Wealth (cp) is what players use to buy things and currency items are among the most common treasures found in the world. Currency items have a number of different forms, but as soon as the player picks the item up, it’s converted to the nominal values and simply added to the party’s cp total.

For example, a player opens a chest and they see five silver lusces inside. When this is picked up the phrase “Gained 5 silver lusces (15cp).” If displayed. The five actual silver lusce items are destroyed and simply converted to cp added to the party’s total wealth.

Standard Coinage Types

The standard coinage of commerce is the Dyrwoodan copper pand (pahnd, “pawn”), abbreviated as “cp”. This is a high-volume currency used in everyday trade and is the basis for most transactions.

The pand is augmented by the Dyrwoodan gold duc (so-named for the original coins’ portrait of Duc Admeth Hadret), worth 12 pands.

Also somewhat common in the Dyrwood are the Vailian silver lusce (LOO-shay, “fish”), typically worth 3 pands and the suole (SWHO-lay, “sun”), worth 9 pands. Rarely, wealthy people will use the oversized oble (OH-blay, “double”) worth 18 pands.

Glanfathans use relatively crude (but large) copper coins called awld (auld, “knot”) worth 2 pands. They also rarely trade even larger, intricately-carved adra coins called enîach (EH-nee-ach [German ch], “honor”). They aren’t made specifically to be used as currency, but are gifted to people by an anamfath (AH-nahm-fah, “soul prince”, Glanfathan) for noteworthy deeds. They are worth about 60 pands.

Aedyrans use copper coins called skeyt (skayt, “wealth”) worth 1 pand. They also use a large silver coin called fenning (FEH-nihng, “coin”) worth 6 pands and the gold scelling (SHEH-ling) worth 12 pands.
