  1. My hack Fourth World, being based on Earthdawn, wherein making things is proof that you haven’t been possessed, contains some minor rules for making stuff.

    “I wrote this a while ago. You can have it.

    Crafting Magic Items

    When you engineer a design for a magical item (weapon, armor, artifact, etc) tell the GM what you aim to accomplish. The GM will tell you three or four of the following;

    You’ll need to disenchant ________ first.

    You’ll need the aid of __________.

    You’ll need to find some __________ to use.

    It’ll take an especially long time to prepare.

    It’ll be unusually dangerous to craft.

    You’ll need to craft it someplace special.

    When you imbue a crafted item with power spend XP and roll+XP spent. On a 10+ choose two tags to imbue the item with. On a 7-9 choose one and the GM will choose one, too.

    New Tags

    – glamoured (with a thought from the wielder, this item can take on the form of something else)

    – indestructable (the item cannot be destroyed by mortal means)

    – shadow (the item gives off clouds of smoky darkness)

    – energy aura (the item is tangible to ghosts, spirits, etc)

    – holy (the item is imbued with divine power, either generally or specifically)

    – unholy (the item is imbued with energies antithetical to the gods and their works)

    – bane (the item is particularly hateful to creatures of a particular race or creed)

    – defender (the item grants +1 armor)

    – fiery (the item burns with a powerful fire that does not harm the wielder)

    – icy (the object is fridged and freezing with a cold that does not harm the wielder)

    – lightning (the object is possessed of a powerful electric charge that does not harm the wielder)

    – hurled (the item gains +thrown, no matter the form it takes)

    – thunderous (when struck, the item emits a blast of sound that does not harm the wielder)

    – chaos-born (the item has an unstable form and can destabilize matter around it)

    – lawful (the item is imbued with lawful energy, and gives form to the unformed)

    – wounding (wounds inflicted by the item or in its presence cannot be healed by natural means)

    – light (the item emits a brilliant light)”

  3. I dunno about a homebrew craft system, but just lemme say as a smith myself; That guy is very lucky to have two assistants that are proficient with 10lb sledges 😛
