Making Trinkets interesting Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Right now personally I think trinkets are boring they do nothing and are just asthetic (not really because people really dont care about trinkets unlike clothes and familars.) So here is a proposed solution.

After you finish collecting a set of trinkents that set of trinkets would turn into furniture or an item. These items would not age and be extremely rare. To prevent the problem of peolple not wanting furnitures or items maybe the trinkets could transfor with a little labour from a distillery for cups or furnisher for furniture

Some examples,

The sea shells could turn into a sea-shell drinking cup
Comb, ect, could turn into that make up box that nemo was talking about
If you get all the OM dolls they can be transformed into a doll house.


I am of course missing trinkets but you get the picture.

Because that would mean that cleaver is greater then the rest of the OM's. And since we are all human we are all equal.

How about if you collect four bones and one skull you get a skelaton furniture.

Sorry, I fail to see the difference here...most furniture is just aesthetic as well. How is a non-aging peice of furniture better than a non-aging trinket?

Personally, I like seeing the stuff in my display case.

I would collect this, even if it had no more power than a wooden cup.

If this ever gets implemented, its my opinion that we should be able to have 'prestige items' that aren't any different in performance than a regular item of its type. (The Shell-cup working like a goblet for instance).

Or what if you collect all the zombie Trinkets and you get to turn into a zombie at night. Of course it would only be night on Skellie island but it is still an interesting trick.

Nahh, if you get all the zombie trinkets you should be able to put them together for a zombie familiar that follows you around.

Yes. I'm kidding.

Trinkets for blockade rounds puzzled in. OR for Blockade rounds you puzzled in where your side won the round, even better.

Cap that...not just one for every round. Either one max per blockade, OR progressive trinkets. Common one for one round won, slightly better for 2 winning rounds, even better for winning the blockade.

OR just one for puzzling at least one full round in any blockade where the side you puzzled on WAS the victor (or maybe 3 rounds, 'cause otherwise folks will do one round on each side, to guarantee a trinket, then run away lol)

Just some ideas to incorporate getting a few trinkets to the masses, and make blockades more fun for the little guy!

Blockade Trinkets


Ships Sunk - # of ships sunk in a blockade. Every pirate on the ship striking the sinking blow gets a trinket with the name of the ship(s) sunk, the date, and what island was being blockaded. The Captain gets a gold trinket. (It should be a gold coin with a black X'd out ship on it) You get one per blockade.

Points scored (as mentioned above)

Victor - A trinket given to any pirate that participated in the blockade on the winning side.

Oooohhh, that one is purty!

Only get a trinket if the ship sunk was part of either an attacking or defending force...You don't get a trinket if I take an unoffiliated sloop in to try to get an injury, and you sink my butt.

Perhaps that could be, only sinking ships that are staffed to have influence...using in game mechanics there...*shrugs*

Yup. Like your contingencies.

Think injuries should follow the same logic.

Only get one if on a participating ship.

If ships themselves could carry trinkets, silhouettes of sunk ships that when mouseover'd gave the crew listing would be pretty damn cool. Or acted as hyperlinks to a stat page with the crews of boths ships and the date.

I think it would be cool when you have an injury removed you get a Hook, Peg, or Eye Patch Trinket. That way you can still remember your battle scars without having to wear them all the time.

Actually, that's not a bad idea at all.

You can keep your appendix in a jar, your wisdom teeth in a box, and your other various removed body parts in other containers. Why can't you keep the peg/hook/patch?

They would need to contribute a bit before they actually get the trinket it doesnt seem fair if they just sit on there and get 500 points and get a trinket winning the blockade is enough.

We seriously need this. Injuries are highly prized, but I personally don't like them. If I ever get injured, I'm going directly to the apoth to get it removed. (*GASP*) However, I know that many people treasure them highly.

I don't see why this would be a terrible thing. Make a non-tradeable injury trinket (or trophy... me likey trophies!) so that when you regrow your leg, you keep the peg. A glass eye/patch, hook, and starfish would be nice. ^_^ Also, maybe the hook could be a non-tradeable weapon, a la the backsword, since it already works as one.

I know this has little chance of happening, but I suspect it would be simplicity itself to code (after the art was done, of course). Comments?

If you want an injury, giving a trophy after removing it is a bit, well, illogical. It means you didn't want an injury to start with.

Besides, the Soggy Boot is probably just as indicative of hardcore sinking. A trophy for injuries basically just says "I got a random number assigned to me that generated this thing that I haven't got now, and wasn't particularly after".

There are already trophies and trinkets that people don't want and wish they could get rid of (Proto-diamond, anyone?), and I'm witht he group that tends to think Jinxed Idol is a random trophy (although that really remains to be seen).

Still, I'm not sure why getting an injury and removing it should leave you with nothing. Yes, it's basically an RNG output for having been in a bunch of sinks, but if we're going to reduce it to that, why have the Boot at all? Shouldn't the injury, once obtained, be enough to show that you've done a bunch of sinking (well, in general, yes there are 1st time sinkers with injuries).

The Conch was converted into a map and trophy. Why not an injury?

I love the idea of making more use of trinkets and injuries. BUT, I love my trinkets :lol: It would be fun, though, if I could place them somewhere. i.e. the sand dollar on a part of sand near the pond with your house, but I can also think of other things, like placing flowers in a vase.

As someone already said earlier, furniture is also only esthaetic. After all, we can't use the chairs, sofa's and beds like we can in Real Life. So for trinkets being esthaetic, so be it. I wouldn't want several trinkets to turn in one furniture item. If that would be the case, I'd keep them all in my display case, I like them too much for that. If we could actually make use of the trinkets the way they are.... Well, that could be interesting in my opinion :)

Well, these were my 2 poes :)
