Rather, if an item would be acquirable to someone of your wealth (as show on the chart above), and there is a reasonable explanation for why your character would have it, you can have it. That said, when you venture away from your home turf, things can get a little murky. When that happens, I would like an inventory drafted that lists what you are bringing with you, and where it is stored. If something is on that list, then it is definitely in that place (barring npc interference). If, in the course of adventures, you think it obvious or reasonable that your character would have something on their person or stashed somewhere and it is not on the inventory then we will handle it one of three ways:

2. If the item is major (game altering), and the reasoning is good, then you will roll Luck to see if you have that item. Example: Holy shoot! This airplanes fuel tank is leaking, and we need every drop to get back over land! If only I had a stray stick of gum in my pocket to patch the hole!
3. Regardless of the significance of the item at that moment, if the reasoning is bad then you do not have the item. Example: These cultists stripped me naked and beat me! Now I need to impress the leader to get away. I read in that diary that he’s a sucker for Juicy Fruit! I have a stick tucked away in my
