    I'm certain this has been discussed before, but I'm not enamored with the forum search feature and I'm lazy. Is there a way of transferring gold from one of my avatars to my alternate avatar--two different accounts?

    Thanks in advance,
    Cornfellow

    Login to both accounts and trade it to yourself.

    A couple of options:

    - Run two copies of the game and login on both
    - Add an item to a vendor and buy the item on the other character

    Probably more ways to do it but those are probably the most obvious.

    That works? I never tried to run 2 executables of the game on the same machine.

    I run a steam client and stand alone at the same time with no problems.

    If you just want a little gold to get an alt started, enter the alt's name as co-owner on a lot (IIRC you don't need to log in twice for that) and set up a chest with appropriate permissions and set it not private. Then when you get ash borers and cutworms, leave them in that chest. There is currently no other use for those items than to sell to vendors for gold.

    I've had issues trying to run two instances with this method.
    However the original way works fine:
    If you are running SOTA in full screen mode, you will probably need to use ALT + TAB to get to the desktop to see the icon. The ALT + TAB can be used to swap windows to manipulate both characters.

    (Uses a lot of resources so probably not good to stay open for long on most machines)

    This is the easiest, and the method I employ, but presupposes access to a commission free vendor, or the willingness to pay the commission to transfer the funds.

    Just baffling why there is no 'Deposit Gold' function in game, it is a 'bank' after all. I've been looking and looking and cannot see.

    This may be a different scenario but I did recreate my character and wanted to deposit the initial character's gold. Ended buying molds instead to get rid of the gold instead of just deleting it.

    We don't have that feature yet , although it is a good reminder that we need to be able to place gold in at least the bank ;) We can trade it with other players but we cannot directly place our gold anywhere else. ;)
