General

Various items cannot be bought or found on monsters, but must be manufactured using Craft Skills. As each transformation costs different AP for different alignments, you may find it useful to team up to produce some commodities in larger volumes. The different skills cost different amounts for each alignment. Thus, making a pointy stick (an Air skill -- cutting) is 1AP for Air players, 5AP for Water players (the alignment beaten by Air), and 3AP for Earth and Fire players.

Does this sound right for the cost rule? jmb 21:02, 31 Jan 2006 (GMT)
Every constructional action has an inherent alignment - players of that alignment will expend the fewest AP on the action. For the opposing alignment the cost is five times the basic cost, and for the remaining two alignments the cost is three times the basic cost.

To make an item, try equipping each of the required items in turn. One of them (aka the key object) will give you the option to transform to your desired item (such as bake, spoil, slice, etc). If you do not get the option, you do not have all the required items in your inventory. An increasing number of recipes do not have a key object; any item in the recipe can be held, and the option to make the recipe appears.

The 'king has kindly provided us with an XML document that gives the recipes for making a large amount of items. It's available at [1], though not all of these recipes have been implemented yet.

No, the build.xml file is accurate -- all of the recipes in there can be made. Some may require additional skills, though. Darksatanic 13:36, 6 June 2006 (BST)
Making a White Russian still uses the old recipe, at the moment. PotatoEngineer 08:17, 14 June 2006 (BST)

Volume Discounts

Some crafting recipes become less expensive in terms of AP when many items are made in a batch. Such recipes have a cost multiplier which is applied to the total AP cost once per order of magnitude of items being constructed. For example, if an item has a cost multiplier of .5 and a manufacturing cost of 2AP, then making 1 will cost 2AP, making 10 will cost (20*.5) 10AP, making 100 will cost (200*.5*.5) 50AP, and making 1000 will cost (2000*.5*.5*.5) 250AP. Interestingly enough, if the cost multiplier is less than .3, then the "make 3" option will cost more AP than the "make 10" option.

With a Vodka and Tomato Juice, what else do I need for a Bloody Mary?

There's only so much fleece you'll get off a sheep- when you've exhausted the supply, it'll tell you, so keep a close eye on the messages. I think it grows back given time. --Hotchpotch 20:03, 27 Jan 2006 (GMT)
at this time, when I go after the sheep with the scissors, I get a total of 5 fleece and the last one kills it.
Yeah, hitting sheep with scissors hurts them and the eventually die, but always yield fleece on each hit. (We must be bad with those scissiors, I'm suprised you don't get bloody fleece.--Hamelin 04:58, 7 May 2006 (BST)
