Imports, Exports, and Resources[edit]

Goldemunde Citadel has abundant freshwater, stone, and wealth

The economy is in ruins with the long war. Before the war, the average monthly wage was 5 gold pieces (the basic pay of the army). Now, the average monthly wage is 3 gold pieces (the basic pay of the army). Before the war, magic items were more available as a market item in the major cities (most items of level 1 through 5). Now, the availability of magic items is rare. There are no magic item stores or merchants (only 1st level items are available, when a magic item can be found to buy).

History[edit]

King and Guildmaster Browndigger founds Goldemunde Citadel and changes his name to King Platinum'smith. Battle of Five Stones; Elf Warlord Bealcrest killed and Dwarf King Platinum'smith killed. Platinumaxe the Elfslayer becomes King of Goldemunde Citadel.

Government[edit]

It is governed by claim of strength and victory in combat, victorious-warrior leader, known as the Magnificent Champion. The leader is decided through a direct challenge in deadly combat between victorious leaders/generals. The Magnificent Champion has absolute authority and total power of the state until deposed by another.

There is a 2 gold pieces tax on all merchandise bought or sold, also there is a 5 gold pieces gateway tax on all travel into the city. No mounts of any kind are permitted within the city.

The law of the mine is the Six Stone Laws. In 958 DY, the Dwarven platinum smith and judge Bold Tightfist codified six laws into a civilized system. The six laws are the foundation of all Dwarven legal systems. The Six Stone Laws are against stealing, murder, cheating, false scales, interfering, and affecting property. The Six Stone Laws are often displayed: No stealing or death. No murdering or death. No cheating in business or slavery. No false scales of slavery. No interfering with authorities or imprisonment. No affecting property by diminishing its availability and value or imprisonment.
