    Spell Range Personal

    Can spells with range of personal be made into magic items? (besides potions)

    Scrolls and wands, no problem.

    Rings and wondrous items it will get tricky for. Many personal spells, are stronger because they can only be put on the caster. The GM has to compare the effect vs similar items, NOT just compute a formula off of the item pricing guidelines.

    A fine example is ring of force shield, the cost is over twice as much and only half as strong as what the formula would have costed for a Continuous Shield Spell. And it loses the magic missile immunity too.

    By RAW, you can't make a potion of a spell with target "personal."

    My houserule is that a caster can make a potion of a spell with target "personal," but the price is four times normal (i.e. 200 gp * caster level * spell level).

    If I didn't want people to snag my houserules, I wouldn't be posting them on public messageboards!

    I'm pretty shameless about snagging other GMs' good ideas. If you like mine, then please snag away!

    [BTW, the messageboards at paizo.com are full of great stuff for Pathfinder.]

    I'm thinking this is a good rule, cross the board on magic item creation for personal spells.....So I will be adopting it as well.
