- "You have found a bag of thalers. When you have enough thalers you can open chests containing valuable items."
- ―Hint tool tip.
The pouches, bags, and sacks contain various amounts of Thalers, ranging from 10 to 50. When picking up a bag of Thalers, the hint at the top of the hub states that a numerical amount of Thalers could be used to open certain chests containing valuable items.
In the file that the game saves normally for saved games, in notepad format, has a value for the amount of coins the player has under the line:
<class type="cLuxPlayer_SaveData" name="mPlayer"".
<var type="2" name="mlCoins" val="_" />
There is also a coin icon might have an inventory item for the Thalers. There are three of these icons in the game files:
Although they are three different images, they all look exactly the same. This makes a lot of sense since the Thalers came in three bags: one small, one medium, and one large, each containing a different amount of coins.
- Thaler was a silver coin used throughout Europe since mid-15th century.
