Items

Currently five items can be made in the Artificers' Academy. This is a list of what can be made, and their quality levels from worst to best. Please note that wooden items can be stained with Inks and polished with Waxes.

  • Staff
    • "This is a sturdy <wood> walking staff, smooth and unadorned. About two-thirds of the way up, the wood has been subtly shaped for ease of holding."
    • "Slender and wieldy, this staff is six feet of <wood> shaped and balanced to be almost perfect for a long journey complete with bandit encounters."
  • Wand
    • "This is obviously a wand, and it would probably do well for any normal purpose, but it's not entirely straight."
    • "Slender and wieldy, this wand is a food and a half of <wood> which tapers in gentle recurving arcs towards its tip."
  • Flute
    • "This is a <wood> flute, which will probably make a fairly musical sound."
    • "This is an elegant <wood> flute, quite well made."
  • Pen
    • "This is an ordinary-looking pen."
    • "This is a sturdy <wood> fountain pen, smooth and unadorned. It sits neatly and comfortably in the hand."
    • "This pretty, slender <wood> pen sits lightly in the hand, the delicate shaft and responsive balance leaving no doubt that it will write beautifully for a skilled writer."
  • Walking Stick (One-handed staff)
    • "This sturdy three-foot length of <wood> would do perfectly well as a support when walking, but the carved owl perched on the top lacks artistry."
    • "This is a sturdy <wood> walking stick, topped with a smoothly rounded knob upon which perches a cleverly carved owl."
