The 'leathercraft' skill allows you manufacture leather armor and other
items from hides harvested with the 'skinning' skill. Leather equipment
can be made relatively quickly and does not require a specialized
workshop or tools. Even a hide large enough to be wrapped around your
body will be improved by fashioning it into a proper cloak. Armor can
also be made from the shells harvested from insects and other arthropods,
though slings can only be made from pliant, flexible hides.
You can use the 'leathercraft check' command on a hide to check
what kinds of items it can be crafted into. You can fashion objects
for other players by adding their name after the name of the item you
wish to craft.
You will attempt to finish the item until you run out of movement, choose
to stop or are otherwise interrupted. Unfinished leather items can be
finished at a future time using the 'leathercraft finish' command.
You can combine skins of the same creature together, creating bundles
which can be crafted into larger items than the individual skins.
If you know leathercraft and tailoring, you can tailor leather items
as if they were cloth. If you know leathercraft and hatmaking, you can
craft hats from leather using the leathercraft skill.
Leathercrafting has a variety of other niche uses when used in conjunction
with other crafting skills. Leathercrafted armor is not as protective as
metal armor, but it can be upgraded with forged studs or spikes, trimmed
with fur, or enchanted, runecrafted or consecrated for a variety of uses.
When you finish crafting a piece of leather equipment, you will see a
message like this:
You complete a fabulous southern silver megafox hide cap and dispose of the scraps.
