Mystwood

 

Artist

Requirements: Patronage. Must be approved by the Staff, based on art created in game prior to taking the Artist occupation.

Artists- true artists- are able to move people to emotions with merely a brush stroke, carved line, or well-placed word. The artists of Mystwood create jewelry, tapestries, paintings, fine carvings, engravings, songs, books and the like in order to enrich the lives and coffers of the folk around them. Where guild crafters and master thespians do these things for their living, and to make a wage, Artists do things for the sheer joy of creation, to bring praise to the gods, or to celebrate the world.

Skills

Artistry
True artists can imbue their crafts with almost supernatural beauty. A character with Artistry may spend Craft Points from any Craft Skill they possess to embellish their created items with exceptional traits, as follows:

1 CP may be spent to imbue an item with an Air, Earth, Fire, or Water Component.

1 CP may be spent to attach a tag which reads: ‘Forsooth, upon your first time reading this tag and looking at this item, ‘Compel to stand in awe for a thirty count by Will’ as you are overcome by emotion.’

2 CP may be spent to add a Life or Death component.

2 CP may be spent for a tag reading: ‘Forsooth, upon your first time reading this tag and looking at this item: ‘Torment by Will’ as you are overcome by emotion.’

3 CP may be spent for a Karma or a Chaos component.

4 CP may be spent for a Time component.

Once the item is created, any Components attached may be removed from the item and used by characters with the appropriate skills, as normal.
