Do Not Use This As The Shoppe
This Is Not The Shoppe Thank You



Please note that the items you are able to access per Wealth Tier in the Shoppe are intended for the use of your PC only. You do not need to supply food, clothing, weapons, armor, or *any* items for your NPCs. NPCs can be assumed to have their own Wealth Tier (as per the Wealth & NPCs page in the wiki), which means that they have access to the food, clothing, and equipment they need without you needing to provide it.

If you have questions about this or any section of the Shoppe, please direct them to the Shoppe Q&A. Thank you.

Overview

Coin.png


There are four common coins called nels used as currency across the regions of Idalos: onyx nels (ON), gold nels (GN), silver nels (SN), and copper nels (CN). An onyx nel is worth 500 gold nels; a gold nel is worth 10 silver nels; and a silver nel is worth 10 copper nels.

Although these coins are accepted throughout every region in Idalos, some regions might also have their own currencies. The Iulure Isles, for example, use a different form of coin. These coins are imprinted with the seal of eight, the eight celestial beings who gave rise to the Immortals. As such, currency in the Iulure Isles serves as a reminder for why the races fight to survive.

OOC Note: Although your PC will be using nels (or perhaps a city-specific currency) while in character, it is not necessary for you to keep a record of every onyx, gold, silver, and copper. Instead, Standing Trials has an independent Wealth System, comprised of Wealth Tiers which rely on a measurement of wealth called Wealth Points. Each PC will belong to one of ten Wealth Tiers, each of which represents the amount of wealth a PC has. Tier 1 PCs are the least wealthy, for example, while Tier 10 PCs are the most. Each Wealth Tier allows access to different items and materials listed on the site Shoppe, with the lower Tiers having easy access to poorer-quality or average-quality goods, and the higher Tiers having easy access to higher-quality and luxury goods.

Every item listed on the Shoppe will have a Wealth Tier associated with it. This is the Tier at which the item becomes commonplace. If your PC's Wealth Tier matches that of the item (or is higher than that of the item), it means that you can afford the item on a trial-by-trial basis. If your PC's Wealth Tier is lower than that of the item, it means that to have access to the item, you must purchase it with your Wealth Points (or WP).

Please note the specific rules per section of the Shoppe before purchasing anything. Thanks!

General Rules

Crafting

A Craft Skill is a skill related to hand-crafting items, such as Smithing, Glassblowing, or Jewelry Crafting. Due to how the Shoppe and the Wealth System work, a PC with a Craft Skill may be able to make items of a higher quality than those usually available to them at their Wealth Tier. Whether or not your PC is able to do this depends on your Skill Level in your Craft Skill. Because higher-quality items are usually crafted with higher-quality materials, the Crafting Materials available to you also depend on the level of your Craft Skill. These Crafting Materials are the tools, equipment, and other materials that your PC might use when crafting an item. They are located in the Crafting Materials section of the Shoppe.

When purchasing materials for crafting, depending on your proficiency in your Craft Skill, you may be able to make purchases at a reduced rate. Thus, having a Craft Skill, especially one at a high proficiency, is of direct benefit to your PC.

Skill Level of Craft Skill Quality of Crafted Items Resources Available
Unskilled poor or poor+ quality n/a
extra line here
Novice basic or basic+ quality n/a
extra line here
Competent average or average+ quality access to Crafting Materials 1 Tier above your own Wealth Tier
extra line here
Expert good or good+ quality access to Resources Crafting Materials 1 Tier above your own Wealth Tier
Master or Grandmaster masterwork or masterwork+ quality access to Crafting Materials 2 Tiers above your own Wealth Tier
extra line here

Please note that this refers only to situations in which PCs are purchasing materials. If, in character, you have an oak tree and are a Master of Woodworking, you are allowed to craft a masterwork oak table regardless of your Wealth Tier. However, the crafting of large items should always be RP'd. It is not ok to assume that you built yourself a masterwork table, or any large or expensive item, without devoting IC time to it. Please use this rule sensibly; it's there to give players creative freedom.

Please also note that "access" does not mean that you have an unlimited supply of tools, equipment, and materials at that Tier. The amount of Crafting Materials allowed to you, as always, depends on the specifications given by the Shoppe. In other words, assume that you have the same amount of daily / seasonal / cyclical access to each Crafting Material as someone at that Tier.

PC Businesses

If you are buying from a PC business, then you, as a customer, may purchase items from that business as if you were one Wealth Tier higher in the Tier System. This is to encourage players to make purchases from PC businesses. Any purchases that deal with items more than one Tier above yours are to be made at your usual Tier cost (as dictated in the Shoppe).

Please, however, see the PC Business Guide for information as to how purchasing might work. For example, you may make purchases at a PC business through its Transaction Thread, or by threading directly with the business owner.

And remember that any items purchased at a PC business must be recorded in your Character Sheet.

Edibles

Rules For This Section.

Please refer to the tables below (see Items Available Per Tier.) for availability of food per Wealth Tier. Per Tier, assume that you have access to enough food on a trial by trial basis to feed one person.

Purchasing Edibles


You may make these purchases as many times as you wish, as long as you have the Wealth Points to afford it.

Cost Purchase Quality of Purchase
1 WP 40 trials' worth of food poor quality
1 WP 35 trials' worth of food poor+ quality
1 WP 30 trials' worth of food basic quality
1 WP 25 trials' worth of food basic+ quality
1 WP 20 trials' worth of food average quality
1 WP 15 trials' worth of food average+ quality
1 WP 10 trials' worth of food luxury quality
1 WP 5 trials' worth of food luxury+ quality

Players can buy most food items from their city's marketplace. It is up to each individual player as to whether or not their PC is hunting for or cooking their own food or purchasing it at markets or restaurants. It is important that you consider your regional variations when thinking about what your PC eats / cooks / buys. Seasons and availability will make a massive difference. Please note that the examples included in the Edibles Section of the Shoppe are real-world examples and are meant to give you, the player, an idea of what is available. However, as Idalos is a fantasy setting, please check your city resources and be aware of the more unusual ingredients you may utilize.


Because in this section (the Edibles Section of the Shoppe) you are able to access items which are limited in number, modified, or are otherwise unusual, you are required to keep a record of any unusual items in your CS. There are no exceptions to this rule.


Items Available Per Tier.

Please note that PCs may purchase additional edibles using their Wealth Points.

Wealth Tier Diet Quality Notes
Tier 1 Poor At Tier 1 a PC lives from hand to mouth. Edibles available are incredibly plain and limited unless they have been begged for, donated, or gathered in the wild. Most edibles are likely to be of poor quality and are completely unseasoned.
Tier 2 Poor+ At Tier 2 a PC lives on a very limited budget. Edibles at this level are plain, unprocessed, and long-lasting (e.g. grains, beans, root vegetables). Most edibles are likely to be of poor or basic quality. There is no access to seasoning unless it has been gathered in the wild. Sweet treats are not available.
Tier 3 Basic At Tier 3 a PC lives on a limited budget. Edibles at this level are simple, with low-effort processing (e.g. flour, milk, eggs, leafy vegetables, seasonal fruit and nuts). Most edibles are likely to be of basic quality. There is minimal access to seasoning unless it has been gathered in the wild. Sweet treats are limited to fruit and honey.
Tier 4 Basic+ At Tier 4 a PC lives on a tight budget. Edibles at this level are simple, with low-effort processing (e.g. flour, milk, eggs, leafy vegetables, seasonal fruit and nuts). Most edibles are likely to be of basic or average quality. There is access to basic seasoning. Sweet treats are limited to fruit, unrefined sugars (e.g. beet sugars), and honey.
Tier 5 Average At Tier 5 a PC lives on a budget. Edibles at this level are likely to be of average quality, with some processing and variety (e.g. bread, butter, cheese, fish, salted meat, all kinds of fruit and veg). There is more access to a better variety and quality of seasoning. Sweet treats of honey, unrefined sugars, and simple candies are available. Expensive or rare items are very limited.
Tier 6 Average+ Edibles available at Tier 6 are likely to be of average or good quality, with some processing and variety (e.g. bread, butter, cheese, fish, salted meat, all kinds of fruit and veg). There is access to a good variety and quality of seasoning. Sweet treats of honey, unrefined sugars, and more candies are available. Expensive or rare items are limited.
Tier 7 Luxury Edibles available at Tier 7 are likely to be of good or luxurious quality, with plenty of variety (e.g. fresh meat, refined sugars, imported spices, pressed oils, preserves). All edibles are well-seasoned. Sweet treats are widely available. Expensive or rare items are also available.
Tier 8+ Luxury+ Edibles available at Tier 8 and above are of the best quality, with excellent variety and decoration (e.g. rare meats, imported luxuries, complex dishes, fancy desserts). Seasoning of all kinds is widely available. Sweet treats of all kinds are commonplace. Expensive, rare, and luxury items are available.

Please note that these are the levels at which certain edibles can be easily bought from the market. Lower-Tier ingredients may be processed into higher-Tier foods as long as it is done in thread (e.g. flour into bread). Please also note that each Tier's access to sweet treats is a good indicator of whether or not other non-essential edibles are available.

When determining your PC's diet, always ensure to take regional variations in cuisine into account.

Finally, while the higher Tiers have access to more and better food, it is up to each individual player, as long as their Wealth Tier allows, to decide whether they would rather eat fancy cakes and champagne or mutton and potatoes. Each player, regardless of Tier, is able to access the type and/or quality of edibles at their Wealth Tier and below.

Drugs & Medicine

Purchasing Additional Items From This Section.

Please refer to the tables below (see Items Available Per Tier.) for availability of medicine and alcohol per Wealth Tier. Items Available Per Tier gives an outline of items that your PC may access without spending Wealth Points (so, for free) depending on your Wealth Tier.

For examples of drugs and medicines, see your City Lore, the Standing Trials wiki, the Medicine, Poison, Drugs & Reagents section of the Creating the World Forum, or submit your own drug or medicine (also in the Creating the World forum).

Purchasing Drugs or Medicine

Please note that when making purchases in this section, you are purchasing either drugs or medicine for 1 season / cycle / arc. If you would like to purchase both drugs and medicine for 1 season / cycle / arc, you must make your purchase twice.

Also, please note that 1 season's / cycle's / arc's worth of drugs or medicine may include more than 1 specific type of drug or medicine. This is a general purchase. When purchasing drugs, alcohol is included.

Drugs & Medicine Quality
  • Poor-quality drugs and medicine:
    • Will be made out of cheap ingredients by someone with no or very limited skill in crafting drugs and medicine. Drugs and medicines are generally unprocessed (e.g. left in their roughest forms), and have a significant chance of negative side effects.


  • Basic-quality drugs and medicine:
    • Will be made out of basic-quality ingredients by someone with Novice-level skill in crafting drugs and medicine. Drugs and medicines are generally unprocessed though may have some processing, and have a good chance of negative side effects.


  • Average-quality drugs and medicine:
    • Will be made out of average-quality ingredients by someone with Competent-level skill in crafting drugs and medicine. Drugs and medicines have some processing, and have an even chance of negative side effects.


  • Good-quality drugs and medicine:
    • Will be made out of good-quality ingredients by someone with Expert-level skill in crafting drugs and medicine. Drugs and medicines are well-processed and double-checked for quality, which means that they will likely not have many negative side effects. However, the side effects inherent to each individual drug or medicine still apply when overused (e.g. hangovers when having consumed too much alcohol, etc.).


  • Luxury-quality drugs and medicine:
    • Will be made out of high-quality ingredients by someone with Master- or Grandmaster-level skill in crafting drugs and medicine. Drugs and medicines are very well-processed and are of the highest quality, which means that they will almost never have any negative side effects. However, the side effects inherent to each individual drug or medicine still apply when overused.


Examples of skills related to drug- and medicine-crafting are Chemistry, Gardening, Brewing, and Vinting.


Because in this section (the Drugs & Medicine Section of the Shoppe) you are able to access items which are limited in number, modified, or are otherwise unusual, you are required to keep a record of any unusual items in your CS. There are no exceptions to this rule.


Items Available Per Tier.

Please note that PCs may purchase additional drugs and medicine using their Wealth Points.

Please also note that alcohol is considered a drug and is a part of the Drugs & Medicine Section of the Shoppe. Because alcohol is commonplace in Idalos, your PC has some access to alcohol without having to use your Wealth Points. However, any additional alcohol and all other drugs you want your PC to use must be purchased with WP.

Wealth Tier Notes
Tier 1 At Tier 1 a PC lives from hand to mouth. Medicines and alcohol available are incredibly limited unless they have been begged for, donated, or gathered in the wild. Medicines and alcohol are likely to be of poor quality.

You may choose to have lower-Tier clothing *instead* of the clothing offered to you at your own Wealth Tier. Making alterations in this way does not change how many outfits you are due by your Tier. Tier 10 will still be able to choose 7 outfits, for example.

Tier Access


Due to the items available, different Tiers have access to more and higher-quality jewelry (Tier 1 jewelry is of poor quality, Tier 2 jewelry is of poor+ quality, Tier 3 jewelry is of basic quality, etc.). Going up the Tier System, you may access items from the Tiers below you. This means that you may access jewelry that is worse in quality than that which is offered to you, if you so please.

You may choose to have lower-Tier jewelry *instead* of the jewelry offered to you at your own Wealth Tier. Making alterations in this way does not change how many sets of jewelry you are due by your Tier. Tier 10 will still be able to choose 5 sets of jewelry, for example.

So, at Tier 6:

Common Materials Used in Jewelry
  • Iron
    • Iron jewelry is very inexpensive and is a common choice for the common folk. Studier than both copper and bronze jewelry though less pretty, it is usually used to make jewelry which the wearer does not want to lose or break.


  • Bronze
    • Bronze jewelry is another common choice for the majority of the population. Despite its popularity, bronze is not the best metal for making jewelry and because of this, it is very likely to break. Bronze chains don't hold well for a long period of time, and any stones or beads used as decoration tend to chip off. This means that unless the jewelry is well-tended, it will fall apart and need replacing.


  • Copper
    • Copper jewelry is much like bronze jewelry in that it is very likely to bend, scratch, and break. Copper jewelry is also very likely to stain the skin. Despite that, it has a very pretty, reddish hue.


  • Silver
    • Jewelry made from silver is often sought after because it gives the wearer a certain noble air. Silver jewelry can withstand a lot of wear and tear as well as hold onto the stones and beads set into it. Silver doesn't stain the skin like bronze or copper, but it does tend to show a lot of scratches over time and also has the tendency to lose its luster.


  • Gold
    • Gold jewelry is a way of signifying one's status. Though it can still be scratched, gold doesn't lose its luster the same way that silver does. It doesn't stain the skin like bronze or copper, and isn't known for losing its beads and stones like some of the other metals. Most consider gold the best type of metal for jewelry, which is why gold is standard when it comes to the mid-to-high Wealth Tiers.


  • Onyx
    • Onyx jewelry is typically worn by the champions of the Immortals, royalty, and the political powerhouses of the world. Owning onyx jewelry defines one's station the moment the person steps into the room. Onyx is a prized, rare stone that is sought after by most. Unlike gold jewelry, onyx jewelry hardly ever receives scratches, and to have a piece of jewelry comprised entirely of onyx is exceedingly rare.

For the purposes of purchasing armor and shielding, 1 full set of armor comes with 1 shield of the same quality and type.

Armor & Shield Quality


Please keep in mind that the style of your armor depends on the smith who has crafted it. The same way that different fine artists approach painting or sculpting in different ways, each smith has their own method of artistry, their own style and technique. One person's scalemail armor might look very different from another's. Armor and shielding, by no means, has to be uniform.

That being said, there are certain standards when it comes to the quality of your armor.

  • Poor-quality armor and shields:
    • Will be made out of cheap materials by someone with no or very limited craft skills. Armor and shields are plain, unadorned, and are likely to need very careful upkeep lest they have to be replaced.


  • Basic-quality armor and shields:
    • Will be made out of basic-quality materials by someone with Novice craft skills. Armor and shields are plain, unadorned, and tend to need careful upkeep lest they have to be replaced.


  • Average-quality armor and shields:
    • Will be made out of average-quality materials by someone with Competent craft skills. Armor and shields are usually plain with minimal adornments. They require less-careful upkeep and unless they are damaged severely, will not need to be replaced.


  • Good-quality armor and shields:
    • Will be made out of well-made materials by someone with Expert craft skills. Armor and shields have some detail and adornments. They still require upkeep, but unless they are damaged quite severely, they will not need to be replaced.


  • Masterwork-quality armor and shields:
    • Will be made out of high-quality materials by someone with Master or Grandmaster craft skills. Armor and shields have as many details and adornments as are wanted. They still require upkeep, but masterwork-quality armor and shields are of such high quality and such excellent craftsmanship that they are rarely damaged severely, which means that they will hardly ever need to be replaced.


Please note that adornments at any Tier may include inset gemstones or added jewelry, coloring, filigree or gilding of precious or high-quality metals, embossing or engraving, etc.


Because in this section (the Armor Section of the Shoppe) you are able to access items which are limited in number, modified, or are otherwise unusual, you are required to keep a record of any unusual items in your CS. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Tier Access


Due to the items available, different Tiers have different types and qualities of armor and shields. This means that at many Tiers, the armors and shields available are, by default, not of average quality. One Tier, for example, might offer good-quality Tier 6 armor while also offering basic-quality Tier 8 armor.

Going up the Tier System, you may access items from the Tiers below you. This means that you may access armor and shields that are different in type or that are worse in quality than those that are offered to you, if you so please.

You may choose to have lower-Tier armor and shielding *instead* of the items offered to you at your own Wealth Tier. Making alterations in this way does not change how many sets of armor and shields you are due by your Tier. Tier 10 will still be able to choose 3 full sets of armor and 3 shields, for example.

At Tier 6:
Tier 3 armor and shields are available at masterwork quality,
or
You may choose from the rest of your Tier 6 options.
At Tier 7:
Tier 3 armor and shields are available at masterwork quality,
or
Tier 4 armor and shields are available at masterwork quality,
or
You may choose from the rest of your Tier 7 options.
At Tier 10, this means that:
Tier 3 armor and shields are available at masterwork quality,
or
Tier 4 armor and shields are available at masterwork quality,
or
Tier 6 armor and shields are available at masterwork quality,
or
You may choose from the rest of your Tier 10 options.

Please note that this only applies to *accessing* armor and shields that are available to you through your Wealth Tier. You may still *purchase* armor and shields at any Tier level using your Wealth Points.

Please also note that while the higher Tiers have access to more and better items, it is up to each individual player, as long as their Wealth Tier allows, to decide whether they would rather wear plate armor or leather.

Additionally, when going up and down in the Tier System, PCs are allowed to keep the items they recieved from Wealth Tiers prior.

Making Modifications to Armor & Shields


You have the ability to customize your armor and shields, usually by having them made out of specific types of metal. For that process, see Metals. Please note that leather armor and studded leather armor do not contain enough metal to warrant such modifications.

Please also note that the Metals Section of the Shoppe is not exhaustive. Check the Creating the World Forum, the Standing Trials wiki, or submit your own metal (also in the Creating the World Forum) for other possible types of metal.

Unless you choose to customize your armor, all types of armor (minus leather) are made of iron. All types of shields, when made of metal, are also, by default, made of iron.

Armor & Shields by Tier
Wealth Tier Armor or Shield Notes
Tier 3 Leather Armor Leather armor typically consists of hardened animal hides, and is most commonly found on hunters or rangers. It is a lightweight type of armor that will provide some protection from heavy blows and from cuts or slashes, through it may be easily pierced.
Tier 3 Tier 3 Shields Tier 3 shields encompass any of a group of wielded wooden implements which are used to deflect or stop missiles or to lessen the intensity of incoming blows. The weight and general durability of a shield depends greatly on the material used to manufacture it. Tier 3 shields are mostly made of wood, though may also include some leather.
line 1
line 2
Tier 4 Studded Leather Armor Studded leather armor is made of hardened animal hides with metal studs placed at even intervals along the length and width. These studs give added durability, but come with a light addition of weight. Studded leather armor will protect better than plain leather armor against cutting and slashing, as well as piercing weapons.
Tier 4 Tier 4 Shields Tier 4 shields are any of a group of wielded wooden implements which are used to deflect or stop missiles or to lessen the intensity of incoming blows. The weight and general durability of a shield depends greatly on the material used to manufacture it. Tier 4 shields are mostly made of better-quality wood, though may also include some leather.
line 1
line 2
Tier 6 Chainmail Armor Chainmail armor is made of intertwined links of metal which drape the body. The metallic rings used in chainmail are capable of deflecting many blades, and even weaker projectiles, though those with especially small points will be able to slip between the rings.
Tier 6 Scalemail Armor Scalemail armor is composed of overlapping layers of metal which drape the body. While this suffers from an added level of weight in comparison to chainmail, it is nevertheless lighter than plate armor, and provides fair protection against most common forms of bludgeoning, slashing, or piercing damage.
Tier 6 Tier 6 Shields Tier 6 shields are any of a group of wielded wooden or leather implements which are used to deflect or stop missiles or to lessen the intensity of incoming blows. The weight and general durability of a shield depends greatly on the material used to manufacture it. Tier 6 shields are mostly made of the best-quality wood, and may heavily incoporate leather, as well as some metal.
line 1
line 2
Tier 8 Plate Armor Full sheets of metal comprise this suit of knightly armor, granting it a level of unmatched durability in combat. Few weapons are capable of piercing the tough exterior of plate armor, though the joints are typically exposed to allow for ease-of-movement. This is easily the most expensive and weightiest form of available armor.
Tier 8 Tier 8 Shields Tier 8 shields are any of a group of wielded wooden, leather, or metal implements which are used to deflect or stop missiles or to lessen the intensity of incoming blows. The weight and general durability of a shield depends greatly on the material used to manufacture it. Tier 8 shields are mostly made of high-quality materials, and may favor wood, leather, metal, or a combination of all three heavily in their design.

Weapon Quality


Please keep in mind that, like with armor and shielding, the style of your weaponry depends on the smith who has crafted it. The same way that different fine artists approach painting or sculpting in different ways, each smith has their own method of artistry, their own style and technique. One person's battle axe might look very different from another's. Weaponry, by no means, has to be uniform.

That being said, there are certain standards when it comes to the quality of your weapons.

  • Poor-quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of very cheap materials by someone with no or very limited craft skills. Weapons are plain, unadorned, and are likely to need very careful upkeep lest they have to be replaced. These weapons are of very poor quality, and represent below-average standards when it comes to craftsmanship at this level.


  • Poor+ quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of cheap materials by someone with no or very limited craft skills. Weapons are plain, unadorned, and are likely to need very careful upkeep lest they have to be replaced. Despite this, these weapons represent above-average standards when it comes to craftsmanship at this level. Simply put, poor+ quality weapons are of better stock than poor weapons. In battle, a poor+ quality weapon might break a poor-quality weapon, especially one that has not been properly kept.


  • Basic-quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of basic-quality materials by someone with Novice craft skills. Weapons are plain, unadorned, and tend to need careful upkeep lest they have to be replaced. These weapons are of very basic quality, and represent below-average standards when it comes to craftsmanship at Novice level.


  • Basic+ quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of basic+ materials by someone with Novice craft skills. Weapons are plain, unadorned, and tend to need careful upkeep lest they have to be replaced. Despite this, these weapons represent above-average standards when it comes to craftsmanship at Novice level. Simply put, basic+ quality weapons are of better stock than basic weapons. In battle, a basic+ quality weapon might break a basic-quality weapon, especially one that has not been properly kept.


  • Average-quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of average-quality materials by someone with Competent craft skills. Weapons are usually plain with minimal adornments. They require less-careful upkeep and unless they are damaged severely, will not need to be replaced.


  • Average+ quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of average+ materials by someone with Competent craft skills. Weapons are usually plain with minimal adornments. They require less-careful upkeep and unless they are damaged severely, will not need to be replaced. Average+ weapons represent above-average standards when it comes to craftsmanship at Competent level. Simply put, average+ quality weapons are of better stock than average weapons. In battle, an average+ quality weapon might break an average-quality weapon, though one weapon breaking another at this level is relatively rare.


  • Good-quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of well-made materials by someone with Expert craft skills. Weapons have some detail and adornments. They still require upkeep, but unless they are damaged quite severely, they will not need to be replaced.


  • Good+ quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of well-made materials by someone with Expert craft skills. Weapons have some detail and adornments. They still require upkeep, but unless they are damaged quite severely, they will not need to be replaced. Good+ weapons represent above-average standards when it comes to craftsmanship at Expert level. Simply put, good+ quality weapons are of better stock than good weapons. In battle, a good+ quality weapon might break a good-quality weapon, though one weapon breaking another at this level is considerably rare.


  • Masterwork-quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of high-quality materials by someone with Master craft skills. Weapons have as many details and adornments as are wanted. They still require upkeep, but masterwork-quality weapons are of such high quality and such excellent craftsmanship that they are rarely damaged severely, which means that they will hardly ever need to be replaced.


  • Masterwork+ quality weapons:
    • Will be made out of high-quality materials by someone with Master or Grandmaster craft skills. Weapons have as many details and adornments as are wanted. They still require upkeep, but masterwork+ quality weapons are of such high quality and such excellent craftsmanship that they are rarely damaged severely, which means that they will hardly ever need to be replaced. Masterwork+ weapons represent above-average standards when it comes to craftsmanship at Master or even Grandmaster level. Simply put, masterwork+ quality weapons are of the best stock possible, better even than masterwork weapons. In battle, a masterwork+ quality weapon might break a masterwork-quality weapon, though at this level one weapon breaking another is exceedingly rare.


Please note that adornments at any Tier may include inset gemstones or added coloring, filigree or gilding of precious or high-quality metals, inlay or engraving, pattern welding, etc.


Because in this section (the Weapons Section of the Shoppe) you are able to access items which are limited in number, modified, or are otherwise unusual, you are required to keep a record of any unusual items in your CS. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Tier Access


Due to the items available, different Tiers have different qualities of weaponry (Tier 1 is poor, Tier 2 is poor+, Tier 3 is basic, etc.). Going up the Tier System, you may access items from the Tiers below you. This means that you may access weapons that are worse in quality than those that are offered to you, if you so please.

You may choose to have lower-Tier weapons *instead* of the weapons offered to you at your own Wealth Tier. Making alterations in this way does not change how many weapons or sets of weapons you are due by your Tier. Tier 9 and Tier 10 will still be able to choose 4 weapons or sets of weapons, for example.

At Tier 6:
Poor, poor+, basic, basic+, and average weapons are available,
or
You may choose your default Tier 6 option (average+ quality).

Please note that this only applies to *accessing* weapons that is available to you through your Wealth Tier. You may still *purchase* weapons at any Tier level using your Wealth Points.

Please also note that while the higher Tiers have access to more and better items, it is up to each individual player, as long as their Wealth Tier allows, to decide whether they would rather use a sword or crossbow at either poor or high quality.

Additionally, when going up and down in the Tier System, PCs are allowed to keep the items they recieved from Wealth Tiers prior.

Making Modifications to Weaponry


You have the ability to customize your weapons, usually by having them made out of specific types of metal. For that process, see Metals. Please note that the Metals Section of the Shoppe is not exhaustive. Check the Creating the World Forum, the Standing Trials wiki, or submit your own metal (also in the Creating the World Forum) for other possible types of metal.

Unless you choose to customize your weapons, all types of weaponry, unless they require other materials in their construction, are made of iron, leather, and wood.

Weaponry by Category


If you do not see the type of weapon you would like to purchase on the lists below, please be aware that these lists are just approximates. Most if not all types and styles of weaponry are welcome on Standing Trials, as long as they adhere to the setting. If you are uncertain whether the type of weapon you wish to use is allowed in the setting of Standing Trials, or if you are otherwise uncertain as to which category of weapon it would fit into, contact a Prophet or ask in the Questions and Answers Forum.

When choosing a weapon not on the lists below, please purchase by approximate. Find the weapon closest in type to the weapon you wish to choose, and purchase your weapon as if you were purchasing that one instead. If the type of weapon closest to the weapon you wish to choose is available to be purchased in sets of more than one, assume that your weapon, too, is allowed this.

Metals

Rules For This Section.

Please refer to the tables below (see Items Available Per Tier.) for the availability of metals per Wealth Tier.

To make modifications to the arms, armor, or mount armor you have purchased, please use the modifiers located in Items Available Per Tier. To determine the final cost of your modified item, take the original cost of the item, found either in the Armor, Weapons, or Mounts sections of the Shoppe, and multiply using the modifier for the type of metal you would like to use.

If you would like to make modifications using an alloy made of two or more metals, use the highest modifier amongst the metals you would like to use.

When applying a modifier, always round *up*.

So, if you purchased an average+ quality longsword for 6 WP, and are modifying your longsword to be made of steel
instead of iron, the cost of your modified longsword would be:

6wp x 1.15 = 6.9wp rounded up to 7wp.

Because in this section (the Metals Section of the Shoppe) you are able to access items which are limited in number, modified, or are otherwise unusual, you are required to keep a record of any unusual items in your CS. There are no exceptions to this rule.


Items Available Per Tier.

For the purposes of modifying arms, armor, and mount armor, metals come in five levels of rarity. The levels of rarity are Commom, Uncommon, Rare, Very Rare, and Priceless. The more rare a certain metal is, the higher its modifier will be.

Please note that certain Priceless metals are typically only given by the gods. This means that as long as a god is willing to grant a Priceless metal to your PC, you may own a Pricless metal even if you are not Tier 10. This also goes for any arms, armor, or mount armor granted by Prophets as rewards for a thread. Such items should be recorded in your CS.

Metal Wealth Tier Rarity Modifier Notes
Idalinium Tier 1 Common x0.75 A common metal, idalinium can be harvested from pretty much anywhere in the world. It appears light grey in color, is very malleable, and is very easy to work with. It is a metal preferred by craftsmen.
Iron Tier 1 Default n/a Iron is often used in the production of inexpensive, durable items like armor and weapons. Iron is also used in a number of furniture pieces, construction, accessory pieces, and many other things. This metal is very dull in appearance, but is likely the most-used metal in the world of Idalos.
Tin Tier 1 Common x0.75 Cheaper and more malleable than either bronze or copper, tin is often used for flatware, as it it has long been determined to be a safe and nontoxic metal to eat off of. Tin is also sometimes used in jewelry. Despite its relative insignificance as a metal, tin is significant for its combination with copper, as a second metal added to copper hardens the copper and lowers its melting temperature. Tin and copper together create bronze. Tin is sometimes also used in combination with lead to create solder, an alloy of scientific and alchemic interest.
extra line here
extra line here
Copper Tier 2 Common x1.05 Highly conductive to electricity, relatively cheap and malleable, copper is a go-to for basic tools and implements and, like solder, is of interest to scientists and alchemists.
Crystalline Tier 2 Common x1.05 Crystalline is an ore with strange properties, though it is common compared to geminite. Crystalline can be found in caves, caverns, and pretty much anywhere dark and cold. It appears in many colors ranging from shades of pale green and purple to cream and, rarely, white. Crystalline can be transparent, depending on craftsmanship, but must be incorporated with other metals. Its durability is weaker than iron and in most cases, it serves better in jewelry and accessories. However, if fashioned with other metals, crystalline can appear mesmerizing to the eye.
Lead Tier 2 Common x1.05 Lead is an exceptionally heavy and fairly durable metal.
extra line here
extra line here
extra line here
Bronze Tier 3 Common x1.1 Relatively cheap and malleable, bronze stands alongside copper as a go-to for basic tools and implements, and may even be forged into armament.
extra line here
extra line here
Cobalt Tier 4 Common x1.15 Cobalt metal is very sleek and shiny, appearing black, grey, or dark brown in color. Cobalt is a better form of metal preferred by armor and weapon crafters. Easy to work into shape and pleasant in appearance, cobalt metal is most commonly used within militaries across Idalos not only for its beauty, but for its price and durability.
Steel Tier 4 Common x1.15 Steel is a higher-grade metal used in the making of armor and weapons. Though it is a metal that is better suited for use in combat, it is not indestructible. Still, its durability is better than iron. Steel appears shiny compared to iron, but runs the risk of rusting and/or tarnishing, especially on long journeys.
extra line here
extra line here
Embersteel Tier 5 Common x1.2 Embersteel is a metal compound that contains hints of metals which give it a smoldering appearance when worked over and set. Surprisingly, embersteel is stronger than steel; however, it weighs much more than cobalt, iron, or steel, making it unfavorable to most.
extra line here
extra line here
Blood Metal Tier 6 Uncommon x1.25 Blood metal appears deep black with a reddish tint, and can be found near volcanoes, both active or inactive. It is a very light weight, malleable metal, often used in sheets as a lining to reinforce armor. Relatively common and fairly priced, blood metal tends to take on the coloration of other metals, if combined with them into alloys.
Silver Tier 6 Uncommon x1.25 Silver is a shiny metal valued for its beauty. It is most commonly used in jewelry, and is not typically found in non-decorative implements.
extra line here
extra line here
Gold Tier 7 Uncommon x1.3 Gold is another shiny metal valued for its beauty. It is an incredibly soft metal, and thus a poor choice for any weapon or armor.
Minithelite Tier 7 Uncommon x1.3 Minithelite is an uncommon metal produced from the bottom of the oceans. It is often worn by the Mer and contains compounds that allow the metal to blend into different locations, no matter the environment. However, minithelite is very soft, light weight, and breakable. Because of this, the metal is often used by tailors to craft items of concealment.
extra line here
extra line here
Adamantite Tier 8 Rare x1.35 Adamantite is a rare metal, harvested in remote locations around mountains, specifically around Sirothelle. Adamantite is said to hold special properties that allow it to slice through even the sharpest, strongest of materials. However, this effect is dependent on the level of craftsmanship put into the metal. This metal can yield strong, sharp blades or dull, breakable ones. Adamantite is mainly used for weapons, though it is malleable and can be used for armor as well. This metal appears as a burgundy color when finished.
Grave Gold Tier 8 Rare x1.35 Grave gold is found in locations where many or great deaths have taken place. A common-to-strong metal when it comes to durability, grave gold's biggest draw is its ability to alter color when exposed to blood. As such, grave gold is often made into weapons rather than armor. Though starting out pure white, silver, or light gold in color, the more blood exposed to the metal, the darker and redder it will become. The darkest weapons made of grave gold are wielded by Master or Grandmaster warriors, who display the deep black-red color of their weapon as a warning to all. Because grave gold absorbs blood it is, essentially, resistant to water damage or rust. This makes for a pretty weapon that can vary in shades of color, and which never tarnishes or loses its mirror-like shine.
Faldrunium Tier 8 Rare x1.35 Faldrunium earned its name for the metal's propensity to radiate heat. In optimal conditions, such as in areas of hot climate, weapons made from faldrunium may quickly reach temperatures of up to 600 degrees Celsius (1112 degrees Fahrenheit), giving the weapons a red-hot glow. Unlike conventional metals, the hotter faldrunium becomes the harder it becomes; but the reverse is also true. In cold climates, especially when temperatures reach -15 degrees Celsius (5 degrees Fahrenheit), faldrunium will begin to soften until it becomes unusable. If exposed to cold temperatures for too long, faldrunium weapons will lose their shape entirely. Faldrunium is a difficult metal to work with and a dangerous metal to use. It is advised that special sheaths or containers made to seal out both heat and cold be used to carry faldrunium weapons. No one in the history of Idalos has dared use this metal in armor, as in hot temperatures it would quickly burn them to ash.
Tienite Tier 8 Rare x1.35 Tienite is known by another name: glacier ore. Tienite is only found in the most remote of places, one being Oscillus. It is rumored that Treid's living body affects the land around him, thus giving the metal an ethereal radiance of blue and white. Even after smelting down the ore, tienite still radiates the same ethereal colors, causing anyone who wears the metal to appear surreal and divine. Tienite is as durable as embersteel, but unlike embersteel is light weight and easily worked. However, due to its rarity within the other regions of Idalos, this ore is priced at an exuberant amount.
extra line here
extra line here
Geminite Tier 9 Very Rare x1.4 Geminite is a type of ore found deep within mountains. Appearing as a cross between diamond and glass, geminite seems like liquid water, transparent and smooth, when being forged into items. This metal is highly durable and is easily combined with other metals. When incorporated with other metals, geminite takes on the color of the metals it is combined with, while still keeping its glassy appearance. Geminite makes for a lovely fashion piece.
Ghost Metal Tier 9 Very Rare x1.4 Ghost metal is found in areas of highly-active ghostly activity. Tangible to both the living and the dead, ghost metal bolsters the strength of souls, which means that ghosts tend to be drawn to it. A person who uses ghost metal is likely to experience paranormal events, though the metal will not give them the ability to perceive ghosts, nor to truly interact with them. Ghost metal is a fairly light-weight metal with a purplish glow. Items made from ghost metal tend to look ghostly in nature because of the metal's proclivity to give off a lingering mist.
Sorelian Steel Tier 9 Very Rare x1.4 Sorelian steel is a metal much more resiliant than iron, steel, cobalt, or even embersteel. Sorelian steel's unique durability is attributed to its ability to suffuse the impact of blows. Strikes that might severely damage other types of metal merely leave dents, scrapes, or small punctures in armor made of sorelian steel. However, because of these same properties, it is not a good metal for weaponry. A handsome metal though not as eye-catching as some, once crafted and polished, sorelian steel glimmers with a soft blue finish.
extra line here
extra line here
Corvantite Tier 10 Priceless x1.65 Corvantite is a special metal only obtained through circumstances which involve the Immortals. Corvantite is a metal that, even after it is fashioned into items, appears to have captured the wind. Beneath the surface of the metal, celestial colors are in constant motion. Not much is known of this metal, only that it is rarely seen except on the Champions of the Immortals.

Corvantite requires PSF approval.
Euvomine Tier 10 Priceless x1.65 Euvomine is another metal only given from the Immortals. Euvomine, by nature, is very brittle and easily broken. It is not meant to be hammered into armor but rather sprinkled upon it. This metal is able to fuse on contact with other metals without staining or discoloring them in any way. Each gift of Euvomine has special properties only known by the Immortal who gifted it.

Euvomine requires PSF approval.
Malorite Tier 9 Very Rare x1.45 Malorite is also known as star metal in Idalos. Star metal is hard to come by, often found in the most unlikely of places. It is very hard to craft into strong armor because of its rarity; however, when crafted properly it is known to withstand the sharpest of blades. Malorite, when refined from ore, appears to glisten as if giving off its own light. Translucent and seemingly starlit, malorite is coveted by many.

Mounts

Rules For This Section.

Mount Quality


The overall quality of a mount is based on a combination of two factors. These two factors are the condition of the mount and its level of training.

The condition of the mount refers to the breeding of the animal and how well it has been cared for prior to being purchased. There are five levels of mount condition. These five levels are poor, basic, average, good, and excellent. For more information on mount condition, see Mount Condition & Training.

The level of training of the mount refers to how well the animal has been trained. There are five levels of mount training. These five levels are poor, basic, average, good, and excellent. For more information on mount training, see Mount Condition & Training.

  • Poor-quality mounts:
    • Will be of poor condition, bred and raised by someone with no or very limited skill in Animal Husbandry. Poor-quality mounts will also have poor training, trained by someone with no or very limited skill in Animal Training.


  • Poor+ quality mounts:
    • Will be of poor condition, bred and raised by someone with no or very limited skill in Animal Husbandry. However, poor+ quality mounts will have basic training, trained by someone with Novice-level skill in Animal Training.

  • Basic-quality mounts:
    • Will be of basic condition, bred and raised by someone with Novice-level skill in Animal Husbandry. Basic-quality mounts will also have basic training, trained by someone with Novice-level skill in Animal Training.


  • Basic+ quality mounts:
    • Will be of basic condition, bred and raised by someone with Novice-level skill in Animal Husbandry. However, basic+ quality mounts will have average training, trained by someone with Competent-level skill in Animal Training.
      or
    • Will be of average condition, bred and raised by someone with Competent-level skill in Animal Husbandry. However, basic+ quality mounts will still have basic training, trained by someone with Novice-level skill in Animal Training.

    • Will be of average condition, bred and raised by someone with Competent-level skill in Animal Husbandry. Average-quality mounts will also have average training, trained by someone with Competent-level skill in Animal Training.


  • Average+ quality mounts:
    • Will be of average condition, bred and raised by someone with Competent-level skill in Animal Husbandry. However, average+ quality mounts will have good training, trained by someone with Expert-level skill in Animal Training.
      or
    • Will be of good condition, bred and raised by someone with Expert-level skill in Animal Husbandry. However, average+ quality mounts will still have average training, trained by someone with Competent-level skill in Animal Training.

    • Will be of good condition, bred and raised by someone with Expert-level skill in Animal Husbandry. Good-quality mounts will also have good training, trained by someone with Expert-level skill in Animal Training.


  • Good+ quality mounts:
    • Will be of good condition, bred and raised by someone with Expert-level skill in Animal Husbandry. However, good+ quality mounts will have excellent training, trained by someone with Master-level skill in Animal Training.
      or
    • Will be of excellent condition, bred and raised by someone with Master-level skill in Animal Husbandry. However, good+ quality mounts will still have good training, trained by someone with Expert-level skill in Animal Training.


  • Excellent-quality mounts:
    • Will be of excellent condition, bred and raised by someone with Master-level skill in Animal Husbandry. Excellent-quality mounts will also have excellent training, trained by someone with Master-level skill in Animal Training. Despite being of excellent condition and training, excellent-quality mounts represent below-average standards when it comes to Husbandry and Training at Master level.


  • Excellent+ quality mounts:
    • Will be of excellent condition, bred and raised by someone with Master- or Grandmaster-level skill in Animal Husbandry. Excellent+ quality mounts will also have excellent training, trained by someone with Master- or Grandmaster-level skill in Animal Training. Excellent+ quality mounts represent above-average standards when it comes to Husbandry and Training at Master or even Grandmaster level. Simply put, excellent+ quality mounts are of the best stock possible, better even than excellent mounts. In a competition between an excellent-quality mount and one that is excellent+, the excellent+ mount would win every time.


Purchasing Mount Armor


You may make these purchases as many times as you wish, as long as you have the Wealth Points to afford it.

For the purposes of purchasing mount armor, a set of mount armor includes any number of separate pieces of barding which, altogether, would compose a full set. To see examples of mount armor, see Items Available Per Tier.

For descriptions of the qualities of any type of armor (including mount armor), see the Armor Section of the Shoppe.

To make modifications to your mount armor by altering the type of metal it is made of, see Metals.

Purchasing Accessories

For the purposes of purchasing additional accessories for your mount, you may purchase a full set of new accessories for 1 Wealth Point. These additional accessories will be of masterwork+ quality. Accessories do not include mount armor.


Because in this section (the Mounts Section of the Shoppe) you are able to access items which are limited in number, modified, or are otherwise unusual, you are required to keep a record of any unusual items in your CS. There are no exceptions to this rule.


Items Available Per Tier.

Tier Restrictions


Please note that there are Exotic and Non-Exotic mounts. Exotic and Non-Exotic mounts cannot easily be classified in the Shoppe, which caters to all of Idalos. Because of this, the difference between an Exotic and Non-Exotic mount is determined on a city by city basis. While horses are considered globally Non-Exotic, please see your City Lore, or contact your City Prophet, if you have another, specific mount in mind.

Tier 1 - Tier 4 do not have access to Exotic mounts unless approved in the PSF or awarded by a Prophet. Tier 5 - Tier 10 do have access to Exotic mounts, though many of the Tiers must still buy an Exotic mount with Wealth Points in order to own one.

Please note that PCs may purchase additional mounts using their Wealth Points.

All mounts, whether purchased or accessed through your Wealth Tier, come with appropriate mount accessories.

Tier Access


Due to the items available, different Tiers have different qualities of mounts (Tier 5 is average, Tier 6 is average+, Tier 7 is good, etc.). Going up the Tier System, you may access items from the Tiers below you. This means that you may access mounts that are worse in quality than those that are offered to you, if you so please.

You may choose to have poorer-quality mounts *instead* of the mounts offered to you at your own Wealth Tier. Making alterations in this way does not change how many mounts you are due by your Tier. Tier 5 - Tier 10 will still be able to choose 1 mount per arc, for example.

So, at Tier 8:

Mount Condition & Training

Please refer to the information below for more detail on the five levels (poor, basic, average, good, and excellent) of mount condition and training.

Levels of Condition


  • Mounts of poor condition will not have a pedigree, and will have only been cared for poorly before purchasing. Usually their care will include feeding the animal.


  • Mounts of basic condition will not have a pedigree, and will have only had their most basic needs cared for before purchasing. Usually their care will include feeding the animal and keeping them relatively clean.


  • Mounts of average condition will not have a pedigree, and will have been cared for adequately before purchasing. Usually their care will include feeding the animal, keeping them clean, and keeping them in agreeable environs of average quality.


  • Mounts of good condition will have a pedigree on one side of their breeding, and will have been well-cared-for before purchasing. Usually their care will include feeding the animal and giving them supplements, keeping them clean and well-groomed, and keeping them in good environs which are cleaned often and which are suitable to the animal in question. Animals will also be given medical care when necessary.


  • Mounts of excellent condition will have a pedigree on both sides of their breeding, and will have been given the best care possible before purchasing. Usually their care will include feeding the animal the best diet available as well as giving them supplements, keeping them clean and excellently-groomed, and keeping them in good environs which are cleaned often, spacious, and suitable to the animal in question. Mounts of excellent condition will be given the best medical care, and will usually also be given enrichment to keep them from becoming depressed or bored.


Levels of Training


  • Mounts of poor training will not have any training, or if they do have training they will have been trained poorly. Training, if present, is irregular, which makes it difficult for the animal to learn. Training may include teaching the animal to accept being around people and to accept equipment.


  • Mounts of basic training will have been trained to accept being around people, to accept equipment, and to agree to being ridden. Mounts with this level of training will be not extremely used to being ridden, and may resist riding or be misbehaved or headstrong.


  • Mounts of average training will have been trained to accept being around people and other animals, to accept equipment, and to agree to being ridden. Mounts with this level of training will be relatively good at being ridden, though they may still spook or misbehave on occasion.


  • Mounts of good training will have been trained to accept being around people and other animals, to accept equipment, to agree to being ridden, and to accept medical care without fuss when it is needed. Mounts with this level of training will be good at being ridden, though whether or not they always follow directions depends on their individual temperament. When being checked by a veterinarian, the animal will not usually resist and will usually be compliant when given medicines or other treatments.


  • Mounts of excellent training will have been trained to accept being around people and other animals, to accept equipment, to agree to being ridden, and to accept medical care without fuss. They will also be trained in certain tricks or specialties. Mounts with this level of training will be excellent at being ridden, though whether or not they always follow directions will still depend on their individual temperament. When being checked by a veterinarian, the animal will not usually resist and will usually be compliant when given medicines or other treatments. Additionally, mounts may be able to perform spectacular leaps or tricks, ride into battle without scaring, or perform any number of other advanced duties.

You may choose to have lower-Tier vessels *instead* of the vessels offered to you at your own Wealth Tier.

So, at Tier 6:
Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4, and Tier 5 vessels are available,
or
You may choose your default Tier 6 option.

Please note that this only applies to *accessing* vessels that are available to you through your Wealth Tier. You may still *purchase* vessels using your Wealth Points.

Additionally, when going up and down in the Tier System, PCs are allowed to keep the items they recieved from Wealth Tiers prior.

Vessels by Tier
extra line here
For All PCs
Wealth Tier Vessel Number of Crew Number of Passengers Notes
Tier 2 Canoe / Dugout 1 None Usually pointed at both ends, this lightweight, narrow vessel is propelled by a single seated or kneeling paddler facing in the direction they wish to travel. Characters use canoes for recreational sports, leisure fishing, exploring caves, and crossing small lakes or rivers. Also referred to as a dugout, canoes can be crafted from tree logs by Novice shipwrights.

Canoes come in sets of 4.
Tier 3 Rowboat 1 Up to 3 A rowboat is boat that is propelled forward by one or more individuals using oars. The oars of the boat are attached to it through open metal rings called horns, which are fixed to either side of the boat via an oarlock. Rowboats are used on lakes, rivers, and to transport people or goods to bigger boats anchored near the shoreline. Some characters might choose to use a rowboat for recreational fishing.

Rowboats come in sets of 3.
Tier 3 Fishing Boat / Longboat 1 Up to 6 The humble fishing boat is used much like the rowboat, but can carry up to six grown men, and has enough room to bait and set hooks or traps for crayfish and crabs. Unlike the rowboat, people are able to stand up in this vessel without it tipping over. Many larger boats keep a couple of these smaller vessels for going between their ship and the shore, or for exploring unchartered waters to evaluate the water depth and safety. When used in this capacity, a fishing boat is often called a longboat.

Longboats come in sets of 2.
Tier 4 Sloop 1 Up to 4 Used primarily for sailing along coastlines or up rivers though capable of sea travel, a sloop is a single-masted, fore-and-aft rigged vessel. It has one large mainsail and a smaller headsail aft of the mast.

Sloops come in sets of 1.
line 1
line 2
Tier 5 Ketch 2 Up to 10 A ketch is bigger than a sloop, with two masts instead of one. On this type of ship, the forward mainmast is always larger than the aftermast. Ketches are commonly used as a freighter or larger fishing vessel, and much like the sloop are most commonly used for following coastlines or island hopping, though sea travel is still fully possible.

Ketches come in sets of 2.
Tier 5 Keelboat 4 Up to 20 A large, flat-bottomed, river-cargo ferryboat with shallow structural keels, these boats are primarily used on big rivers or lakes for transporting people or cargo such as logs, horses, crops, materials, or wagons. Usually long and narrow, the keelboat is often unsheltered and is treated as a barge. The keelboat is perfect for navigating shallow waters that other boats can’t move through.

Keelboats come in sets of 2.
Tier 6 Longship 21 - 41 Up to 45 These graceful ships have a shallow draft which allows for navigation in water only four feet (1.2 meters) deep. Because of this, longships can land on sandy beaches without taking damage. Being double-ended means that they can reverse with ease and change direction quickly, making them perfect for sailing in cold waters where icebergs and sea ice becomes a problem. Oars are fitted along the length of the boat and the boat has a single mast and large, square sail.

Longships come in sets of 1.
Tier 6 Schooner 2 - 6 Up to 10 A schooner is a vessel with two or more masts with fore and aft sails. This type of ship will get a character from one continent to the next, but in unsafe waters it is a risky choice for long-distance travel. Schooners are fast, enabling them to outrun and outmaneuver some of the bigger ships on the ocean, including the cog ship, a favourite among pirates.

Schooners come in sets of 1.
line 1
line 2
Tier 7 Cog Ship 10 Up to 50 A single-masted vessel with a square-rigged single sail, the cog is used namely for seagoing trade and long-distance journeys. Cog ships can carry and transport a large volume of goods, which make them very popular among pirates and other ne'er-do-wells, who like to use them for carrying all of their treasures wherever they go. They are also used by navies to transport prisoners in custom cells built under the main deck.

Cog ships come in sets of 2.
Tier 8 Brig 12 - 16 Up to 60 A large vessel with two square-rigged masts, brigs are known to be fast and maneuverable, making them the perfect warship or merchant vessel. Often equipped with many cannons (up to ten on each side), pirates tend to steer clear of these naval ships, which are popular in the Northern and Western regions of Idalos in cities such as Rynmere and Ne’haer.

Brigs come in sets of 2.
Tier 9 Galleon 30 Up to 350 A large warship, the galleon is a lot slower than the brig, but also very popular among pirates and wealthy merchants for its large cargo storage. Twice as fast as the cog (if it isn’t overloaded with loot), and a lot more maneuverable, the galleon is able to stand rough sea storms and the odd hole from cannon fire.

Galleons come in sets of 1.
Tier 10 Tallship 60 Up to 220 A tallship is a square-rigged vessel often referred to as a full-rigged ship, collier, or frigate. The masts include a foremast (second tallest), mainmast (the tallest), mizzenmast (third tallest), and a jiggermast (the shortest mast if present). The tallship has a minimum of twenty sails and is very demanding of its crew.

Tallships come in sets of 1.

Property & Land

Rules For This Section.

Please refer to the Wealth Tiers page for availability of housing per Wealth Tier.

This section, the Property & Land Section of the Shoppe, deals with the additional purchase of land and/or property.

Starting and Additional Property


As outlined on the Wealth Tiers page of the wiki, each PC who starts with access to housing may begin with one property and one property only. Some PCs, depending on their Wealth Tier and Starter Pack, will not have access to housing or will have access to alternative housing, such as a tent, wagon, or ship. Please note that housing does not, necessarily, have to be traditional. Housing may include any type of shelter, as long as it is appropriate to your Wealth Tier or below.

Any additional property or land you wish to own must be purchased using Wealth Points. Many cities have a Housing Office located in the OOC section of their city forum, which includes a variety of pre-made houses and the individual cost of each. You may apply for additional property there.

If there is no Housing Office available in your city, review the costs of property and land in this section, and contact your City Prophet to work out the specifics of the items you would like to purchase. Purchasing any Tier of property or land requires approval from your City Prophet. If you and your Prophet cannot reach an agreement as to your purchase's Tier, cost, or location, your request may be posted to the Prophet Support Forum for further discussion.
