    PFRPG - Character Wealth Extension

    As a GM for Pathfinder, I find myself tediously calculating each character's wealth in an Excel spreadsheet.
    This extension adds a chat command to calculate a character's wealth in gold pieces from the items in their inventory.
    You can also calculate the party's wealth and all characters wealth, including those not in the party.
    Hope some people find this useful. Please provide feedback or any bugs you find.

    • 3.5E
    • 5E
    • PFRPG


    Github Link:

    Tested on both FGC v 3.3.11 and FGU 4.0.0. Works on both.

    /charwealth [character name]
    "character name" is the exact name, including spaces, of the character you wish the calculate the wealth for.

    /charwealth -all
    This command prints out all characters' wealth and the running total

    /charwealth -party
    This command prints out all party members' wealth from the party sheet and the running total

    • You must be the Host in order to use this command.
    • You must enter the exact character name you wish to calculate the wealth for. Spaces in the name are okay.
    • It looks at each item and creates a running total of the character's wealth.
    • The format of an item's cost must be a number, followed by a space, followed by the cost type.
    • The number must contain numerical characters. Commas can be used.
    • There must be a unit type for the cost or else the item will be excluded.
    • The cost types must be either "pp", "gp", "sp", or "cp". The letters for these can have any case. Any currencies besides these will result in that item being excluded from the total.
    • 1 pp = 10 gp; 1 gp = 1gp; 1 sp = 0.1 gp; 1 cp = 0.01 gp
    • If an item is not added to the character's wealth, a chat message will be displayed with the item name and a description.
    • Gold pieces by default are not a part of the character's inventory. These must be added manually to a character's wealth.
    • Compatible with 5E. However, there are items in the DMG whose cost is a range. These are not calculated into total wealth. Also, electrum is not supported.

    Compatibility with Other Extensions:
    This does not modify any existing code besides adding a chat command. The calculated value is outputted to the chat.


    GNU GPLv3
    This means you can commercialize it or do anything else with it, as long as they give you credit for the parts of your work they use and they too release it under the same license.

    v1.0.0 - Initial release for 3.5E and PFRPG rulesets
    v1.1.0 - Added support for 5E ruleset and added "-party" and "-all" options

    Future Improvements:
    • Automatically add a character's gold into the character wealth
    • Possibly add a UI element
    • Done - Add ability for GM to calculate each character's wealth from a single command, instead separate commands

    • Thanks to FeatherRin for getting the ball rolling on v1.1.0

    Since the first comment is mine, I will add the newest version I made here for easy access.

    What's more in my version?
    - Handles estimated item ranged prices such as: '101 - 500 gp'

    Wow, why didn't I notice this before 'wasting' my time building this into my inventory UI...
    Honestly, I like your approach of posting it in chat much better.

    Hi FeatherRin,

    Thank you for testing it with 5e. I don't use 5e, so I didn't test it for that ruleset.

    I would post it but your license dosen't allow me. Let me know if you want it.
    Yes. I can add it to the code if you are willing to share.

    My personal upgrades (Tested only in 5E)
    -Removed fancy lines to fit the all command.
    -Added "/charwealth all" catch, which outputs each pc's total item wealth and also the total party item wealth.
    -Currently ignores all characters with 0 wealth even when solo checked, but you dont need it anyway. (I was too lazy to bother)

    Hey, its me again!
    If you want player coins included as well, stick this in before nodeInventoryItems
    	local nodeInventoryTreasure = DB.getChildren(nodeChar, "coins");
    	if nodeInventoryTreasure then	-- If the inventory list is not nil --		
    		for k, nodeCoin in pairs(nodeInventoryTreasure) do	-- For every item in the inventory list --
    			local sCoinName = DB.getValue(nodeCoin, "name", ""):upper();
    			local sCoinAm = DB.getValue(nodeCoin, "amount", "");
    			if sCoinName == "GP" then
    				nRunningTotal = nRunningTotal + sCoinAm;
    			elseif sCoinName == "PP" then
    				nRunningTotal = nRunningTotal + sCoinAm * 10;
    			elseif sCoinName == "SP" then
    				nRunningTotal = nRunningTotal + sCoinAm * 0.1;
    			elseif sCoinName == "CP" then
    				nRunningTotal = nRunningTotal + sCoinAm * 0.01;
    			elseif sCoinName .. " " == " " then -- Don't spam for empty cells. --
    			else -- Currency is defined, but is not a standard currency --
    				sChatMessage = "" .. sCoinName .. ": Excluded. Non-standard currency used";
    Happy bodging!

    ps: might as well credit me in the xml
    pps: elifs break automatically, you dont need to break them.
    ppps: i think everything is core func anyway, just set it to any and let people try it out without guarantee
    pppps: no one uses electrum, dont even bother

    ...also here's a "concat" to solve the '-' problems.

    It grabs the second (highest) number of the two with minimal effort and no (extra) memory usage. At higher levels it's inaccurate, but at that point I doubt people care.

    '101 - 500 gp' => '500 gp'
    '10,000 - 50,000 gp' => '50,000 gp'

    				if string.match(sItemCost,"-") then
    					sItemCost = string.sub((string.match(string.reverse(sItemCost), "(.+)%-")):reverse(), 2);

    It has to go right before this part, otherwise it will mess up the conversion.
    local aCostData = StringManager.split(sItemCost, " ", true);

    Here's the file for those who can't wait for WatBot2ndBrkfst and can't do it for themselves.
    -Counts player money (coins/treasure) towards total.
    -Support for estmated range prices such as '101 - 500 gp', uses higher number.
