9.5.5 The talent of Ventier

The talent of Ventier is the time-honored craft of creating wind instruments, as well as reeds. The fifer and the bugler of your wartime military units have now been gifted with the means to stir your militia to battle!                                                              

To become a Ventier, you must visit the master Ventier of Aetolia, Philippa. Located in the Grand College of Aetolia, she will teach you all she knows of Ventier for a fee of 75 credits. Once you have learned this Talent, you will be as skilled as any other Ventier, but your own personal crafting style will be the ultimate test of your creativity.   

To create a wind instrument, there are several steps you should follow:

1) Purchase a blank design pattern using DESIGN REQUEST.

2) Identify the pattern you wish to copy for the specific item you need from the Ventier shop, then DESIGN <your new pattern> COPY <pattern to be copied>. This will make a copy of the existing pattern layout on your blank pattern.

3) Customize your pattern's various requirements. DESIGN VENTIER will give you a list of useful commands for this and DESIGN by itself will list all other essential commands.

4) Take your design pattern to a craft guild office and DESIGN <pattern> SUBMIT it for evaluation. The mortal approvers will review your pattern according to our standards and make a pattern from it if the design is approved.

5)  When the design is approved, you will be notified by message or prompt in-game. Return to the craft guild office and DESIGN <pattern> PAY FEE to gain access to your ready-to-use pattern! The craft guild charges a fee for the creation of the design.

Use DESIGN LIST to list all of the patterns you have access to. To create an item, you'd simply use CRAFT <pattern> while holding the appropriate materials.
