Below is a chart showing the details of the Crafting Skill in the Fyxt RPG. The first column shows the minimum Character Tier/Character Level to use the item. Next, is the Crafting Skill Check need to create the Fyxt RPF Item and then the cost to do so. The Effect/Step and Power Cap of Item shows the limits of the strength of the effects that can be on the item. The last column shows an easy conversion chart to create the item as a Disposable Fyxt RPG Item instead.

Don’t worry about memorizing this chart. This is simply here to help players initially plan their Fyxt RPG Items. To craft Fyxt RPG Items players will use the Fyxt RPG Item Generator. The Fyxt RPG Item Generator will do all the heavy work of calculating all of the factors that goes into creating an item.

Cost of Crafting Advanced Items

Characters crafting items do so for a 10% discount. Example: A +1 to Attack Sword would cost 2,000 to buy. A character can craft this item for 1,800.

Time Needed for Crafting Advanced Items

It takes 1 full day per tier to create a permanent advanced item. Example: It will take three days to create a suit of full plate armor which grants the player character a +3 to all Defenses. It takes 1 full day per tier to craft 10 Disposable Items. Example: It will take six days to craft 20 tier 3 healing stims.

Characters must have time during the game for crafting. Characters cannot be involved in other things. The GM has final say on if crafting can happen and how long the crafting will take.

Crafting the Advanced Item

If it is determined the character will have time to craft, the player will roll one Crafting Skill Check for the item. One roll will also be used if crafting a set of Disposable Items.

Successful Crafting Skill Check

The character is now indisposed and unable to do anything else other than crafting. In some cases the GM may allow other minor outside activity. The crafting process takes 1/2 of a day. In the case of days with 24 hours the character must spend 12 hours of it crafting.

Critical Crafting Skill Success

If the Craft Skill Check is a natural 20, and your roll succeeds in crafting the item, then you will only cost you 50% of the total value to create instead of 90%.

Failed Crafting Skill Check

On a failed Craft Skill Check the character not create the item. Only one check may be performed per day. If the player fails a Crafting Skill Check that character will lose 10% of the total value in the attempt. If the players Crafting Skill Check is failed by rolling less than the next tier lower, the character will lose 25% of the total value in the attempt. Example: If a player is trying to create a +7 Advanced Fyxt RPG Item, the player will need a Crafting Skill Check of a 80. If the player’s Crafting Skill Check is 64 or less their character will lose 25% of the total.

Fumbled Crafting Skill Failure

If the Crafting Skill Check is a natural 1, then the crafting attempt will cost the character 50% of the total value of the Advanced Fyxt RPG Item.

Crafting Disposable Items

Disposable Items are items that are used once and then are useless. Disposable Items are things like potions, medical kits, grenades, and food or drink that grant a player a bonus. Fyxt RPG Disposable Items do not have any permanent effects. They only grant character bonuses when they are used. Many Disposable Items have instant effects such as healing a player character. Disposable Items can have any number of effects and are not limited to a specific effect. Disposable Items can also have things like +1 Attack on them. This will grant a character a bonus to their next Action.

Disposable Items are also items that have a limited number of uses such as wands or medical stimulant packs. These items may have 5, 10, or more uses and then they become useless. Each use is treated as a separate Disposable Item.

When crafting Disposable Items they can be created at a 10 to 1 time ratio. This means that in the same amount of time it would take a character to craft a +1 Attack Rifle they could also create 10 +1 Attack Potions.

Legendary Crafting Exceptions

When and if a character wants to craft the most amazing and powerful Fyxt RPG items, Legendary Items, there are a couple differences. First, any player needs to make sure that the GM will allow characters to make Fyxt RPG Legendary Items. They are extremely powerful and can easily unbalance the carefully designed Fyxt RPG. However, it can be quite fun to have access to a Fyxt RPG Legendary Item for a few adventures. If the GM does allow player characters to make Legendary Fyxt RPG Items they need to follow the rules below.

  1. The Crafting Skill Check needed will be twice what the regular skill check would be.
  2. The cost for crafting a Legendary Item is twice what it is to craft any other item.

Due to the immense power of Legendary Items they are very difficult and expensive to create.

The Fyxt RPG Crafting Skill can be one of the most powerful and fun Skills to use in the Fyxt RPG. The Fyxt RPG has an extremely flexible and versatile item system in the game that make the possibilities of items limitless. Best of all players of the Fyxt RPG do not have to work out all of the Crafting Skill details themselves.
