Subject:The end of dented weapons and tattered armour..

The way the status of objects is shown has changed a bit.

For a while now item damage has internally been represented with two
values Item state, and item permanent damage (or age). The permanent
damage has never been shown to players though, but has affected shop
prices for example. Both states will now be visible, and go like this:

State, from best to worst:

flawless
well-maintained
satisfactory
used
worn
neglected
marred
unavailing
deteriorating
worn out

Permanent damage/age, best to worst:

new
fresh
seasoned
well-seasoned
aged
old
hoary
timeworn
age-old
antiquated

Now, this is important: ONLY THE STATE decides how good the item is.
The older an item is, the quicker its state will go down though.

So - a (flawless, new) sword, is just as good as a (flawless, old) sword.

Items that are timeworn or older cannot be mended in any way, and have
little value.
