The Engineer says...

Much appreciated.

In this case, I'm most likely going to be the mage doing the upgrades (Or to be a bit more accurate, the guy doing UMD checks to fake being a mage to do the upgrades)

By default, the cost of improving a magic item is based on the difference between crafting the two different versions wholesale (IE, crafting cost of +2/+3 weapon: 4000/9000, crafting cost of upgrading +2 to +3: 5000). Is this what you meant, or did you have any additional tweaks in mind?

That is the crafting cost but spells need to be involved too if I remember right unless you are crafting out of Mitheral which is naturally +2 but hard to work with unless trained and Adamantine which I believe is +3 naturally. Some star metal (From a meteor is naturally anywhere from +1 - +4. If you happen to find and get a hold of some Kur metal that starts off at a natural +5 to a +7 depending on its purity *smile* So crafting armor or weapons out of these various metals can cost a bit more but it is well worth it.

If you are wanting to craft wands and other magical devices then yes you will need the spells.

The Engineer says...

Level one Artificer ability explicitly allows me to craft items without access to the spells I'd normally need. (Which is a good thing, since in spite of being a magic item crafting class, I don't get true spells.)

Now, this same ability states that for every such spell I don't have, I must make a Use Magic Device check, with a DC of 20 plus the caster level of the spell in question. This check can be retried, once for each day of the crafting process (With one extra retry on the last day of work), but if I fail every time, the crafting process fails and the components are wasted.

(Note: this reliance on UMD checks is the big reason I mentioned low charisma was a handicap.).

That's because this is flipping awesome. I am having a great time being me! KN, you have developed this perfectly. What tension and you let us discuss things just the right amount. This is great role playing, well, kind of!

I have been thinking of this since we first started discussing it. I have a strange mind at times and it takes me places few would understand. I can be in the light one minute and very dark another.

The Engineer says...

Indeed. We do have an item of concern though, there are just the three of us, and none of us are really suited to go on the front lines.

Give me another 5 levels, and if we somehow haven't been joined by someone by that point, I'll change out the feat I had in mind for then, and bloody well build us a substitute frontliner. A golem won't be as good as a true PC, and it would take a lot of money to keep it competitive, but it'd be able to take the hits for us all right.

But we have to find a way to make things work until then.

So… strategy discussion?

Crossbow is going to be my default go to for now, and depending on whether or not I have enough advance warning to apply a Bane infusion to the weapon, I'm going to go from great with it to only mediocre.

Support is my real game though, between making scrolls and spell storing infusions, I can supply you guys with any 1st level spell, on any spell list. Unfortunately, I can do so a lot less often than the people who could cast those spells naturally because it costs me xp and/or money every time I do it, and in most cases I will need at least a minute of advance warning. So yeah, while an awesome amount of flexibility, it needs to be saved for that one obscure spell that will save our arses, I can't keep up with true mages in terms of how often they cast per day.
