Period of day

This part is no longer accurate... today it was still nighttime at 6:53am, Sunday 27th Offle Secundus, UC 2027.

In fact...

The turnwise sky starts to lighten as the sun peeks over the horizon.

This is an elegant silver wristwatch.  The strap is thin and delicate, with a small round face upon which the hands have been tooled in thin black.
The time reads: 7:32am, Sunday 27th Offle Secundus, UC 2027.
It is in excellent condition.
The sun rises above the turnwise horizon and greets you for a new day.

I'm guessing it changes with the seasons.

Could be. Though I only obtained the times through digging a while through the distribution mudlib since it was all references to minutes after some variables which got very complex fast so I'm not even sure if the table was right at all but it seemed plausible.

It would make sense that if sunrise and sunset change with the seasons in the mud the night time would be corrected to fit between those.

Though the chats about the sun coming up might not necessarily be when the room desc changes. --Frazyl 01:09, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
