Equipment question

daeldil's picture


I'm planning to run a Harnmaster gold campaign in the near future and I've got myself the player and gamemaster books as well as Shek'pvar. But one thing I can't seem to find anywhere in those books is a list of equipment.

I have prices and stats for weapons, armors, horses. But I can't seem to find a list of goods and services or general adventuring gears (backpack, ropes, lanterns, etc...).

Is this hidden somewhere in the books? Is there a supplement for it? Is this an oversight and no-one ever went around to create this?

I feel really silly asking this but it's the first system I ran into that doesn't seem to have any equipment lists.

Any help welcome.

Thank you!

Hi, Sam.

I think Robin's view was that prices and such are really mostly associated with the game world, rather than the rule set. However, HârnMaster Gold is designed to be run in the world of Hârn and Venârivè, and you will find price lists in publications such as Venârivè and HârnWorld that are suitable to your needs if you are running in those settings. Note that prices may differ from location to location in those settings; this is the driving force of trade, the lifeblood of Venârivan civilisation, so you may find that different price lists have slightly different values for certain goods. The trade maps in several of the world publications will give an overall idea of what drives these differences.

Now, if you are thinking of running in a world other than Kèthîra, you will, strictly speaking, need to create your own prices and economic background. You might find it useful or easier, though, to take one of the price lists from a published world and assume that the local economy generates the same set of values for whatever reasons - reasons that can be generated later, if the need arises...

I hope that helps!

The Venarive module has a comprehensive price list, containing both everyday goods and adventuring equipment.

You can also find some price lists at and in the Search Downloads field enter "Price Lists" and then follow the links. Everything on is free to download and is written by fans of all things Harn.

Hi Balesir

Thank you very much for your reply and explanation. I have both Emelrene and Venarive but was not far enough in my reading to notice the equipment list. There is a lot of lore to read.

Appreciate you took the time to explain.

Happy gaming!.

Hi Jan,

Thanks for your reply. I have Venarive but was not far enough in my reading and totally missed the equipment table.
Thanks for pointing it out.

Hi Lawrence,

Thank you for the link. I found a few price lists and also, from other players reply, I realized there is one in the Venarive book as well. I'm well set to answer my players's needs.

Happy gaming!

You're welcome, daeldil!

There is, indeed, a lot of lore, but most of it is good stuff, and can be savoured like good wine :-)
