Our Gaming Buddies von Deutschland

I've been having this little conversation with Rorschachhamster about real world economy and fantasy gaming, and he proceeded to expand on the subject on his blog.  Naturally, I had to make ample use of web translator apps to get the gist of things, my Germans being rather limited.  Nonetheless I found his work very interesting and worth a look!  Either way, keep up the good work!

Translated from the original version: "Hmm, I think with the tunic I'm still a little cheaper, then 2.5 GM. Even so it does not look so uniform...   Soooo....   I had come this far, and then came Bruce Heard with this table, in which he equated the SM (sp) with the shilling, rather than as I did with the penny, which was a coin made ​​of silver, although only a third as heavy as mine... hmhmhmhmhm ... because I would love to equate the prices here." (...)

Hmm, ich glaube die Tunika mache ich noch ein bißchen Billiger, so 2, 5 GM. Schon damit es nicht so gleichförmig aussieht…  Soooo….  bis hierhin war ich gekommen, und dann kam Bruce Heard mit dieser Tabelle. In der er die SM mit dem Shilling gleichsetzte, anstatt wie ich mit dem Penny, der ja eine Münze aus Silber war, wenn auch nur ein Drittel so schwer wie meine…

  1. As a medievalist, this is a topic that fascinates me endlessly. I'm always seeking to rework the cost tables to be more reflective of actual medieval economics.
