Hi my name is Spacedog,
I was playing my immersion based character when the thought came to me that your weapons never wear down.
This idea is something like the Dark Souls or Monster Hunter mechanic that allows you to sharpen your blades when they get blunt.
I thought this might be a good idea to implement into our game, and after a quick jot through the nexus i couldn't find a mod that is somewhat close to this. Of course this would only work on Blades and Melee weapons (excluding blunt weapons, e.g. Hammers). This mod would make our Grindstones more helpful than just making weapons different qualities.
"The nice thing about weapons... They never betray you. So, pay them a little respect, eh?"

This could also incorporate whetstones for you to carry through out your journey in case there isn't a Grindstone near by. Maybe even different types of whetstones so that your weapon could become more powerful.
I haven't even really explained why you should sharpen your weapons yet ;_; silly me.
Iron Sword: 7 base damage at normal Sharpness, perhaps it could lower to 2 damage when it gets blunt (after 200 hits or so) and at max Sharpness it could raise to 13 damage, making it a great way to get an 'edge' over your enemy (nearly puked from that cheesy pun).
So let me know what you guys think, and let me know if you can find a mod like this as i would greatly use it! Thank you for reading this, and stay 'Sharp' *pukes*.
