Spot on Alex, all the way through the adventure I describe the cows as 3 cows and the players boast they have stolen 3 cows of the Lonendi. I am never going to say you see a Lonendi herder with +1 to your wealth of cows in the pasture, or how many cows in the barn? Oh about +2.5 to your wealth.
A bit tongue in cheek I know, but all I was asking was whether there is an easy way of translating those 3 cows into a wealth increase for the player, after they have convinced the Clan Dad and cemented them with a HP?
