Light & Dark
Booze, Hippies, and d20s… Sounds like a great Friday Night!
In game, 1 pound of gold costs 50 gold coins
In real life, one troy ounce of gold is worth $1610.00, with 1 american pound containing 14.583 troy ounces. This means a pound of gold is worth 23,478.63 US dollars.
Whats this mean? Well nothing really, comparing real life to DND is an exercise in futility. But if we pretend this information is meaningful then 1 DND gold coin would be worth 469.57 US Dollars! A copper piece is almost a 5 dollar bill.
Fry: Hey guys! Want to come camping with me and meet my friends?
Lister: I suppose some fresh air wouldn’t be so terrible for my complexion.
Zyi: Oh Boy Oh Boy! Adventure and New Friends!
Arlyn: Why not… I mean what possibly could go wrong?
5 days later
Lister: Goodness I do despise camping. I mean really? Mud, Monsters, and Madness?! Why does anyone camp?
Zyi: Stupid short Gnome sausage fingers. Ticker! Will you tie my shoes again? Oh wait…
Arlyn: Rattle Rattle Rattle
Fry: ATTACK! (Fires his rifle loaded with wet spaghetti noodles)
