PostSubject: Worlbuilding Sunburst!   Sat Dec 17, 2011 11:28 pm

ShadowLupus asked me an interesting question.

What is the currency used in Sunburst?

Because all you members come from different countries i've tried to make Sunburst pretty ambiguous and open to influences from your various cultures. Other than it's always hot, it can celebrate any national holiday, eat any national specialities, have various cultural fashion trends etc. and the country Sunburst is in will remain unnamed.

But we need some world building! Like, for example, a made-up currency to be used. I'm working on a simple map of the city (but i'm lazy, remind me!) so that's something. There was also something else i was doing, but i've forgotten! OTL Can't have been that important then :/

For the currency i'm thinking we could mash two names together. Like Peseta + dinero = Pesero/Dineta or Pound + Dollars = Pollars LOL

Also other world building stuff.

To names come to mind right off the bat: Nuxxles or Sols. I prefer Sols because it sorta fits with the city's name and all.

Well I've used 2 types of currency in past things before; The first was Glen (Short for Glenete), which was a universal currency in my universe canon xD Though I doubt you'd like to use that. The other was used in an RP was Sence or (Sc), like yunno, 99 Sence? xD

Random Ideas:

Larse (Main Units of 1 ) + Strans (Sub-Units of 100; 1000 -> 1 Larse) (50 Larse; 210 Strans)

Minetro (Units of 100 like yen; 100, 500, 1000, 10000, 50000, 100000)

UCM (Universal Credit Money, Units of 1, no sub units)

Slin, Ares, Chex (100 Slin -> 1 Ares, 100 Ares -> 1 Chex)

Sun Coins (Units of 1; no sub units; a really simple solution)

Solins (same as UCM and Sun Coins, different name)

Alright, we'll go with Sonce and Zon!

There are 100 Sonce in 1 Zon.
(100 sonce -> 1 Zon)

ie. "I had to buy a new apron," Clyde whined. "It cost 30 Zon!"

We should have a relative list of scale then!

Just so people know what's going on...

Like;
Apron : 30 Zon
Banana : 2 Zon / bunch

etc etc.

Basically... Zons are dollars, and Sonce are cents.

I feel stupid just typing that. And no, the above is NOT a question.

I really like the Sonce+Zon thing! *A*
Actually, I just really like world building!!! Probably more than I should, but most of what I've done over the past few years is think of things like this, SO NOW I'M ALL EXCITED [flails about]

My excitement aside, I approve of the currency. I think that's most important thing I can think of for now, though... since, I can't really go crazy with different races and continents, since pretty much everything we need on that matter has been provided, aside from the map on Sunburst.

and, uh...
I think I was going to -- OH!

Out of curiosity, would be too out there if an aquatic character had an underwater home or something?

Well it makes sense really, Sunburst being a toasty place, and there's nearby lakes and beaches, so it's not really too out there :3

Scale list... let's see...

Like;
Cup of coffee = 2 Zon, 99 Sonce
Pair of trainers = 39 Zon 99 Sonce
4GB laptop = 350 Zon, 99 Sonce
A Ford Fiesta = 10,000 Zon
Small house in the suburbs = 150,000 Zon
etc. etc.

I don't see why not. There could be an underwater aquatic complex area in the sea, like a harbour area, for those who like salt and an underwater area in one of the huge ponds in one of the parks for those who don't. I should add it to the map!

@Rains:
Ahh, good! : D
I'll probably give Vince a home on land, and one under the water. The land one's so he can have visitors or a place for a non-aquatic friend to stay or something.

@Llama:
Oh god, yeah. I would imagine that their gills close up on land, to avoid... drowning... but still. o:
Heheh, you're welcome. <x]
