I’m going to add an equipment list to Microlite75 this weekend. Believe it or not, this has been one of the most requested additions for both Microlite74 and Microlite75. However, I have a problem. All editions I’m aware of of the world’s most popular fantasy RPGs are on a gold standard — that is, they have prices in gold pieces. I always use a silver standard with prices in silver pieces. This has always felt more realistic to me.
The question is, which standard should I use for Microlite75: the gold standard most gamers are used to or the silver standard I personally use in my campaigns? While I’m torn as to which way I should do it, I have to admit that it really doesn’t make that much difference within the game. The only real difference is whether the “base coin” is called a silver piece or a gold piece. Please tell me which you’d rather see Microlite75 use.
