D&D 3.0: Tales from Mystara
The family is wealthy. Its members do no suffer from want. It is likely to own property on which it lives and other properties beside, and is likely to employ servants. It makes a good living, usually from trade or agriculture or from the earnings of one highly-paid professional in the family. The character’s “starting gold” represents the approximate amount the family gives to every youth leaving to start his own life, and does not constitute much of a dent in the monthly earnings. The family is hoping that the character will prove to be a worthy defender of the family honor during the years he spends on his own. Most family members have substantial quantities of good quality and personal effects, and can afford weapons and armor of choice. A character from this Social Class starts with 30gps extra.
