Hey guys have been spending the past couple days trying to decrypt these GM messages. Not in language translation, but in their meaning...
" Hear my words if you are in search of truth…The disaster in Hydaelyn is imminent…The time of awakening has come for those who are preparing to tackle the chaos in motion…The future is not immutable… You can still change it…When the sixth sun will have set and the seventh moon shine in the sky, the ocean of clouds poured a rain of fiery flames and shadows fatal burst forth from the depths of the earth…The “Seventh Purification” predicted by Mezaya approaches…You who are in search of truth… wake up and put yourself against the imminent threat…"
The key phrase here is the part about the sixth sun and seventh moon. Now my theory could be a few hours off depending on if i translated the times correctly. I assumed The Lodestone posted the event ending time in Japanese time. Soooo.. Could be a couple hours off but you will get the general idea.
But first lets make sure my math is right:
168 earth hours in an earth week
196 eorzea days in an earth week
32 eorzea days per month
1 eorzea month/ all moons cycle 37.333 hours
full moon hit on 9-17 in game time at 4:20 (ish) central time (all of my non JP earth times will be central)
Lodestone said the event would be over at 5-8 @ 6am, or roughly 157 hours from the point that the moon turned
full. That is 9420 minutes, or 134.5 Eorzea days.
Which means That if my math is correct, the event will end on 1-22 In game time during a half moon cycle (which is the 7th moon phase in the cycle.) IF this is JP time that the event ends in, that would make it Sunday, May 8 @ 6am central. This sounds very strange. I'm hoping its just a time conversion issue from Lodestone. But on that note, it does make it the 7th moon phase.
My other theory is that it would be the 7th day of a month, which would make it roughly sunday @ 11pm-12pm (I am now done using a calculator before my brain melts)
Any Suggestions? I think the hard work is out of the way I just need my math errors fixed, hopefully just time conversions.
