6.10 Banking and Banks

Keeping your valuable golden sovereigns in your hands is not always the wisest course of action. Certain abilities possessed by players may cause you to be forced to hand it over to them. Keeping your gold in a backpack is certainly safer, but for true safety, the place to keep your gold is in a bank. You may also donate credits to a city, guild, or clan at a bank.                                                      

In order to use a bank, you must first find a branch of a bank. Once there, you may DEPOSIT <amount>, provided you are holding that many in your hands. WITHDRAW <gold> will withdraw gold from your account. Note that the bank will exact a 2% withdrawal fee every time you withdraw gold, and that fee will always be at least 1 gold.                                                                 

If you have tremendous wealth, you may have spread your accounts among various banks. BANKACCOUNTS will list all of your accounts, and how much gold you have in them.
