MeasurementsEdit

Gor has its own system of weights and measures. Each City has a standard "Foot" and "Stone" against which all other length and weight measurements are compared respectively. These City standards are annually brought to the Sardar fairs to be compared with the  Priest-King standard Foot and Stone.
