Crafting and Expression

From Eden Calling LARP
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Two abilities are used in the Eden Calling crafting and expression system, each providing its own benefits while having important differences.

Expression can be used to design, compose, or otherwise, express an object that assists in Mental or Socials challenges by adding Bonus Traits.

Crafting can be used to make an item that assists in Physical or Mental challenges by adding Bonus Traits.

There are three Crafts in the game. See the abilities section for more information.

Crafting and Expression

To make an item that adds N number of Bonus Traits, you need to make an N level Extended Static Challenge equal to the category challenge required to make said item. See the difficulty chart.

For example, if you wanted to tailor a suit that gives 1 Bonus Social then you would need to have Craft: equipment (Leadership) and make an Extended Static Challenge at 5 Traits with 1 Ability Level Retest. Now when in Social Challenges with Leadership as the ability, They are up 1 Bonus Social.

Note There is no difference between offensive and defensive traits.

Another Note Making one-time use items is slightly easier. The traits of the challenge are reduced by 5, and each action taken to craft a one use item produces 2 of said item. The item breaks/ or is consumed after a single challenge augmented by the item.

Crafting Challenge Ratings [1]

Crafting difficulties can be further altered by science as detailed below

Science Science can be used to lower the difficulty of a craft check by 1. You take a science action and make a science chop 1 difficulty lower than the craft chop you are attempting. If you succeed the science chop the difficulty of the the craft chop is lowered by 1.
