I'm not sure on the final ruling.
See the following earlier post on the subject.
http://nwgamers.forumotion.com/t936-magic-item-usage-value

Brad once said I could create one specific item per level. Not sure if thats for uncommons & rares or for any items.

I've taken for my items
Ruin Staff
Staff of Defense
Shimmering Armor

I think Chris wanted
Sun Sword

But if uncommons & rares are at -5 levels, I'm not going to be able to upgrade my stuff for a while.
Go ahead and make a request for the list. only 4 out of 17 slots filled so far.

Yes, Ember can learn to craft one item per level she's attained, and can't switch once chosen. She can, if she's already chosen 4, choose her next 12 to all be 16th level, since that's the level we just finished though.

"But if uncommons & rares are at -5 levels, I'm not going to be able to upgrade my stuff for a while."

Tell you what, you can waive the -5 level penalty 1x/tier on creation of uncommons and when epic can craft 1 rare.

Can't be changed, but each item is scalable. Ruin staff for instance can be upgraded to any + of your level to create, and tiered items can be upgraded at appropriate levels as well. Neither counts towards the 1 item per level choices. Did that address all the ruling Q's?

OK got it.

Go ahead and make a request for the list. only 4 out of 17 slots filled so far.
I think I'll reserve 5 slot for future items, so that leaves 8 open slot if they want something.

Hey Mick.

We got a few Rituals in the last adventure. I would like to use one of them as this ritual, which we can share, and you can have the rest.

Shadow Walk
The viscount’s army is a half-day’s march ahead and will beat you to Fernwich. Or would. Shadows stretch until they drape over everything as you step sideways and let the shadows lengthen your stride.
Component Cost: 500 gp
Market Price: 2,600 gp
Key Skill: Arcana (no check)Level: 12
Category: Exploration
Time: 1 hour
Duration: 8 hours

You and your allies walk through shadows stretching out of the Shadowfell, taking advantage of the strange disparities between distance in your realm and that one to travel quickly. Multiply your overland travel speed by 5 for the duration. This ritual functions only in the natural world.

Upgraded items don't count toward the limit? Or is it upgradable items of the type Ember can already create?

With the craft item feat, Ember can craft 1 specific magic item per level she's attained. For instance, if at 8th level she picks "ruin staff", she could make a +1 ruin staff. When she's 13th level, she can upgrade that staff to +2 without needing to repick 'ruin staff +2' (or +3, etc). If she didn't pick 'ruin staff', she doesn't know the magic to upgrade it at all. If one of her items she can create has a (heroic tier) version as well as a (paragon tier), the same pick can create both or upgrade one to the other. If she didn't pick that item, she can't upgrade the heroic item to paragon. Is that clearer?

Makes sense to me.

If someone else can create items now (17th level), do they get to choose 17 items to create, or do they only get to pick 1 item per level they advance starting at level 17?

Let's keep it simple. 17, just like Ember. But, it ought to be 10 heroic & 7 paragon. Otherwise you'll have an advantage over Ember for picking it late.

Ruin Staff
Staff of Defense
Shimmering Armor
Sun Sword

Are picked a heroic. They can upgrade to paragon (+3 or +4) without out taking a paragon slot. Correct?

Shadow Walk

Fine with me.

How many rituals did we get? 16th level or lower?

To make traveling and item collection a bit easier...

Ember may want to select Hat of Disguise and Bag of Holding (or something similar).

That way each of us could have several fake IDs and alternate appearrances to get through security.

15 Re: Buffy-verse Item Creation on Tue Apr 03, 2012 6:25 pm

Although I'm human and blend in a bit better than most of the party, I think a Bag of Holding or a Handy Haversack would be very useful.

I don't believe humans are any more uncommon than any of the other races in Brad's world. Once they have your description, you'll need a disguise as well.

Humans in the Buffyverse are like Whites in the real world... a minority race in Los Diablos, a majority race in the US, a minority race globally. All the other races are a standard D&D mix from there. (With the exception that Devas are very rare...)

Not sure if you've selected an uncommon paragon item yet, but this may be worthwhile:
Ghostlight Candle:

Ghostlight Candle
Level 15 Uncommon

This plain white wax candle can burn every day without diminishing.

Wondrous Item 25,000 gp

Property
This candle sheds dim light 2 squares in all directions and never burns down (but can be extinguished).

Power Daily (Standard Action)
Use this power while the candle is lit. Until the end of the encounter, creatures within 2 squares of the candle lose the insubstantial quality and can't become invisible.

I'll be spending a lot of time Incorporeal once we get to 21st, but it'll really help out against wraith/ghosts.

We've been meeting a lot of incorporeal lately and the battle have been pretty long because of the 1/2 damage...

lmao!! Lone Vengence shakes her head in agreement...

Yes, lots of Vampires, Ghosts & incorporeals, lots of Succubi & shapeshifting Demons, not too many Ghouls and stinky/ugly creatures, and not too many Dragons and non blending in magical creatures. Basically only monsters that can perpetuate the Buffyverse myth among the living that undead & magic don't exist save in stories.

FYI: I took the Alchemy Feat, so if anyone wants non-magical Alchemical items of 18th level or lower let me know.
