Scarlett will have the opportunity to collect money (ducats) by collecting various loot or treasure as she explores the world of Venetica. Sometimes, she will be able to find actual ducats. More often, she will find other items of some value which she can later sell for ducats to Merchants. She can use the money she collects in this way to purchase items that will help her in her quest.

Such loot can be found simply lying on the ground (rarely). Sometimes, it will be found in footlockers or "urban chests" which she can open (possibly requiring that she be able to pick the lock.) Other items will be found in pottery, which she will first have to shatter by striking with a weapon in order to discover the loot (no one ever objects to Scarlett walking about shattering pots and vases. Characters will object is she takes loot from homes when they are occupied; if she does, she'll lose Reputation and have to go see the Judge to clear her name.) Other loot can be found by inspecting the bodies of enemies she kills or by using the Beast Knowledge skill to skin Creatures she kills. Still other treasure can be found by digging up Buried Treasure.

Some of the treasure Scarlett will find are actual useful items that she can use instead of sell: Armor, Weapons, Consumables, and Magical Items. For most of those, she can choose to either use them or sell them. Quest Items cannot be sold, only used to fulfill quests. The various loot listed below are items that have no intrinsic use, other than to be sold to increase Scarlett's wealth (so she can purchase more useful items.) Although it's possible to also purchase these items from Merchants, there's no advantage in doing so; Scarlett always loses money if she buys and then sells something.

  • Deimos will pay twice as much (4 ducats) for Copper Ore than other Merchants.
