    There are non.

    Some DM's (me for example) let players write down : Adventure kit.

    I have a set list of items that are in this Kit and so we keep down bookkeeping. (just pay x gold after every adventure & your full again.)

    Ex.
    60 Ft Rope
    5 Torches
    5 Rations
    3 days water
    Regular maintenance crap (armour & weapons)
    Regular Camping crap (Bedroll, Flintstones, ...)
    a few paper & something to write
    a few flask, potions & sacks.
    ...

    Anyway, I dislike having a ten-foot pole, if for no other reason then for stretching credibility of sneaking while carrying it around.

    I laughed hard when I saw this. It may be low brow humor, but gosh darnit it's still humor.

    Not on topic, I know. Sorry, I've got nothing to add to it. I just wanted to point out the wording of Doc's sentence.

    Umm... we're not making up a list of items every adventurer should have... there's a premade 'kit' of gear called 'Standard Adventurer's Kit'. If you want to include extra gear, then you're welcome to buy it a la carte.

    Wow, a guy I used to know called it the SAK too. Don't remember what all he had in it, it's been over 10 years since he disappeared.

    My problem with the standard adventurer's kit as written in the PHB II is that it weighs a hefty amount. A STR 8 wizard with the standard kit, a spellbook, spell component pouch, quarterstaff, and crossbow is pushing a medium load, which is annoying. The rope and rations alone are 20 lbs., as heavy as a suit of studded leather armor. I personally use my own standard kit, which only weighs 13 lbs. and is a lot more friendly for the weaker STR classes. Of course, one could always buy a donkey, but who needs another ass to take care of?

    I was kidding carrying a 10ft pole doesn't make sense except from a metagaming point of view.


    Serious stuff to add to the list:
    chalk, for marking stuff, doesn't cost much
    signal whistle, for calling stuff, also cheapish
    knife or dagger, regardless of whether you're going to be fighting with it, you want to be able to cut things.
    soap, 'cause we don't need no stinkin' adventurers


    If you're low on strength, replace backpack with sack; for some reason a backpack made to distribute weight equally and make it easier to carry, is harder to carry than plain old bag.

    It must be those adamantine buckles. I hear those are rather hefty.

    By the way, sir, what the bloody froth is happening in your avatar? I've always wanted to know where it's from.

    Err.. well that lot is probably a medium load. I've been camping - it weighs a lot. I have no problem with that. I take it he will have a quiver for crossbow bolts as well? A weedy wizard shouldn't be lugging all that around - he might break a nail.

    We generally distribute the SAK amongst the party. Rogues tend to get the rope and hook, fighters the heavy stuff (like tents). Then again, I havn't played a wilderness campaign in a while. I tend to run city campaigns (where carrying all of that just doesn't happen).

    It always kinda bugged me that there was no rules for backpacks with regards to encumbrance.

    When I next run a game I may houserule that anything carried in a backpack (not 'tied to' or 'hanging off') has an effective weight 3/4 it's actual weight for encumbrance purposes (or something like that)...sensibly, a limit would have to be put on how much can fit in a backpack as well, but I haven't thought it through that much...
    I apologise if I come across daft. I'm a bit like that. I also like a good argument, so please don't take offence if I'm somewhat...forthright.

    Please be aware; when it comes to 5ed D&D, I own Core (1st printing) and SCAG only. All my opinions and rulings are based solely on those, unless otherwise stated. I reserve the right of ignorance of errata or any other source.

    I believe that d20 Modern has backpacks give a +2 circumstance bonus to strength for purposes of determining carrying capacity. Of course, that is for a modern backpack. I'd give a medieval backpack a +1 instead.

    Actually, if you do a search for 'bedroll' you'll find that it makes the pack superfluous.

    Basically, a bedroll is a waterproof tarp, some padding and a blanket. In the American Civil War, the soldiers would wrap up their gear into the bedroll and sling it across their chest/back.

    Thinks about WoTC coming out with extensive encumbrance rules by location, weight and volume. Shudders.

    But, in all seriousness, didn't the original D&D opperate based on encumbrance, so that a lightweight pole was still more difficult to carry around than a small metal block with convenient handles? And a coin or gem was 1 cn (coin), so that you didn't have the problem of charcters lugging around several banks worth of gold because DMs didn't want to deal with fiftieths of the common unit? And carrying apparati were rated by how much encumbrance they could take, not by volume, which nobody uses anyway. So a sack would accomodate less cn than a backpack, though they may be the same volume (I don't remeber if this was 100% true, but its close enough).
    Come to think of it, why did they do away with encumbrance? it seems a lot more logical than weight anyway. (sorry about off topic rant)

    Everyone should have rope unless they're really incapable of lifting anything. Once you've been on an adventure, the 10GP for some silk rope isn't going to be much, and you should be able to make room for 5lbs somewhere.
