I will probably skip these, no player i encountered liked to have more than half a dozen cards of mundane Equipment flying around and never bothered to use them more than one or two evenings.
These will probably be useful for beginners though and for remembering the damage reduction of heavier armors.
You probably need more than one of these to equip everybody.
I’m glad to see they’re complete. My biggest issue with this kind of product is always that they rapidly go out of date. Fingers crossed they’re popular enough that follow up books get their own cards too.
Is this an indication the card line is expanding? Can we expect to see spell cards, treasure/magic item cards, etc. over time? I really don't see the need for a card set for mundane equipment unless there is some as yet unforeseen product that will make use of them, like a full-sized "slot" card or something for players to place their gear as it applies to their character or something. IMO, players already know what their gear, especially basic/mundane does and don't need cards to remind them.
However, I can see it being a big help to have spell cards that can be used to track daily castings or for GMs to use as ready reference instead of having to check the full books every time especially if they are traveling for conventions.
Same could be said for treasure/magic item cards. How often do you issue items not knowing exactly what they do or all the stat info? Then the player has to look it up, slowing down the game. Plus having the card on the table would remind players of an item they have, but is not part of their individual inventory.
