Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Gold is a chemical element much prized by Humans, and a major weakness of Cybermen.

The Animus could control beings that were in contact with gold, which led to it controlling the Zarbi. (DW: The Web Planet) The Keratin could similarly use gold to conduct and amplify their psychic powers. (SJAA: The Glittering Storm)

Lady Peinforte dipped her gold-headed arrows in poison as her "calling card". (DW: Silver Nemesis)

Flidor was rich in blue-veined gold (DWA: The Dalek Book), which was used to construct the Dalek Emperor's casing. (DC: Genesis of Evil)

Prospecters flocked to Mal Oreille, mistakenly believing its yellow-algae infested seas to be rich in gold deposits. (BFBS: Missing Adventures: Biology Lesson on Mal Oreille)

Owing to its non-corrosive nature, gold essentially choked the Cybermen's respiratory systems. The glittergun, a weapon used during the Cyber-Wars, fired gold dust at its targets to exploit this weakness. (DW: Earthshock) Gold appeared to affect some varieties of Cybermen in the way that silver affected werewolves, so that gold coins or gold-tipped arrows fired at them had the same effect. (DW: Silver Nemesis). Gold affected the Cybermen of Pete's World before extensive research eliminated the weakness.

During a time period in which the Cybermen had been reduced to small remnant groups wandering around the galaxy, one group tried to take revenge by making a desperate attempt to blow up the remnants of the planet Voga, a planetoid of pure gold that had wandered into the Sol system and become a moon of Jupiter. They hoped that this would disrupt their enemy's supply of the element. (DW: Revenge of the Cybermen)

Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

Gold was a rare mineral on Earth. Most Human economies were based on this metal until the mid-twentieth century. The gold rush of 1848 caused a massive influx of people to San Francisco and northern California. (New Worlds, New Civilizations short story: "At Times of Peril")

Prior to United Federation of Planets contact, gold and silver had no meaning on Capella IV. Starfleet trade ships introduced these materials as currency prior to 2267. (TOS novelization: Friday's Child)

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010
(Redirected to Money article)

From GuildWiki

"Gold" redirects here. For the use of "gold" to describe rare items, see item rarity.

Contents

Money, in the context of Guild Wars, refers to the in-game currency represented by gold and platinum.

Terminology

There are two denominations of money in Guild Wars:

  • The gold piece is the base unit of currency and is represented by the symbol Gold. When quoting prices, it is usually abbreviated to g or the less common gp, although it is sometimes omitted entirely.
    • Example: 250 gold pieces = 250g = 250Gold.
  • The platinum piece is worth 1000 gold pieces and is represented by the symbol Platinum. When quoting prices, it is usually abbreviated to k, referring to the SI prefix kilo, meaning 1000. It can also be abbreviated as p or plat, although these are much less common.
    • Example: 7 platinum = 7k = 7 plat = 7Platinum = 7000Gold

Money is automatically converted between the two denominations. If a character is holding 990 Gold and then picks up a drop of 20 Gold, the character's inventory will show the new money total as 1 Platinum 10 Gold, not 1,010Gold.

Acquisition

Main article: Earning gold

Money is most commonly acquired through loot, either directly as drops of gold pieces or by selling non-monetary loot to merchants or other players.

Other methods of obtaining money include:

  • Completing quests, as many of them include some amount of gold as part of the quest reward.
  • Filling out and turning in books.
  • Farming.

Storage

Each character can carry up to 100 Platinum. Characters can deposit money into the Vault Box, which can hold 1000 Platinum.

Uses

Money can be transferred between players, usually in exchange for an item in trade or as payment for services, such as running.

Money can also be spent at various NPCs throughout the game in exchange for a wide range of goods and services. These include:

Crafters are the most obvious example of gold sinks, mechanisms designed to remove money from the game.

Substitutes

Because a character can only carry 100 Platinum, this places a limit on the amount of money that can be exchanged during a trade. To exceed this limit, various high-value, stackable items are used as monetary substitutes. Up to 7 stacks of 250 items can be traded at a time, vastly increasing the upper limit on overall trade values.

  • Fixed-price substitutes are worth less but offer more stable values.

Halo

There is more information available on this subject at Gold on the English-language Wikipedia.

Gold (pronounced /ˈɡoʊld/) is a chemical element with the symbol Au (Latin: aurum) and an atomic number of 79. It has been a highly sought-after precious metal for coinage, jewelry, and other arts since the beginning of recorded history. In modern times gold is often found as a key component in critical electronics such as those found on air and spacecraft.

Due to its preciousness to Humans, in 2552 a group of ODSTs plotted to steal a large amount of gold bullion from a bank while on a mission in a Covenant-occupied city.[1] Their plan was scuttled however when they discovered a class of schoolchildren and their teacher hiding in the vault. An argument erupted amongst the ODSTs over whether or not the children could allowed to live. The ODSTs turned on one another and several were killed in a point-blank shootout. The children fled while an ODST took the gold, several Forerunner relics, and a nuclear device, lured in the Covenant and the traitorous ODSTs, and detonated the nuke, destroying it all. The entire operation would be halted after receiving word of the Covenant attack on Earth. The UNSC ships were then forced to pull out.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Gold was a strategic metal valued by pirates. Its value averaged ten to fifteen credits per gram. The color of gold also referred to anything that was colored like the metal. It was used to form the Hutt currency Peggats used in the Outer Rim Territories.

The bodies of the Maelibi seemed to be formed from molten gold.

The metal was also found in smokers on Muunilinst.

Contents

Behind the scenes

The metal "aurodium," which first appears in Rogue Planet, was presented as the Star Wars version of gold. The first two letters of aurodium are "Au", which is a common prefix for gold-related words and the periodic symbol for gold; however, gold has been identified simply as "gold" in other sources. There is some confusion as to whether gold and aurodium are identical.

In Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, the strategic resource of gold was replaced with nova crystals.

Tibia

Up to date as of February 05, 2010
(Redirected to Currency article)

From TibiaWiki

Coins are the standard currency used in Tibia. The coins can be made of either gold, platinum, or crystal.

Image:Gold_Coin.gif A gold coin is the most basic coin.
Image:Platinum_Coin.gif A platinum coin is equal to 100 gold coins.
Image:Crystal_Coin.gif A crystal coin is equal to 100 platinum coins, or 10,000 gold coins.

Each coin weighs 0.1 oz.

Gold Coins are dropped by almost every creature on Tibia. Platinum Coins are dropped by the strongest among the new creatures introduced since Winter 2006 update.

Alternatively, you may see amounts followed by the letter k. This likely derives from the latin kilo-, meaning "thousand". For example "5k" means "5,000 gp" (equal to 50 platinum coins). The notation "1M" is often used to mean "1,000,000 gp" (100 crystal coins), however it is more common to see "1kk" (1000 times 1000) to represent "1,000,000 gp".

(Note: Amounts in the "one million" range are typically only mentioned in the context of selling extremely rare items or as a payment demanded in lieu of being hunted.)

You can exchange your coins at any Bank NPC around Tibia.

Since the 2006 winter update, it's also possible to put coins in your Bank Account. Just ask the NPC to 'deposit', and then say the amount of gold, e.g.: 'deposit 15468'. It is also possible to deposit all the money on your possession at once by asking the NPC to 'deposit all'. To receive your own gold from your bank account, just say 'withdraw' and the amount of gold. That way, you can access the gold of your character in every city of Tibia.

Another possibility is transferring gold from one character to another character. Just say 'transfer', the amount of gold, 'to' and the name of that character, e.g.: 'transfer 54879 to <name of character>'. The amount of gold is sent to the character you named. The character must have a vocation in order to receive a transfer.

Tibia Economy

Because of certain safe-guards, inflation basically never occurs in the Tibian worlds. Instead, equipment tends to become cheaper over time as more and more of the stronger equipment is looted from creatures, while the value of runes usually remains somewhat static (a slight rise in price can be noticed on very old worlds).

Over time, some gameworlds became flooded with strong items, forcing the price to unbelievably low values. To counteract this effect, CIP added more shopkeeper NPCs to buy stronger items, such as the Djinns and recently added NPC Rashid (2007 update). There is still a problem with the price of items dropping, but they should never drop below the value that NPCs will pay for them. (sometimes items are sold under the Djinn-price, which is exploited by players who sell those items on to the Djinns to make a profit).

For a time, this same problem affected runes. Especially Ultimate Healing Runes, Great Fireball and Heavy Magic Missile runes. The many Druid Farms that players used to make money were pushing the price of runes down. In the Summer 2005 update, Soul Points were introduced. This caused most druid farms to stop operating (or operate at a slower rate), causing a brief jump in rune prices. At this time, CIP also allowed some NPCs to sell pre-made runes, effectively placing a cap on how high rune prices could go. Currently, rune prices are fairly stable, though higher than they were before the summer 2005 update in some worlds.
