3.5 D&D You As Character RPG Questions & Discussions - Page 71 Jack of Trades says...
I'm not so much heading towards a combat-centric character as a dilettante as per factotum. I could see myself festooned with myriad wands, scrolls, etc, all ready to pull out and use as needed. The Craft Wondrous item feat looks appealing, as does the Font feat, and I'm not sure getting you to make everything would be fair. I'd like to see the first few items gained be INT+ and Charisma+ items to start with, with Wisdom+ to follow. I could just buy what scrolls, wands, etc. Needed and pay the full price rather than sacrifice XP. Once the level comes for me to decide on which feat to take, I'll have a better idea what will prove useful.
As far as the treasure goes, we are keeping it in a pool and drawing fairly on it, as needed? I'd just put a requisition in to you for a item cost or something like that? I see your archetype can draw out XP from items we don't need to fuel your creations, as well, which could be another way of getting what we need made.
Maybe I should be focusing on making alchemy products and stocking us up, that way.
