House rules – crafting

  • The caster can work for up to 8 hours each day.
  • Creating an item requires 8 hours of work per 1,000 gp in the item’s base price.
  • This process can be accelerated to 4 hours of work per 1,000 gp in the item’s base price by increasing the DC to create the item by +5.
  • As such, the caster can conduct work equal to 2,000 gp per day.
  • If the caster is out adventuring, he can devote 4 hours each day to item creation, although he nets only 2 hours’ worth of work.
