Wanderer:  Well, the format isn't the easiest to read through, Patrick, but no, you're right.  Not only did I not have a starting point for assigning prices at the time, but I considered it presumptous of me to go ahead and make such monumental decisions singlehanded.   And again, the only costs that we do have specifically listed are obviously grossly inflated.

we could try putting it in a table or a spread sheet. (tables are less of an eyesore but a spreadsheet is better for these things. No breaks in the lines.

Excuse me... But I think you may of overlooked something here. Wouldn't the prices vary for everything depending on how readily avaliable they were? Would it cost a man in The Tandala Highlands much more for an azhorian horse then an azhorian man? Are these prices what each product would cost in New Santhala?

Sure, that's of course true, however, we need to simplify things first in order to get an approximate standard price/value, which then can change depending on the regional differences. First simplification, then you can make it more complicated again.

One solution would be to make a list with the prices in a single city such as New Santhala.

OMG, that was the wish list from Judy to Santa Claus? I fear she will have to split it in many lists for each year  grin


On the topic... Why we don't check all the misc. section and make a list of the things there, then we assign prices.

Other thing, minerals, I'm preparing a topic on more common minerals (well... those I found in my colection) and I think many of them would be appreciated as fantasy jewlery... should I include their price? I would put the price by sack. (this is just to have another reference for hardness scale and thoughness scale.)

If you make a base price, don't make it in 1 city, but determine for each "product" the lowest price (the price in a region where it's abundant), then extrapolate that to a high price (the price in a region where it can hardly be found)

To me in common english please, not in economist lingua.

What means to extrapolate? how is that done?

extrapolate; taking a base value, and determining how certain circumstances (rarity, transport costs, expiration dates, etc.) will influence that price. For instance, seafood will have a base price in a fishermans town, from wich you can extrapolate a (higher) retail price in a town that is isolated from the sea. (the price rises because of transport costs, and lower supply vs possibly higher demand)

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
