The man with the probe
Time for a new thread
I definitely don't think the PC should get arbitrary Craft Points while away (yeah, my NPC was working on mundane crafting, so now I get more magic items), but if the PC is willing to set aside funding ahead of time and specify a specific item the NPC was making, I would let the NPC accrue the CP for that item only at the usual half normal rate.Boddynock said:OK, I'll ask the question which got lost in the last thread.
Is it reasonable for someone with a Craftsman's job to receive half Craft Points per week while on adventure, if there's an NPC running the shop?
I have to admit I don't much like it either except for the simple Profession/Craft version. But while you've been staying away, I've been jumping in to try to make sure it doesn't get out of hand to the point that PCs are being punished greatly for not using it.Erekose13 said:Personally I've stayed out of any questions concerning the Job System because I don't like the concept. As I understand it, it is designed to give PCs something to do during the downtime to make a little cash (or XP or CP). I don't understand why we give any benefits during an adventure at all. If it were to come down to it, I'd vote against at the very least XP and CP while out on adventure.
Well, the good news is that you did at least read my plan correctly and cite a valid exampleBoddynock said:Oops, sorry RA!!! Grovel, grovel.
That'll teach me to comment on the run.
Yours, of course, is the magnificent intellect behind such a masterful scheme. None but a fool could have mistaken such creativity for the work of anyone but the great and glorious Rystil Arden.
(How am I doing? )
BigB said:What is the ruling on low level rangers (1st, 2nd,3rd) casting from scrolls if it is on the ranger spell list? I understand casting with wands is allowed. What if the wisdom score of the low level ranger is low also. "Use Magic Device" necessary?
Without use magic device, a 1st level Ranger can use a divine scroll of a spell on the ranger class list, but only if he has sufficient wisdom.SRD said:To have any chance of activating a scroll spell, the scroll user must meet the following requirements.
The spell must be of the correct type (arcane or divine). Arcane spellcasters (wizards, sorcerers, and bards) can only use scrolls containing arcane spells, and divine spellcasters (clerics, druids, paladins, and rangers) can only use scrolls containing divine spells. (The type of scroll a character creates is also determined by his or her class.)
The user must have the spell on his or her class list.
The user must have the requisite ability score.
I believe a 1st level Ranger has a caster level of 0, so there is a 5% chance of miscasting, and then possible mishap.SRD said:If she meets all three requirements but her own caster level is lower than the scroll spell’s caster level, then she has to make a caster level check (DC = scroll’s caster level + 1) to cast the spell successfully. If she fails, she must make a DC 5 Wisdom check to avoid a mishap (see Scroll Mishaps, below). A natural roll of 1 always fails, whatever the modifiers.
