anyone have some good articles on fantasy economy stuff? i'm trying to keep it a bit grounded here, no magic swords that cost about the gdp of an entire region.
@potato I might have something for you in an old issue of Dragon Magazine. I'll check when I get off work tonight.

Strangely enough... I'd honestly suggest reading through plain old Economic History, and then modern economics? Understanding the real-world implications of monetary disparity and the economic power plays of our own history helped me in keeping Fantasy Finances™️ grounded. I also think it's worth contemplating why Vanilla 5e has a magic sword costing as much as it does, and what that vast price difference means fort he in-world consistency 💖 1/2

@potato If you're looking for a good read that tackles economics and politics in a fantasy world, I highly suggest The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson! It's not exactly a straight-up how-to guide, but it does some wonderful storytelling and worldbuilding around money and colonialism that might be nice to learn from ✨ 2/2
