Let me say first, that I have never ran Wayfarers, but am looking to do so in the future with my group when I can finish off their pesky Pathfinder characters. Wink

I know it says that magic potions and scrolls could be sold by societies and guilds for 1.5 to 3 times the manufacturing cost. What do you guys usually charge for magic potions and scrolls? How available do you make them?

The cost seems really high, but I don't want to unbalance the game. I want to make potions and scrolls a possible avenue to the group without bankrupting them, but at the same time, make them costly enough that they don't walk around with bags of them.

Thanks
CW

As stated in the GM's book, the prices for creating magic items are proposed only as guidelines and should be adjusted as the GM sees fit.

You should therefore make them as inexpensive or expensive as required for your campaign. Since potions and scrolls are one-use items, you can still change your mind along the way.

"Potion or scroll shops" can't be found in my own game but they sometimes can be purchased in limited number from certain individuals.

In the World of Twylos book, it is written that the Alchemists Guild can produce 1st or 2nd Circle potions and scrolls for 100 sc and 400 sc respectively instead of the usual 300-350 sc per spell Circle suggested in the GM's book.

Additionally, in the Fourth Era chapter, it is said that the Alchemists guild can create Potions and Scrolls at the following costs : the spell Circle squared then multiplied by 20 for Hedge magic and multiplied by 40 for Hermetic magic.

You could play along those lines if it suits your game.
