How is the total value of the equipment given in a character template (such as the ones in the classes of the Player’s Companion) determined?
My understanding was that the template in the core rules had roughly 105 gp of stuff, as that is the mean of 3d6 x10, and the templates in the Companion have roughly 35, 55, 65, 75, 85, 95, etc, as they are meant to map to rolls of 3-4 (30 or 40 gp), etc.
But I’ve never deconstructed them to see how true this is.
That’s correct. Here and there the numbers are fudged a tiny bit.
So 105gp it is… Thanks!
