No, you can't have spiked plate. You get 100 GP to equip with, and it would cost more than that.

Plate: 50
Greatsword: 30
Short Sword: 10

This only leaves you 10 GP, I've tentatively stuck in a couple of javelins at 5GP apiece, this would give you something to throw if need be. If you have other preferences, let us know.

That sounds great. Will there be easy ways to earn gold and buy stuff during the quest?

I'm also looking for a horse. I think that it won't make a difference until level 5, or something.

Yeah, I'm a few GP short of a longbow, so I had to settle for a piddly little sling. :p
Aren't we supposed to be escorting a caravan or something? Maybe I can convince the leader that he'll be safer if his security team is better equipped...

Since you're not fighting for cash, you may want to loot carefully ...

I'm sure you'll find what you need. If you live long enough.devilish

A new tank-fighter quote for the ages!

Hey, that's what bad guys are for - beat them up, then take their gear!

March of the Phantom Brigade is a D&D Encounters miniseries, just as Keep on the Borderlands was.
It runs 13 episodes, and covers levels 1-3 (so no need to worry about that horse, Eugene)... and neither of these was intended for a long-term campaign. I've been forced to make some adaptations when this (finally) dawned on me a couple of months ago.

At some point, we might want to consider where we go from here - I expect I'd tire of rebooting after a few itterations. A longer-term campaign? The folks at WOTC make campaign materials that take up where the Encounters products leave off (no fools, eh?). Maybe we could break off into long-term campaign groups, and use Encounters as it was intended - for breaking in newbies. We should talk about this sometime.

I agree. It would pretty demoralizing, if we had to reboot after another campaign.

I agree also. There has been some talk about running a "proper" campaign, and as we have a group of players who can come pretty regularly now it should be feasible. It would depend on whether they were comfortable with playing the same character for up to a year.

Because rebooting is what happens to one player anyway when their character says:
"Hey, dragons aren't that tough!"

We really should start a 'propper' D+D campaign. I might be willing to DM as long as I get a chance to kill off Bob and Dave's characters... oops, I've said too much!

This I would like to see. Totally worth it.
Wait -- what?

I'm willing to commit to a year, as long as work doesn't take me out of town.

It would be interesting to see what kinds of team combinations we could have. Perhaps we could all be the same class and race of fighters, like a platoon of soldiers, with 1 person being a leader. The leader could be a few levels up. Perhaps we could all be thieves, or something. I'm not saying that it has to be that way, but the idea is to try something that we don't normally get to do, during normal D&D campaigns.

After reading "The Player's Handbook: Core Rulebook I", I really feel that we are not using our options to the best of our abilities. Once we start planning and strategizing more, then I think that we'll get more out of it.

DMs take note:
Eugene has taken his gloves off and stepped up.

Extra monsters who know his name are now required.
