Minor pricing oddity

Something in v4 has substantially altered the values of light sources.

In 3.3 :
General store sells Torches for 2
Lanterns found in the BM are sold for 270


In v4 :
Torches are now 7
Lanterns can be sold to General store for ~320, and will sell back to you for ~620. Black market prices are 91 and 1638.

That is for standard, nothing special light sources.

Yes. This is in line with takkaria's changes to torches - you can't refuel them any more, they only ever give radius-1 light.

Basically, light just got a bit more scarce and a bit more valuable. If anything it's not quite expensive enough at the higher levels (lanterns of brightness are still too cheap).

EDIT: didn't spot that this was in the v4 forum - these changes are in 3.4-dev too ... (but they won't hurt so much there, because money's not quite as scarce).
