Crafters who set out to master a profession discover skills every bit as valuable as swordplay or spellcraft. They can create weapons, tools and magic potions, bandage wounds, harvest precious materials, inscribe ancient runes of power, and more. Of course, truly canny professionals think bigger than outfitting themselves. When they’re not supplementing their own arsenal, they’ll be making a profit supplementing someone else’s.
