A list of puns related to "Cagaster of an Insect Cage"
Have you noticed the easter egg "It's been ten years... Griffith" at the beginning of ep. 2?
My players have a human sized adamantine cage because I let them draw from a nerfed deck of many things. Yeah, yeah I know, but I read through it and didn't blink because how much could adamantine cost per pound? like 3 times steel? So what?
Well no, turns out I'm getting values between 250 and 1340 gp per POUND for the stuff. The cage I described has to be a couple hundred pounds, meaning they have a minimum of 62,500 gold on their hands.
Is this right?
Obviously I have to backtrack now and say that the cage wasn't pure adamantine, or change the cost, or something. Is there anything else I can do to salvage this?
Edit: Thank all of you for the feedback!The group is 6 players, 7th level, using ABP except that they still have to buy weapons and armor, so they are at 70% of WBL.
A 60 lb cage vs a 250+ lb cage makes a big difference. I think what I'm going to do is work backwards from how much I think is reasonable for them to have. 6k each sounds fine, so
> 6,000 x 6 = 36,000 gold
> 36,000 gold / 300 gold/lb = 120 lbs of cage
The setting is a pretty authoritarian empire, so they would definitely be interested in a medium humanoid sized adamantine cage, and the group just (reluctantly) accepted a job from the secret police/inquisition. But it might take some time for them to get the money together to buy the cage since they're not in a capital city.
The bee’s knees.
They were my deter ants.
Hey, I'm Lee Fang and I'm an investigative reporter for The Intercept. I focus on the intersection of money and politics, but I cover a wide variety of topics, from health care and climate change to the political strategies that shape the direction of society. In recent years, I've covered the integration of the military with Silicon Valley, the influence of Saudi Arabia over American policymakers, and the internal clashes for the heart and soul of the Democratic Party.
I'm looking forward to answering questions about my latest feature investigation, The Playbook for Poisoning the Earth, a comprehensive look at neonics, one of the main pesticides fueling the mass-die off of a range of insect life. Lobbying documents and emails reveal a vast strategy by the pesticide industry to influence academics, beekeepers, and regulators, and to divert attention away from the potential harm caused by pesticides.
