[Ennead Games] Empire Builder: Currency Generator Ennead Games

Currency, it is has been said, is the oil by which the wheels of empires turn. It pays for goods, services and more. Any kingdom or empire needs its own currency; the question is, what is it like?

The Currency Generator is here to help you design and make up a currency for your empire or kingdoms. You may have the name but need to know what it looks like. You could have its look but need to decide what the coin your party has found is actually worth

There are 8 aspects to the currency generator, with 2 optional ones;

  • Denominations/Value – What is each bit of money worth?
  • Images – Does your currency have an image on it?
  • Material – What is the money made from?
  • Name – What is the currency called?
  • Security – What measures, if any, are taken to deal with fakes and fraud?
  • Shape – What shape is your money? Square, round or something else?
  • Size – How big is the currency?
  • Text – Is there any text to be found on it?
  • Type/format – What format does the currency take?
  • Other Details/Quirks/Features – A d100 list of options for individual coins and/or your currency

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
