    General skills are those which can be used by a character during an Eldritch event. They represent your character’s ability to do or know a thing to a greater or lesser extent. Some in-game scenarios may require skills, as in the case of Perception and Tracking, in order to glean some privileged information or complete an encounter's objective. However, it should be made clear that no scenario will ever require a skill to successfully resolve it. It just might be that some aspect of the scenario is more difficult to resolve as a result. That is, skills are intended to give players an advantage in, or provide additional insights into any given scenario, or encounter. Note that if you do not want the information shared with you by a game marshal to be made immediately available to other characters, it is your job to handle the request as discreetly as required.

    Skills in Eldritch are abstractions of actions that your character can take in the game world. Skills fall under two main types, General and Martial. It is the design philosophy and intent of the skill system to create a means by which players can have immersive and meaningful interaction with the game world, while keeping jargon and complicated mechanics to a minimum. As such, the basic components of each skill type, and their corresponding list of skills are as follows.

S

Medicine

     Characters with the Medicine skill, or any related healing abilities will need to properly roleplay the application of such skills and possess a Chiurgeon’s Kit. This kit should include some period-appropriate bandages, and the various accouterments of a Medieval healer. Note that you may not apply any skills that require a Chirugeon’s Kit without the physical props, i.e. bandages, etc… Make sure to bring plenty to game! While these skills and abilities include a specific duration, the role play aspect of these entail that you act out the actions of applying rudimentary first aid, from wrapping other players with bandages, to assessing their injuries, to applying splints. Any physical role play associated with these skills and abilities needs to be done at the discretion of the target player.

Academics & Lore

    The Academics and Lore skills work hand in hand to represent a character's level of expertise or knowledge in a given subject. Lores are in-game props that are comprised of a title, a type (see below), a level being 1 through 3, and some amount of prerequisites required to open the lore prop and access the contents inside. Your character must have the prerequisites listed on the front of the lore prop in order to open the seal and read the information contained therein. Your character's level of the Academics general skill must also meet or exceed the level of the lore prop. For example, if the lore type and level is Religion - 2 (as will be noted on the front of the lore prop), your character must have Academics - 2, in addition to any other listed prerequisites, in order to access the information inside the lore prop.

The lore skills/levels are:

  • History 1 - 3

  • Religion 1 - 3

  • Languages 1 - 3

  • The Vale 1 - 3

  • The Welkin 1 - 3

  • Mythology 1 - 3

  • Metaphysics 1 - 3

    Once you've opened a lore prop, you will discover that it contains a write-up on some aspect of the Eldritch world. Lore props are also used to acquire additional levels in a given lore skill type (per the list above). Remember, acquiring levels in a given lore type is good in that they may help to satisfy the prerequisites of some yet-to-be-discovered lore prop. In addition to providing cool and unique knowledge about the game world, you'll need more lores in order to purchase levels in other lore skills.

    

General Skills

Schematics

    Schematics are documents that may be found or purchased at Eldritch events (with in-game currency of course) and are a meta-representation of the knowledge required to produce a finished item. Each schematic contains the following:

  • The crafting skill and the corresponding level of that skill required to produce the item

  • The title and description of the item.

  • The in-game mechanical benefits, when applicable.

  • The required prop to physically represent the item, if applicable.

  • The number and type of gathering resources required to produce the item

    As noted, schematics will be of varying levels and will require that the crafter of the item be of at least the level designated on the schematic. Upon the purchase of any crafting general skill at level 1, the character will receive all level 1 schematics. At higher levels, characters will receive only one schematic at the corresponding level. Other schematics will either need to be found or purchased at events. Once a schematic is assigned to a character as an item in their inventory, it may not be transferred. Unassigned schematics however, may be sold or transferred as in-game items until such a time as they are added to a character’s inventory, as stated previously. Finally, once the schematic and required resources are obtained, take them over to the corresponding crafting station, log your name and other required information in the crafting book, and obtain the tag for the item. Note that there will be a depository for the resources used in crafting the item.

Schematic.png

Lore Skills

    Lore skills are gained via the the acquisition of lore props at Eldritch events. Lore props can be redeemed, per the conversions in the table 1.1 below, to purchase a level of a matching lore type, per the list above. For example, History - 1 can be purchased for 4, History - 1 lore props. Your character can then access any lore prop that requires History - 1 as a prerequisite. Finally, any lore skill levels purchased must use lore props of the same level.

Example - Metaphysics

    Gwydeon would like to work his way up to the Metaphysics 3 lore skill. In order to do so, he'll need to purchase up to Academics 3 and find a total of 15 Metaphysics lores across the three different levels of lores that there are. So now that his path is laid out before him, Gwydeon will need to start the hunt for the lores he needs. In order to get to Metaphysics 1, Gwydeon will need to first purchase the Academics 1 General skill, and then proceed with acquiring lore props per the requirements detailed in the simple table below.

You can use the following statement to help you properly interpret the table:

"In order to get <lore skill and level>, I need <# lore props> from lore props of <lore prop level>."

Espionage

    The Espionage skill allows a character to become an information broker, dealing and trading in the secrets of the realm. Every level of espionage purchased will grant you some number of points. You can use these points at check-in to draw from a rumors box. Each rumor is worth its level in value, i.e. level 1 costs 1, level 2 costs 2, level 3 costs 3. You may spend your points in any combination that you wish. These rumors contain information that is relevant to planned content at the present event. The level of the rumor also corresponds to the "quality" of information contained therein. Level 1 rumors will likely be more vague or partly incorrect, while a level 3 rumor will contain rare or privileged information, or perhaps even confirm some erroneous detail of a lower cost rumor!

Retainers

Some archetypes, such as nobles and cirque, have skills that allow the purchase of what are called Retainer slots. These allow you to accept retainers - members of your entourage, who in the game space, actually provide some tangible benefit per the description on their archetype card. For each slot you purchase, you may accept a new retainer. A retainer must agree to hand off their retainer card to you, after which point, you will pay them the amount listed on the card under Salary, every event, in exchange for the listed Retainer Benefit. All retainer benefits are collected at check-in for any cards held in this way. Note that to collect a retainer benefit, the player MUST be present at the event.

Notes:

-1. Nobles can only retainer to other Nobles of higher rank.
2. Nobles, Knights, and Aurons cannot employ Cirque.

3. Cirque cannot retain Nobles, Knights, Aurons, or Vigil.

4. Aurons can only retain non-advanced archetypes and Knights.

    These letters are used to "pick" a given lock by matching one of the letters on the lockpick card with one of those on the lock tag itself. Each level of the lockpicking skill allows you to access the additional letters associated with the corresponding level, i.e. if you have Disable Device - 2, you can use any one of the letters from Level 1 or Level 2 on a given lock. In the case of the card above, this would be the letters A, C, I, or J. You may not use multiple letters from a card in picking a lock. Each card counts towards only one letter in the lock's code, though any cards you've set aside as a result of a lockpicking draw are interchangeable. See an example lock below.

Lockpicking

    Lockpicking, allows a player to physically represent the action of picking a lock via the use of the Eldritch-provided lockpicking deck. Each lock in Eldritch will come with a card, containing a short, random string of letters. Each card in a lockpicking deck contains a series of letters associated with three different levels, as seen in the graphic below.

    In the example lock above, you would need to draw a lockpicking card with the letter A, and another with the letter D in order to open the lock. Each draw of a lockpicking card in this way requires the use of a lockpicking kit item. Each lockpicking kit comes with 10 uses and can be purchased from in-game vendors or crafted per the corresponding skills. You may receive one lockpicking kit upon purchase of the skill.

Fig 1.1 - Resource Types

Influence

    Many are familiar with money or resources as a way to accomplish things, but the currency of power and influence is also useful. At Eldritch, we have tried to represent this with a currency known as Influence. Influence is identified at the game as a white poker chip with a crown graphic on it. Each of these is worth 1 Influence point. These coins can be traded between players and NPCs freely, but they cannot be stolen from other players or NPCs as they are not an actual currency in the game world. When exchanging influence with another player, good terminology to use would be: "Would you aid me with some of your influence?" or "Could you perhaps grant me some favor?". Players are free to show the coins to the players involved so they can see how much they have or they are offering. Players who are requesting influence can say a number or, more preferably, make a hand gesture or write down a value. Influence can be used for a great many things including Interactive Events, promotion of advanced archetypes, and influencing the game world. It could take the form of a bribe or offer, but many NPCs will react more favorably to requests if you are willing to put some influence behind your words.

Interactive Events

    One of the key entertainment mechanisms of Eldritch are Interactive Events. These Interactive Events are opportunities for players to shape the world and the story the way their character or faction might want it. We want to tell awesome stories at Eldritch, but we also want players to feel like they have a part in those stories and a way of influencing their outcome. Below, we have broken these out into how you should expect to experience these at events. While we are making no promises as to how many of these Interactive Events will happen per event, we feel confident that players will see an average of 2-3 per event.

  • Settlement Events - The Annwyn is unexplored and part of the fun of the game will be exploring the environment and finding new things. Settlement Events are designed for players to expand the useable game space via the exploration and ‘unlocking’ of new areas. Generally, Settlement Events will be offered throughout the natural course of the campaign as encounters or as components of plots, though some may also need additional requirements met. Newly discovered and unlocked areas generally provide a bonus to a single player or game-wide and should be claimed by one of the represented noble houses. Settled lands can also unlock new lands to settle, mods, objects, and other Interactive Events. Other events will involve the construction of simulated areas to add potential in-game benefits, such as additional gathering opportunities, for some or many other players in the game space. When the players arrive in the Annwyn, not all of what they need to be successful and achieve their goals will be readily available. Construction Projects are ways for players to build these simulated areas and improve their in-game situation. Construction events will almost always involve both an amount of money and a number of raw resources.


    All available Construction Projects will be announced at the start of game, along with what is required for successful completion of the project, and its benefits if completed. For the rest of the weekend, a box with the project’s name on it will be available at monster town. Players can come to monster town, fill out a small sheet, and then deposit both the sheet and their resources/coin in the box using an envelope.
Staff will tally up the total in the box at the end of the weekend and, if the project has been completed, it will be revealed during closing announcements. Any benefits will begin the following event. Projects that fail to finish will simply roll over to the next event and retain the number of resources already invested. Players are encouraged to coordinate to make sure they get the correct number of resources in the box.

 

 

       Example Settlement Event 1:

    According to a scout, an abandoned farm has been spotted not far from here. The characters then get a Quest Waypoint tag that indicates they should go explore the farm and see if it can be claimed. When the characters get there, they discover Old Farmer Olsen is hunkered down with his bandit boys and they take violent objection to the group's claim on the area. A fight ensues and Olsen and his boys are defeated. The farmstead is now able to be claimed by a noble house. Once it has been claimed, the noble gets a card that grants an additional +10 cloth at check-in. This card can be given to anyone of the noble’s choosing or the noble can keep the card for themselves.

 

       Example Settlement Event 2:

    It is announced that the Red Barn will be available as a project for players to construct this event. The Red Barn costs 3 gold, 100 wood, and 50 metal to construct. Once it is built the players can use horses to ride around the Annwyn without fear of getting attacked. The Red Barn box is placed out at monster town and players can deposit their project contributions into said box. If the players place the appropriate amounts in the box, the Red Barn Project will be finished and the benefit will begin the following event. If the players fail to get all of the necessary components to complete it, the Red Barn will not be built next game but any resources used will remain.

Gathering & Crafting

    The gathering of raw materials for trade or as components in the production of finished goods is a key pillar in the economy of Arnesse. The gathering and crafting systems in Eldritch work hand in hand to supply both raw materials for trade, and those items necessary to facilitate a rich market for finished goods that can be used at game by your character. The process of gathering raw resources to trade or as components in finished goods is as follows. Like other General Skills, you will purchase the desired level of the Gathering skill. Each level allows you to choose 3 random resources at check-in every event. Higher levels allow you to get more pulls from the box.

    All of these resources are trade-able for in-game currency or may be used in the production of finished goods. The process of utilizing these raw materials to produce a finished, in-game item is two-fold:

  • A character must have the level of crafting skill, as indicated by the corresponding item schematic, necessary to produce the desired item or utilize the crafting talents of another to produce the item for them. You will also find finished goods for sale at events.

  • Whomever ends up crafting the item must have the required schematic and the resources required. Items will have varying numbers and varieties of required resources. Note that when having someone else craft your item, there will likely be a labor fee associated with crafting the item. This is noted on the Cirque’s Market Price sheet located on the website.

Lockpicking FAQ

1. You will receive one of four random lockpicking decks upon purchasing this skill. Every deck can open any lock given enough draws. There are masterwork kits and other items that may likewise enhance your ability.

2. When drawing from your deck to pick a lock, you do not reshuffle following a draw. Keep drawing until you run out of lockpicking kit uses, you crack the lock, or you decide to quit. If you run out of cards, simply shuffle and continue drawing until one of the previous conditions is met.

3. Lock codes will be generated at random. These are usually purchased from in-game merchants or artificers.

4. Lock codes on their tags are intentionally tiny. This represents your character having to examine the inner workings of the lock before attempting to crack it.

So now, you could use two more staggers, two more stuns, or a stagger and a stun. 2. Can wield a weapon in both hands, with the exception of a bow. 3. May be applied to any known weapon skill.
