    Ok, so I did a search on Dart Traps that found a thread on exactly how they're made. But I can't seem to make one. I created a Tinkerer with 30 tinker (like the thread and the wiki say) and when I tried to "trap" a crate made with my GM Carpenter it said I couldn't. So I got 30 Carpentering on a char and had him make the crates. But I'm still not able to "trap" one of them, I just keep failing. What am I missing?

    You need a lockable chest, which means you need carpentry and tinkering to make from scratch.

    Both need to be skills on the SAME character? IE my carpenter can't make the chest for my tinkerer?

    I think the answer is yes. Your 30 skilled carpenter may be able to make a lockable chest with a 30% tinkering talisman or 5 skill and 25% talisman, etc... I tried using a carpentry tali on my tinker though with the woodworkers bench and you need the minimum real skill even though a small crate shows as 100% success chance. The tinker tali idea on the carpenter probably needs minimum skill as well...sorry.

    I thought I've read somewhere in order to make lockable items you need at least 10 carpentry and 10 tinkering on the char and I would suspect that would have to be real skill since talismans only affect the odds of making the item. I usually just have a newbie char that has 30 tinkering and 30 carpentry, and they have >90% chance to make the crate without any talisman.
