Unfournately that was long ago and I forgot much of those details. I could go through ICQ logs but it would take some time to do so.
I do know we both had major talks on a simple concept called Anchors. Based on historical data from about 8 websites and the books I read I argued over the costs for a simple 1 pound anchor. Finally came up with the pnp price. I expanded on it based on even weights of various tiers. The seagear article I just posted has the anchor costs which could be more or less used as a price for ore in some ways.
Problem again comes down to smelting and getting the good stuff out of the ore and not all cultures can do that.
