Outfit System

An outfit system is an attempt to make clothing more accessible and advanced, while not making it it too arbitrary or strict. This system is designed(based on other systems out there but made to fit Ylvestra) to allow the player to decide what they might find in clothing stores. The DM might set certain limits of sizes and lifestyles available.

Properties of Clothes


Depending on your size, your clothes use differing amounts of material to make. You will usually pay less as a small or tiny creature compared to a medium sized creature. And clothes found as loot or such can easily be of a size not comfortable to you. A piece of clothing can be tailored to fit you as long as it is at most one size larger than you are(large size clothes can be tailored to a medium size, and medium size clothes can be tailored to a small size).
