How do you handle the looting of dead enemies?
Specifically for new players, who are used to seeing everything that was just used against them in the fight sitting there waiting to be picked up?
My players love looting bodies, going through pockets, etc
If my party kills half a dozen well armed shiny knights in fine raiment and plate armour, and afterwards think they’d like to switch their weapon to something a knight hit them with, or grab some plate armour to repair, or pick up the knights bulging coin purses, and (assuming I haven’t planned anything) I roll on the loot table and say “you find a piece of string and some leaves” my body might be found floating face down in the canal the next day.
I personally have no issue at all accepting the rules for a new system, I have faith they’re there for a good reason. But my players are not going to like a situation like that. It’s less about gaining loot, seeing as inventory is so limiting anyway, and more about suspension of disbelief. They’re going to tell me it’s just an implausible scenario.
How do you handle this for players new to torchbearer?
