I'm actually in favor of nobles having to pay something for banking services, just not a sum so astronomical it makes them favor their bedrooms over Nenyuk. Though it could be argued that from an OOC perspective, nobles are meant to drive plots with their money and any hindrance will be an OOC distraction. So I guess whatever works, really.

Eh, I'm comfortable with the idea that a Great Merchant House has to bow down to the ruling political class.

If there was ever a Nenyuk PC I think the way in which they ought service the nobles and templars would be through arranging loans for projects rather than banking fees.

That would be a really cool political role.  8)

Point is ... if I withdraw everything and then redeposit from zero, will I be charged zero?

Quote
-Minimum deposit required when fee is in effect (2,000 or more combined value of deposit + balance)

Deposit + balance, so no.  If you are eligible to be charged a fee (whether your account IS at that amount or WILL BE at that amount with your deposit), you will be charged a fee.

With appropriate roleplay of course.

I'm guessing interest will arrive some time after Nenyuk begins making standardized loans to commoners. So.... Probably not ever.

I like this system much better than the first one. And you fixed both the concerns I had.  Well done Staff!

Wait... you guys actually USE Nenyuk? I generally keep all my wealth adding up in my diamond-studded, throne built of viscous black bricks as I overlook the purple-salt-preserved heads of my contract-killed enemies.

What am I doing wrong?

What am I, a fucking half-giant, maaan?

I have to admit, I've been using the bank less.  I caught myself carrying around two large the other day, just willy nilly.  I wasn't sure this was a bad thing for the game, though.  :P

It was a good thing, but the pitchfork-carrying masses won the day. Back to shoving all my sids in the bank!

I still think it would have been great if:

The dark-haired Nenyuki agent looks at you and says,
"That's cute."
I tripped and Fale down my stairs. Drink milk and you'll grow Uaptal. I know this guy from the state of Tenneshi. This house will go up Borsail tomorrow. I gave my book to him Nenyuk it back again. I hired this guy golfing to Kadius around for a while.

I just realized that nobles can now provide a valuable service for wealthy independent merchants...free banking.

Ha, I'm reminded of the guy from the Professional who keeps all of Leon's money "safe" for him.

I fucking loved the Professional.

Also, this change is better.

This has been in a few weeks and I just wanted to chime in and say I have had it affect how I play personally.

I do find myself making decisions about my money that I never would have even put thought into in the past. What was once a completely mindless process now has me making decisions on an IC level about how best to do things. I even take into consideration the ramifications of my actions when stacked against other PC's that I know who may have a reason to react to my decisions.

I like it and I think it's working more or less as intended.

I look forward to where this is going in the future.

If there was ever a Nenyuk PC

I played one over ten years ago, when I was just a little boy.
