Value

The value of an object isn’t something intrinsic to the thing, as different places and cultures place different values in things.

It’s easiest to describe the different levels of wealth by about how much labor such a thing entails:

However, the value of something is not always just the labor put into it: something particularly scarce or of high-quality might be more valuable, for example.

Broadly speaking, a bundle or collection of things of one value might become, taken as a whole, something of higher value.

Modifiers

Positive modifiers can be added to an item, each increasing the value by one. Most modifiers give you an edge in specific circumstances.

Durable
Ritual: Gives you an edge when used as part of rituals, or when used with or against the undying and the spirits of the land.
Ancient: This object has a story to it. Gives you an edge when used to retell that story.
Sharp
Traditional: Gives you an edge when used among its own kind, or among those with no kind like goblins.

Negative modifiers decrease the value of the object by 1.

Time-worn
Flimsy/Brittle
