Special note: Volencia has bills for decimal currency and the value of the Volencian Stones is high enough that yes, 50% of a Volencian Stone is enough to get a beer and sandwich and still have room for change! Not fifty years ago, after all, fifteen cents got you a sandwich and bottle of pop at a store.
