Why Gold?

Gold is considered the holiest of materials, though not the rarest, and has been since the beginning of civilisation. It is very unreactive (it's a noble metal) and so can stand up to the might of the elements (nobody wants their temple to fall down). It is also the most malleable and ductile of all metals making it easy to shape it into bricks. The only downside is that gold tends to be very expensive and golden bricks even more so.

  1. The actual price fluctuates, depending on the current market price of gold bricks (can be seen in the 'Market Quotes' section of the Godville Times) and the place of purchase; about 2700 coins was the lowest price ever observed so far.
  2. The rumor is that the likelihood of gold brick purchase increases the more gold the hero has, but that was not reliably confirmed.
