Default Dis-"Enchanted"

Artifacts can be a cool part of an IN game. But in a game that says repeatedly that its supernatural abilities are not "magic," I find myself really turned off by the term Enchantment, used to describe the making of these artifacts. Does anyone have suggestions for re-naming the skill?

My own thoughts so far:

--Artificing

--Crafting

--Shaping

--Making

--Working

--Composing (in keeping with the musical theme)

If any of these collide with existing IN terms, don't hesitate to point it out ... I have nearly all the books, but don't always remember every last bit of vocabulary.

I have been using "artificer" for anyone who makes artifacts, probably inspired by my Magic: The Gathering days.

"Imbuing", perhaps, implying the addition of supernatural power to natural objects.

"Exalting", for a similar feel, but with more implications of improving compared to the merely mortal.

"Transubstanting", although you'd have to change Eli's Attunement by the same name. :-)

Enhancing?

Resonating (as in 'resonating with the Symphony)

Hmm. Music terms. Infusing?

Tuning?

Corporeal artifacts: Imprinting, since most of it is simple imprinting the soul of the character onto the device.

"Composing" or "Recording" (for celestials, extending the music/Symphony metaphor)

"Weaving" (for ethereals, who see the Symphony as the Tapestry)
