Ok that answers my question. Also any help on my wealth (in the rolls thread) would be appreciated, waiting on that before my character is finished.
That might help a little. Basically you have a wealth score, and generally depending on what it is in relation to the purchase dc of objects can tell you what your character can and can't afford. I'm going to bed now, but if you still don't understand it tomorrow then let me know and I'll see what I can do. I honestly hate the wealth system and wish it were easy to convert it to a simpler, money system.
