A question about food/day and provisions

Post by Slloyd14 » Sat Apr 04, 2015 12:54 pm

Hi all! On page 108 of the core rulebook, the cost of food in a city is 2gp per day if it is fresh or 4gp per day if preserved. I was just wondering which one would be adventurers' provisions (I assume preserved) and how many meals that 1 day of food counts as (I assume 1 because you don't get a penalty if you consume only 1 meal, but you get stamina from 2 so I was just wondering).

The reason is, I'm trying to cost correctly some non-magical healing potions that restore stamina and don't have a limit on how many you need.

There is a useful example in the intro adventure on p15. Customising the names and descriptions for the location is usually enough for most situations. In Blacksand (p38) it suggests that foreign coins are not worth face value in other places. I guess its Trading Mods and Bargaining skills time...
