ok, updated with correct costs.

It's worth noting that the setting in which these items were first introduced we used a flat rate of $3 per mana. I never saw the step function between slow-and-sure costs vs. quick-and-dirty costs as being that useful. Also, I don't see many items with a higher mana cost as that unballaning.

Let me know if you guys see any other errors or if you have a list that isn't as elemental based.

Just a quick note to the list above... I always add Dwarven to my Bastard Sword builds so they can parry like everything else. Actually makes them quite a nice choice for those heafty sword and shield guys.

Another handy spell stone. I could imagine the 1 hex version being sold quite widely in a DF game. For $550 bucks, and activatable by anyone, its kina handy.

Materials Cost: A gem of $450 (1 hex), $1400 (2 hex), $7250 (5 hex), or $27,000 (10 hex).
Enchantments: Spellstone (5 mana, 10 mana, 25 mana, or 50 mana) - 100 mana, 200 mana, 500 mana, or 1000 mana.
Notes: -
Price: $3,750 (1 hex), $8,000 (2 hex), $23,750 (5 hex), or $60,000 (10 hex) / $550 (1 hex), $5,400 (2 hex), $17,250 (5 hex), or $47,000 (10 hex).

Well, I'm not much for the TL8+ magic items. When I run tech+magic games I usually use an alternate magic system like a variation of the old Mage the Assention magic system that was converted to GURPS back in 3E.

As for the ultra-cheap magic item set, there are quite a few in my original list, but I have just looked through the Magic book a bit more, and expanding from my typical "elemental+meta+enchantment magic only" approach. Here's some of the list I've been working on...

Item Name: Rope End
Description: A 1 yard rope with a single chain link at the end allowing it to be tied to another longer rope or to be attatched to a chain. Upon command this rope will tie itself and untie itself. This is often used to allow climbers to untie a rope after they climb down it.
Materials Cost: 1 yard of rope (1/2" dia., 1600 lb) $1, 0.21 lbs.
Enchantments: Fasten (Tie) - 90 mana + Fasten (Untie) - 90 mana.
Notes: Enchanted twice with Fasten. Once to allow it to tie itself, and once to allow it to untie itself.
Price: $5941 / $181

Item Name: Cook Pot
Description: A pot that magically cooks 3 meals per day without fire. Any food put in the pot cooks in about a minute.
Materials Cost: $
Enchantments: $20 Cookpot, Iron, 1 Qt. 4 lbs.
Notes: This item can be used as a normal pot as well.
Price: $2,990 / $110

Item Name: Sack of Food Preservation
Description: This small waterproof sack holds up to 5 lbs of food and keeps any organic material that can fit within from spoiling, drying out, etc. Typically used in bulk by salors to hold fruites during long voyages to avoid scurvy. Advanturers will no doubt find other uses for such an item.
Materials Cost: $20 Pouch, Belt, Large (5 lbs cap) 1/2 lb.
Enchantments: Preserve Food (5 lbs) - 100 mana.
Notes: -
Price: $3320 / $120

While compiling the above list of ultra-cheap items, I also jotted down the following as they seemed neet too...

Item Name: Dancing Endless Quill
Description: This quill is enchanted so that it can write without ink and so that it transcribes on paper everything the owner . It can even write upside down, in water, or in space... buy yours today!
Materials Cost: $2 Fine Quality Quill
Enchantments: Inscribe - 30 mana + Scribe - 250 + Scribe (Attune) - 100.
Notes: An extra 100 mana spent on Scribe to attune it to another person is included in the enchantment list above. As per the spell, this may be a seperate enchantment.
Price: $8,382 / $5,132

Item Name: Bracelet of Bladeturning
Description: This is a striking silver bracelet. While worn, all blades attacking the wearer must roll a contest against of this items power (15) and the attacker's DX. If the item succeeds the blade is turned, doing only crushing damage and becoming unready.
Materials Cost: $50 Fine Silver Bracelet, 0.5 lbs.
Enchantments: Bladeturning - 300 mana + Power 2 - 1000 mana.
Notes: -
Price: $42,950 / $26,050

Item Name: Adventuring Map

At any time a mage can activate the item with 2 mana to have it continue to fill in the existing map or to start a new map entirely. While the map is updating the current location isn't shown. The update lasts indefinitely or until the user wills it to stop.
Materials Cost: $0 parchment
Enchantments: Mapmaker - 100 + Know Location - 225 mana + Power 2 - 1000
Notes: Power 2 is used to power Know Location unless the map has been activated to update itself, in which case it is used to maintain the Mapmaker enchantment. That is why the current location of the map isn't shown when updating.

Enchantments: Detect Magic - 100 mana; Light - 100; Link - 200 mana.
Notes: Didn't use the base Detect Magic "Always on" enchantment as it was too expensive. Instead used the rules for Link to make it glow when a given knowledge spell detects something that is also enchanted on the item. This makes it much cheaper.
Price: $6,808 / $4,208

Item Name: Collar of Good Behavior
Description: An animal collar that, when put on an animal, keeps the animal in more of a generally good mood to anyone who doesn't disturb the animal in an agressive way.
