Time for another pseudo-handbook list, this time Item Crafting!

There are tons of item creation feats, most of which only get minimal notation in the handbooks, so I went and made up a list just to get a better feel for the options. And there are LOTS of options.


Spell Completion

The standard spell completion item is the scroll. There is a section in Complete Arcane on variants for scrolls, but there are two big feat variants, namely Inscribe Power Stone and Etch Schema.
The differences are as follows:

Use-Activated/Triggered

The standard use-activated item is the potion. Again, Complete Arcane lists a number of variant items. There are however a rather large number of feat variants, including the triggered variants.
The full range breaks down as follows:

Spell Trigger

This is the wand family. It is pretty straightforward except for the psionic equivalent of staves, and the slightly obscure scepter.

Command Word, Continuous, and Use-Activated

Pretty much "all the rest of the junk". There is more psionic duplication here, but the real fun comes with another slew of specialized variants roaming about.

Weirdness

Just to include them all there are a couple of additional bits available.

And now of course someone should wander along and explain how to optimize (or ignore) all of these. I just get the list ready for use.
