Career Progression

During their apprenticeship, they learn how to build magic bone weapons and items out of bone. This process takes about eight years, during their final year the apprentice learns how to make large things such as buildings and siege weapons. The final rite of passage to become a true bonesmith is to carve your own unique set of tools with their own runes and spells. After becoming a bonesmith most join a guild.
