equipment (3) = equipment (2), in “gaming, especially role-playing games”. As if “equipment” were gaming slang for the in-game entities which represent equipment. Michael Z. 2009-07-03 13:00 z

I think the intended nuance is that there can be things in a game that are "equipment" in the broadest sense but cannot be "equipped" (donned by the player as clothing or accessory). Equinox 13:40, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Example? Michael Z. 2009-07-05 19:40 z
For instance "dragonhide gloves" are equipment in World of Warcraft (not that I've ever played it), even though gloves would not usually be called "equipment" in real-world English. Conversely, World of Warcraft might well have things that would be equipment in English (perhaps a wheelbarrow or something, I dunno) that are not "equipment" in the role-playing sense because they can't be worn/applied to one's character.
