Weekly costs: IQ 18 wizard \$200 (ITL 59) + \$50 (cost of living) = \$250 6 Apprentices at \$50 each = \$300 Lab rental \$150 Supplies \$50 Total / week = \$750 The IQ 18 wizard will be around DX 12 so it takes 5/74.07% or around seven weeks to produce one ring so total production cost is \$5063 Applying a minimal markup for management, facilities and sales gives a sales price of at least \$6000. Taking that as the rock bottom "Very friendly" result from ITL 166 gives a flat doubling of the listed magic item prices for common items. Weapon/Armor enchantment is easier and so doesn't need the doubling. __________________ -HJC Last edited by hcobb; 05-19-2020 at 09:09 AM.

Working on something for 7 weeks, you'd expect more of a mark up. Doubling the starting price on a Stone Flesh ring is more reasonable than the current \$4000 which is below cost.

Seriously, the magic item level in TFT naturally sets itself quite low if you make people personally create the items they want. It is one thing to calculate the modest cost of creating a stone flesh ring; it is another to make a character capable and willing to do it.
