That's not the issue. Offer Zuckerberg 100 million and he'll show up in a town of 300. The issue is that the town probably can't afford the wizard.
He'd tell you that the cost doesn't matter, because it is government service for paying taxes.
Good God man. Can't you just stop with the arguing for the sake of arguing? I agreed with you in multiple posts, including one where I quoted you that a character should be able to escape as part of their background. So yes, I have obviously been following the discussion.
Good God Man why did you then say "Except for very rare exceptions, small villages probably won't even have locks that are that good" in response to my post? It was literally a post saying that Arcane Lock is cheaper and "more" reasonable than the glyph of warding. Not that it was reasonable, just that it was "more" reasonable.
Yes, I'm aware that a small village shouldn't have masterwork locks, but I can't even get to the part of small villages shouldn't have enchanted locks worth hundreds of gold, let alone saying the locks should be of poor quality.
