Neat. How does it work?  Money goes into inventory, bank account?  Can a person join a clan, not log in for a RL year, and come back to a huge stack of coins?

This has to be set up manually. Wait for your local clan staff to announce it first--they'll give instructions, too.

It amounts to going to a particular npc in your clan's barracks area and using the "ask" command.

You can get paid every half month.
At most, you will only receive a full month's pay.
Paint on a mustache and be a dude for a day. Stuff some melons down my shirt, cinch up a corset and pass as a girl.

With appropriate roleplay of course.

That is absolutely awesome!
Will it affect leader/banker accessible clan accounts?

This is paid directly to the character, so if I understand your question correctly, it will not affect any clan nenyuk accounts.

I'm pretty sure that my very first background mentioned clams.  Oops.

This is hugely awesome, staffpersons.  This has been a substantial hassle in every clan I've been in.
The sword is sharp, the spear is long,
The arrow swift, the Gate is strong.
The heart is bold that looks on gold;
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

I assume the pay is based on ranks, so if your leader gives you an awesomeness payraise, that will have to be dealt with in the old fashioned way?

I'd consider that more of a bonus.  Pay is set by ranks.  Anything above and beyond would have to be dealt with by the leader personally.

A staff member sends you:
"Normally we don't see a <redacted> walk into a room full of <redacted> and start indiscriminately killing."

You send to staff:
"Welcome to Armageddon."

it with murder, betrayal, and corruption, instead of arguing about how combat isn't powerful enough.

This is correct.  Pay is set by ranks.  If your leader wants to pay you more, he or she will have to do it manually--or promote you.

This has also been set up so that it can work with the Tuluki Qynar/Striasiri system. 

While it certainly helps player leaders, it was originally intended to remove one more thing (payment of stipends to GMH family and nobles) from regular staff duties.  It has since expanded into a generic system.  Thanks, Olgaris!
