The following are the types of downtime activity permitted in the Dusken Glade campaign.

  • For each day spent crafting, you accumulate 5gp worth of the items final value, in terms of item completion.
  • Multiple characters may pool their downtime efforts to craft a single item. This allows each craftsman to accumulate 5gp worth of value to the item per day thus spent. The DM determines a maximum of how many craftsmen can work on an item at a time, given the item and facilities.
  • Each day thus spent grants you a 1gp discount on lifestyle costs (min 0gp).

Magic Items (Consumable)

Cost: varies • Requirements: Ability to cast spells or Alchemy supplies proficiency (for potions, dusts, etc), schema for item type • Complications: 10%

Very Rare 250 days 20,000 gp CR 13-18
Legendary 500 days 100,000 gp CR 19+

Magic Items (Material-Based Magic)

Cost: varies • Requirements: Appropriate proficiency and tools, schema for item type • Complications: 10% per 5 tendays or fraction thereof

  • These are magical items whose powers come from what the item is made of rather than enchantments worked into it. Examples include adamantine and mithral items.
  • Cost varies by item created:
Rarity Time Cost Ingredients
Common 10 days Cost to Craft Item +25gp None
Uncommon 20 days Cost to Craft Item +100gp CR 1-3

9th 480 days 250,000 gp

Buying a Magic Item

Cost: 100gp + 10 days • Requirements: Settled area • Complications: 10% per tenday

  • Generally, this action involves putting the word out that you're interested in buying items, and getting a list of currently available items. It is harder to secure specific items, however.
  • The cost above is just to get a chance to roll to see what is available. Base Cost also includes a Wealthy Lifestyle as part of the expenditure, in order to impress potential sellers.
    • Gain a +1 bonus to Resolution Check for each 10 days additionally spent.
    • Gain a +1 bonus to Resolution Check for each 100gp additionally spent.
    • Bonus cannot exceed +10.
  • Resolution Check: Charisma (Persuasion) check.
Total Check Items Acquired
1-5 Roll 1d6 times on Magic Item Table A.
6-10 Roll 1d4 times on Magic Item Table B.
11-15 Roll 1d4 times on Magic Item Table C. Specific Item Common.
16-20 Roll 1d4 times on Magic Item Table D. Specific Item Uncommon.
21-25 Roll 1d4 times on Magic Item Table E. Specific Item Rare.
26-30 Roll 1d4 times on Magic Item Table F. Specific Item Very Rare.
31-35 Roll 1d4 times on Magic Item Table G. Specific Item Legendary.
36-40 Roll 1d4 times on Magic Item Table H.
41+ Roll 1d4 times on Magic Item Table I.
  • Seeking a Specific Item: If you are seeking a specific item, the item may be included among those available for sale if the Resolution Check result is high enough.
  • Large Urban Areas: In large urban areas, reduce cost to search to 50gp. Bonuses cost the same. Additionally, gain a +2 to +5 bonus to the Resolution Check based on the size and magic of the area (Waterdeep and Silverymoon are +5, Baldur's Gate is +4, etc). The maximum bonus to the Resolution Check is still a +10.
  • Price: Once it has been determined what items are available, determine the price for them:
Rarity Asking Price*
Common (1d6+1) x 10 gp
Uncommon 1d6 x 100 gp
Rare 2d10 x 1000 gp
Very Rare (1d4+1) x 10,000 gp
Legendary 2d6 x 25,000 gp

Asking Price is halved for consumable items.

Carousing

Cost: varies • Requirements: Settled area • Complications: 10% per tenday

  • Carousing involves a relaxing tenday of socializing, good food, and strong drink. It can be used to generate Contacts and Rumors.
  • Cost is based on the strata of society:
    • Lower Class: 10 gp + 10 days. Includes cost of Modest Lifestyle.
    • Middle Class: 50gp + 10 days. Includes cost of Comfortable Lifestyle.
    • Upper Class: 250gp + 10 days. Includes cost of Wealthy Lifestyle. May only be taken by nobles and others with appropriate backgrounds, or by those with a disguise kit and the Deception skill.
Class Cost Time Notes
Lower 10gp 10 days Includes cost of Modest Lifestyle.
Middle 50gp 10 days Includes cost of Comfortable Lifestyle.
Upper 250 10 days Includes cost of Wealthy Lifestyle. May only be taken by nobles and others with appropriate backgrounds, or by those with a disguise kit and the Deception skill.
  • Resolution Check: Charisma (Persuasion) or Charisma (Deception) check. May be used to generate Contacts or Rumors.
Total Check Result
1-5 Character has made a hostile contact.
6-10 Character has made no new contacts, or one rumor.
11-15 Character has made an allied contact, or two rumors.
16-20 Character has made two allied contacts, or three rumors.
21+ Character has made three allied contacts, or four rumors.
  • Contacts: If generating Contacts, these are individuals of some impact in that part of town. Contacts can be named and listed by their type, or left undetailed to be added as useful and needed. A Contact can be used as an ongoing source of Rumors. They can also be used to get a favor, but doing so "expends" the Contact (though they can be re-acquired through Carousing later). (May have a maximum number of unnamed Contacts equal to 1 + Charisma modifier.)
    • Lower Class: Criminals, laborers, mercenaries, town guard, and other folk who frequent the cheapest taverns in town.
    • Middle Class: Guild members, spellcasters, town officials, and other folk who frequent well-kept establishments.
    • Upper Class: Nobles and their retainers, guildmasters, merchant princes, and other community leaders who can be found at formal banquets, noble parties, state dinners, and the like.

Crime

Cost: 25gp + 10 days • Requirements: Settled area • Complications: Based on failed Resolution Checks.

  • A tenday spent scouting, planning, and executing a crime, con, or heist.
  • Choose your DC. The higher the DC, the more difficult the crime, but the bigger the payout.
DC Target Payout
10 Robbery of a struggling merchant or household. 50gp if successful.
15 Robbery of a prosperous merchant or household. 100gp if successful.
20 Robbery of a noble or organization. 200gp if successful.
25 Robbery of one of the richest figures or organizations in area. 1000gp if successful.
  • Resolution Checks: Must make three checks, at chosen DC. Dexterity (Stealth) • Dexterity (Thieves' Tools) • Choice of Intelligence (Investigation), Wisdom (Perception), or Charisma (Deception).
    • All Three Fail: Character is caught and jailed. Must pay a fine equal to profit the crime would have earned, and spend one tenday in gaol or hard labor for each 25gp of the fine.
    • One Success: Crime fails. Complication results.
    • Two Successes: Crime is partially successful, netting half normal worth. Complication results if a Rival is crime or law enforcement.
    • Three Successes: Crime is successful, gaining full value of heist.
Success Results
Zero Successes Character is caught and jailed. Must pay a fine equal to profit the crime would have earned, and spend one tenday in gaol or hard labor for each 25gp of the fine.
One Success Crime fails. Complication results.

Cost: varies • Requirements: varies • Complications: 0%

  • This action is used to establish a new business, using the Business Operation rules.

  • Once established, businesses run themselves, although owners may boost their success by taking the Work downtime action on behalf of that business.

Gambling

Cost: 10gp (minimum) + 10 days • Requirements: None • Complications: 10% per tenday; add +5% per 100gp to stake

  • A tenday spent finding the best betting locales, discovering the upcoming games or places, and getting invitations to them. Coin is the stake for the gambling; may choose to bet up to 1000gp.
  • Resolution Check: Make three checks: Wisdom (Insight) • Charisma (Deception) • Charisma (Intimidation)
    • Cheating: May choose to cheat, substituting one of the above rolls for a Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) test instead. Doubles base Complication chance to 20% however.
    • DC for each is equal to 5 + 2d10.
  • Results are based on total number of successes.
Success Results
Zero Successes Lose all the money bet, plus accrue a debt equal to the stake again.
One Success Regain half stake.
Two Successes Regain 150% of stake.

Harper Cell Development
