I salute his commitment and joie de vivre. Also his bravery; Mrs. F has a strict policy of feeding all bards we encounter to the nearest kobold colony. If they insist on declaiming or singing, she makes them eat their lute first.

I love the idea behind this, but I really hope this guy knows what he’s doing out there. It’s way easier to die/get seriously injured in the wilderness than some people realize.

Ah, it’s a kitchen sink. For a second I saw it as a block of ice, which I also liked very much!

That wasn’t weird, that was a random encounter.

He could have taken along friends to carry up to 500lbs of additional gear, and call them “Bag of Holding”.

Plus iron spikes, a lump of chalk, a silver mirror and a sprig of wolves bane? Maybe this is a 5th edition loadout rather than a 3rd edition one?

Man, I sort of backpacked in Europe for a month… I mean, I had a big back pack, but it mostly stayed at the hotel/hostel. But holy shit, I quickly found what you could wear in the bedroom and walk around, and what you could carry for 30 min in a city were two different things.

I hope the staff at the Italian hotel found use for those Levis 550s and other stuff where I decided to abandon to lighten the load.

Well… It might have been his first encounter of any kind for 18 months.

That’s bound to feel a bit weird.

Indeed.

“OK, let me roll this dice to see how many hit points I get when this bear attacks me.”

The 10’ pole fell out of popularity over the last couple of editions.

Oh, for sure 5e, he’s got the basic Explorer’s Pack

Personally, I prefer the Burglar’s or Dungeoneer’s pack
