skill question

Post by D Schneider » Wed Dec 21, 2016 2:11 am

I was wondering about a skill received by mages at the novice tier, Craftsman: magical tools. What counts as magical tools and how would they be used in game? There's no info jn the player'd guide about that.

This Skill is meant as a catch-all for the tools required by any Lodge - wands, amulets, cards, crystal balls, orreries, whatever the Lodge requires as non-enchanted trappings. The Skill can also be used to create items to receive enchantments, which grants a -2 to the Target Number for enchanting if the Craftsman Test is successful. Having this Skill at a low Rank means you don't have to run out and buy a new wand if you suffer a mishap and there's no Spellotape available. Having it at a higher Rank means you stand a good chance of getting a TN reduction when making an enchanted item.
