The Ratio of Alagaesian Money: What Should the Value Be?

Post by Sage of Dragon Age on Thu 7 Oct - 10:51:21

Ok, so some of you may know that we are using one specific type of coin in the game called the "Crown" (which sounds a bit British, but thats besides the point).

The only thing left to determine is: What should the value of each Crown be?

P.S. If you dont know, think of them in American currency (im saying American currency because its the only one that im familiar with).

Ex. 1Cr = 1$

Not yet. I asked this on the General cycle descusion.

What is the breakdown of the Crown. I do not believe the crown is the lowest coin. What are the lower coins, ETC.?

This is a good topic. I've been wondering this for months, I think I may have asked it also. I think Crowns should be quite common, like maybe 1C=0.10US$

Yeah, but what I think will end up happening is 1 crown = $1 type deal. or 1 gp, something like that. Simple and easy.

Here's some stuff from Wikipedia,

A shilling was worth 5 pence, so a crown was therefore 25 pence or 0.396974 USD today.
In decreasing order (I think), farthing being worth the most, guinea the least.

Farthing - A farthing (derived from the Anglo-Saxon feorthing, a fourthling or fourth part[1]) was an English coin worth one quarter of a penny, 1/960 of a pound sterling. Such coins were first minted in England in the 13th century, and continued to be used until 31 December 1960, when they ceased to be legal tender.

King Henry VIII (1509–1547) issued farthings struck at the London mint, in all three of his coinages, although they are all extremely rare. The obverse of the first coinage (1509–1526) has the inscription HENRIC DI GRA REX around a portcullis; while the second coinage (1526–1544) has the legend RUTILANS ROSA – a dazzling rose – around the portcullis, and the reverse has the legend DEO GRACIAS around a long cross. Farthings of the second coinage were also struck at Canterbury (distinguished by a Catherine Wheel mintmark). The third coinage (1544–1547) was produced in base silver and has the legend h D G RUTIL ROSA around a rose, and the reverse legend DEO GRACIAS around a long cross with one pellet in each quarter.

Half crown - The half crown was a denomination of British money worth two shillings and sixpence, being one-eighth of a pound and half of a crown. The half crown was first issued in 1549, in the reign of Edward VI.

Crown - The crown, originally known as the "crown of the double rose", was an English coin introduced as part of King Henry VIII's monetary reform of 1526 with the value of 5 shillings.

One shilling - In the United Kingdom, the shilling was a coin used from the reign of Henry VII until decimalisation in 1971. Before decimalisation there were twenty shillings to the pound and twelve pence to the shilling, and thus 240 pence to the pound.

Guinea - The first guinea was produced on 6 February 1663, and was made legal currency by a Proclamation of 27 March 1663. 44½ guineas would be made from one Troy pound of 11/12 finest gold, each weighing 129.4 grains.

I don't think that these were used in the IC - it was pretty much crowns and gold...

Seeing as there isn't much more to add, I'll close the topic - but feel free to PM me if you want to add anything or want me to re-open it.

Oh, that was from Inheritagon, who also closed the thread since there was nothing more to discuss. Honestly, I did not expect it worked out so quickly. I expected a bit of arguing over things.

Ok, sounds good to me since we're only using crowns and nothing else.

Updated decision:

1 Crown = 1 US Dollar.

An extremely good horse that a man did not want to part with was worth 200 crowns.
How much can ou get for a good horse today? $500-$1000 (US) and we dont use them like they did.
In the books, only crowns as currency have been mentioned.

No, others were mentioned, always smaller than the crown. The crown seemed to be the standard like the 1 dollar bill for us. I think 1 Crown = 1 Dollar is a fair adjustment. Money can be either hard to obtain, lowering prices, or easy to obtain and higher prices. I am thinking hard to obtain and lower prices. The Crown seems to be more like 20 dollarsfor us, not one.

Good good. I like that. Just so long as its not like some of stupid iTouch games where you have to buy game money with REAL money or find some game money, but its REALLY REALLY hard to find! lol! I know its not like that, but thats just a worse case scenario.

Oh yeah. No, all it means is that when a crowns are dropped, it is going to be like 1-3 usually. Not like 60+ it can easily be in RS. You may have things that drop alot, but it will be rare and high level.

No,we will only use the Crown. However, we need to descide how much the crown is going to be worth. If it is alot, prices will stay low, but it will be harder to obtain them. If it is easy, prices will be high. It balances things out, not hard, just ahve to make a few descisions.
