What the title says.
ITT we share ideas about what we think calcified time actually looks like.

Something like ice. It would melt under Judgements gazes.

Feeling kinda dumb for imagining them as crates of hourglasses.

I don't know, an hourglass seems like an appropriate vessel to keep hours in!

I've always imagined Hours looking a little like compressed tea bricks. There's just something appealing about a group of high society types shaving off minutes into their teacups.

We got our answer in the Albion release. They look like gems but they can be woven? Oooo very intriguing.

To be more precise* they're described as a fibrous, salt-like substance found inside geodes. So presumably the "gems" are those geodes, still holding the raw time.

*I may need to go through the tour again to double check this.

Sunless Skies needs engine and speed control mechanics. Have a look at my design proposal for implementing it

You know, because the Aeginae consume time I'm pretty sure Hours are their...excrement.
