So, what would my PCs have in their haversacks? Let's see...
Corrin, a very young sell sword (1st level Fighter), whose camp was destroyed in a surprise attack in the middle of the night, runs off into the woods and catches up with a ragtag band of other Sell Swords and Sell Wands. During his flight from the camp he was only able to manage to grab a few things other than his sword.
In Corrin's haversack you find:
- A few days rations
- A fire brand (torch)
- fishing twine and hook (already in haversack)
- cook pot and travel cup
- Flint and steel (already in haversack)
- Whetstone (in hand sharpening sword when the attack started)
This is all that makes sense for Corrin to have grabbed during a hurried escape.
