Gear and Equipment (Sarosian Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
|World of Miriandis|
Miriandis is nearly 2 AU across, at this size the planet has more natural resources than any other near by star system with all their planets combined. Unique items from all over the land can be found in major trade hubs, as well as numerous materials for all levels of need, from obsidian stone for sling wielding Wu Jen to any alchemical plant discovered by civilized lands. Trade goods are traded based off the distance from where its being sold to a country that has easy access to the trade good in question. Certain mitigating factors such as random city events, droughts, raiders etc. may drive up prices.
While the Underdark is quite large, regular trade relations between the surface world and the Underdark are rare, leading to huge price gouging and many unprepared trade convoys becoming fresh slaves for Neogi. Substances from the Underdark, including Drow built or Beholder built mundane items, are worth on average four times the normal cost, however it should be noted sometimes these items are worth less, for example a Diopsid would never buy Drow built items.
 Gear and Trade
Trade goods are broken down into sections. Each city should have a listing for which resources it has or needs. When a city has access to a resource and has excess of its need that resource is listed as Supply. When a city doesn't have access to a resource and it could use it that resource will be listed as Demand. In some cases a city will have access to a resource but can still use more that resource is listed as Trade. If a city does not want access to a resource it will list it as No Trade. If a resource is not listed that city does not have access to the resource, does not need the resource and does not outright refuse the trade of that resource. Generally speaking if a city has a resource Supply they wont buy it, if they Demand a resource they wont sell it.
For example the city of Paddin has a granite mine and they have no use for the granite beyond selling it, granite is listed as Supply likewise Gnomish Suburbs of Junbe wont buy bone or the Nation of Enia for the most part will not buy silver so those resources are listed as No Trade.

 New Crafting System
Crafting is broken down into seven schools, each school has a feat required to learn it, and a feat required to create advanced/magic components. All crafts will require Artisan's Tools, and will interact with magic, such as Ironwood and woodworking to make stronger items and Fabricate lets you craft without Artisan's Tools.
Items are divided into magic and non-magic, non-magic items take a material component equal to 1/3 the base market cost, the items cost determines the time taken to craft, if it item costs 100gp or less it takes 2d4 hours to craft. Every 150g after adds a +1 hour (101-250gp 2d4+1 hours, 251-400gp 2d4+2 hours), if the item is 701gp or more it takes 2d4 days. For magic items it takes the same material and same skill to craft the non magic vessel, the spells needed to craft must be cast on the item or from a scroll, the crafter need not cast the scroll, the scroll may be prepared ahead of time (10 minutes per scroll) to add a +2 to spellcraft checks when reading.
Special Materials, such as mithril or other precious metals, uncommon stones such as obsidian and diamonds add 1 day per pound used, so a 2 pound non magic obsidian Kukri would take 2d4+48 hours to craft.
To learn a recipe the character must find either a teacher or a manual, teachers often sell blocks of recipes as courses for your character to take, much like an apprentice the teacher will take on two or more students and put them to work in his shop, depending on the recipes learned and their defficulty the time spent varies. Manuals are similar, instead of having the facility provided for you the character must produce his own materials and tools, however the finished product is his to keep. Because manuals often teach less recipes but more complex and rare they often take as long as a teacher, which is to say it has no set length. Manuals are not consumed in reading, and can be sold or traded. Masterwork Quality items have separate recipes, knowing how to craft a dagger and a masterwork dagger are separate.
The purpose of this is to allow a more uniform crafting system. In addition to that it creates a more controlled system for the game master and the players, by using a recipe system instead of a general skill check system it allows the players to feel that their characters have more customization as well as a better sense of what their players do and don't know. A lizardman tribal blacksmith for example shouldn't know how to make a Dwarven Urgrosh when his tribe has never met a dwarf.
Each feat has prerequisites: Lvl 6 and is a [General] feat, each feat provides you with a small list of craftable items.
