By the letter of the rules, yes you can loot the goblins for their leather armour and scimitars. In my games I try to keep a small degree of realism as often as possible. This is made easier by my group being made up of larpers and re-enactors. Anyone who has actually worn armour and carried a real sword and shield knows that they are HEAVY. carrying ...

Traditionally, the term "monster" in D&D has referred to any creature encountered while adventuring, even human NPC's! Although this usage is not, to my knowledge, currently in vogue, I would rule that the term monster is still broad enough to incorporate hostile humanoid creatures such as goblins and orcs. These type of creatures don't care about ...

Yes - think of the game as a real fictional world. It's not like D&D 4e or a computer game where someone dies "but you can't touch their stuff." So you can get all those kinds of loot. The only reason for a "Combat Gear" separate line in a stat block is so the GM understands which items the NPC is likely to use in combat - it's less work than parsing ...

Leather armor can be turned into strips, although these might ...

They can, sure. But the BD&D rules are quite explicit that they typically have no value. In general, Weapon and armor used by monsters are rarely in good enough condition to sell (BD&D p 42). So they can collect them, they can even use them, but no, merchants won't buy them unless they are particularly pristine.

The Expanded Psionics Handbook "helpfully" describes the procedure for determining number and levels of Powers in a Powerstone using those tables, and then says (p. 168): […] then choose the specific power of a given level from those described in Chapter 5. You can pick a desired power or determine the power randomly. I guess on the plus side, ...

You can use this loot generator to do so. Just tick the ticky box for psionics.
