Whenever my players make a new character, I draw (players + 1) of these and let them choose one.
That's your starting equipment and the job you had before you took up this adventuring gig. Items in bold are oversized, items in italics don't count for encumbrance. Where it says "Animals", you get that many cards from the dog deck in the post below. After level 1, you can recruit these guys as hirelings.
Obviously I need to make more of these. If anyone wants to send in the equipment a character of theirs has started with, that would be awesome. I can format it out like a card and update this post with the new ones.
