THE R'UNORIAN CURRENCY

Currency in R'unor is a strictly monitored enterprise, controlled by the Imperial Court, with high penalties on those who tamper with the currency. Any form of alteration (milling or filing the edges of coins) or counterfitting (adultering the metal of coins with lesser material) is punishable with the loss of a foot and a brand on the left hand if discovered. Merchants and money changers who deliberately give false coins to their customers are punished by seizure of property by the crown and imprisonment.
