There are four types of coin used in most places in Shapers.
- Copper Bits (CBs) – The lowest form of currency and therefore very common.
- Silver Marks (SMs) are the next denomination. There are 10 CBs to every SM.
- Gold Sovereigns (GSs) aren’t as common, but certainly not out of reach of many. There are 10 SMs to every GS.
- Portal Pieces (PPs) are the highest value coin available. There are 10,000 GSs to every PP. Portal Pieces are made from solidified Shaper Energy and as well as being rare, they display unique properties that are highly sought after by scientists and those sensitive to Shaper Energy.
Every character starts the game with a set of clothes they can wear and 200GS that they can use to buy their starting equipment. You can find a list of items to buy in the Safe Haven Consumer Guide. Assume that everything is available at the prices listed during character creation.
