Always compensate your heroes accordingly! You would expect a world saving quest to pay at least…1000 gold, right?
Quest rewards are always something hard to nail down. I’ve seen the value of gold fluctuate between campaigns and I don’t think it’s something 5e ever really standardized between their own adventures. If they ever release a 5.5e I really hope they spend time on the currency and crafting systems!
Let me know how your Dungeon Master would respond to this sick twist!
I should have a DnD Tips video up on Monday. I’ll catch you guys then!
