Unique Item Rarity[edit]

An item with the Legendary rarity is cool and all, but what if we need to go deeper? Some items simply aren't capable of being Artifacts, maybe they're single use, maybe their not completely broken, but some things are just simply unique. That's where this comes in! An item with the Unique rarity is considered rarer then Legendary on the rarity scale. You should only ever find 1 of it on any given world, or at least they should be so rare and difficult to track down they might as well be completely unique. Note that items of the Unique rarity are not necessarily unique completely, it a big wide omniverse after all. However, finding a Unique rarity item should be almost as dangerous and arduous as finding an Artifact. Whether it's a Permanent Potion, other epic single-use item, or something that just NEEDS to be ridiculously rare, you can stamp it with Unique now. (For context, Legendary items show up on loot tables and the like if those are used in your campaign, but Unique items would never be randomly found in this manner, even by chance, and therefore must be sought out). A Unique rarity item would have a value of 100,000 gp or higher, making Legendary items have a value of 50,001 gp to 99,999 gp.
