Enchanting v.II



  • This thread is a cleaned up version of the original version. This thread is for reference only, discussion or questions should be sent to me directly via forum pm, I will address changes here. If I do not post a change, there is no change.

    Cost Chart
    1 point item–-----Caster Level 1--------100 1e exp-------100 gold
    2 point item-------Caster Level 2--------200 1e exp-------200 gold
    3 point item-------Caster Level 3--------400 1e exp-------400 gold
    4 point item-------Caster Level 4--------800 1e exp-------700 gold
    5 point item-------Caster Level 5--------1,600 1e exp-----1,100 gold
    6 point item-------Caster Level 6--------3,000 1e exp-----1,600 gold
    7 point item-------Caster Level 7--------6,000 1e exp-----2,200 gold
    8 point item-------Caster Level 8--------9,000 1e exp-----2,900 gold
    9 point item-------Caster Level 9--------12,000 1e exp----3,700 gold

    Between Enchantments
    There is no longer a delay between submission of the request and receiving the item. You can receive the item as soon as it is imported and an available DM is present to issue it. There is no limit to the number of enchantments you can do.

    50-50 XP Loss
    The person to whom the item is being enchanted to, if other than the caster, can choose to take half of the XP hit for the caster. The character receiving the item must be at least the same level as the item, and at least level 6. (So level 6 for 4 point item, and level 8 for 8 point item).

    Note that items created like this can NOT be given to other characters than the one initially receiving it (and taking half of the XP hit), unless you ask for permission from the enchantment DM. Failure to ask for permission will have serious concequences. The items that require permission to trade will say so in their description.

    Failure Chance
    The Failure chance is 3(point total) - Caster Level.

    Failure chance can be reduced by 25% for a particularly well-written and thought out submission. This means going above and beyond. This bonus will also apply to the critical bonus chance.

    Failure chance can be reduced an additional 25% for using appropriate components. What precisely these might be are open to interpretation and depend upon the item being created. This bonus will also apply to the critical bonus chance.

    Note that reductions in failure chance are applied BEFORE caster level reduction. 0% failure chance is possible. For half exp, the reduction is applied to the item level, caster level remains unmitigated.

    Critical bonuses will result in half exp and gold cost for the item.

    The formula for determining critical bonus chance is:
    Caster Level - Item Level.

    Bonuses are applied to the item points, not the end result, fractions are rounded down.

    examples:

    Level 13 caster - 3 point item
    failure chance: 3(3) - 13 = -4 0% failure chance
    critical success: 13 - 3 = 10 10% critical success
    25% bonus: 13 - 3(.75) = 10.75 10% critical success
    50% bonus: 13 - 3(.5) = 11.5 11% critical success

    Level 6 caster - 6 point item
    failure chance: 3(6) - 6 = 12 12% failure chance
    25% bonus: (3(6)).75 - 6 = 7.5 7% failure chance
    50% bonus: (3(6)).5 - 6 = 3 3% failure chance
    critical success: 6 - 6 = 0 0% critical success
    25% bonus: 6 - 6(.75) = 1.5 1% critical success
    50% bonus: 6 - 6(.5) = 3 3% critical success

    Since today, Holy Symbol is now an enchantable property.

    The point cost is 1 and it can be enchanted in any slot.

    However, enchanting a Holy Symbol property comes with a disclaimer:

    Holy Symbol property will always be VISIBLE.

    The PC will wear proudly the symbol of their diety in order to turn undead (for example, without switching weapons).

    The player is expected to RP thier PCs accordingly, and also will be advised to add a line in regards of the diety's name in !description flavor or !description lore.

    Clandestine evil clerics: Your patron deity will always be visible if you enchant an item with this property.


  • Narfell DM

    Another New change to the enchanting rules:

    Non Casters can now enchant up to 9pt at the following rate

    9 point item-----Caster Level 9-------12,000 1e xp-------5550gold


  • Narfell DM

    Disclaimer added to Saving Throws section. Read carefully.

  • Narfell DM

    New Changes to the Enchanting System

    1: MW Bags enchantable to the next tier of weight reduction as a 6 point item.

    2: Clarify on the rules regarding critical success and failure:
    Critical Success = No experience loss
    Failure = Exp, Gold, Spell Components lost and enchantment unsuccessful.

    3: Projectile Enchanting = Importing a bundle of arrows every day is a pain in the ass so I will ask for suggestions on how we can improve this and will consider something.

    4. The 1/week limit on enchanting is gone. You can't farm unlimited exp anymore so if you want to lose all your exp that is your choice. HOWEVER if you enchant back to back and lose a level, the next enchantment roll will be reflected as well as if you lose the ability to cast certain spell or go from lvl 9 to lvl 8 the enchantment will be reflected by this.

    Edit: Link updated.



  • Rare materials update!

    The following base materials are added to the list of enchantable items.

    Mithril:
    Helmet: +3 vs. Concentration, 40% weight
    Weapon: +1 AB, 40% weight
    Shield: -5% Arcane Spell Failure, +1 to hide, move silently, open lock, parry, pick pocket, ride, set trap, and tumble, 40% weight
    Armor: -5% Arcane Spell Failure, +1 to hide, move silently, open lock, parry, pick pocket, ride, set trap, and tumble, 40% weight

    Darkwood:
    Ranged Weapon: +1 AB, +2 Mighty, 40% weight
    Weapon: +1AB, +1 Reflex, 40% weight
    Shield: +1AC, +1 Reflex, 40% weight

    Adamantine:
    Helmet: +1 AC, +2 vs. Concentration, 80% weight
    Weapon: +1 enhancement bonus, 80% weight
    Shield: +1 AC, 80% weight
    Armor: +1 AC, 80% weight

    Also as clarification to enchanting rules:

    Attack Bonus:
    Enchanting a base component that has +1AB bonus with a +1 physical damage bonus (2 points) will be represented by +1 enhancement bonus. This can then be incremented to +2 enhancement bonus with the standard +1 enhancement bonus (4 points).


  • Narfell DM

    As of today, non casting classes can also submit enchantment requests, similar to casters, with two differences: Item g.p. cost, which is increased by 1.5x the item price for casters and point limit, set at 8 point items. The cost chart for non-casters is as follows:

    Cost Chart
    1 point item–-----Caster Level 1--------100 1e exp-------150 gold
    2 point item-------Caster Level 2--------200 1e exp-------300 gold
    3 point item-------Caster Level 3--------400 1e exp-------600 gold
    4 point item-------Caster Level 4--------800 1e exp------1.050 gold
    5 point item-------Caster Level 5--------1,600 1e exp-----1,650 gold
    6 point item-------Caster Level 6--------3,000 1e exp-----2,400 gold
    7 point item-------Caster Level 7--------6,000 1e exp-----3,300 gold
    8 point item-------Caster Level 8--------9,000 1e exp-----4,350 gold
    9 point item-----Caster Level 9-------12,000 1e xp-------5550gold

    Also, the calculations for success/failure are based on total character levels, like so:

    Failure Chance
    The Failure chance is 3(point total) - Character Level.

    Failure chance can be reduced by 25% for a particularly well-written and thought out submission. This means going above and beyond. This bonus will also apply to the critical bonus chance.

    Failure chance can be reduced an additional 25% for using appropriate components. What precisely these might be are open to interpretation and depend upon the item being created. This bonus will also apply to the critical bonus chance.

    Note that reductions in failure chance are applied BEFORE caster level reduction. 0% failure chance is possible. Critical bonuses will result in half exp and gold cost for the item.

    The formula for determining critical bonus chance is:
    Character level - Item Level.

    Bonuses are applied to the item points, not the end result, fractions are rounded down.

    examples:

    Level 13 (Fighter 10/Rogue 3) character - 3 point item
    failure chance: 3(3) - 13 = -4 0% failure chance
    critical success: 13 - 3 = 10 10% critical success
    25% bonus: 13 - 3(.75) = 10.75 10% critical success
    50% bonus: 13 - 3(.5) = 11.5 11% critical success

    Level 6 (Monk 6) character - 6 point item
    failure chance: 3(6) - 6 = 12 12% failure chance
    25% bonus: (3(6)).75 - 6 = 7.5 7% failure chance
    50% bonus: (3(6)).5 - 6 = 3 3% failure chance
    critical success: 6 - 6 = 0 0% critical success
    25% bonus: 6 - 6(.75) = 1.5 1% critical success
    50% bonus: 6 - 6(.5) = 3 3% critical success



  • The next two enchanting dates are as follows:

    • 24th of March, 2013
    • 14th of April, 2013

    Please email your enchanting submissions to NarfellStaff@gmail.com



  • A reminder about enchanting facilities:

    As per the rules, enchanting facilities ARE required for enchanting. These are accessible through certain guilds and organisations in game. If you're not sure about this, please contact me for clarification.

    Facilities for enchanting are present in:

    **- The Order of the Divine Shield

    • The Bardic College
    • Maria's Tower (for Spellweaver members and those she lets us it)
    • The Royal Troff Legion
    • The Church of Bane
    • The Wolves
    • The Order of the Shining Phoenix
    • The Druid Circle of Quercatha Terr
    • Peltarch Defenders (through the Cerulean Lab)
    • The Dwarven Hold**

    If you are in an organisation or guild and believe that they should have enchanting facilities, and they do not appear on this list, please contact me.

    Whilst in the past I have allowed a little flexibility in how enchanting is done (regarding facilities) I'm going to require DM approval for any non-standard enchanting facility requests. This can be as simple as speaking with me about it.

    I promise not to bite.



  • Following a review of how enchantments are processed and handled, the Narfell Staff (including PGs/PLs) have agreed to trial the following system, to streamline things and make it easier for both players and DMs.

    This system is on trial from September until the end of the year. If we find it is not working, we may change submissions to monthly instead of fortnightly, or revert to the old system.

    Any questions, please feel free to approach a PG/PL, or myself. I'll be unofficially handling enchantments and the enchantment process, but any member of the DM team can issue enchanted items.

    @358c9e38f8:

    (1) Enchantments are submitted regularly, but they are only processed by a DM after the 2nd and 4th Sundays of a month (based in GMT). If a submission is received after that time, it goes into the next lot of submissions.

    (2) Enchantments may only be submitted by email, to narfellstaff@gmail.com. This is to centralise the process and remove the risk of submissions going missing if a DM becomes unavailable.

    (3) Thus, a DM need only check for enchantment submissions on the day AFTER the 2nd and 4th Sundays. This saves on constant checking, and it makes toolsetting the items much quicker.

    (4) Once the submission date has passed, the DM team will review all enchantment requests, and email the player to confirm that it has been received, if it has been approved, and what reductions it has received in failure chance (if any). The items will then be made, and placed in the DM storage chest.

    (5) Once the item is in the DM chest any DM can handle the request. The DM who DOES handle the request will post in the DM forums to let other DMs know that it has been done.

    (6) If, within 1 week of the submission date ending, the player has not received the item, DM Skippy will email them to confirm a time and day when they (and the player receiving the item if they are sharing XP) will be available. If they cannot organise a time, then the enchantment will still be issued on a "first DM to see them" basis. If they CAN confirm a time, DM Skippy will attempt to meet with them himself or organise another DM to do so.

    (7) If by the end of the 2 week period for getting the item to the player, it has not been issued to them, the player will not be able to submit another enchantment until such time as the current enchantment is completed.



  • Free properties have been causing some confusion. Here are some examples/clarifications.

    @3925e8f162=Enchanting:

    Using higher quality crafted items will now offer bonuses for the enchanting process. These bonuses will vary depending upon the base material used, and will be FREE properties that do NOT count against the point total of the item. Note that properties cannot exceed their maximum limits.

    Silver Armour
    The basic enchantment rules state that armour can have a bonus vs. one racial group only. You must pick undead OR shapechangers.@3925e8f162=Enchanting:

    AC vs racial - 3 point cost
    Kobold, Outsider, Undead, etc.
    Max per item: +3
    Limit: one racial type

    The extra AC from the base item does stack with enchanted AC. So if you enchant your MW Silver Shield to be +2, the stats it'll have after enchanting are +2 AC, +3 AC vs. Undead (or +2, +3 AC vs. Shapechanger).

    Note that you can still only have one +3 vs. Racial from enchanted items, regardless of whether that +3 originates from base item property on top of +2 enchantment or from a +3 vs. enchantment.

    Silver Weapons
    The basic enchantment rules state that a weapon can have damage bonus vs. one racial group only. You must pick undead OR shapechangers.@3925e8f162=Enchanting:

    damage vs racial - 2 point cost
    Outsider, Undead, Orc, Abberation
    Max per item: +3
    Limit: one type

    Base Items with Skill Boni
    eg Gnomish Steel Fingerwires (+1 Disable Trap, +1 Open Lock, +1 Set Trap)
    If you were enchanting those gloves with +2AC you could take all the three skill bonuses. If you want to enchant the item with a skill bonus to a fourth skill you would have to drop one of them. This because the enchanting rules state that an item can only have skill bonus to 3 different skills. You could enchant +5 to two of those skills for a 5 point item but not +6 to them since that would give a total of +7 to the skills and no skill may be increased by more than 6 points. @3925e8f162=Enchanting:

    skill bonus - 1 point cost
    Max per item: +6 per skill
    Special: For each point spent, you gain 2 skillpoints. These can be divided between separate skills. Each skill may be increased to +6, but no item may increase more than 3 separate skills.
    Mithril armor and shield are an exception to this rule, and can retain all of the skill bonuses of the base item, plus up to three spearate skill bonuses that are enchanted.
    Restricion: No UMD

    Alternatives
    If the base item you are using doesn't offer inherent boni or you choose not to take them, you may then pick one of the optional free properties.
    @3925e8f162=Enchanting:

    Free Properties
    An item is allowed to have precisely one free property, these are properties I've deemed too unimportant to cost experience from someone high enough level to enchant.

    Light
    Bonus 0 level spell slot

    You couldn't have both the item properties and light, you have to pick one or the other.

    Weight Reduction
    Weight reduction comes as standard. If the base item you use offers this you are always entitled to recieve it. This is in addition to the free property you pick.



  • Example Enchantment Request

    PM subject: Item Enchantment - Harry Arse for Bear Arse

    Character Name: Harry Arse
    Character Receiving Item: Bear Arse (Harry's Brother)
    50-50 XP Hit: Yes (Bear Arse)
    Character Level: wizard 6
    Caster Level: 6
    Enchanting Facility: Spellweaver
    Spells Used: magic weapon, keen edge, flame weapon
    materials used: Masterwork brass longsword
    Item Level: 4
    Next enchantment: 11/01/09

    Steadfast: +1 enhancement longsword
    +1 enhancement (4)
    –----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Soon after Harry's induction into Spellweaver, he finds his way into the enchanting lab with a used, but well made brass longsword he and his brother managed to scrounge together the gold to purchase. Laying the sword on the table, Harry begins setting aside the various common components found in the lab to aid his work, all the while muttering to himself.

    "Don't you worry, brother. I'm proud you got into the militia, even if da doesn't...but that's how he earned the nickname we're cursed with...because he can't be arsed to do a damn thing!"

    Muttering more to himself, Harry wets a rag with an odd oil, flecks of silver mixed in with it. He slowly oils the blade entirely with this rag, until flecks of silver and oil shine from every angle.

    Nodding to himself, Harry begins to run a whetstone over the edge of the blade, incanting a spell of keen edge, the whetstone seemingly working the brass like butter, only delicate motions now stopping the sword from being ruined.

    When the edge is razor sharp, Harry applies a spell of magic weapon to transmute the sword back into a more durable form. Finally, he incants a spell of flame weapon, igniting the oil upon the sword as it bursts into searing flames. Giving it only a moment to burn, Harry quickly plunges the sword tip first into the waterbarrel nearby, steam rising as the enchanted water rapidly cools and alters the metal of the sword, locking in the enchantments.

    Raising the sword out slowly, Harry smiles broadly seeing the the newly enchanted sword.

    description: This copper colored sword bears scorch marks upon the surface of the blade, as if spending too long in a fire. Nonetheless, the blade seems excellently balanced with an extra sharp edge to it, sure to cleave through all but the toughest of hides.


    End example:

    Ultimately, this is the low end of the spectrum. Hopefully, this should show you roughly what I expect out of the narrative portion, and what will be required to receive the bonus. Note that this example did not use any material components (jasmal would have worked well), so it does not receive that bonus.



  • All enchanting submissions should use the following format.

    Email subject: Item Enchantment - EnchanterName for RecipientName

    Character Name:
    Character Receiving Item:
    50-50 XP Hit: (Yes/No)
    Character Level:
    Caster Level:
    Enchanting Facility:
    Spells Used:
    materials used:
    Item Level:
    Next enchantment:

    Item Name: full properties of the item
    (enchanted properties and point costs) (crafted bonuses)
    –---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Explanation of the enchanting process. You should include how the spells are used, how the materials are used, how the caster approaches the task, how the item is intended to function once created, as well as any other narrative information.

    The item should be unique in both design and function, meaning the item should reflect the maker, rather than being a +1 sword because you cast Greater Magic Weapon on it. This narrative should be between half a page to a page long.

    Description: place the description of the item that will appear when you examine it. This saves me quite a lot of time and trouble.



  • Restrictions and Clarifications

    Ability Bonus
    You may not exceed a +3 bonus from items to any one ability score. This includes guild items, enchanted items, store bought items, and event loot.

    You may not exceed a +5 bonus from items to any combination of stats. This includes guild items, enchanted items, store bought items, and event loot.

    Edit by DM Mimic: Enchanting an item that exceeds +3 or above to any one ability bonus, or +5 or above to any combination of ability bonuses is not allowed.

    Attack Bonus:
    Enchanting a base component that has +1AB bonus with a +1 physical damage bonus (2 points) will be represented by +1 enhancement bonus. This can then be incremented to +2 enhancement bonus with the standard +1 enhancement bonus (4 points).

    +3 items
    It is now possible to enchant +3 items vs a specific alignment or a specific race. Doing so will not be easy and will require a unique material component. As well, a character may only have +3 items vs ONE race or specific alignment, this only applies to enchanted items, dm event items are not restricted.

    Skills
    There is no current cap on what the total skill bonus a character may possess from items. Use discretion and it will stay this way.

    Use Magic Device is not an enchantable property due to the ease of exploitation. They are not permitted under either enchantment or guild items, though there are no restrictions for DM drops or existing items.

    Ammunition
    Ranged weapons such as darts and throwing axes, as well as ammunition such as bolts, arrows, and bullets, all receive a discount of 1/2 from any property given to them. This is to account for their finite nature.

    Physical Damage Resistance
    No character may possess physical damage resistance (bludgeoning, slashing, or piercing) from more than one guild/org or enchanted item. They are allowed others provided that they came from a DM event or other source. NO character may ever be found wearing or with immediate inventory access to all three types of DR under ANY circumstances. Your character may own all three types (no more than one from guild/org/enchanting) but may never carry them all at once. Physical DR to the same type of damage is not a violation of these rules, as they do not stack.

    Magic Damage/DR
    DR 5/- Magic is not an enchantable property, as it interferes with our rest system. Since the DR is banned, so too is the magic damage property on weapons.

    Weight Reduction
    This is no longer an enchantable property, though it is available through using higher quality base items.

    Base Items
    A base item is what is receiving the enchantment, there are various qualities that can be used, higher qualities receiving bonuses, while lower qualities might not be viable at all.

    Keep in mind that jewelry has no intrinsic bonuses, which necessitates any statistics coming from magic, and an already magic item cannot be further enchanted.

    Minimum Quality Base Items
    Feb 10/12 Edit by DM Mimic: Masterwork crafted items are required.
    metal: brass
    wood: oak
    tanning: anything
    ring: gold
    amulet: gold

    Free Properties
    An item is allowed to have precisely one free property, these are properties I've deemed too unimportant to cost experience from someone high enough level to enchant.

    Light
    Bonus 0 level spell slot

    Bonus Spell Slots
    No character may have more than 3 total bonus spell slots PER spell level.
    These may come from any combination of items. Enchanter needs to be able to cast spells of the spellslot they are enchanting. (So, a cleric level 9 cannot enchant druid slots, only cleric)

    +vs race/alignment

    These properties now only need to be purchased for what exceeds overlapping bonuses. If you have a longsword +1, +2 vs goblins, you will only be paying for +1 enhancement and +1 vs goblins. Base items that grant bonuses to AC or ehancement will automatically be 1 higher than overlapping bonuses. These will still never be able to exceed the maximum limits in place.



  • Using higher quality crafted items will now offer bonuses for the enchanting process. These bonuses will vary depending upon the base material used, and will be FREE properties that do NOT count against the point total of the item. Note that properties cannot exceed their maximum limits.

    Please thank Clandra for putting all this together.
