Alright, this is what I think I'm gonna do...
1. Head (for helmets, hats, sweatbands, whatever)
2. Neck (for necklace, scarves, etc.)
4. Back (for coats, cloaks, capes)
5. Body (for a shirt, breastplate, jumpsuit...)
6. Belt (for any kind of belt thingie including gunbelts, toolbelts, and scabbards)
7. Legs (pants, blah blah blah)
8. Feet(boots, whatever)
9. Hands (gauntlets, gloves)
10, Wrist (bracers, wristwatches, bracelets)
12. Pocket (towels, magic gems, lucky charms)
13. Ear (could be earrings, could be a comm thingie or something in a futuristic deal)
14. Eye (sunglasses, spectacles, targeting reticule, whatever)
And there's two slots for what weapons you got in your hands, which might both be used by a two handed weapon, or it might be two separate pistols, or a pistol and a shield, if you are in ancient greece or something heh.
The only thing I'm not sure about is how many slots to do for stuff like Rings and junk.
I was kinda kinda thinking that maybe I should just set a certain number of Jewelry slots aside for Rings, Pocket Items, Necklaces, Ear thingies, Bracelets, and Eyewear, so you can put whatever you want in there, like, have four earrings, or two rings an eyepiece and and a wristwatch, or even four pairs of sunglasses (what the hell do I care really heh).
And then it'd be something like this:
8. Left Hand Weapon
9. Right Hand Weapon
I think that second one is better.
And you don't gotta have it be jewelry (if you don't like jewelry) 'cause there's crap like Doctor Who Scarves and Hitchhiker Towels and Voodoo Dolls and Pocket Editions of Time Travel for Dummies and stuff.
I think its better if I do it that way for another reason, 'cause if I make the slots too complicated, then it makes it more of a hassle for people to add stuff, where a broad grouping for weird little trinkets makes it easier for 'em.
Plus this setup fits any kind of theme or time period and stuff.
Well, the "hands" slot is still kinda stupid, wearing gloves and mittens is pretty damn lame when it ain't fashionable to wear gauntlets, but it got Grandfathered into roleplaying games before I could do anything about it heh.
Y'know, like, all us Computer Guys would have to wear magical fingerless bum gloves so we could type and still get the stat bonuses in that universe ahaha.
Hmm, mebbe I will get rid of the "hands" slot.
"Body" could take care of that.
And gauntlets could be a melee weapon, and then I wouldn't need gloves.
Nah, that still ain't right, even with a spacesuit there's gloves.
And "hands" sorta make up for the way we don't have "arm" clothes heh.
