Armageddon/RL time

How much is an IRL day in Arm time? A week?
How much is an IRL week in Arm time? A month?

I always have a hard time figuring out time in Arm and saying how long it's been since I've seen someone. What do you guys say?

A day in Arm time is 1.5 RL hours assuming 10 RL minutes per in game hour. That makes it 16 game days per RL day. An RL week is generally considered a game month though if it actually becomes one is dependent upon many variables. Notably, crashes and how often the mud resets. With each reset, it seems like the game moves forward from five to over a hundred in game days so sometimes, by the end of the week, it's been over a month and others, it's yet to reach a month.

Generally though, I think when people refer to: "I'll see you next week or we'll meet in three weeks in Red Storm." - I think they mean in 1 RL day and 3 RL days though that's open to interpretation. When planning meetings, it may be best to go OOC and set up an RL time because if you go by IC days, you're susceptible to crashes and other time alterers.
ree as a bird and joyfully my heart
Soared up among the rigging, in and out;
Under a cloudless sky the ship rolled on
Like an angel drunk with brilliant sun.
