Obtaining tradeskills
To begin your journey as a craftsman, seek out Amarisse at the Delosian
Crafters Union in Delos. Once there, ASK AMARISSE GAIN <trade skill>.

Cooking, Furnishing, Jewellery, Artistry, Beverages, and Tailoring also each
have a permit cost of two hundred credits, these will need to be purchased
before the skills can be gained from Amarisse.

Additional tradeskills
To encourage a thriving economy and community, additional tradeskills carry an
extra cost to learn. If you'd like to become more self-sufficient, you may
purchase more tradeskill permits for fifty credits each, allowing you to learn
an extra trade skill. Each of these skills also carries a compounding lesson
cost to learn. So your third tradeskill (first additional skill) will cost
fifty percent more lessons to reach transcendent. Your fourth (second
additional) will cost fifty percent more again. This caps at 300% of the base
cost (base cost + 200%).

Use the TRADESKILLS command to see which tradeskills you have and which slot
