Group Content in ARIS

Is there currently anyway to do group content between players in Aris? I have looked for a while and can't seem to find an answer. An example of what I'm looking for is say an NPC need 400 clues to solve a mystery, and all the player contribute to that total goal. Is this currently possible?

Yes, yes it is possible and I'd love to see more people do stuff like this!

In the beginning, you could use items in the player inventory, but this doesn't work beyond the level of the individual player.

What you can do more recently is to give items either to a group of players (and assign players to a group) or to give items to the world. This is more like what you describe.

I wrote about world items here:

And there's some documentation here:
