Character Starting Equipment Question

Postby Hayden Youngblood on December 21st, 2017, 6:17 pm

Hello!

I had a question about starting equipment. I wanted my character to start off with some basic climbing equipment. (An enormous rope, a harness, and maybe some leather gloves.) Since this isn't one item, I figured putting this as a family heirloom would not be allowed.

So, I was wondering, can you buy something before you start the game by subtracting the money amount from your starting amount?

And, on that note, about how much would said climbing equipment cost?

Thanks so much! :)

Character Starting Equipment Question

Hi again! :D You can definitely buy things with your starting money; even when you start RPing, not everything your character owns has to be bought in thread, just as long as you're keeping your ledger up to date. You're also right about the heirloom, although you could make one of those items your heirloom if you like.

Here is the price list! Though it's quite organized it's also huge, so I suggest you make use of ctrl+f when looking for something specific just to make your life a little bit easier. There is in fact a climbing kit that's available that has most of what you're interested in and then some; however, it's a bit pricey if you're only starting out with 100 GM.

Character Starting Equipment Question

Hello again! :)

This was incredibly helpful. :)

I have one other question, for the horsemanship skill, it says that a novice/competent horseman can own 1-2 horses (10-20 competent) in a stable. Does that mean you start with horses and a stable? Or does it just mean you could own that many horses?

If not, then can a family heirloom be a horse? I think it fits since a horse would truly mean a lot for Hayden.

Thanks again!

Skills don't contribute anything to your equipment; being a novice in horsemanship simply means that if you were to own/run stables, you could feasibly manage 2 horses. (Competent being you could manage up to 20)

You could start with a horse without paying for it if you took the tent starting package for housing. Otherwise, most breeds are too expensive for an heirloom, which must be worth 50 GM or less. Here is the list of horses; judging by a brief glance at it, you could probably take a mixed breed as an heirloom, since they start at 50 GM.

I do notice, however, that your race right now is Drykas. If you're going with that and you want to start in Endrykas, then you could also simply start with your bonded Strider and Windmarks already. If you have any questions about that, I unfortunately don't know much, so you'll probably be better off contacting Meadow, the DS of Endrykas, for details on that.

I can't thank you enough. :)

I'll try contacting Meadow, which was great advice.
