9 is up, target is reset

Woohoo, chapter 9 is up. I came to a logical stopping point for the chapter, though it's short, waited until midnight on the east coast, and posted that bad boy. No story-in-story this time, but I'll make up for that in Tuesday's installment. Or Farrday, as Temmin and his people would say.

Just because I can, here are the Kingdom's days of the week:

Monday--Ammaday
Tuesday--Farrday
Wednesday--Eddinday
Thursday--Nerrday
Friday--Neyaday
Saturday--Vennaday
Sunday--Paggday

One of the gods doesn't get a day; every night belongs to Harla the Bloody One, so she is skipped. Saturday/Sunday are not a weekend. Weekends as such don't exist, nor is there a regular church-going day in a week. Temple observances are seasonal for everyone and otherwise people go when they feel the need or if they are very observant. Someone devoted to, say, Farr would visit His Temple on Farrday to ask a boon, light a candle or make an offering.

I don't want to say more about the religious system because I want it to unfold organically in the story, but since I started using the day names I thought I should at least explain this much.
