Current role-playing month is Month 3, Year 12.

Traditionally, the seventh day of the week was a restday. When the pass began and half the population moved north, people have to work double shifts. Because Thread doesn’t wait for anyone, the settlers couldn’t afford to have a universal rest day. Workers now work longer hours for four days and then rest on the fifth. The exception is students and teachers, who have shorter days but work and attend class six days a week and take their rest day on the seventh day. Remember, New Landing is in the south, so the seasons are flip-flopped. It would be summer during New Years!

School is divided into four quarters with grade advancements at each new year. There are two week breaks between each quarter to give teachers time to grade final exams and projects.

Because resources are tight, the holds further than a few hundred miles from New Landing were abandoned and Thread is no longer fought there. Below is a chart mapping out the locations of recent falls.

Thank you Marasai for the Thread Charts!
