I'm struggling a bit about how to make equipment distribution correct in RtToEE. PC start at level 4. On one hand Hommlet is now small town. As per DMG: On other hand from the module: So on one hand there is 800 gp limit, equal to Level 3 items from MIC Table 6–3: Item Levels by Price chart. On other hand traveling to Verbobonc should be considered trivial. That is why I think there should be some compromise. which should be fun, rational and reasonable. Old Trading Post should allow buying magic items equal to PC level. The narrative would be "We are growing business trading with Verbobonc, and are expanding fast. Come back soon, perhaps new items would arrive." Brother Smyth would supply weapon and armor. Up to 800 gp meaning only masterwork. But I think we should spice up him a little. Make him do Craft Magic Arms and Armor on demand (he took Cleric levels). But either simply extract XP from a PC and half of base cost; or extract double XP and half of base cost; or XP and full price; or full XP and 1.5 of base price. To have + 1 weapon: Wait until level 6 and buy in Old Trading Post. Wait until level 5, take Craft MA&A by a Wizard and make him do it. Use Brother Smyth to do it for a price. Crafting price by PC of +1 weapon is XP: 80, GP: 1000. This would need to be play-through, but - Ideas?
