@Maelchar: Okay, bud, you've got a tavern as I have it below. Now, YOU actually have to roll for it to make money... if that's what you want to do. Let me show you:
Now this is your tavern and these are the rooms that make up your tavern and actually help you generate capital. So you've got a choice to make on a daily basis.
Say you want to roll for gold only. You'd take your +17 diplomacy check and add the +10 from the Bar, the +7 from the Common Room, and the +2 from Storage.
Add it all up and you've got +36 on your check(it's actually called a skilled work check. If you scroll down just a bit from the link, it's right below unskilled).
Anyway, you can either roll for the check(as Nasira and Zeriax have done) OR you can take 10. If you take 10, you get +46 and then you divide that by 10 which gives you 4 gold and 6 silver for the day. You can do this every day if you wish. Heck, if you do that for 20 days for example, that's near 90g. Adds up pretty nicely.
Now if you don't want to roll for just gold, you can do this:
Go with the Bar +10 on Influence, Common Room +7 on gold, Storage +2 gold(because you have no choice on that one obviously).
You then roll TWO different checks but you still add your +17 diplomacy to both.
So, +27(+17 and +10) on your Influence roll, and +26(+17, +7, and +2) on your gold roll. Again, you can take 10 on any of these rolls for the sake of ease but it's up to you.
You clear 30 on your Influence roll, you get 3 points of capital earned at a cost of 45g(since it's 15g per point of Influence).
If you earn gold you will always divide the total by 10. But for the Big 4, you earn 1 point of capital for every 10 in your check. That same link above tells you how much it cost to earn capital or to just buy it outright.
You can basically roll however you want with what's listed. If you want to shoot for Influence, then you total the Bar and Common room and you've got +34 to your roll. Taking 10 gives you a minimum of 4 Influence earned which is pretty cool.
It just depends on what you prefer to do.
Hope this helps clear things up at least a little bit. Like Variel, I had to read this thing about a 1000 times it feels like. This Downtime is a real brain buster. It's FAR FAR more micromanaging than Kingdom Building. Kingdom Building is by the month whereas this is by the day.
