What doesn't make sense here is this. If you can only buy gold/chrysm at a price of 1 to every 10 you spend, what about the person selling it to you? They're getting 10 for every 1 they sell. How come they can sell it at that high price but you can't?

And if chrysm is a raw material, shouldn't it be treated like any other trade good such as wheat or copper? Sure, not everyone needs it. But if you can trade it to someone who does need it, wouldn't that make it valuable to everyone?
