Quick 1001 Nights Equipment

Dirt simple starting equipment for dirt poor adventurers.   So your first character died?  Or maybe you just are arriving late? or maybe you just don't give a ship about starting equipment (or this is for an NPC).

Well, everyone has a small fruit knife to start,  but also rolls a d8, a d6 and a d4 and chooses what is most important:   Weapons, Armour or Miscellaneous stuff.

The most important thing uses the d8 for its result, the second the d6 and the least important the d4.  But you may notice there are more than one result for item, separated by a slash (/)  this is what happens when you get doubles or triples.   The portion of the double (or triple) with the highest die gets shifted over one slash for a double, or two for a triple.


Joe wants Weapons, Armour and then Misc.   He rolls a d8(4) a d6 (5) and a d4 (3)

He has a bow and quiver, a brigandine jacket, and 50 feet of hemp rope as his starting equipment.

Susan wants Armour, Misc and then Weapons.  She rolls a d8(4), a d6 (3) and a d4 (3)
