I suppose I should clarify what I mean it taking significantly
longer to craft an item in Cosm.  I'm talking about 10 minutes (real
time) to several hours or more.  I assumed that it was self-evident
that it was no fun to sit in front of your PC waiting for minutes or

The reason we make it take so long is to make it actually be
possible to have a scarcity economy, and to make an item be worth
something and continue to be worth something (we also have item
decay, destruction, etc.).
