If you can't sell something, kill whoever sells it cheaper and double your price.
- Some advice given to a young trader from an experienced trader.
Money makes the world go round, and that's no different in the Plane of Magic. If you want something then your going to pay for it one way or another. How, is up to you. For now lets just focus on currency.
There's three main forms of currency; raw magic, souls and elemental stones. Each of these have multiple uses:
Raw magic is the base currency and is not very valuable, it is found everywhere but is in high demand due to the fact that it is used to make almost everything.
Souls have a variable cost depending on their quality. A soul's quality is determined by its age and the previous body it lived in. I'll go into more detail about that in a later post. They are used in the creation of some of the more powerful creatures and contain the memories of their previous owners.
Elemental stones are used to create the most powerful items and are therefore very valuable. They can be made using raw magic for a cost of 250,000, but the usual exchange rate is 125,000 magic for one stone. Elemental stones form the heart of elementals, which are creatures more powerful than most Greater Demons. There are four different kinds; earth, air, fire and water. Again, I'll go into more detail about these in a later post.
Cunning use of all three of these currencies will make a demon very powerful; but be careful, not so cunning use can make a demon very dead.
