To know how to make a thing well, one must know equally well how it will be used. For the Solar craftsman, such practical enlightenment comes naturally, with but a touch. The lawgiver knows – instantly and automatically – how to use any device or object he has created, with the ability of a seasoned professional using a familiar tool.

Whenever he makes an Ability roll using an item he crafted himself – be it to swing a sword, carve with a chisel, or operate a magitech flying machine – he is treated as having a minimum number of natural dots in the relevant Ability equal to half his Craft score in the craft used to create it (round up). Additionally, if the Solar would add specialty dice to a roll when using an item he crafted himself, he may elect to exchange any number of those specialty dice for automatic successes.
