Click Here to Comment on Hunter Black Page 768 – The Dragonbone Purse

Man, sometimes I have to create on the fly. We’d established long ago that the Divine Quintet was made up of relics created by all four of the Younger Gods in tandem. We’d also established that one of the relics was an “Everfull Purse,” although we never used that term. Why would that require all FOUR gods? What would Sentine, the god of the body in its many forms, have to do with the creation of a bag of coins? And now you know why coins once were bone.

I’m frankly exhausted, but for the best of reasons. I unfortunately can’t go into those reasons now, but you will be among the first to know. First family (which includes Will), then Patrons, then you all. Hopefully, it all pays off.

Oooooooooh…mystery!

      You get many, many props for digging this up.

      Reminds me of the Orc Stain comics, by James Stokoe. Where “bone” coins also play a large part of the story.

  • Storel

    So it produces an unlimited amount of… obsolete coinage? If coins are no longer made from bone, then bone coins won’t be usable as money anymore, right?

    Of course, if dragonbone has properties that make it of interest to, say, wizards, then the coins might still be worth a lot — just not as currency.

      No, they’re still accepted as currency. They’re old, but so are buffalo nickels. We haven’t yet revealed their conversion rate…mostly because it hasn’t come up and I haven’t had to give it that much thought.

      • Storel

        Ah, fair enough.

        Although if anybody tried to spend a buffalo nickel nowadays, the cashier would probably either reject it (thinking it was phony) or snap it up to sell to the nearest collector (for many times its face value!).

          Something similar would probably happen with a Dragonbone coin. The average storefront would be loathe to take them, but to those in the know, a Dragonbone coin is worth several times its weight in gold.

            (Note my lack of specificity.)

    • Christopher Gargani

      I had figured based on the pictures that the purse adapted to whatever the current highest denomination of currency is, but maybe I was wrong about that.

  • Christopher Gargani

    So now we know where four of the five are, and this increases the chances that Tzetze has the “chess” set. (Which for some reason always felt like the one he had.)

    • http://www.hunterblackcomics.com/ Justin Peniston

      FOUR of the five? I count three, and that’s assuming that certain hooded strangers know what they’re talking about. Where’s the fourth?

      • Christopher Gargani

        The Avenger, the lute, the Dragonbone Purse, and whatever Tzetze has.

        This of course makes some basic assumptions about honesty (etc), which maybe isn’t the best idea in a fantasy noir webcomic, but it’s really all we have to go on.

        • http://www.hunterblackcomics.com/ Justin Peniston

          Ah yes, Tzetzem’Tze’Tzemoze does make a leading statement suggesting that he has the fourth piece.
