Vocabulary and Kennings
Gazetteer of the world of Midhgardhur
The coinage used in the North was adapted from old Norrani standards of weights and measures. It is similar to the standard Pathfinder system, except that platinum is not used at all (larger amounts of gold are used instead).
|Pathfinder Coinage||Northern Equivalent||abbreviation|
|copper piece||copper pennigur (pl. pennigar)||cp.|
|silver piece||silver pennigur (pl. pennigar)||sp.|
|gold piece||gold eyrir (pl. aurar)||none (aurar)|
|platinum piece||gold mark||none (marks)|
The majority of people in the North do everyday business in barter of goods and services rather than coin. This is especially true in rural areas.
Calendar and Timekeeping
Midhgardhur has essentially the same 24-hour day and 365-day year that Earth has, and for}convenience can be said to use an almost identical calendar. The years are counted N.Y. (Norrani Years, years from the founding of the Norrani Imperium) in most of the known world. Anything before the founding of the Norrani Imperium is noted as B.E. (Before the Empire).
A brief history of the world of Midhgardhur, mostly from the perspective of the North, is provided for reference. It is not necessary to study this history extensively in order to play in and enjoy the “Heroes of Midhgardhur” campaign (most characters in the North tend to be ignorant of the larger history of the world unless they have specifically studied it, anyway).
The North also has common Holidays celebrated across its many lands!
