Sailing Art includes maritime cartography, sailing, fishing, makeshift boat repair, ocean navigation and sea-side survival. When 10 points are invested, your Character owns a personal Yacht-tier, a non-military vessel that can be used to ferry characters across oceans in Progressions without Proficiency Regals being spent for supplies or the trip itself. This ship cannot under any circumstances be armed, be destroyed, or be used to have any impact on military Progressions, but can generally outrun any military vessel chasing it, and even attempt to speed past blockades (with a fail chance), but cannot carry considerable resources, large amounts of money, or any troops, beyond a max of 10 characters.
Characters with 15 Sailing Art, who are currently reasonably active, may request a reservation for a House-Boat in Regalia, so long as the Character does not currently own another House in Regalia, and the Player's account has not reached the maximum rentable houses yet (Alt house-rental is not allowed). The reservation process involves sending a ticket into the Rp Com Discord Ticket Bot requesting a reservation with a Character Application Link. Reservations can be made so far as supplies last, that is to say, we only have limited amount of house-boats available in Regalia, and once they are all rented, we cannot provide any more, though we will periodically clear out and unrent house boats belonging to characters that do not have 15 Sailing Proficiency, or have gone inactive. When requesting a reservation, please also specify whether to reserve a House-boat in the Altalar districts (available for any Nelfin Character) or a House-boat in the Ailor district (available for all Races), or a House-boat further upstream of the river, so a walk away from the city center (available for all Races). House boats are fairly small, and do not offer as much space as a normal House can, so please only reserve a House-boat when you feel it would really enrich your roleplay.
Hunting Art includes the creation of traps aimed at trapping animals, the knowledge where to hit certain animals to produce a clean kill, how to track animals, and what signs to look for in disturbed patches of nature to identify whether a person or wild animal has passed by, and what wild animal this was. Hunting Art does not involve the actual killing, but rather the tracking, finding, and know-how of how to deal with such animals, the actual killing is up to whatever Proficiency of whatever weapon the Hunter is carrying at the time.
Horticulture Art includes the cultivation of edible plants, vegetables, cereals and grains and herbs. Horticulture does not include flowers or shrubbery tending, as this is part of Gardening Art. Those with Horticulture Art can generally turn any patch of land into a viable vegetable garden, or assist in the tending of edible crops, as well as recognizing edible herbs or useful plants from nature.
Pathfinding Art is the act of mountaineering, nature walking and general exploration of wild lands. This includes searching for caves and exploring them with the appropriate gear, finding passages in mountains, and exploring the lay of the land, while also knowing much about geological formations and terrains. If a Character has 10 Proficiency Points in this Proficiency, it can also be used in Progressions to lessen the impact of mountainous territory imparting a negative effect on an invading army, or to find ways around fortified positions to take enemies by surprise. This Character can also be used to perform geological surveys in locations.
Husbandry Art is the act of caring for animals, both in the sense of tending to their every day needs, but also acting as a veterinarian, and breeding animals. This Proficiency also unlocks further advantages at certain levels. Not having Husbandry does not mean you don't get to have a domestic Animal. The difference is that you cannot take a Domestic Animal out on the street or out in roleplay with you, unless you have at least 5 points invested, for gameplay reasons. Not having Husbandry Proficiency means your domestic Animals must stay home in your Rental Region.
The Character can have a Mundane Familiar animal in Regalia, some sort of Domestic Animal such as a Domestic Dog, Domestic Cat, Bird, Snake, Lizard, Turtle, Insects or Rodent. This creature may be with the Character at all times, and can do aesthetic things like reacting to characters, interact with the owner, be fed and petted etc, however it cannot be used for combat, or to fetch items, nor can it be killed without Kill Perms.
On top of the domestic animal, the Character has a rideable animal for use in Progressions. This Progression mount cannot be used in Regalia, but grants the character exceptional speed in Progressions, and also allows them to engage in mounted combat in Progressions if they have any Combat Proficiency that is also compatible with horseback-fighting. A Horse is the default option for people with this Proficiency, but each Race also has a unique mount with unique traits for that race. For example, Ithanian Ailor can make use of the Unique "Cheval du Ciel", or a flying horse. If your character is an Eronidas, for example, they cannot have a Cheval du Ciel. For the full list, consult the table below this one.
Your Character can do one of two things (or both at the same time). On top of having a domestic Animal of their own, they may also duplicate the reward for the 5 point investment for someone else who does not have husbandry, allowing them also to have a Domestic Animal out in the street, though only so long as the person with this Proficiency can reasonably take care of that animal's needs also. Additionally, your character can also borrow out the rideable animal from the 10 point investment to another person for use in a Progression. This can however only be done if that person has the 3 Point "Riding School" investment from Point-Buy Schooling.
