As any economist will insist, economic behavior is about allocating limited resources - limited resources including giving your fellow Agents a hand with this or that aspect of preparing their Evokation or some other aspect of their involvement on Evoke. To that end and to promote the exchange of goods and services among Evoke Agents (strictly within the Terms of Service), I'd like to invite interested parties to step forward and bank some Evokians to make this market possible.
How can you spend an Evokian? It will be an in game currency that can be used to negotiate services that promote the accomplishment of Missions, Quests, and Evokations. They can not be used to pay for votes. When spending Evokian, you must notify this post with the number of Evokians spent and what they paid for. For example, I don't speak Hindi so I asked Agent Y to translate a doc**ent and I paid him 4 EVs for his time. Or I needed some expert advise from an engineering Agent on what it would take to manufacture this product for my Evokation - since it took her three hours to research it for me, I paid her 6 EVs.
What is the exchange rate of EVs to services? That will be decided by the marketplace, but paying someone a billion EVs will lead to runaway inflation (and now you owe the bank and thereby your fellow Agents a billion EVs).
Can I run a debt? Sure, but I would encourage other Agents who want to engage in the marketplace to check on someone's debt burden before accepting payment.
How long will this economic experiment go on? Provided it is promoting exchange and not inhibiting it and the moderators don't object, I will run it (with help if anyone wants to help) through May 12th.
How will the accounts be reconciled? Once a day, I will go through the days posts, tally up who gave what to whom, and a list of participating Agents with their EV balances will be posted.
How many EVs do I start with? None. The first time you exchange a EVs for a service, you will owe the bank that much.
What other rules apply? Beats me. This is an experiment. I invite others to help me refine the idea.
