This is a list of all the adventuring gear available in the game, either for sale, or as craftable items. Note that a wide variety of Miscellaneous Equipment exists as well, which encompasses the less common gear adventurers might be interested in.

Animal Glue

  • Cost: 5 sp
  • Weight: 0.5 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Tanner)
    • Check DC: 15

This simple glue is created by extensively boiling animal skin, bones, hooves, horn, and tendons until they turn into a ochre syrup that cools when it hardens. Before you use animal glue, you must heat it until it liquefies. You normally apply it with a brush and hold the pieces together for a minute, at which point it is cooled and hardened. The glue is sufficient to coat 1 square foot of surface, or (because of waste and spills) up to 40 smaller applications of approximately 2 square inches each. Pulling apart a large glued surface (at least 1 square foot) requires a DC 15 Strength check. Pulling apart a small glued surface (anything less than 1 square foot) requires a DC 10 Strength check. Animal glue slowly dissolves in water, reducing the Strength DC needed to break it by 1 per 10 minutes. It softens if heated, even with steam, reducing the Strength DC needed to break it by 1 per minute.

Armor Spikes

  • Cost: 50 gp
  • Weight: 10 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Weaponsmith)
    • Check DC: 10

Armor spikes deal 1 extra point of piercing damage when you deal damage during a grapple. The spikes count as a martial weapon. If you are not proficient with them, you take a -4 penalty on grapple checks if choose to apply this extra damage. You can also make a regular melee attack (or off-hand attack) with the spikes, and they count as a light weapon and a close weapon in this case. (You can't also make an attack with armor spikes if you have already made an attack with another off-hand weapon, and vice versa.) An enhancement bonus to a suit of armor does not improve the spikes' effectiveness, but the spikes can be enchanted as a magic weapon in their own right.

Note: Magic properties and bonuses can never stack. Getting armor spikes of defending seems like a great idea, but the defensive bonus from the armor spikes will not stack with the armor bonus of the armor. Additionally, properties that grant bonuses when wielded only count during rounds in which the armor spikes are actually being used as a weapon or in a grapple, not simply while the armor is worn.

Backpack, Common

  • Cost: 2 gp
  • Weight: 2 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Leathersmith)
    • Check DC: 15

Backpack, Superior

  • Cost: 50 gp
  • Weight: 4 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Leathersmith)

This backpack has numerous pockets for storing items that might be needed while adventuring. Hooks are included for attaching items such as canteens, pouches, or even a rolled-up blanket. It has padded bands that strap across the chest and the waist to distribute its weight more evenly. Like a common backpack, it can hold about 2 cubic feet of material in its main container. When wearing a superior backpack, treat your Strength score as +1 higher than normal when calculating your carrying capacity.

Bag, Waterproof

  • Cost: 5 sp
  • Weight: 0.5 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Leathersmith)
    • Check DC: 15

This leather sack sealed with tar or pitch keeps delicate items from being ruined by water. Items kept inside remain relatively dry, making the bag ideal for carrying maps, scrolls, spellbooks, and the like, although the bag is not impervious and can only be completely immersed for 10 rounds before enough water seeps in to ruin such items.

Bandoleer

  • Cost: 5 sp
  • Weight: 0.1 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Leathersmith)
    • Check DC: 5

This leather belt is worn over one shoulder and runs diagonally across the chest and back. It has small loops or pouches for holding eight objects the size of a flask or small dagger. You can use the "retrieve a stored item" action to take an item from a bandolier. You can wear up to two bandoliers at the same time (any more than this and they get in each other's way and restrict your movement).

Bedroll

  • Cost: 1 sp
  • Weight: 5 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Weaver)
    • Check DC: 5

This consists of two woolen sheets sewn together along the bottom and one side to create a bag for sleeping in. Some have cloth straps along the open side so the bedroll can be tied closed while you are sleeping. It can be rolled and tied into a tight coil for storage or transport. Most people use a blanket with the bedroll to stay warm or provide a ground cushion.

Bedroll, Elven Thistledown

  • Cost: 4 gp
  • Weight: 2 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Weaver)
    • Check DC: 25

An Elven Thistledown bedroll is both lighter and more comfortable than a standard bedroll. The thistledown filling of the sheets insulates against cold but also breathes to remain comfortable in warmer climates. The filled sheets also provide some cushioning against the ground, making for a more restful sleep. Finally, the scent of the thistledown is a mild soporific, making it easier to fall asleep.

Belt, Sturdy

  • Cost: 15 sp
  • Weight: 0.1 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Leathersmith)
    • Check DC: 5

This thick leather belt is useful for holding up trousers as well as hanging pouches or canteens off of hooks attached to it. It has a simple iron belt buckle, and the leather is unadorned, though adequately reinforced to prevent wear.

Blanket

  • Cost: 5 sp
  • Weight: 3 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Weaver)
    • Check DC: 5

  • Cost: 50 gp
  • Weight: 1 lb
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Bookbinder), Knowledge (Arcana)
    • Check DC: 25, 20

The need to be able to record and travel with dozens or even hundreds of spells often forces some wizards to seek lighter spellbooks. Compact spellbooks hold only 70 pages of spells, but they weigh significantly less than an ordinary spellbook.

Book, Spellbook (Traveling)

  • Cost: 10 gp
  • Weight: 1 lb
  • Craftable? Yes

    • Check DC: 15

These thick leather boots have been softened to flex and conform to the wearer, and come up to the mid-calf. The soles are hard leather with metal studs for treads. Small eyelets have been added to allow heat and water to escape, though this also means they are not waterproof.

Candle

  • Cost: 1 cp
  • Weight: 0.1 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Farmer)
    • Check DC: 5

A candle dimly illuminates a small area, increasing the light level in a 5-foot radius by one step (darkness becomes dim light and dim light becomes normal light). A candle cannot increase the light level above normal light. A candle burns for 1 hour.

Candle Lamp

  • Cost: 5 gp
  • Weight: 1 lb
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Glass Smith)
    • Check DC: 10

A candle lamp is a small lantern-like device with glass panels and a slot to hold a candle. It protects the candle from drafts and catches wax drippings. It provides the same light as a candle, but can be shuttered such that it only illuminates 1 to 3 adjacent squares. You can use a candle lamp to keep your hands warm.

Candlestick

  • Cost: 1 cp
  • Weight: 0.5 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Blacksmith)
    • Check DC: 5

This saucer-like object has a flat bottom, a handle, and a spike on top. You can affix a candle onto the spike (up to 3 inches in diameter) and hold the candlestick by the handle. The flat bottom means you're able to set it down and not worry about the candle falling over and extinguishing itself. A typical candlestick is crafted from baked clay or a cheap metal such as copper, but elaborate and expensive ones exist.

Canteen

  • Cost: 2 gp
  • Weight: 1 lb
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Carpenter)
    • Check DC: 15

This hollow container is made of wood, a gourd, or metal, and carries liquid like a waterskin, but is more resistant to punctures and cuts.

  • Weight: 0.5 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Leathersmith)
    • Check DC: 15

You must destroy the scroll case to damage its contents (Sunder DC of 12, requiring 1 success). A scroll case is watertight, protecting its contents from the elements.

Chalk (1 piece)

  • Cost: 1 cp
  • Weight: 0.1 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Miner)
    • Check DC: 5

  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Miner)
    • Check DC: 5

Cloak, Fancy (Formal)

  • Cost: 80 gp
  • Weight: 3 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Tailor)
    • Check DC: 30

A fancy formal cloak made of silks or other fine cloths is not intended to protect or keep the wearer warm, but rather to make the wearer look good. Formal fancy cloaks are usually embroidered with metallic threads, including ambergold or bloodsilver, and can also use ribs or rings in their construction to make them flow in unexpected ways. These cloaks are not designed for heavy wear, and many noblemen wear them only a few times before discarding them. As a result, it is not uncommon for them to wear out quickly, as the tailors creating them don't bother reinforcing areas of high wear.

Cloak, Fur-Trimmed

  • Cost: 25 gp
  • Weight: 4 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Tailor)
    • Check DC: 25

Both the saving throw bonus and damage reduction are cumulative with other cold weather clothing, though you cannot wear two of the same cold-weather items (e.g. two sets of clothes).

Cloak, Patchwork

  • Cost: 1 gp
  • Weight: 2 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Tailor)
    • Check DC: 10

These cloaks are popular among traveling bards, and each patchwork cloak is unique.

When a bard retires or dies, he often bequeaths his cloak to a young entertainer he mentored or admired.

Cloak, Reversible

  • Cost: 50 gp
  • Weight: 4 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Tailor)
    • Check DC: 15

    • Check DC: 15

This coat is designed to be fashionable and presentable when in the company of society's upper class. While it is not as flamboyant as many of the clothes commissioned by the noble elite, it is attractive clothing that has the added benefit of being well-constructed and more comfortable than the noble clothing it is meant to emulate. Unlike fancy clothing, a sturdy formal coat can be expected to last for years as long as some reasonable amount of care is taken to protect it from spills and tears.

Note that worshipers of evil gods also use holy symbols, though the good-aligned folk insist on calling them "unholy" symbols. They're still holy to the god and its followers, even when they're "evil" (assuming you're willing to buy into such small-minded societal labeling).

Holy Water (Flask)

  • Cost: 25 gp
  • Weight: 1 lb
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Blacksmith), Knowledge (Religion)
    • Check DC: 10, 20

Treat this attack as a ranged Touch Attack with a range increment of 10 feet. A flask breaks if thrown against the body of a corporeal creature, but to use it against an incorporeal creature, you must open the flask and pour the Holy Water out onto the target. Thus, you can douse an incorporeal creature with Holy Water only if you are adjacent to it. Doing so is a ranged Touch Attack that does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

A direct hit by a Holy Water (Flask) deals 2d4 points of positive energy damage to an Undead creatures or evil Outsider. Each such creature within 5 feet of the point where the flask hits takes 1 point of damage from the splash.

Kit, Adventurer's

  • Cost: 12 gp
  • Weight: 44 lbs
  • Craftable? No
    • Skill: -
    • Check DC: -

Some characters may wish to skip the step of searching through a 700+ item list of potential gear, and are eager to begin their career of monster home invasion. The Adventurer's Kit is a basic set of equipment adequate for camping in the wilderness or in a dungeon. Every item in the kit is purchasable separately, but is collected as a kit for convenience. It contains:

Item Weight (lbs) Cost (GP)
Backpack 2 2
Bedroll 5 0.1
3 Belt Pouches 1.5 3
2 Sacks 1 0.2
Flint and Steel 0.1 1
Iron Pot 4 0.8
Mess Kit 1 0.2
A 50-Foot Hemp Rope 10 1
Soap 0.5 0.1
10 Torches 10 0.1
5 days' of Trail Rations 5 2.5
Waterskin 4 1
Totals 44.1 12

Note that some characters may feel a 44-pound backpack is prohibitively heavy. Such characters should consider some of the substitutions listed below to reduce weight at the cost of added cost. Some of the substitutions below assume that lay magic items are available to starting characters. Consult your GM to ensure that these items are available in your campaign before purchasing them. Note that none of the items listed below are part of an Adventurer's Kit. They must be purchased separately. However, most merchants will allow these substitutions to be done without haggling over the 'restocking fees' of removing items from a standard Adventurer's Kit to substitute in others.

Item Weight (lbs) Cost (GP) Replaces
bedroll, elven thistledown 2 4 bedroll (saves 3 lbs)
Portable Fire (150° F) 1 30 -
Pot, Folding|Folding Pot 2 10 iron pot (saves 2 lbs)

5 Rations, Elven Trail 0.5 10 trail rations (save 4.5 lbs)
Water Stone 0.1 15 waterskin (saves 3.9 lbs)

Common clothing is of poor quality, usually made of burlap or scraps of fabric scavenged from other sources. It frequently has poorly made seams, and signs of wear. It is unsightly, and characters wearing common clothing will stand out in affluent areas as being poor, and possibly be told to leave the area by the local watch. However, in poor areas, characters in common clothing will fit right in. An outfit of common clothes consists of:

Item Weight (lbs) Cost (GP)
Clothes, Common 5 sp 1 lb
Shoes, Common 8 sp 1 lb

Common clothing is not durable enough to survive adventuring for very long. Characters who live active lifestyles should expect gaping holes, ripped seams or even lost sleeves after a week or two of rough living. Furthermore, common clothing provides little protection against the elements, heat or cold, causing the DC for saving throws against environmental effects to be 1 higher than the normal.

Many tailors have realized that noblemen and wealthy merchants rarely wear the same outfit more than once or twice, and as a result, construct the outfits with more delicate fabrics, or intricate, if fragile, stitching. While the tailors are by no means skimping on the quality of the clothes, they are focusing their efforts on improving the clothes' appearance, instead of spending time reinforcing seams, padding areas of high wear, or allowing for broader ranges of motion. If the wearer looks great, they'll come purchase more clothing. If the embroidery frays, stitching comes loose, or seams pull apart after wearing it a few times, well, the clientele they seek would never know, since they'll have long since thrown it away in favor of something new.

Shield Spikes

  • Cost: 45 gp
  • Weight: 8 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Weaponsmith)
    • Check DC: 10

Shield spikes deal 1 extra point of piercing damage when you deal damage with a shield bash attack. As with a shield used for bashing, the spikes count as a martial weapon which can be used to make close attacks (such as when swallowed). Heavy shields, war shields and tower shields count as 1-handed weapons, while light shields and bucklers count as light weapons, when used to bash. If you are not proficient with them, you take a -4 penalty on attack rolls if choose to apply this extra damage. An enhancement bonus to a shield does not improve the spikes' effectiveness, but the spikes can be enchanted as a magic weapon in their own right.

Note: Magic properties and bonuses can never stack. Getting shield spikes of defending seems like a great idea, but the defensive bonus from the shield spikes will not stack with the armor bonus of the armor. Additionally, properties that grant bonuses when wielded only count during rounds in which the shield spikes are actually being used to attack, not simply while the shield is worn.

  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Trapsmith)
    • Check DC: 15

This is a shovel with a locking hinge on the shaft, allowing the shovel's blade to be folded flush with the shovel's shaft for easier portability.

Tool, Superior

  • Cost: +160 gp
  • Weight: +0 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Blacksmith)
    • Check DC: +15

This tool is perfect for its intended job. It grants a +1 competence bonus on a related skill check (if any). The bonuses provided by multiple superior or peerless items do not stack.

Several common items already count as superior tools for particular skills. These are the climber's kit, disguise kit, healer's kit, superior musical instrument, and superior thieves' tools. Therefore, there is no superior climber's kit, superior healer's kit, and so on — those items are already the best available for general checks with the relevant skill.

Some skills have no appropriate tool or superior tool — no non-magical item exists that grants a bonus for all uses of that skill. For example, just because a certain perfume is favored by local nobles (granting a +1 circumstance bonus on Diplomacy checks to influence them) doesn't mean that perfume has the same effect on a member of the thieves' guild, a foreign berserker, or a medusa. Likewise, just because a fake beard woven by dwarves out of the beards of famous dwarves may grant a +1 circumstance bonus on Use Magic Device checks to emulate the dwarven race doesn't mean the beard has any effect on using that skill to activate elven items or paladin items, or to decipher a written spell.

Individual GMs may want to allow superior tools for other skills at the listed cost. The competence bonus for such a tool should never be more than +1. The tool should either have a limited number of uses (such as the disguise and healer's kits) or only apply to certain aspects of the skill (such as the balancing pole's bonus on Acrobatics checks to traverse a narrow surface or the magnifying glass's bonus on Bargain checks for detailed items).

Tools, Thieves'

  • Weight: 1 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes

  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Blacksmith)
    • Check DC: 45

Torch

  • Cost: 1 cp
  • Weight: 1 lb
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Survival
    • Check DC: 5

A torch burns for 1 hour, shedding normal light in a 20-foot radius and increasing the light level by one step for an additional 20 feet beyond that area (darkness becomes dim light and dim light becomes normal light). A torch does not increase the light level in normal light or bright light. If a torch is used in combat, treat it as a one-handed improvised weapon that deals bludgeoning damage equal to that of a gauntlet of its size, plus 1 point of fire damage.

Trap, Hunter's

  • Cost: 2 gp
  • Weight: 10 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Trapper)
    • Check DC: 15

Although intended for trapping large animals, bear traps work as well for trapping humanoids or monsters. The hinged jaws of the trap are attached to a chain, which in turn is secured to a spike driven into the ground to ensure that the victim cannot simply crawl away. Prying open the jaws or pulling the spike from the ground requires a DC 20 Strength check. Creatures with greater than animal intelligence can take twenty on this check as a full-round action, or use the escape artist skill versus a DC of 10 to escape them as a move action. (Note that rangers add their ranger level to the escape artist DC when using the Trapper class feature.)

Hunter's Traps serve as trap foci for Rangers with the Trapper class feature.

Vest, Sturdy

  • Cost: 5 gp
  • Weight: 1 lb
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Tailor)
    • Check DC: 5

Much like hats, vests appear in almost all cultures. Though the basic design remains the same, they vary wildly in cut, color, and function. The difference between court vests and dancing vests is quite striking.

Generally speaking, a vest is a sleeveless waistcoat, worn over a shirt (if any) but under a coat (if any) and buttoned up the front. A vest will sometimes have small pockets in the front panels on each side of the chest.

Wax, Sealing

  • Cost: 1 gp
  • Weight: 1 lb
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Farmer)
    • Check DC: 5

This is wax used for sealing letters, scrolls, tubes and bottles. The wax must be heated to melting and then dripped onto the surface to be sealed. If sealing a paper product, like a letter or scroll, the wax can be imprinted with an insignia ring or stamp, if desired. If sealing a bottle, scroll case or other container, the wax seal makes the sealed area watertight (though it can't make the whole object watertight without using a LOT of wax).

Once cooled, the wax becomes hard and somewhat brittle. Anyone who wishes can break off the wax or split the seal with only a little effort. Once the seal is broken, the area must be cleaned of the old wax before it can be resealed with new wax.

Whistle, Signal

  • Cost: 8 sp
  • Weight: 0.1 lbs
  • Craftable? Yes
    • Skill: Profession (Trapper)
    • Check DC: 10

With a DC 5 Perform (wind instruments) check, you can use a whistle to signal the same sorts of situations as signal horns. A whistle's piercing report can be clearly heard (Perception DC 0) up to a quarter-mile away. For each quarter-mile beyond, Perception checks to hear a whistle take a -2 penalty.
