comment How can a wizard research spells from his list on his own without expending money?
It depends on how you view creating a magic item. You are viewing it has a exercise in pure crafting and following a recipe. That just one of many intrepetations on how magic item creation works. In Ars Magica and earlier editions of D&D, crafting magic items is a form of magical research. Creating Scrolls, Items, Potions, and Spells are all the same thing with different end results.

comment Targetting spells at illusions
This is a more general question than about magic missile. It is clear what he is asking in the first sentance. The answer to magic missile hitting a silent missile doesn't cover what this guy is asking. I am voting to reopen.

Yes it called common sense because they are both dealing with the same system of magic. If it was spelled out exactly I wouldn't be making my suggestion and the OP wouldn't be asking his question. As for your 2nd point, spell research is a cost the same as the price for creating magic items is a cost.

Spell research is just form of magical research the same as creating magic items. Half of the cost of creating magic items are concrete tangible items. As such they can be crafted with the right crafting skill. So it follows if a character doesn't want to shell out actual gps to learn a spell. That he has to gather part that is magical components. Then craft the part that isn't magical components. Likely vellum, inks, and experimental apparatus.

comment How to Roll a Check on Roll20 Via Chat Commands?
Yes this is less convoluted than my method. I will leave my answer up because that will allow people get into the nuts and bolts of the character sheet to craft their own custom rolls.
