Craft Artifice Devices

You can create permanent gadgets, much like spellcasters can create magical items.

Prerequisite: Artificer level 3rd.

Benefit: You can create a wide variety of artifice devices (see Artifice Devices). An artifice device duplicates specific spell effects through advanced methods of mechanical engineering and technological design. Crafting an artifice device takes twice the time and half the cost of a device’s magical counterpart. To craft an artifice device, you must use up raw materials costing one quarter of the equivalent magical item’s base price. For example, if you create an artifice item that duplicates the effects of boots of levitation, such as a pair of hover boots, it would take 8 days and cost 1,875 gp to create.

You can also mend a broken artifice item (or its equivalent magical item) if it is one that you could make. Doing so cost half the materials and half the time it would take to craft that device. Thus, a pair of hover boots would take 4 days and cost 937 gp and 5 sp to repair.

Normal: Without this feat, you can only create temporary gadgets, as per the artificer’s gadgets class feature (see Artificer for more information).
