6.15 BANKING AND BANKS

Keeping your valuable golden sovereigns in your hands is not always the wisest
course of action. Dying or quitting will cause you to lose it (see HELP GOLD),
and certain abilities possessed by players may cause you to be forced to hand
it over to them. Keeping your gold in a backpack is certainly safer, but for
true safety, the place to keep your gold is in a bank.

In order to use a bank, you must first find a branch of a bank. Once there,
you may DEPOSIT <however many golden sovereigns>, provided you are holding
that many in your hands. WITHDRAW <gold> will withdraw gold from your account.
Note that the bank will exact a 2% withdrawal fee every time you withdraw gold,
and that fee will always be at least 1 gold.

If you have wealth rivaling Kisaf, you may have spread your accounts among
various banks. BANKACCOUNTS will show you a listing of your various accounts,
and how much gold you have in them.

To deposit gold in the account of an organisation, such as your guild, you
can DEPOSIT <however many golden sovereigns> <organisation name>. So to
donate 500 gp to the Wardancers, you would DEPOSIT 500 WARDANCERS.

Those with sufficient authority in an organisation can withdraw funds from the organizational bank account using WITHDRAW <amount> <organization> [AS <position>] <reason>. The position only needs to be specified for guilds.
