I'm not totally sure on Willpell's references to real-world US money, but I know I wouldn't expect to be able to buy three Minor Healing Potion for $1.00. That seems like an excessively low price for something that essentially can save the life of your player character. It's something that would substitute for days of hospital treatment, so I'm not even sure that $30.00 USD is a price I'd be going for, in real-world terms.willpell wrote:(As an aside, the coins in Diablo should really be called Copper Pieces rather than Gold, given how many of them it takes to buy even the most basic items. Thirty cents for a Minor Healing Potion makes more sense than $30, if we translate it into our own money, given that even level 1-9 characters have little need for any more MHPs than they invariably drop in the course of play.)
I think I'd like to avoid comparisons with the real-world USA and bring this back to D&D...and Diablo.
Is there anything in the Diablo RPG products that lists prices for items? Are these prices higher or lower than the PHB (or other sources)?
I know that World of Warcraft: The MMORPG has radically different money to D&D. The coin names are the same, but the number of copper pieces in a silver piece is totally different. Does Diablo follow a similar system to WoW?
