When I do my mapping for my StormElite campaigns, I was instructed to use this format for creating SW calendars: 30 days in a month, 24 hours in a day, 5 days in a week and 360 days in a standard year. Now whether that's right or not, I don't know.

60 seconds in a minute. 60 minutes in an hour. 24 hours in a day. 5 days in a week. 7 weeks in a month. 368 days in a year (10 months plus three fete weeks and three more holidays.)

All that's from my rulebook (2nd R&E). It says that all these measurements are derived from those on Coruscant.

365 days

5days/7week/10monhts = 350
3 special weeks = 15

Thats a total of 365. THe three hoolidays
(Emperors Day, Rememberance day, and new Years day) is included in the 350 days

3monhts,festival of life,3months,festival of stars,3months, festival och yule, the last month.

Rememberance day is the 31'st day in the 4th month. emperors day is the 31'st day in the 8th month. and the New Years day is the 35'th day in the 10'th month.

In everything I've seen, the three holiday days were separate from the rest of the months. 10 months = 350 days. Plus three weeks = 365 days. Plus the three holidays = 368. And I'm not making that number up. It's in the rule book. 368.

Hi,

Is that the 2nd Ed D20 source book? which page?

Any idea if the festival weeks are actually attached to months so they have a standard day/month/year convention?

michaleg I believe that it's an old d6 book. I know I haven't read it in any of the d20 books I have.

Yeah, the book in question is the D6 core rulebook (Falcon cover).

The fete weeks are not part of the months from what I remember:
Month N (35 days)
Fete Week (10 days)
Month N+1 (35 days)

Attached is a copy of the calendar I found online. Unfortunately the parent site has disappeared, so I can't cite the creator.

But bear in mind that the current EU uses a 12-month calendar; the 10-month calendar hasn't been used for several years. See here (http://blogs.starwars.com/danwallace/3).

I tihnk that would not make much sense. I mean the 12 month idea originates from the moon ( therefore they are called MONth ) and the time the sun needs to "change" direction ( at dusk or dawn ).
However we and obiviously the beings in the SW universe use a number-system based on ten. So a standard calender would make much more sense if you use 10 months and not 12. IMHO, of course.

Hi,

I looked at the calendar attachment, a couple of questions though...

the 36th of the 3rd month falls on the 1st day of the week AND the 1st day of the 4th month also falls on the 1st day of the week.

Same goes for any months that have a feastival day.

What if dates were to be indicated as...

[year].[festival].[month].[day]

ie year 35, festival week 1, day 1 = 35.1.0.1

ie year 35, month 2, day 1 = 35.0.2.1

or swap the place of the week and month?

or if weeks (not months) were used ie

[year].[week].[day]

ie year 35, festival week 1, day 1 = 35.1.1

ie year 35, month 2 (week 9), day 1 = 35.9.1

The weekly system would need to have the festival days as part of the week (ie not as extra days).

That would make each year 5days/week x 7 week/month x 10 months + 3 festival weeks = 73 weeks or 365 days.

and the calendar would be extactly the same each year then as all the days, months weeks line up just that dating is done [year].[week].[day]

Any comments?
