I was wondering how do you guys handle magic items that players already have starting a campaign? Like Fjords mariner armor and such. I really like to give players some magic items at the beginning of campaigns and stuff and I’m not really sure how to include it.

The Mariner Armor was actually found after starting! But to your point, it’s up to you. If I want to start with players having a magic item or two, you can either work with the player directly, or give a scale (“1 common and 1 uncommon item, your choice”).
