    its such a pain in the arse to price each bod seperate in the book!!!

    surely we can have an option to price all the bods in the same book at the same price!!!!


    please!!!!

    I'd like to be able to turn a BOD book in and get as many rewards as there are BODS, and get that many BODs back. I know that's a rather silly request, but man... I hate turning them in.

    I've asked for exactly this, several times, for years.

    Count this as another vote for multi-BOD pricing... All my BOD books are of BODs that I sell for the exact same value each.

    Doing this might make some of the people storing BODs in Vendors actually sell some of them as a sideline.

    vendor storage should stop. Bods ought to have a default cost of like 500gp

    Other than deliberately killing the BOD system, what other reason would you have for this?

    The ability to store BODs in BOD Books on Vendors was ALWAYS INTENDED. Granted, the intent was to encourage BOD Trading (but, 99% of the time led to BOD Hoarding instead). That is why even PRICED BODs in the BOD books don't count toward vendor rentals, either. Technically, the BODs aren't really worth anything to the possessor - they are contracts that if filled act as "Pay the Bearer on Demand" with the issuing type of NPC.

    The simple fact is that many of the people with BODs on vendors using them for storage WOULD sell many of them, if they weren't so %#$%#^#%^ tedious to price one by one.

    I would, however, be in favor of not allowing filled BODs to be put into books on vendors. That's a whole other matter from this, as it's a silly way to sell hammers and runic kits without having to pay vendor fees (and as books of filled BODs played a part in the runic duping schemes of the past, I would make filled BODs not shard transferable in books, requiring they be outside books for the trip).

    Maybe more like tagging the BODs instead. Give each a tag based off their reward weight. Then a BOD books has option table that prices can be set for weights. Any BOD dropped in that book is auto priced based on the settings. Fresh made books are at default of no sale for each weight.
