"Can I loot it?" - likely one of the more agonizing statements a GM will hear from players.

I rarely end up asking for loot. It might be a mindset I've held on to from the early days (where my characters barely lived longer than two sessions before I had to reroll), but I've never really found much point in grabbing anything that wasn't straight up cash. Since we rarely, if ever, managed to find ourselves in a store that actually wanted to buy our stuff in those days, the idea of carrying random sets of crappy armor and weapons around never made sense to me. Of course, I always jumped on the random magical item, but those tended to appear just as often as the stores, if not less so.

But ever since that ridiculous shopping trip in my FO:E game, I've been slowly coming around to trying to pick up everything that might have value to it. Of course, it kind of helps that we have a truck to carry these thing...

My character in FO:E currently has some odd loot, including a rare non-creepy Pinkie Pie poster, two plastic bat decorations, and a lab coat that can only be described as "What Bill Nye would wear as a pony".

Bow tie included.

It doesn't come up much at our table. My current campaign is Legend of the Five Rings(IN SPAAAAAACE), where you don't generally have loot because samurai are supposed to be above such things as material wealth. Problem is, I'm running it with the Cypher System, which presupposes that you're going to be finding one-shot magical items all the time, so I've had to find a thematic way to work around that.

Legend of the Five Rings IN SPAAAAAACE? Well, Mr. you have got me very much curious!

It's one of the alternate setting options in 'Imperial Histories 2,' the last chapter. Although as with all of their alternate setting options, it's kind of sparse on actual details, so I've drawn on half a dozen space opera anime (plus a side order of Warhammer 40k) to flesh it out.
