Wealth and Currency
Tenebris Realm uses a gold standard for all currency. All coins are a type of metal, while those who are paying for larger purchases can use other items. Bartering is incredibly common, as is trading goods for services. The banking system in Tenebris Realm is called The Treasury. Each city has their own associated Vault. All coins are smithed using the same template with minor variations depending on the printing branch. Coins minted within Verdisol, for example, are outlined in green enamel.
Wealth is tracked through Wealth Rating. It is up to the player to track their earned money and wealth level, which is done on your character sheet. Wealth Rating is the measure of your purchasing power within Esterin. Normal goods and services within your means are assumed to be affordable without any impact upon your Wealth Rating. A player's Wealth Rating increases through bounties, events and quests (BEQ).
Wealth is the measure of a character's financial assets, from the quality of their equipment to the pocket change they carry on their person. For each rating, the character is assumed to be able to purchase reasonable goods within those means. Players will need keen haggling skills or be prepared to take the hit to their wealth rating. Buyer beware.
