ROYAL BANK OF NÚMENDIL | Taxation of Númenost


Recommended Posts



Treasury of the Númenedain, Est. 131 SA


Royal Bank of Númendil

Established as the Office of the Castellan, the Royal Bank of Númendil has served as the treasury of the Númenedain since 110 SA and the founding of the small settlement of Barrowton. The institution would formally institutionalize and assume the moniker of the Royal Bank of Númendil upon the founding of the city of Númenost, and it would further assume all taxation and associated duties for the Exilic Kingdom of Númendil at the charge of His Grace, Tar-Númenatar.

Office of the Castellan
Castellan of Númendil

As chief officer for the bank, the Castellan is responsible for organizing the collection and appropriation of taxes from the general populace and tribute from vassal lords. The Castellan shall also oversee the distribution of property and keys accordingly.


Stewards of Númendil

The Stewards are responsible for the sale and management of stalls, homes, and other properties to parties seeking to purchase them in the absence of the Castellan. 


The Númenedainic Castar

The Castar is the primary currency minted by the bank, represented by coins of pure silver from the mines of Alkayaban. Castars are used by the bank to certify tax payment [See Taxation of Numenost Properties for details]. Additionally, the purchase and return of castars (or other bank-minted denominations) to the bank serves to assist citizens of the kingdom in shielding their hard-earned wealth from the taxations of central mina banking. 

Current Transfer Rate:

1 Castar = 20 Mina

1 Mirian = 100 Mina

1 Baich = 150 Mina


Current Tax Rate:

Númenost City Homes = 1 Castar

Stalls = 1 Castar

Steadfast Farmsteads = 1 Castar

Steadfast Barns = 1 Castar & 1 Stack Leather

Býrrim (Vassals) = 1 Baich


Taxation of Númenost Properties

Taxes shall be collected in Númendilic Castars or other specified supplies deposited into the appropriate boxes in the Royal Bank of Númendil [Located on the north end of Numenost]. This shall occur every Saint’s week ((Wednesdays by 5pm EST)).


Failure to Pay Taxes

Failure to pay taxes will earn citizens a strike which will be tallied in both the tax ledger and on the tax box for the property. Three strikes will result in the owner being evicted and any strikes will be removed upon payment. Citizens MAY pay multiple weeks at once if they are making up multiple strikes.

Ser Alwyn II of House Glennmaer, Castellan of Númendil
