The core mechanics -- the Power Cores and the Power Sources -- should be set up with at least a believable fašade of seriousness.
That said, part of the plans for Paxia expansion include putting each clan on even ground in terms of equipment: an armor and a weapon. In addition to that, we will allow each clan to come up with one other piece of equipment of some sort: a spell, a misc, a shield, a pet, even another weapon or armor. The clan members will all vote on the proposals, and the suggestions will be designed and implemented, so each clan gets their one extra item. If you want a cookie or a popcorn misc, a pet of some sort, or whatever -- then that's up to you to propose and your clan members to decide. The sky is the limit on the design of this equipment -- after all, we've wielded harnessed eels.
How does that sound?
Quoted from Westwind from page 2 of the Power core/collectable thread. I'm not proposing we have a vote on this since it's way too early, knowing the staff it may be 6 months or more before they ask us to decide. But coming from a staff member I think it's safe to assume this will be done eventually so we should start thinking about it. Maybe by posting a thread here or on the PF. That way when the vote does come we won't be caught off guard like it just happened with the core vote.
