Expanded Crafting -Theperfect25
Expanded Crafting is an add on to the Crafting rules of Dnd. Crafting for now magical items is very limited and this gives a much broader use for creating weapons and armor. Allowing for more customization with gear. Even able to make some non-magical items compete with some of the low enchanted items. If the Crafter is skilled enough that is.
When creating Weapons and armor there is usually only the ability to create a Single quality of Masterwork. There are now 5 qualities able to give to any weapons and armor, giving a variety of customization in regards to how a weapon or armor works. Giving crafters the ability to make unique items with far more variety. An enchanted weapon is a minimum of Exceptional quality.
The qualities of the items are common, exceptional, superior, expert, masterwork. Each quality giving enhancement slots used to enhance the gear instead of the usual +1 enhancement bonus to hit.With common receiving no enhancement slot and each following quality receiving an additional slot. With exceptional receiving 1, superior 2, expert 3, masterwork 4.
If a property given to a weapon or armor overlaps, such as that with a Glaive with Reach receiving the upgrade for inclusive reach. The weapon would only cost 1 enhancement slot because the weapon itself naturally has the reach ability.

Re: Expanded Crafting -Theperfect25
This seems rather intrituing... I'm wondering how a Chainblade, or a Bladed Gauntlet would be made with this system...
Chainblades are Exotic 1 handed reach weapons, dealing 1d8 18-20 x2 S/P damage, for example. It's one of my favorite weapons to use in most games, as are Bladed Gauntlets, Greatbows, Dragonbone Bows, Warbows, Great Crossbows, and other 'exotic' weapons...
