The lightning lizard's eyes are worth 150 silver each, thus 300 total. It is mentioned they are treasures worth legend points. Are they worth the full 300 legend or a fraction of? Are they worth it when they sell them or upon collection?

I am playing Earthdawn First Edition.

  • \$\begingroup\$ well, it doesn't cover the same thing, considering i asked both question. Plus that question is simpler, and might receive a less complete answer that wouldnt cut it for the other question. \$\endgroup\$ – Mouhgouda Nov 7 '14 at 12:31

    \$\begingroup\$ It doesn't exactly… but maybe it should? Do we really need two questions about how assigning LPs from creature parts works? \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Nov 7 '14 at 15:58

The Awarding Legend Awards section in Gamemaster's Compendium is quite brief.

It only tells us that

An adventure should provide a payoff of one Legend Award’s worth of Treasure Legend Points per character, and should include the treasures that many creatures possess. When you are deciding what creatures you want the characters to meet, remember to note any treasure those creatures carry and include it in your total Treasure Legend Points. Creature treasure is listed in each creature’s description.

Exactly nothing in Player's/Gamemaster's Compendium tells us the correlation between Legend Points and treasure price, but 1 sp per Legend Point is a good baseline estimate. You may consult the table of appropriate award sizes per circle at Gamemaster's Compendium, p95, to correct the LP-to-sp ratio as needed.

Liquidating the (bloody) bits is another thing altogether; the party needs to find a buyer, and even then, Haggle rolls could affect the price.

  • \$\begingroup\$ i guess the LP should be awarded upon showing to people who might be interested if the whole thing is dependent on the value. Not a bad idea, the haggle roll. Thank you, friend. \$\endgroup\$ – Mouhgouda Nov 7 '14 at 16:10
