I think the use of General Stores in RP is better then having the PCs wander around to 15 different stores - I'm just not that interested in in-game shopping unless it is for something truely special, or a setup for contacting an important NPC. Maybe it's not realistic, but it helps conserve valuable game time. Go to Comment
Woodrats - In a fantasy realm of cooshee (elven dogs/cats) it is to be expected that there is some sort of elven vermin. These mercurial rats are lightning quick, and are capable of hiding in plain sight. Other than this, they have no special ability.
