Crowns and Commons

The main currency of the kingdoms is the crown, a small gold coin that can be exchanged at any reputable merchant for goods and services. The crown has a single denomination, the common, which is a small copper coin worth 1/100th of a crown. All of the equipment throughout this chapter has an associated average value in crowns (or commons) to give narrators and players a rough idea of its value. A narrator may opt to change the value of any item at a merchant in any way that is appropriate (for example, a scarcity of metal from a local mine will increase the average cost of weapons for a time).
