Decay - Achaea Online Help

2.7.1 Decay

(See also: HELP FURNITURE DECAY, HELP CUSTOMISATION)


Almost everything in Achaea decays. It wears out. You'll have it for a while,
and then it will cease to exist.

This is the normal way of things in Achaea.


How Long Do I Have?
-------------------
If you probe an item, you can usually see how many Achaean months longer it is
likely to last. This can be multiple hundreds of Achaean months. Decay
continues whether you are active in the realms or not.


What About Corpses?
-------------------
Corpses also decay, though generally at a very high rate. You cannot generally
tell how long that is, though it is generally measured in terms of fractions of
Achaean days.


Is There Nothing I Can Do?
--------------------------
As a rule, no. Things just decay. You can customise many items, at a cost in
credits, to no longer decay (see HELP CUSTOMISATION). Some items don't decay at
all, such as full plate.
