Eh. This is tripping me up again.
Ok, I have some characters who have stumbled upon 3 wyvern hatchlings. They want to train them for riding / war.
I have an exotic trainer that can do this for them. He charges 250gp per month, based on the trainer rules.
However, since commissioning is supposed to incorporate the trainer’s fees, does this mean exotic trainers go faster than the 1gp per day for animals?
Let’s say I set the price of a trained riding wyvern as 1000gp (just making that up). Typically, by the commissioning rules, it’d cost 1000 days (1gp/day) to train the wyvern to ride. However, 1000 days is like 30 months. The fees for the trainer would then be 7500gp if charged 250gp for each month. So, the riding wyvern suddenly has a training value of 7500gp vs. the listed value of 1000gp… Which, is out of sync it seems.
I guess my real question is, how should I handle exotic mounts being trained? How should I set prices of the training, the value of the mount, etc. And, how does this work with the 1gp per day animal training time?
