Item

Many new items can be crafted in the Artificers' Academy.

Tiny bars or larger

  • oak leaf ring
    • "This crudely forged <metal> band bears something vaguely oval that was probably intended to be a leaf."
    • "This heavy, ornate ring consists of a thick band of <metal>, wrought in the form of a dozen oak leaves overlapping around its length. Lovingly detailed as they are, the leaves could have been picked from the ground on an autumn day."
    • "A deeply incised pattern of oak leaves wraps entirely around the <metal> band of this ring, as though falling endlessly from a tree in the autumn."
    • "This heavy, ornate ring consists of a thick band of <metal>, wrought in the form of a dozen intricately detailed oak leaves overlapping around its length. A single acorn, done in low relief, sits cradled between the leaves in the centre. The leaves look as crisp and fresh as if they'd been plucked just that moment from a flourishing tree in the height of summer."
  • cabbage brooch
    • "An elegant circle of <metal> bears a pattern of cabbage fronds in low relief, recalling the tasty and loyal denizens of the Sto Plains. From beneath a frond at the centre of the disc, a pair of eyes peek shyly out with an affectionate gaze."
  • fountain pen nib
    • A tiny bar will suffice
      • "This is a rather poorly made <metal> italic nib."
      • "This is a well-made <metal> italic nib."
      • "This is a very well-made <metal> italic nib."
      • "This is a masterfully made <metal> italic nib."
      • "This is a beautiful <metal> italic nib."

Small bars or larger

  • wise old owl ink well
    • "This little <metal> owl ink well has a simple charm, though the feather detailing is sketchy at best and one folded wing is a little longer than the other. The little hooked beak seems to smile at you."
  • chain of stars
    • "A half-dozen largish <metal> stars, strung on a necklace, glint like the first stars of the evening sky."

Medium bar or larger

  • tankard
    • "This is a shapeless, ugly <metal> mug, which will probably make the beer taste foul. It almost certainly leaks, too."
