If you used a credit card before it was deactivated, you'd be fine--everyone knows police are worthless in D&D.

Besides--if it's okay for an adventurer to kill me for my loot, it's certianly okay for them to use my credit cards. That would be a weird legal line to draw.

It's not so much a legal line but that it's not guaranteed cash.  Lets ignore the legality of it and cops and just say banks or "evil" organizations that employ us as henchmen would cut them off once they knew we were day so as not to loose money, thus my magic sword reference above.

Who is going to call it in if you're dead?
You can spend a lot on the credit card before anyone thinks to cancel it.

So, if you counted my credit card and bank card, that'd bump me up to about 1/8 CR.

Credit Card companies may be evil, but they're hardly wizards.

A vital issue that has yet to be addressed here is that loot is not always carried on one's person. For example, a dragon typically carries almost no equipment or other valuables, yet are high CR and, once you find their hoards, worth (possibly literally) tons of money.

No, I'm not just bitter that if you only count what I have on me I'm worth squat in xp.

I suppose that technically most of us should count our cars, even if we're not in them at the time, because we carry the keys around. I know that if I killed an orc who was carrying the keys to a Honda, I'd count the Honda as loot from the orc.

exactly. If I was killed here at work there would be nothing to let hte killer find my car, which is 20 miles away.
However, he would also have access to the office where I work. But I suppose that's more of an adventure lead than actual treasure.

Its pretty much the same as finding a key to a dungeon room or a chest or something, its only treasure if you find part b.

Unless your Honda key is made out of some sort of precious metal.

Or has keyless entry so you can just walk around pushing the unlock button.

Sounds like a magic item.  Should be worth something.
