Downtime Activity: Work

Resources. Performing a job requires one workweek (five days) of effort.

Resolution.To determine how much money you earn, roll an ability check: Strength (Athletics), Dexterity (Acrobatics), Intelligence using a set of tools, Charisma (Performance), or Charisma using a musical instrument. Use the check that applies most to the kind of work you're doing. Consult the below table to see how much money you earned.

Complications. After resolving the above, roll a d10. On a 1, you suffer a complication determined by the GM.

Downtime Activity: Training

You can spend time with an instructor here to learn a new language or gain proficiency with a musical instrument, painter's supplies, glassblower's tools, potter's tools, weaver's tools, woodcarver's tools, or a disguise kit.

Resources. Receiving training in a language or tool typically takes at least ten workweeks (50 days), but this time is reduced by a number of workweeks equal to your Intelligence modifier. A negative Intelligence modifier doesn't increase the time required for training. In addition you need to find a teacher and pay 25 gp per workweek.

Resolution. At the end of your training, you learn that new language or gain that new proficiency.
