Once tool/weapon repair "goes live", can we also get round shields repairable? as in recover shield boss from a worn/beat shield and use boards to fix it. I'd think using "capped tier below the tier of boards" for the shield fixing/rebuilding.
i.e. decent boards to result in rough roundshield, fine boards result in decent roundshield and perfect boards result in fine roundshield. At MOST!
Should use *CARPENTRY* and preferably, have a Driik/Reemi/Sarto Craftsman give quest for XYZ (finding their missing kid?, fetching herbal concoction from a sage faraway for their elderly parent? Killing an invading Njerpez in region pointed like in wounded adventurer/bird thief/animal in forest cover?) and as reward teach the character how to fit the boards and attach a reclaimed shield boss. Having a roundshield also required.
Fitting boards should benefit of using hewing hatchet/broad axe* for straight, flush edges.

*I'll type that suggestion next...  ;D
edit: done typing Axe hafts and spear shafts  :D

Possibly require 1/2lb - 3/4lb leather for the shield rim.

I don't know, it hasn't crossed my mind. All I know is that we'll start with the basic shaft repairs first, and can think things further only after that has been implemented.
In any case I don't see we'll ever have a system where you can repair just everything.

As someone who used shields in real life the "repair" is more a replacement of the non-metal parts. The cracks and spall that fly off are going to be in several places not just a convenient "one board" cut.
