I think that this is a great idea,  however, have different currencies
For example, midgaard and surrounding towns may have gold.  However, some
(less civilized) places could have common items (meat, heh) for currency.
Maybe even special desolate towns that have there own currency.  This could
be quite possible and easy to do I think.  Simply make another item type
called like IS_CURRENCY and write special procedures for it.  You could have
a certain place in the mud that allows for a safety deposit box type thing
(don't call it that) for storing any type of currency.  I think this would
be a cool idea, and if anyone would like to start a project like this, I'm
more than willing to help (I doubt I could do it by myself yet, its that
damn newbie thing).  What you think?
