Methodology

Timekeeping in Dereth refers to two separate and incompatible systems: the in-game map calendar and the rate at which events progress in the story of Asheron's Call as told through written lore material. The in-game calendar functions according to a 2 hour and 7 minute day, greatly exceeding the real-time clock, and typically displays dates in the hundreds of Portal Years which contradicts established dates in lore. Due the this incompatibility, the Asheron's Call development team "decided that for the purposes of the story, one month IRL equals one month in game."

Following the logic of real and game months being equivalent, this calculator retains most aspects of the real-life Gregorian calendar, with years divided into twelve months. The point of deviation occurs at the need to fit 30 days within every month and 360 days into a year, following the conventions of the Roulean calendar brought with the Isparians to Dereth. To achieve this, the calculator divides the days in the current real-world month by 30, stretching or shrinking each day uniformly across the month. These fractions of the month are then used as the basis to calculate the remaining Roulean time units: 5 weeks in a month, 6 days in a week, and 16 hours in a day. In addition, while units of time smaller than hours are referenced in lore, their quantities and divisons are unknown, thus they are omitted from this calculator.

The downside of this method is that the amount of time per day will vary throughout the year during months with greater or fewer than 30 days. As a result, this system does not attempt to be a fully functional calendar in its own right, but only serves to translate real-world moments of time into the Derethian vernacular.
