The Land of Dereth: Time of Day and Months of the Year



Back in the world of Ispar, whence came the Aluvians, Gharu'ndim, and Sho, the great Empire of Roulea once spanned much of the land. Though Roulean influence has long since faded, the language now called "Old Roulean" has been taken up by traders of all nations. Here on Dereth, where the heritage groups have been thrown together in close proximity, Old Roulean has proven indispensable as a common tongue and measure of time. Here is the Old Roulean system of measuring the hours of the day: Zogblaster Daypic.jpg
