So I won't be going far wrong if I mention things like shillings and sixpence. Cheers!

Also try thalers and florins, they're appropriate currency names for a medieval or early modern setting.

Back in the day they often used the same units for money as for weight, as the value was normally derived from a specific amount of a valueable metal, like silver. This is were pound or the german mark comes from. But there is no fixed naming convention and even if there would be, you are not tied to use it.

 

Generally speaking, if you've already played a couple fm's than you can consider everything as canon that turns up more often and is therefore present to you (like the name "Builder" or the city names "Bridgeport" or "Braeden"), whereas canon only means that you would probably confuse players if you are using them in a different way. Everything else is more or less subject to your personal taste and fantasy.

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
