A quilted linen or wool jacket. Worn under chain (+1 torso slot) or under plate (no additional inventory), an arming jacket acts as leather armor once the chain or plate is damaged.
A stout helmet with an aventail to protect the neck and throat. Can sustain two hits before becoming damaged.
+1D for travel in rain or rough roads.
Thick Leather Gloves
+1D to resist heat or injury from work or +1D equipment for Laborer. Factor for all fine motor actions like spell casting, shooting, carving, etc.
Holds three slots for pack 1 items (not in bundles: no rations, torches, candles, coins, gems, etc.)
A cask holds 4 draughts for water, ale or wine.
Lanterns use refined oil as fuel. Cost and inventory represents two flasks of refined oil. A flask of refined oil will fuel a lantern for four turns.
A pound of tallow grease (beef fat) that can be used as supplies for Alchemy, Survival and other tests requiring grease or an accelerant.
Sack of Beans
A sack of dried beans. Provides supplies for 2d6 Cook tests. Cannot be eaten without cooking. Comes in a small sack.
Wheel of Cheese
2D6 Preserved Rations or six uses of supplies for cooking.
Are the towns in the availability column a hierarchy or must you actually visit a busy crossroads specifically for that piece?
Good question! It’s a hierarchy (from most restricted availability to greatest availability):
Wizard’s Tower/Religious Bastion
When do you roll the portions for a wheel of cheese?
I would roll the first time you use it.
Reinforced helmet works twice automatically (no roll) then is broken or lost?
Does “two hits” mean two hit points from a single action, or must it be one hit point from two different actions?
