You are exploring an abandoned lot when you find an amazing machine which turns your stuff into better stuff! While, it turns it into better stuff some of the time. Sometimes, it seems to malfunction and spit out junk :-( But you use it anyways :-)
You start with some items, which I will tell you when you join. Then, each turn you can put up to three items into the machine, or add one of your items onto the machine to make it better if it is at least Epic rarity.
Then the machine will either give you some new items, if you put some in, or get better if you added an item to it.
Worthless (Can't be put in the machine)
Common (1% shift)
Uncommon (2% shift)
Rare (3% shift)
Very Rare (4% shift)
Epic (5% shift)
Legendary (6% shift)
Mythic (7% shift)
Fantastical (8% shift)
Godlike (9% shift)
Perfect I (10% shift)
Perfect II (10% shift)
Perfect III (10% shift)
Perfect IV (10% shift)
Perfect V (10% shift)
1 item one tier worse 40%
1 item one better 30%
2 items one tier worse 13%
1 item two tiers better* 8%
2 items of the same tier 5%
3 items one tier worse 3%
2 items one tier better* 1%
*Re-roll if new item(s) are mythic or better
For every tier above basic, 1 point of probability is shifted from "one tier better" to "one tier worse", up to a maximum of a 10% shift at Perfect I. Therefor, when you put an uncommon item in the machine, "one tier better" would have a 28% chance of occurring, and "one tier worse" would a have 42% chance of occurring
You can choose to start with either 3 Scrap items, 2 Junk items, or 1 Basic item
If you have two or more items that you think would fit together to create a new real world item, then you could do that. For example, if you had a stick, a spool of thread, and a hook, you could make a fishing rod. The tier of the new item would be up to me, but it would certainly be an improvement.
Bonus points for style! I can and possibly will veto a roll if I think you deserve better.
Items you find around you will automatically be worthless, and can't be put in the machine, so you can't just grab a stick of the ground and throw it in.
If you used to play Material Worth before I killed it, and wish to keep some of your items from that game, that can be arranged, and though the exact rarities won't be kept, bonuses may be given.
