    Look for the last time, a 1 to 10 rating system IS a metric system, and its not my fault that a 10/10 cock is exactly ten inches. If your 4/10 ass has a broblem with it then go write your own system 0 to 25, im sure it will be really popular

          That's exactly the kind of thing that leads to human centric measurements. If football was standardized and popular all over the place 500 years ago we probably would have ballfields as a standard unit of measure. And the unit of measure would be three and a half feet short of the actual standard field size because autistic scientists decided to correct inaccuracies in the very first scientific measurement, but not adjust anything else to fit.

    Imperial is the ideal measuring system for medieval europe based settings.
    >Traditionally, in the Middle Ages, an acre was conceived of as the area of land that could be ploughed by one man using a team of 8 oxen in one day.
    >it is one Chain by One Furlong
    >A furlong is the length that one team of 8 oxen can plow without resting
    >a chain is 1/10th a furlong

    >a meter is the length of the path travelled by light in a vacuum in 1/299792458 of a second.
    Which of these would you rather have to use if you and everyone you know is likely a subsistence farmer? One is based in the real world in a way to make the math you have to do in real life easy and the other is pure nonsense that's only effective if you own an entire 20th century university. If you're in a science fiction setting go metric. Otherwise Imperial is the only thing that makes sense and you would only think otherwise if you're sheltered from the world around you.

        If anything, a Light spell always producing the same amount of light would lead to a unit of measurement based on that. The Light spell can brighten a space that's exactly this wide, so we measure that end to end distance as a single lightmeter. Maybe the entire area that's lit is used as a measurement of volume. Every wizard can replicate this exact amount of light, so this becomes a clean reference for arbitrary measurements.

      That hammering on the definition of a meter is missing the full story. The original definition was the distance between the equator and the poles divided by 10 million, to create a system centered around the natural world rather than man. However over time that definition proved to be inaccurate for certain scientific measurements so this new definition, which is pretty much the same distance but more precisely defined, was introduced.

      That's what happens when you want an accurate system. Ironically the Imperial system is currently also defined in accurate meters rather than bullshit like
      >the width of your thumb
      >the length of your foot
      >a quarter of a glass of beer
      >the distance between your nose and thumb
      If you really want the authentic medieval experience, that's what you go for.

        Now this is the schooling I remember, this fraction of a light-second shit is news to me, metric is based on measurements of the planet, so my thinking up until now was that every planet could have it's own metric system making it just as useless as imperial once earth ceases to be our only home.

    Metric is already subsumed into Imperial, just like all the other systems that made any amount of sense.
    The reason feet don't go cleanly into miles is because feet and miles come from two different systems and both of those systems were adopted into Imperial. Same with metric. We have meters, we just don't use them most of the time.

    >not obscure niche measurements based around farming
    In the imperial vs metric fights people forget that in the past you'd have specific types of measurements based on specific crops in specific seasons in specific regions that used specific types of baskets for harvesting them.

    The difference between imperial and metric in their design is that imperial is meant to be easier for figuring out in your head for individual tasks that don't convert easily between each other, but metric is about being easier to figure out on paper and convert easier between different things.

    A mile is for walking, yards don't translate to walking distances, yards and feet are for how far apart you plant your potatoes or how long the beams for your house are.

    Your medieval fantasy PCs should use a mix of things, but they're not using any standard thing outside of wizard school. Have your wizard using arcane measurements like Celsius and meters, but your barbarian counts on his fingers and measures with his hands.

    Anything else is for your players, and relative to what people at your table use.

        Cups are a self referencing measure from before we had standardization. This is cause most recipes scale infinitely, so long as you maintain the ratio. It doesn't matter what size of cup you use so long as it's two cups of flower to one cup milk and sugar for example.

        But say you've got no phone, no calculator, no ruler, etc.... how do you determine what 1 meter is? how do you teach someone how to measure that accurately? This is why imperial is as it is, an inch was something you could physically reference to in a hurry, and a foot is just a useful distance for everyday use made out of a whole number of those, etc.... you just find whichever finger joint (or whatever) is close to an inch and now you can create a ruler

                Yeah but it wasn't chosen by the people, it's a result of these regulation decisions, I know when I was growing up scales and speedometers were all dual imperial/metric, but I do believe now both are just metric as a standard, but not because customers kept walking in and complaining that there was imperial on their dials (who doesn't like a multipurpose tool?) it's background government shit, like how hindi was made an official language in canada some years back and noone fucking put it in the papers or asked my vote on the matter.

                Please provide any documentation of this happening. The official languages aren't exactly a small thing to change and it's not something you can do clandestinely. Maybe they're making government documents available in Hindi (which is eminently sensible in many areas, along with many other languages).

              Yes anon, the measurement system with a backbone in unflinching scientific bureaucracy would be useless to a cave man, brilliant observation. However that is irrelevant, let me as you a question, how do you arrive at an inch? Because the modern inch does have a set value, same with the foot or mile, it's is exactly the same as the metric system, powered not by intuition or some human centric natural law you stroke your one inch measurement stick to at night, it is equally powered by simple unflinchingly bureaucratic institution. Do you know what things were like before metric? People used inches and feet, and every country had slightly different sizes for what those inches and feet were, it was chaos. There is no holistic "human centric" measurement that applies to all of us equally, there is no greater logic for this in "oh a foot is 5 sheplins, and 12 sheplins make a bogard, and there's 3 bogards in a millit" because no matter what abstractions you try to draw from a reference point, if the reference isn't standardized it's meaningless. so sure, 200 years ago an unwashed German peasant wouldn't be able to say how much a meter was, but they wouldn't be able to tell you what your yard was either.

              But if you must know an abstract equally meaningless way to reach a metter it's about the size of 2 steps for the average man. Go fuck yourself

                That's a fuckton less accurate than going by average male knuckle bones, lmao.
                And you seem to be confusing the germans for the french there.

                Retarded is agreeing with what I say and then pretending I'm arguing about something else entirely to trick yourself into thinking you're a winner.

          >how do you determine what 1 meter is?
          My grandfather taught me a trick for that, a meter is roughly the distance between one shoulder and the opposite extended hand. It’s more useful using ropes though, but for everyday stuff I just eyeball it.
          Still makes conversion between meters and cm easier, because unlike feets and inches, a cm is still one hundredth of a meter no matter the trick I may use to estimate said meter.

            >1/100th
            How do you accurately divide that unit into 100 even bits to determine your arbitrary centimeter?
            My arbitrary foot is twelve knucklebones, I can easily carve a bit of wood into one of those and use that to notch a stick twelve or 36 times.

              I generally don’t eyeball cm, but sure, my index fingernail is one cm wide. Happy?

              The problem with imperial has never been the arbitrariness of the initial unity, a meter is not any less arbitrary than a foot or a yard. The problem with imperial is that a foot, an inch and a yard are incompatible with each other, that’s what makes it a headache to use! You don’t need pen and paper to know how many meters are there in 3.78 km, but try to know how many inches in 7.4 feet and the math is already not that obvious.

                Right, which means metric is for scientific purposes, but imperial is for everyday use.

                You keep saying that, but the rest of the planet does not have issues using metric for every day purposes. You instead keep crashing stuff in space trying to use metric for scientific purposes.

    Inches are exactly the right size for 20-30mm tabletop wargames.

      I agree. I'm not american but I actually use inches and feet for tabletop gaming (and for nothing else)

    Metrick is a mistake because base 10 was a mistake. Simple as.

    As stated before:
    Metric for accuracy, Imperial (at a table top scale) for guesstimation.

    I feel the Ilm, Fulm, Yalm, and Malm are underappreciated takes on fantasy measurement. Allows you to generalize distances with a known similar measurement (imperial) while not actually using said measurement. With the really only important measurement being the Yalm as one stride by a person of average height.

    Honestly, I can see both sides of the metric vs. Imperial argument (though I ultimately prefer the latter), but there is one thing that always annoys me: the existence of the hectare. What the fuck even is a hectare? Why does it need to exist?

      The same reason that litres exist and you don't go immediately to cubic metres (or square kilometres): those're fucking huge.
