Calendar

It is unknown how long history is. It is known that no elf has, nor parent of any elf had any
memory of The Great Sundering. All that is known is that over three centuries ago, Pesch astronomers started mapping the skies and marking the years using the few shreds of information that survived to that time. Many did not have calendars, and those that did had to adapt to those making the trades. So this is the marked calendar used by most in this time.

The new year is marked on the day after Winter Solstice. Mid year being the Summer Solstice. Each solstice and equinox take place outside of the calendar months. New days were added to make the maths work for the sailors.

The Moons

There are two moons on Hamon, one red, one white. The red moon, called Father, Father Flame, The Red Father and variations is predominant during the Summer months. Over Autumn, he moves behind the white moon called Mother, Ice Mother, and other variations. Then again in Spring, she moves behind the red. The Moons are full once a month, with there being barely a sign of the other at the height of Summer and Winter. This means that there is usually a red heated glow to Summer nights and a cold bleak glow in the Winter.

Festivals

Different races, tribes and cities each have different customs and traditons performed on different days. Some involve celebrations, others sacrifice. The tapestry of tradition is as diverse as the peoples.

Coins and Currency

The first change is the introduction of the One Tenth Piece, or Chit. The Chit is a small coin valued at 1/10th of a copper coin. Some kingdoms mint copper coins that can be broken into 10 pieces, some mint small copper rings, other tiny coins. Following on from that:

Mundane Items and Equipment

All basic equipment items, services, fees and the like are worth 1/10th their current value, except following the material rules.

Material Rules

Steel is a rare and valuable commodity for few still remember the secret of forging, and few of those are willing to share it. Almost all items are made with replacement materials in stead of steel. Bone, wood and obsidian weapons and armour are commonplace.

Below are the bonus and cost modifiers for alternate materials. The price variance applies to the PHB list price for the basic item. Therefore a Steel Longsword is still worth 15gp, however gold is now worth 10 times what it was.
