GOLD AND MONEY - Lusternia Online Help

7.2 GOLD AND MONEY

Gold is the currency of the land. Found in the form of golden sovereigns,
it is almost universally accepted as payment for goods and services. It is the
coin of the realm, the money we use to buy and sell.

In order to see how much gold you have, type I or INVENTORY. This will
show you the amount of gold in your hands. If your gold is in your
backpack or another container, you must PROBE that container to see how
much gold it contains.

Dealing with gold is a bit different from dealing with other items. When
giving, dropping, or putting gold, you specify the number of gold directly 
before the word gold. So, for instance: GIVE 100 GOLD TO HAJAMIN

Gold can be stolen. If you do not want this to happen (and who does?), you
should store your gold in a backpack, or, if you want more safety, in a bank.


GAINING MONEY
-------------
Gaining money (sovereigns, or just gold) is always a priority for new
adventurers, as they will need, in time, to buy a large variety of items. The
best way for a new adventurer to gain money, aside from simply being given it
by a larger adventurer, is to assist in ridding one of the cities of those
eternal pests, rats. See HELP RATS for more details.

There are, of course, other ways to make money in Lusternia. For example, there
are numerous quests which will make you money as well as experience. You
would do well to explore the land to discover these.
