Creating Potions

The creator of a potion needs a level working surface and at least a few containers in which to mix liquids, as well as a source of heat to boil the brew. In addition, he needs ingredients. The costs for materials and ingredients are subsumed in the cost for brewing the potion — 25 gp x the level of the spell x the level of the caster.

All ingredients and materials used to brew a potion must be fresh and unused. The character must pay the full cost for brewing each potion. (Economies of scale do not apply.)

The imbiber of the potion is effectively both the caster and the target, for the purpose of directing the spell's effect (the caster level is still determined by the potion's creator). Spells with a range of personal cannot be made into potions.

The creator must have prepared the spell to be placed in the potion and must provide any material component or focus the spell requires.

If casting the spell would reduce the caster's experience point total, he pays the XP cost upon beginning the brew in addition to the XP cost for making the potion itself. Material components are consumed when he begins working, but a focus is not. (A focus used in brewing a potion can be reused.) The act of brewing triggers the prepared spell. (That is, that spell slot is expended from his daily spell slots, just as if it had been cast.) Brewing a potion requires one day.
