Coin & Wealth: A System Agnostic Supplement for Managing Money in Fantasy Settings

Watermarked PDF

Coin & Wealth provides GMs with a system that they can plug into any system or setting, which hand waves a lot of the minutia of dealing with money and fantasy economics, while also giving the GM and players a solid framework to understand how the in-world economy works.  it is intentionally vague and a lot of pricing is left up to the GM, just as prices might fluctuate from region to region or depending on the situation.

Coin & Wealth provides two systems which interact with each other, but are also modular.  You can use both of them or just choose one. 

Coin represents hard cash gained from money-making ventures such as selling off artifacts, swindling a merchant, or being returning a kidnapped princess. Coin is expendable.

Wealth represents your profession, investments, and businesses. Wealth is sustainable and provides you with the means to maintain a lifestyle, hire staff, and even employ soldiers and guards.

This is currently a very usable work in progress and comments on the system below would be appreciated!

How much is this a "generification" of the coin and lifestyle rules fron Blades in the Dark ?

Sorry, didn't see this post!

I actually wrote this subsystem before I ever read Blades in the Dark. They're a bit similar, I suppose, in that they're abstract but in play I don't think they feel all that similar at all. BitD's coin is more "spend coin to engage certain game mechanics" than anything, I think. Coin & Wealth is mostly about simulating the economy.

However, writing this was what actually led me to first look over the BitD SRD as I checked out other wealth systems, which then led me to writing my own FitD game.

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
