Classic D&D / Treasure Types
« on: March 11, 2016, 08:04:16 PM »
I have implemented the classic game's treasure generation rules in my computer game.  Something I struggle with is treasure distribution - the game has to be rewarding, but not advance players too quickly.  For example, Bandits (Type A) average 7730 GP in loot for a first level dungeon.

In my game I solved this by putting on limiters - no more than 500 GP per type per level (max 500 GP, 100 PP, 500 GP worth of gems etc).

Tonight I thought it would be fun to run some generations to see how well, or not, this works.  It works pretty well as it turns out.

For each monster, I generated 10,000 instances of the treasure for their level, and looked at the averages for total gold value, magic items and consumables (scrolls and potions).

General Discussion / Favourite polite or archaic curse words?

What are your favourite expletives suitable for use in polite company?

Mine are the usual silly ones - tomfoolery, ballyhoo, shenanigans - and the classic 'confounded', which apparently doesn't mean anything at all.
