Minute 60 Seconds 100 Seconds

Year 365.25 Days 393.2 Days
Year (sec) 345,575,000 Seconds 314,560,000 Seconds

Compared to Earth time, once you break it all down, the In Extremis year is only a few Earth days shorter than an Earth year. The length of a second is the highest measure of time that does not change, but all measurements of time higher than a second are adjusted to fit the fact that 100 seconds is a minute in the In Extremis universe.
Unlike Earth time, where 60 seconds is a minute, 60 minutes is an hour, In Extremis makes wide use of the metric system, even in time- where 100 seconds is a minute and 100 minutes is an hour.

Calendar Year

In Extremis Calendar Year

Pwuvas Pwu. 42

Apuvas Apu. 27

The calendar year is based off of prefixes and suffixes of the language of the Deities. -uvas is the suffix for month, and each month has a different prefix based on what the month is named after. The calendar was created sometime in 3 A.T., by the early OLAH when creating a governing body. Evtuvas and Esiuvas are known as the twin months due to their identical length, and also when the original OLAH headquarters experienced the longest nights out of the year, as it was in winter. Ontauvas was originally 17 straight days of celebrating the Deities, though the celebration fell out of fashion around the 300s A.T. Bosuvas is known as fear month, because at the time of the calendar’s creation, the end of the year always seemed to incite fear in most species, not knowing whether or not the Deities would allow them another year, a fear that lingered from the “Time Restart“. Every 5 years, Bosuvas gets another day to account for the .2 days that go by each year
