Equipment

Note: Just a chain shirt costs 50 gp, the average amount of gold a 1st level character has. I’m going to assume that as a 3rd-level character, FARGRIM has more stuff than a 1st level character would have.

  1. Chain Shirt (AC + 5 + Dex)
  2. Shield (AC +2)
  3. Warhammer (1d8/1d10 bludgeoning)
  4. Hand Axe (1d6 slashing)
  5. Holy Symbol
  6. Pouch with 15 gp
  7. Backpack
    • Common Clothes
    • Vestments
    • Blanket
    • Candle
    • Tinderbox
    • Waterskin
    • Rations (1 day)

  1. In this document I will use the term Ancestry rather than the older term “race”, just because. ↩︎ ↩︎ ↩︎
