Always important in an RPG-like game is the economy and in particular the currency called in Across The Time « Chronoton ».
It will be used mainly to buy many items in stores that will serve you in your adventure. Monsters will drop some coins whose number will vary according to their difficulty, and you will have to complete missions or sell the loot from a specialist dealer to gain Chronotons.
But it will not neglect another currency that reappeared in Across The Time 2 « Ecailles Souveraines du Chaos« . This currency is rare, and you can purchase powerful sovereign items in a store planned for this purpose.
Now let us come the utility of Chronoton with stores. During your journey you will find several towns populated by NPCs including traders who are willing to do business with you.
Each of the towns or villages will have all kinds of shops who you can buy various items with your Chronotons : – Blacksmith (weapons and armor) – Grocery (various Food) – Alchemist (Potions) – Dahäl Master (Spells Books) – Stable (Horses) – Black Market (Sovereign Items)
A bank will be set up in several cities in order to protect your money in case of death. Indeed when you die in Across The Time II you lose a percentage of Chronotons you have on you. Deposit your money in the bank and during your adventure you will protect your gains.
