Having nothing to contribute of late, here is an article about "crafting" in video games--the only place where I think I've ever heard the word "craft" used as a verb:

https://killscreen.com/articles/against-crafting/

I give it its own topic, because I think if anyone uses SOM they will be tempted to add "crafting" to it. Just know that this idea didn't really exist 15 years ago, and our games were just fine then.

Full Disclosure: I avoid any video game with crafting in its vocabulary. I've learned it's a telltale sign of bad game design.
