I just did a thing… and you read that right- if you created a character within 2 RL days of launch (by midnight 9/13/18 GMT), you will be 189 years old in about 26 RL hours…
Actually I took some liberties with this calendar to round things off, so you’d be closer to 220 years if I used the parameters of the Gregorian Calendar… but who’s to say how long it takes our planets to revolve around the sun anyway? Allow me to explain the Oortian Calendar:
According to @lucadeltodecso, 1 Boundless day = 24 Earth minutes. That means 1 RL day = 60 Boundless days, 6 RL = 360 in game. I decided for major convenience that I’d make each RL week equal 1 year in game, so Oortiversal years are 14 months of 30 days apiece, totaling 420 days.
So to put it simply, as of server midnight tomorrow, 189 RL weeks will have passed since the beginning of the first full week of launch. Ergo, the year will be 189 PGT (Post-Great Transmigration).
I’m open to suggestions on the formula but can’t imagine anything more convenient than 1 week = 1 year. I’ll definitely accept any suggestion I like more than “PGT”, which was the best I could think of while doing the rest. “Sorissian Calendar” isn’t set in stone either. Above both of these though, I want names for the 14 months. They could be named after devs, influential players (bad idea?), planets, items, whatever. Have at it!
