18.2.1 GMT - AND OTHER REAL WORLD TIMES

Nearly all times quoted by Lusternia's administration will be quoted in GMT,
which stands for Greenwich Mean Time. This is the standard upon which the 
world's clocks are based. So, because Lusternia is an international game this
is the easiest way of quoting real time. Unfortunately, because of daylight 
savings time, GMT can get confusing, as it does not 'turn its clock ahead'
(or back).

All times here are quoted outside of Daylight Savings Time. If you are in
Daylight Savings Time, you are an hour further ahead relative to GMT.
