Default Anyone else use MPC?/Pay Day 2000

Does anyone else use MPC (Military Payment Certificate) aka Military Scrip in their campaign?

this is some of the most basic barebones notes that i have so far... if anyone has more to add please do... and if someone can find reference pictures of what they look like please let me know.



The Army and Air Force Exchange Service, the United States Department of Defense's largest and oldest exchange system, distributes pog-like coinage as change at its stores in contingency areas (those supporting Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom). The reason for adopting pogs as currency was that supply flights overseas had limited capacity and high costs. Metal coinage weighs significantly more than the paper pogs, which are also much thinner than standard pogs. However, since only Congress can order US currency made and the pogs stay within the AAFES system, they are "gift certificates" instead of currency. While they are only issued in contingency areas, they are redeemable at any AAFES store worldwide.
British military forces deployed in the southern portion of Iraq in the vicinity of Basra utilize their own version of pogs in their establishments. They are constructed of plastic and circulate freely alongside AAFES pogs.

AAFES Pogs: These are small plastic disks with a picture on one side, and the amount of the military payment certificate on the other.
1¢ (Red) ONE CENT
5¢ (Orange) FIVE CENTS
10¢ (Yellow) TEN CENTS
25¢ (Green) TWENTY-FIVE CENTS
50¢ (Blue) FIFTY CENTS
$1 (Indigo) ONE DOLLAR
$2 (Violet) TWO DOLLARS
AAFES Military Scrip:

$5 (Orange) FIVE DOLLARS
$10 (Violet) TEN DOLLARS
$20 (Yellow) TWENTY DOLLARS

Default Pay Day 2000

Salary in year 2000.

When and if characters return to a military command, what about their salary.

I understand that a gi is satisfied with food and lodging while a lieutenant colonel of the air force is not.


Is it possible that the receive extra food, liqueur and such and uses it to barter with?


The money at the start of the game is supposedly there to show that a character accumulates stuff.

Is it possible to use this as a rule what a charcter can receive each month in combat.

And maybe half of this while not in combat.


Suggestions?

In my campaigns i have used Miltiary Pay Certificates (or more comonally known as Military Scripit) as what the soldiers are paid in. In fact, the civilians around military cantonments also use MPC.

If anyone out there has decent images of MPC please let me know. I am trying to design the look of military script used for my own T2k campaign soi can get them printed out and use as player handouts when i run a couple of games during MACE this year.
