Hello everyone,


I know the MHI book gives a list of PUFF bounties per monster, but I was wondering when the players get the cash- what could they spend it on?

How would you calculate expenses like lifestyle, rent, etc?


And how much should weapons cost? Drones, ammo, vehicles, buildings, etc?


Let me know how you resolved this dilemma in the past.

Several books had lists of what things cost. I don't know if MHI does. If there isn't a list, just look online for prices. One of the characters wants to buy a house, find a listing and use that price for the game.

Since a living wage stateside is considered $15+ per hour, the GM could deduct $600+ per week for expenses.

I ended up letting players purchase their weapons upgrades for $1,000 per 1 real equipment point.  It seems to have worked out rather well- inflating the weapons costs simulated the additional effect of lifestyle costs as well.
