Good morning!

I wanted to drop a quick note regarding character wealth. It's been brought to my attention by several of you that your characters are not as wealthy as you should be according to the 'Character Wealth per Level' table in the Core Rulebook.

Let me start my reply by stating that simply looking at that table, and disregarding the attached discussion on the pages surrounding it, can lead to a very skewed perspective on character wealth. It is really a useful tool in gear ratios for characters created above first level. However, it is NOT meant to represent solely permanent gear a character has on hand at any one moment.

The table also doesn't in any way attempt to represent rewards that are valuable in game but not monetarily... which is frustrating...

Likewise the table doesn't really reflect what happens at the table in regards to distribution. In most instances I give the party treasure and don't dictate how it is split up. If you feel your character is under geared compared to the rest of the party, that's something that should be discussed by the party.

Having said all of this I am still totally willing to concede that you guys are suffering from a lack of 'spending cash'. Most of your wealth is indeed wrapped up in items or other resources and this is hindering your ability to choose your gear for yourselves. I am taking steps to remedy this, such as the stuff in Run's place, and I will continue to keep it in mind as the game progresses.

Thanks

Umm, you had enough "spare change" to make a MW repeating crossbow so even at half price what 300 GP? Wihtout repaying my character what he loaned you before our last adventure. I didnt have that much "spare change" on my character sheet even if you paid me back what you owed Laughing . All characters are expensive it is not limited to the Alchemist. So lets not try and make it that you are the only person having an issue. As we are not even close to having 21 man crew for 3 duties on board the ship repairs to it that cannot be acheieved through the druids use of wood shape may need to wait.

As several people asked sepcifically for a haversack you can hand it off to one of us if you dont want it.

The only real potential sell items at this point are:

The dagger
nets us 1.15 K

and the staff of healing
nets us 14.8 K

Aryanne could possibly offend the tree spirit and sell the
+1 defending staff she was gifted.
nets us 4.15 K

Does the group feel like selling any of the above mentioned items? Do we feel like we need to sell items at this point to either acquire more personal gear or for communal purposes (the ship, our home, buisness charters/liscences)? If so lets figure out how much we need and if its worth selling to augment what we found.

Perhaps an better alternative would be to secure some sort of short term contract work for Onyx Key with some kind of advanced payment. We still have a number of items from around the shop that remain unidentified or locked as well.

Or piracy. Piracy is always fun.

Rhedoc returns the 7 gp borrowed from Tanith (5 gp for adventuring gear, 2 gp for the inn room.
