A Silver-Based Market with City & Rural Prices for Early Rules Games

I’ve prepared an equipment list for my open table, which:

Given the above perks, I thought it might be useful for others.

Here are the available formats:

The list is also included at the end of this post.

If you have a comment, an issue, would like to generate your own additional formats, or would like to collaborate, source files can be found on gitlab: https://gitlab.com/acodispo/open-market/

Collaboration is especially encouraged: add weights, add more equipment, fix errors, etc! Pull/merge requests will be reviewed & probably accepted!

It took me a few hours to get this content together in a usable format. If you end up using it, consider dropping a tip in my ko-fi jar.
