How would you handle a non-producing art form like Arcitechture or interior decorating (which IMHO is the same ability at this time in history, as well as with the granularity of ArM)
The Arcitech is the designer, he plans and maps out a building with decorations and so on. But he is not actively producing it, teams of masons, sculptors and painters will be building it.
So how is the Aestetic Quality calculated? Is the Arcitecht in some way limited by the skill of the artists and craftsmen?
How would people handle this?
IMHO the Arcitecht isn't limited 100% by the ability level of the producing artists and craftsmen. After all, he has the whole deal planned, he can advise them during their work, and have them re-do it if it doesn't meet his standards. So I'd say his effective Architechture ability level is capped by twice the ability level of the craftsmen or artists. This is assuming he works full time in his advisory capacity. he would be able to oversee a number of projects defined by his Leadership ability, although I don't quite know how to quantify this. A project should not be just a single statue or wall mural, but an entire room. Perhaps Leadership x5 # of rooms, so a high score is needed to oversee an entire mansion or palace.
