GROWING up as a Dungeons & Dragon role playing enthusiast, it's obvious to me that an inventory list is mandatory for any adventure.
How else will you know if you have enough potions of healing or didn't forget to pack your +2 magic sword of dexterity? So here's a nearly complete list for the Dice Travels adventure.
[Since composing this list, some things have already been ditched, and others have been packed in different locations – Ed]
2 decks of cards
2 gimmick decks
Multiplying coin trick
Thermos of coconut oil
Set of dice: d20, d20, d12, d10, d8 d6 and d4
Backup dice: d20, d20, d12, d10, d8 d6 and d4

Headphones – bluetooth headphones that I can't get to work, plus the bluetooth headphones I accidentally bought to replace the set I couldn't get to work, which, of course, I also can't get to work.
