The Economy of the Northern Alliance is not very complex, but is upheld by every lord within the borders of the Northern Alliance. Currency is created in Cornerstone at the Kingsvault. The Kingsvault is responsible for creation of currency in accordance with regulation terms published by the King and the King's Advisors.
Basics of the EconomyEdit
The Economy runs using coins known simply as coins. Depending on the metal the coins are made of, their value is variable. For example, a golden coin is worth more than a copper coin.
A Kingsvault Token is a wooden token created by the Kingsvault with authorization by the King. It is worth one object, regardless of the price. The token, after being spent, is split in two pieces by the person who spends it. Merchants can exchange two halves of a token at the Kingsvault for the amount of money the purchased object was worth. A split token cannot be spent. These tokens are rewarded by the King for exceptional service to the
Kingdom. Each Kingsvault token is numbered for tracking. Currently, there are 14 Kingsvault Tokens in circulation and 600 in the Kingsvault which have been redeemed.
