Resources

Back to Game Mechanics

The world of Sarradar is bountiful in its resources, and the prosperity of the realms relies upon its citizens extracting these resources (see RESOURCE HARVESTING) from the environment so that they may be worked into goods by its craftspeople. In particular, for those seeking to produce high quality tools or weapons, or for those that practice the arcane arts, there exist particular resources that must be sought out and in some cases carefully extracted for the benefit of their unique properties.

Reagents

As the aetheric winds course across the world their magic suffuses certain plants and creatures with a measure of latent power. Certain plants, creatures and types of mineral ore absorb energy from one or more of the aetheric winds and thus when harvested in the right manner, can significantly enhance the ability for a mage, alchemist or smith to harness that stored power and channel it into their works.

Reagents come in many different forms, each imbued by one of the ten Aetheric Winds. While some speak of rare reagents that hold the power of two or more winds, none have yet been proven to exist according to the magical colleges of the Five Realms. Both plant and creature reagents have three grades of potency, Common, Lesser, and Greater. The higher the potency the more resilient and rare the plant or creature tends to be, thus while the alchemical elixirs formed from reagents harvested from them are potent indeed, the acquisition is often a challenge in of itself.

To use these reagents, one must first harvest them, or have someone else do it for them. To obtain a plant or environmental reagent one must be skilled in the art of Foraging, knowing how to recognise a rare reagent, and extract it successfully without destroying it. Likewise, to successfully remove the right part of a creature to use as a reagent, one must be skilled in the art of Hunting.

Ores

It is well known by anyone that works with it that the earth is made up of many different forms of rock and dirt. Some are good for growing crops in, others for building walls and castles. There are also those that once extracted can be purified and worked by a talented smith to forge weapons, armour and other useful tools. There are eight ores in particular that are noted here for their significance.

One talented in the art of Prospecting has the eye to identify whether a vein is valuable or not, and what ore type is present within it. Utilising a pickaxe of similarly suited tool, a prospector can either mine themselves or oversee the mining activity of others. If the right place has been found, it will usually take about ten minutes to extract a suitable quantity of ore, or as little as five minutes if the miner is particularly powerful.

Ore Token Uses
Quartz Quartz.jpg Rarely used for weapons or armour, the significance of quartz lies with its aetherically infused form
Iron Iron.jpg Common in use for everything from household utensils to weapons and ships’ anchors, iron is a durable and useful material.
Silver Silver.jpg Thought seen mostly in adornments and high quality household items, silver has a special use in weapons and armour for use against particular supernatural creatures. Armour crafted primarily of silver protects against poisons and diseases, while weapons made of the substance inflict grievous wounds upon some of the most fearsome of creatures.
Gold Gold.jpg Though poor at protecting against attacks or holding an edge when used to form armour or a weapon, the use of gold in battle is in that armour of it renders the wearer resistant to the effects of damaging magic, while as a weapon a mage can channel their powers through it to be released upon those they strike with it.
Crystal Crystal.jpg Imbued with the element of water from a base material of quartz.
Adamantium Adamantium.jpg Imbued with the element of earth from a base material of iron.
Mithril Mithral.jpg Imbued with the element of air from a base material of silver.
Orichalcum Orichalcum.jpg Imbued with the element of fire from a base material of gold.
