Create more uses more all those random gems/stones

Has anyone suggested to create a better use for all those random gems/stones? Instead of collecting millions of them or selling them for next to nothing, maybe they can be of some better use.

I use them to mark my way in the green maze and similar confusing places

Unlike Nut, I use small rocks to mark paths. I have 769 of them left, so I won't run out anytime soon :lol:

I would also like to find a use for the gems. The question is, what could they be used for? I have thought about this, but have never come up with anything.

Glass gems could be used to really make glass - so manufacturer's could be buying them.
If we someday need a high amount of flask or windows or similar items, they could be selling them in exchange for the material.
I.e. glasses, resisting blind status effects.

Jeweliers could be interested in coloured gems and teeth/claws. They could have regular rings/necklaces in stock but when you bring the right gems, they will sell you a better version of them. Such a think could even work for the GoW or give new chances for gameplay.
I. e. a jewel with the GoW could make you more resistent to cold and we can add a mountain/polar region where the cold bothers the player.
Perhaps a new rare Gem of Cold could be obtained there which can be used for a jewel that resists heat.

Pelts and Fur could be used to make cloth armor.

Is there somewhere a own house planned? First you need to buy and then furnish it. You might need the right materials in exchange for that.

Cool ideas, I like especially the own house - although our hero should not build houses instead of trailing Andor :D

How about adding them to armor or weapons to add something special to it? Actor conditions maybe?

You could swallow some to help digestion, lowering the chance of negative effects from food. ;)

I don't think eating rocks, even expensive ones, would help digestion ;)

I also thought about enhancing an item with a gem, for example a dagger with a ruby in the pommel. We could do this for a few specific items, but the game engine would not allow us to do it in a general way (i.e. it would be similar to the enhancements in Remgard).

If they could be used to exchange for other useful items would be the best use for them, and maybe used in combination to exchange or create other items - like a recipe book for gems and stones etc, add 5 of this gem and 30 of that and 18 of this etc to create x special item...

Hmm. Using them in combinations to get something that is actually useful is an interesting idea.
