Clarification of some "Create a Chariot" rules

The idea behind "Create a Chariot" is that you Create a Chariot

This means that:

▲ Creatures must be of a size that can PULL a Chariot
▲ Tools must be tools that you can BUILD a Chariot
▲ Wheels must be "a circular object that revolves on an axle and is fixed below a vehicle or other object to enable it to move easily over the ground" and of a size that can SUPPORT the Chariot/Driver
(wheels off a car, bike, wagon.... are ok; a ferris wheel or roulette wheel are not)


When in doubt, ask yourself if you can USE the item to actually CREATE this Chariot. If you have to question it, the answer is no!
