I want my character to wear a heavy cloak or robe, that he made himself from leather and fur. Can I just buy a full set of leather gear, and give it the same weight and cost, plus the price of a cloak added on?
It looks like I may be getting left behind, but I'd still like to finish making this character. Sorry for taking so long.

Silverthorn's equipment list:
1 Backpack, Small $60 Wgt:3 Location:
1 Blanket $20 Wgt:4 Location:
1 Boots $80 Wgt:3 Location:feet
1 Compass $50 Wgt:0 Location:
1 Group Basics $50 Wgt:20 Location:
1 Leather Armor $100 Wgt:10 Location:torso, groin
1 One-College Powerstone (Energy 4) $390 Wgt:0 Location:
1 Personal Basics $5 Wgt:1 Location:
1 Sleeping Bag $25 Wgt:7 Location:
1 Tent, 1-Man $50 Wgt:5 Location:
2 Wineskin $20 Wgt:.5 Location:

Yes buy it as leather gear plus the cloak. You can start in the adventure with everyone else, as it will take a day or two before it proceeds. This should give everyone time to add finishing touches to their characters.

Ok that's great, thanks.
I noticed blankets, tents and sleeping bags have no bonuses for survival, except the insulated sleeping bag, which doesn't appear until TL7. Does this mean I have the same chance of surviving the elements with or without camping gear? I don't have much strength, and want to stay light on my feet, so I'm thinking I may go light on gear, if I'm not going to be at a severe disadvantage, or else I'll get a horse or something.

Also, can I use my bow with a line and hook, for fishing?

Silveroak (and aelun, correct me if I'm wrong) - I believe we are in TL 3 so, compasses and sleeping bags (TL 6) haven't been invented yet.

Hmmm, ok. It doesn't mention that in the skill description. I've been lost in the Basic Set for a week now though, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's in a section I haven't read yet.

Yeah looks that way to me as well...

Do we have to specialise for survival by terrain type? The description says so, but I noticed Anuhea just has "Survival" listed on her character sheet.

All I have to do now is choose levels for my skills, maybe narrow them down a bit, and probably add some more disadvantages to offset the cost, then double check everything again. Current estimate is 3 weeks until my sheet is done lol.

Good catch. I'll specialize in mountains, since I would assume those would be more common on my trade route. (Aelun - am I right?)

So I was thinking, since Agamar isn't such a huge place, and we all seem to have done a bit of travelling around Whiterock, I'm thinking most of us would have met, or at the very least heard of each other.
My area knowledge skill, and trade route (selling meat and hides, buying weapons) extends 2 weeks west of Whiterock, in maybe a week wide band. I (as a player) don't know exactly what is out there, but I'm making a generic map to discuss it with Aelun now, just throwing some general town/village locations on it.

Have any of you guys been living/travelling in this same area? (West of Whiterock?)
I know it will be in some of your character threads, but there's a LOT of info in there which I don't have time to re read at the moment.

Are there Knights of the Order of the Dragon based in Whiterock as well as Highgate?

A sleeping bag is simply a bag you sleep in, it doesn't have to be amodern commercial sleeping bag. if you look here [quote]It is believed that Freydis Eiriksdottir, the brutal daughter of Fredrick the Red of Greenland, invented the first sleeping bag in 1000 A.D during her journey to North America[/url]
as for compasses, this site puts the invetion of the compass at 1050 BC in China, and has long been available for navigation.
