-In order to equip a Gear card, you must have available a slot in which to equip it. If there are no available slots, you must first unequip another Gear card. See the [[Player'​s Guide Chapter 7#​slots|Player'​s Guide]] for more information on slots. +In [[combat|combat]] and [[exploration|exploration]] ​[[scenario|scenarios]], Gear can be dropped in the occupied [[section|section]] or [[region|region]]. Doing so is free (does not require the [[Strategy Phase|Strategy Phase]]), even if it is equipped; this would immediately unequip the Gear. Similarly, Gear can be freely handed to an ally in the same occupied location, even if equipped. These activities do not permit ​immediately and freely replacing ​the Gear with other Gear, and they do not bypass the restrictions on unequipping [[clothing|Clothing]] and Armor or any other special restrictions.

 Most Gear can be used repeatedly. However, [[item|Items]] are unique in that they can only be used once per scenario. Specific Gear entries may provide other limitations for their use. Most Gear can be used repeatedly. However, [[item|Items]] are unique in that they can only be used once per scenario.

-All Gear cards have a [[wealth|Wealth]] entry. This is the cost in Wealth that a PC must pay in order to purchase the Gear. Likewise, a PC gains this amount of Wealth if they sell the Gear. Economic conditions, story considerations,​ and other factors may alter the actual Wealth value listed on the card; the DM determines the actual Wealth paid or gained when buying or selling.+All Gear cards have a [[wealth|Wealth]] entry.

Each Gear includes in its Wealth value any cost for upkeep, including replacing the Gear as a result of normal use (but not if it is lost through other means).
  
-For Adversaries,​ the Gear keyword denotes an entry as being reliant on physical Gear. Some PC abilities can force an enemy to drop or otherwise unequip Gear, which would then make the corresponding entry or entries unusable. In other cases, Gear might represent throwing ​weapons ​or the like of which the Adversary has a limited supply; once the supply is exhausted, the Adversary cannot play the entry without picking up previously-thrown Gear.+For Adversaries,​ the Gear keyword denotes an entry as being reliant on physical Gear, which is listed elsewhere in the Adversary'​s text.
