    Need DM opinions about Gnome equipage...

    As a Gnome/ Druid, this character has access to many useful natural substances, as equipment /components for play.
    This character lives in the woods, talks to animals, and has, IMO, unique free access to items not listed in the Player's
    Manual. Items such as beeswax, honey, bee-glue(propolis), spider web, as a strong thin cord, spider venom, snake venom,
    large thorns, for natural darts, etc.

    As DM, what is your opinion of the acceptability of these items? Many mundane items would still be needed,
    vials for poison, a jar for honey, and a satchel, to carry equipment, for example.
    Laugh FullCaster laughed with this post

    Great especially as collecting all those things requires effort (is threat of being stung and poisoned) and extra containers
    None of the items listed are particularly special either

    Fullcaster, maybe you would care to elaborate on what you find so humorous. There is literally no mention of this issue
    through any published edition of the PHB.

    I think it's fine but you may want to put limits on it such as the amount a small humanoid might be able to carry along with other starting equipment. However, you could also make it a proficiency allowing the gathering of such items as long as it is in a type of natural terrain familiar to the gnome (at the DM's discretion of course).

    Makes sense. If the player has a decent knowledge of how that stuff could be used, even better.
