Unique/Weird Items
« on: January 23, 2019, 02:59:50 PM »
So, looking around the book and in actual games, there are weird one off items that don't have stats or real uses.

How would you use these items in game?

Do they have charges? Are they fragile? Do they actually have a use? What about other things?

I would think each would work differently for sure.

Examples:
The Detoxin runner's trumpet
Slingshots
Winter clothes

Please give me more suggestions as items and/or how you might use them.

I'm trying to come up with similar costs for an item in my game: an expensive violin that one of the takers keeps as part of her backstory as a musician. Unfortunately her last Crumble has her seriously addicted to Soma, and now the upkeep cost has her thinking of selling it. Aside from the humanity hit this would involve, not sure how to gague it's worth in game terms...

for the violin, its worth shit to a taker, it could be a score of its own to someone in the recession, otherwise, just roll Black for bounty in the area, like with most scrounged goods.

also there's an upkeep to consider, strings and rosin arnt super common as well as other considerations for an Instrument.  :)
