Adventuring Gear are items that you would use to help you with your adventuring and exploring. These are often times lifesavers for the adventurer, pointing the way back to civilization when the adventurer has need, or the way to new adventures.

There are many different types of items which aid in exploration. The most commonly thought of item is indeed maps and navigational charts. Compasses also come to mind, showing the way north so that you may find the direction you need. However there are other tools which aid the explorer greatly. There’s tools for taking notes so that you can remember key important pieces of information. There’s tools of survival which can help you bandage up a broken arm. There’s tools to help you scale tall mountains, and tools which provide light in even the darkest of dungeons.

Indeed there are many tools for many jobs, all of which help with one thing… adventuring. These are tools which may help you find your way out of dark caves and monster infested mines, tools which may prevent you from falling to your death should you slip while climbing a tall mountain, and tools that at the end of the day lead you back home.
