Proposed Canon

The Shmucker is the primary currency of Erfworld. To date, the other units of currency and barter that have been mentioned are Rands, Coins and Gems; no exchange rates have been indicated.

Shmuckers that belong to a Side are stored in the Side's treasury. Shmuckers that belong to a Warlord or Caster are stored in a personal purse. It is implied that in both cases Shmuckers are not stored as physical objects (e.g. coins), but rather as symbolical means of exchange.

Value

What follows is a list of prices and values that have been mentioned in the comic, ordered by value:

  • Parson's upkeep is "over 1,000 Shmuckers per turn"Erf-b1-p039Same-site.PNG. Stanley seems to regard this as annoyingly expensive, but not utterly outrageous.
