Question about Theotechnicians-
So creating magic items...what level of change is it when a theotechnician is involved? I would hardly think it's impossible and maybe not even improbable.

Also, what if they don't want to create magic items for tons of people (through Dominion expenditures)? How long for an Adept to enchant a single +1 sword? Just enough items to outfit their friends?

Well, Theotechnician’s explicitly can’t create items in bulk according to their write up on pg 61. An Adept generates 1 Dominion for the purposes of creating minor major items for each month of work, though I don’t believe it says whether you can do other things in that month. As a minor but permanent magic item, costing 2 Dominion’s worth of effort, it would thus take two months of crafting to create a +1 sword.

+ZealousChristian 24 Ah I missed that they couldn't create in bulk. Thanks! Where do you get that it would cost 2 dominion for an item?

+Matthew Skail The rules for creating magic items are on pg 183: one-use magic items cost 1 Dominion, minor permanent magic items or temporary items with multiple charges cost 2, major permanent items cost 4, and a really powerful bit of minor magic costs 8, “though at that level they’re better treated as artifacts”.

+ZealousChristian 24 Fantastic! Thank you! Now of course the important question...can a character take actions over that month or is it dedicated work time?

+Matthew Skail if it were my game, I would say the work counts as a full-time job, so you could do other things like socialize and go to events and such, but you'd need to be toiling at your workshop for a big chunk of each day with only occasional time off until the project is complete.
