List of Banks

There are many different banks across the lands with their own accounts, and it is possible for a character to have accounts in any or all of them. Silvers deposited in one bank can only be withdrawn from a branch of the same bank. To find a bank in town, use the DIRECTION command.

F2P characters are restricted to a single town's bank account, whichever one they first use. If the character uses the bank in Ta'Vaalor, they cannot access their money in Ta'Illistim, and vice-versa, despite the Bank of the United City-States serving both cities.
