ATP Features


Ahh, items! Sword, hourglass, 3-stringed fiddle… How nice! But, how do you acquire them, and what do they do? Well, items can be bought at taverns or given as rewards from governour-daughters.

There is almost always two types of each item, one basic and one superior. The superior item is an upgrade to the basic item, and you have to have the basic item before purchasing / acquiring the superior item.

When you upgrade, the old item is lost. The only items that doesn't follow this upgrade "theory" is the different nation maps, and the ruby ring / diamond necklace.

If you notice anything that's wrong / missing, please use the feedback-form so I can fix it as fast as possible :)
