Canon question- what is the currency called

Recommended Posts

The game sums up loot that isnt goods or jewels "gold". This includes coins.
So i assume "gold" to be the canonical name of the currency.

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.

In LARP currency is normally differentiated by the material, like this horse will cost you 1 gold, 2 silver and 3 copper.
