6.14 Banks and Banking

Keeping your valuable coin in your hands is not always the wisest course of action. 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 money. Keeping your coins in a backpack is certainly safer, but for true safety, the place to keep your money is in a bank.

You may also donate credits to a city or guild 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: Elvandar, Krondor, and Sar-Sargoth. Once there, you may DEPOSIT <however much money>, provided you are holding that many in your hands. WITHDRAW <amount of money> will withdraw funds from your account. For other options, check the Commands section below.


Multiple Accounts
-----------------
If you have wealth rivaling Banath, 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.
