Cost: 1000 gp and 500 gp monthly expenses

The laboratory is a business that a player can build and own, the main mechanic of the laboratory is scientific breakthroughs which allows a player and a DM to work together to make a new item or technology, at the end of every day you may make a roll d20 + your intelligence + laboratory level the DC being chosen from the table by the DM to see if you or your staff make a breakthrough allowing you to make a new item or technology available to you. This roll cannot be crit failed or succeeded. Upgrades and additional labs can help by increasing your laboratory level

  • Breakthrough table
  1. Technology type * DC
  2. Basic (example, Creating gunpowder or basic flintlocks) * 15
  3. Advanced (example, Creating the radio and television) * 20
  4. Expert (example, Curing cancer or inventing computers and the internet) * 25
  5. Futuristic (example, learning how to create new alloys like nanocarbon or nanite compounds) * 30
  6. Space Age (example, non-magical constructs like robots and clones or spaceships) * 35
  7. Arcane (example, creating non-magical liminal spaces like the backrooms or antimatter weapons) * 40
