Season of Peace
The first half of the season of peace brings the most mild and calm weather. Moderate temperatures, the occasional light rain, and refreshing breezes are most common. The second half of the season brings colder temperatures as the region enters winter. Snow isn’t terribly common, but does occur from time to time.

The season of peace is 99 days long, split into the 3 months (33 days each) of Iyova, after Iyo of the Three; Kiforoho, shortened to Kifo, meaning Soul Death, in an ancient dialect of Sunspeak; and Sontev, meaning Long Rest in the same tongue.

Season of Water
The season of water brings the life giving rains to the region, brought on by powerful hurricanes in the bay. During this season, the rains come in large batches of days, and flooding along the river is common, though the farms are used to that and prepared. The Viridescent Shield is battered and high flooded from the hurricanes, but it is often considered to be a season of celebration for those residents.

The season of water is 99 days long, split into the 3 months (33 days each) of Beya, after Beyabeyaga; Biya’mia, often shortened to Biya, meaning Lost Water in a forgotten tongue, believed to belong to one of the inhabitants of lake Aila before the Lost One claimed it; and Ailtwa, meaning Still Waters in the same tongue.

Season of Fire – The season of fire is the season where the sun stands high in the sky, directly over head, every hour of every day of the season. It is the hottest, most brutal time of year. Many people seek out the few water sources throughout Owasiwa and do not stray far from them. In Oasis city, the Season of Fire means a slow down of industry and toil, it is a season where many spend their time in and around Aila, finding solace in her waters.

The season of fire is 99 days long, split into the 3 months (33 days each) of Aztria, named for Azith of the Three; Jua’yeusi, often shorten to Jua, meaning Black Sun in an ancient dialect of Yaxaan; and Vidi, a derivative of the Viridian Shield from where Azith was from.

Season of Wind
The season of wind, the sun moves across the sky, east to west, and with it come the fierce winds. In the mornings, the winds come from the west, heading toward the sea, carrying cooler air. At high noon, the winds come from the frozen south, and while cool, they are the fiercest and strongest of the winds during this season. As the sun begins to set, the winds whip up from the sea, bringing the salt tinged, warmer air with them. While the winds are often a pleasant respite from the stagnant heat of the Season of Fire, they do get incredibly powerful, kicking up sand and dust. Dust storms, sand devils and extremely sudden gusts are common during this time.

The season of wind is 99 days long, split into the 3 months (33 days each) of Fliqor, after Flik of the Three; Haiz’lunak, often shortened to Haiz, meaning Dark Winds in one of the older tongues of the Stone Bones; and Zubo, after Zubora, the Stonetongue name for the great mountain range.
