Do the gods count time in seconds, hours, days, years, or eons?

Things like this matter with countdowns!

In memory of Tara, my beloved Wolfhound-Deerhound cross. Flew away Feb 2016, still missed.

The Gods War pre-dates time itself, so such units are meaningless for the countdown to the Gods War...

Cheers,

Will a replacement F5 key be offered as an add-on during this campaign?

Yelm probably has a lot of hit points and high armour class...

52 minutes between the first two, then 24 minutes between the next two. I call it, it's a logarthurithmic countdown.

I'd send an army of trollkin to dispatch Yelm quicker but alas they haven't been born yet.

What Arthur hasn't said is that the Gods traditionally countdown to -27...

...and they throw in a few new integers for good measure!

I'd say half minus 2, but that would put half the countdown into negative numbers...

Hm, is this some indication that Time doesn't exist until the Great Compromise? Or did Arthur just type the wrong number?
