A robust crafting system should be at the core of the game. This will involve a process of gathering raw materials, refining them, and ultimately crafting finished items.
In fitting with the magic-tech theme, the system centers around the basic concept of making items and then adding enchantments. In some cases these are then combined with other items. Ultimately the players should be able to make anything from weapons/armor to buildings and vehicles.
In keeping with the Lateral Expansion concepts, crafting is an ongoing pursuit nearly everyone will need to engage in at some point or another.
