Crafting and Professions

<main <house rules


Crafting is done by the day instead of by the week.  Therefore, you do everything as per the rules until you reach the step where you multiply your check times the DC at that point the result equals a days work not a weeks work.  Following these steps.

  1. Find the items price in silver pieces (1gp=10sp).
  2. Find the item's DC listed on the "Craft Skill" table.
  3. Pay 1/3 the item's price in raw materials.  can be forgone using the spells "Fabricate", "IronWood" or "Minor Creation"
  4. Make an appropriate Craft check representing one days worth of work. If the check succeeds, multiply your check result by the DC. If the result × the DC equals the price of the item in sp, then you have completed the item. (If the result × the DC equals double or triple the price of the item in silver pieces, then you've completed the task in one-half or one-third of the time. Other multiples of the DC reduce the time in the same manner.) If the result × the DC doesn't equal the price, then it represents the progress you've made. Record the result and make a new Craft check for the next day. Each day, you make more progress until your total reaches the price of the item in silver pieces.
  5. Fast, Speedy or Insane Crafting:  You can set yourself to working quickly to do this you add 10 (fast), 20 (speedy) or 30 (insane) to the DC for the item.  This effectively makes an item more difficult to craft but also crafts it quicker.

Taking 10/20:  When crafting if you are capable of crafting an item i.e. your craft skill + 20 exceeds the DC you can take 20 and you will accomplish the minimum DC required to craft the item.  This can be applied to fast, speedy or insane crafting as well.

Creative Crafting:  It is possible to spend time practicing an appropriate craft or profession to create trophies.  Also it is possible to add trophies to your weapons armor or create cosmetic wearable items.  Though these things will not add AC or damage to the items it will add renown while undertaking tasks for settlements or organizations.  The limitation is common sense and your imagination.  examples:  Adding monster fangs to the hilt of a sword,  a cloak made of the hide of a beast.  a helmet made from the head of beast


If you practice a craft, profession or performance as work you roll your check and you get the full check times your level as a days wage. (Check x Lvl = wage in GP)  Performance will receive additional gold or renown based on their renown level.
