I know some of you like to play with currency in your milieux — silver standard rather than gold, etc. — so you might find something of interest in this history of what happened when an outsider expoited the giant stone coin-based economy of the island Yap.

I can really imagine the looks on my players faces when their PCs find a vast store of stone pieces.

Me too. Especially GIANT heavy stone coins.

That article is the most fun reading I’ve done all week. Thank you. I had no idea.
In recompense, did you know about the White Rajas of Sarawak?
Delightfully batty collection of CoC type handouts allegedly culled from a novel.

Thanks, Richard. Brooke seems to figure in one the Flashman novels I haven’t read yet. I’ll have to pick it up.
