Craft Points and Related Skills

Craft points are used with the ornamenter skill to craft magic objects, with the weaponsmith skill to craft enhanced weapons, and the tinker skill to creating tinkering items. A character only spends crafting points when you first check-in for an event. In order to create items you'll have to learn to use the pre-production system. Unlike production points you may not purchase additional crafting points at check-in.

Third level spells and lower can be imbued into magic objects to create per game day items with one use per game day. The spell being imbued must be known by the character crafting that object or be provided by a consumable such as a scroll (the character must be able to read magic to use a scroll). Other characters, or other imbued items do not count as providing access to a spell.

Characters are capped at a total of 20 crafting points from all sources.

Weapon Crafting

Characters with the weaponsmith skill can craft weapons using crafting points. A character only spends crafting points when you first check-in for an event. In order to create items you'll have to learn to use the pre-production system.

Weapons created with the weaponsmith skill can have multiple enhancements purchased for them. The crafting point cost to make an enhanced weapon is based on this table. For each craft point spent an additional 10 coins must be spent to create an enhanced weapon.

Ammunition is crafted in groups of 4 which count as a single weapon when calculating costs. If the ammunition is imbued with a spell, one of the 4 items has the spell and the other three count as magic weapons. For other enhancements each piece of ammunition is created with that enhancement.

A weapon imbued with a 1st, 2nd or 3rd level spell is considered a magic weapon at no additional cost.

Weapon Props

Props for weapons have certain requirements to be used in play. If a weapon is rejected for not being safe but is found still being used it may be summarily destroyed to ensure an unsafe weapon is not brought onto the field.

Melee weapons props, thrown weapons props, and missile weapons props each have slightly different requirements for being legal for game use.

In addition to a weapon needing to meet standards for safety the appearance of the weapon indicates certain information. The following colors are reserved for and required by special materials:

  • Elven steel weapons must be covered with black paint then decorated with natural looking thin white veins.

  • Nature weapons must have the blade or any striking surface covered with red paint.

  • Primal weapons must be covered with red paint and decorated with lightning-like lines of black crisscrossing the surface.

  • Weapons made of more than one exceptional material must conform to all color requirements, usually this is done by coloring each cutting edge of a sword as a different material.

While not a special material one last item deserves note. A master's blade must have an above average looking prop to represent it.
