New Background: Artificer
Skills: Investigation, Arcana
Tools: Artificer’s Tools*
Equipment: Bits and bobs (springs, screws, bits of metal, etc.)
The artificer can craft simple clockwork devices, much as rock gnomes can. Rock gnome artificers already possessing this ability may instead choose something thematically appropriate as their background feature.
Artificer’s Tools: Resembling clockmaker’s tools, these are several small implements that aid an artificer in quickly crafting and enchanting complex clockwork or simple magical items. These tools also allow an artificer to add their proficiency bonus when attempting to open locks or remove traps.
