In Rappan Athuk, which is a sandbox and is NOT balanced to give a typical amount of wealth (there is some VERY valuable treasure in this campaign), your party will have the opportunity to keep them. At the same time, new characters will no longer have Wealth By Level gold to form their starting equipment anymore.
Here are the rules:
- Your party needs to store unused magic items in a secure place. This is the party’s “vault.” I will keep a running list of items in this vault.
- Any new character will have ONE-QUARTER the typical wealth of a PC character for your level, or the typical wealth of an NPC character of your level, whichever is LOWER.
- The new character also gets to freely choose items that are in the vault.
- This also means that if any character dies and the party has to run away, the loot might still exist somewhere!
