Candlemarks

To aid in converting real time to in-game time for the purpose of communication, the term "Candlemark" was created. A candlemark of in-game time, represents an hour of real life time. So if you're supposed to meet someone in a real life hour, you'd ask to meet them in a candlemark.

This also works in fractions. A quarter candlemark is fifteen minutes, half a candlemark is half and hour, and so on.
