In addition to giving the player access to new areas and triggering certain story events, it allows the player to have full insight for the duration. The player’s psyche drains heavily second by second as the player stays within, however; they’re encouraged to use it wisely, as it’s a limited resource.
Items in the game fall under four categories:
Consumables are items the player can use to manipulate their psyche or add an influence mark. Potions last for the duration of a given quest. Food lasts over a period of time.
Ingredients are items used or required for crafting consumables at a brewing pot or for performing rituals.
