Rhy'din is driven by many things, but nothing more than the steady flow of gold. Money wakes the world go round and within our Story line is no exception. Gold is used to purchase services or goods everywhere. Gold is earned through various methods:
Participation in Spars and Bestiaries
Trades of goods
Trades of services
Those who delve into a profession take on a craft in which they can produce goods to place for sale. Be it armor, a keen sword, medical healing herbs, even magical tomes and spells are all applicable crafts.
Becoming Adept in a Profession
If you'd like your character to be able to efficiently take on a profession, you can do so one of two ways:
Purchase professional skills on your character sheet
Become someone's apprentice
Note, learning under someone else for free won't allow you to reach the higher levels of your profession. You'll have to purchase the skills on your own.
Each Profession has different items you can make, and professional level required. An apprentice blacksmith won't be able to produce top quality items like a Grandmaster would! As you delve deeper into professional mastery, you'll unlock powerful crafts highly sought after by the general populace. You'll also earn quite a bit more coin for it, as well. Creating top quality works of art take time though! As such, you'll me limited to how many of each item you can make each month. Certain racial skills can increase your work speed, however.
Cost to Create - This is how much you'll need to pay in order to create an item.
Max Sell Price - This is the set maximum you are allowed to sell an item for before others (NPCs) will undercut you.
Max Per Month - This is the limit of how many of a specific item you can create per month.
