Campaign of the Month: February 2014
The basic currency shared by these 12 empires is the marque, a monetary hold over from the Founder Races homeworld. It was the coin being used during peace time talks and in recent years, there has
been a trend to engrave runes or mystic symbols as the main decoration of marque coins. There are always a special run made for each ruler of one of the twelve empires when a change in power occurs commemorating the event, typically a new coronation or the election to a group ruling body such as the Elector Princes of the Vilgard Federation.
Marques are noted for having angular inter-designs on them that correlate to their value. A 30 gold piece coin, for example, will have a triangle bordering both faces. There are seven denominations of gold marques (mq): 10(circle), 30(triangle), 40(square), 50(pentagon), 60(hexagon), 80(octagon), and 100(decagon). There are also six denominations of silver marques, each of which is worth one-tenth of their gold counter part: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8.
