73.) Magnesium Fire Starter

These are awesome little devices for modern settings. Since the magnesium can be readily used for more then just lighting campfires (flares, fireworks, as a chemical, etc) these are truely cool. Go to Comment

74) 9-volt batteries

Well, these things are far too useful to leave at home.
This + Steel Wool = Firestarted.
This + matches,electrical tape and a little copper wire, primative detonator.
This + Graphite lead from click-pencil = Temporary Carbon Arc Lamp.
Can be taken apart to obtain 6 1.5 volt (sorta) short-life batteries, allowing you to generate anything from 1.5 v to 9 in 1.5 volt increments.
Two stuck together = dangerous handwarmer.
This + two electrodes and water = hydrogen/oxygen generator (in small quantities).
etc,etc. Go to Comment

75) Steel Wool

Will ignite readily if exposed to sufficent voltage (surprising little)
Can be used to make Thermite in addition to other ingredients.
Shredded it can be dropped into electronics to short circuit them.
And of course, scrubbing pots :) Go to Comment

76) USB Stick

Loaded with useful hacking software, images, etc. Some machines can even be booted from these puppies. And of course, for downloading useful info.

78) Digital Camera

Many, many uses. Perhaps the children's versions of these cameras might be best, as they are simpler and more durable then normal version, but the image quality is fine for most purposes.

Alternately, a Cell Phone with a camera could also fit this role. Go to Comment

79) Stone Cutters Kit

Consists of a metal drill, mallet and a number of wooden spikes. To use, drill an array of holes along where you want to cut, insert wooden spikes and hammer in hard. Then add water, causing the spikes to expand and cracking the stone.

Might be useful in getting out of somewhere in a dungeon. The tools have other uses as well. Go to Comment

92.) Scissors or Trauma Shears
Can be safer to use when cutting then a simple knife or sword. Scissors have been around for a long time. (Wiki says 1500BC ancient Egypt) Go to Comment

The same articals cites the romans as having cross-bladed scissors as early as 100AD, and following the links leads us to everything2.com and the following citation:

"One of the first recorded mentionings of cross-blade scissors, however, was in the Fifth Century. The scribe Isidore of Seville described a cross-bladed shear, with a center pivot, used by barbers and tailors. These scissors did not gain widespread use in Europe until the 1600's. (One thousand years later!)"

So Roman, Dark Age and Renassiance on can all have scissors... Wonder what squelched them in the middle ages? Go to Comment

Standing Orders Table

Surprise Attack - Toss staff to attacker. Take cover, including using other persons
Basic Attack - Will take cover behind other persons/objects as available. Will fire sling stones when clear of immediate threat.
Attack of Opportunity - If at sling range, will fire, otherwise help others. Spells too precious to use without direct thought
Injured - Scream and run
Injury - Apply direct pressure and hope it wasn't the cleric who dropped.
Special - Will ALWAYS try and figure something out in the situation at hand before acting. Has too few hp, spells and weapons to ever act rashly Go to Comment

Well, I can find worse. :) In any case, this is intended to be part of one of the ongoing RPGs - it was a quick effort. Backstory is thin because not much has happened to this guy yet - a starting character can't have too much, or they are not a starting character.

Also, if you look at the other submissions for the 'Back in the day' codex, they also have game stats. They have much better backstories to, so I'll not exuse that aspect.

Perhaps we need a new section for these type of submissions, as I agree this does not fit in with the normal NPC Submission. Go to Comment
