Hi, I'm starting out running S&W for some friends & they've got enough money now that they might start wanting to buy some magic items.
Does anyone have a formula for the cost of items? I was thinking about something like 100gp/level of spell/charge. So a wand of invisibility with 5 charges would be 1000gp.
But I'm worried that if I set the formula too low, the players will be able to buy pretty powerful items at a cheap price.
Also, how do you handle having the players identify magic items. I know the spell isn't in B/X, but I couldn't find what level it is in AD&D 2nd ed. From a quick scan of ideas for B/X, the general consensus is that it should be very hard or expensive to have items identified.
