$ The Gatherers $

All clergy of the mighty god Galduron, Lord of Wealth and Finance, have the common attribute of an overwhelmingly precise understanding of the principles of value and fiscal policy. In line with these traits, Galduron grants his priests the use of an interdimensional portal to the vault of the Temple of Galduron in Sanctuary. The portal takes the form of a golden hoop, which allows Gatherers can place items within and thereby transport them to the vault, where the divinity of Galduron will transmute them directly into their proper value in gold coins. See 'help hoop' for details.

In order to maintain the favor of Galduron, all priests must maintain a certain level of value either in the bank or on their person, in the form of both coinage and the value of carried objects. Those who fail to maintain the favor of Galduron in this manner will be stricken with illnesses as the ailments of their finances are reflected in their bodies and spirits.

Lastly, Gatherers may perform religious devotions for others, known simply as 'banking services', and use the sacred litanies of Galduron to withdraw gold from or desposit gold into Galduron's divine realm. For additional details, see 'help banking services'.

You buzz, 'I wish to devote myself to Jinx' in chitteringly-accented Anglic.

Change #6439
Galduron's Vault (also known as the place where things go when Gatherers put them in the hoop) now transforms objects into wealth automatically when they are placed in the vault. Caution should be taken not to place things in the hoop that you want to continue existing as things other than gold coins. The amount of gold produced by this effect is, on average, roughly what you would get from selling the items to an indifferent vendor with moderate parity in one's respective haggling skills (ie a roughly average amount relative to what is possible for an expert haggler/trader).
