General Information Edit

Inefra Edit

Ifryn Edit

  • Illustra was the capital.
  • Yarat was apparently a city: He was a street poet from Yarat.[1]

Can I not miss the soaring spires of Deconar? Or the high domes of Peshmenat?[2]

There are seasons. The first week of a season (or perhaps month) is oneweek: paid on Duadi of oneweek.[8]

Month names include:

  • Duem
  • Triem
  • Qauttrem
  • Octem
  • Ten month, as in I was born on the fortieth of ten month[9]

Month evidently had at least 40 days.

A quint is probably a fifth of a year: send our reports every quint. Possibly five months?

Time of Day Edit

A glass was a measure of time, about an hour, from an hourglass. A quint was one fifth of a glass. There were ten glasses per day: On the polished white oak stand beside the bed was a mechanical glass, the circular face with its single hand. There were five marks between each of the ten triangles.[10]
