  • Starting cash at higher levels?

    Would the chart below be the default SW deluxe edition values for starting funds before modifications by the GM?

    Rank base Rich Filthy Rich
    Novice 500 1,500 2,500
    Seasoned 1,000 3,000 5,000
    Veteran 2,000 6,000 10,000
    Heroic 4,000 12,000 20,000
    Legendary 8,000 24,000 40,000

    Not exactly. That would be the "quick rule of thumb" not the "default."

    The default is "Additional goods, equipment, or other assets must be determined by the Game Master and the particular setting." So similar but putting the cart before the horse so to speak. The GM makes the call and could use the "rule of thumb" to help, but it also doesn't need to play into the equation at all. Which is slightly different from starting there as a default and then the GM adjusting since that can come across as presuming that level of wealth as an expectation which isn't guaranteed at all.

    It's a subtle distinction I hope I've clarified. Ultimately, the choice is the GMs first and foremost.

    Hope that helps.
