Items And Wealth
Along the way of your adventure, you will come across some valuable things that will help you survive and improve your tank. Some things will benefit you directly, while others you may be able to sell for profit.
Your tank’s wealth is noted on the second page of its character sheet. There is a special field for Fuel and Currency, and a Miscellaneous field for everything else that you’re carrying around with you. Every item has a weight, but the Handbook generally doesn’t state any prices because those are highly dependent on the individual merchants’ demands. It’s up to your MM to decide how valuable any item is in any given situation. See Items for an example list of various items that can be acquired and found.
FIELD MANUALThere are neutral merchants and shops scattered all across the lands. Visit them to buy and sell items and equipment. They usually accept payment with currency, fuel, or in kind.
STARTING ITEMSWhen leaving the assembly line, a tank is usually received by Matchmakers and given some standard traveller’s gear before it is kicked out. The following table shows a list of starting items that your tank begins its adventure with. Higher-level starting characters may have additional items if your MM allows it.
