Microlite75: Gold Standard or Silver Standard?
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.
