total amount you can spend on starting equipment is 20% of your starting wealth if I am not mistaken, thats only $1000.

Ok got rid of the Compass, Binoculars, Sharps rifle and ammo and saddle bags

Thus got my "Adventuring gear" down to $981.50

I consider the following:

large Mule $2000
1 man tent $50
Winter Clothes $180
Horse Shoes $50
Personal BAsics $5
Cost of Living $600

Total: 2885

Seems a shame to leave his total point value in the negative numbers (as per the breakdown of "big guard dog" from the book) when I have 37ish points to play around with, so I'll have to boost him up some. Mostly skills stuff.

Am I permissed to raise his IQ by 1?
you may raise the IQ by one (grrr minimum word counts)

on the subject what goes in which catagory for starting wealth purpouses.

At average wealth you get $1000 for adventuring gear and $4000 for everything else.
For this campaign that everything else could include:-
A wagon
a team to pull it
you entire wardrobe
standard equipment for your job (hint to the player presenting a doc char so you DONT have to buy it individually)
some articles of furnature (within reason it must fit in wagon etc)
saddle bags and all other tack for a mount.
your boots
a hat
a coat (so long as it does not provide DR)
a shovel
a hatchet
a tent
sleeping roll
personal or group basics
anything else you can convince me off.
You do not need ot worry about price as most of this will not be new and maynot be top notch stuff anyway.

For some simple guidlines as to what you have to buy with your 20% :-
anything that goes bang (ie guns)
any hand weapon that is not a tool of your trade
amunition
anything that provides DR except your boots
anything you fail to convince me to allow as part of the 80% lol
gun belts and holsters

Ok guys My shift pattern ends on friday morning (when i get to go home) i will go over the characters already submitted over the weekend (and give epic a chance to finish his lol) and hope to have an IC thread up by monday.

My boy's a work in progress. I don't think he'll be up tonight (personal stuff going on) but he'll likely be done tomorrow.

I have GCA, when my character is finalized with equipment, I'll send it your way. Just as a heads-up, I have a trip for work from Sept. 19-28. During this time my access to internet (and therefore posting rate) will be unpredictable. Hope that won't be a problem.
