Justin's Easy Poison Making and Crafting Guide

Craft (INT)

According to page 70-71 of the Players Hand Book.

Earn half your craft check per week making an honest living.

Crafting an item costs one third of the items listed cost for raw materials.

When crafting, roll check, if it succeeds multiply result of check by the DC to craft the item. If the result equals the full price of the item, in silver pieces, then you have crafted it in one week, otherwise it represents the progress toward completion at the end of the week.

Cost: 1/3 of list.
(Craft Check) x (Craft DC) = (Full Price of Item in SP)

Fail check by 4, no progress. Fail check by 5 or more then ruin half of raw materials and half to pay half of the materials cost again.

Poison Making

According to page 97-98 of the Complete Adventurer.

Resource cost is one sixth the list price for poisons with readily available ingredients, otherwise raw materials cost three quarters of the list price.

Craft check equation is figured in gold.

Cost: 1/6 of list for common ingredients or 3/4 of list for rare.
(Craft Check) x Craft DC) = (Full Price of Item in GP)
