6.15 BANKING AND BANKS

Keeping your valuable golden sovereigns in your hands is not always the wisest
course of action. While leaving the realms will not cause you to lose the gold
in your hands (see HELP GOLD), it is still true that certain abilities
possessed by adventurers may cause you to be forced to hand it over to them, as
well as dying will cause you to drop your gold. Keeping your gold in a backpack
is certainly safer, but for true safety, the place to keep your gold is in a
bank.

You may also donate credits to a city or House at a bank.

In order to use a bank, you must first find a branch of a bank. Banks can be
found in each of the major cities: Ashtan, Hashan, Cyrene, Mhaldor, and
Eleusis. You can also find a bank in the southeast of the island of Delos. Once
there, you may DEPOSIT <however many golden sovereigns>, provided you are
holding that many in your hands. WITHDRAW <amount of gold> will withdraw gold
from your account. For other options, check the Commands section below.

To provide an optional reason on deposits and transfers, you must be working
with an amount greater than 1000 gold sovereigns otherwise the clerk will not
make any such log recording (though the transfer/deposit will still be made).


Fees
----
Banks will exact a 0.5% (2% for Delos) withdrawal fee every time you withdraw
or transfer gold. The fee will always be at least 1 gold.


Multiple Accounts
-----------------
If you have wealth rivaling Prospero, you may have spread your accounts among
various banks. BANKACCOUNTS will show you a listing of your various accounts,
as well as how much gold you have in them. These are all separate accounts, and
have nothing to do with each other.
