Characters start the game with as many things as they can carry (each thing must cost 40gp or less). Characters do not get to keep gold left over from this process, Armor and Weapons count towards this total.
If a Character would like to transport more stuff than they can carry, they may employ pack animals.
Pack Animals MUST be fed every day. Feed costs 1 gp a day. Pack Animals will die after 2 days without feed.
When they are purchased, Pack Animals roll a dice to see how many things they can carry (as below:)
Donkey (8 gp) = d6 items
Mule (30 gp) = d10 items
Pony (30 gp) = d6+2 items
Horse, draft (40 gp) = d12 +2 items
Horse, riding (75 gp) = d12 + 4 items
Horse, war (250 gp) = d12 + 6 items
Cart (100 gp) = 20 items (must be pulled by a donkey or better).Wagon (200 gp) = 30 items (must be pulled by a horse or better).
