While I'm in the midst of a brief work-related drought, let's discuss this infographic from Mobile Money UK, which attempts to convert fictional currencies to real-world values. According to their analysis:
- 10 Witcher Orens are worth $3.94 or £2.50
- 10 Elder Scrolls Septims are worth $22.72 or £14.42
- 10 Fallout bottle caps are worth $0.80 or £0.51
Let's check it out: Rosethorn Hall in Skingrad (Oblivion) costs 25,000 Septims, which equates to $568,000. That's a modest but not unreasonable price for such a mansion.
A single pencil in Fallout: New Vegas costs $0.08 by this calculation. Amazon is selling this box of 144 for $15.99, which works out to $0.11 per pencil. Pretty close! Of course, everything falls apart with cigarettes, but then again there wouldn't be cigarette taxes in Mojave wasteland.
