In our quest, we saved approximately 50 villagers. Their village has been burned down (by normal fire).
They are returning to the village and are going to try to rebuild.
It's the middle summer in an area with the normal range of weather.
We would like to give them enough gold so they can reasonably rebuild. At the same time, being adventurers on a quest to save the world from demons, we'd like to keep as much gold as we can to buy equipment.
The party is level 6, but isn't able to return to the village to help rebuild. The villagers are on their own.
There are a handful of towns reasonably nearby (3 days to a few weeks).
We are using the normal 3.5e rules for gold in a mid-low magic world.
Approximately how much gold would it take for the villagers to rebuild by winter?
You can assume they have a blacksmith, other craftsmen, farmers, and a few leaders.
