What, you think Morgoth would have the only 5000'-deep dungeon in the world that doesn't have wi-fi?

Tibarius is an unknown quantity at this point
re: 9 Digits

In the current version gold becomes less important the higher the character develops. The highest objects i can remember to have bought in the black market were 150.000 for potion of Augmentation or 270.000 for book#9 of mages or priests. So it would be possible to take up a renaming of AU in GOLD for the next Version

On the other Hand ... everyone playing this game longer than 5 minutes could intuitively recognizes that coins found increase the AU-value and thus should be able to conclude it shows the total amount of coins found.

Ultimately it's short for "aurum," which is just Latin for "gold."
