I am not comfortable with releasing the full price list I use until I get rid of the stuff that comes from Harn only. However I did go through Swords & Wizardry and picked out all the items that came with Core rules and of course the weapons list I created yesterday. I also included some information on hirelings, weights & measures, and the coinage system.
You can download it from here. For those playing in my campaign I sent you the full price list via email.
While the coinage system derivative of Harn, Crossby and Columbia Games in turn got it from history. The basic idea is that you have one common coin. In my case the Silver Penny, and one really large valuable coin. In my case the Gold Crown which is worth 320 silver penny. Silver penny is abbreviated as d (for denarius). For example a Broadsword is worth 150d.
If you see the symbol f it is short for farthing, 1/4 of a silver penny.
I find this dual coinage system works better than traditional copper-silver-gold. It restore Gold to it's proper place as the king of precious metal as well as restore some of the value to silver.
Also my coins are much smaller than D&D's traditional 10 coin to 1 pound measure. In my case 256 silver equal one pound, and the gold crown weighs one ounce giving 16 to 1 pound. This is actually historical as silver pennies, drachmas, and denarius were minted in a size somewhere between a US dime and a US nickel.
My father inherited a coin collection from his brother and it includes a silver parthian coin from the 1st century, a silver roman denarius from the 2nd century, and a honest to god silver penny minted by King John of England. They are small and light and like the various internet sites say between a dime and a nickel in size.
As for the rest of the price list I plan on incorporating in a future Majestic Wilderlands product along with a bunch of other campaign support material I haven't released yet. I assembled a bunch of historical price lists and combing through them to make sure what I release is my own work and not Columbia Games. I will release it as a standalone download for free when I get done.
