Hi folks,

We're working on producing a list that will give a general idea of how much you could expect to pay for goods and services in Coventia.

We would appeciate any suggestions for goods/ services etc that should be included in this list.

Hopefully, it will also include How many coppers there are to the silver, silver to the gold and gold to the platinum.

Please post any suggestions below.

Cheers!

Ok to make this a bit easier and to give you guys some background on the money situation. All money is done in denominations of 4's. So 4 copper=1 silver, 4 silvers= 1 gold and 4 gold =1 platinum peice.

Also of note you guys as starting characters are given the equivalent of what a family of four would need to keep them going for a year, 2 silver. You should always remember this. You may not be 'rich' in some senses but you can get by. And can afford some items to start of with. The reason you are given this is to represent that you have activly decided to start doing this job and have probably saved up to start out. Or other such reasons.

Well it costs about 1 gold for me to make some jewellery as Ariel. So I would say possibly for about a pound (in weight) of precious metal it costs a gold?

I'm not too sure on that. Most of the reason it was that expensive for you to make that peice was you had to buy the tools and the metals. I think you used silver last time though I am never sure. How about for the metals...

Rememebr that this is not just for you guys its also the general populous
1 pound of workable copper= 1 copper, used for things like making pots, pans mirror ect and some jewllry
1 pound of workable silver = 1 silver
1 pound of workable gold = 1 gold
1 pound of workable platinum = 1 platinum
Dark iron= whatever the person wants for it, it varies depending upon where you are. In the underdark its fairly cheap, on the surface its not.

Alloys= +1 copper per other part to the alloy. So for tin, you would need 1 coppers worth of bronze or something? Gems vary in price and depend upon the size of the gem in question. So I think that would be a request by request basis for gems ect. Maybe? But also we would like things like cloth calue, wood value ect.

just to make this a little bit more complicated....unless i am misunderstanding the term 'useable' these prices seem to be low to me, as from second hand experience a pound of a precious metal would/could produce a lot of finished items. even taking wastage into account. because i try to think in metric, the proposed weight/cost would be 2.2 gold for a kilo of useable gold (2.2 lbs to a kilo)

i know lrp isnt the real world but i think that if the weights were in ounces rather than pounds it would be more workable - rather than trying to work out some method of scripting unit production/wastage for a crafter.
