Time as Measured in the Kingdom of Shakala

The kingdom of Shakala marks time in years, months, weeks, days, and hours. This system is not accurate enough for some scholarly individuals who make more accurate measurements of the 30 hours. In some cases they may also divide the hours further for more precise time measurements.

  • There are 336 days in its year.
  • The year is broken into 4 seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
  • Each season is divided into 3 months.
  • Each month is subdivided into 4 weeks.
  • Each week has 7 days. (This means each month has 28 days.)
  • Each day is divided into 3 periods of approximately 10 hours each.
  • The 3 periods are known as Sunup, Midday, and Sundown.
  • The time in each period is counted by the number of hours since period’s beginning.
    • Most Shakalan will generally use the terms “quarter past”, “half past”, and “quarter til” when needing to speak about a portion of an hour.

When referring to which year it is, the people of Shakala are measuring how may years since the foundation of the kingdom. Official documents will use the term SR for Shakalan Rule. The original idea was that if another family were to take over the first word in the term could be changed to their house name. This has not yet been needed.
