Reply to Mike Hernandez Oren Ashkenazi January 5, 2015 at 1:26 pm Look man, those dice have been coming up failures all night. That means there has to be a success soon. It’s just statistics! Reply to Oren Ashkenazi Lev Lafayette January 5, 2015 at 7:20 pm Hey, at least he still has his sword. Swordbearer, afiak, was the first game not to worry about money. Instead it has a Social Status score and you were expected to be able to purchase whatever you social status allowed. If you found a treasure cache, that was marked in Social Status as well, but of course it was depleted according to the number of people it was divided against. If you found a cache equal or below your Social Status, it just meant you had some extra pocket change.
