Wands don't live up to their potential Wands in PnP sacrifice the versatility of scrolls for reduced costs. however, in TOEE wands cost more than scrolls. http://www.d20srd.org/srd/feats.htm#craftWand http://www.d20srd.org/srd/feats.htm#scribeScroll A scroll costs 25 x CL x SL A wand costs 750 x CL x SL Both of those prices are the same in TOEE and PnP... difference? A wand has 20 charges in TOEE and 50 in PnP. This means that while in PnP the cost per single spell cast of a wand is 15gp x SL x CL While in TOEE the cost per single cast of a wand is 37.5gp x SL x CL We go from being cheaper to being more expensive per cast. Scrolls inherently have the following advantages: 1. Wizards get the feat to craft them for free. 2. The level requirement to take craft wand is higher (a cleric is better off taking scribe scroll at level 1 than craft wand at level 6, since you need to be 5th level to take craft wand) 3. Wands do not allow you to craft on a per cast basis (aka, I need 1 scroll of this, 17 of this, and 50 of this), only 50 charges, no less no more. 4. Wands are limited to 4th level spells and below; scrolls have no such limit. 5. A stack of 20 scrolls can be split between multiple party members as you see fit 6. Scrolls can be sold individually, So 50 scrolls allow you to sell 20 if you are so inclined, while keeping the other 30. 7. You can stack more then 20 scrolls on the same inventory slot, wands do not stack in such a manner. 60 scrolls take up 1 spot, 60 castings of wands take up 3 slots. 8. Scrolls are cheaper (in TOEE) all those drawbacks were supposed to be balanced by the fact that wands were cheaper per cast than scrolls... but in TOEE the opposite is the case so there is no reason for anyone to ever under any circumstances craft a wand! Solution? Two options: 1. Alter wands to have 50 charges 2. Alter cost of wands so that it is 15gp per spell... aka 300 x SL x CL. So a wand of cantrips has a base cost of 150gp (and crafting cost of 75gp and 6XP) A wand of 1st level spells has a cost of 300gp (craft cost 150gp and 12XP) A wand of 2nd level spells has a cost of 1800gp (craft cost 900gp and 72XP) A wand of 3rd level spells has a cost of 4500gp (craft cost of 2250gp and 180XP) A wand of 4th level spells has a cost of 8400gp (craft cost 4200gp and 336XP) I think we should discuss which is the better solution. I will go ahead and attempt to implement whichever one we conclude is better.
