  1. The best way to handle “more treasure than they can carry” is to make the treasure things like bales of saffron strands, heavy carpets, and fragile vases of spun glass and starlight.

    DW doesn’t specify how many coins make up a weight because, well, for most of history, and in most adventure fantasy, gold and silver coins were INCREDIBLY portable.

    If you picture coins as being made of silver and about the size of an American dime, they’re about 2.5 grams each.  40 is a kilogram, or 2.2 lbs.

    A gold coin of the same dimensions would be about 1.9x the weight of the silver coins.  40 gold coins would be about 1.9 kilos.

    Both would comfortably fit in one hand. 🙂

  2. In my games, it’s usually like: you fill up your load with treasure; when you stop to count the money, for every 1 weight of coins, you get 100+1d10 coins. For other things, go exponential, like when you sell rubies, you gain 500+1d100 per ruby (=1 weight) and so on.

  3. Oh, I checked in my copy of the book, but in page 324 there’s no mention of the weight of the coins. I’ll use the 100-1, anyway.

    Thank you all! : )

  4. The page number might be different in your copy for whatever reason, but the entry is in the General Equipment Tags, under “n weight”
