Weaponsmith in the group . . . I have questions

Post by Michael » Tue Sep 10, 2019 6:46 pm

So I have a new player joining the group as a weaponsmith. I'm sure there are going to be these questions asked so I thought I would start now

1: He wants to make blood pebble armor. Is that a knack? I know it says regular armor is under Craft Armor rules
2: The living armors like blood pebble says 'installed by a trained Weaponsmith'. Does that mean he needs a knack or special talent for that?

thanks

Creating Living Armor is made with the Enchanting Rules and Craft Armor Skill. See the Companion p. 137 "Living Armor and Shields". No Knacks are needed, but the Weaponsmith does need the Enchanting Pattern.

I think all weaponsmiths are trained to install blood pebble as well.
Most don't have the pattern to make it, but any can remove it, forge it, and/or reinstall it.
And I think all of them can reactivate crystal armors and shields for a year without any special knowledge or knack.
