Time in Torus

There are two calendar systems in use in Torus, one pre-dating the Kingdom of Kreisvolk and one introduced by the first Kaiser Karl I.

Calendar

Natural Time

Natural time is the system of marking time prevalent across Torus before the Kreisvolk unification. Most people still use natural time colloquially and use Rational Time for official and written communication. It is also used exclusively by Wenigen and Weis and all those outside of the Kingdom.

The system centers around the seasons and lunar cycle which are broken down into weeks composed of 5 days marking a planetary rotation.

Year 1 4 16 80 400
