    We need a standardized measuring system. As a devout Yortian, I figured I would take it upon myself to start the thread that sorted this out.

    Distance:
    small yort – inch
    yort – foot
    big yort – yard
    traveling yort- mile

    volume:
    who really measures volume in an rpg?

    weight: (Done on the what one man can lift scale)
    light yort – a gram
    yort – pound
    heavy yort – 50 pounds
    screw this I am leaving- anything over 200lbs.

    I hope this clears everything up.

    Obviously you’ve never played in my D&D group when we get a Decanter of Endless Water.

    OKAY THESE ARE UNDEAD SEA BASS. I KNOW IT WAS FUN EARLIER, BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH WATER THERE IS. SURE, GHOST BASS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT GHOST BASS EAT. WELL IF YOU BROUGHT SOME GHOST WORMS. I HATE YOU SO MUCH.

    That’s it?!? What about time? Temperature? Luminosity? Relative attractiveness of members of your same species? Of other specieses? Nipple length?

    And since when do we mix grams and pounds anyway?

    Well the units for those would be yorts, yorts, yorts, yorts, yorts and yorts

    You are correct that should be yorts and YORTS!

    Time
    Quick Yorts- seconds
    Yorts – Minutes
    Long Yorts- Hours

    Nipple length is done in Short Yorts

    Luminosity is in yorts.

    Noise is in Loud yorts and Quiet Yorts

    The mixing of the grams and the pounds happened in the way long ago, their offspring is bizarre and deformed, like everything else. They do not like to talk about it much so most people try not to stare too long.

    Temp- change the word Celsius to Yort. Stuff freezes at 0 and boils at 100 yorts.

    I am guessing by attractiveness within species and cross species you refer to a hardness scale, it is the same with talc at 1 and diamond at 10, the proper term though is Yort, not moh.

    I AM CHANGING INCHES TO SHORT YORTS!!! (it just sounds cooler that way)

    Volume shall be measured by the amount of liquid the great yort can comfortably carry in his facial cheeks (the alternatives are discusting), about 1 pint (1 cup per cheek)

    1 cup- half yort
    pint- yort
    quart- 2 yorts
    gallon- 8 yorts

    They are going to kick you out of the Yortians! Adding an adjective completely defeats the concept of Yort!

    Not really, In the original Low Life book they refer to Big Yorts and Little Yorts as distances. This is just a refining of the idea, to make sure everyone is on the same page.

    Sorry, I must retract the measurements, it is already gospel that the term for an inch is not short yort (though I like it more) but little yort, and a mile is a big yort.

    I think it works like Klingon or Japanese – you get the scale from context: “My sword is 30 yorts long”, “I rode 15 yorts today.” “Range is 20 yorts”.

    How about Nipple Length? I can see this one getting tricky.

    Yort is Oiths Smurf. It is just used for everything! 😯

    Ok we don’t need descriptors on the yorts.

    What about oith-quakes?
    And hurricanes and himmicanes?
    And two-hour-nadoes?
    And taxes?
    And the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
    And, and…
