The money in my game borrows the simple system used by the game Darklands to represent the myriad feudal coinages, there is one standard: 12 Pfennig (pf)= 1 Groschen or Schilling (g), 20 Groschen = 1 Florin (fl). The standard coin for Epicrpg purposes is the silver Groschen or Schilling (g), copper Pfennigs are really just shortchange for peasants to deal in and the golden "Florins", or "Guilden" or "Guilders" are what the great lords and merchants will tend to trade with.

The prices presented here are those in the Regensberg of the SRI campaign setting, a larger than average city in the Empire, albeit not one of the major centers, and on important overland trade routes , giving access to a wider array of Arms. The only truly overpriced item will be the Longbow and it's specialised arrows as the best place to get them is the Low Countries.

Skill and stat minimums: You suffer a -2 penalty to accuracy and damage if you do not meet one of the minimums, you suffer a -5 penalty if you do not meet two or more of them. If the weapon has the AP, AC, KO or S characteristic, it loses it, the exception to this is that guns and crossbows always retain their AP. I have pulled these figures out of the air, since we need a chance to play test, but they work right to my mind. However, I am open to comment.
