Mundane Equipment

Mundane equipment represents the items that the persona needs to survive in the wilds. Mundane equipment consists of low-tech non-artifact tools. These items have a distinctly medieval nature to their construction. These lists are a convenience, and the milieu of the referee rules mundane equipment. The referee reserves the right to change wates and costs without notice.

Cost vs Value

All the costs listed are in electrum pieces (eps). However, market prices may increase the value of a piece of kit. For example, a village in a small ruin may only have one set of plastix to sell. The scarcity and importance of an item could impact its cost. Relative to an artifact, equivalent mundane equipment is valueless.

Mundane Equipment

Mundane items have a low-tech, underdeveloped, medieval nature. Mundane equipment construction consists of animal parts, poorly smelted metals, shoddy plastics and untreated woods.

Better Equipment

Better mundane equipment is composed of better materials than mundane equipment. Depending on the campaign’s milieu, the composition of better equipment could include alloys, polymers, and other synthetics. Better equipment functions no better, but it is lighter and more expensive.

Better Equipment
  • cost times 3

  • wate times 1/2

  • No change in function

For example, a suit of chain mail has a wate of 5.9 kgs, and a cost of 80 eps. Better chain mail would cost 240 eps and have a wate of 3.0 kgs. The Defence Rating bonus remains the same at +125.

Better mundane equipment is not to be confused with artifacts generated in the toy system. Better mundane equipment is still mundane equipment and is valueless besides artifacts and toys.

Bespoke Equipment

Bespoke mundane equipment is composed of either mundane or better materials and has a specialized design. Bespoke equipment could include armour for an alien, a fancy-looking sword, or other specialization. Bespoke equipment functions no Bespoke, but it is lighter and more expensive.

Bespoke Equipment
  • Cost times 6

  • Wate unchanged

  • Function unchanged

For example, a suit of chain mail has a wate of 5.9 kgs, and a cost of 80 eps. Bespoke chain mail would cost 480 eps and have a wate of 5.9 kgs and an Defence Rating bonus of +125. A bespoke better suit of the chain mail would cost 1440 eps, have a wate of 3.0 and an AR bonus of +125. Bespoke mundane equipment is not to be confused with artifacts generated in the toy system. Bespoke mundane equipment is still mundane equipment and is valueless besides artifacts and toys.

Equipment Tables

All the items on the equipment tables are of the mundane variety. Each item has a wate in kilograms and a cost in eps. Where possible, the list includes an alternative for the item. For example, a wrench could replace a hammer.

Essential Equipment

The essential equipment consists of items critical to expedition survival.

Weapons

The weapons included here are non-powered thrusting, striking and projectile weapons. Powered weapons like guns are part of the artifact system. The referee must determine the cost, wate and particulars of artifact weapon equipment in advance. Crossbows are the only Shoot weapon that a persona can purchase in this chapter.

Some weapons have alternates listed. Alternate weapon types only last one battle and does not offer the same bonuses as the actual item. For example, using a coat rack as a small lance will work once. The player can only add her persona’s Raw Bonus to the attack roll. If she wins the attack roll the coat rack will inflict 4d4 hit points in damage but be destroyed in the process.
