    Tech World Rogue-Like Game

    I need more Items:

    It's very tech-heavy at the moment. For every xxx number of items of a particular tag, player gets +1 to that stat.

    Like any other game, items are randomly found while playing.

    I'm open to any an all ideas. Also, this is a parody so going with stereotypes if fine as long as they haven't been worn into the dirt.

    For example, the Hoodie might have to go. Haven't decided.

    Also too, I will update edit this post to update the Enum as it changes.

    Code:
    Public Enum ITEM
    
      idx_Item_Nothing = 0           ' Not Included when Showing Player Inventory.  Only used when Player "Finds" something.
                                     ' E.g. He can Find Nothing.
    
      idx_Item_AuxilliaryKeyboard    ' Tech Item.
      idx_Item_FlashDrive            ' Tech Item.
      idx_Item_IndustrialPowerStrip  ' Tech Item.
      idx_Item_JammedCopier          ' Tech Item.
      idx_Item_Password              ' Tech Item.
      idx_Item_PasswordAndFlashDrive ' Tech Item.
      idx_Item_SoftwareLicense       ' Tech Item.
      idx_Item_Text                  ' Tech Item.
    
      idx_Item_Password              ' Tech Item. Chance to Proc Finding another Item.
      idx_Item_PasswordAndFlashDrive ' Tech Item. Chance to Proc Finding another Item.
    
      idx_ManualTypewriter           ' Miscellaneous Item.
      idx_Item_Kitten                ' Miscellaneous Item. Stress Increase Item.
      idx_Item_Puppy                 ' Miscellaneous Item.  Social Item. Stress Reduce Item.
    
      idx_Item_Date                  ' Social Item.
      idx_Item_CleanUnderpants       ' Social Item. Clothing Item.
      idx_Item_DressShirt            ' Social Item. Clothing Item.
      idx_Item_Pants                 ' Social Item. Clothing Item.
    
      idx_Item_CasualTie             ' Clothing Item.
      idx_Item_Hoodie                ' Clothing Item.
    
      idx_Item_Donut                 ' Food Item.
      idx_Item_EnergyDrink           ' Food Item.
      idx_Item_Latte                 ' Food Item.
      idx_Item_HealthyLunch          ' Food Item. ' Extra HP.
    
      idx_RandomEvent                ' Procs a Random Event.
      
    End Enum
    By the way, these are the Stats for the Player that we're trying to affect:

    Code:
    Public Enum PLAYER_STATS
    
      idx_Player_Stat_Booksmarts
      idx_Player_Stat_Courage
      idx_Player_Stat_HP
      idx_Player_Stat_IntestinalFortitude
      idx_Player_Stat_Panache
      idx_Player_Stat_ShameAndEmbarrassment
      idx_Player_Stat_TechSavvy
      idx_Player_Stat_Wherewithal
      idx_Player_Stat_WorkStress
      idx_Player_Stat_XP
    
    End Enum
    Code:
    ' Suggested:
    
    ' // From VBForums.
    
      'metro pass
      'business card
      'city map
      'coffee voucher
      'takeout Menu
      'local newspaper
      'public wi-fi access
      'smartphone
      'laptop
      '
      'For stereotype items:

      'fidget spinner
      'avocado toast
      'selfie stick
      'kale chips
      'vape pen
      'pet rock
      'moustache wax
      'quinoa salad
      'vintage vinyl record

    Some good ones. Just need to balance them all so not too many of some or too few of others.

    Thank you.
