Preproduction of Goods

Around two weeks prior to an event a member of the logistics staff will make a post in the General Discussion section of the Novitas Forums typically titled: [name of month] preproduction.

In that thread you'll list the items you'll be crafting or producing, and how you will be paying any associated costs. You can look at past months requests for the format the information should be in. Generally all requests are due by the Wednesday before the event.

When you check-in to the event, logistics will confirm that you have the necessary crafting or production points, you will pay any associated costs (and turn in any consumables used to create the items) and then you can pick up the paperwork for your items. If a new item is a magic item, the logistics personnel will mark it with an item code so that other players can use identify magic on it later.

It is the players responsibility to bring (and pay for) any necessary props such as potion vials, weapons, or clothing. These created items are almost always lootable.

The very first event that a character either crafts and/or produces goods there is no coin cost for those goods, even if this is not the characters first event. This only occurs once (i.e. if a player crafts for the first time one event, then produces for the first time at a later event, they will have already gotten their first time free when they crafted). A character can craft or produce during the same event they pick up the skills to do so with new skill points.

Production Points and Related Skills

Production points are used to create consumables such as potions, scrolls, and alchemical compounds. A character only spends production points when you first check-in for an event. In order to create items you'll have to learn to use the preproduction system. Characters can purchase additional production points each event for 3 coin per point. Some items may also be turned in at check-in for additional production points.

Characters are restricted to a cap of 20 production points from all sources.

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.
