I really would like this game to have weapons that you forge instead of craft or find. Generally you'd just craft it at a sword station with a mold, and the iron. It would take some time and depending on the mold, iron, and random luck, you'd get a good or bad sword. A good sword might do more damage or be more durable, but i kinda would like it that some swords might break if they're not of good quality.
Also there could be some sort of hidden skill modifier, so if you make a lot of swords they're going to be better. I do like how rising world is suppose to be similar to real life, er well more than some games, and i don't think i'd be good to show people their skills, but i think i'd be nice for them to know they exist. Also possible one for cutting down trees or mining, and the more you mine the faster you mine.
The whole point is realistically if you were mining for a while you'd be better at mining.
Ok and last thing, a lot of this was me just slapping down ideas so a lot of that's going to sound very jumbled, i can clarify it if anyone asks.
