Time Passage

How does time in the real world effect the passing of time in NS? I've had my country for about a month now, so is my country (in character) only a month old? Is it a year old? 10 years? Or does the real world have no effect of NS, and you just roleplay how old your country is?

i think you only can roleplay it.

I concur.

Time is fluid, you decide. It was once believed that 1 RL day=1 NS year but The SLAGLands pointed out the various errors to that.

In effect, it's all roleplayed.

Yeah, time is only relative to the amount of roleplaying you do and the course of time in the afore mentioned roleplay. Some people use rigid conversions like "1 RL day = 1 NS month/year/decade", but these are severly flawed.

The whole game is based on FFRP (Free Form Role Play) and therefore its all upto you.

So...basically I concur with the above posts.
