Crafts used to be the skills most people would rely on for their survival during the middle-ages. Today, they're the skills through which many people who have never gone to college can make a living. These include Blacksmithing (metalworking through 'old'/cheap methods), Bowyery, Brewing (alcohol), Carpentry (creating furniture from wood), Clothesmaking, Fletching, Farming (planting, growing, harvesting), Goldsmithing (working of soft, precious metals), Gunsmithing, Handloading (including 'ball' slug casting), Leatherworking (includes similar non-cloth materials), Machining (metalworking through 'modern'/expensive methods), Swordsmithing, and Stonemasonry. This list is not exhaustive. If you think something should be included, please feel free to ask. Areas that are too broad may be rejected; areas that are more specific are likely to be approved, but this is to the character's detriment.
