Price list which has been used with and is still in use with Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, DragonQuest, HârnMaster, RoleMaster and RuneQuest.  The intention of this system is to replace the monetary system and the (often woefully incomplete) price lists provided with the games system. However, it is assumed that one penny is equal to the basic unit of currency in the game system when it is required to translate prices from the host game to this system. For instance, one AD&D silver piece is equivalent to 1d in this system. Jonathan M.Davidson Mail JMD
