Context: I’m getting ready to DM my first game with two completely new players. One of them is having questions about her background as a paladin with the noble background and I am not being helpful:
Paladin (her):As a noble I start with 25 gold pieces how much is that worth
DM (me):25 gold is currency
Paladin: I know. How much is it worth? What could I buy with that?
Me: Currency can be used for goods and services
