This would speed up finishing on things significantly - There are parts that are essentially complete (arms and armor), and parts that need significant love (the vehicles and animals portions in particular). It would not be difficult to tag the GM section to each.SmootRK wrote:Joe the Rat,
This is a large document. I think it is awesome, but I had a thought regarding getting it down in size. Perhaps this document only covers equipment, that is, Not Armor & Shields and Not Weapons. Instead, each of those topics can have their own Supplement accordingly (including the revisions you have made).
I might even suggest an Animal (mounts, guard-critter, pet, livestock) Supplement where all the extras for barding and such goes. Additional sections may be applicable as well.
In order to keep things together, I suggest a common naming theme:
Equipment Emporium: Weaponry
Equipment Emporium: Armor and Shields
Equipment Emporium: Gear and Services
etc. if you decide on breaking it up more.
I suppose one question is how narrow would we want to make each? I'd prefer a smaller series of ampersand titles to keep the spine-count down
Equipment Emporium: Arms & Armor (may include siege weapons)
Equipment Emporium: Gear & Outfitting (equipment, clothes, baggage, more quick-grab kits)
Equipment Emporium: Goods & Services (possibly consolidate hirelings and retainers here as well)
Equipment Emporium: Animals & Transportation (a bestiary of new or presented animals could be included)
Equipment Emporium: Magical Curiosities (all the magic item stuff we left out because it was getting too big)
(Obviously there are other ways to break this apart; Animals could easily be its own section - its just that a significant portion of transportation (anything land-based) involves animals.)
