Legend

“Never before had the Miner seen a Opal thus colourful, and as he was about to put it into his pocket, a Godly hand was laid at his shoulder to the words, “Can I purchase that good man?””

History

Raw material is a basic material used to produce Resource, Item, Product, or used in its raw state as fuel in various types of energy. Raw materials denote materials in an unprocessed or minimally processed state, such as Iron, Cotton, Water, or any product of agriculture, forestry, and fishing that has been prepared as a marketing commodity or consumption. Raw materials are Harvested from the World by members of the Races.

Areas, or should I say countries, rich in raw materials at times have a poor hard-working working class and a very rich governing or trading class due to the export of said raw materials. These differences among the social classes often lead to unrest, theft, and a hard hand from the rulers, especially in mines and other areas where the raw materials are harvested. It’s also extremely dangerous for the lone harvester or any small band trying their luck and roaming the wild in search of raw materials. These can be raided, robbed, and killed by passing criminals.

Organisation

Raw materials come in many forms, but they can generally be divided into three different groups.

  • Flora-based: vegetables, fruits, flowers, wood, resin, latex, etc.
  • Fauna-based: leather, meat, bones, milk, wool, silk, etc.
  • Mining-based: minerals, metals, crude oil, coal, etc.

Aside from this, raw materials can also be named as two different component types.

  • Primary component: For example, wood is a primary raw material from which furniture like chairs, tables, beds, etc. are made.
  • Secondary components are the materials that supplement crafting. For example, the glue, nails, varnish, etc. used in making wooden furniture.

Special

Each separate raw material harvested has its own internal purity, and when harvested or handled, it can be polluted so that its purity goes down.
