PostSubject: The Coins of the Empire   Sat Feb 27, 2010 6:16 am

From the viewpoint of Player and Dungeon Master alike, a Gold Piece is a Gold Piece is a Gold Piece. And, in this campaign, the Ardonean Empire agrees. Coins of platinum, gold, silver and copper are the Imperial standards of currency, and they are interchangeable among all the Empire's nations as lawful tender; a coin smithed by the elves in forested Fallowvale will spend just as well in the wind-swept villages of Kunyakarova. But the individual nations of the Empire do not share a common coinsmithy, and so each coin--whether platinum, copper or elsewise--bears the make of its homeland. As one might expect, there is a spectrum of variety in the designs of these coins; the only limits to their designs are the mandatory amount of precious metal in each coin, the relative wealth or poverty of its originating country and the mastery and creativity of the nation's coinsmiths.

The only common condition for such coins to be honored in Imperial commerce is that each coin must bear the relief of the simplified form of the Emperor's crown; without this stamp, the coin cannot be legally traded outside of its native province.

Not all nations on the continent of Ardonea are subject to the Empire (or at least, not yet), and outside the Empire the value of Imperial coins may rise, fall or not exist at all, depending on the culture or civilization in question. Though the Imperial Civil War left the former nations of Karkova and Hrothjurgan Major bereft of a united government--and left the Empire too weakened and drained of resources to immediately reclaim them--many among these shattered lands and their disparate settlements will honor the coins of their former allegiance all the same, if only because they presently lack currencies of their own.


(For now, I'm leaving this topic and its posts as placeholders; I have to be at my new job in about four hours, and I'd like to catch some sleep before then. Apologies for all the edited post notes in advance. Neutral )
