Princeton Goods

Page history last edited by Michael 1 year, 11 months ago

back to The Tigers or the Index

 


     These are of course very general costs; transportation expenses, seasonal variations, supply and demand will all affect these. Specifically, these are the prices found in the town of Princeton itself. And importantly:  this is just to speed up the game, so players can root around in the inventory on their own. The referee retains the right to say, "Nope, none of those available, sorry."

 

     Prices:  Princeton prefers the paper Tiger, but that currency converts at $1 per Tiger. 

     Availability:  for an ordinary walk-in customer, not known to the seller nor part of their organization, this is the chance as a POWxN%, of at least one item being available. Of course, some locations will have better availability, and having good contacts will also help. The steps are:  always, x10%, x7%, x4%, x1%, and never.
