So I've seen a number of discussions of various aspects of Craft Magic (as in Rusticiani), but I haven't found the answer to one particular question. Using method 1, the casting equivalent, it describes the example of casting a spell on a horse that will trigger when the crafted horseshoes get put on him.
My question is about target awareness. I'm assuming you have to name a specific target when you use this method, is that right? Or can you name a categorical target? and if you do need a specific target, how much awareness of/proximity to the target do you have to have when crafting? And suppose you use an arcane connection; does that have to be included in what you craft? Nearby when you craft? Or do you finish the craft and then the spell is triggered when whatever you crafted is touched to the arcane connection?
If it matters, let's assume Craft: Woodcarving for the sake of argument.
