Credit Transfers - Achaea Online Help

19.4.1 Credit Transfers

To transfer credits to another person:

TRANSFER <x> CREDITS TO <person> FOR <y> GOLD.

To give someone credits for free, specify 'FOR 0 GOLD.' If you specify a
positive number of gold though, the person will have to be online, and will be
asked to confirm that this transfer is OK with him.

Note that this is the TOTAL amount of gold, not the 'per-credit' amount of
gold. So TRANSFER 100 CREDITS TO aeyr FOR 9000 GOLD means you just sold each
credit at 90 gold each. Probably not what you wanted!


Violations of HELP SECONDS
--------------------------
Almost any aid or information that flows between two of your characters is a
violation of HELP SECONDS. You may have multiple characters. Just don't have
them help each other in any way.


The rule for credit transfers
-----------------------------
If you gain/acquire the credits in an In Character manner, then you cannot
transfer them between your seconds. If you gain credits in an Out of Character
manner, then you may transfer them freely.
