D&D v3.5 – Starting Equipment
June 21, 2012Posted by on
If you ever need to quickly equip a character, here is what I use in my D&D Lite house rules.
For first level characters, you can use the starting package listed below
Your character has one outfit of normal clothes. Your can ignore the weight of your clothing when calculating the weight you are carrying. This will typically include sturdy boots, leather breeches or a skirt, a belt, a shirt (perhaps with a vest or jacket), gloves, and a cloak. The clothes have plenty of pockets (especially the cloak). The outfit can also include any extra items you might need, such as a scarf or a wide-brimmed hat.
Your character has this equipment: backpack, waterskin, one day’s trail rations, bedroll, sack, flint and steel, and three torches. Add to this the equipment and money listed below for your character’s class.
