This is basically PHB with the added fun of the degree of success or failure affecting the price.
Appraise will be used todetermine the value of anything other than mundane goods and services. For simplicity, in this campaign gems are a form of currency with fixed value. Appraise will be used for jewelry, art, finely crafted items, any masterwork weapon or armor or anyything made of a unique material (ie Darkwood shield) or to put it another way, anything not appearing on the charts in the equipment section of the PHB.
