Common equipment includes various traps, a rifle (often anachronistic), and of course a ''really'' big knife, either a Bowie Knife, or an Arkansas Toothpick.

** In Sweden a mountain man was a person who worked in the mountain iron mines, most famously in Berslagen and Dalarna. They where nearly always armed (since the Swedish Yeomen - much like the English - where required by law to own a certain set of weapons during the middle ages.) And occasionally used them against the King, the Sherriff, or anyone else they felt threatened their interests. Engelbrekt Engelbrektsson is the most famous example of a Swedish mountain man rebel. Sometimes however, they fought ''for'' the king, like in the case of Gustav Vasa and his Dalecarlians (men from Dalarna.) In a similar vein, people who had committed crimes would ''always'' recieve amnesty, if they took up work in a mountain mine (except if they had done murder or high treason.) Where they where guarded by "mountain soldiers" who most likely were serving a sentence themselves. Needless to say, they where not nice people.
