A Light in Darkness
Magic Item Creation
In the world of Ravenloft magic, especially constructed magic, is a rare and precious thing. Creating anything more sophisticated than a simple scroll or potion is a significant undertaking and the following changes to the Pathfinder rules are intended to reflect that.
- Crafting cannot take place in a distracting environment
- Items cannot be crafted while adventuring or travelling
- Crafting time is double, 8 hours per 500 GP in the base price
- Creating scrolls requires only a quiet place and a desk, it can be done in a quiet inn, library or home office.
- Brewing potions requires an alchemist’s laboratory and a large table or workbench. Proper ventilation, drainage and space are essential. This equipment is generally not portable without special preparation and a hired carriage.
- All other types of item creation require sophisticated equipment and laboratories generally available only in the largest cities of the Core. Player’s wishing to craft such items must either rent space in a laboratory or purchase one in their own home (details available upon request).
