Artificers in Mystara?

Weird red metals, dominions, immortals, hollow planets, invisible moons, and a lot of glorified magic zeppelins. It's all here.

Artificers in Mystara?

Post by Arnden Quartzspar »

I would like to know others opinions on using artificers in Mystara. I recently found a sidebar titled "Artificers in Other Worlds" in the new Artificer write up from Wizards. It specifically mentions Mystaran artificers. Do you/would you use them? And how do you?

Thorn's Mystara has artificers -- the initial writeup was a dwarven sub-class (like the dwarven cleric), but one could just as easily port it over to make it gnomish or human.

Here is where people can download The Artificer Returns and here is what it says about Mystara:
Unearthed Arcana: Artificer wrote:Artificers in Other Worlds

<snip>...in Mystara, various nations employ artificers to keep airships and other wondrous devices operational.
So I think your question is: "Where are there airships and other wonderous devices that might need artificers to keep them working?"

Alphatia would be appropriate for any kind of specialized wizard, and Glantri too.

Airships are found in several regions, though primarily in Alphatia (and Serraine, if you consider the Gnomish engineering as magic). Alfheim, Sind, Thyatis, the Heldannic Territories, Hike and Glantri also have aerial capability to some extent.
The Earthshakers and the Juggernauts are other constructs that would need this type of support.

Depending on how you feel about Dwarf Artificers, I think those can be used to simulate the craftsmen working at the Forges of Power in Rockhome.
