I'm a Master Chemist (34,065 points). I'm very disapointed with the prizes. A high majority of ploteers got over 20,000 points, and the top prize (for most people, I believe) is only 12,000 points. The top prizes are only worth about 100-175k, too. I'm not going to complain more, since a prize is better than no prize.

Yeah , same here ^^ I have no problem with the relatively low value of the prizes because in my opinion I didn't need as much work to do this plot (which I didn't even finish, by the way ^^;;;)as some of the others, like LDP... although admittedly LDP would've been easier if anyone had noticed the toenail paint thing XD

I still don't know what I'm going to get, so I did an anaysis and got interesting results.
On March 8, 2006, I looked up almost all of the plot prizes on the shop wizard (and trading post for Ghost PB). The results are out of my points, 34,065
Most prices are 1-3k less than the cheapest amount on the Shop Wizard.
I skipped some items purposly becuase they were not as profitable.
Here is the results I got:
Hissi Oil Keychain (160np ea.) x 1,362 = 217,920
Talking Tombstone Alarm Clock (7k ea.) x 68 = 476,000
Haunted Woods Graveyard Reference, 57N1064 through R51-8AHS (7k ea) x 68 = 476,000
Eau de Esophagor (9k ea.) x 45 = 405,000
Gluten-Free Potion Composites Cookbook (11k ea.) x 42 = 462,000
Open Grave (15k ea.) x 34 = 510,000
Neovian Genealogy (13k ea.) x 34 = 442,000
Ghost Meepit Dance Party Ultra Remix (17k ea.) = 476,000
Villager Pitchfork (12k ea.) x 22 = 264,000
Haunted Chess Set (29k ea.) x 17 = 493,000
Damp Cave Feng Shui (27k ea.) x 17 = 459,000
Ominous Stone Plushie (28k ea.) x 17 = 476,000
Nurse Skeleton Bobblehead (26k ea.) x 17 = 442,000
Potion Cabinet (36k ea.) x 13 = 468,000
Ilere Plushie (26k ea.) x 11 = 286,000
Accursed Mittens (36k ea.) x 11 = 396,000
Tale of Woe: The Untold Story - by Reginald (Autographed Copy) (37,000 ea.) x 11 = 407,000
Rusty Asylum Cell Door (49k ea.) x 9 = 441,000
Behind the Rusted Door: The True Story of the Meepit Oaks Sanitorium (44k ea.) x 8 = 352,000
Enraged Mayor Thumburt Plushie (42k ea.) x 8 = 336,000
Creeping Shadow Hammer (28k ea.) x 7 = 196,000
Mysterious Potted Flower (38k ea.) x 6 = 228,000
Spirit of Slumber Plushie (61k ea.) x 5 = 305,000
Ghost Paint Brush (120k ea.) x 4 = 480,000
Thumburts Cane (85k ea.) x 3 = 255,000
Rusty Lamppost (50k ea.) x 2 = 100,000
Observations: -So far, 34 Open Graves are 30k more profitable than 4 Ghost Paint Brushes. -In second, Haunted Chess Sets are more profitable than the PBs by 13k. -Battledome items are not worth as much as other items -the 1,000 to 2,500 point items seem to be worth a lot as well
Conclusion: Even though Open Graves and the Chess Set appear to be one of the most profitable, the deflating Ghost Paint Brush would sell easier and faster. Books and funiture would also sell faster than toys. I am still thinking about what to get, but this has helped me see the values better so I could feel that I made a good decision with my points (unlike my Maraqua plot prizes where I sold a 12mill item for 800k ).
