Treasure By Adventure Module

Here's that list of published modules with the treasure values.  As I do more OSR reviews, I'll add them below.  Notes:

Treasure
Assumes party clears everything (doubtful), but doesn't loot the home bases.

Levels
I used a party of 5 PC's for estimating how many levels could be gained from the treasure in the module.  If your group is larger or uses a lot of henchman, you'll need to adjust the estimates.

Density
For dungeons, density can help identify the proportion of combat  to exploration.  The number in parentheses after density is the number of keyed encounter areas.

============================================
B2 THE KEEP ON THE BORDERLANDS
Levels 1-3

Treasure:  31,000*
Levels: 2.5

*Excludes robbing the Keep itself

B3 PALACE OF THE SILVER PRINCESS (Green cover)
Levels 1-3

Treasure:  16,000*
Levels:  1.5
Density:  50% (38)

*The Palace has about 9,000gp in loot; the Princess will give the group 3,000gp per person if they didn't loot the palace, 1,500gp per person if they loot.  Either way, the group should get at least 15-16k in gold pieces.
