Zarn has notified me by PM that he does not wish to be item manager and is turning the job over to me as second place in the item elections. I have decided to accept this position. My manager voice will be pink. There are no official item rules defined in our ruleset, therefore all item rules are turned over to me. Here are some item rules: Certain items are assumed to be automatically equipped with units. These are: Warrior: 1 stone axe Spearman: 1 spear Archer: 1 bow and arrows Swordsman: 1 short sword Legionary: 1 short sword, 1 iron shield Charioteer: 1 spear, 1 chariot, 1 horse Chariot Archer: 1 bow and arrows, 1 chariot, 1 horse Horseman: 1 spear, 1 horse Horse Archer: 1 bow and arrows, 1 horse Other items may be purchased for the units. These will be paid in shields until currency. Costs for the items are paid per unit. Here are these items: Code: Item Cost Bronze Helmet 1/8 shield Iron Helmet 1/4 shield Bronze Shield 1/8 shield Iron Shield 1/4 shield Leather Armor 1/8 shield Bronze Armor 1/4 shield Iron Armor 1/2 shield Javelin 1/4 shield Sling 1/4 shield Bow and Arrows 1/4 shield Dagger 1/8 shield Horse 1/4 shield, 1/2 food Chariot 1/2 shield Stone Axe 1/8 shield Iron Axe 1/4 shield Spear 1/4 shield Short Sword 1/4 shield Long Sword 1/2 shield Shoes or Boots 1/8 shield Personal items may also be owned by each individual character. The items may be free or the character may be required to pay a price in shields for them. All item ownership must be reported to the item manager in order to be valid. Here are a few more item rules: -No unit may be equipped with more than one of the same category of item (for example, a unit cannot be equipped with both bronze armor and iron armor) -All items, personal or military, must be reported in this thread. All posts in the previous item thread will not be considered. -Any person may request to have an item added to the list, which may be done so at any time. -The item manager reserves the right to add item rules and may choose not to allow an item because of lack of technology. -A unit must be equipped with horses to be equipped with chariots. Additionally, I will be gone from June 17-27 and will be looking for a deputy. The Deputy Item Manager will have all powers of the Item Manager for the period of time that I am absent.
