The Gaelean Chronicles: Heroes 4 Hire
Durin Vault and Trust
Durin Vault & Trust
Durin Vault & Trust (DVT) is the world-wide, independent banking and vaulting consortium, originally developed by the dwarven peoples. DVT is a supra-national company and vehemently maintains its neutrality across all participating nations of Gaelea. In fact, before DVT will open branches in a new land, the governing bodies there must ensure in writing that DVT will be considered a neutral third party in all political dealings and legal matters.
As such, DVT branch offices, termed ‘Banks’, are considered diplomatic embassies. The typical construction of a DVT Bank is similar to a small fortress with its own dwarven guard force. Banks can be found in all cities across Gaelea, all major towns, and smaller Banks in most villages and settlements depending on size. If a village is too small to have a DVT branch, a representative is usually appointed in the hamlet and DVT provides safes and installations in the designated building, in addition to training, for the DVT representative. DVT provides warehousing, security and transference services of monetary and non-monetary items.
DVT Banks provide secure storage of monetary reserves for its customers. A ‘Cash Account’ allows customers to store any quantity of coin, trade bars or any other currency. Standard accounting principles are followed religiously by DVT staff, and customers have access to their money reserves world-wide at any DVT Bank. DVT also provides normal monetary services as well, such as currency exchange, bank notes, loans and investments.
DVT Banks also provide secure warehousing of non-monetary items, such as magic items, heirlooms, gemstones… practically anything. Items are immediately retrievable from their Bank of original deposit; however, withdrawing an item from a different Bank is subject to delays and fees for the transference of the item between locations.
