If a store owner wishes to charge differently for their goods than stated on the list that is their prerogative, however, this is a general overview of what the economy may look like. Of course, this is subjective to IC actions and story progression.

The currency is called Novem. They are valued in the numerals of 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, and 100.
Very few outside of higher standing people such as business owners, nobility, guild leads, and dragons would deal with higher valued coins. Only business owners pay tax to the Crown. A base tax of 15% of transactions will be applied to all businesses. This is roleplay flavour only and not actively collected.

Employment in Astrium
Finding employment anywhere in Astrium is easy. If there is a sign that says “Work Available”, you may simply start working at that location. Although some places are owned by an NPC or by the city itself, you can simply walk in and start working, even add your character’s job to your titler to let others know more about your role.
Some places, such as the farm may have an owner who rents the house, but you can still assume a job at these places. If you wish to RP being hired on by the renter you can check the rental box for the home and send the player an IM. If no one is renting the place, you are welcome to rent it yourself. Players are also welcome to take the role of a vendor at the market near the tavern.
Conversely, many players are self-employed. Some are mercenaries, some hunt and gather in the forest, or are perhaps artisans, working out of their homes or hawking their wares while traveling.
This being said, there are a few jobs that do require your character to apply ICly to a member of one of the royal families. These primarily include council positions or personal guards.
Local / Seasonal Goods
Astrium Specific Goods
Goods you’ll find nowhere but Astrium!
Burnaby Berries – Sweet berries, aphrodisiac, red.
Purniple – A pumpkin-like plant, purple. Sort of bitter.
Nicel – Plant used for spices. Smells a bit like sage. Good for healing wounds.
Elkrite- A hard metal mined deep underwater. As valuable as gold but as strong as steel.
These we trade for such things as rare gems not found here, or even cinnamon. The trade fluctuates depending on need and availability, so it’s difficult to predict what may be around.
