Athasian Equipment List

I have a goal of making a comprehensive equipment list for Dark Sun. The books contradict each other when it comes to prices, but I tried to keep it as canon as possible.
I'm working to convert them all to Google docs, so you can comment.

    1. You're welcome. Feel free to let me know if I missed anything.

  2. Hi there! Just wanted to let you know that these are super useful and well-done! Thanks!

  3. Thank you. They're still a work in progress, as I realize things I have forgotten. If you discover anything that should be added, feel free to let me know.

  4. Thanks! I put your data into an Excel file and then uploaded it to a Google Sheet. I'm adding other prices in as I find them, and of course you can download the sheet and use it as you will.

  5. Oops. Forgot the URL. It is

  6. Great job, at least on the Slave costs (the only one I looked at). I made my own table prior reading this and had similar values for the player races but I would increase the Mul to at least 10x based on some Dark Sun Cannon. And put the Half-Giant at maybe 7x. I guess my table compared to your costs would have my gladiators at 7th level.
    Dwarf 15, Elf 5, Half-Elf 7, Half-Giant 50, Halfling 3, Human 7, Mul 80, Thri-Kreen 30
    The above slave prices are based on the following sources related to Mul and Human costs.

    The Verdant Passage, Chapter 7: A Bidding War, Page 145
    “Mul gladiators could be had for eighty gold.”
    Of note: the winning bid for Sadira, a Half-Elf, Page 146
    “Agis stood, calling, "Ninety-five!".”

    TSR2433 - Dark Sun Monstrous Compendium Appendix II, Terrors Beyond Tyr, Page 72
    “A slave trader can make as much on the sale of a mul as he might with a dozen humans.” ( (80/12=6.6 rounding up to 7gp)

    DSR2 - Dune Trader, Page 73 (Supply and Demand, Trade Goods Prices)
    and Page 83 A House Inika Caravan Trade Route Map
    Base Price (C) = Balic, Gulg
    Base Price x 2 (B) = Draj, Raam, Tyr, Urik
    Base Price x 0.75 (D) = Nibenay (0.75 estimated)

    I based the other race costs from other non-cannon DS related posts, a little with what I could find on the topic with Roman history, and Lords of Madness: The Book of Aberrations, Page 101.

    1. Thank you for the canon references. I'll have to look the costs over and make corrections.
