22.1.1 Paperless Crafting System
The paperless crafting system is how tradeskills are facilitated in Aetolia. How it works is outlined below. Obtaining a design ------------------ To obtain a new design, you need to go to your local craft office. - DESIGN REQUEST Costs 300g, will produce a new blank design (DESIGN12345) - DESIGN (12345) COPY (base design) To create a working version of a blank design, you first need to tell it what kind of item you're trying to make. You need to go to the appropriate crafting annex, or an existing design of yours, and copy that onto the blank with the above syntax. PATH TRACK CRAFTS will take you to the local hub in your city, or you can find the central shops in Esterport. - DESIGN (12345) SUBMIT Once you are happy with your design and have added the necessary additional commodities, you then submit it to the crafting queue. Mortal approvers and Becue, the head of crafting, comb over the queue periodically and will then either give you feedback on what needs to be fixed, or approve it completely so you can get to creating it! Creating a design ----------------- Once your design has been approved and paid for, you are then free to create it. To create a paperless design, you can simply CRAFT <design>. If you decide you don't want a design anymore, just DESIGN <#> DELETE. Transferring a design --------------------- If you wish to give your design to someone else, you can do DESIGN <#> TRANSFER TO <person|organization>. Please note that you will lose any power over this design once you have transferred it. Also, you can only transfer a design to a person that has the tradeskill needed to use that design. If you want to retain ownership of your design but simply allow someone else to use it, you can DESIGN <#> ALLOW <person|organization>. If you change your mind, simply DESIGN <#> DENY <person|organization>. Design renewal -------------- The Crafting guild will charge you periodically for the cost of maintaining your designs. As soon as you request a new design, you will have 150 Aetolian months before you will need to pay the fee to renew the design again. To renew an individual design, simply DESIGN <#> RENEW. If you have a lot of designs to renew at once, you may DESIGN RENEW ALL. You can see a list of designs you own that have expired by looking at DESIGN LIST EXPIRED. If you let a design expire, you will be unable to use it until you pay the renewal fee. Designs that remain expired for 30 months will be deleted. You may set designs that you own to auto-deduct funds from your bank account if you choose. To do this, DESIGN <#> AUTOPAY ON. You can turn off this feature with DESIGN <#> AUTOPAY OFF. Designs that belong to an organization may be set to autopay by the leader of that organization. Design permanence ----------------- Crafters who are transcendent in a craft skill may set 10 designs in that craft skill permanent. This is done with DESIGN <#> PERMANENCE ON, and to undo it, simply DESIGN <#> PERMANENCE OFF. Crafters who own an artifact workbook may set up to 50 extra designs to permanent spread across all of their craft skills. This is cumulative with the 10 gained by transcending a craft skill.
