Working on a scene where my MC goes through papers that were delivered to her after her father's death. (Mother died years before) Set in a fantasy world that draws from medieval times for reference. MC's mother was a soldier who served in a special unit. If she had wages set aside with that unit for her daughter's inheritance purposes, that would be in some kind of bank note form or something, wouldn't it? Some sort of promissory note? Like if MC were to take the note to the person who handles the soldiers wages (would that be the quartermaster?) and presented it to them, they'd be able to give her the money her soldier mom had set aside? I wonder how that would be drafted...anyone know where I could find historical examples of this type of document to look at? I know technically I could make up my own rules for this sort of thing, as it is a fantasy, but I like to do my research first and then spin up my own version. I like to have a groundwork to base my ideas on.
