Equipment for the Every Day Waster

     All prices are in Widgets, of course!

----------------------------------
Air Filtering System
$2000
    A small portable generator pumps air throw a multi-filter set. Air is cleaned and pumped into an awaiting device via a support hose. The regulation valve allows the amount of air pumped out. The filters need to be replaced or washed after about 30 hours of usage. The filters maybe reused if washed properly but have a life span of 4 to 5 washings before they fall apart. The unit itself costs $2,000 and needs 1 gallon of gas per 3 hours and has a 3-gallon tank.
----------------------------------
AquaGill
$1000
    This device enables swimmers to breathe underwater for extended periods. It is nothing more than a mouthpiece equipped with two small filtration tubes (each 1Ē in diameter by 2Ē long). These tubes extract the oxygen from water and feed it to the swimmer. Speech is not possible while using the AquaGills. Power: 1 charge/hour.
----------------------------------
Chemical Light Sticks
$5
    These light sticks where used as toys and for fun. Now they can be an invaluable light sources. They have three sizes and last for a good amount of time. The small ones last about 10 hours, the medium (these were thought to be the largest) and large sized ones last 16. The small and medium sized 'glow sticks' (not the Doom devices) light up a 20 foot area, and are bright enough to read by (but I wouldn't recommend it for any long period of time). The largest ones were used by emergency crews and give off the same light as a 50 watt light bulb. The small ones cost $5, medium $10 and large $20.
----------------------------------
Chemscan
$4000
    This little beauty was a favorite of cops before the war. It was designed to sense illegal narcotic (thatís drugs for the vocabulary impaired or just to young to remember) buy the sent molecules they let off. It never replaced the good old fashion dog, but it came in handy non-the-less. It can be reprogrammed with a Palmcorder to detect other chemicals on a Hard (9) Professional: Computer Programmer roll and a sample of the chemical it will be programmed to scan for.
----------------------------------
Emergency Blanket
$10
    These blankets are a funky foil looking sheet that can save your life.
----------------------------------
Filtered sports bottle
$10
    Hiking enthusiasts and outdoorsy type have had been using these for decades. There where hundreds of manufactures but by 2060 they had adopted a set of standards that made the bottles and filters almost universally interchangeable. That was a boon to consumers, but for us wasters that is pure gold! While the bottle itself is nothing special, it has the threads to attach the filter inside.
    Each filter can be used to safely filter just over 50 gallons (6600 oz or 195 liters: that's enough water to fill the bottle 300 times). What's a lot of water, but at the cost of (at least) 300 widgets a filter, it's a little more than water treatment pills. Guess we are still paying for convenience.
----------------------------------
Laser Listening Device
$3000
    By bouncing a laser off of a flat, solid surface (such as a window) this device will detect vibrations and interpret them into sounds back in the device. The effective range is 1,000 yards. It uses 1 charge per minute of use from a medium sized battery.
----------------------------------
Pheromone Spray
$1000
    This stuff is very rare even before the bomb. After one usage of this stuff, people of the opposite sex will be intoxicated by your presence and want to be close to you. One dose lasts for 2d10 minutes and gives the user +6 to persuasion rolls. The cost is $1,000 per usage, but bottles usually have 1d4 usages.
----------------------------------
Port-a-toilet
$80
    Ever need to answer natureís call, and find out she faxed in a dump? Now wizzing behind a bush is one thing, but squatting can get messy. A guy I know make these Ďportableí toilets (buckets with a seat is more like it), but Iíve seen others that fold into brief cases and a couple others. Ronís will run you $80, the brief case $100 and the collapsible ones can run as high as $250. Oh, the TP cose extra...
----------------------------------
Potable Aqua
$5
    Each tablet will make one gallon of water bacteria and chemical free. While it won't get rid of all chemicals it does eliminate the vast majority. Enough to safely drink contaminated water. A bottle contains about 3d10 pills, the cost is per pill.
----------------------------------
Pressurized Tents
$1000
    These tents are completely airtight and must have a separate air supply (i.e.: air tanks or an air filtering system {see bellow}). Interring & exiting the tent takes 30 seconds (as the occupant opens the interior flap, climbs in, closing it and then opening the exterior flap) or in an emergency both the interior and exterior flaps can be opened fairly quickly (2 actions) but the tent loses it air tight integrity. The tent will stand up against some of the roughest weather and has an anti-corrosive cloth covering (almost any natural weather short of a twister won't hurt it and it can withstand black rain for a few hours). A one-man tent costs $1,000 and a two-man tent costs $2,000 from there the sky is the limit.
----------------------------------
Solor Rechargers
$1000
    Power! Everyone wants it, but few have it. Now I\'m no talking about abstract power, I\'m talking \'Electricity\'! The man that can charge a battery has (as the old saying goes) a license to print money (not that paper money has any value anymore). No, having a pocket device that can collect solar power can charge up our devices, is worth a king\'s ransom. But, don\'t let anyone know you have it or you might as well paint a target on the back of your skull and dance in front of a firing squad.
Pricing: this can get sticky, cuz everyone wants these but can\'t always afford them. Small pocket ones (like those to the right) go for $1,000 a pop and can supply one charge a minute. A roll up model will run you $2,000 and can charge a device up at 3 charges a minute. The Brunton Solarport is meant to withstand the riggers of the west and supply 5 charges a minute all for $4,000. You can go bigger, like this one or the Voltaic backpack but the likelihood of hiding such devices are much harder, and the price is out there ($10,000) but the charges per minute are massive (15 per minute).
----------------------------------
Swedish Alcohol Stove
$300
    This mess-kit on steroids has everything you need to cook a meal on the go, save for the fuel. There is a pot, frying pan, "burner" and bottle to hold the hooch. When your done it fits together in a small bucket.
----------------------------------
Tree-Pee Tent
$1000
    Iíve seen some weird things that people have come up with, but here is a new one on me. Itís interesting to say the least. Take a tee-pee and hang it from a tree and walla! Now I can see some advantages from sleeping on the ground, but the thing hangs a foot or so up, so even a squirrel can bit you from there...
----------------------------------
Water Proof Strike Anywhere Matches
$10
    These little suckers can be a lifesaver. Do I need to tell you about them? There are about 100 per box.

Part of RPGFanSite.com; My Ju Ju's Fan Sites.

This site is a Deadlands: Hell on Earth fan site. Deadlands is the property of the Pinnacle Entertainment Group and Hell on Earth is a post apocalyptic, alternate history setting. I use both the "Classic" rules and well as the Savage rules for this site (sorry no D20...yet). By default the rules for everything are "Classic" but by clicking on "Smiling Jack" (the Savage Worlds' logo) at the bottom of the navigation pannel you can change (almost) all the rules information to Savage Worlds. Have fun, enjoy and please let me know what you think or if there are any problems, questions or you would like to submit something/content.
