More offerings from the Domain Game today. (I have a surprise for the upcoming King of Dragon Pass post.)
Today I give you the early draft form of the comprehensive hireling and followers list I have been working on. The list is long (over 120 professions at this point) and somewhat involved—we're getting into spreadsheet territory now—so if you are interested boogie over to my sister HC site and download the file marked “labor costs”.
I can really use some input here (pretty please) as I am aiming for a nice and full set of options capable of covering periods ranging from Antiquity to the Early Renaissance for the source book. So any suggestions no matter how arcane, fantastic, historically-specific, or wacky are appreciated.
Also you may notice my deflation of expert and craft hirelings wage costs, a departure point from most editions of D&D classic or not. Definitely let me know if you think this is potentially workable in your own home campaigns as I was aiming for a balance between something close to historical (or at least internally logical) wage rates and compatibility with the rates as presented in the game.
