So I wanted to open a dialogue for figuring out a price point for the three levels of Chemistry crafting that are vague at best. The only mention of a price that I can recall is in the description of Master grade Poisons in the Poison guide, stating that they are "outrageously expensive". This leaves Apprentice and Journeyman level Chemistry works woefully undefined, I suggest that we slap a base cost associated with each rank. I also believe there should be some case by case additional costs depending on the nature of the item but setting a base value to each rank would be greatly helpful to any and all using Chemistry.
I was given a suggestion by Ayano* to include materials from our Price List for Chemistry products, which I think is spot on and in line with the other crafting styles. However, I feel this list is too limiting and the values too cheap for the true value some products can grant. Here are the items on the current list that I could see being applicable:
- Simple Liquids(Oils, wax, etc) | 2,000 ryo/liter
- Flasks | 500/small | 1,000/medium | 1,500/large
Unfortunately, the above materials hardly constitute the "outrageously expensive" requirement for Master level Chemistry goods, even with outrageous quantities of the above six items. I’ll shoot out some rough numbers and hopefully, we can come up with something more concrete together if y’all like the idea!
Let me know your thoughts!
