EQ is a terrible example in this case as you can get to most places
from most other places for money. Its just thats its player driven in
EQ, and costs pretty much the amount you are saying although I've been
offered 5 times that before.

As to globally limiting travel in a game, I don't believe that it adds
any fun to the game. Running across half the world hoping you don't
get killed was an unhappy mix of dull and scarey. If one wanted to
make trade profitable between globally seperated markets, then I can
see the case for limiting travel. Then again I feel that there may be
better ways of doing this by limiting the amount of cargo that can go
through a teleport etc.

I don't understand why people think money has no value in EQ. Patently
it does, in fact its the only thing that maintains its value really.
