I will post an r11 in this thread before too long, once I've heard about the recent suggested edits/changes. A new version won't be on the Downloads page until it's been thoroughly edited/vetted by Solo and others first.

Here's a proposed r11. The camel, donkey, and mule need cost values.

Equipment Emporium has camels at 50 gp and donkeys and mules at 8 gp each.

Thanks! That seems pretty low (donkeys & mules) compared to even plain old riding horses...

It does. I think the price of camels is a bit low as well. I would be inclined to price donkeys and mules similar to ponies and camels like horses.

I've been looking through the Beginner's Essentials in preparation for a game with new players and was thinking that the Equipment Packs from Equipment Emporium would be a useful addition to help speed up char gen.

I also noticed that the section on Holy Water vs. Undead mentions 1d6 of fire damage, which seems incorrect.

It is incorrect. Thanks for pointing it out!

Ok here's r12. Updated prices for camel, donkey, & mule. Also corrected holy water section, and added note on corporeal vs. incorporeal undead.
