Equipment and Tattoos in Home
The people of Home are expert craftsmen who take a lot of pride in every item the make. Every item is created especially for the person who is to own it. Anything less than masterwork quality is not considered suitable for use. I.e. Everything is masterwork here.
The people of Home keep few stockpiles of extra equipment around. Everything must be specially made and will take time.
Mundane Equipment takes 1 week/50gp of the item. Add a week for Darkleaf Cloth and Living Steel items. There is no metal in Home so the selection of equipment is fairly limited.
Weapons: Dagger (Obsidian), Club, Spears (Short, Long, and Normal), Quarterstaff, Dart, Javelin, Sling, Longsword* (Living Steel), Shortsword* (Living Steel), Greatsword* (Living Steel), Light Hammer, Warhammer, Battle Axe* (Living Steel), Greatclub, Shortbow, Longbow, Arrows (Obsidian tipped)
Armor: Padded, Leather, or Hide; Chain Shirt*, Chainmail*, Half Plate* (Living Steel)

Living Steel*: Any metal item, repairs itself at 2hp/day (or 1/day if broken), armor and shields have a special quality that potentially breaks weapons used against them (if opponent rolls a natural 1, they must roll a Fort DC 20 or their weapon is broken). Living Steel is actually an exotic type of wood.

The Painter of Home has access to a unique form of tattoo magic. Only the Painter of Home has the knowledge of how to apply and remove such tattoos (removal is very difficult, be sure you want one!)
The process involves a lengthy ritual in which the Painter and her apprentice take the person to be tattooed into a private chamber. The person is then put into a magically induced coma (they do not need to eat, etc) while the Painter does her work. The process takes 1 day/1,000 gp value of the base item. The Painter requires 5 days rest between each tattoo.
The Painter has many hundreds of generations worth of knowledge to draw upon. Pretty much anything in the CRB (of the appropriate item/slot type) can be done.
The tattoos themselves are very large, colorful, and intricate. The Painter can create whatever design the bearer wishes, from abstract patterns to symbols to animal and plant motifs.
Each character can get up to 16,000gp worth of tattoos. The tattoos work just like the item they are based on and take up the same body slot. Tattoos can only be placed on certain body slots (listed below).
