Starting coin?

Postby Knight Marshal » Sat Mar 14, 2009 5:55 pm

OK, confusion with status aside, I see where it says make a status test to determine the number of gold you start with, but nowhere have I found how to conduct the test.

Is the difficulty of the test 0?
Is the best you can get is 16+ which would give you 4 gold?
Unless I am missing something, that really isn't much money. IT would buy one Bravossi sword and then you are pretty much broke.

So how is this done and if it is in the book, could someone point me to the page?

Thanks

Don't forget, in this game a Gold Dragon is worth a LOT of money. Each gold dragon is worth 210 silver stags (ss). reference page, 121.

I found the conversion rate for coins, but with a Bravossi blade and other items costing 800 or so silver stags, then unless we get a lot of gold coins, then money will not go very far especially if you are a noble sort and expected to dress the part.

I am trying to remake my d20 character as close as I can who was a blood member of a minor house.

Roll your status. The total you roll is the amount of gold dragons you begin with. Roll a 10 you have ten dragons.

Look on p. 49 at the example

I suppose you can do the reverse of "investing 200 Gold Dragons for +1 Wealth for your House" and get a bunch of Gold Dragons right off the bat, but your lowering your house Wealth in doing so. Reference, pg 118

I guess you are referring to the sample character creation examples scattered throughout the book. I didn't think to look there.

Why didn't they just say roll a number of d6 equal to your status instead of making it a status test with no mention of difficulty or how to interpret the results.
