thac0hNo's Rise of the Runelords Campaign
Sandpoint is a Small Town.
For gaming purposes, this means the following:
- Any nonmagical, mundane equipment item, weapon, or armor under 1000g value can be found and purchased.
- Merchants will be willing to pay up to 5000g for any single item the group wishes to sell. If the PCs wish to sell an item worth more than a settlement’s purchase limit, they’ll either need to settle for a lower price, travel to a larger city, or (with the GM’s permission) search for a specific buyer in the city with deeper pockets.
