Making a custom magic item

Post by ejacoby1 » Sun Jun 13, 2021 5:21 pm

I apologize if this information is somewhere else. I have been unable to locate specific "idiot proof" instructions on how to create a magic item. My character has boots of elvenkind that have now had a hide bonus into them and I don't know how to get this into the sheet. Also, the character has a hair comb with a CHR bonus. I could just add the bonuses manually, but would prefer to have it built into an item. We are playing DnD 3.5 with some house rules by the DM. Thanks in advance for any help with this.

On the Control worksheet, in the bottom section of buttons, click on the "Item" button under "DATA WorkSheet Visibility". On the left side, click the link for "Wond. Items". In the drop-down list titled "Wondrous Items QuickFill", choose your "Boots of Elvenkind". This copies the entry from above, allowing you to modify them.

Give them a unique name. Perhaps "Boots of Elven Stealth"? Change the cost to whatever they cost. Change the description to:

="+5 competence bonus on "&IF(b_Pathfinder,"Acrobatics-p","Move Silently and Hide")&" checks"

Keep scrolling to the right. You will see three consecutive cells with the Move Silently bonus.

The cell to the right of the 5 should have the column header, "Effect #2 Name". That's where you add the next effect. You want the two effects to look like this:

Permanency: Yes
Effect #1 Name: Move Silently
Effect #1 Type: Competence
Effect #1 Modifier: 5
Effect #2 Name: Hide
Effect #2 Type: Competence
Effect #2 Modifier: 5

For the comb with a charisma bonus, use the QuickFill to copy a Cloak of Charisma +2 to see how that is done.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you.
