I'm working on compiling a price list....

Unfortunately, it looks as though it will be a monstrous compilation, covering items from the Herbarium, Bestiary, Tribe entries, and so on... any physical thing which can be bought, sold, traded, or bartered in all of Sorr'ae're'cael'erth'aria should eventually wind up on this list, so there are a lot of items to enter, let alone to cross-check and create values and worths for!

If anyone else feels like doing some research to help out here, any references to trades and estimated values would be appreciated.

For example, let's take the pricy substance made from totit by the dedicated Soryint, the fabulous Yuatu'way silk. "one cartload of Yuatu’way fiber will be traded for two Azhorhrian horses…" according to Aenea's Soryint entry. And since the Azhorhrian entry says that even a single horse is worth about 10 bags of gold (sheesh, don't overdo it here, people! Let's read pouch for bag, ok?) that would make it about a mithrene's worth (10 goldbards to the pouch sounds about right...)

So assume fifteen to twenty large bags or bales of rolled cloth to the cartload - let's say twenty to make the math easier.. that would be 200 goldbards for the cart, thus 10 goldbards to the roll... whew, this stuff IS expensive! How many peds to a roll? Well, even for a light fiber there's a limit, or the roll gets too bulky/heavy. But I don't know how many meters of cotton fits on the average cloth roll in my fabric store, so I'm going to go check that out. Once I have that number, I can do the math to figure out my base cost for a single ped of Yuatu'way silk.

Now, do all that math in your head for every single entry on your shopping list....

This WILL be very very useful in the end, though...
