Commodity Cards I: Food and Drink

ADD TO WISHLIST >
PDF
$2.50

As parties of adventurers roam the globe in search of treasure, not everything they find will be gold, silver, or precious gems. Sometimes the party will come across more mundane, yet still valuable, commodities that are bought and sold every day and help keep the world economies going. How do you determine what the value of a bushel of wheat, or a barrel of wine should be? If a party should ?liberate? a cargo of pepper from a merchant ship, what price will they get when they sell it in the next port?

To answer this question Tangent Games has created Commodity Cards. Commodity Cards are cards that the GM can print out and use to determine the type, quantity, and value for different commodities. Commodity Cards I: Food and Drink only deals with those commodities that are edible, or can be used to make edible food.

Commodity Cards I: Food and Drink contains 300 different commodities for use in your game.

    Some of the standard uses for the Commodity Cards are:
  • Used as random treasure for mundane items in caravans and merchant or pirate ships.
  • Used to determine the inventory for a merchant's stall or store in the local marketplace.
  • Used as random treasure in dungeons (even orcs and goblins have to eat, and they make raids on local villages for these items).
    Some other, non-standard uses for the Commodity Cards are:
  • To depict items in a caravan the party is guarding.
  • To indicate payment the party must make to a local warlord or evil dragon so a local village does not come to harm.
  • To determine wholesale cost for PCs wanting to open their own business.

Also included in this product are rules for Haggling and determining how supply and demand affects the sale price of a commodity. In addition, we have also included tables so that you can randomly determine a commodity without printing off a single card for those GMs that prefer to do everything online.

VERY useful tool. These massive (but not TOO massive) charts allow you to tailor your more "mundane" finds and allow you to quickly furnish your areas with "stuff" without having to say, "ok, you search and find 6 silver pieces and a bunch of other non-va [...]

I am really not happy with this product at all. Based on the product description, which says that the cards "depict" various items, I expected illustrations. Instead, every "armor" card has the same picture (a fuzzy suit of plate mail) [...]

I like this series ... it's very comprehensive and while I don't know how compatible it is with D20 (particuarly D&D), I find it's depth and thoroughness to be very good. I printed them all off and have them as a great reference. LIKED [...]

I'm actually going to post the same review for Commodity Cards 1 through 5 since I bought the bundle and have the same things to say about them: The Commodity Card series makes it quite easy to generate "mundane" (and more realistic) treasure [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
