WOC - Vanderfal The Tavern

An extension of the house rules. This is where economic and other odds and ends go that do not really fit into a "rule" category.

Selling loot:
Magic items can be sold back at 75% of book value, Mundane 50%, If you trade goods for services you can get 75-100% depending on item relevance and/or diplomacy check.


If you wish to hire a NPC with character levels the following formula applies:

Class levels squared x 10 = price on gold pieces a month for their service.

1st = 10gp/month
2nd = 40gp/month
3rd = 90gp/month, etc.

A deposit of 10gp per level squared to any reputable agent (ie the town mayor or sheriff) for a "death tax." When the NPC is safely returned to his point of origin the deposit is returned. If the NPC dies you can recover half of the deposit if he is raised.
