GristGrist is an abstract currency. It is earned through defeating enemies, failing rolls, or achieving check-marks in the story.
Grist can be used to "alchemize" (create) equipment and weapons. When alchemizing, a character might also need specific ingredients or components. The specific amount of Grist needed to alchemize equipment/weapons varies based on the game-play bonuses of the resulting equipment.
Grist can also be used to boost stat modifiers/amounts permanently, add extra points to a roll, or re-roll a dice.
Grist is specific to characters, not players. However, characters can share their grist with each other.
