Solution:  Load the equipment into a bag and then have the mob hold the 
bag.  You can even play with the <if> and <max_exist> values here so that 
the mob might even in fact have an empty bag, and the players would still 
have to kill it to find out.  For example:

M 0 1 1 3005		Load Puff at Market Square
E 1 1 99 17			Have her hold a bag of holding (max 99)
P 1 1000 3 1				Put obj 1000 in bag (max 3)
P 1 1001 2 1				Put obj 1001 in bag (max 2)
P 1 1002 1 1				Put obj 1002 in bag (max 1)

So the first time Puff is killed, her bag has 3 items, (1000, 1001, 1002)
the second time she's killed the bag only has 2 items (1000, 1001)
the third time, the bag only has one item (1000)
and after that, no more items are in the bag, although the bag will 
continue to load with Puff 96 times.
