Most gold spent on a single item in Avlis?

PostAuthor: Manuel the White » Thu May 13, 2004 9:23 pm

Most gold spent on a single item in Avlis? Let's leave residences, property and services off this list. If you can't carry it, don't take it into account. We aren't taking trades into account either since there's no way to put a value on a trade. If you want to list a trade, have at it. K = 1000 gold.

100 BILLION DOLLARS!

Vote might be a bit high, as it's for an item I've bought, but hten had to return.

Put me in the 1-5k category. There's very little that I've seen for sale for less than 100k that was worth buying, and 100k+ is pretty much out of my price range.

I'm around the 10k range. I have really only bought one item that was worth that, and that was at a trade fair

I thought I would vote just to even things out. I think the most I've spent on purchasing something was the 300 gold I had to spend for my first, plain bow from Deleria's. (Note start date.)

OMG, that was great. What a bidding war! I think I'll flood the market with those now and drop its value down to about 40K.

Hey, I never gave you anything :P

As for item.. the most I've ever spent on a single item was 20k. My hoard does not really allow for anything bigger then that.

Everything I've ever wanted to buy has always been way outside all my character's price range. So all I've bought is from NPC merchants, or if we're talking bulk items then I've probably spent several 10s of thousands on potions & heal-kits from PCs before.

Which with the curent influx in gold would net about double or more now probably...every thief in mikona is a millionaire by dusk.

The top priced item I ever bought was a +5 ring of protection for 500.000 gold, and someone was able bid for a red dragon armor. The 2nd highest item i ever bought was an Aslyferund Elvenchain for 450.000 gold from the 1%ers.

My main character bought a sickle from Deek for 7k IIRC. That's the most I've ever spent. (and now that I think about it, he still owes Deek 5k. Good thing my main's in Mystara, so Deek's legbreakers can't find me :) )

As a DM, I think the most I've ever sold an item for at a trade fair auction was 700k, but my memory could be failing me here. And that's not counting the one Ayren had to give back :)
