Feature: Chosen Craftsman

The workshops within the crafting temple are considered to hold the god's chosen craftsmen within their area, and you as one of their workers are held in high regard in your community. Your costumers are inclined to tip your blessed work, your colleagues may be eager to share favors. And should you fall on hard times, the temple clerics will provide you with food and lodgings. Should you be successful in your endeavors, however, you will be expected to donate to the temple, lest you fall out of favor with the gods.


The size of the crafting temple is determined by the size of the community it exists within, and as such the amount of trades practiced within may be limited. Every temple has to have at least one foundry, one blacksmith, one armorer, and one cooper in order to be considered a proper crafting temple, but can in addition contain any of the trades in the table below. Roll, or pick a trade from the table below:

Suggested Characteristics

With the exception of receiving a tad bit more praise from their peers, the life of a crafting temple artisan is similar to that of a guild artisan. Traits and motivations from the guild artisan background in the player handbook may be appropriate with a few modifications.
