Ptolus LanguagesA language melting pot of races and cultures.
Ptolus Coins & WealthOfficially, all merchants in the Empire of Tarsis are supposed to accept only Imperial coins as currency. Ptolus, however, remains far enough away from the heart of the Empire that most people ignore such regulations. This is particularly true of late, as delvers flood the city with ancient coinage or money minted by dwarves, elves, and even dark elves from the Dungeon. Still, some merchants accept only Imperial currency, and all government facilities demand Imperial coin—including for tax payments. But not to worry, as moneychangers in Oldtown, Midtown, and the two Market districts will convert non-Imperial money into Imperial currency for a 10 percent fee.

Ptolus CalendarTwo moons hang in the night sky. Lunas is a large bluish-white orb, and Rogue is the smaller, more erratic satellite.
To a native, “Undercity” means the parts of Ptolus that happen to lie underground.
