i want to throw some ideas that i got today.
The dungeon-modules have chest on the end what i have seen yet (on screenshots) so why dont add some kind of blueprint-system to the game so if you obtain this blueprints you can build better armor or weapons? That would make exploration a lot more interesting. To craft them you black smith need still the right level to do so. This blueprints could be for example “golden chest-armor”.
What do you think?
