Starting with all equipment
« on: April 21, 2013, 04:25:40 PM »
How much would it, mess up or make more challenging or speed up a game, if you started a game with all the equipment in your spellbook that you can legally have on? Think it could be fun thematically...

It would change the game quite dramatically

Small creature attacks become almost irrelevant, and your effect rolls become more important.

It makes defensive strategies stronger as you know you can survive far more attacks in the early stages.

It gives an extra benefit to fire mages due to the ease of item destruction with explode, and you could then also take dissolves to end with a large equipment amount 'up' on your opponent.  If anything it reduces Steal Equipment as you will have the slot filled yourlf.
