Crafting skills ?

Is it my imagination or is the duration required to craft items borked, according to the Craft rules as written ?

Totally Borked.

Not really Mongoose's fault. The craft rules in Conan are taken directly from the SRD and the d20 craft rules are widely regarded as useless.

If you care to look you can find dozens of alt-craft rules out there. I've never really found a set that I felt was both "realistic" and that didn't make my head hurt.

What I do? I just assign an ad-hoc time frame with better results for higher rolls. Yeah its cheap but crafting is mostly a downtime activity anyway and the ammount of downtime palyers get is an ad-hoc GM decision anyway.

Later.

I totally subscribe to this school of thought.

I think that d20 craft rules should be revised, they are just insanely unrealistic...

I wasnt blaming Mongoose, I remember the same sillyness in 3.5. I thought I read a while ago someones alternate craft system on this board.

thanks,
