Items have a variety of uses, such as being eaten, used as a weapon, or used in crafting. All items have a weight, a durability, and usually belong to one or more groups.

There is no limit to how many items the player can carry, however there is a limit to how much weight the player can carry while moving before they start suffering penalties. When nearing the weight limit the player will move more slowly. When above the limit the player will lose large amounts of stamina for every step he takes. If the player has no stamina left they will take a little damage on every step.
