Yeah forgot about the town drops. However, since drops at low dlvls are quite rare (sometimes feels like there is more veins than normal gold drops), it might even suffice to make the town level much less.

Actually, the static bonus could probably be just removed or changed to minuscule amounts ... it's not a big deal after a few levels, and it is the one that messes up town and the very few first levels (<10).

So maybe:

avg = 2 * lev + 5;
spread = lev + 2;

/* With no_selling, increase gold drops */
if (OPT(adult_no_selling)) 
	avg = 10 * lev + 5;
	spread = 5 * lev + 2;
Or something.
