What the world builder IS: This is a book containing many types of lists; some of these are random generators (body
parts, personality, room decorations and more). Some are simply defined, such as arms and armor, shields and helms.
Some have been organized with a dictionary-encyclopedic entry. Others have random dice tables applied to them. The
illustrated armor/weapons section is followed up by a four page chart for d20 rules that give all the damage, AC bonus,
and so forth for most of the unique (non PHB) armor and weapons covered in the text. This book is advantageous when
creating a campaign setting. It is a diverse reference, aiding in creating geographic features of continents, or govern-
ment structures, the titles of a kingdom’s nobility, or when sitting down to create detailed locations for adventures; the
contents of dungeon rooms, or laying out terrain features in the surrounding wild. The herbs (250 types by magical
property), gems (with magic spell associations), and precious metals sections give you magical effects, definitions, and
so forth. There are lists of crimes (now more than just pick-pocketing is illegal). There are also charts for material strength
and hardness so you can more accurately portray the effects and strengths of differing woods, stones, gems and other
material (tensile strength of ropes). 60 different traps. 50+ occupations for craftsmen. A random chart for generic spell
effects. Stock-in-trade, Geographics, and Dwellings: Flesh to add to a world. Why lists of stuff? World building in a
fantasy game has much to do with describing the surroundings of the player characters in great detail from the mundane
to the bizarre. This book facilitates this important facet of design.

What the book is NOT: It is not a how-to manual. The World Builder is Volume II of a world-building series detailing the
typical “Gygaxian Fantasy World” and is a “descriptionary” giving the designer and the writer a plethora of information
he/she can use to grant the fantasy setting of his choice greater verisimilitude. The world builder in many areas is
organized in a hierarchal fashion. For example, the fantasy cities section lists first all of the different sorts of buildings
common to such a setting and then breaks that down into construction materials, and then into architectural elements,
then further down into window and door types and styles, and then moves into interior design. Interior deals with
everything from the ceiling to the floor, and lists “things” for reasons of placement in actual adventure locations,
arranged by room type. Torture chamber, wizards lab, etc.

A note from the editors

Silver, Gold and Money in a Fantasy World and d20

Coins or any other varying types of mediums of exchange have been a part of the human experience for many thousands
of years. Generally fashioned from small chips of various metals, shells, valuable stones, ceramic beads and even spices,
coins and their counterparts took on a wide variety of shapes and sizes, not to mention weight. Earlier societies made
coins from gold, silver, copper, bronze and other metals which they deemed valuable. The value of a particular coin and
its metal varied wildly from region to region. As history progressed two types of coins rose to dominance, bronze in
China and silver in Greece and Rome.* The overwhelming power and influence of these three societies in their regions
left an imprint on the all the adjacent regions. These metals were chosen for a wide variety of reasons far too numerous
to mention here, but frequently had, as their basis, some type of common medium of exchange. In Greece, for example
the Ox served as the universally prized commodity upon which the money systems was based. Suffice it to say, that
values ranged from area to area.

What then to do about money. Anyone creating or dealing with a fantasy world is met with the question of how to
establish a money market system. Is one to use coins or some of other medium of exchange? What are coins? What
metals are used in their making? How is value set? These are questions which, if realistically dealt with, are almost
impossible to answer unless you concentrate on one society, one culture, one people and one time. It is doubtful if the
Greek stater (silver or gold) would have meant as much to the Chinese merchant as to an Anatolian one. What then to

Mr. Gygax chose the simplest approach. By following the modern standard of the dollar, he establishes a clear value in
dollar signs of any given metal. Gold for instance is worth $500. Silver, a less precious item is worth $10 and bronze,
at even less, at just under $1. His values are roughly based on those that dominated the Renaissance when gold began
to establish itself as the common metal with the greatest value and are set at a 1-10-500 standard.

As concerns the d20 game, there is no correct equation of the standard set by Mr. Gygax. This is largely due to the
established rate of exchange in d20 where a gold coin is only 10 times more valuable than a silver one.† Seemingly gold
in d20 is undervalued immensely or more plentiful than historically available on earth. However, the Core rule books
nowhere state how much of any given metal is in any given coin only that each coin weighs a third of an ounce. In order
to follow the clear and logical guidelines set down in the text we have developed a value of metals chart specifically for
the d20 game. You will find that chart on page 103. Furthermore the equations listed below allow for greater cohesion
between Mr. Gygax’s text and the d20 system. They are developed off of a silver standard. Silver being the base.

$1 is roughly equivalent to 5copper coins
$10 is roughly equivalent to 5silver coins
$500 is roughly equivalent to 25gold coins

This assumes that one silver coin possesses .2 ounces of silver in it and that one gold coin possesses .04 ounces of gold
in it. It can be assumed that gold coins are smaller than silver coins or are simply coated in gold.

* These notes reference the Sung Dynasty and it is recognized that the Chinese also produced iron coins. Greece used
gold and electrum and Rome bronze as well.

† As I write this gold is valued on the market at $240 per ounce, silver at $4 per ounce.
