Q: Dear Sage,
Can my wizard craft more than one item in a day if the total cost to create the items is no more than 1,000 gp?
A: No. All items take at least one day to craft, so you can’t combine multiple cheap items into a single day’s work.
A small loophole to this rule is the scroll with multiple spells, which counts as a single item (see the D&D FAQ).
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
