[Wonderland] Wonderland Currency
#1
Default 
Does currency exist in your wonderland? If so, is it a real-world currency, or does your wonderland have its own type of currency? If you've invented it for your wonderland, what is the currency like? Is it paper, coins, both, or something else entirely? Roughly how much is it worth?

Do you and/or your tulpa(e) keep track of how much money you have, or do you just force money when you need it?

If your wonderland does not have money, why not? Is there a barter system or other alternative? Is money just irrelevant (e.g., your wonderland is only inhabited by you and your tulpa(e))? Have you simply never really given it much thought?

As for me, I haven't given much thought to this. It's implied that it exists, but I can't recall personally ever actually spending any money in the wonderland.

I've been thinking of rebuilding a new wonderland; if I do so, I may put more thought into this, possibly inventing a new currency for the wonderland (as well as a lot of other things; it'd probably end up turning into a full-blown worldbuilding session), though I don't know if I'd really ever need to use it.

Hmmm, never really thought about it. Shadow and I haven't run across any non-malevolent intelligent creatures yet, so we haven't really had a chance to need money. It'll probably be mostly bartering if we ever do need something, though.

I have racked my brain and cannot come up with any reason why anyone would need money in their imagination.

Or you could, like, take the hours that you would spend building an imaginary world and use them to work on your tulpa.
Just saiyan.

I've used money a couple times to make mind adventures more realistic (going to the carnival, eating at a restaurant, etc.). Whenever I had to pay I used regular Canadian currency. I didn't put much thought into it though; it was more or less automatic.

Holly and I are the only sentient beings in our wonderland. If we ever need something we could just make it appear.

The only living things in mine are inner demons and they're too stupid to need money. Otherwise what fillyfooler said.
I mean, unless we're roleplaying, then we use gold coins. But that's a side thing.
Though I might think of making a slice of life wonderland too.

Nope It never even cross my minds, Me and Oguigi just think of what we want to appear and with enough energy it does.

Of coruse if you insist on making the wonderland as real as possible like, glitchthe3rd had ( he made it so he can feel real pain guys ).

Then go for it.

most of us here prefer, enjoying god mode.

Well there is nothing in our wonderland that actually requires money and without working for it but still spend it, the whole concept is rather pointless.
Unless, ofc, if you want to add some novelty into it, why not.
For me, i'm already enslaved by capitalism irl enough.
They say great science is built on the shoulders of giants - not here.
At Tulpa.info we do all our science from scratch; no hand holding.

No, we don't have any currency in there. Never thought of that, actually.

That's pretty much what mine is. I liked the idea of making it fairly realistic.

Wow, that's kind of... intense... though I have to admit it's pretty amazing to have the wonderland so well-developed that he can actually feel pain. That must have taken a lot of effort and concentration.
