I like the simplicity of just using coins to pay for stuff.
I find it hard to imagine medieval fantasy folk fussing over their copper, silver and gold, or whether electrum was more on the gold or silver side; a bit like us mulling over cash, notes, Visa, MasterCard, classic or platinum.

There are some oddities though.
Does a great sword or a morning star really have to cost more (and seem more valuable) than a war horse, plate mail or long bow?
Would that not make them unpopular choices, having priced themselves out of even the selective niche market?
I can also understand the rare novelty of dwarven rifles that make them the most expensive item I see, although the price still feels too steep.

The Chronicles of Arax is an awesome solo adventure game with lots of stuff that's fun and fine and awesome, and this is its supplement.

Working on a free core paid supplement system, Chronicles of Arax has lots of things going for it.

The Equipment lists are sizable, but mainly cover things that you'd use as a solo adventurer whose adventures are short and violent. It's the kind of stuff you'd find in, say, Avernum, primarily martial or adventurer stuff.

It's good, but it's really just more for the core rules. Plus, you can't use the majority of weapon with a shield. Which is probably good for balance, but it hurts me when I read that a lot of those weapons can't be used with shields. They generally can, just not efficiently, which would have been nice to be reflected.

But, when I get to nit-picking on fighting style, it's a sign that it's a decent product. Not the longest, but how much do you need?

This product greatly expand on the equipment you can use in the game, so if intend to play more than the intro quest it is a must. I really liked the easy way it puts a limit on availability on different items. You have to roll over a certain number on a D10 (depending on the item) to find it in the shop, more potent items needing a higher roll.

If you have any intention of playing more adventures as they are released you will need this product. It has numerous items that can be of use to you, not to mention the fact that it has rules on missile weapons which I can foresee making a lot of encounters that much more survivable.
