatted as 4-digit year, 2-digit month, 2-digit day (YYYY.MM.DD).

Days are 26 Earth-hours long. These have been reconfigured to keep 24 hours in a day, making each hour 65 minutes long.


There are twelve months in the Pernese year. The sixth and twelfth months of the year have 31 days; the rest have 30. There is a leap year every sixth year in the third month (last one was 2556).

Turn's End (12.31) coincides with the Winter Solstice (Midwinter). Spring Equinox falls on 03.30; Summer Solstice is 06.31; and Autumn Equinox is 09.30.


Unlike on Earth, where the equinoxes and solstices are known as the "First Day of" the season, the equinoxes and solstices are recognized as being the height of the season, mid-season.

The first day of Spring is 02.15; first day of Summer is 05.15; first day of Autumn is 08.15; and first day of Winter is 11.15.
