Pankration Training Prices

So...what IC/OOC reason is there that the Pankration school charges 8 cents a IG month for all you can train and most people pay 8 cents for one lesson? Just seems a little skewed.

Why not have Ludus trainers for Animus, Wolves, CL that charge 8 cents a IG month?

Discuss.

Because not everything in this game needs to be exactly the same.

This is truth.

I have no problem with Pankration schooling costing hardly nothing at all.
I do have a problem with dropping 18 talents to train three moves.

Whatever though.

It has always seemed to me that:

1: Most all of the other trainers in the game are set up as freelance instructors.

2: Pankration trainer was setup as a sort of school that would just charge tuition, not a per lesson charge.

Of course that is just my take on the situation.

Training one skill from 1-90 is 6 talents for anything but pank. So...200 denars vs. 9375 denars is a big difference. I'm not saying make them equal, but jeez...that's a 470% markup.

I think you mean a 4700% markup
