Magic Items XP Value

Post by treant_on_fire »

Does anyone know of a chart for a simpler way to assign XP value to magic items? It's not exactly easy to do so if you use magic items not in the actual Monsters & Treasure book, you have to compare with others and take a guess basically. I CAN do that, but it's more of a chore every time.

The best magic item chart that I know of is in the 1E AD&D Dungeon Master's Guide from 1980 or thereabouts. (It's also in the newer AD&D reprint book.) While not exactly C&C, it has a pretty nifty list of magic items and approximate XP values.
