However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.

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.

A heavy, malleable, ductile, precious, gray-white transition metal, platinum is resistant to corrosion and occurs in some nickel and copper ores along with some native deposits.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Platinum was a strategically valuable metal element worth fifteen to twenty-five credits per gram. It was rumored that an asteroid made entirely of platinum existed in the Hoth Asteroid Field, known as "Kerane's Folly".

When captured for his bounty, Luke Skywalker found himself unable to make a larger counter-offer, unless, he mused, he suddenly stumbled upon a mountain of platinum.

The metal was also found in smokers on Muunilinst and on the planet Goroth Prime[1].

Traveller

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Traveller Wiki - Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far future

Platinum is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Pt and atomic number 78. A heavy, malleable, ductile, precious, grey-white transition metal, platinum is resistant to corrosion and occurs in some nickel and copper ores along with some native deposits. Platinum is used in jewellery, laboratory equipment, electrical contacts, dentistry, and emissions control devices.

Applications

Occurrence

Platinum ore

Platinum is an extremely rare metal, occurring as only 5 ppb in a typical planetary crust.

Platinum is often found free and alloyed with iridium as platiniridium. The platinum arsenide, sperrylite (PtAs2), is a major source of platinum associated with nickel ores. The rare sulfide mineral cooperite, (Pt,Pd,Ni)S, contains platinum along with palladium and nickel.

Platinum, often accompanied by small amounts of other platinum family metals, occurs in alluvial placer deposits.

Platinum is typically produced commercially as a by-product of nickel ore processing. The huge quantities of nickel ore processed makes up for the fact that platinum is present as only 0.5 ppm in the ore.

Precautions

This metal doesn't normally cause health problems due to its unreactive nature. Platinum compounds rarely occur in nature.

Rarity and Color

Platinum's rarity as a metal has caused advertisers to associate it with exclusivity and wealth. "Platinum" credit cards have greater privileges than do "gold" ones. "Platinum awards" are the highest possible, ranking above gold, silver and bronze. For example, a musical album that has sold more than 1,000,000 copies, will be credited as "platinum" (a higher certification of "Diamond" does exist, however). And some products, such as blenders and vehicles, with a silvery-white colour are identified as "platinum". Platinum is considered a precious metal, although its use as such is much more rare than the use of gold or silver. Due to its rarity, platinum is a highly priced metal, more so than gold or silver.
