Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Thu Jun 14, 2012 1:56 am

When enchanting certain types of magical items, a spellcaster is able to select the caster level that the resulting magic will be cast at.

For example, a 10th level wizard could scribe a scroll of fireball as a 10th level caster (so it will inflict 10d6 damage) or as low as a 5th level caster (inflicting 5d6 damage, at the lowest possible caster level for a 3rd level spell).

When enchanted, the name of each such item will end with the caster level in parenthesis.  This information is also shown in the item's properties list, with the spell name starting and ending with multiple z's. (The starting/ending z's mean nothing, but are just used to push the otherwise unused spell cast properties to the end of a very long drop-down list in the toolset).

Such items are really intended for PC use, as merchants do not recognize the value of higher caster level items made by this method, and will usually sell for the amount a similar item of the minimum caster level would go for.

The following types of items support selectable caster levels:
potions - scrolls - wands

You can use the links to jump to information specific to each type of item.

POTIONS

For a spellcaster to create a magical potion, there are several requirements that must be met.
1. Brew Potion feat Creating Items with Selectable Caster Levels (Scrolls, Potions, Wands) Ife_x2brewpotion
2. Empty Potion Bottle
3. GP equal to 50% of the base GP value of the finished item
4. Be inside a properly equipped magical laboratory
5. Other requirement(s) based on the desired item

The base GP value of a finished potion is equal to:
spell level x caster level x 50 (0-level spells count as 1st level for this)

Before enchanting such an item, the spellcaster should use the VC command ;;mi cl x, where x is the desired caster level. This caster level will be used until the spellcaster used the command again to change the caster level for enchanting. If not set, the minimum caster level for the spell will be used.

The spellcaster must also use the VC command ;;mi class xxxxx, where xxxxx is the name of the class he or she wants to use for enchanting (cleric, druid, bard, wizard, sorcerer, paladin, or ranger). This can be set one time if the caster uses only a single spellcasting class.

Once these requirements are met, the spellcaster can use the VC command ;;mi potion xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is replaced by the name of the spell to be brewed into a potion. An example of this might be ;;mi potion bull's strength to brew a potion of bull's strength.

When this happens, an Empty Potion Bottle will be used up, the GP cost will be deducted from the spellcaster's total gold, the spellcaster will gain XP Debt equal to 1/25 of the base GP value of the item (minimum 1 XP), and the finished item will appear in the spellcaster's inventory.

The following spells of up to 3rd level can be brewed into potions by those able to cast them:

aid
amplify
aura of glory
barkskin
bless
blood frenzy
bull's strength
camoflage
cat's grace
clairaudience and clairvoyance

lesser restoration

minor globe of invulnerability
mirror image
negative energy protection
neutralize poison
oculus' magical eyes
owl's wisdom
prayer
protection from chaos
protection from elements
protection from evil
protection from good
protection from law
remove blindness and deafness
remove curse
remove disease
remove fear
repel vermin
resist elements
resistance
restoration
see invisibility
shield
shield of faith
strength of blood
tempest's shielding wind
true strike
ultravision

water breathing


Note: Clerics of Asis brewing potions of cure wounds will automatically brew the special Asis versions of such potions.

SCROLLS

For a spellcaster to create a magical scroll, there are several requirements that must be met.
1. Scribe Scroll feat Creating Items with Selectable Caster Levels (Scrolls, Potions, Wands) Ife_x2scribscrl
2. Blank Scroll
3. GP equal to 50% of the base GP value of the finished item
4. Other requirement(s) based on the desired item (such as proper patron deity for some spells)

The base GP value of a finished scroll is equal to:
spell level x caster level x 25 (0-level spells count as 1st level for this)

Being inside suitable library will reduce the gold cost.

Before enchanting such an item, the spellcaster should use the VC command ;;mi cl x, where x is the desired caster level. This caster level will be used until the spellcaster used the command again to change the caster level for enchanting. If not set, the minimum caster level for the spell will be used.

The spellcaster must also use the VC command ;;mi class xxxxx, where xxxxx is the name of the class he or she wants to use for enchanting (cleric, druid, bard, wizard, sorcerer, paladin, or ranger). This can be set one time if the caster uses only a single spellcasting class.

Once these requirements are met, the spellcaster can use the VC command ;;mi scroll xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is replaced by the name of the spell to be scribed to a scroll. An example of this might be ;;mi scroll bull's strength to scribe a scroll of bull's strength.

When this happens, an Blank Scroll will be used up, the GP cost will be deducted from the spellcaster's total gold, the spellcaster will gain XP Debt equal to 1/25 of the base GP value of the item (minimum 1 XP), and the finished item will appear in the spellcaster's inventory.

Any spell that a spellcaster can normally use can be enchanted into a scroll this way.

WANDS

For a spellcaster to create a magical wand, there are several requirements that must be met.
1. Imbue Focus feat Creating Items with Selectable Caster Levels (Scrolls, Potions, Wands) Ife_x2craftwand
2. Bone Wand
3. GP equal to 50% of the base GP value of the finished item
4. Be inside a properly equipped magical laboratory
5. Other requirement(s) based on the desired item (such as proper patron deity for some spells)

The base GP value of a finished wand is equal to:
spell level x caster level x 1250 (0-level spells count as 1st level for this)

Before enchanting such an item, the spellcaster should use the VC command ;;mi cl x, where x is the desired caster level.  This caster level will be used until the spellcaster used the command again to change the caster level for enchanting.  If not set, the minimum caster level for the spell will be used.

Once these requirements are met, the spellcaster can use the VC command ;;mi wand xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is replaced by the name of the spell to be imbued into the wand.  An example of this might be ;;mi wand fireball to imbue a wand of fireball.

When this happens, a Bone Wand will be used up, the GP cost will be deducted from the spellcaster's total gold, the  spellcaster will gain XP Debt equal to 1/25 of the base GP value of the item (minimum 1 XP), and the finished item will appear in the spellcaster's inventory.
