"A day's twenty-four hour period" is not concept of any gloranthans, or any real world ancient people, that derived from de facto standard of Greco-romans and its cultural successors from its own benefit. And before 14th Century or so, time 12 counts were divided just by length of day and night, not accurate period of length of whole "1day" (thus 12+12=24).

Orlanthi day begins just after dusk if I remember correctly.

It is game mechanic.

Gradually. But do you want to play it? Or you can save your time simply by dividing seven in game term.

No, see Nick Brooke's site.
