Usage Edit

The Thinking Can can be placed in the player's workshop, donated or gifted.


The Thinking Can can be placed on the ground anywhere in the player's yard. It takes up 3x3 area and provides no stat bonuses.

When The Thinking Can is placed outside in the player's Workshop, there is a chance that one or more NPCs will view it each day. Each time an NPC views The Thinking Can, the player gains a 20-40 Relationship bonus with that NPC.


The Thinking Can can be donated to the Portia Museum as a Large Relic. When donated, the player earns Prompt guild Reputation +20.


The Thinking Can can be given as a gift to other characters.
