dryrot - a chance the items in a wood container could be lost if not dug up in a certain amount of time? shouldn't be too short or theres no reason to bury stuff at all, but shouldn't be too long or theres no point in having the idea.

erosion - when you bury the item after a while it begins to show signs of something being buried there? if dryrot is added also this should be about 3/4 of the time that takes...so if dryrot happens in 60 days erosion would happen in 45, so those last 15 days gives people in the area a chance to find the item before it goes poof.

numbers given are jsut for example, I don't really have a clue what actual numbers on those should be...



Good Idea, I added some of what your talking about to my first post :D

would it be just metal chests or would barrels/pots work as well?

I would assume that both could be used, but perhaps a Metal chest would decay slower.

Yeah, that'd be fun, but don't hold your breath. We don't have any sort of good way of storing that kind of data at the moment I'm afraid.

Can't it get stored the same way as trees and old stumps?
