I was just reading a review of the game and read that the Crafting rules where particually good, and wondered if anyone could give me an overview of the system?

Intresting, so the only crafting is for enchanted items?

I probably misunderstood what you ment by crafting... I'm french and a bit tired today. If you talk about creating characters, creatures, powers and such... yes the system is very deep and flexible, and permit to create almost everything you want.

 I think he means crafting items. 

 

Like a blacksmith making a sword, or a wizard enchanting an axe.

crafting of "regular" items is easy (there is no magic/enchanting system in Anima, it's not DnD)

let's says we are making a longsword
- first, you look at the base difficulty in a table (120 for a longsword)
- you choose a material : that will modify your crafting skill, and limit the maximum quality you can get (iron longsword ? -20 to your skill; max quality +5)
- you decide how long you will be working on it : less than a week gives you a penalty, more gives you a bonus  (lets settle for 2 months, for a +40)
- you make your roll

If you match the difficulty, you have successfully crafted your item.
If you get less, the item will be of poor quality (-5 for each step below required difficulty)
If you get more, the item will be of good quality (+5 for each step above required difficulty; limited by chosen material)

each +5 of a weapon increases damage, speed, hardness... (and each -5 lowers it)
