The improved gear and gadget system that has been in development for some time managed to get worked into the WoA book. Playtesters have loved its flexibility and versatility and I’m sure you will as well. It eliminates a more static system I had in the initial submission. When weighing the efforts of preparing it for inclusion versus rolling it into the campaign setting, I felt that gamers deserved the improved version. The only objection I held was whether or not it could be distilled down to its essence and still fit within the proper parameters. Now that the core system is in place, expanding out gear options in supplemental material shall be just a matter of course.
