Art ability (Talent, M20)

Postby Dominic Chandler » Thu Aug 25, 2016 11:29 am

Doing my sheet, I noticed that the Art ability is not listed under the template you've provided, and I didn't see it mentioned in the Abilities section. Is the Art ability being used, or has it been merged into something else?

I'm hoping not Crafts, because that would throw off my 13/9/5. :D

Art was divided into Performance, expression, and Crafts. Crafts covers the physical arts, painting, sculpting... Performance covers the performing arts. Expression covers writing poetry and the like.

Seen this ruled several different ways, so thought I should ask. Are all crafts based off a single attribute or does the specific craft you are trying to do alter the attribute you are using?

On the note of seen-this-different-ways, if you're a painter and a chef, do you have to take Crafts (Paint) and Crafts (Cooking), or can you take Crafts once to cover both of them? Same with Performance and Expression and what not.

You do not have to buy Crafts(paint) and Crafts(cooking) separately and once you reach level four in crafts, expression, performance, etc... you can buy multiple specialties if you want, but you do not have to know different uses of the skill. As far as rolls for crafts I will discuss with Archmage tomorrow on how exactly crafts will be rolled.

For crafts the type of work you will be doing effects which attribute you will roll.

So Performance (Dance) would be Dex, something like Performance (acting) would probably be Charisma, and something like Performance (Instrument) would be Dex if you were actually playing, or Int if you were composing a piece, or something along those lines?

Generally performance is rolled using social stats (manipulation, charisma, maybe appearance) and different attributes would have different effects upon success. For crafts blacksmithing would strength, most others would be dexterity or intelligence.
