Credits to dollars ratio?


Advice


There are a lot of interesting items to buy that aren't in the CRB(for example, a plasma cutter or thermite), but pricing them can be tricky. It would help to have a rough ratio. Going off the price of clothing, 5-10 dollars to a credit seems right.

Anyone else have a number?

My PbP group estimated a $12 per credit exchange rate by crossing the prices for food and clothing. Do remember though that unlisted gadgets cost 5 credits according to the Technology section of the core book.

Thanks for the suggestion.

5 credits only really works for cheap items. If I wanted to buy an expensive unlisted item, its nice to have a rough ratio.


I think you all are overestimating how much a credit is worth. The Handbook states that most places rarely bother with dealing in fractions of credits so automatically round up to the nearest credit. Can you picture having to pay the equivalent to $12 for a pack of gum or a candy bar? I think the low prices on things like food and basic clothing is due to advanced production and manufacturing, not because the credit is worth a lot. I would put the credit as being between $1 to $2.
