I have in mind threads of another mini adventure like Teregond for MERP/RM.
What do you think the Estate practices of the Dunedain of Arnor are? Estate as in dying, testate, wills, etc.
The only direct reference seems to be the passing of the crown of Gondor, and the few Queens of Numenor (which was debated/contested).
Post some thoughts please

What, precisely, are you looking for?
If you're looking for the whole shebang, I suggest looking into some Byzantine practices for transferring property familially. Fascinating stuff, and the late Roman and Byzantine empires seem to be our closest analog to the Numenorian descendants.

Yes - I was also discussing on fan modules with a similar theme.
Thoough i wonder personally if Carolinian France (Pepin, Charlemagne ) actually isnt closer. The division of Arnor smacks to me a bit like the HRE under Charles.
I have in mind another adventure like the Teregond in scope. The basis of the premise is the inheritance rights of a lesser female Dunedan and a groups of stout hearted fair swordsmens fighting for her rights on the Angmirim border.

Good point - Arnor is sort of an analog to the successors of the western empire, while Gondor is more like an analog of the successors of the easter empire (Byzantium).
