Thanks Morgoth. I had some trouble running MeisterGeister before,but I'll try again. Maybe I can work it out.
Just in case, is there another tool available?

This website could help you, if you at least understand some German. Otherwise Google Translater does...

I don't see why the setting adopted a 7 day week, which is very Earth centric. It's a neat 30 day month, why not a 10 day sequence, or 5, what ever fits in the 30 days per month evenly.

Ich think this was set before anyone thought about such Things, back in the '80s :D

But you could also start with "Why even take 365 days a year?" ;)

In Myranor there is another system, though. They also have 365 days, but a different month and week system.

Other question... why not? Why should it not have 7 days cycle? I guess it is so easier to use and understand for the players. The time in TDE is running in real-time. I mean 1 year in TDE is 1 year in the real world. By using the same calendar system it prevents it is too complicated with the conversion.

Also keep in mind that 7-day weeks are based on the phases of the moon, they're not just arbitrary units of time.

Dere, like earth, has a moon called Mada with (mostly) similar phases. Of course you could decide to do things differently when creating the game world, but if you take away the moon or change the duration of its phases you're intentionally making the setting feel alien. This may work well for a setting that's meant to feel foreign but I think would be out of place for a low fantasy setting like TDE.

So this question remained unanswered. Can anyone help?
