Creation

  • We will use the Ripper monetary system instead of Gaslight's.
  • Each player starts with £5 and a set of clothes suitable to their social class
  • Poverty - only start with £2 1/5
  • Rich & Noble - If taken at creation, you start with 3x of startup funds (£15). This accounts for having your monthly stippend at creation. Your background must include where the wealth/social status comes from and the extra expenses you incure due to it.
  • Filthy Rich - If taken at creation, you start with 5x of startup funds (£25). This accounts for having your monthly stippened at creation. Your background must include where the wealth/social status comes from and the extra expenses you incure due to it.

Wealth Rolls

  • Roll 1d6 using your Wealth modifier.
    • No Wild Die.
    • Doesn't Ace.
    • Can spend Bennie to reroll
  • You may make a Persuasion Check before trying to purchase an item.
    • Success = Decrease Target Number by 1 and a raise decreases it by 2
    • Fail = Increase Target Number by 1
    • Crit Fail = Item is unavailable and you may also incure the merchant's wrath in other ways
    • If the Target Number is higher than the character's Max dice possible and they succeed, then the character suffers -1 to Wealth rolls until the next leveling up
  • Bundling like goods: Each doubling in number of items increases the Target Number by 1
  • Reselling goods - Can trade "liberated" goods in for any item of 1 less Target Number Cost.
    • Successful Persuasion roll makes for an even trade.
    • Failed Persuasion roll leads to the item only being able to be traded for items of 2 less Target Number Cost.

Status Adjustment to the Roll

  • Poverty -1
  • Normal +0
  • Rich/Noble +2
