Hey there, and welcome to Material Worth. The basic premise of the game is that the more items you have, the more things you can do. The entire point of the game is to gain more and more powerful items, and to amass a huge selection of knick-knacks in your inventory! Not interested yet? Keep reading to learn about the epic world YOU could take part in!

Quests:
If you want, you can go on a quest, to try and find unique items that can not be attained in any other way! They may have special powers, be technologically ahead of the time, or just be an epic looking collectors item.
Quests are important because they can give unique items.

Battles:
Your character can partake in battles, going up against other players or NPCs for fantastical rewards. This can sometimes net you a few fancy items, like a dead bird!

Magic/Tech:
Each character has a certain amount of Spirit Points (SP). SP can be used to cast powerful spells, or create deadly technological banes, but it is also your health, so watch out. High tier items can also sometimes have a certain amount of SP built into the item. When the item takes damage or activates its powers, it uses up some of its SP, and when the item has no SP left, it is destroyed. The downside of SP items is that you can lose them, the upside is that they can have magical or technologically advanced effects.
Magic/Tech is important because it is the only way to break the laws of physics.

What happens if I lose all my SP?
You lose 1 item of my choice. Probably your most powerful or rarest one.

What is the time period?
Anything! The higher the tier of the item, the more likely that it comes from a more advanced era.

What are the different "tiers" of items?
Normal, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. Note that you can only have 1 Legendary item.

If an item is Unique then only one them exists. Legendary items are automatically Unique

How many SP do I start with?
Each character has 10 SP at the beginning of the game.

How large is my inventory?
You can have any number of items in your inventory, except for Legendary items.

How do I begin?
Decide on a non magical, medieval age item, and state your first action!

Everyone spawns in a large grassy field with a red painted barn in the corner of it. To the South and East, a forest, To the North, mountains, and to the West, more fields.

One final note: Please keep track of your own inventory. Put all your items in a spoiler after every third post or so, or whenever you gain a new item.

    I start with a basic pickaxe. (Question if you win a battle do you get to steal money?)
    I search the barn for items to pick up.

    No, the only way to get money is betting.

    The barn contains:

    2x Hay bale
    1x Pitchfork
    1x Bucket
    5x wood scrap

    There is a trapdoor in the corner, with 2 men standing on it.

    Okay, outside, the cows continue their munching, and the farmer leaning against the wall hasn't moved. You see a bright light, far up in the sky.

    It looks like a shooting star! You can see it get closer and closer! 1 km. 500 m. 200 m! 100...

    I gasp and run towards it to see where it landed.

    It lands in the next field over, to the West. A large plume of smoke rises from the ground. You can't get near it until the smoke clears out.

    The smoke starts to thin out, and you can see a light through the billowing masses.

    Around you is a tree, some cows, a barn, a farmer, lots of grass, some forest and mountains, a crow, a bunch of pebbles, some clouds in the sky, a few sticks, a fence, a large amount of dirt and dust, and you.

    Also, you should keep track of the rarity of each item (Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary). The items you currently have are both common rarity.

    Just my own personal thoughts on the rules system . . . Would suck to lose a unique, one-of-a-kind item to an NPC, and then nobody else ever sees it again. I feel it would be better if you add in that maybe either . . .

    A. NPCs can't take unique items from players(still other players can for hopefully obvious reasons), or
    B. When an NPC takes a unique item, it will be put back into circulation at some point?

    I was thinking that usually, if the general vibe is that an item was cool and liked, and then it was stolen, then it would get back into the game at some point. I mean, some low level minion mook type of guy probably isn't going to be able to take your legendary whatever, but maybe a high "level" villain. The idea is, if a villain is powerful enough to take an item from you, they are also powerful enough to be a reoccurring threat. So option B.

    @QuentinPlaysMC

    You manage to get closer, and you see the meteorite is a just about the size of a marble. It is made of a dull orange material, and seems to glow very faintly.

    @Brainstorm

    Around the field you spawned in, you can see Quentin exploring in a huge cloud of smoke. Items you find around the yard: A stick, a dead bird, some pebbles, lots of grass.

    You could go find a battle, a quest, search for items like you have been doing so far, or bet on something.

    You find a stick that you could use as a walking staff, or a weak weapon.

    You do have a longsword...

    You smack it for 1 damage

    The skunk blasts you with a stink attack! -1 SP from it, -2 from you.

    Your SP: 8/10

    Skunk's SP: 1/3

    Also, from now on, please put your inventory in a spoiler at the end of your post.

    When a GM tells you to do something, it's generally a wise idea to do it. ;)

    @Brainstorm I am aware that you may be able to remember what you have, but it is much easier for me if you put a recap of your inventory at the end of your post.

    You kill the skunk! You get [1 XP] and a [Common Skunk tail].

    im not really wasting my time with stuff like that, if a game doesn't provide a page for me, then I either play it like that or just not.

    I thrust at the cow nearby with my sword

    Brain, if you don't list your items it's easy to say you have something you don't, in the event the GM forgets.
