This page is for recording party documentation/notes. Bylaws, contracts made with NPCs, etc. Things that go in the filing cabinet that Jervis will need to carry around.
These rules of Loot division were in draft/debate as of the start of Chapter 15:
Section 1: While mission is ongoing/party still in danger the following rules apply
- If someone can use it right away for the benefit of our survival and success in an adventure, they can claim the item for use
- If more than one person claims the item, the battle leader is arbiter for combat related items and the party leader arbiter for non-combat items
- If time permits, the losing party can request a full group vote to reverse the leader's decision by majority consensus.
Section 2: Once the party is safely away/mission is completed, the following rules apply
- All items will be analyzed for magic and appraised at group expense. If this service is not immediately available, they'll continue in party service as determined during the unsafe phase. If we have another adventure before this is completed, the leaders re-evaluate any claims on the items based on the new adventure. Same rules apply for overruling their decision
- Once all items are analyzed and appraised, anyone in the group can buy it at half price from the group. If there is more than one claimant they bid each other up. If the price reaches the full retail price of the item, there is no reason to bid up since both sides could just buy a comparable item. If we reach full price, the two parties will be arbitrated by preferably a trusted third party, or by a group majority vote if no such third party is available. The arbitration will be who has the most need of the item immediately rather than who benefits the group most.
- Individuals may not buy the item at half price and immediately sell it. Anyone buying from the group must intend to use the item
- An item may be so purchased on credit from the group, with the group retaining ownership but not having sell rights until the item is paid off or returned. An item may not be bid up on credit. If one person has money now and the other doesn't, the one with money can buy it now
- Items which no one in the group wants to buy, but are of collective value to the group, a simple majority vote can choose to keep the item rather than selling it, temporarily postponing any potential profits from the item.
- All remaining items are sold at best price
- Profits from sales are distributed equally, with party funds getting a share. This covers our food, lodgings and other items on adventures
- If party funds get higher than needed, a simple majority vote can order a distribution of some of the funds which will be portioned out to the group in equal shares
