    Default Multiple Currencies & Their Value

    An issue a game like DAOC will face is that when new items are introduced that can be purchased via currency - other currencies can start to lose their worth.

    Is there any reason not to have a currency conversion NPC?

    I don't mean just one or two, I mean all.

    A one stop shop cash converter

    You could charge a small fee for the service (plat sink) and then you just adjust exchange rates depending on the popularity/ease of access of any particular currency at any given time.


    This is an indirect attempt at popularising zones that would otherwise be overlooked too because you could add different currencies to loot tables they didn't previously exist on.

    I believe there are various means in place to convert certain currencies at the moment but not one NPC that will convert anything into anything.


    Just a thought while bored at work ~

    It's a good idea and it should have happened with the release of this bs dragon campaign

    While we are at it we should consolidate the different subcurrency types and increase the stack limit of all of them to 50k. It's annoying having 10 different times of glass, dragon scales, diamond seals etc.

    Oh is that what that merchant is in DF? Wondered about that, when I was in there last time, but had to scoot before I got skewered by a few wayward mids that were coming up from the depths of DF.

    I think it's something like:

    1)100:100
    2)100:50 (maybe 25?)
    3)100:1 (maybe 50:1?)
