The various regions in Lusionia use multiple forms of currency, precious metals to precious stones. However, because of the trading agreements between the various nation states most will recognize the currencies of other regions.

The Southern Kingdoms, Eldarin Forest, Dwarven Holdings

For the past five-hundred years, the Southern Kingdoms, along with Eldarin and the Dwarven holdings, have utilized the Nhalam Gold Standard.

Utilized by single unit, gold coins are smithed within the vaults of the Nhalam Mountains by a standard weight of one Trical – the same weight of water that “trickles” off of the Nhalam’s Trical Cave main stalactite, the Hammer of Reilox, in a ten-count.

Other metals are balanced by weight against the value of Gold, and sometimes are adjusted for economic differences.

  • Platinum piece – (10 Gold pieces)
  • Gold piece “Trical”
  • Silver piece – (One tenth of a Gold piece)
  • Copper piece – (One one-hundredth of a Gold piece)

Many tradesmen throughout Lusionia carry their own scales and weights, in order to deter “Faux Tricals,” or gold that has had lead or other metals woven into it to increase its weight.

However, many tradesmen will simply trade goods for goods, and it’s not uncommon for gold Tricals, often just called coins, to be used either to supplement a deal or circumvented altogether.


Empire of Tetradias

In the Empire of Tetradias, the use of gold pieces as standard is common, with silver and copper coins used as supplementary. Unlike the names given by the Southern Kingdoms, however, the dwarven-smithed coins in Tetradias are engraved with specific symbols:

  • Gold piece (“Tooth”) – The symbol of a fang, or tooth
  • Silver piece (“Claw”) – The symbol of a three-clawed slash
  • Copper piece (“Paw”) – The symbol of a panther’s paw

While Southern coins are certainly able to be spent in Tetradias, it’s common for many shops to charge more in “foreign” coins, as well merchants as regarding the users of such coins naturally as outsiders.

The exceptions, of course, are generally traders who have established relationships with the shops, and often trade the coins back and forth freely, to preserve trade agreements and friendships.
