For reference, I was able to get my old pretend money I made when I was young, and I would like to make KS have at least some resemblance to it.
1W Bill with Emperor Black Puppy, a pound puppy stuffed animal who was the head of my imaginary nation, wearing full plate armor and carrying a sort of spear. Note the triangular WD logo and the Scorpion, which was a reference to the Scorpions I used to make with my Creepy Crawlers ovens. In the "toy universe" that preceeded SARP, the Scorpions sometimes were employed as pilots of small spacecraft (made of Construx) in the way mini nekos are used to save space. By the way, the Emperor had a cool claw weapon we got some somewhere, which is why he was also called "Black Claw" and his empire was sometimes called the Black Claw Star Empire
5W (Weslian Dollar) bill with Emperor John Whiteman in a Traditional Flak Vest
and helmet. I think it's spelled Whitman in SARP lore. I know this is going to sound goofy, but the GI Joe had a white outfit. Kind of like the original Black shirt faction was 3 GI Joes with black or dark gray outfits. But, and this is embarrassing, Jim Blackman was also wearing white and was just named that because he's one of the few black person GI Joes we had. Forgive me! I was a kid and the GI Joes were primarily named based on their features so that my brother and I knew which ones we were talking about. That's because they came from thrift stores and yard sales and in many cases we had no idea what their canon GI Joe names were. It's not like I had internet access at the time and could just look them up.
10W bill with the WD logo. I guess Westech was the Ketsurui Zaibatsu of its day and even made the money. Funky Monkey was a cute neon yellow monkey toy we won at an amusement park. He had a little beanie hat on. I've never been able to find a picture of an identical toy on the internet despite extensive searching. Funky Monkey belonged to my brother Tim which technically makes him a Tymian not a Weslian, which is why Funky City is on Nepleslia and not Yamatai. Did I mention Nepleslia's capital, Funky City, is named after him?
A small Teddy Bear stuffed toy got named Ewok after the Star Wars aliens, despite not actually being an Ewok, lol. He was some sort of important figure in the Weslian Government. There's something nice about a palm-sized stuffed animal that you can smuggle anywhere in your pocket when you're a kid. Like "Ewok" I also had a mini pound puppy that I took to Paris once and I have photos of him sitting on various things in the museums--dressed in his green felt Traditional Flak Vest and carrying a GI Joe gun. Greens represent!
Xenn Trelance was a famous space explorer and spacecraft pilot of the Weslians. On planet Yamatai, Port Xenn
is named after him.
I'm a little surprised there's not a 100W bill with Big Froggy on it, the large velour frog my grandma made me. Maybe something to reference in the future. For a society of mostly GI Joes there's a lot of representation of the stuffed animals so you can tell they had a special place in my heart. When I was populating the early SARPiverse with ideas the wide variety of toys I had translated into the wide various of species, mutants, etc. in SARP. For example the Demon-like Lorr are actually based on a Spawn toy (Tremor II). Zesuaium hull pieces are based on Construx building toys, and so on...
