Well that day I'm sitting on the docks of elerina searching for potential customers when one drop in. She ask me if I can help her get to Gloth. Of course no lah you need at least 2 - 3 people to do that. And a conincidence that all of the guys had logged out, so I told her we can get her there in the future. Then she ask about the price and I'm not able to quote her and she left with a promise to check back.

Well this shows that we need to have a standard way of charging prices, depending on the service, levels, time period and amount of people involved.

Personally I think no matter the rates we should give "discounts" to newbies cause if we manage to secure their trust its far easier for them to come back to us in the future, feel free to post.

hmm..thats a good point.
Ok, heres a standard price list, doesnt matter if anyone intends to charge highers just as long its reasonable.

Assassinations- regardless of lvls
1 person - 3000gp
2-3 persons - 9000gp
4-6 persons - 12000gp
Full Scale War - standard fee of 20000gp

Item hunting- Souls stones, EM tome, EM loot etc
I wont qoute a fix price on this. Depending on the client, if hes a new player and wont have that much money, charge him less. However, if hes able to fork up more gold, charge abit more.

Bodyguards and protection
5000gp for the week (real life)
This means, any Tempest Steel member online at that time should offer their skills to the client when seen online. This goes on for 1 standard real time week.

Powerlvling
This is abit of a grey area. Coz its not good RP but good business. So im leaving it to you guys. If someone asks for it, you may choose not to powerlvl him. The price is also up to you, but try not to charge so high.

Just wondering...if a low lvl character wants an item like a soulstone, would it not be better to offer him bodyguard protection to the area to get it? Otherwise it makes the areas between key places useless. If he wants it immediaty, either refuse him or charge a much higher price.

If he wants EM items, he should be charged alot more since its free loot. At least make it worth it for us too. We CAN do loot ourselves you know. =)

hmmm good point there maybe for quests for loot we can charge like 10% or more of the overall value for the loot or maybe 2 of the overall items of their choosing and our choosing.

In the case of the emerald loot, we would mainly provide assistance in killing the twins and the lord. But take only 1 item from the EM loot its self

I know we can do the loot, the issue isnt abt money but the idea of role play. We already have so much money in the guild fund!!!

Its not like we need the cash. Just try and have fun role playing, try not to make money a dominate factor

yar I know that its more about role play but I think if other people think that we are cheap mercenaries then we may get so many people wanting us to help them with EM loot just because its cheaper for them. But what the hell we will gain fame from it icon_biggrin.gif

Anyway you're right, its not important. But if each of us charge different prices, people will look for the person that offers the lowest. =)
