🍺 _meta ValueConversions

Value Conversion

This is an optional addition to the meta tag, if the economy that your homebrew uses is different from the standard 5e Dungeons and Dragons system this will help to avoid incorrect currency values.

5eTools uses a numerical value based on the amount of copper an item costs and converts between the currencies, hence that is what such a table would be based on.

An Example:

The _Meta is normally included in a full JSON, for this example it has been removed. See the link for how to develop the _meta.

	"currencyConversions": {
		"GiddyCurrency": [
				"coin": "ap",
				"mult": 1
				"coin": "bp",
				"mult": 0.001,
				"isFallback": true

In the above block of code:
  • "GiddyCurrency" is an example of the name of the currency conversion system, this is also what all items and similar should refer to using the valueConversion field .
  • The name of the conversion system ("GiddyCurrency" in this example) contains an array of objects.
  • Inside each object is two additional field and value pairs.
  • The "coin" field is a string that is what the name of the currency should be.
  • The "mult" field is a numerical value that describes how much each value is worth.
  • isFallback
"SS": [
		"coin": "gp",
		"mult": 0.0001
		"coin": "sp",
		"mult": 0.01
		"coin": "cp",
		"mult": 1

The above example uses a system called the Silver Standard, where 100cp = 1sp (hence 1/100 = 0.01) and 100sp = 1gp (hence 1/10000 = 0.0001).

Field List (Sources)

If you do not include the required fields (denoted with bold text) the JSON may pass JSONLint but will fail upon stitch.

Field Name Data Type Description Required
coin String Coin's Designation True
mult Whole Number Value Ratio relative to 'base' (GP) True
isFallback Boolean Is this currency the default valuation when the resulting ration gives a whole number?
