2024 Character Creation Challenge Day 4

31 DAY CHARACTER CREATION CHALLENGE

You can read more about the challenge here and here.

Dedicated to Niko whom once lamented “man you have SW in the scene for like 10 or more years and you cannot get a supplement with pregens.”

Before I start making equipment packs for each class, I ought to classify different equipment items provided in the Swords & Wizardry Complete Revised. For that I used Necropraxis's classification of OD&D equipment as the springboard. I settled for 11 categories: one-handed melee weapons, two-handed melee weapons, missile weapons, animals & vehicles, armor, exploration gear, container, light, counter, rations & travel, and misc.

Here are items in each category.
