  1. This is absolutely brilliant, and the first custom playbook I’m seriously considering introducing to my players. It really is a role that’s in almost every adventure story, but almost no RPGs. The big strong heroes need their Samwise Gamgee or their Sancho Panza or their John Watson to take up the rear and occasionally save their skins.

  2. If that sounds like an interesting idea, you should certainly take a look at Funnel World.  It’s a short addition to the core rules that covers the tales of those simple folk who survived great dangers long enough to gain a level in something.

  3. I can see Common Clothing, but I’m reluctant to add any descriptors that don’t give me a mental image.  “Usual but evocative” is my goal.
