I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

By actually tracking the items themselves, that problem goes away really. The assumption is someone checking out a depletable item will deplete it somewhat, and since we're focusing on assembling a helpful gear kit and not the abstract notion of WBL it doesn't matter.

comment How to deal with closed-minded rule lawyering players
This is a duplicate of the second question Korvin linked isn't it? Is there something 5e specific about this I'm missing?

comment Can a centaur use a saddle pack?
Many types of saddlebags do not indeed use a saddle, as the OP's picture illustrates.

comment Campaigns are unsatisfying when made-up or slow when pre-written. How do we fix that?
The existing answers are having to stab out in 100 different directions to try and guess what's really going on at your table, please try to describe the exact issues more.

We still need to know "slow why..."

This is a brainstorm of ideas but it's on the edge of not really answering the question posed.

A valid approach.

comment How do I create a D&D character correctly as a total newbie?
I have edited this question to turn it into a "teach me how to fish" question. Please don't answer all the point specific questions, focus answers on how a new player can get up and playing on 5e when there's an intimidating amount of rules details. As always, answer from experience not opinion.

revised How do I create a D&D character correctly as a total newbie?
Revamped to make it a "teach me to fish" question instead of "give me the fish"

Oh yeah but that's the problem with occasional players - they're by definition unreliable and a) you're not always sure if they're showing up or not and b) they tend not to do homework.

Yeah it's all about what's the least bookkeeping. The segmentation of the historical loot (just kept on a spreadsheet) into kits helps; it's also very simulationist for those of us that prefer that playstyle. I'd worry about the time it'll take someone to rebuild using generic WBL every time. "Oh wait I'm rooting through the MIC for another 3 hours!!!"'
