You know, this gives me an idea. It might be fun to allow access to certain special downtime actions in addition to the normal onws when in specific areas...
Also totally forgot about taking your 'harvest' down to local apothecary!What are you going to do with all those Kurst Hearts and the Essence of Doomblade your Shaggy Bumbo lugged back from The Dark?
Some alchemists, like Merona from Homble, run combo potion shop/bakeries- have some cake and coffee while you wait for your newest batch of bombs!
Perhaps different settlements have different features (kinda like how Torchbearer handles downtime)? For instance, almost every town has an Inn and a Temple, but not every town has a Library or a Spa.
What would like from a downtime rules Ynas?What do you like/don't like?Not sure what Rey's got planned yet, although he did point this out as an influence... http://jrients.blogspot.co.uk/2008/12/party-like-its-999.html
I was thinking that - its also a good way to give smaller towns a distinct feel from larger, cosmopolitan areas.I mean, sure - New Radia has great libraries, shops and even a Chib gambling hall; but good luck finding a quiet field or waterfall to train in.
