Money is a fundamental necessity for buying and selling things. The amount of money characters possess determines their ability to acquire equipment, and it also serves as a measure of their social level. In the world of Gaia, there are three denominations of money, each with a distinct value. The most common and least valuable are the copper coins (CC). They are used for everday transactions to acquire inexpensive common goods. In some principalities, copper is substituted with iron or bronze, but the value is identical. The second most common coin is the Silver Coin (SC), which is worth 10 copper coins. Finally, the Gold Coin (GC) represents a much higher value; each Gold Coin is worth 100 silver coins. Gold coins are used only for unusually expensive items.
Coins in Gaia are usually of similar size and shape in all its kingdoms and principalities. Generally, they are called "Crowns," and each bears on one face the seal of the Old Empire and on the other the symbol of the principality in which it was minted. Generally, coins can be counted upon to have the same value in any part of Gaia, though there are places where the money of a rival kingdom is not accepted, or is taken only at a discount. Of course, trade doesn't have to be tied exclusively to coinage. Wealth can also be represented by precious stones, land, or titles.
The items listed here are not necessarily intended to be a comprehensive list of objects one can own in the chat, but merely a list of common items bought and sold in the Empire. It is meant to give players an idea of the prices behind objects their characters might have on them. It is also intended for the admin who registers your character to be able to get a rough estimate of your characters value based on what you list in your Possessions. This allows us to prevent paupers from owning pistols or anyone from just claiming they happen to own a castle. Feel free to use the list however for determining characters possessions, though not limited by it. I will also shamelessly admit I compiled this list by searching through numerous Tabletop books and picking out different common items, however all the prices are my own.
