The Mystwood Economy  

The Town Economy

Everyone will have an Occupation in the town, and thus something to contribute. Some Occupations are paid at check in, other occupations harvest Materials to sell, and still others must rely on the inhabitants of the town to purchase their skills. The economy should sustain itself with limited interaction by the Staff.

Accumulation of wealth will be slightly inflated to demonstrate the time in between events.

Typical Cost of Goods and Services

Here is a short list of typical goods and services, to give you an idea of what money is worth.
