Practicality



There are those items in your day
which you know you just need as a
matter of course, to sustain a normal
life
Whatever it may mean to you at the
moment, whether that is an automatic
weapon or a small-bladed knife
To get you the essentials for the day
in which you find yourself, even the
basics of everyday food or drink
That your sensibilities tell you that
you require, though you aren't sure
if the quest will leave you on the
brink
