What I did with my group is explain the "Appendix N mentality" of coins and treasure, in that if you look at the end of most of the Conan stories or Fafhrd/Mouser stories, etc., you see that they end up with bags of loot -- yet, if you look at the start of most of the stories they start out broke. I told my group that treasure is fleeting and when they hit the big score they should buy a couple of items they want but assume the rest of the treasure went into carousing and boozing it up. Appendix N style characters never seem to save for later what they can spend excessively today.
No complaints so far, and it gives me chances to give them some absurd treasures because they know that they will be broke when we start the next session. Sometimes I start a session by asking, "so tell the table how you spent your share of the loot."
Just an update about our irregularly scheduled DCC campaign. I'm continuing to run assorted published adventures. As mentioned earlier, started with Portal under the Stars, The Shambling Undead, and Legend of the Silver Skull. This ended nicely with one of the characters permanently having a skull face until they can seek treatment somewhere. Really bothers the locals. People keeping eyeing his jeweled eyes. So, the PC has resorted to going around with a hooded cloak, which just makes him look suspicious. Ha-ha! Then I decided to run Doom of the Savage Kings (where we are currently), which may lead nicely into The Queen of Efland's Son, before moving on to Tomb of the Savage Kings. These sessions have been intermingled with us playing other games too- mostly skirmish war games.
BTW, Goodmans is now also offering a MCC first time fan kit for $30. I went ahead and ordered it. You can't go wrong- it's a true value for the dice and rulebook alone. So, my group may consider playing alternating games of DCC and MCC once it shows up. We'll see.
