9.5.2 Fletching

The talent of Fletching enables those who have learned it to craft a    
variey of bows, as well as the arrows shot from them.

To become a Fletcher, you must visit the master Fletcher of Aetolia,    
Rodallo. Located in the Grand College of Aetolia, Rodallo will teach you
all he knows of Fletching for a fee of 75 credits. Once you have learned
this Talent, you will be as skilled as any other Fletcher, though your  
creativity will be the ultimate test.                                   

To create a fletching plan, there are several steps you should follow.

1) Purchase a blank fletching sketch from Rodallo.

2) Acquire the fletching plan of the same type as the bow you wish to   
design, then DESIGN <sketch> COPY <plan>. This will make a copy of the  
existing plan on your blank sketch. DESIGN <sketch> ERASE will          
completely erase a sketch, allowing you to start fresh.                 

3) Customize your sketch's appearance when held, when viewed in a room, 
and when examined closely. DESIGN will give you the full range of       
syntaxes to do so.                                                      

4) Take your design sketch to a craft guild office and DESIGN <sketch>  
SUBMIT it for evaluation. The craft guild will review your sketch and   
make a plan from it if the design is approved.                          

5) When the plan is finished, you will be notified by letter that your  
plan is ready to pick up. Return to the craft guild office and DESIGN   
REQUEST <plan>, using the plan number specified in the letter from the  
craft guild. The craft guild charges a fee for the creation of the plan.

Use DESIGN LIST to list all of the unsubmitted sketches you are holding,
and FLETCHCRAFT PLANS to view all of the plans you hold.

To craft one of your custom plans, simply FLETCHCRAFT CUSTOM <plan>,    
making sure to have all of the requisite commodities on hand.
