One of the major changes that is about to start to go in is the creation of Crafting Guild.

This will replace the idea of the polymath guild and it will be a combination of the Tinker Guild and the Enchanter Guild but with no combat options.

The thought process is this...

Everyone will be able to join the Crafting guild and craft if they want to, this is in addition to their normal guild, however to keep it from creating an environment where noone needs anyone else, the following changes will be going in.

CMST - T will be Trade level and have its own xp and devs. This is so that some guild able to get magic or special xp quickly couldnt then turn it around and use it in the Crafter guild.

LT - Long Term will return to being No Move events. This is so that if you want to craft, you must be dedicated to it. Noone is forced to craft. However getting to the point where you have a high crafting level will take time and dedication.

Exp - LT experience will remain what it is now. Yes this will mean a very very slow levelling rate. But we want to start that way so that we can bump up if needed. Starting high and then taking away causes a lot more heartache.

Bear in mind this will also allow us to add other crafting skills in the future to make other new things to fully flesh out the crafting system, ie Carpenter, Mason, etc.

Below is the proposed breakdown of skills and spells. We do know yet if we will make people choose Armorer or Weaponsmith as it might not be necessary since the time it will take to advance them both.

"Exp - LT experience will remain what it is now. Yes this will mean a very very slow levelling rate. But we want to start that way so that we can bump up if needed. Starting high and then taking away causes a lot more heartache."

The difference in the XP you get from spells (enchanter things) and skills (tinker skills) is *huge*. increasing the enchanter LT XP 6x will make it about equal.

It wont be tinker and enchanter anymore, just Crafter, only one pool of exp/devs

But yeah, we need to look at the rate the exp comes in for the skills vice the spells for equal effort/time.

At first glance this seems very intriging. There are a few complications that will have to be worked out but I think it can be done very well.

Enchanter stuff is easy to change, since no other guilds get enchantment as a skill. The skills like detect magic will have to be changed.

One complication I can think of, that shouldn't be too hard to fix is that fighters currently level s with balance weapon, but prior to level 12, generally use decorative carvings. We'll need to give them something in s to be able to get up to balance.

Not a huge issue but might have a few tiny kinks like that to work out.

Overall though, I must say I'm optimistic about it.

Oh, and energy manipulation is going to be erased! No more chanter shields!

Oh a second note. The only conceptual problem that I have is the idea of fighters and thieves casting spells. Seems wrong. Also the idea of thieves also having the ability to dispel runes doesn't seem right.

But remember, it all goes into T of CMST, not in M or S, and we are goign to look at dispel rune. Maybe remove it since its not technically crafting something

Aether barrier should be moved from AMs to the crafter guild, probably to under enchantment. It's so similar to runes and install lock and vaporize metal in that it's just anotehr castle improvement/defense.

Elemental mist (does what vaporize metal does) might as well be removed.

Bless weapon and armour might stay with the Rislans. they are religious things and should be cleric, not crafter.

Bags of holding I have no real opinion on one way or the other.

Thieves getting dispel magic is a bit problematic. I'm not sure I'm in favour of everybody being able to get dispel. Maybe make it not crafter and give it as a spell to a few more guilds besides Arch-mages. It would make sense for elementalists and necromancers, so you have the pick of more than one guild as a looting partner (before it was enchanter or AM, now it might just be AM unless more guilds get it).

Nod.. That's my point. All of the fighter s skills they can use to xp S on would be removed from S and put into T. Making them virtually impossible to level S.

It isn't a showstopper though, just something needs to be worked out for them.

Perhaps another guild (elementalists?) could gain a remove rune spell.

"Using the power of the elements you begin to erode away the magical rune"... type thing.

Edit: Damn Kim.. beating me to the punch on the dispel rune idea...

thieves already have a dispel skill. It sucks mind you, but it exists.

I think balance weapon needs to be pulled from that list... can you imagine Mr. 300 wield CL with 200 balance weapon? Heaven help us.
