Keeping your valuable golden sovereigns in your hands is not always the wisest course of action. While leaving the realms will not cause you to lose the gold in your hands (see HELP GOLD), it is still true that certain abilities possessed by players may cause you to be forced to hand it over to them. Keeping your gold in a backpack is certainly safer, but for true safety, the place to keep your gold is in a bank.

In order to use a bank, you must first find a branch of a bank. Banks can be found in each of the major cities and communes. Once there, you may DEPOSIT <however many golden sovereigns>, provided you are holding that many in your hands. WITHDRAW <amount of gold> will withdraw gold from your account.

If you have wealth rivaling an Emperor, you may have spread your accounts among various banks. BANKACCOUNTS will show you a listing of your various accounts, as well as how much gold you have in them.


   Displays the current amounts you have deposited in the various banks.
