Concerning Market Selling Prices

Postby Fayne » Mon May 04, 2015 11:22 am

So, I noticed that carvings, when sold at the market, are, to say the least, strange.

First of all, a regular, say, hound carving, will sell for 10 riln, while a detailed hound carving will sell for, 10 riln.

Secondly, intricate carvings sell for 11 riln, which is strange, because when you compare the descriptions given when examining an intricate and a detailed carving, a detailed carving sounds like it is higher quality than and intricate carving, which is made even stranger by the fact that detailed carvings are easier to get than intricate ones, and intricate ones sell for more. Of course, it may be that intricate is higher quality, since it sounds better than detailed, and is harder to get, but it's impossible to tell because examining carvings does not show actual quality.

Carvings have a different set of quality descriptors than smithed goods (detailed, intricate, etc.), and not a lot of variability in prices. As it sounds like you've surmised, intricate carvings are of a higher quality than detailed ones.

It seems that way, but when examining or looking at them, their descriptions sound as though they are of lower quality than detailed.
