  • +8 gp, influence or labor (dojo)
  • +16 variable capital (classrooms)

Dojo: Counts as a training facility for training or retraining
Bath:After spending 1 hour in this room, you gain a +2 bonus on your next ongoing Fortitude save against disease
Scriptorium: Counts as masterwork artisian's tools for writing skills. A Scriptorium is where scribes do their work. It contains chairs and writing desks, as well as ink, paper, and other supplies needed to create or copy written works. Up to three people can use the room at a time for scribing scrolls or using Craft (calligraphy) or Profession (scribe).
Magical Repository: A Magical Repository is similar to a Book Repository, but specific to the study of the arcane arts. It contains shelves of books, comfortable chairs, and tables for studying and for scribing notes and scrolls. If you construct this room from scratch, it grants someone who studies there for 1 hour a +3 bonus on a Knowledge (arcana) check to answer a question. If you upgrade a Book Repository into this room, you either keep the original Book Repository's bonus on Knowledge checks or change its skill to Knowledge (arcana). An hour of study in this room also grants a +3 bonus on Spellcraft checks. The room grants an additional +1 bonus on Knowledge (arcana) and Spellcraft checks for spell research (see Research a Spell on page 86) and crafting magic items.
Lavatories: A Lavatory includes up to four 5-foot-by-5-foot private rooms for dealing with biological functions. If a building doesn't have a Lavatory, people in it must go elsewhere for this sort of activity. Depending on the building and settlement, a Lavatory might be an outhouse, a closet with a chamber pot, or a stool connected to an external system such as a cesspit or pig trough. If the building has a Sewer Access, you can automatically connect all Lavatories in the building to the settlement's sewer system (see page 101). The sanitation improvement from having a Lavatory mean residents, guests, employees, and others who frequent the building gain a +2 bonus on Fortitude saves to resist contracting a disease while in the settlement.
