"Ready to go, Kirpich.  Me axe is sharp, and ve should have much success."

As he waits for the rest of the group to be ready, Balir will sharpen his axe with his whetstone.

I am unclear as to your terms, everything is in the groups pot until we distribute it evenly at the end. If we must use something found, it still belongs to the group. If using it causes it to lose value or disappear, then a majority will decide if we use it.

"I can get you a rough local map for $50, I might be imprecise about that castle though.  I can heartily recommend some redundancy in terms of gear; two mules minimum, maybe even a small donkey or hand cart. And bring some food, unless you want another angry plant to fight with."






A two-wheeled handcart with spoked and iron-banded wheels. Holds 500 lbs. Can be pulled by hand or yoked to someone. Divide effective weight of load by 10. $100, 60 lbs.

A small mule can pull the hand cart easily and is cheaper than two animals of any sort.

"Last time we went out, the mule got crushed by an earth giant, and we lost our food and many supplies. I am bringing  extra clotnes, and some spare gear, along with group basics and two weeks food."

"Giants?  I vill be happy to meet one.  Let me collect a few more rations and come back."

OOC Balir will go collect a week of normal rations and then return.  Backpack should have enough room for them.

"I have plenty of cash for mules and carts, but we need someone with animal handling or teamster skill to control them, especially if combat starts. Given it costs $5365 which I can cover out of my own pocket, and these are pretty much exclusively group items, should I get paid back at the end before loot is distributed? After all, I can provide my own food and water. It should be noted there are no fodder for the mules."

Very generous of you but unnecessarily costly my friend. We can buy the cart for $100 and a small mule to pull it for $1,000, it should easily handle the water, although one barrel plus our individual  Water skins should be plenty. The rest can easily be carried along with some oats... fodder is not needed as the animal can graze the plentiful grass.  We should buy the mule with shoes and a halter, since an unused mule is likely untrained.

And I can lead the mule and control it I think... shouldn't be too difficult.
