TWO QUESTIONS:
#1 Since it is still technically a Raid Scenario is the gateway still present on the tabletop just in case you want to take care of some extra business during a rescue?
#2 Does the prisoner lose his equipment even if he is freed? In the rescue scenario it says he only has a knife and there is no mention of a Loot counter that might be his stuff.

It's been a few years but I have played quite a bit of ORB in my time so I feel pretty confident answering these. 1. No, there is no gateway in a rescue. 2. The captive can't access their equipment during the game. It is assumed that someone has grabbed it and is returned to the captive after the battle. One sometimes popular houserule is to add a loot counter representing the equipment to the scenario to make things more interesting.
