What a cute little system! Will be checking it out with my fav book

Thanks and enjoy!


To clarify the combat example, the vampire ("N") is defeated, so the loot is an Axe ("O") and Boots ("W")?

Close -  Axe (O) and Helm (W).   Boots are X. 


Well, if I could read a lookup table, that would be a bonus. :)
