Currency in Mercia is controlled accordingly. There are five main systems in use, with a few minor systems that are also included. The banks in use are controlled mainly by leprachauns who are known to be good at handling with gold.

The Adrian Ox[]

Translated into English terms, the currency used in nearly all human countries is the Adrian Ox. It was a simple system to easily figure out how much an exchange was. Before the inflation and rapid deflation of the Ox a number fo tiems in history, the Ox originally was worth an exchange for an actual Ox, along with the other coins.


There are 80 Wheats in a Pig, and 8 Pigs in an Ox. These are the three main parts of the currency, where there are 1 Wheat coins, 2 Wheat Coins, 4 Wheat Coins, 8 Wheat Coins and so on (this does obey the octimal system in use by the Hadri). The normal increasing amount is 1, 2, 4, 10 (in octimal terms). The coins used for these have pictures depictign old coisn that had different worths but are no longer in use.

The conversion rate for the English Pound is £0.69(34) to the Pig or £5.55 to the Ox. Although this seems a bit high, a bag of flour usually costs 30wts.

The normal symbol for the currency is wts (Wheats), pgs (Pigs) and X (Oxes). 3X45wts is 3 Oxes and 45 wheats which equals about £5.94.
