    RuneQuest 6 vs BRP for Base System

    I use AH Runequest + older BRP versions + my own home brew called EBROS.

    Fantasy economic system - starting money question

    This is absolutely awesome! Things is, I am not the kind of number cruncher I should be though, so I'll try to implement this but may get lost someway half through. Thanks anyway, this kind of economic insight is EXACTLY what the feel of reality that I search for, needs.

    Thanks all for the tips on what to base Starting Money on! I am sorry I didn't reply earlier. It's been a little hectic with both X-mas preparations and building my own RPG including three tests of the player character generation. This is still going on. //Erik

    I think I actually have that one, at least the one they made for the game. I own several versions of Harnmaster, but I can imagine yours are better, fan made stuff often are!

    Fantasy economic system - starting money question

    Yes, I should use more barter and I think it's more the model in the rural areas, especially since I am running a low fantasy campaign. But I should be mentioning, it isn't low-fantasy right now. It's very high fantasy at them moment. Then a great catastrophe happens and everything gets much more low fantasy - but with chaos effects - minus the magics since the Gods have barred all knowledge like that after the catastrophe. The lives of the characters are also many hundreds of years after this catastrophe. Am I making any sense here?

    Lead is also poison, so there is of course a "shortage of health". Bad puns aside, I am thinking of other possible materials for coin. Maybe ceramics...

    Fantasy economic system - starting money question

    Thank you! And now, I "just" have to figger out how to adjust this table for the denominator in my game: lead coins. The other, more precious metals are all very seldom seen in this setting of mine. It is almost always only the high nobles and royalty that have access to the better metals, except lead. Metal weapons among more successful middle class member *can* be of copper or even bronze, but is exceedingly rare even then.

    That's was smack dab in the middle what I wanted Atgxtg! Many thanks. It's at least easier to convert from that list you gave me, than anything else I've come across in my searches. Is that "d" as in "denarii", the same denominator they use in Pendragon, and the like? //Erik.
  10. Hello! My question(s) stem from the world construction I am dealing with these days. I am trying to complete a generating system for my own RPG, the EBROS system (and world), a fantasy setting emulating a kind of low fantasy "Europe" (around 1400s without the powder weapon technology) on another world. There is a continent spanning empire called Magna Rex on the main continent and several other independent states there as well as many others on two other continents. The status system/table for PCs that I use for my game is the following, heavily influenced by "Central casting: Heroes of Legend" and the BGB book (see pic) My question is: Is there a starting money per status (and profession) table or suggestion somewhere? Thanks for any help! //Erik.

    Greg Stafford Condolence Thread

    Great Grief! One of my absolute House Gods are now gone. I own one of the books that was his personally, bought from him on Ebay, the first edition Runequest. As I am a serious collector of all Chaosium materials over the years except Superworld and Nephilim, this is the man that started my turn into the GOOD stuff. I will mourn your passing Greg, and light a candle. May your soul go to Orlanth and Yelm both. You were at least as mighty and as warm in your friendliness as them. Kindest possible thoughts, Erik Brickman.
  12. Sorry for the late reply here! No, unfortunately I am not well versed in Spanish. So I have to decline that version. Thanks anyway! //Erik.
  13. Hello Soltakss! Is it possible for you to send both parts of the adventure to my address too? Kindest regards, Erik.
