IC Monetary Guide

None of this is original Fort content - it is all obtained from PernWorld's original, official website.

The Pernese economy has, since almost the very beginning, been based on barter, the concept of trading for something of equal value. Even after AIVAS, and the end of Falls, this concept is still practiced.

The question, though, is how does one know how much something is worth? Or how much someone's services are worth? Or if one person doesn't have something that the other person will want? The answer is the staple of the Pernese monetary system: The Mark.

The Mark is not supported like most RL monetary systems on some sort of priceless metal; its sole foundation is daily labor.

Cost Tables per Craft

These are an excellent reference for figuring out IC costs based on value; if the item you're looking for isn't here, you can probably find something that would make sense to be of similar value, or put it in between two things, and estimate from there.

Apprentice-made is up to 50% under marked value, Master crafted up to 50% over. All are average prices, exceptional items may cost more.
