Irah - Gold Rush
Gold and Wealth
Gold, in Irah, is not just valued because of its beauty. It was found in the Age of Discovery that gold is magic in physical form, and it can be used to fuel magic or magical items. It requires a little processing, but with this discovery gold really became the standard of wealth. With it’s new found use, many nations have begun to issue paper currency, or use other forms of wealth. Gold is still the standard in wealth, however.
The value of magic items are $6 for every gp in value listed on the pathfinder site.
