Once every 8 or so minutes, your creatures demand their wage. They will go to a Treasure Room (Dungeon Keeper), or Treasury or the Dungeon Heart (Dungeon Keeper 2) to collect it. If you cannot afford to pay your creatures, they will become unhappy and may leave or defect.

Dungeon Keeper 2Edit

In Dungeon Keeper 2, the Payday countdown timer is represented by the circle around a money symbol next to the amount of gold displayed at the top of the GUI. Right after payday, the circle is all gold-colored, then it gradually turns black as the next payday approaches. An impending payday is also indicated by the gold amount flashing between two numbers: a number in gold, which is the player's current gold total, and a negative number in blue, which is the total amount of wages the player's creatures will collect on the coming payday.

Each creature type has a base wage at level 1, then it increases as follows:

Level 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
% of Base Wage collected 100 105 110 115 120 130 140 150 180 250

Elite Creatures collect half again as much wages as normal creatures do, with the exception of the highest pay grade (Black Knight, Dark Angel, and Vampire) whose base wages are 1075 rather than the 1125 one would expect.
