Economy — While many items and treasures may have intrinsic value, a form of promisary trade is all that is permitted in the three establishments of Alvison’s Haven (Northshore Landing, Watcher’s Den, and Zjarn Village). This system is based on “pennants,” which are a sort of “points” used towards the purchase of anything from food and services to supplies and gear. The relative value of a pennant is 1/2 GP in purchasing power. Most merchants will purchase items with pennants at a value of 1/4 GP. Pennants have no physical form, and are only represented as an idea; utilized by transferring an amount from one account to another via promissory notes. Pennants can be earned for performing assigned civic duties. Only notarized “Pennanters” can produce the promissory notes that transfer pennants from one account to another; for this reason, most established merchants in the region are also pennanters as well.
