Generalized Kits
When designing a character, a player isn't usually expected to know every little thing he carries with him, but at the same time Darkrealm is a game, and eliminating differing assumptions between Director and player is an important way to keep play streamlined. To this end, Generalized Kits attempt to give a rough overview of what general gear or assorted specialist equipment for practising certain skills, a given character might carry with them, small and insubstantial items that would otherwise leave a character sheet choked with seldom-used items. These listings try to be general, as no two regions are likely to produce gear with exactly the same materials, or for the same purposes. Anything appearing on a character sheet with the suffix 'Kit' represents a collection of minor items for a specific purpose. As well as the basic kit, each has a Good and Fine quality variant listed for those whose gear is just a little bit better. Masterful quality items, no matter how mundane, deserve separate mention. Variant items should be listed separately.

Traveller's Kit

One of the most simple of requirements that the majority characters find they need is gear for basic living travelling from place to place. A traveller's kit represents those items that allow a character to eat, sleep, and travel through non-civilized areas. Usually this comprises a crude blanket, pewter or wooden tankard and spoon, and a knife suitable for eating and small whet stone for the knife. Flint for making fire, or flint and tinder in dryer areas, are essentials, and a sizeable flask or wineskin for ale or wine (water being largely too dirty for drinking in medieval times) is also an essential. Sometimes a cooking pot is included, along with an empty sack or two, sometimes not. All of this is kept in a sturdy sling-bag or backpack of canvas or hide, which is also large enough to accommodate a couple of weeks of trail provisions.

A Good Quality variant might upgrade the blanket to a bedroll, and also include bowl, plate, and fork. There is likely to be a small, simple tent, a heavier blanket or fur in cold regions, and the backpack or bag will be weatherproof enough that even in heavy rain the contents should remain relatively dry.

A Fine Quality variant would just see improvement in the materials of the Good Quality version, with the pack or bag in particular being well enough made that it can be trusted to keep fragile cargo such as clay pots or glass jars safe through the rigours of daily travel, and the tent being entirely enclosed, both for privacy and to keep insects and other small pests away from bags and gear during the night.
