Campaign Languages

Nearly all realms that fall within the Imperia region are diglossic: speaking the common tongue for official purposes, or for foreigners, and their local tongue for casual or private conversation (and sometimes when cursing). In the realms of the non-human races, the population tends to speak its own language for all purposes, but are usually capable of also speaking Generic to foreigners. Non-human languages also tend to be more homogenous.

  • Common (AKA Generic)
  • Imperial (=Latin)
  • Elvish (=Tolkien)
  • Dwarvish (=Tolkien)
  • Darktongue (=Tolkien "Black Speech")
  • National Languages (Alsandi, Antagonese, Marinese, Naborish, Poorish, Vesterish, Raideric, etc.)
  • Others TBD…

Distance

Rod
The rod is a historical unit of length equal to 5½ yards. It may have originated from the typical length of a mediaeval ox-goad.
Chain
4 rods (66 feet or 22 yards).
Furlong
(meaning furrow length) the distance a team of oxen could plough without resting. This was standardised to be exactly 40 rods or 10 chains.
Acre
four by 40 rods. An acre was the amount of land tillable by one man behind one ox in one day. Traditional acres were long and narrow due to the difficulty in turning the plough and the value of river front access.
Mile
8 furlongs
League
the distance a person could walk in an hour, most commonly defined as three miles.
