Proficiency with a tool helps you to do something you couldn't otherwise do, such as craft or repair an item, forge a document, or pick a lock. Proficiency with a tool allows you to add your proficiency bonus to any ability check you make using that tool. Tool use is not tied to a single ability, since proficiency with a tool represents broader knowledge of its use. For example, your DM might ask you to make a Dexterity check to carve a fine detail with your woodcarver's tools, or a Strength check to make something out of particularly hard wood.

Your race, class, background, or feats give you proficiency with certain tools. Your DM may allow you to train towards tool proficiency as a downtime activity.

Artisan's Tools[edit]

Proficiency with an artisan's tool represents training in how to craft and repair appropriate objects with the relevant tools. Without proficiency, any attempts to craft or repair items with the tools are inherently crude if at all effective.

You can be proficiency with either horse-drawn land vehicles (land vehicles) or aquatic vehicles drawn by sail or pushed by oar (water vehicles). Proficiency allows you to add your proficiency bonus to ability checks made to maneuver and maintain vehicles of the relevant type.

Land Vehicles[edit]

Land vehicles are usually drawn by draft horses, mules, or other creatures that can be found on the page for mounts and animals. The costs below assume such a creature is not included.

Vehicle Cost Weight Description
Cart 150 r 200 lb. This two-wheeled vehicle can be drawn by a single horse (or other beast of burden). It comes with an appropriate harness.
Sled 200 r 300 lb. This is a wagon on runners for moving through snow and over ice, and comes with the harness needed to pull it. It is generally drawn by one or two horses (or other beasts of burden).
Wagon 350 r 400 lb. This is a four-wheeled, open vehicle for transporting heavy loads. In general, at least two horses (or other beasts of burden) draw it. It comes with an appropriate harness.
Carriage 1,000 r 600 lb. This four-wheeled vehicle can transport as many as four Medium passengers within an enclosed cab, plus two drivers. In general, at least two horses (or other beasts of burden) draw it. It comes with the needed harness.

Water Vehicles[edit]

Speed. The movement speeds provided assume calm waters. Particularly slow vessels may be unable to overtake strong currents, and all vessels can ride currents to add onto their normal speed. Vehicles of Huge size and larger traveling at speed handle very slowly, and in a combat situation may even take several rounds just to accelerate to full speed, or to turn its forward trajectory onto a perpindicular course.

Capacity. If the weight in a waterborne vehicle exceeds its capacity, it will begin to sink even in calm waters.

Crew. Most water vehicles require more than one individual to operate effectively without going off course or breaking down under the elements. Only one individual needs proficiency for the whole crew to benefit. In the following table, a "skeleton crew" is the absolute minimum number of capable humanoids needed to man and navigate the vehicle. Operating with less than an "ideal crew" is particularly exhausting, as each individual is effectively working all day with little to no rest. A skeleton crew can work for 8 hours without penalty. For every period of 8 hours after the first, each individual must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or suffer one level of exhaustion. The DC of this saving throw is initially 10, and increases by 2 for every 8 hours worked after the first.

Item Cost Size Speed Capacity Skeleton
Oar 20 r This specifically-shaped wooden pole is ideal for pushing a raft, keelboat, longship, warship, or galley. One is usually at least 10 feet long and weighs about 10 lb., and can be used as an improvised reach weapon.

400 lb. 1 1 A typical raft is about 5 feet square. It is maneuvered by using a pole or oar to push against the bottom of a river, or used to ride a river's current.
