This item has no point, at least in Skyrim. Period.
There is no point to septims, there is no point to being a thief, there is no point in being rich. There is no point to even putting points into the speech perks.
The BEST thing you can do with these things is buy and upgrade a house for yourself. Otherwise they are merely for show.
There needs to be a reason for me to want to be rich and play the game for the currency it has. I can just find any weapon I want, I can just find any armor I want. Why would I want to play the game for the currency it has when I could just acquire the weapons and armor by just PLAYING THE GAME. Playing the game for the currency is like making a middle man for yourself to add time to the gameplay.
>what about spells
you can also find almost every spell out in the world
same for alchemy ingredients.
The advantage to playing for the currency SHOULD be that it's easier to acquire the items you want, but instead it's much more conducive to just play the game and acquire gear and items that way, because acquiring the currency acts as a trick. You have to do the same amount of work PLUS the work of buying and selling to get what you want.
Because of these elements being a thief or a merchant or whatever is the same as being an assassin. This is Skyrim's main problem. Everything is mushed together for a lack of fuck all to do. In a world that's so vast it's astounding that there's so little do do. No adventure, no post game, no sense of wonder or excitement.
