Downtime Activity: Training

You can spend time with an instructor here to gain proficiency with Woodcarver's Tools.

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.

Downtime Activity: Crafting

If you are proficient in Woodcarver's Tools and you're on good terms with the proprietor of this establishment, you can use the facilities here to create mundane wooden weapons like bows, crossbows, and arrows.

Resources. Crafting an item requires you raw materials worth half the item's selling cost. The time in workweeks required to craft an item is its base price in gold pieces divided by 50. You can create multiple items in a workweek if the total cost of those items is 50 gp or lower. Items that cost more than 50 gp can be completed over long periods of time, as long as that work in progress is stored in a safe location.

Multiple characters can combine their efforts. Divide the time needed to create an item by the number of players working on it. A particularly tiny item, like a ring, might only allow one or two workers at a time, whereas a larger, more complex item might allow for four or more workers. A character must be proficient with the proper tools to craft an item and must have access to proper equipment.

Resolution. Once the proper materials are collected and the proper time has been spent, you successfully craft the item. You can sell the crafted item at its listed price if you so desire.

Downtime Activity: Work

You can find temporary employment at this establishment.

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.
