A visit to the Dismal Tower might be a start, and checking in with the Hadereum would help direct.

I'd* be happy trading the lot of them for a 1 point Training Access (Aethelbert's Library) Perk (just as a suggestion).
* As long as everyone else says 'Yea' as well.

The library will go to Aethebert for "cataloging" and you can.pay for access later.


A Matter of Concern for the Hadereum might be the thread to start in, and Back in town for the others...

Thread is still CLOSED boss.  Also, thread is at 965 messages, so might want a new one, just to be safe.



Also, does this mean Jednesa is also 'Back in Town'?  She needs a roll and a 9 or less means she's denied entrance.  She has a healthy chunk of change that could be used for bribe money if necessary, just say the words...

Split 7 ways that's 342.85, that leaves 5 bits.

Stenet will agree to disperse the the $0.05 in whatever manner the highest ranking expedition member desires (that would be Haskell).

Re: Returned from the Abbey
Stenet Fjall:
Head to toe Giant Spider Silk jammies are $15k. GSS is CF x99, a suit of Cloth armor is $150.


A full suit, yes. But If I only go for the body now, it would cost just $53 x 100  $5300, and weigh 6.3 lbs. I can add bits on later...
Stenet Fjall:
quote:
Also, can she get a Balanced Silver-coated Orichalcum Jo...
        2 lbs, $400, with Staff enchantment, holds up to 4 points as powerstone.

You cannot Balance a "fist or stick weapon".  Jo staves are "stick weapons" regardless of material (by RAW).

You can't get the Staff enchantment on "non-organic" weapons.  Orichalcum is metal.

As for the first... as per Kromm it's because the cost of the base weapon is too low.  It is suggested that if a GM is going to allow it they raise the base cost of the stick or fist weapon to that of a "comparable" weapon. A Jo does sw+1 thr+1, the next closest two-handed weapon that is comparable is a Monk's Spade which costs $100.  So treat the Jo as costing $100 for the Balanced upgrade...  the other recommendation is apply the material cost first, then the Balance cost.

Instead of Orichalcum you want Dragonbone (from DF 8 Treasure Tables) so you can put Staff on it.

Dragonbone CF +24
Instead of wood for shafts and handles, weapons may be made with hard, lightweight, alchemically treated dragon bone, which is as durable as orichalcum. Dragonbone weapons and projectiles have the same benefits as orichalcum: They donít break, and other weapons have a +2 chance of breaking when parrying a heavy dragonbone one. Dragon bone isnít flexible, so bows may not be made from it.

Lastly, you want Sylvan...

Sylvan Staff: The hardest wood known to elf-kind has -1 to odds of breakage and can be made fine (+2 CF) for another -1 to odds of breakage. Its density concentrates the force of blows, giving +1 to damage as well! Wooden sticks (batons, light clubs, quarterstaffs, etc.) only: +15 CF.

Sylvan makes it 'Elven' for that valued 10% Elven price break you cheaty Elves get.

(Kromm has allowed that making a Sylvan Dragonbone Staff is perfectly okay if you want to drop the $$$ on it)

Also, Kromm allows any Sylvan staff to have Balanced added to it after Sylvan (so apply the x4CF to $150).


Other modifiers you may have skipped;

Fine CF+2, adds +1 damage and decreases breakage by 1; Ornate +4 or +9, if you're thinking about going for a Power Item why not go whole hog; Silvered CF+2, for that day when you just have to beat a Wight to death with your staff.

Note, as per DF 8, Silvered counts towards part of the pricing of Decorative Embellishments, so Silvered CF+2 is equal to Ornate CF+1 (so you can reduce the CF of Ornate by 1 if you also make the item Silvered).


So... to sum up...

A Fine Balanced Silvered Sylvan Dragonbone Jo Staff (with Staff) is only $1,080 and has a PF 8 (based on a non-Enchanted price of $1,040).

Slap some Ornate on there at +3 ($80) and you slide up into PF 9.  Add another $300 in "jewels or gilding or etc" and you can hit PF 10 (non-Enchanted value of $1,420, remember the Power item chart rounds up to the nearest value).


[Fine $20 + Balanced $600 + Silvered $20 + Sylvan $150 + Dragonbone $240 + Jo $10 + Staff Enchant $40 = $1,080]


So an Ornate Fine, Balanced Silvered Sylvan Dragonbone Jo with the staff spell, sw+3, th+3, no breaking, power factor or 10 for $1,420, 2 lbs

Plus silk underwear (what girl would say no!) for $5,300, and a pair of silk gloves ($500, same table as the link) Sounds like her shopping is done! All this ok to add to Character sheet, GM?

Also, can she sell her Fine Leather Armour (7.5 lbs) DR 2 worth $1580? How much would she get for it? I am assuming 40% ($632) that sound about right?

In a similar vein, for Chris, Christine would like to upgrade his leather armour with a Light Plate, Cuirasses ($630 resale value, so I assume that much comes out of her share if she keeps it.)

Chrid is wearing DR6 full plate as previously discussed ages ago; the point per vost value of his DR at creation was converted to armor of the same value.

Also don't forget "Breakage -2" incase for some reason you're parrying a Destructive weapon that is able to overcome the Dragonbone's "unbreakable" quality.

That would have to be either a magically endowed item or something akin to a giant sized orichalcum maul.

Character sheet updated. What was his natural DR we agreed on?

Used the funds instead to get him a Fine Balanced Silver Coated Pick ($630, 3 lbs)

As the native DR for a clay golem is 0, and you paid for 10 points worth of DR as gear, he has DR6 plate, ehich costs $9600, and he was given a $400 upgrade, Iirc, his pick became fine.
