A 'moment' is defined as:

The time between a traffic light turning green, and the guy behind you honking his horn.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

...or any of several other small units of time, all of them small. My preference is 1/60th of a second, as that's what it was on the C64. (Ok, 1/59.94th of a second, really.)
