Gorian hide his smile as the greedy merchant accepted the over-sized silver coin and did not offer additional change. “Will that be all, sir?” the Merchant asked, the coin vanishing into his pocket.
“For now,” Gorian nodded taking the packet of candies. He nodded to Maus as he left the store and tapped his waistcoat pocket.
A few minutes later, Gorian was sitting watching the fountain in the market square. Maus settled down next to him and passed over the coin. “Smooth as ice. He even had a couple of other coins in there, I think he was skimming from his employer.”
“Well, greed is it own punishment sometimes,” grinned Gorian. “Shall we find a game of cards?”
“Without doubt, I hear there is one going on in the back room of the Dancing Dog.”
These coins are slightly larger and thicker than a standard silver coin and marked with the numeral three on one side with a variety of designs on the obverse. While not quite three times as heavy as a standard silver coin they do obviously contain at least twice as much and of obvious purity. The coin, however, is resistant to any attempt to clip, shave or cut it, stubbornly retaining all of its silver. It is suspected these coins have some sort of divine origin but if they were created by a god of justice or trickery is unknown.
