4) Horoscopy - This is the other main money-making area of the skill. You create Horoscopes which provide a choice-board-type set of 16 tasks in a 4-by-4 grid, and you gotta get 4-in-a-row to complete it. You can sell these to other players and on the GE. Horoscopes award experience lamps, gp, and occasionally other goodies.


Wait, so....you can buy puzzles to complete to earn lamps? So, basically, you're buying xp? ADD TREASURE HUNTER TO OSRS WHY NOT


In all seriousness, I most likely misread this, but in case I didn't, it seems fine, since you're not buying it directly, but people will most likely complain, so maybe if you had to disable xp lamp rewards via a right-click option to make it tradeable? Or, alternately, just leave it and brave the flames! (Though, most likely I simply read it wrong.)

I think you read it correctly. The lamps would be like genie lamps, giving 10 exp for every Level in that skill. So it's not like it's going to become a primary training activity. If each Horoscope takes 10-15 minutes to complete, they would likely award 5k or less exp per hour. You sell Horoscopes you make in Arcanistry for gp (that's the main use of it, it's not good for Arcanistry experience), so it needs to have a value. The way I envision it is all Horoscopes awarding the XP Lamp, and the gp reward / chance of special goodies to be based on the difficulty of the Horoscope. I suspect the cheap Horoscopes would be around 5k gp each and award an XP Lamp, 500 gp, and an extremely rare chance of special reward. Whereas the highest difficulty Horoscopes I suspect would be about 50k gp each, award the same XP Lamp, give about 25k gp, and have a much higher chance of a special reward.

I feel this is balanced. However, I'm open to suggestions should you feel differently. Prognosticated Prophecies are limited to 2 per day, so Horoscopes could be similarly limited.

Oh, that's fine then. You should note that in the OP.
