List

We can have two types of items lists:

  • Tibia like list
  • AD&D like list

Tibia is more random, and has more items than AD&D, and you are encourage to upgrade your items, while AD&D abuses a bit of +1,+2. I think that we could try a mix approach perhaps, but i do see ridiculous to see pure AD&D approach like in shield+15 ( that is the difference between a wooden shield and a copper shield )

We have the next items structure:

  • !!Now Alphabetized!!

Potions

  • Healing potion

Food

Food Should heal a small number of hit points. However, not all animals should produce meat, like in Tibia, as it just means everyone slaughters all the animals in the game. Maybe we should have a certain animal, like Deer which when killed produces meat, and can be found in forests etc, so you have to go hunt it. What if there's a chance of everything leaving meat/corpse, but that some types could potentially make the eater ill or even poisoned? And the player would have to cure the meat (requiring materials and time) or else take their chances raw or heated over a fire.

  • Bread
  • Cheese
  • Fruit
    have one class with all the same properties but can make a number of different graphics so it seems like there are lots of types
    • Apple
    • Apricot
    • Banana
    • Blackberry

    • Purchased

    • Castor Bean
    • Potato
    • Tomatoes
  • Mushrooms (see attachments of [1] for graphics)
    • Button mushroom
    • Toadstool (toxic)
    • Many others, so it is harder to learn which ones are toxic

Properties

We have several common attributes for all the items. Mainly:

  • Type (i.e. armour, weapon, etc.)
  • Class (i.e. plate, sword, etc.)
  • Subclass (i.e. full platemail, slashing, etc.)

And some attributes that only some objects have: What is the base standard for points? Higher numbers look more impressive, but lower numbers are easier to manage.

  • Attack
  • Defense
  • Quantity

Additionally items should explain:

  • What slots they can be equipped on
    • Head (helmet, crown/tiara, gloria/halo)
    • Face (fright/protective masks)
    • Amulet/Pendant
    • Weapon Hand
    • Shield Hand (unavaliable in case of a two-handed weapon)
    • Boots
    • Gloves
    • Greaves (leg armour)
    • Rings (2)
    • Cloak
    • Keyring [2] (which can then be put into the bag)
  • How much they weight in kilograms.
  • Tiled id

(Idea suggested by Zuse)

If the item is enchanted it could be time limited so that it runs out of power after some time.

Art

The visual style of all items should have some consistency. Perhaps one person should be responsible for all item design and drawing.
