Tell you what, I can offer you this right now with an exchange fee of only 20%. What is it you Primes say, time is money?


The main (and only, in the case of the bazaars) currency accepted in The City of Brass is Brass Pieces. Brass Pieces are minted inside the The Minter's House. The minting process uses brass, magic and souls to create the animation of the profile of the veiled Sultan of Efreet upon one side and an image of the city as seen from the Kubri Al Azim wreathed in flames that seem to swirl and flicker when viewed on the other. Seeing a city money changer costs between 2 and 15% [Charisma (ANY) check DC 20, each point over lowers it by 1%] Exchanging more than 5,0000 GP (1,000 BP) per day will invoke a tax of 10% and a waiting period of one week for the exchange to process, most merchants will look the other way and accept gold for a 20% increase in price.


One Brass Piece is equal to five Gold Piece
