The money of Tekumel is broken down by 20's. A single gold Katiar is worth 20 silver Hlash.
A single silver Hlash is worth 20 copper Qirgal.
The Tsolyani employ a system of cross-clan obligations and favors. (This can be thought of as credit.)
Cash is seldom used by natives. On the other hand, foreigners are always required to pay in cash.


All that gear has to be carried. Each 1 Pound is equivelent to 151 Katiars.
