This is a list of all the items we can buy or craft ourselves. For more info about the crafting system, see the Tinker page.

The standard currency is the fathom, the unit of currency created by the Tenebrous Church. Used throughout human territory and generally accepted by other races. Comes in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 250, 500, and 1000. They are retangular with a lip around the edge. The lip is grooved such that the coins can interlock and stack front to back quite securely. The larger denominations are larger in size than the smaller ones and each denomination has a different engraving on the front and back.

(Pierce 4)

Bore Piercer A rifle of absurd size, barely man portable, with built in metal spikes for anchoring. Fires a single solid tungsten shell designed to pierce the heavy armor of Bores and warmachines.

Slave Trap Slavery is common in the underground, usually in the form of generational debt or as punishment for crime.

Life support upgrades Upgrade bore to deal with things like temperature, potentially poisonous gases, and leaks of various kinds more effectively

Armor Bore armor works a lot like normal armor. You can choose to armor specific sections or the whole bore. It would have a rating as to how protective it is and that would come into play if anything hits it.  Cost depends on how strong it is and how much you use.
