Icarus is slightly smaller than Earth and has a lesser axial tilt.
This means that Icarus has shorter years (320 days), shorter days (22
hours, or 24 'hours' that last 55 minutes) and that it's seasons aren't as extreme when you advance more
to the poles. Basically, most of Icarus has a temperate climate.
Icarus has a year of 320 days which is divided into 8 demi-seasons or
"months" (early spring, late spring, early/late summer, early/late
fall and early/late winter) of 40 days each. Seasons are fairly mild
but most places still get snow (or at least sleet) in winter.
Basic time system is determined by the sun and goes as follows:
Just before dawn, this is the time
most of the people wake up (unless they're fortunate enough to be
rich in which case they can sleep in).
After Dawn, with the sun roughly 10 degrees above the horizon. For most
people on Icarus this is breakfast time, but farmers would already
be out on the fields at this hour, while richer people might just
be rolling out of bed.
With the hours passing and
the sun at it's Zenith, people make time for lunch and get out of
the midday sun in the hotter seasons.
Dusk, with the sun about to
go down, most people are
getting ready to turn in at this time since there'll be little
light to go by until the next daybreak (candles are expensive you
The sun has now completely
set and it's very very dark outside. Every sane person would stay
inside since most Knights and Sherrifs are off duty and only a
minimal night patrol will be keeping the peace.
The time when one day becomes
When the humans crashlanded on Icarus, they started a new timeline,
calling that event the start of year 0. As the settlers organized
themselves, paired draks and started making a life for themselves, it
is believed that the first castles appeared around 50 years AC (after
crash). Sidra Castle was in full swing at around 100 AD, but then fell
into ruin, closely followed by De Corvo and Mi'ihen at around 150-180
AD. Currently Icarian timeline is in the early 200's AD.
