About the Guilds
The Guilds are updated to 3E. The Spells available on scroll are now
priced in a more 3E style, the prices of inks and papers are more in line with the PHB.
However, the prices of books, and particularly spellbooks are higher than the PHB. Also,
I upped the prices of Inkpens and kept a listing for Quills and Brushes (all listed under the
category or Writing Tools).
|Changes in Book Prices from the PHB: This stems from an
inconsistency in the PHB pricing scheme between Paper, Parchment (I refer to it as
Vellum) and the Spellbook listed. Using the PHB scheme, the paper or vellum in a
spell book is worth 15 copper pieces, verses the 4 or 2 silver pieces listed for the
Paper and Parchment; and that's not taking the book cover and binding into
consideration. Seemed that they overcompensated in making the Spellbook
"affordable". So, I added a "binding" cost component (that
includes a leather cover). To figure the cost of the book, I added the price of
the paper or vellum to the binding cost. For thick books, I added 5 gp.|
|Changes in Writing Tools (Inkpens) from the PHB:
This is another place where I felt they under valued the item. The inkpen from
the PHB is on the list, but it's a common writing instrument not suitable for the
delicate nature of scribing spells in books and scrolls. Also, I personally like
the theory that spells are better scribed with organic media, so I came up with a
"Wizard's Inkpen". Also, I listed Brushes, Quills, and Charcoal for
those occasions when a player would like to make an odd purchase.|
The Guild info is split into 2 sections, to better suit a campaign concept,
and to make an easy "mundane" list vs. "fantastic" list. The Guild of
Arcane Lore is the "fantastic" Mage's Guild price listing of equipment and services
(not discussing the creation, commission, or sale of Magic Items in specific, but giving some
general guidelines). The Scribes and Cartographers Guild gives a listing of equipment for
scribes, calligraphers, and cartographers as well as a pricing scheme for maps.

policies for PC related transactions.|
|Scribes & Cartographers' Guild:
A companion for the Guild of Arcane Lore, the Scribes and Cartographers have prices for
products and services for the more mundane calligraphic arts.|
