  • The time to craft an item depends on the skill of the craftsman and the labor cost. Which is the cost of the item minus the material cost.

Each skill level contributes a dollar amount per hour towards this labor cost.

* laborers, skill 10 or less contribute $2/hour
* Skilled, skill between 11-14 contribute $4/hour
* Expert, skill above 14 contribute $8/hour

  • Any number of people may work on an item at a time, but the crafting time can never be less than an Experts individual craft time.
  • Once the Labor cost has been reached a skill roll is made with the craftsman’s skill who contributed the most labor cost to crafting, or the most skilled craftsman at -2. Whichever is higher. If the item is ornate than an additional roll for Jeweler is required following those same guidelines.

Failure on a roll produces a cheap item or nothing is achieved if a cheap item was the goal. Critical failure wastes materials and damages equipment.
Success produces the item as intended.
Critical success produces an item of finer quality then intended.
